Brian sang rock-a-bye-baby to Amber in the voice of the Swedish Chef as he swung her around, and she giggled uproariously.

Lydia, while you were sleeping we tattooed a wolf on your butt. And if you don't believe me, you can go show your butt to your mother and ask her.

Brian

I never listen to the haters. And it's a good thing, because they're never right.

Brian brought Penny to sit on our bed, and she just started laughing with delight and shaking from side to side in her happiness at seeing us.

Brian playing with the girls on the mattress--letting them walk up his legs, body slamming, crawling under each other.

№ 119 Movies 2019

Melissa and Brian share their favorite and least favorite movies they first viewed in 2019.

It was 8:30 at night, and Brian and I hadn't eaten. I had wanted to make burgers, but it just kept getting later and later as we tried to get the kids into bed at a decent hour. Finally they were down, but since it was so late I considered just scrounging. Brian, self-sacrificing that he is, said that would be fine with him. I felt dissatisfied with how the night was turning out, and after a minute of internal debate declared I was going to make the burgers anyway. He looked so pleased, I knew I’d made the right decision.

Playing with Lydia and Amber on Saturday morning, carrying them in our arms and treating them like babies. They loved it, and were so sweet, cute, and giggly.
