A little update

Boy, have we let this slide a bit, or what?

Just got back from my parents house for Thanksgiving. Had a fantastic time. Going out there reminds me of visiting my grandparents when I was little, and Violette loves her cousins to a fanatical degree.

Also just finished transitioning from iOS to Android. Protip: turn off iMessage on the iPhone before swapping sims. Thus far, I've been very happy with the Nexus 4, though the issues we had ordering the phones, plus some other issues with the Google Play store, have kept it from being completely smooth.

Hope everyone has had a fantastic holiday. It's going to be a busy couple of weeks. I'll try to take more pictures of Violette, and get them posted.

Oh, and have I mentioned we're expecting again? Janie made it Facebook official recently, but just in case.

Vi's manifesto

I am Violette. I don't like kisses. I am a good guy and I am not a
bad guy. And I don't like kisses.

Rose, no comments from the peanut gallery. ;)

Double cute!

I know this is my inner nurturer biasing me, but I can't imagine anything cuter.

Stuff Violette says

Scott, looking through his calendar on his phone: "Can you believe we don't have anything scheduled tomorrow?"

Violette: "I scheduled play."
