Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

Hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday! Grandma Nancy got a digital camera for an early Christmas present and has been clicking photos of Finn like mad. Here are some highlights of Finn's first Christmas in Grand Rapids.

Here is Finn, playing "Santa" with Grandpa Sam.

Here is Finn and me skating on Lake Pokegema.

Sorry for the Hiatus

Sorry that's it's been awhile since the last post. We've been assembling the Christmas cards that you were all so helpful with choosing (just kidding - it was a 4 way tie). Be ready for a surprise in your mailbox early next week.

Finn started some finger foods this week (basically the same foods, just not as mashed). Here are some pictures capturing Finn's attempts at getting food from the plate to his mouth without help. The first attempt was with cut-up bananas, but they proved too slippery for his tiny fists. We then tried puffed rice cereal, which was equally frustrating, but he did end up getting more of those in his mouth (with an attempt to success ratio of about 20:1).

The results!

Counting the write-in's, we have a four-way tie between Photos 1-4.

We'll let you know what the election officials choose to do.
