Beckett's 3 year & Wyatt's 20 months pictures

Full disclosure: I would rather go to the dentist and have several cavities filled than attempt to have the boys' pictures professionally taken all on my own again. This session will go down in memory lane as the stage where Beckett refuses to look at, much less, smile at the camera. *sigh..... Someday I'll look back at this and laugh, right???





a wonderful visit


We were fortunate to have Heidi F. and Ginie J. come for tea this afternoon. Have known both of these sweet ladies for some time, so it was good to spend time with them!

Santa Fe

Mom, Dad, Adam, the boys and I left on Thanksgiving morning to fly down to New Mexico to spend time with Leon. We stayed in Santa Fe, and Leon drove up from the academy to spend two weekends with us. It was so great to see him, and to be able to spend time with him. It was so hard to say goodbye again, but the next time we see him, he will be done, and back home for a few days before we leave for SoCal. Counting down the days until mid-January!!!

The boys' second airplane trip





Captain Beckett even helped fly the plane!!! ;)

And, finally, other than seeing Leon, the highlight of our trip: a day trip to Los Alamos and a hike in Bandelier National Park:
