Goodbye 2008

What can I say about 2008? William went from "almost 2" to "almost 3".... Lillian was born... and overall it was a great year. William is in to Handy Manny (both the toys and the tv show) and loves to eat ramen noodles. He hardly wants to eat anything else but noodles and fruit. Lillian is so sweet- she wakes up smiling and goes to bed smiling- she's too young to give us much trouble. She started sleeping through the night nearly every night in early November- when she was about 3 months old. We all get pretty good sleep. The kids really love each other (I hope that never changes). We welcome 2009 and especially spring weather, camping trips, playing outside, working in the garden, bluegrass festivals, drive-in movies, and going to the park!

The Dreaded Christmas Pictures

Just like me when I was a kid, my kid hates having his Christmas picture taken. I have been trying to get a decent one for weeks, and it goes something like this "NOOOOOO! waahh.. no way!" He was laying on the floor crying and screeming "cheeeese". As a result, we didn't get a good picture this year. I'm working on putting some older pictures together for a photo card.. the best I can do. Here's a picture from today. If you look closely, you can see the tears.
Before I forget- here's what William says he wants to be when he grows up:
"A doctor, a cop, and a monkey!"
