Impromptu attempt at taking Christmas card pictures...

What happens when, on a whim one morning, you decide to try to take a picture for the Christmas card and you have two adults (one who hates to smile for pictures), a baby, a dog, and the self timer on a camera?

Well, this....
Whoops. Forgot to take the hoodie off.


Where's Layla? And Eli is looking away.


Same thing...


Close... But not quite the one :).

Eli is looking away, my hair is covering up half of Layla's face, and J.C. isn't smiling. Let's try another.

Not it.

Also not it.

This one was the best one and I seriously thought about using it. But, Eli is looking away and he really is the main attraction to the photo (in my opinion, anyway), so I think we're going to try again on a different day with an actual person taking the picture.

Spiffy new look

It seems like every blogger I know has been changing their blog templates, so I decided to follow suit. Like it?

Baby on the move

I left Eli here:

only to come back 5 minutes later to find him here:



which means this has become an urgent problem (soon to be remedied):

P.S. - Happy six month birthday Eli! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. Your dad and I love you so much!

I'm a big fat quitter. Literally...

The self-inflicted torture of Friday fess-ups will resume after the holidays. We'll just call it my new year's resolution...

I know... Pathetic.

A first...

In Wal-Mart today, I passed by a lady who noticed Eli and said to me "Wow! What a big baby!". Of course, she didn't ask me how old he was, but it was nice to hear something other than "Wow... He's so tiny. I have a 3-month old niece/grandchild/etc. that's soooo much bigger than him."

Can you tell I have a complex about this?
