Ginger Dog

My Parent's dog Ginger LOVES when Ryan comes to visit. Pretty much wherever Ryan is, Ginger is sitting on him.

5-week old Isla was pretty much the life of the party this weekend. Ryan looked at her like this a lot - and quickly determined that we will need a little swing for our baby too.

Joel and Sarah are doing great living up in Boyne and doing all the lawyer-type things that lawyers do. We're all so proud of them.
Luke and Lindsey's cat is hilarious. This is sorta like the manger scene, with all the animals gathered around the new baby.

Luke and Lindsey are such great little parents. Isla is a lucky little girl to have such an awesome mom and dad. Thanks for an awesome weekend guys! We love you!

The Boards

Ryan takes step 3 of the board exams today and tomorrow - so if you think if it, pray that he'll remember everything he needs to remember! Pretty much this exam is a total recall of everything he's learned for the last 5.5 years since his first day of med school.

Golden Gifts

"Thank you for being a friend" necklace is pretty much the best Christmas gift idea I've ever seen in my entire life! If you don't know what to get me...this is it.

Cross Country Skiing

We spent the weekend in Cadillac with some of our best friends Joel & Sarah and Luke & Lindsey and thier new 5 week-old baby Isla. I'll post more pictures of Isla later. Here are a few from the trail.

Isla came along for the skiing adventure, tucked safely away inside Lindsey's coat. So cute!

Shredded Wheat

this morning I was eating a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats when all of a sudden, out of nowhere this huge sneeze came right before I had time to swallow...

...and that's the story of how I got shredded wheat on my face.
