-Two new children
-Approximately 1600 diapers
-1200 ounces of laundry soap
-27 pounds of baking soda
-A new dishwasher, car, and garbage disposal (see bullet point #1)
-Seven weeks of home construction
-Three months with no more than three consecutive hours of sleep
-Vivi starting nursery school
-Delicious meals made by friends who took pity on us
-Quiet winter evenings by the sewing machine
-Booboos and daddy's remedies
-Amelia Bedelia, why must Vivi love you so?
-Our beloved Brown student who helps us several days a week and Aunt Jane who lived with us for the summer and still says (honestly, I think) that she misses seeing her nieces everyday.
And lots and lots of joy.
See you in the New Year!
