but not just any surfing. Blog surfing. Oh yes, just one more thing to put on my list of things I'd rather be doing than the dishes.

I found this

The Crafty Crow

and it leads to so many oh so great places.

Just for Jam

One of my very best friends (whom I don't see/talk to nearly often enough) gave us a very cute outfit when Eliza was born. (Ok, she was two months old but when you live across the country - 2 months old is practically just born).

I just talked to this friend for the first time since we saw her in July and it just so happened that Eliza was wearing the outfit.

Coincidence? I think...yes.

But it was a great one and great to talk to an old friend.

So this picture is just for you, Jam! Love ya!

And this one is just because she's silly!

Little Tidbit

Found something I just wanted to share.

I ran across this site a while ago and thought it was pretty useful. And now, they have put together some babystep checklists to getting your house in order. Perfect for me, something small I can actually see being checked off to help me feel accomplished.

Hope it hits the mark for some of you too.

It's Been a Great Year!

So many things have changed this year, all for the better. We didn't get our Christmas letter out this year, sorry. Just know that we love you all and we hope you had a great holiday season.

Here's a few picture highlights from our Colorado trip for Christmas. We had so much fun hanging out with the Colorado Merkleys and the Wandering Merkleys (Scott and Brandee - they are currently in transition).

The best engineered sledding hill ever!

Cousins are the greatest!

The car Addy made for Eliza. It was sooo sweet!
