The older boys played together without coercion...and all had fun. At least this one time.
Gunner George climbed atop all surfaces and due to him being a) irresistably cute and b) the baby of the family was not reprimanded or disciplined, but photographed, for doing so. Ahem.
Mason and Smith dressed up as Ninjas for Halloween and their wonderful school held a Halloween Parade around the neighborhood. (That's Sawdog under the green umbrella.)
This cuteness happened.
I enjoyed a girl's weekend in Salt Lake City with these lovely ladies.
Thanksgiving in Billings with the Myers, Nuttings, Bedfords, Perrines, Schuylers, Bones, and Freeses. I stole Lane's pic because I didn't take a single picture.
Mason (and Smith) lost both front teeth in time for Christmas. "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth..."
Ma and Pa Myers came up to help move us into our new house. Before leaving, they took the monkeys to get a tree, set it up in the living room, and helped decorate it. It blessed all of us tremendously!
Sawyer made his debut as a shepherd in the Nativity skit at church.
He killed it...obviously.
All 4 boys played together peaceably...for 5 minutes, but whatever. It happened.
Imagine four monkeys hopping about, tearing open gifts, exclaiming excitedly, smiling and laughing and occasionally bickering, while two parents sip coffee and watch the scene unfold. That is our Christmas picture...in your imagination...because I didn't take any real photos. Shameful, I know.
Ma and Pa Schuyler came up for a visit and to celebrate 2nd Christmas. I managed one photo of that.
We invited our friends over for a post-Christmas Thank-You-note-writing-extravaganza.
Okay, I'm all caught up now. Did I forget a few
hundred things? Yes, but I know you'll forgive me. Hope to see you again soon...ish. :)
