What we have been up to lately:

Loving "Buh Buh"

Watching for Daddy to come home

Getting stuck in the strangest places, while exploring EVERYTHING!!

Loving reading more and more

Pooping through too many outfits while running errands, and having to resort to wearing mommy's sweatshirt!

Helping mommy sell her Handbags, at the showcase

Pulling every single stuffed animal out of the basket, playing with them for a few moments, and then moving on to the bookshelf

Loving Mac & Cheese- with Butternut Squash hidden in the sauce!

Pulling every magnet off the fridge

Getting taller and taller!!! So much so that Mommy has to start moving things uuuuup and out of my reach!

Hiking with Daddy, Kevin and Uncle C.J.

Making our own Sushi!

A month!

Wow has a whole month really gone by since Halloween? It seems like yesterday, and 5 years ago, at the same time! For those of you who talk to us on a regular basis, you have probably heard us say "we are so busy!" about a thousand times in the past year. And for some reason, this past month has been, NO JOKE, the busiest and craziest month so far.
THere's just something about having a one-year-old, working 20+hours/week, being in grad school, working 20 hours/week, having three birthdays to celebrate and a holiday with the families..... whew! It has all been awesome, but there has just been NO time for posting!

What I've been up to lately:
-Raising up and training a new leadership team for IV at VT, while transitioning the old team out of their positions
-working on a talk that I am giving this friday!
-sewing handbags and purses for a show on campus to make some extra moolah
-chasing Abby around the house... she crawls so stikin fast now!
-raising support
-helping a new team of students plan campus-wide justice events
-cheering Andy on as he finishes out a hard semester

What I would like to be doing:
-sewing some bags for myself! And some Christmas presents too, I guess :)
-playing with Abby all day!
-Christmas cookies!
-Christmas crafts!
-Christmas decorations!
-watching movies with Andy!
-Soaking in a bath for 5 hours with a good book, soothing music, and a BIG glass of wine!

Ahhhhh..... I can not wait for this semester to be over!!

**disclaimer... if any of my students are reading this- I love you all, very very much. You keep me cool. And fashionable. Or at least, from becoming frumpy (so far).**
