Happy Birthday!

Ben's 25 B-day 270My Daddy and Michael, back in August.

Today is my Dad’s birthday!! Hey Daddy, I hope you had a wonderful day, and I hope you know how very much I love and admire you. Thank-you for always setting such a wonderful example to me, and thanks for instilling in me a love of the gospel. I love you!

Happy Birthday Grandpa 147And they love you too!

Fun Pictures

I realize this is the 3rd or 4th picture post in a row, but looking through pictures today I found a whole bunch of pictures I’d completely forgotten about. It was really fun to be reminded of lots of things I’d forgotten about. I thought you’d enjoy them too. So, in no particular order, here they are!

Piper's Birthday 082 A couple months ago – Lily had woken up way too early, and we both fell asleep again while I was trying to get her back to bed.

Together 041I think most of you who read our blog have already seen this picture in our Christmas letter this year, but for anyone who didn’t, this was the kids’ picture that we took for Christmas.

Thanksgiving 189The first time Michael sat up all by himself (back on Thanksgiving!) Doesn’t he look so proud? :)

Some recent Pictures

For some reason I just haven’t felt like blogging lately. Not sure why. So since I’m not feeling particularly talkative right now, I’ll just let some recent pictures (mostly) speak for themselves.
