The Weddings of 2012

In 2012 we attended seven weddings. Michael was in two of the weddings, Ella was in two of the weddings, and I was in one of the weddings…and then there were the showers, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, and rehearsal dinners.

Christmas 2012

I wanted to  share a few of my favorite pictures from the holidays.  We had a wonderful Christmas, in fact we celebrated for an entire week.

Bob & Alaska

These are Max’s adored pets.  A dog named Bob and a “cat” named Alaska.  You might think that the cat looks suspiciously like an Alaskan Huskie.  But you would be wrong.  It’s a cat. I’ve given up trying to prove otherwise.  Alaska the “cat” was a gift to Max from Aunt Tessy on his second birthday,...

Welcome Fall!

I guess you might have noticed, many of my blog entries of late have been centered around fall.  I love autumn, it’s my favorite season.  I’m not a fan of heat and humidity…give me the cool, crisp days anytime!  Soup, windows open, leaves crunching, sweaters…love it!  The next best thing will be a fire in...
