Lion Attack #2

Just when I thought it was safe, the lion came back!
But don't worry -- this lion wasn't here to attack. He was only interested in being cute.
And brushing his teeth.

Lion Attack!

I know you won't believe me when I say it, but the other night I was attacked by a lion.
First he roared at me.
Then he pounced on my head.
Although it looks bad, I am happy to report that no mommies were hurt in the making of this blog.

Eric and Annie's Wedding

We stayed at Eric's mom's house the night before the wedding so we were there for all the pre-wedding fun.
I'm sure Annie really appreciated all Rock's help while getting ready.
Who's showing who how to put on their tie?
Annie being the very definition of a 'blushing bride.'
Eric's mom Judith and her husband Wayne went above and beyond the call of duty to host the reception in their home.
But first we had to get to the church and get these two married!
At the church, Annie got her first look at her gorgeous flowers...
And Ted got his first chance to play with fire.
After a few formal shots...
The wedding commenced. Fix officiated the ceremony while I hung out in a little glass room just outside.
I was busy watching this cute boy who refused to take off his winter hat inside.
After it was all over, Fix filled out the forms to make it official. I love how giddy Eric and Annie look in this shot.
Did I mention how gorgeous the flowers were?
Back at Judith and Wayne's house, Annie took a picture of me taking a picture of Annie taking a picture of me taking a picture of Annie taking a picture of me.
Annie brought some traditional wedding cookies from Taiwan. They were delicious.
Jenny was really excited that Eric and Annie are now man and wife. Actually, we all are. Congrats again!

Eric and Annie's Rehearsal Dinner

The night before Eric and Annie's wedding, we had a small 'Rehearsal Dinner' at a yummy restaurant in Spotsylvania, VA. The reason I put Rehearsal Dinner in quotes is because the dinner took place before we rehearsed the wedding.
Eric and his sister Jenny show off their peace-signing talent and family resemblance.
The lovely couple!
The lovely sister of the groom!
Elena and Ben, Eric's niece and father, respectively.
This was right before Rock made friends with the waitress and bartender and tried to steal their cell phones.

Karaoke with Eric and Annie!

Now Eric (our friend from Seminary) and Annie were planning on getting married on January 17th. We had never met Annie before they got engaged and in order for Megan and I to give Annie our approval, we had just one question. Can she karaoke?
The answer is YES! Okay so we would have approved of Annie regardless because she is a lovely girl who loves the Lord and loves Eric a lot. But we were extra excited to hear that she can sing a mean version of "Survivor." Beyonce watch out.
Megan was leaving. On a midnight train to Georgia.
Eric rocked out to some song that I forget now.
We feel passionately about singing Karaoke...
And about taking creepy (notice Fix's eyebrows and my eyeball that's falling off my face) extra-close-up pictures.
Fix really likes Eric and Annie.
Ted makes his selection.
Can you guess which song he picked based on the lyrics on the screen?
Ted and Megan's version of "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" always brings down the house. And by 'house' I mean our table. We were one of three tables that were full that night and the only one that was there solely for the singing...as secret agent men...
No comment.

My New Favorite Picture of Rock

Happy Birthday Joseph!

Although we don't have a picture of them together, Rock certainly loves his Uncle Joseph and wants to wish him a very Happy Birthday too!

In Honor of Susanna and Becky's Birthdays...

15 Month Appointment

And once again we were back at the doctor's office for a well check-up. This time Rock was 28.6 lbs. and 31.5 in.
The best part of the doctor's office is the paper.
And the fact that Daddy is there.

Please Sir...

Sometimes I can't help but think of Oliver Twist when Rock asks for "More."
Actually it's more like "More more more more more more more more more."

Silly Boy

Rock loves being silly.
The other morning, he came up with a brilliant idea to stuff his fork in his drink.
He thought it was pretty funny.
WE think it's pretty funny when he stuffs bananas in his mouth.
