She’s through the first trimester, so we’re starting to tell folks. She claims it is mine, but it looks like a little alien. (Damn you E.T.)
We’re having a housewarming party on Saturday. If you didn’t get an invite, but think you should’ve, send me a note and I’ll give you the details. We didn’t [...]
