Bye Bye Grandma

We are on our way back home. Left this morning at 7am. It's a little foggy; let's hope the roads stay clear. I'm glad we aren't trying to fly out.

ChristmasTime is Here!

I didn't get the chance to share our First Family Christmas with you. Before leaving on our grand trip to Iowa to see my family, Charlie, Max, Asher and I celebrated our first Family Christmas together. Friday night we watched It's a Wondeful Life while I made Christmas Cookies. This year I only made Sugar and Gingerbread, having a 3 month old slows things down a bit. Usually I make Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip, but it got me in the holiday spirit!

We woke up and had our very own Cinnamon Rolls AKA hockey Pucks and coffee, then opened Stockings. Then it turned into nap time for Max so we all went for a lovely walk, it was a crisp day. Then back home for a bottle and presents. Charlie and Max were Santa's Helpers, it was too much fun!

Safe and Sound in South Bend

We have stopped for the night and everyone is glad to be out of the car. 400 mikes to go tomorrow. We hope the weather holds out.

Heading Home

7am Sunday Morning. Heading home... To Ma and Pa Flowers' house for some good old fashioned ChristmasTime. Monster Max is ready in his travel suit and is now passed out in his car seat. Two days in the car, the most states traveled, wish us luck! See you in Iowa.

I love my mornings!

It's been too cold out for our morning walk, so the boys and I are spending some time developing a new rhythm. I think Max and Asher are starting to figure things out.

Nom... Nom... Nom...

I was in the kitchen and heard this sound: Nom... Nom... Nom...

Max was chewing on Dino.

On the Road Again

We were invited to Saratoga Springs this weekend to see a show at Skidmore College, Charlie's alma mater. We started out yesterday morning, arrived and had a quick but tasty lunch at the Putnum Street Market followed by a walk in the North Woods and campus. After a pitstop at the hotel we headed downtown for some reminiscing with old friends.

The show was wonderful, a few of the students we know were kind enough to watch Max so Charlie and I could have a semi-date night. The night was fun, now we are headed back home... I can't wait.
