Happy 10th Birthday, Owen!

Welcome to the Club, man! I get a little extra sappy on your birthday, Owen. There are no words that truly explain how loved you are. You have given me a title I never thought I would have: AUNT. And you are Charlie’s #1, his partner in crime, and his best friend. Yes, always a little sappy when I reflect on what you mean in our lives, and so thankful for all that you are. Even those smelly farts 😉





Wrapping Up All Things Wrapped

We are home (boo!), and laundry is done (yeah?). There were just a few goodies remaining under the tree, so we enjoyed more holiday cheer this evening!

Stockings of candy, movies, and tropical socks!

New traditions and old traditions – no way would I forget their Year books <3

The kids worked hard to pick out the perfect gifts for us! They are the best! They chose a personalized Cubs mouse pad (which Andy is going to frame and hang!) and a baseball stadium puzzle for Daddy, and smelly goods, chocolate, and a Pete the Cat tumbler for me! Perfect, guys! You did wonderfully!
