We took an impromptu trip South to see Aaron's family. There were guns, a pinata, and tractors involved so the boys were in heaven.
Ashton thinking very seriously about life. I'm sure he's mentally hashing out the whole Calvinism vs. Arminianism debate or piecing apart the laws of thermodynamics.
Oh wait. No, he isn't.

Isn't it weirdo to see genes pop out and break free in all the strangest places? When you're an adoptive family you try really hard not to make DNA more important than it actually is, but it's still cool, ya know - to see my legs on my niece, Anson's handwriting look exactly like Aaron's, and all our little quirks popping up in the strangest ways in our offspring and extended family.
I was jerky-Mcjerk-face during this trip and needed to apologize to our whole family. Thankfully they are big on grace and compassion. I love these people, I'm glad they are mine, and I'm extra glad they let me be theirs.
We got a jump-start on our New Year's resolutions and started a few weeks ago. These resolutions involve a lot of plant-based foods, family workouts, and loads of whining.
If our kids try to move in with you, hand them a piece of butter toast or a powdered doughnut and then send them right back home, okay?
