Here is what we've been up to:
Matt's dad, or Pops as Madeline calls him, came up for the blessing. Family gathered and Matt served his famous pulled pork on the smoker.
We made a visit to Utah.
Flying with two kids was a little hectic. The amount of luggage/carseats was just insane. The kids did amazingly well, though. Of course on the way Charlie pooped through everything and I had the joy of attempting to change and redress a screaming baby in that tiny bathroom during turbulence :) We had a great time with Matt's family and ate a ton of great food. Yum!
We woke up yesterday morning to snow! Madeline ran and got her hat and mittens on and then went to wake up her daddy. Obviously we weren't ready. I don't have any decent gear for Madeline yet. I think I'm still in San Diego mode :) We are really enjoying these seasons, though!
Life is good. Even though some days are hard and there is often a lot of crying around here, I feel like I'm getting a better handle on things or at least trying to have a sense of humor about the chaos :)
