Babysitter Update

One of the best things about 2010 was some of the people we met. Not only the Sisters we had the pleasure of meeting through the Ds sisterhood and their beautiful babies, but also our new babysitter. When Jen told us she was adopting Sofia early this year and we realized that we were going to have to find a new babysitter for Joey, we were terrified that we would not be able to find someone that loved, and took as good of care of Joey while we work, as Jen did. Fortunately, our fears were unfounded.
Shannon has been watching Joey since April of 2010 and (although we miss Jen), we are very fortunate to have connected with Shannon and her family. Joey seems very happy there. Check him out with his new buddies, Shannon's son Blake and Gia (one of the little girls Shannon also watches).
We know that Shannon and her family will be a part of our family for years to come. Shannon's son Blake is only a few weeks younger than Joey and Gia is about a year old.
As you can see from the pictures, Joey enjoys spending four days a week at Shannon's, playing with Blake and Gia...
and the bunnies!
And although I would love to be there with him...knowing Joey has always been well cared for and happy (both with Jen and now with Shannon) while we work makes being away from him so many hours a week (somewhat) bearable.
Happy New Year to everyone and I promise to post more Christmas pics and a 2010 year in review real soon!

Merry Christmas 2010

We went down to San Diego for Christmas. It was an all around really nice Christmas. Here are a few of the pictures....I will add more later this week.

Here Joey and I are on Christmas Eve.
With Tony...
Here Joey is Christmas morning with his new kitchen set. Thanks Grandma and Pa was a huge hit and I am excited to get it home. I hope this becomes his new obsession (instead of emptying my kitchen cabinets!).

We hope everyone else had a nice Christmas as well!

Santa Clause

Here is the official picture with Santa Clause. I was shocked he did not scream!
