Random musings and semi-crappy pictures

I know that I should uber-blog about something or other...but honestly, not a whole lot is going on. I should post about Thanksgiving and the (much-appreciated) visit from the in-laws, but the thought's a little overwhelming and, frankly, I didn't take any pictures. I've been doing a lot of catch-up since I'm feeling slightly better now-a-days, but I'm not getting done nearly as much as I should be (the state of my house and laundry room can attest to that). We're attempting to sprinkle in some holiday festivities here and there, but again, not nearly as much as I'd like. Let this be a lesson to you, young grasshopper, that if you get Christmas prep done early, you can actually enjoy Christmas during Christmas (as I'm sure most of you have already figured out). Oh well, maybe next year. In the meantime, however, here's a few (semi-crappy) cookie-making pictures to hold the mutinous rabble at bay.

The girls caught in the act...



I love this look of concentration on Ezra's face. He takes his frosting very. seriously.

Obviously, it payed off. The kid pays so much attention to detail it kills me! He only got like 5 cookies done, but they all were as meticulous as this one.

The only semi-smiling pictures I got of the girls. For some reason, they just weren't into the picture-taking this time around. But, you get what you get and you don't get upset.


Spencer's ginger-Eve and ginger-Adam.
Spencer insists those blobs on Eve are flowers. I'm a bit suspicious, however.


As an added bonus, I'll throw in a video of my very favorite non-religious Christmas song of all time, Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby. Seriously, I fell for it when I was like 7 or something...back when I really did dream of a light blue convertible :)

Here's it is in all of it's original fabulosity
(feel free to skip the last half, it's just a remix)

Whit, I got your card today (thanks!), and can I just say how freakin' radiant you looked in that photo??? Pregnancy looks great on you (no fair).
Also, this is by far my faaav hair cut on you. Remember the just-moved-from-Utah HUGE hair days? Or the "my-mom-says-my-head-is-too-small-for-flat-hair" days?...
You're so Gorgeous. Amen.

Love the Christmas cookies, and the all the other "semi-crappy" pics ;)
