In a year when I started thinking about Christmas in October, I was still a last minute Annie
Highlights include:
Fabric Spray Paint - the results are too painful to share - and the quest to make the perfect Hawk and Dove Tshirts for my nephews, Loch and Seaniebear. They came out better than expected...but the boys didn't know what the heck they were. I saved my bacon by making them initial shirts (which were awesome gray shirts with blackwatch plaid letters - cuz I roll like that!)
James had his first Christmas, which was very busy, and he tuckered out his mom and dad for sure. He has been crawling all over the place like a mad man.
Seaniebear got some pirate hats from Aunt Gail and Uncle Joe:
We went over to Inez and Tom's for dinner (and it was soooo good!)
and played with James some more!
The next day there was a BATTLE OF THE CLAUSES! Clausi? Clauseys?
"I'm so embarassed! I thought I'd be the only Claus here!"
Lochlain, puppet mastering Superman! Isn't he so grown up looking?
Carter, Loch and Seanie hiding from the monster!
Looking for the scoop!

James wore stripes!
So, picture those things along with a gabillion other things and you'll know why I still haven't caught up on sleep!
But, I did get Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Workshop on DVD! I know, don't hate!
One secret of the family:
Gail draws squirrels that look like beavers.

My least favorite form of precipitation.
I hate hate hate snow. But the show (or parties!) must go on!

One Wedding and a Thanksgiving...

To sum up many events in one big block of words: me and my pops went to North Carolina for Tgiving to eat with Seaniebear, Lochlain, John and Beannie. It was easy peasy travelling and lots of laughing and a few rousing renditions of "On Top of Spaghetti", and a deeeeelicious dinner and yahtzee and HOBBY LOBBY (oh, sweet Hobby Lobby - you have unfrozen my cold stone heart) - For those of you who don't know HOBBY LOBBY is all the goodness of Michaels + all the wackadoodle cool stuff in Home Goods. And I love love loved it.
Seaniebear sort of sad...really just trying to get his way (!)
Self portraits!
World's Biggest Four Year Old! And what a handsome boy he is. My Loch. My friend.
Helping make "Mom's cookies" which are sugar cookies that you have to beat into submission. Lochlain was pretty good. Seaniebear was...three.
Sits with Peepah, wears Peepah's glasses...
Essentially how my pops looks in them, too.
Maybe my favorite picture of all time and space.
Family play time.
Another awesome pic!
some Meagher Men
A beautiful picture...that I'm sure Johnny will mosaic to contrast and compare...
And we had a Beanie Birthday party - a few months late.
On Saturday me and Pops and Joe and Gail met Johnny in New Jersey for a Meagher family wedding...Sarah Meagher's wedding! And it was super fun and really nice and a great wedding.
Sarah and John Burns!
Gail and Maddie
John and Mary Fran
Meaghers - and Walshs - dance
I know it's fuzzy, but it Nora! Katie! and Tine!
Well, I'll tell you this: We had a great time! We danced, we sang, we chatted! That makes two awesome family weddings this year: First Bill and Lorna and now Sarah and John! I love it when my family gets married!!!!
