I continue to be tickled and pleasantly pleased with the wonders and happenings of our winter season - here in the good ol' South. The 11th of December is our oldest son's birthday and the start of our festivities. Luke continues to be our steady anchor, and we are very proud of his excellent grades.
Despite his chaotic sleep schedule, he managed to ace every final and continues to hold the house record as the fastest controller in the south-east. We don't know how he does it, but are grateful he is enjoying school..finally.
The day after is our Wedding anniversary, and although we were married December 12, we tend to celebrate October 12 (the day we met). A couple days after, Bailey and Marshall arrived from Washington state. We had them sneak into Toby's school Christmas party and he was beyond excited to see them! Bailey was happy to visit his old elementary school -- but Chimene was a bit staggered to see how many teachers remembered who Bailey was....he seems to leave an...unforgettable impression...shall I say? (we love you Bailey).
Christmas passed peacefully and the visit with the boys much too quickly. It was nice to have Marshall here and at times it felt like he had never left his place in front of the PS-3.
What is wrong with this picture? Nothing. That was the bewildering truth of it. When I asked these two pre-arch-enemies if they would sit together for a pic, they both agreed simultaneously -- so the winter wonders continued. (By the way, Tate did great in her school play 'A Christmas Carol'. )

All is well. My heart is full...and I found more chickens on the side of the road. Remember, no matter how hard life gets, keep your head down..and just keep pecking...?
