Blu & Jingle

Porter's favorite Christmas present would have to be Jingle, or "Ningle" as he calls it. Jingle is an interactive story buddy that barks when certain lines in his story are read.

Blu & Jingle

Porter just loves Jingle, and Blu is pretty fond of him as well!

Stephen Clan Christmas

For Christmas break, Brian and I were focused on getting some work done on the house. Since Brian had a few days off, he worked on patching and painting our dining room and bathroom walls.


The results were wonderful, and we are very pleased!

Back to Blogging

I've been on a blogging hiatus for the last couple of weeks. The reason? While on vacation, I took well over a thousand images! Today is the first time I even considered getting the camera out of the case!


Life's been good to us though over the last few weeks. Although not too much new to report, Brian has been home a lot more since he is using up his remaining vacation days before the new year. Porter, Blu, and I have been enjoying our extra quality time with Daddy!


Porter's vocabulary is ever-increasing, and he cracks us up with all the funny things that he says. We love that he talks with is hands (just like his mommy). The "stories" he tells are a riot!


Porter just adores Blu. He gives her considerably more kisses and hugs than he gives his mom and dad combined! They are a good pair.


Here's our little monkey. It's hard to believe that he's 21 months now. Brian and I know we're very blessed to have him as our son.
