So I have been debating whether or not to even update the blog since it has been so long since the last post. Does anyone even read it anymore? I’m pretty sure anyone who did has given up on seeing anything besides Collin and Violet posing with our Christmas tree. But i’ve decided to give it another go and see if I will get back into the groove of blogging. To be honest, besides not having much time to devote to it, i’ve also lost interest in the blogging world as a whole. Not sure why. Maybe Instagram and Facebook are to blame. I still read a few blogs here and there but i’m definitely not as much of loyal follower as I have been.
I have no idea where to begin. How do I condense our lives for the past 3 months into one post? I think the easiest(and fastest) way is to explain it in pictures. So without further adieu here is what’s been going on in our little world according to our iPhones:
Family photo-Fall 2012
Violet’s first Ballet Recital
Our First Holiday Season with our “Elves on the Shelf”. Violet named them “Alpha and Jonah”.
In the infamous line waiting to see Santa at Macy’s Herald Square.
The group shot(minus Collin, we missed him, he was on his way from work but didn’t make it in time). I was amazed that neither of my kids were crying! This was a first for us.
Chris and Cait. We’re so happy that these two came to spend Christmas with us.
Classic Rockefeller Tree pictures.
Gingerbread House making/decorating.
Someone took matters into his own hands and decided that it we wouldn’t give him any runts he would pick them off the house himself. He continues to get himself into trouble on a daily basis. Some things never change.
First Sunday in Sunbeams. She’s growing up way too fast!
Our new couch arrived in January. Merry Christmas to me!
15 month appointment(he was technically 16 months, minor details right?). 95th percentile for weight and height. What can I say? The boy has a healthy appetite. Oh, and i’m pretty sure Violet’s thighs are thinner then his.
Riding the A with a couple of her best gal pals. Love these little girls. Sorry it’s blurry. No one wanted to hold still
Bedtime stories. Simon never. sits. still. This is rare folks, very rare!
Collin continues to be one of the world’s greatest dad’s. He and Simon enjoyed playing in the snow after our legit snowstorm a couple weeks ago.
However, this one did not. She didn’t want to wear boots and convinced herself that she was in a bad mood. Whoever said the terrible twos were bad might now have had a 3 year old. The emotions run high in this one and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t getting nervous for her teenage years.
Valentine’s Day was a success over here this year. We decorated sugar cookies and Violet loved exchanging her Valentine’s with all her friends. Collin spoiled me as usual with flowers and Ghirardelli chocolates in a heart shaped box. Those didn’t last long around here!
So that’s a brief summary of the goings on around here. We are counting down the weeks until spring. This is the worst time of year. Thankfully Easter is early this year, hopefully it will bring some warmer weather our way. We are so looking forward to long days spent with friends, outside, exploring the city and enjoying our favorite playgrounds again. Spring and Summer in the city is the best! Until next time, stay warm friends.
