I need a vacation.

Anyone want an 11 month old? Koby and I brought a virus back with us from WA. I'm healed and I thought Koby was too, until 4 this morning...James and I probably had about 3 hours sleep last night. Maybe? I'm going crazy.

Anyways. In spite of what WA gave us, Christmas was great. The whole family was home and it was so much fun. We all sat on the stairs Christmas morning, just like when we were kids, waiting for my parents to" check if Santa came". Christmas is so much more fun when you have a kid. And Santa didn't forget Koby:)



The Snuggie. Are you wondering why the heck everyone you have talked to got a Snuggie for Christmas this year? Well, Wonder no more. Emily and James got Sean and I Snuggies for Christmas, partly as a joke. Well, I don't know how Sean's is working out, but I know there has not been a day/night that my Snuggie has not been used. Its a blanket with sleeves! I wish I would have thought to put my robe on backwards and make millions.

Rachelle took some family photos for us this Christmas too. It was really nice of her and we got some good ones. See Below.

So, another reason I need a vacation... Last Saturday, some crazy lady caused a three-car accident. I was one of those three cars. She made an illegal left hand turn, forgetting to yield, and ran into the man in the lane next to me who swerved and cut right in front of my car. We missed him but hit the lady's car. My first official accident, I must say it was less scary than I thought. I am so thankful Koby stayed home with James, but poor Emily had a minor war wound or two (some swollen knees, sore neck, etc.) I'm grateful no one was seriously injured. I feel bad for the lady. She must feel awful. I think I'll be driving even more carefully now:) So 500 dollars later, a new car seat, and a rental car.... We are praying the lady's insurance will hurry up and give us our money back.

I've decided James and I have bad luck. haha. But at least we have a great family:) What more could we ask for?

Gorgeous pictures! Sorry about the accident and the virus, but you can't have everything, you know.

I broke a mirror on the morning of my wedding...seems to have worked pretty well for us, but we only have 1/2 a year before our luck will change (for better or worse, I don't know).

The Family pictures are AWESOME!! You guys are way too cute! The bad luck with you guys seems to always be centered around the car...maybe you just need to trade in for another one and see if your luck turns around. As for the sleep deprivation, I believe there is no form of torture worse than that. Wish I was there..I'd take him off your hands for a night and let you sleep. As you can see...I don't do much of that anyway!

Cute family pictures. How do you get Koby to smile at just the right moment! I'm jealous- Chole refuses to look at the camera whenever I get it out.
