Catching up

As you can see by the lack of blog posts, I can't seem to find the time to keep up here. Part of the reason is because we canceled our cable, and we use a new program for watching TV and movies that requires the computer. So when I might have blogged in the evenings in the past, the computer is now busy entertaining us. The other part is that I keep wishing I'd come up with a profound and lovely thing to write about rather than the normal post with 100s of photos. Alas, I will try to post photos today because I want to keep these cherished memories alive and I want our family and friends to see what we've been up to, too. So, let's see if all of our January and February happenings will fit in just one post...
