I found this picture on my iPhone. I think Ellie took it and posed him; he's holding a photo from our wedding :)
The Happy Birthday Girl!
I shared about her fun party here.
"I stomp on the alligator!"
The brothers have been playing hunting all week in the backyard!

Love me a baby fresh out of the bath!
He fell asleep on the way home from the ballet studio. I took him out of his carseat and set him on his feet while I turned around to do something. He lie/lay/laid (Auntie Leila, if you're reading this, I need a lesson) down in the grass and went back to sleep!
I don't think Santa realized that the bath fizzy bubble things were going to turn the water blue and pink!
"I make a monster! Roar! It's not going to eat you!"
(pretty good artist for age 2?)
I took the girls and their friend to a Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival at a local Christian church last weekend. It was a beautiful Christmas pageant with over 180 costumed roles of adults and children. There was beautiful music (Latin, Marian, etc), handbells, harpist, and trumpeters. It's apparently a festival that has been celebrated for over 600 years. So cool! At the end, that big tabernacle thing in the middle was opened and there was the Holy Family with a real newborn baby. I hope to make this a Christmas tradition! This year it fell on the Eve of the Epiphany, which was a beautiful way to continue to celebrate the Christmas Season.
I hope you've all had some pretty, happy, funny, and real moments this week!
