It has been way too long since I have posted anything.  So long, in fact, that I almost didn’t start again.  There has been so much that has happened that I’m not sure how to cover it all.  So I am just going to highlight some of the happenings of the past and try to do better in the future.  Really, what more can we do than continue to try to do better?

We did end up getting a Christmas tree this year :)  Here is James putting lights on it while Ethan is patiently waiting to put the ornaments on.

I’m a little sad though because I realized I didn’t take a picture of the finished product.  Here’s the closest thing I have.


As you can see my mom and dad flew in for Christmas this year.  It was so nice to have some familiar faces with us.  They actually flew in on Christmas morning, which meant that we waited to open anything until after we picked them up.  I’m proud of Ethan for being so good about it.  I think he was more excited to see them than open his presents anyway.

While my parents were here, we ventured up to Berlin for a day and a half.  It was really an amazing city with lots to see, but it was sooo cold, which made it a little bit on the miserable side.  We are looking forward to going back sometime during the summer so we can really enjoy it.

Here are some pictures of a few of the things we did and saw…a lego santa, snow, pastries, snow, jewish museum, checkpoint charlie, the wall, spaghetti ice cream…Did I mention it was cold?  because it was cold!

Whenever we are with my mom she has us take family pictures.  So here are a couple that aren’t so bad.  I sure do look huge, though, and I cringe every time I see these.  You can see my double chin in the second one :/



That’s about all of the backlogging I can handle for now :)  Maybe there will be more to come…maybe not…we’ll see.
