My January Garden


Dale got me the much coveted Aero Garden for Christmas this year. I was skeptical but I must say it's working great. We started with the salad kit and here we are a month later and I have fresh lettuce in the middle of January.

Almost crawling

So Shannon has been up on all fours for a while now and she's almost got it together. So far she can move backwards across the room but if you look at this video she is so close to getting the forward part down. Once she gets it there will be no stopping her. An update on our sick house everyone for the time being is clear of this stomach bug but now Dale's throat hurts... Oh well I guess that's winter in the Northeast. video

I hate January

Not only is it so cold outside that it hurts, but everyone is sick. From the bus to work to the grocery store it sounds like everyone is about to cough up a lung. Our household however has recently been hit by the stomach bug!!!! First it was me, then Shannon and then Dale after he was nice enough to stay home with her because I had a conference. Now I feel awful again arggggg! Oh well I guess this is how we are going to roll these days. I was excited to get back to work just to get away from all the puking. Poor Shannon she had no idea what was going on. I think I still have some in my hair. We are surviving hopefully everyone else out there is missing this one.

Merry Cogan Christmas

We celebrated the Cogan Christmas the Saturday after Christmas. Emily and Tom and Sean and Marney made it into town and joined Pat, Michelle, Nathan, Allison and Mom and Dad Cogan. This year it was all about the kids.






Christmas Morning

As my mom told me this week once you have kids you have to get used to the fact that there will be lots of pictures taken on Christmas morning. So I guess I need to get used to flat hair, sleepies in my eyes and that toothpaste stuck to the corner of my mouth.... or....next year be the one taking the pictures.

This baby doll was her favorite present of the day.




Getting her Dunkin Donuts coffee fix


Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas eve with my parents and Shannon had just some many Christmas outfits this year I dressed her up in something different each event. She was the hit of the party Christmas eve but was too excited to sleep so her mommy and daddy were very sleepy Christmas morning.

Chris and Melissa's Wedding




It wouldn't be a winter wedding season if we didn't make it over to Longfellow's. I just love it there and Melissa and Chris's wedding was just perfect. Luckily the ice storm that weekend cleared out and we got a beautiful snowy evening. It was great to catch up with everyone. Unfortunately I have no pictures of the bride here but Melissa you were beautiful.
