how to eat pie...

christmas eve leftovers.

our dear neighbors had us over for a christmas eve feast.

with the bebe rapidly approaching bedtime, we left before pie was served.

without knowing which kind we would like, they naturally brought us two of each!

now that is a lot of pie...

christmas morning

filled with lots of new things
we might not quite understand yet...
christmas cereal.
santa always seems to know what the favorties are.
and enough new goodness to just wear a guy out!

gift giving guide

new tradition around here.

christmas morning finds you with:

something you want,
something you need,
something to wear
and something to read.
the mama version:
admittedly our definitions of want and need are a tad blurry...

the husband version:the bebe version:

credit for this little poem needs to go to my sister-in-law sarah...  she did this with her family and i decided it was a keeper....

christmas-izing the place

the stockings all hung from the dresser with care...and topped with our new nativity (love my talented in-laws!), sure to be a favorite with the mama bebe.
i think i found my new favorite locale for keeping the christmas cards. they brought colorful adornment to our door, and i got to peek at them regularly on my way out of the house.

thank you to all who sent one our way, and merry christmas to you too!

and, of course, bringing the bebe in on all the traditions!

by the light of the snow

took this photo at dark- thirty a.m. on one of my rendezvous' with the bebe.

i couldn't believe how much light the snow brought to the dark night.

what i'm up to

this is what i've been up to for the last semester at school:

worked on the prestigious year long senior project known that the FSAE formula hybrid. it's a gas and electric powered vehicle that we will be racing in new hampshire next year.
created a 3D game in C++ called toilet toss, kinda similar to paper toss for the iphone. it was pretty awesome.

and modeled in CAD an RC car. this too was pretty awesome.

i'm working on my sanity...

good thing today is a day of rest!

o christmas tree

is it okay that i love this picture, even in all its blurriness?

i dressed bebe up all warm in his little bear suit, and picked up a sickly husband up from school to go scout out our christmas tree.

the bebe was taking in all the sights/trying to figure out where in the world we were, while bobby and i searched for the perfect tree.

we are more into the charlie brown types.

it smelled like heaven. oh how i love the pine scented air.

garden to table

i trucked through the melting snow out to the garden to pick the last of our carrots before the ground froze.
i love feeding the bebe food when i know where it came from.

bonus, we made impromptu massaman curry with the carrots too..he likes it too.

man that kid has cheeks! kissable ones at that...

funny story. i was talking to a friend at work (aka... the other megan) about baby food.

my comment, "it is so easy to make baby food with the food you have and eat at home."

her response, "yea, but it is so easy for me to just reach out and grab a jar off the shelf when i'm already at the store."
