Christmas Day

Matt and I had a nice, quiet Christmas Day at home this year. I was certainly not about to fly anywhere at 35 weeks pregnant, so we enjoyed the day together with our little tree and the animals. It was a beautiful sunny day, so we took Sunapee out to Fort Funston for his favorite activity.

The sunny day also highlighted the streaks on the living room windows, so Matt went to work, with an audience.

Unexpected Family Time

Matt and I did get one last trip in before Baby W arrives. We joined my mom's family in Beloit, WI, to remember Bob Taber. Grandpa passed away in December just a few weeks shy of his 90th birthday. The extended family gathered in the cold midwest to share memories of Grandma and Grandpa. Making the best of the occasion, a group of 25+ including Tabers, Lawsons, Whitings, and a great number of the Perkins clan (friends of the Tabers since they were in high school) gathered for dinner - and nearly took over the restaurant for 4 or 5 hours.

Lauren's presence certainly helped lighten the mood. Everyone enjoyed meeting the newest addition to the family.
