Quick Recap

Using mostly photos:

Baby Colin Wulff joins the world. Liam is excited (and mostly potty trained)!


Colin is a very nice baby, and his feet are very big!


Aunt Sandy comes to visit!



Baby James gets christened.


I am his godmother. John Beyrer is his godfather.

Baby James wears a tuxedo that I bought him that is all white and even has a bow tie. But the bow tie makes him angry. And I suspect wearing a bow tie would make me angry too.
Loch took this pic!

the day ended with a picnic on Gail and Joe's upstairs new carpet and pizza!


Seaniebear turned 3!
and we had a party at Beanie's dad's house and everybody came!
It was a superfun party!
Last week at work, Shannon started insisting I call her my little star. That girl gets some crazy notions!
Tomorrow, we will talk about the 30 for 30 list and New Hampshire!
