Darin (and his family) came for Thanksgiving. We had a ball!

Yup, she got the Tingey chin(s).

Kelsey and I took Shae and Kate to Krispy Kreme for a play date.

Kate loves to build chairs with her blocks.

Farewell Gymbo

November was a melancholy month. Gymbo the clown packed up and headed out of town. Yes, Gymboree closed down. We miss all our buddies from Gymboree, especially Miss Danielle. Kate and I had a lot of fun here and we both made some great friends.

4 Years later, and this marriage still gets 2 enthusiastic thumbs up!

Mike and I celebrated our 4th anniversary on December 27th! Because this was "The Big 4", we wanted to do something really memorable. So we had a baby. (see below posts)
Looking back on our time together, I realize that manipulating Mike into marrying me was the smartest thing I ever did. (please stop reading here if you have a low tolerance for moosh) Being married to Mike is even better than I could ever have imagined, and as we have gotten to know each other more and more, any surprises I find are pleasant ones. I hope I can be as a good a man as he is someday, (except be a woman).
