Dad celebrates his 65th Birthday!


My dad turned 65 on December 21st. Although 65 may sound old for some, dad only sees the advantages such as the fact that he now can attend the gym and take unviersity classes for free. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!

Who do I look like


Here's a nice close up of Aria at 8.5 months of age. On many occasions we've discussed what traits she got from whom. Here's our current concensus:


Tara's:
- Eye color
- Lips
- Shallow set eyes
- Head shape

Dane's:
- Eye size, brows & lashes
- Forehead
- Ears


Mixture or Unknown:
- Nose
- Chin
- Cheekbones

Let us know if you agree or disagree.

Flying Baby

Aria's 1st Christmas


We spent Christmas with Tara's family in Utah, and enjoyed a white Christmas. It was a nice contrast to the sunny skies we're becoming used to in Arizona. We had fun making gingerbread houses, sledding, and watching Kung Fu Panda. We also dropped by and saw Dane's Oma, who is 92 years young.

Family Curse


Addictions are often passed on by each generation. Look's like Aria has already picked up on her mom's drug of choice. :)

Babbling Baby
