Sharing holiday photos…



Hello my friends. I meant to be back here earlier, but have been dealing with family illnesses which have kept me from the computer. The latest has been a three-night mystery fever of Daphne's. I'm sure you all have experienced how to-do lists go by the wayside when the kiddos are sick! Besides spending multiple hours in the doctor's office for two days running, I've been carrying around a fussy little fifteen-month-old who does NOT want to be set down (and she has learned to say "No!" very emphatically!).

So, instead of a post about the past year which I had planned or the upcoming year (and an exciting announcement I have to make), I'm just going to share some photos from our Christmas, which we spent with Maia's beloved aunt and uncle and their new baby, and call it a day. Enjoy.

    THAT’S NOT FAIR! NO FAIR! NO FAIR! (about your big news.) In fact, an old college friend used to tell me that if you weren’t aching to tell us, you wouldn’t have mentioned it. But since you’ve posted such beautiful photos, we all forgive you.

    Lovely photos. I especially love Daphne’s expression in the family shot on the stairs – she looks like a girl with opinions!
    I too am burning with curiosity over your news…

    Happy New Year! Love the photos, esp. the family photo. We RARELY have a photo of all four of us, as my husband doesn’t like taking pictures. Can’t wait to hear the big news!

    Oh, sorry about being a tease! I didn’t mean it that way. Just that I want to sit down with my thoughts for more than two minutes to write it up. I shouldn’t have mentioned anything. I’ll try to post tomorrow. We are still sick here — Daphne’s super fussy, I have a cold and am feeling run down — but maybe I’ll get enough time to sit down at the computer…

    Living life with fairy wings is one of my favorite things about being a mother!

    Love the fairy wings….my daughter as a set and loves them – wish they would fit me…I might would be inspired to be a Cleaning Fairy or some other such nonsense. :)
