QUIET PLEASE!

I know crying comes with the baby territory but the wailing and gnashing of gums has gone on for about 5 days now and I'm about to lose it. No amount of rocking, bouncing, singing, or feeding seems to soothe. So, rather than go off the deep end I thought I'd share it with all of you. (Somehow this might relieve my anxiety).
I really do love the little fellow.

The "Good Ol' Days"

So, we dug out the old Nintendo the other day and introduced the kids to video games. We had a great time playing Super Mario and Duck Hunt. It's funny after so many years you can pick up a control and still remember how to warp to world 4. We got a clip of Emma shooting ducks - I have to stand just as close as she does.

Uh Oh! Looks like we've got a thumb sucker!
We love him in spite of his bad habits :-)

In with the new




We celebrated the end of 2007 with some good friends; playing games and eating like it might not be allowed next year. The dads and the kids watched the NY ball drop at "midnight" - 10 p.m. - and then the little people did a bubble wrap stomp to ring in the new year!

The Christmas lights and decorations are put away. The house feels bare but clean. I'm looking forward to wrapping up in a blanket and reading a few good books during this snowy January.

Here we are with this new year before us. We'll be musing over our resolutions for a few weeks...they will surely include abandoning food altogether, regular physical exertion, more zeal for FHE, scriptures & family prayer.
Here's to you and your resolutions! Happy New Year!
