Thursday, January 8

Hello All!!!

Hope everyone is doing well - we are working on getting back on schedule - but it will probably take a few days (or a week or two!!!). Brenna and I slept in late (and I do mean late - 2:30 pm Germany time) and I should have an interesting night...I'll cross my fingers that we were just making up for some of our missing sleep.
Dustin was back at work today - Brenna missed everyone and was bummed that it was just her and I today :-( We sure did have a great time visiting all the friends and family :-)
We have lots of cleaning to do in the next few days (just getting back to normal life) and putting all of Brenna's new stuff away :-) The suitcases are all empty - now to just find locations for all the stuff!!! We are hoping to work with Brenna on potty training this month - hopefully, we will have good updates on that :-) She did go on the potty once today - yeah Brenna!!
Congrats to Eric and Karen on their new baby boy!!! Glad to hear that everyone is doing well (bummed that I just missed the new baby - he will be so big by the time we see him!!!)
Well, here are some of my favorite pictures I took at Christmas! I had to include individual pictures of all my god-daughters - they are such hams!!! Hopefully they will enjoy seeing themselves on the blog - I got several other pictures of each of them that were great!!
Renee - does the phone one of Brenna remind you of anything??? Hope you enjoy my pic of the Mikayla shot - she made it tough with her smile, but I couldn't resist the upside down glasses!!! Brenna and I participated in a lip-sinc while we were home - maybe we should both be performers??!! I think she would always manage to steal the show!!
Anyway - hope everyone enjoys these pictures!!! I'm going to post the projects that my mom and I worked on tomorrow - all of them turned out so cute!!
Take Care!

Your pics are so cute. Funny that you mention the phone picture. I thought it was cute and then you mention the relationship to a very old one! Gosh, I haven't seen that in a while!!! Funny that I haven't seen that phone at Mom and Dad's, I wonder if they got rid of it! Anyway, I hope that you guys get settled in soon and you find place for all of the goodies! Can't wait to see all of your projects you completed while you were home. I think the fleece skirts look comfy and cute. I laugh at every goofy you get of Mikayla since that is pretty much all we get. She has an outrageously gorgeous smile and no matter what, your pics of her are always too cute! Can't wait to get some of these loaded up on my portable photo keychain! Stay warm, planning on 3-6 inches of snow this weekend, so maybe we can build a snowman! Love you!
