We’re still here

Sorry for the long hiatus.  We journeyed to Utah for Thanksgiving.  Dell presented a poster at the biggest radiology conference in Chicago (great job dear!) and got to spend time with his parents who were also there for the conference and our good friends Sarah and Amiel who live in Chicago.  Needless to say I was very jealous that Dell got to see all those wonderful people and I didn’t.  But Dell’s parents are coming in January and he’s going to send me to Chicago in the spring to see Sarah so it’s good.

Dell has pretty much been on call since he came back from Chicago so we’ve been in survival mode—do the bare necessities and let things like blogging fall merrily by the wayside, but Dell is actually not on call today and will not be tomorrow either so partying and blogging are back on.  So here’s what we’ve been up to.

I had a sewing day with a good friend Lucy who taught me how to make cute skirts for little girls.  Lizzy models hers here.  Oh and yes she stands now—even unassisted.

Henry started Karate—here he is getting his white belt.  He actually was so excited and overwhelmed he started to cry and couldn’t start.  Poor tired tender kid.  In the car I asked him why he was crying.  He said “I don’t know” in such a sincere, confused voice.  I asked him if he would cry next karate he class to which he wailed “I hope not!”  He’s been dealing with emotions like this a lot lately.  I think Christmas is a little overwhelming when you’re 4.
