We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

NaBloPoMo & Jill's wedding

I think this would have been my sixth year posting everyday in November, 
for National Blog Posting Month.
But, I forgot and my blog has kind of gone by the wayside. 

Even though it's already the 5th. 
Yes, I've missed 4 whole days. 
I'm still going to try it.
Probably won't get everyday...but, I'm making a strong effort to document our family, my thoughts and feelings, pictures, and things that I am thankful for.

*********

I am so grateful for the opportunity we had to go to Utah in September. 
Nathan's sister Jill was married to her sweatheart Aaron Calderwood. 

Here are some pictures of our little family, Jill just sent me.

Marley took these pictures....

 Lorenzo has the most fickle skin of my three children thus far. 
He came out with very flaky/peely skin. 
 He was also more pimply than I remember the girls being. 
And he has had cradles cap...which my girls never got.
 For a couple of weeks his pussy pimples ooozed yellowness. 
It was icky!
 The backs of his ears ooozed yellow too.
And now the insides seem to produce an over abundance of wax.
 He already seems more stinky than the girls.
 Now that I've made him sound like the grossest, dirtiest, stinkiest baby boy you could ever imagine....
he's not all that bad.
In fact, he is so precious.
 And handsome.
 And charming.
 And coy.
 And curious.
 And he is absolutely in love with his mommy.
As it should be.
