Christmas 2009

How long has my little blog been asleep? A month you say, I can't believe it. It's as if we've been hibernating in this cold, cold winter wonderland I like to call New York. I always promise I won't let my blog go silent like this but then I always let it happen again so from now on I'm just going to have to live by the motto "I'll do my best" and take it from there. For those of you who heard that I was going to live by the motto "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels", forget-about-it that only lasted a day and do you know why? Because it's a big fat LIE, that's right I said it Kate Moss, it's a lie. Food really DOES taste better than skinny feels that's why you have so many cute, chubby people in this world (myself included). Oh well, what are you going to do another piece of pie you say, alright "I'll do my best" to finish every last bite.

As for updates and pictures here you go: My parents came to visit for a couple of weeks and we attempted to see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree during a Northwestern snow storm which made everyone very miserable and unhappy. We decided to never attempt that again. But we did introduce my parents to the wonderful Shake Shack Sean's true love hamburger joint. That night it snowed 8 inches and church was canceled due to weather conditions (we've never had church canceled before). We took the boys out to play in the snow but Memphis did not like the snow too much because his mittens kept getting wet so he came back inside after a half an hour but Merrick on the other hand loved it. Sean took him to a golf course around the corner for some sledding action. The golf course has some really great hills but I was inside with Memphis so I missed out on the sledding and taking pictures of them. We also got a super cool new van (old but new to us 2006). It's beautiful and functional and I am happy to have it lug my family around town. There's a picture of Sean digging our car out of the snow. As for other news Sean has been called to serve as Second Counselor in the Staten Island Bishopric (did not see that one coming) and I'm pregnant (hahaha no I'm just kidding) we're still just barely getting use to the munchkins we have. We hope you had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year. What are some of your favorite moments of 2009 and what are your hopes for 2010?
