We spent some holiday time today at the Boston Museum of Science! As residents we can get free passes from our library. We were saving up a museum for a cold holiday, so today was perfect. So much to see and so little time; we are definitely coming back!

I was thinking about all the things I want to get done before the newbie comes, seeing as most of my friends with two children say not to have any big expectations or plans of getting anything done for the first couple months. Since I'm not making a blessing dress out of my wedding dress, and the blessing tuxedo is already made, I wanted to make this little one some wingtip saddle shoes like Daddy's shoes on our wedding day!
I felt so smart cutting up a pair of $1 shoelaces and finding the ivory scraps from the tux. (The inside soles might be a polka-dot print :)
They're so tiny! I feel like with every pair of baby shoes I make, its a rush to get the pictures taken before the boy busts out of the shoes. Another reason I need a regular-sized boy.

...is so close to nursury-age! It looks like we'll get to drop Link-Link off in nursury and be child-free for a couple hours of church for a maybe two weeks, at best, before we add another little guy to the picture! Lincoln is a hand-full, but so much fun!
Crawling and pushing chairs are the prefered mode of transportation around here. I think he could totally walk if he wanted to, but its just a confidence issue.

Our dear bird Edna Mode had a rough Thanksgiving. Did I mention she had this dangerous habit of squeezing her head through her cage bars? Well, I guess she was a little too lonely for the two days she was left with our friends, squeezed out of her cage, probably couldn't get back in, and...Edna is no longer with us. Rest in peace, you silly bird.
Saturday we field-tripped to the pet store!
After a long look-over, we picked the youngest and prettiest one!
Isn't she lovely? Jason thinks its a boy and should be named Studebaker, Sparky, or Stu. I'm deciding that she will be a girl because I need a female friend in this very-male household. And so I'd like to introduce, in honor of the pageant broadcast this Saturday, there she is, "Miss America"! After working with her just over the weekend, she'll already sit on our fingers and let us stroke her. She has a beautiful tweet and I feel so cool having a pageant girl as a friend!

Ta da! I kept the pink one for myself because I wondered if it looked too much like brains spilling out.

We all got to be there for Evan's Eagle Court of Honor! Good job little brother!
Lincoln started Christmas morning with a bad fever and slept most of the day. We soon noticed he had atleast SIX teeth coming in all at once! With this on top of a cough and runny nose, he was pretty miserable. I took him to the doctor yesterday and turns out he also has possible thrush and TWO ear infections. What a rotten way to spend vacation! Get better soon, Link Link!
My mom took all the girls to go get pedicures and frozen yogurt! (I picked sparkly Barbie pink) Oh what fun to have more girls in the house!
Jason and I were in charge of New Years games, so we pulled out some Newlywed Game questions, and it was surprisingly a very even match between all four couples, regardless of being married 26 years or having dated less than 3 months!
Hiking through Clifton Gorge
Happy New Years!!
