Ah, I have so much to tell you! Can you believe that I haven’t even blogged about Christmas yet?! All in good time, I suppose. Which might be NEXT Christmas since Joseph seems to be outgrowing naps…
Our trip to Oregon to visit our families was wonderful!
We stayed for three weeks and didn’t want to kill any member of our family- which tells you how awesome they are!
Sometimes, when I am away from Oregon for a while, I forget how cloudy/rainy/misty/foggy it is. Especially in the winter. Think the “Twilight” movies…(or don’t, if you aren't a hormone-crazed teenager or pitiful housewife like me.)
Also, Joseph kept saying “AHHH! The air is so FRESH!”
As shown in the previous post, we had a little early birthday party for little Isaac.
It was SO nice to have him as the center of attention!
This visit we also confirmed that Isaac. Loves. Babies.
I suspected since he runs towards strangers with strollers at the park/mall/store, but MAN! He loves them!
Loves them…well…almost to death, actually. Just wants to squeeeeeeze them and cover their face with a blanket!
Luckily, my older niece was there to instruct him on how to hold her new baby sister…
It was so nice to see my boys playing with their cousins.
We are kind of in we-are-the-only-friendly-people-around- isolation round here, so it was good to see them get some social time.
The low point of the visit was when my eldest had to have IV sedation to fill seven cavities. SEVEN, people! Okay, let’s never mention it again- ok? Mom guilt! Mom guilt! I brush his teeth- his teeth are rotting anyway. The end!
But, he IS now the proud owner of a silver tooth- which he will be happy to show you in another post!
The highlight of our trip was when Brian and I got to go to the Oregon coast BY OURSELVES for 2 whole nights!!!
It was pretty much heaven- and it is always so relieving to re-discover how much we actually LIKE each other!
I mean, of course we LOVE each other, but the like sometimes gets buried under the “ARE YOU GOING TO HELP ME UNLOAD THE DISHWASHER OR JUST LAY THERE???!!”
A big THANK YOU to our parents for taking care of the boys!
All in all, a great way to spend the month of January!
