Apparently it's been well over a month since I have made any posts. Time seems to fly this time of year and this year appears to be the fastest yet! I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We were able to spend time with family...Samuel continues to keep his grandparents mesmerized and wrapped around his little finger. OK, maybe they're not so little. He had his 6 month checkup a couple of weeks ago. He weighed in at 19 pounds 9 ounces leaving him just 3 ounces shy of gaining 10 pounds since he was born! That put him in the 75th percentile for his age. He continues to be blessed/cursed with his father's head size, he's in the 95th percentile for that category, and as far as his height, he's off the charts. Over 100 percent at 29 inches long!!! I've gotta feeling we're gonna have fun trying to keep enough food in the house for him when he hits puberty!

In other news, Crystal and I have already received our Christmas present for/from each other. We decided to go ahead and invest in a good camera so that's what we did. It seems like each week Crystal gets more interested and knowledgeable about photography and she's getting pretty darn good at getting good portraits of Samuel. You can go HERE to take a look and even order some if you wish. Now, I need to learn how to take good wildlife, outdoorsy type shots!

I hope the holidays are treating everyone well and you've got all your shopping done. Christmas always seems to me, while being a special time of the year, also a very, very hectic one. I sincerely hope that we're all able to enjoy it! So from us here in Traphill, Merry Christmas! And come see us sometime.....
