One Year Ago

 Today is one of my three favorite days in a year.  I love my babies' birthdays, but this one is bittersweet.  The first birthday is always bittersweet.  Especially when it is the last first birthday we will have in this household.

Catching leaves and eating them while I had my back turned.
No big party plans today.  Just a roasted chicken with root vegetables (no leaves) and some type of little cake.  Unfortunately, I have to go to work for a little bit.

Random Order Part II

 More pics from our camping trip.  We camped at Roaring River, known to be a fly fishing hot spot.  I still have more to post, and I promise it won't be like a gazillion days before I do.

Yes, at this point, with children leaning over the rock wall above the water, I was experiencing a wee bit of anxiety.

One of my favorite moments of the trip was sitting by the River with Charlotte and her leaning on my knee.

Life is busy.  Work, school, birthdays, doctor appointments, holidays and I don't even have the kids in any activities - that part makes me feel like a bum.  I have been very focused on experimenting with handmade stuff and trying to make a lot of Christmas gifts.  We will see how that works out...
