Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas family and friends! We hope you had a nice holiday. We had our first white Christmas in DC, and it was wonderful.

DC is beautiful in the snow.

But boy was it cold. (No, that's not me; it's Neptune, chilling at the Library of Congress.)

Tennyson didn't mind. He loved trudging through the snow (it was almost as deep as he is tall).

One of his favorite snow activities was burying his mom in the back yard.

(My little snow angel took it in good stride.)

All told, it was a wonderful, relaxing Christmas.

Oh, and thanks to everyone who sent presents. Tennyson should have enough new gadgets to keep him busy for a while. And that's the best present you could have given us!

Seven sweet, sweet years

No matter what I say, it's going to embarrass Suzanne. But, I really do love her.
(Here's hoping for seven times seventy more.)

I think we all feel like a bit of our kodachrome has been taken away. We'll miss you Aunt Bob.

Suzanne is definitely pregnant!

(In case you hadn't already heard.) The little thing has been wreaking havoc on Suzy's insides for a few months, and we both got to feel it kick for the first time last night. All signs indicate we'll have a second bundle of delight (terror?) by early June.

Now if there's one thing I remember from 3rd grade history class, it's that the father gets to choose the baby's gender. I'm having a hard time deciding. What do you think?





Where has the time (and baby fat) gone? Happy birthday T-Rex!

Thanks for the presents, grandmas and grandpas!

Tenny's well equipped for a solid fourth year.
