Where the HELL I've been

Oh man...

So I'll spare all the nitty gritty details, but it goes something like sick baby, sick me, sick baby health scare, holidays, husband loses job, holidays, responsibilities, the end.

And to think I created this blog in February, but held off until things "settled down". Pfff, some timing!

And for any worry, Owen is now fine and gaining weight. We are armed with Epi-pens and blood test results, and all will be right with the world if these damn molars would hurry up and cut through the gums. I see you molars! I can see you taunting me under there, just man up and show yourselves!

Casey now has a new job, which has also brought it's own headaches, but we have much to be thankful for.

And the holidays? Well, I take a deep breath in every five minutes daily, and tell myself this is a time to be joyful, a time to celebrate and enjoy and be grateful. Working on that.

I seriously had visions of fun crafts and advent calendar ideas, gift idea posts, fun holiday outfits, cold weather flower planting, and house decor updates. There's still time for some of that, so we'll see!


We decided on a whim one afternoon to attempt a family picture with all of us present (it's previously just been the kids) by ourselves, armed with nothing but a tripod, a camera remote control, and a Barbie duct taped to the front so I could yell, "Look at the Barbie!!!" before Casey hit the button.

Here is the good, the bad, and the poorly edited:

I title this one: What did you just get on my brand new white sweater?! Alternately titled: My sweet biggest angel and her big grin.

'Tis the season! Hope everyone's has been Merry and Bright! (And it's ok if it hasn't, sometimes Merry-ish is just fine, too)
