After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This sketch is of me selling a snow shovel.

Cute little Brooklyn turned 1 on January 26th. Wes showed her a trick or two while we were there. Sorry Kevin and Naomi! :)
This a pic from after we got home. Wes loves cookies. (No surprise there!) It's been a good tool to help him eat more of his dinner. Maybe not the best option, but seriously, whatever it takes to get this kid to eat! He's even eating chicken which is a Mother's Day miracle.
The following two pictures are from Christmas with the Swensen grandkids in their PJs. Wes wasn't too happy about it in the first picture. The second is the traditional "cousins in a line" picture.

Exactly one year ago today, Brian and I were in San Diego visiting my sister and her family. We woke up early in the morning to Wes, who was 10-months-old at the time. Shortly thereafter, while everyone else was sleeping, we found out I was pregant with baby #2.
Honestly, at the time it was quite scary! We had no idea where this baby would even be born. However, if I knew then what I know now, I would not have been nearly as scared. I am so grateful Sydney came to live with our family. I know I've said it before, but she is so sweet and fun. We enjoy her so much!
