Family Pics

This year we had our good friend Anne Toller take our family pictures.  I think she did a wonderful job! Here you go!

Great stuff, huh?

Why I Will Not Be Vaccinating Agasinst the Flu... Ever.

I'm not going to pontificate against the flu vaccine here. For over 5 years, I have steadfastly refused this vaccine without any doubts simply based on my motherly intuition.  Now I have found a well-researched article explaining how my decision is now backed by science. Please read it and be informed about your own decision, whether you decide to vaccinate or not.

And please, let's all stop the judgment conga line about each other's decision.

You know what's best for your family.

I know what's best for mine.

Tristan's Birthday!

This last Thursday, Tristan turned 6!  We just had the basic party, you know, favorite dinner (pizza and mac & cheese), cake (white with yellow frosting and red sprinkles), and presents, but fun was had by all.

Tristan received a VERY LARGE tote full of legos from Granmama and Grandpa Johansen.  Then he received from us a beanbag chair, a flashlight, and 151 marbles, including some big shooters.  He was well satisfied.
