It's fun to have fun friends

I love having friends that like to do fun things. We had a "Pomegranate Promenade" in November where everyone brought their favorite pomegranate dish and we voted on our favorite. I didn't have a pomegranate so I just brought pumpkin bread and sprinkled it with someone else's pomegranate and called it "Pompkin" bread. I didn't win.

Then for December Danielle hosted a fun Christmas Masquerade. And I did win best mask of the night. It was just an old mardi gras mask from my mom's costume closet, and I think I only won because I wore it almost the whole night.
It's nice to look forward to getting out of the house some nights- no kids allowed. Yesterday I thought I might die if I heard one more "NO WAY!" or "MINE!" Sometimes it feels like I'm in a constant battle of wills all day. And the best part about it is that as soon as Ty walks in the door Otis says, "Come on in, welcome home Dad, how was work?" Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde make MANY daily appearances at our house too. Bryce and I just look at each other and laugh at how fast Brooke can change her moods. It's crazy! Unfortunately I have a girl and I think I need to get used to the mood swings for many more years to come.

Otis is a funny boy! It is really nice to have things to look forward to and to get out of the house once in a while! Your family picture is SO cute! You look just fabulous!
