We've been up to a lot lately. We just returned from a week long visit to Oregon, which included lots of food, snow, good family time, and being trapped in a car with a toddler infatuated with Dora. Many, many hours of listening to Dora. Which is infinitely better than many, many hours of listening to Delaney cry, right? A post about our Thanksgiving trip is on my to do list.

In the meantime, here are a few photos documenting what we've been up to this November.

This kid loves to do art. She's in her element when she's at her easel.

She hates having dirty hands...except when she's painting.

Our 1998 Plymouth Breeze. Back in the day, it was our "good car." We've planned on driving it for as long as possible; sadly, that day came a few years too early. A blown head gasket that would cost more than the worth of the car forced us to say good-bye to the Breeze. It was an emotional farewell for us, but on the upside, the VW Squareback may actually get a new engine. We're not happy around here unless we have multiple projects on our hands.

This is me. I haven't posted any belly shots in a long, long time. I'm 29.5 weeks in this picture. Jude seems to be a happy, moving and grooving little guy.

Family portrait. We look awfully tired. That's what happens when you spend 23 hours driving in a car together over the span of 2 days. But we look happy, too, because we are a happy little family.
