Many tiny updates

This is a smattering of little updates. Sorry--no belly picture yet, but I promise I'll post one soon. But there's ultrasound shot of the little BOY. We're so excited. He's a real mover pedal-kickin and wiggling around.

In a way, we are totally taken over by our own stuff, but this photo is already a few weeks old and it has cleared out a lot. But, I wanted to show our darling Christmas tree that we chopped down ourselves with Aly and Reid.

This is the lovely countertop that Tyler and Aaron made. Khe kitchen is such a pleasure to work in now. You can see more about these counters at novustone's website.

This year for family, we made scotchmallows with salty tops from a Martha Stewart recipe. They tasted great, though we overdid the caramel a bit so it was very chewy.
