26/365 Chúc mừng năm mới!

Happy Tet everyone!

Annie 26/365

Lucy 26/365

Today I am thankful for our warm, cozy house. I love it when we can use our fireplace. It is not that often, so I use it on any cold day we get. We are in an ice storm watch and I just can't imagine not having a warm home to go to. I hope that everyone out there is able to find a warm place to sleep.

I am absolutely exhausted today, so this is all I have. Some days the sleepless nights just hit me so hard and this is one of those days. Justin got up with Annie each time last night, but I wake up every time and then I couldn't go back to sleep after 4:30 am. That is a really early time to start your day!!

This one is for you Seashy.



This is how she really feels about these pictures.

Everyone looks happy and peaceful! Bianca looks very posed--like the model that she is, and Bruiser looks like possibly he partied a little too much at the Tet party and is now feeling the effects! Lucy Goose looks happy as a lark, and our little Annie looks so calm and peaceful--love it. Watching for ice here--need to watch a little tennis, then off to bed for me. You sounded pooped--so you follow suit! Get some rest and I'll talk to you tomorrow. Kiss the girls for me. Thanks for getting up so much, Justin! LeeLee

Seashy--I hope that you noticed that I didn't embarrass Bianca by calling her a "plus size" model!! Any ice up there??? Love, Mom

Annie--you and your Mom both left a pair of socks here. Hurry and come get them! LeeLee

Kelly--get off the computer and get to sleep!

Kelly, I truly wish there was some magic spell I could cast that would allow Annie to sleep through the nights. Trust me, I mean this from the bottom of my heart. I know how exhausting it can be to have a little one who seems to refuse to sleep, and I pray that it gets better for all of you very soon. Love the photos of your beautiful girls!

oh friend, how I needed this today. To see breathtaking pictures of your little ones in all their darlingness. Here's to a great night's rest for you and annie. Keep up the good work - you're my inspiration, dude.

I just laughed out loud at your mom's comment (especially the part that orders you off the computer). So cute. I hope your monster has mercy tonight. Mine must've taken pitty on me yesterday - 2 wake-ups last night and a 3rd at 6am, but she went back to sleep and is still sleeping at 7:40am!! Unfortunately, Jack has been up since 5:30am as usual, and Shane woke-up for some milk at 5:45am. At least Travis got up with Jack.
I'm so jealous of your fireplace. Nothing cozier than that!

ooh maybe you'll get ice for good pics? That's something we just aren't going to get here. In fact I think the sun just peaked out and it's supposed to hit 70! Crazy.

The fireplace looks so cozy!!

Happy Tet!

You have dogs? They're so cute!! You rarely post pictures of them but I guess when you have kids you stop photographing your pets. Maybe I should have some kids!! :0)

Get your socks from your mother, already! :)

I love love LOVE IT!!! the pictures were great, wish I had a fireplace! I see that you put up the protective chain curtain, just in case if Bruiser makes one unbalanced misstep, huh?

Normally I would be in class today, but due to ice, THE UNIVERSITY IS CLOSED!!

miss you all so much.

Last winter we didn't use our fireplace once. I was too scared with L being such a new walker and all. This year??? All. The. Time. I missed it so much! Sorry for the lack of sleep. If it helps, I'm pretty tired too : ). Mike and I talk about how run down we look in pictures ever since Linhsey came into our lives. Hang in there !
