First, sorry for missing the Monday deadline for my Monday Post. Lauren politely reminded me yesterday. Whoops.  We had Justin’s birthday dinner last night and Peyton is teething so I had my hands full.  As if having Christmas isn’t a big enough event to keep us busy, Justin had to be born only three days later.  He is difficult.   

Second, Ryan is home for the Holidays. One of the hobbies he’d acquired while living in the great state of North Dakota is photography. Funny what brutal cold and extreme boredom will do to a guy. He bought himself a fancy camera like the one Ashton Kutcher has and he’s been experimenting with it all week.  I told him he can’t expect to pick up chicks like Ashton Kutcher just because he has the same camera.  I haven’t seen any girls around so I guess he hasn’t had much luck. 
Anyways, Ryan has been taking thousands of photos.  This weeks picture is from his artistic mind.  I have to admit, I’m a little jealous of the camera, but it’s nice to have Ryan home. He is one tough bugger for living in North Dakota. We’re proud of ’em.
