Merry Christmas from Erin and her dudes! (Not pictured, Cody Cinco Chase. Yes, the 'cinco' is because he is our fifth boy dog.)

NOTE: This is an older post...I'm not currently on maternity leave ;) So. I'm on maternity leave. But I have a problem. I really can't sit still.

At least 12 times a day, I have to sit still. I'm nursing … [Read more...]
