catching up

Finally, existence around here is moving much slower. I’m actually not loathing my computer anymore. Can you believe those words came out of my mouth? But it was true. I got to a point where I knew that if I had my computer on that I should be working on photo shoot stuff or jewelry orders. So instead of embracing my third child after my last photo shoot on December 22 ( a day after my mom’s arrival) I needed a break all together. Much has happened these past few weeks. Heck, I haven’t even posted about Thanksgiving which was a big event all by itself. This is what I’m going to do for the next few days. I’ll just pick one event at a time and post about it daily until I’ve run out of events. To give you an idea of how many days I’ll be doing this here are some of the things we’ve done recently and for which I have pictures to share: Thanksgiving (already mentioned), Annie’s day at the hospital, shopping with the Cheslers and Parks (I’m only posting about that because the girls looked so adorable that day…ha, ha), a visit to the National Christmas tree, a performance and lights at the Temple, Lucy discovering how much she loves the girls bean bags, Annie’s Christmas program at school, planting Christmas bulbs with Daddy, Christmas Eve dinner with all of Mike’s classmates (hmm…I don’t know if I actually have any pictures from that), Christmas Day, Grandma Indiana’s visit, Annie as a mermaid (not really an big event, but she looked so cute), New Year’s Eve at the Guises’, and New Year’s Day at the Cheslers’. Can you stand the excitement? Trust me, you’re not going to hurt my feelings if you’re not interested in all or any of these happenings. I just want to “document” them here for myself and for any friends/family who are interested.

So where to begin (picture me tapping my finger to my temple while I think). I suppose I’ll go chronologically starting with most recent and moving backward. That brings us to today with the Cheslers. As many of you may have guessed Matt and Trang’s alma mater is USC. Today was the Rose Bowl Game in which USC played. Matt and Trang, in turn, decided to have a thing at their house which included some dang, hot chilli, corn bread muffins, and lots of other goodies. The girls kept busy with some wooden food and stainless steal pots, pans, and utensils that Brady gave to them for Christmas. Thanks so much, Brady, for being a thoughtful little bean! And thanks to the Cheslers for a fun evening. I’m sorry to admit that we didn’t stick around long enough to see who won the Rose Bowl, although USC was ahead by 21 with Illinois at zip.
