Note to Self

I love the way he sucks on the base of my thumb while he's sitting on my lap.

I love the way he gnaws on his fists.

 I love the way he geeks out about seeing himself in the mirror
I love all his little noises.  And the way I can get him to giggle.  And the way he chews on his tongue just like his daddy.

Bottom line.  I just plain LOVE this kid!  So glad he's ours.

The Annual Christmas Tree Hunt!

Logan's first Pack Family Tree Hunt was a success! 

Every year our family goes up to the Idaho wilderness to cut down our Christmas Tree.  This is one of my all time favorite traditions and I never miss it.  So even with a 5 month old...I was determined to go.  Chad had his doubts which made me start to question my sanity.  I mean...5 month olds are far from predictable.  What if he got hungry and I had to feed him on the hill side?  What if he had a massive blow out and he needed to be changed right there in the snow??  What if we weren't paying attention to where we were going and he got nailed in the face with a tree branch while he was in the backpack???  I mean...valid concerns...right?  But I had absolutely no child care, and our friends Cam and Jessie were bringing their 3 month old and their little dog...if they could do it...so could we.  SO...we took our chances and brought little "Santonio" (Chad's latest nickname for Logan).

Chad and I were so worried that he would just bawl the whole time, but our little trooper did great...as long as we kept moving. 

We had the whole Pack family up there including cute little Tai and Kua.  And we had a couple of first timers with the Cornelius' and the Rogers.  It was a good time!  The weather was beautiful.  The temperature was bearable and the kiddos we're absolute troopers! And to top it off the Tree pickings were AWESOME this year!  Everyone found great trees!  Can't ask for much more than that!
