Long time...

So I guess it's been a while. Maybe another picture post to update?

Christmas seemed to follow fast on the heels of Thanksgiving this year. This was maybe the first time this happened to me--does that make me an adult? I felt like I really had to be on my toes to get everything bought and decorated. But it turned out to be a really good time, so it was worth it.

Here's a pic of Jack at the children's museum being an elf.














My brother Tom and his family came to visit, which was super fun. This photo shows most of our crew at the local zoo. Seriously, people. For a town our size, our zoo freakin' rocks!




Evan's family has a cool tradition of opening these pull-and-pop-out-a-prize "crackers." You've probably heard of these, but I never had until I married into their family. I think they're a British thing, originally. Anywho, the person who wins gets to keep the prize, but everyone gets a crown. So here are a couple of crown pictures.







Jack had an absolute BLAST playing with his cousins. It would be so awesome to live near more family!





And then maybe the biggest changes over the past couple of months have been in Danny. He has gotten so very interactive. And he's managed to gain a little bit of weight--though he's still a long, thin guy. I don't have a picture of it, but in addition to rolling over, he loves "walking" around in this little wheeled car, and he's really good at it. :)





He's also getting his first two teeth on bottom right now (one has poked through) and I fed him his first rice cereal today. He's such a sweet little guy.
