It's hard to be cool in the eighth grade.

Ah, the eighth grade, such an awkward time, especially when it's right in the middle of the British Invasion. I mean, who could compete with Twiggy? 

Still, my school picture shows my attempt to do my part to fit in by wearing my navy blue Poorboy and my Yardley Lip Slicker!

Why is it that 13-year-old girls don't have to go through that awkward stage anymore? No fair!

We had some sweet company for a few days...while Jay worked, Kate and the boys came to play. 

Mia, I was thinking about making some pancakes. With chocolate chips.

Such a happy baby, this one.

Listening to me explain (attempt to explain) how the mantel clock works.
The German hat. Always a favorite.

You can't let him near the water until you're ready for him to get in;
he will fight you to get there. Loves bath time.

This one loves the outdoors.

Thank goodness we had some sunny weather.

Banks was all about Dubs. This was right before a pre-nap golf car ride.

Fire pit!

Another contender for the bedhead award.

They're back home, safe and sound, and it is SO quiet around here. We miss those sweet noises.

Photos are my kryptonite.

Santa brought me a new computer...and moving into it has been an adventure! Between a faulty power cord on my old one (making it tricky to get files from it) and the new one having less storage (they want you to live completely in the cloud), there have been a few challenges.

Photos are my downfall; I had more than 36,000 on my old computer! Crazy. The past few weeks I've spent time choosing the keepers and deleting the rest. It was an overdue task, for sure.

Oh, and those more than 36,000 that were on my old computer? Yeah, they're backed up on an external hard drive...just in case!
