Happy New Year

We spent a quiet evening at home with our girls last night, ushering in the New Year.  The girls went down at 8:00, and we were asleep before midnight, but up again about 12:30 for several hours with two little, teething girls who did not want to go back to sleep (and made that fact known quite vocally).  I have stayed up until the wee hours on New Year's Eve in the past, but never quite like that...ah, the joys of parenthood!  They were up at their usual time this morning (7:30), smiling, silly as usual, and ready for a new day in a new year.  It's hard to be cranky looking into those bright, beautiful faces and realizing how lucky we are. We wish you all a happy and healthy year in 2009.  We can't wait to see what adventures are in store for us!

  5. Love the fish face! I make that face to Sera all the time. It's hysterical watching her trying to figure out how to do it. She'd be so jealous if she saw that picture. LOL

  6. She just figured out in the last day or two how to make that face! She cracks herself up doing it. It's one of her many silly faces. LK can't do it though.
