Our sweet nephew baby Joey turned 1 over the weekend!!!
Remember when he was born?
He LOVES Mickey Mouse, so Kaitlin had no trouble picking a theme for the party …
We got there late-ish (traffic. Boo) …. When the party was in full swing and Joey was reaching the end of his rope.
My friend-boss Maggie has spent the last year taking regular portraits of my favorite little 1-yr-old.
I love the idea of doing a collection of Baby’s First Year – especially in Maggie’s style.
Here are the highlights, but be sure you click through (the subheaders or the images) for the full blog posts and [...]
As I told you the other day …. in mid-February we stopped by Zack and Jamie’s new house in San Diego on our way to Phoenix.
Why the spur of the moment trip to Phoenix?
My grandmother has just been diagnosed with brain cancer so we decided to come visit her.
Her diagnosis and [...]
In February we drove down to Zack and Jamie’s new house!!
They bought it in the fall and have been doing a TON of work on it in the preceding months. Mid-Feb was the *perfect* weather in San Diego for a housewarming party.
Their house was built in the early 1960s, and the lot [...]
Andrew’s brother Daniel was in town for a week. … and during that time ALL the Schuberts were able to get together Saturday night.
Just for laughs, and dinner, and hanging out
And photos, of course ….
Daniel has lived in Chicago since January 2011 … and has only been able to come home to visit a couple times. And NEVER since Joey was born!
But he came home in January (2013) for a week!
Andrew was so happy
I mean all of the family was happy, but [...]
I’m so glad we did our Christmas at home – our first year in this house and our first year with the girls. I mean. Cats. I love my cats. What?
We had a slow morning…. My parents left around noon to drive back home, so before then we just relaxed.
Reminder for those of you who realize it’s the END OF MARCH, Christmas was on a Tuesday in 2012, so Christmas Eve was on a Monday, and my parents and brother came into town the Saturday and Sunday before that.
First Christmas at our new house!
I don’t always get Christmas Eve [...]
The Sunday before Christmas my house was even MORE full of family….
I basically spent most of the morning cooking, and then worked on the computer the rest of the day (until cooking again at dinner).
Aside from my parents and brother and Andrew, we also had Ted and Kristi, Courtney and Trace, Spencer [...]
Aaaand …. we’re back!
Maybe not entirely – I’m still way behind on a BUNCH of stuff – but let’s start the Christmas posts now.
Since moving into Schubert HQ early in 2012, Andrew and I decided we wanted to spend our first Christmas in our house, actually IN OUR HOUSE and not go [...]
We only go to the movies once every year and a half. It’s so much money that we really only spend money on seeing movies in the theater that we already know we’re going to love.
We love going to midnight movie premieres – everyone in the theater REALLY wants to be there, is [...]
Here is a post full of gratuitous photos of our nephew. 2nd week of December – he was almost 7 months old.
Joe and Kaitlin stopped by the house on a Saturday afternoon …. Joey got to show us his new teeth and pet the kitties (since their cat isn’t really up for that [...]
SO as I said we went to Phoenix for Thanksgiving weekend.
Just as with every visit to Phoenix, we have to make plans to see about 95 different groups of people. Thursday we did Thanksgiving dinner with my mom’s extended family. Friday we did Thanksgiving dinner with my dad’s extended family.
Luckily it was [...]
….. aaaaand…. here we go!
Waaaay back to November 2012 – Thanksgiving.
As you probably know, we were *just* in Phoenix 2 weeks prior for Miranda’s wedding, and then a couple months before that for Kim’s baby shower.
So I’m not totally sure why we decided to come out for Thanksgiving.
Either way – [...]
(I realize, of course, I am WAY behind in telling these stories. If you want a more up-to-date look at what we’re doing, check out my Project Life 2012 gallery)
These images are from the first week of November, when we were in Phoenix for Miranda’s wedding.
Andrew and I both had [...]
