...No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

I. Had bronchitis all November. Spent time alternately coughing/sleeping/begging for death. Got over it.

II. Thanksgiving. Kevin & Celeste, Catherine & Matt, Mike & Mandy & Associates. There was much turkey; also, football.

III. Met up for realsies with my internet friend Meg - my psychic twin in many ways, except that she works for Duke.

IV. Turned 31. Got $ for fabric (Matt's parents) and a ruffle foot (Matt). Ruffle foot has been removed from packaging; that's about it.

V. Finished epic custom order of American Girl sewing. V. proud of self.

VI. Betsy's 8th birthday.

VII. Matt's parents arrived for 12 day visit. Used them almost immediately for free babysitting: Matt and I had 10th anniversary. Went to Macaroni Grill for dinner; got free dessert upon showing waitress pics of our wedding lunch at (different) Macaroni Grill.

VIII. Betsy's 8th birthday party. Collective noun for a group of 8 year old girl: a squee.

IX. Molly and Dad came out for Betsy's baptism. Saw 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' with Molls. Epic.

X. Betsy's baptism. Cutest girl ever. Could not be prouder.

XI. Many cookies prepared; consumed.

XII. Snow.

XIII. Christmas Eve 'All the snacks in the world' at Mike & Mandy's house. There was goat cheese, and then there wasn't because I ate it all.

XIV. Christmas Day. Many photos taken. Kids love toys.

XV. Saw 'Wicked' with Matt on Christmas Night. Wore foxy new clothes from husband. 'Popular' stuck in head for approx. 72 hrs.

XVI. In-laws back to Utah.

XVII. Watched HBO's 'The Pacific.' First half = bleh; second half = almost as good as BoB.

XVIII. New Year's Eve: cheese fondue, Jurassic Park (Porter's new obsession). Not resolutions, but goals:
  • Sew one thing for ME a month;
  • Get Amy potty trained;
  • Find a job.
XIV. Happy 2011!

Wow! Wicked on Christmas Night- that sounds amazing! And you had bronchitis- boo. And you love goat cheese, which is of course- one of many reasons why we are friends. And you want to get a job this year? What the what? I totally support that, of course, but methinks it's been too long since we talked on the phone because that one caught me by surprise. I'll give you a call.
