Well it's a new year and we're off to a slow start in the blog department. It's not for lack of adventure and fun - we've had plenty of that.  We've had pretty much plenty of everything, except for snow. Much to my chagrin.

The boys continue to delight us, and... in other times, push us to the brink of sanity. What has been an absolute, and unexpected joy is to see their relationship developing independent of our own.  They show a mutal admiration and love for each other that is so sweet.

Happy 2012, albeit a month late.  

 Getting ready for Ed's blessing at church.

                       George telling a hilarious story about a time he tricked mom into buying him a car.

Ed frequently looks at us, amidst a George hug, with a look in his eye that says, "I'm enjoying this but I know how quickly things can get out of control, you are in control right?"

George can be a huge ham sometimes, whereas Ed is a literal ham. I have no idea where either of them get this.  Must be from a distant relative somewhere.

Boys playing with Ed's jungle gym, a frequent meet up spot.

We love seeing George and Ed's relationship develop.
