Recent happenings and catching up from Christmas! I shouldn't wait so long, because now I don't have much to say but I still want to post pictures. :) First of all, Antoine's birthday. I made a couple cupcakes with some of the cake batter for his cake and let him start 'celebrating' before lunch. I had the camera in the kitchen and caught him praying before he ate his cupcake. :) Sweetness....

People we don't see often enough...

If you ever want to do something nice for me, buy me a sock monkey.

Cameron started the day off by shooting his first rabbit. :)

And a surprise bridal shower for Lori.

And lastly, we had Christmas with Steve's family over New Years. The first evening we were at his mom's house for supper and 'The Game'. Then we headed out to a big house at the Chesapeak Bay. It was a great place to be with so many people. Now of coarse, I'm wishing I would have ventured out and about more even though it was blitzing cold and windy. Wish I would have taken more pictures. Steve took some for me. :) I mostly stayed inside and tried not to be sick. But even inside, I pretty much left my camera up on the shelf.

The brave ones who went out for a walk in the ice and snow.

Hot Chocolate...

Hmmm... something going on with scotch tape here... 

I think this was beyond brave. Some of the guys and one girl (Larissa :) ) went out and jumped in the bay. Just to give you an idea of how cold it was, the next morning it was frozen over! And none of them got sick. (or at least if they did, they didn't let us know!)

A bridge through the bamboo out to the docks. And the one morning we saw quite a few eagles out over the bay. It was the first time I saw a bald eagle- they are soo beautiful!

until next time...



  1. I totally looove the picture of Antoine praying! How dear is that!
