Disney World January 2009

In January we went to Walt Disney World. It was not one of our better trips. I came down with stomach viurs, Joe's hands broke out in a horrible boil-like rash and my parents' house burnt down. Here are some pictures from the good moments we had.

Ridng the bus to the Magic Kingdom.

Riding the carousel in Fantsyland.

Lunch at the Crystal Palace with the friends from the 100 Acre Woods.

Christmas 2008

Okay, many of you may have noticed that I have dropped off blogging since Lauren's birthday in November. The next few posts are going to be "catch up" posts. I'll start with Christmas 2008...

Here we've found the perfect Christmas tree for our home.
