Miscellaneous Marsh Updates

Not a lot has been happening around here lately. Just work, home, bath, bed, repeat...We are definitely getting into a routine. One fun thing was Barry's 40th birthday party. Dan and I had a ball! Grandma and Grandpa came into town for the boat show, so we had a built in babysitter! We had a great time. It has been a long time since I have let my hair down like that ( hence the reason there are no photos to document the momentous occasion)!
On a sad note, Dan went away for his annual "it's barry's birthday so we gotta go see his momma and while we are there we will make it a long weekend and do some diving" trip. Jack and I had a great long weekend together, but we missed the daddy terribly! Sam's weekend was not so great. The picture shows his run in with the jumping tree AFTER the cone was removed...oh yeah. It looks MUCH better now- IT WAS PITIFUL!
Jack has REALLY started teething. It has been rough on us all. At least we are starting to see the evidence of a tooth breaking through. That helps make sense of all the tears and grunting...oh and Jack complains sometimes, too! Anyway...a few pictures.

chocolate stuffed boobs

Our dear friends Jim and Vanessa graciously had the crew over for Christmas. We usually get together and go out for extravagant dinners and drinks. Well, I guess EVERYONE is changing their ways these days. Especially our gang...we are collectively about 30% unemployed:)

Anyway, we had a blast! Vanessa's son the professionally trained chef made lasagna ( 2 kinds meat AND vegetarian), Eileen brought a delicious and nutritious salad, Rayna brought some kind of kick ass asparagus wraps, Adrianne brought red wine, of course. That left dessert for me...the kitchen moron. NO PROBLEM! I had just stumbled across the most delicious semi homemade desert you have ever heard of! Crescent Rolls wrapped around mini Milky Way chocolate bars- delish! After the first round won the crowd over, I decided to make round number two. Being that it was several beers into the evening and all, I thought it would be a great idea to take part of the crescent roll and drape it decoratively across the top of each delicious little masterpiece ( cause I am just creative like that). Well, it did not turn out the way I planned. It ended up making each delicious little masterpiece look more like a boob! OOOPS :) Oh well, when this group gets together, you never know what is going to happen. Let's just say, it could have been much worse than rated R deserts! I had such a great time!

santa claus came to town

It was fun even though Jack did not realize how magical it was that Santa Claus found him all the way in Alabama! Christmas was a nice relaxing day with the family. It was filled with good food and LOTS OF PRESENTS! Jack got lots of cool things for such a tiny little boy.
