Wow! It's the last week of 2014 and the portrait project has come to a close. Don't worry, I'll continue it onto 2015. ;)

Hope you have a happy and safe ringing in of 2015!

Excuse that nasty nose...all Liam wanted for Christmas was his two back teeth.

"What?! No way! It's New Year's Eve?"

You may think he is mid-sneeze. Alas, just trying to get a laugh.

Today I am especially grateful for a Swedish company that produces the perfect pajamas hands down. I grew up seeing these dala horses around the house per my dad. Now Liam can sport these jammies as a perfect reminder.

Thank you Hanna Andersson !

(and Grams and Grandpa!)

Citrus Lane

Our December Citrus Lane box arrived and it's a good one!

We got a cute book called "Little Pea" who has to eat candy for dinner and he hates it (very clever. SPOILER ALERT--he gets spinach for dessert), a Hape counting stacker, two yummy pouches, and a stuffed dog Liam is going to love giving kisses (placing the dog to his nose and smelling it then rubbing his ear with it).'s the smart baby....being smart.


Crusty, sticky baby face to match the crusty, sticky keyboard I now have.

I love a good out-of-focus Christmas tree light photo.

Love that those last few toes don't touch the ground yet. Long live the baby fat pad.

Sure Liam, please do play in Kitten's bathroom, no problem.

Much better, the kitchen drawer. The knives have been relocated as of this week.

Is this helpful?

December certainly snuck up on me.
As did this cute close up.

Alma College, not to be confused with Alabama (as MANY southerners do).

This is one example of time well spent during Liam's nap. Although I'd venture to say that lunch and Gilmore Girls counts as well.

We had a wonderful time visiting family in Gettysburg for Thanksgiving! We love seeing everybody and luckily Liam is a good traveler.
