Merry Christmas, everyone! Of course, Eli is currently sleeping soundly after a long day of way too much candy and excitement. Hey, family- for high res images, just click on the picture to go to my flickr page, and either order prints directly from flickr, or choose the 'all sizes' (make sure you click the biggest size) icon above the picture and save to print later. We had an awesome Christmas (as usual) and we hope everyone is resting safe and sound this evening. Good night, everyone.

cold weather

We're all snowed in. Basically we've been doing nothing but sitting around on our butts, and going outside occasionally to play until we're too cold. I've been knitting nonstop and I've made a handful of hats- here's one I made for Eli. I think it makes him look like a little gnome.

today was day 2 of our "WINTER BLAST 2008!!!!!®" and after spending pretty much all day inside yesterday, i was feeling pretty stir crazy. so, we layered up (eli ended up with like 7 layers or something ridiculous like that) and headed out for a long walk, about 4 miles total. (just to the grocery store and back.) newsflash: it's rather cold out. but, we have procured the necessary ingredients for split pea soup, so hurrah for that!
