Now that I have your attention, I have some sad news. This post is a random update of Christmas for the posterity and all. And the worst part? I have pics from about 3 days worth of 2 party weeks. Sorry Steed family, not a single pic . Sometimes my dad is a little too good at taking pictures. Maybe he'll read this and email me a few...
(here's the sewing i was talking about. i sewed a sleeping bag, it was kind of a big deal. everyone else sewed oh 3 or 4 or who knows how many. but i completed one, and james got derek's old one)
Christmas always includes plenty of Hicken/Baldry festivities. The freezing hayride the Monday before Christmas, 14 or so cousin parties, a baby shower, new years eve, grandma's band dance all those just with Derek's cousins, I love it all, he has a great fam.
(i may not be in any sledding pics, but i was the last to leave the hill, it was so so so much fun. I can be quite the riot when i'm not cold)
Then we had swimming and bowling and more playing with my family. All the while Derek (and me too sometimes!) working at all hours getting everything ready for the MOVE! The thought of moving is always more stressful than actually doing it. I mean it sucks, but hello...worth it.
OK, that was rushed and boring, but it had to be done. And if you made it to the end, you can see my fav picture right now. So blurry but so cute!
