Dear Santa,

I know you want to remain anonymous, but thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Graham is currently using one of the gift cards as a phone. Liam is chewing on another. They say thanks, too.

We are overwhelmed with gratitude.

Thank you.

Love, the Aufdermauers


Liam is weaned off formula and the bottle.
Graham and Liam are off pacifiers (except car and sleeping).
The kitchen is reorganized.
My clothes have been sorted and purged.
I made an impromptu trip to the city yesterday with the boys.
The house is still a mess.
I have yet to actually make dinner this week.

Okay, okay. Being home on winter break hasn't turned me into Supermom, but at least I get to put all the baby bottle stuff in storage! Oh man. I'm excited about that.

Time off is AWESOME!

did you know?

Did you know that you can search the content of a blog using the little search field in the upper left corner?

I always thought that was a general internet search. It's not. It's specific to the blog you're viewing.

You know when you saw something on a blog and you can't find it and you spend 20 minutes going through their blog history trying to guess which post it was in? Oh wait. Was I the only person doing that? I am holding you all personally responsible for not telling me this sooner.

Go ahead and try it. Search for something funny like "butt" or "snots" or "punch-face."

My life just got 10% better.
