A Recap

I've had a case of computer-itis lately. Every time I sit down at the computer for more than 15 minutes at a time, I start getting a pounding headache and I feel the need to hurl. I know it is related to the parasite growing in my belly, but it limits me to blog-checking, email, and an occasional episode of Chuck online.

So I'll be snappy.

Here is Christmas:


Good times. Here we try to invite the spiritual into our Christmas holiday by dressing up in my fabric scraps, a few tablecloths, and Steve's ties:



I'm not sure what this is a picture of, but any chance I have to publicly humiliate my husband . . .

(I'm just kidding, honey. You know I love you!)

This is how we plan to fatten up Lindsay:

I know, we are great parents. And to prove it, here is how we teach our kids to pray:

Lindsay hasn't quite figured out the "on your knees" part.

Allison has become quite the little pack rat. Here is her "den" that I found behind the couch. In case you can't quite tell, there is an old apple, a pen, some twisty ties, paper, clean diapers, a comb, a package of old nasty lunch meat, a bowl of dry cereal, the container of honey, and some dress up clothes. Surprise!!!


And here is how we feel about winter:


Goodbye!

Welcome to parent's 101! You'll survive. We did, or (did we?).

Anyway kids will be kids. But then they grow up, And we wonder if we passed parent's 101.

Loved this update! I've been missing you! I hope the little parasite doesn't keep you from your blog too much longer. :)

That's great! Now you get to add to your lovely bunch! We are so excited for you!

Mama D said...

Hey, as parents we survive any way we can do it... I love your pictures and am glad you could update. Hope you're feeling better soon and have an uneventful pregnancy. (Relatively speaking, of course - is any pregnancy uneventful??)

Good to hear from you my long lost friend!
I am glad I'm not the only one with surprises behind things! How brave of you to take a pick and I assume clean it up. I just keep the couches where they are and pretend it will all magically go away.
Hopw you're doing well. PLease call if you need anything.
You always have great pics! I love these as well.

Allison obviously knows how to be prepared (to help Lindsey out in times of need)...packing away clean diapers. Smart girl.

Spencer Family said...

Hey Jamie! Congrats on your pregnancy!! Your girls are too cute... I love your little pack rat. We're still trying to wean Bailey from that path. Although, I will admit, her taste has improved in what she wants to keep.

With a den like that, Allison MUST be a Gammon! ;)

Make sure that butter is real butter and not just margaraine...butter'll fatten Lindsay up really quick!

Looks like the same stuff Spencer eats. Lately it's been sweets. I really want to say not but the kis needs the calories and he comes by his sweet tooth honestly too.

I love your daughters stash. Sounds like something she'd do. I miss you! Excited to see you soon.

Tricia said...

Lovely... your family is so...so...so... WEIRD :) Just kidding. If you family is weird then that means I am weird too. Love the pic's and the commentary on everyone. TWO WEEKS and I'll get to see them in person!!!! YES!

Patty said...

I love the pics! And your comments on each make them even more enjoyable! I hope the computer-induced nausea wanes soon. I miss your posts.

Okay, don't you love finding old food behind the couches? It just gets worse and worse with each child. Are you guys finding out what your baby is? How far are you? Let me tell you, that third one is the kicker, but once you can handle three, I figure you can handle pretty much anything!
