Lately I have been so busy at work, too. We had customers in all week long, so I spent a lot of time preparing for them and trying to catch up on urgent email when I wasn't doing something with them. I'm so glad it's the weekend!
Anyway, I thought I'd post a couple of pictures since we finally got a new camera!!!
Mara loves a good piggy back ride. This was Christmas Day. It's ridiculous to see the disaster that was my house!
Mara enjoying Daddy's back!
Christmas was a good time to get together with family. This is Mara with Josh's brother, Danny, and sister, Rachel.
This was Mara's birthday cake that we had at our friends' house on New Years Eve. She was excited to see more Dora, as she had received a Dora kitchen set for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Brunk.
This was the whole layout. Each setting had its own maracas, too. Too cute!
She especially loved singing Happy Birthday to herself. In fact, on Christmas night, she fell asleep in my arms singing, "Happy Birthday dear Mara."
Amanda and Jamison have a little Beagle named Porthos. For Mara's birthday, they gave her a stuffed beagle-like puppy. When she opened it, she yelled, "Porthos!" and put him on the ground, pushed his behind and said, "Run! Run!" It was cute that she thought he was real! Here is Mara with both fake and real Porthos.
The Kuroiwas either right before or right after midnight. Happy New Year!
This is Mara the other day. She was so tired, she fell asleep standing up against the ottoman.
My sweet little girl.
One last one of Mara snuggling her Porthos.
