These are in absolutely no order...
My first (and only, unless you count this goof I am legally bound to) roommate was T.J. We met through dance and she is arguably the nicest/sweetest person on planet Earth. She moved back to Canada shortly after Reagan was born and we haven't been able to see each other since. In November, she let us know that the ballet company she is now touring with had a Nutcracker performance in Joliet. My mom and I immediately made plans to go up. I can't begin to describe how wonderful it was to see her and she is even more beautiful than I remembered. Love love love her.
Shepherd "Personal Space" Williams.
Look at that toe action!
If you haven't noticed by now, Shepherd has this thing with glasses and hats.
Some one in our house is deep into Mighty Duck fandom so we took him ice skating for our "the original three" date night. He chose a packet of mints for his concession stand treat and popped them in one after another like they were m&ms. Then at dinner, "this is the best steak I've ever had, you have to get the recipe from them!" .... it was a Chili's.
He turned half a year old last week! Brace yourself for a mom-cliche---- how is that even possible?!?
The week of St. Patty's day was spirit week at his school, this day was "suit & tie day."

For Sofie's birthday we went out for breakfast and then to Grandpa Dave's farm where she was totally surprised by her gift (a 4-wheeler! No way would she have ever guessed she was getting that but seriously how neat for a 15 year old.) We took Reagan's motorcycle out too and the two of them ran all around the farm for hours. Between the tractors, cows, and dogs; Shep was absolutely in his element.
