Christmas 2013

We had a wonderful and busy holiday season.  I loved having Jon and our parents staying in my little Philly apartment.

Kenny loved it too. 

Kenny was spoiled to the MAX.  He got several Christmas presents and lots of love and attention from our family.
Kenny and Nanny.  Best doggy great-grandmother ever. 

Kenny wore his Christmas footie PJs again on Christmas Eve :-) 

Kenny & his Bibi 
Mom & Dad, checking out the flurries.

Kenny sat at the window and watched the snow - he's like a cat. 

Kenny's Christmas present from his grandma!

Kenny's First Snow

Kenny got to see and walk in his first snow this last Sunday in Virginia, and LOVED it!

What is this white stuff?

No really, what is it?
Whatever it is, I want to eat it! 

No really, Dad, put me down so I can eat it! 

Play play play! 

Do I have snow on my face? 

This is awesome! 

Really, Dad, I don't care about taking cute pictures...

And look for other dogs, and critters! 

And more snow!! I want to play in the snow!!
And play he did:

Family Photos in Philly Fall 2013

Update: Now that the Christmas Photos are out, I've added photos to this - enjoy! 

Hey look, I'm posting on the Family Blog! 

Sorry this has been dormant: as I talked about on the Christine's World blog, I've lost some steam.  But here's the perfect post to dust off those cobwebs - Family Pictures!!

I really wanted to capture our year in Philly, so we found a photographer (Russell Photo Studio) and did it in October, in and around Washington Square, just near my house. 

I don't want to give too much away, because we're using a lot of the pictures on our Christmas cards, but here's a b&w preview:

Washington D.C.

Curtis' Mom came to visit us to see Washington D.C., and we had a great time! 

First Ride on the DC Metro! 

Honest Abe, always a highlight

The new Martin Luther King memorial - I was happy to finally see it 

One of the series of quotes at the memorial, one of my favorites

First Lady Michelle Obama's First Inaugural Ball Gown, it was beautiful to see in person at the Smithsonian Museum of American History

Something from the death of my distant relative, President Harding, back in 1923.

In front of the Washington Memorial, while it still had the scaffolding

Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (the annex near Dulles) - seeing Discovery up close was a true highlight of the weekend. 

And of course, some Kenny time :-)
