Happy Holidays

I set up our Christmas tree today. With four cats, it can't be anything too elaborate or delicate. Elliot's mom gave us this fake tree last year, and it's perfect for our house. As you can see, Yoink is already enamored with it. He keeps waiting for me to leave the room, but I'm increasingly worried about what will happen when I do. Let's see if he can stay on Santa's "nice" list this year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What am I thankful for this year? That I'm almost done with law school! I have just a little more than one semester left to go.

By this time next year, hopefully I'll have a job and a REAL Thanksgiving vacation. Not a "break" from school that is spent making outlines and PowerPoint presentations and reading case law. Next year, I'll be able to eat my Tofurky in peace.

Of course, I'm thankful that I've had the opportunity to go to law school in the first place. Don't think I'm ungrateful. I'm just really glad that my tour of duty is almost over. And with that said, I must get back to outlining my presentation on the intersection of Native American treaty rights and federal wildlife laws. *sigh*

Happy National Adoption Month!

November is National Adoption Month!

National Adoption Month celebrates family and brings about awareness that there are hundreds of thousands of children in foster homes waiting to be adopted.

Both my family and Elliot's family have been expanded and enriched through adoption. If you would like to learn more about National Adoption Month, click here or here.

My Birthday!

I celebrated (yet another) birthday on Friday, and I was fortunate enough to get to share it with my family. I'd like to thank them for making the road trip to my casa and for tolerating my cats for the weekend. Here are a few pictures:

Laura and (her boyfriend) Spencer at the duck pond on Saturday.

My parents, eagerly awaiting entry to the county fair Saturday night.

Elliot and Mark, apparently pretending to be comedy and tragedy theatre masks.

Sara and me at the fair. It was COLD!

At brunch Sunday morning. L-R: Spencer, Laura, Sara, Dad, Mom, me, Elliot.

What with all of our home repairs and the other fun and exciting things going on in our lives, we completely forgot to get camera #24 developed. Oops!

Here are the pictures:

Update! Our new bedroom looks great all put together!

Bed and bookshelf

Closet Curtain and a chair and bed again.

Yo! He's the fishy, I'm the human!

We have such an adult looking room now(except for the stuffed animals)!
-This is a first for us-

Mary and Kelli

I love this picture of Kelli and me. It was taken at Kelli's wedding reception last year by her cousin, Reagan, who photographed my wedding, too.

I miss Kelli. We live too far apart, in my opinion. :(
