We were a little delayed because we couldn't find everything we were looking for. Ev and I decided to make good use of our down time while Nick was running around our apartment trying to find last minute odds and ends. I'm quite certain that when this picture was taken Nick was fervently looking for Evie's left ear which seems to be missing.
Eat your heart out Nelly.
You know this girl's packin' nothing but chub under that t-shirt.
Nick took a break from the stuffing the car to teach Evie how to tie knots. (In case of an emergency while climbing mountains, hiking, or surfing - at least that's what Nick tells her while they are practicing square knots)
She's definitely got it down.
That's the face of a future YCL right there.
Oh, and here's Evie just loving how cool her mom is.
Once we got to Yakima I made my brother, sister, and cousin Tara take pictures of us for our "Christmas" Card. I say the word "Christmas" with caution because I'm pretty sure no one got them until January 6th. Whatevs! Lots of people say "Merry Christmas!" after New Years - they are about 2 feet tall and they live in the North Pole.
I'm not going to post our actual Christmas Card photo because our outtakes are so much better.
Evie has recently learned how to pick her nose. She conveniently does it every time she sees a flash. Plus it looks like I'm trying to pick a wedgie in a very, very disturbing way.
Sorry I'm late guys, I just had to smoke 2 lbs. of marijuana before taking our family pic. Ev thought I was soooooo funny though.
Where do I begin? I'll just end with the fact that Ev is totally bored and annoyed with her weirdo parents.
In case anyone is wondering, Nick still thinks I'm smoking hot, which is why he is trying to grab my boob in this picture.
(He does seem pretty happy about it though, right? Yeah, I still got it.)
Okay, that's enough of the outtakes. Here are the two runners up.
Runner up #3:
The only reason we didn't pick this picture is because Nick and Evie were too prominent. I felt like I was being shadowed by them, so we decided to go with something else.
Runner up #2:
This was such a tough decision. We really couldn't decide between this fabulous picture and the one we sent. We were so stressed about the decision that we decided to flip a coin.
Bet you all are wishing it would have been tails...
The next few days leading up to Christmas were full of goofing off, eating, and relaxing.
Ev REFUSED to give the spoon back after this picture was taken.
Slim Shady and Evelyn Ice working it.
Next up? More Christmas and most definitely a Flashback Friday. I'm refreshed and more ready than ever to make a fool of myself.
