Our Week(s) in iPhone Photos: 12/22-1/11

Happy New Year! We headed back into reality, and it was a rough transition from vacation… We had a really great holiday with Uncle David and Aunt Angela, and Aunt Rebecca, and Grandma, and then we drove off to New Hampshire for a week!  Daddy gave Mommy a new computer for the holidays, which was a lovely surprise, but it is a Mac and her old one is a PC, so it has taken some time to get her sealegs; the photo uploading, in particular, is not quite the same as she is used to. Unfortunately, the longer we wait, the more daunting this task becomes – and we have other posts just piling up: I turned 2 last Friday, and had a mermaid party to show you guys, for example! SO, instead of our usual, somewhat organized, captioned weekly post, we’re going to throw a bunch of pics from the past few weeks at you and call it good enough.  Sorry! Hopefully we’ll be back on our game soon.

12/22 – 12/28

Highlights from this week were Cole decorating cookies for the Christmas feast our temple prepared for a local shelter, me playing with the Christmas mouse at Grandma’s house, Henry getting to go to Camp Grandma for the week while we were away, taking a swim in the giant tub at the time share in New Hampshire, playing in the Rey Center, and Cole trying out single-blade ice skates for the first time.

12/29 – 1/4

This week’s pics are all out of order, but I’m pretty sure the only people left reading are Grammy Boo and maybe Cousin Amy, so I’m just going to power through and get this over with. Highlights – skiing, craft & story time at the Curious George Cottage, playing with our new toys, couch naps, our harrowing trip home in the snow & our sushi dinner stop, ad Cousin M’s birthday party.

1/5 – 1/11

IMG_6049These pictures all uploaded in backwards order for some reason, but we probably have even lost Grammy Boo by now, so ONWARD.

IMG_5993Poor Cousin Amy came to help us prepare for the party, and then was stuck sleeping over because of black ice, so she to sucked into Mommy’s Crazy. Exhibit A: Icing the cake at 2AM.

Cole was supposed to go skiing with Coach on Sunday, but he slept through it.

Phew! That was rough.If any of you are still with us…why??? We’ll be back to a more organized mess around here soon, we hope!
