I don't know about you all, but my child has an obsession. With a shirt.
What? you ask. Why would a normal, healthy four-year-old have an obsession with a regular T-shirt?

Beats me.

All I know is that Brennen has asked to wear this shirt everyday since summertime when he received it as a gift from his friend, Gavin. It is his "Killer Dana" shirt, named for the surf shop in Dana Point where it was purchased. If it is clean, he chooses it from his closet over any other shirt. If it is dirty, he relentlessly asks when it will be clean again. I have asked him if it's the colors that he likes, or that Gavin got it for him, for the love of Pete, WHY do you love it so? I mean it's cool and all, but why the obsession?

"I like it."

Uh. Ok.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

On Thanksgiving weekend, we drove up to my
aunt's house in Lake Arrowhead and had a rip-roaring time. We didn't know it was going to snow, so imagine our surprise when we woke up the first morning and saw all of this! Olivia was loving every minute of it, Brennen was more cautious (shocking, I know.)

I was mostly glad to get our family Christmas picture taken and not have to dress all four of us up in coordinating outfits just to stand in front of our Christmas tree in the living room and have terrible flash in our faces. No more for us, I say!
