Happy New Year!

We had a great time at the canal last week over new year's. It was nice to have the family time since J has been gone a lot lately. We did a lot of relaxing, eating, reading, playing games, and enjoying each other's company. Looking forward to many more getaways at the canal as A gets older. Many great memories were made, including the fact that we apparently now drink beer out of a can. Lynda (who doesn't drink beer) bought us canned beer at the store instead of bottles - maybe it was her way of hinting that we should actually be brining our own beer! Ha! We also played scattegories for the first time (old game I believe so the rest of you are probably over it) and it was super fun. Anthony started pulling himself up to his feet this weekend which was entertaining for all of us to watch - before that he'd only been pulling up to his knees. Now he is really all over the place - hard to keep an eye on this kid! We are headed to the canal again this weekend to spend time with all of my girlfriends from college (and their families) and I can't wait! Nine adults and 5 kids (plus 2 on the way) should make for a fun weekend! It was pretty foggy/rainy while we were at the canal -
great weather for a fire and hot cocoa inside!
Anthony loved the fire in the fireplace.

It's always fun for me when I can actually get down on the ground and play with Anthony -
love getting out of the chair!

First time wearing the carhartt overalls - dad was proud!
Anthony will crawl over anything if he is trying to get from point A to point B. As evidenced by this photo where he is crawling right over Midas, the poor dog. Our dogs are so good with the babies!
Jared made us homemade ravioli again - delicious!
Look how professional this looks - I am so impressed with my husband!

The handsome Luke man who is doing awesome at sitting up by himself now!
