This Blog Has Been Taken Over (at least for 1 post)

While this blog is normally written by an extremely eloquent and amazingly expressive woman, today it has been hijacked by her three favorite boys so that we can write about her.

As L is getting very impatient waiting for his turn, I figured that he would go first. The following is from L:

“Loimnhgkjhgfdsaq” – Which L explained means: “I love my mommy and think that she is friendly and good. She loves us and she likes us to clean up and she likes to wear sun glasses.” That is all from L.

S is now anxious for his turn. The following is from S:

“I love mommy. I think that she is awesome. She is the best mommy in the world and she will always be. I think that she is good at knowing things that me and L like. Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.” (I am not quite sure what the last sentence has to do with you. However, S said it. So, much like the sun glasses line from L, I decided to keep it in.)

Now for my turn.

For all the years that we have been married, I have marveled and admired your sense of honor and goodness. You have always looked out for the best interests of others ahead of your own well being. You have always strived at becoming better and at helping our family become better. Getting married to you may very well be my smartest decision. I love you very much. Merry Christmas.

Baby Bump

I received a Babycenter email today, informing me that I am now 35 weeks pregnant. I am not sure, I believe it - it feels like I entered a time warp and suddenly I am five (-ish) weeks away from delivery. At the same time, I have been pregnant now for over eight months - which does seem rather long...
Needless to say, I am not any less confused than normally. We are, however, all so very excited for this little one to join our crazy family!




Thank you, Jenn, for taking these. You are an amazing photographer!

Hitchcock Rerun?

This is what we saw, when we looked out the windows on Sunday:





I have never before seen hundreds and hundreds of birds converging on a few residential lawns. It was eerie and I was reminded of the old Hitchcock movie The Birds, where birds flock into and attack a small town. The sight was incredible - and the sounds were overwhelming; they would peck around the lawns and caw and then suddenly set off all at once, their wings hushing in unison. Strange and incredible at the same time.
