New Camera = Lots of Pictures

Lynzie and I decided to buy ourselves a new camera for Christmas (it helped that our old one suddenly stoppped working). Over the past few weeks we have literally taken hundreds (dare I say thousands) of pictures, mostly of little Miss Evelyn. Click here to see some of our favorites.

Evelyn's 1st Christmas


Evelyn enjoyed her first Christmas, even though she seemed much more interested in eating and sleeping than in enjoying her Christmas gifts. I wanted to give her something special for this first Christmas, so I decided to build a bookcase for her room. It took me about 15-20 hours or so to build it, but in the end I think it turned out very nicely. I even bought her a few new books to accompany the other children's books we've been collecting. While I was busy buying Evelyn books, it seems everyone else was intent on buying her new clothes. Even better than the gifts was all of the time we were able to spend with both Lynzie and my families. We had a special dinner or get together almost every night the week of Christmas. It will be a memorable one for us!
