Today we celebrate Will!
Will... who seems to be always celebrating. 
This boy loves life. And all the people living it with him.
Every meal served to him is the best meal he's ever had. 
Baseball is his favorite sport. 
And soccer. And football.
And every other sport he has ever played. 
His idea of a perfect day: hiking and hamburgers.
So, he did just that with some of his favorite people to celebrate turning NINE.

Saturday along the Billy Goat Trail. Sunny and 65 degrees in December! 
Hiking along the Potomac with Dad and two of his best buds... what could be better?

After a long hike, the guys went out for burgers and milkshakes.
Best "Party" Ever according to Will.
Easiest "Party" Ever according to Mom.
This morning he opened his gifts... a new skateboard!
All three on the new board. Hannah and Peter gave him really sweet gifts!  
Ready to go try it out. Complete with new Vans (just like Uncle Mark!).
 Later this morning we met some friends at Adventure Theatre to see "A Little House Christmas" 
and then a bunch of us went out to lunch. Tonight the Flemings will come to celebrate. 
Will's request this year: Calzones and Oreo Ice Cream Pie. 
Love celebrating this kid!

Introducing Henry

For years the kids have been asking, coming home with stacks of dog books from the library, and even writing persuasive papers about why our family should have a dog. We have watched every Dogs 101 video multiple times. They wore us down. Finally, we agreed, it was time to get a dog.

Meet Henry. OUR (gulp) King Charles Cavalier Spaniel puppy.

He's adorable... and rarely still... very hard to photograph....
