playing catchup

As I'm sure you all can guess, things get a bit busier for moms and dads once there's two kids to be responsible for...and blogging falls by the wayside. No worries, we'll do a quick montage (it's better when you sing that word) to let you know what I've been up to.

Leading up to Christmas, Avery said one of her favorite activities was the Christmas Brass concert at CCCC. (2009 recap, 2010 recap, 2011 recap). I guess Mom and Dad forgot to take video this year (classic 2nd kid snub) but we had fun with a big family dinner at Gammy and Grandpop's house with Grandma D and Aunt Darcy before all heading over to the concert. We got to see Maddie and her parents too...and Avery tells me they gave out FREE COOKIES at the end of the concert, so you can understand why I'm surprised it wasn't a full house.

On the 20th, Cousins Jamie and Grayson arrived with Uncle Charlie and Aunt Eva! It was Avery's first day off of school for the holiday break so we celebrated by wearing matching outfits! Avery and I were super excited to go play in Gammy and Grandpop's new basement and Avery enjoyed a fun game of Qwirkle before we had to head home for the night. I retired a little earlier. In the corner. Out of the way of flying Qwirkles I guess?

Don't worry about me, I was sleeping very soundly.
On the 23rd, we went over to an open house at the McComb's. Avery is old friends with Miss Ginny but this was my first chance to meet everyone. Mom and Dad's friends Amanda and Andy were there with their cute little daughter Edie Belle (all pictures missing, but we had a really fun time). After the party we took our after party to the hotel lobby. Oh wait, I guess we went to Red Robin instead (Avery's choice, of course). At least I get to show off Christmas dress #2 (which you may remember as Avery's Christmas Dress #1.) The "Who Wore It Best" is a tie, obviously.

Maebe Later.
