so, i intend to respond to your sweet comments with some posts, but for today, the last of the year, i will be savoring our last moments with matt's sister and her husband (who head home to amsterdam in the morning), unpacking and cleaning up the house, cooking a meal for tonight and taking a nap! a little more low key than multiple party hopping escapades of other years. such is the season of small children, i suppose.
(p.s. i should add that both of these cuties are sick, and that the itty bitty one got her bleary, watery eyes, smoker's cough and nose that runs like a faucet from her big sister. it is cold #1 for her (cold #465 for big sister) and it is a little tragic to see her sweet 7 month old face look up at me like, what happened to the safe, cozy world where i eat every three hours and am snuggled to contentment whenever i so desire? why is my head suddenly exploding in pain? and what, pray tell, is that delicious sweet liquid candy you feed me from a little plastic syringey thing that makes the whole world better?)
here is the sole christmas eve photo we got. ah, the stuff of memories!
five seconds later m smacked her little sister in the face and proceeded to downward spiral as only a 2 1/2 year old can, which included a lot of flailing and havoc-wreaking.
happy new year to you all,
and can't wait to share some of our fun december adventures with you!
