O Christmas Tree

Dec 15, 2009

December has just flown by this year. What were just the first-of-December exclamations of joy are now the wow-we’re-less-than-10-days-until Christmas jitters, and I’m already planning for 2010. To kick off our Christmas season the right way, Matthew and I purchased our lovely tree the day after Thanksgiving, much to the chagrin of some. (I’m happy to report […]

Last night Matthew stayed up until 4am, reliving his college days with World Civilization IV (a classic shoot-em-up-take-over-the-entire-globe computer game), so tonight at around 6:30 p.m. he was ready for bed.

Kelly Corrigan was phenomenal; so inspiring, hilarious, and down to […]

This morning was no […]

This is our nephew Landon–I think he has got to be one of the most beautiful babies in the world. We don’t get to see him as much as we’d like…but Anna and RJ post lots of pictures and share their adventures on their blog so we’re able to get our long distance Landon fix. […]

Summer is finally coming to an end here in Roseville! We had our first day of cloudy, breezy weather today, and it felt great. Saying goodbye to Summer means a departure from pool parties at the Martin’s, sundresses, 100+ degree heat, and an incredible electric bill. Overall, Matthew and I had a great summer–trip to […]
