Photo op's!

Alton is such a happy babe! I made him pose for many pictures and he happily obliged.

Brian, Alton's pops, is an artist and was chosen to do a spread in the San Fran newspaper for the Inauguration. He did a full page of "Post It's to Obama" It was fun to be able to read them and he inspired me (Brian, not Obama) to take these artistic photos:)

The pretty ladies and their babies

Pretty ladies without babies

A few with just the babes...

This photo makes me laugh, after this was taken, Hunter fell asleep in Gabes arms!

What Business is it of your's Friendo?

So...from the title you can probably tell what we have been up to! Have lots of pictures to post of the last few weeks but just have been lazy about putting them up. Last weekend was a three-dayer and we had a surprise visit from our good friends the McMullens. They moved to San Fran last year and it had been a good 7 months since we last saw them. They announced they were pregnant around the same time they announced they were moving. We lovingly refer to that move (announcing a pregnancy and a move) as "Pulling a McMullen"--it happens a bit here in the city for many different reasons but I am sure you can come up with some of your own for leaving a lovely one bedroom in the most expensive city in the US when you have a baby. But they moved for a job, Brian had an opportunity of a lifetime and couldn't pass it up....we were all excited for them but still miss them terribly! Alton, their 2 1/2 month old babe, was amazing! Our friends happen to have the cutest, sweetest babies!

So, since the whirlwind weekend of parties, babies, and talking late into the night, Gabe and I (and Dakota--she handled 30 + people in our teeny place wonderfully!)have really been taking it easy. We went to see The Wrestler yesterday, great movie, super depressing (our parents should not go see this). Then we got home and ordered some Middle Eastern food, and popped in No Country for Old Men. I had already seen this movie, loved it, but for some reason last night one of the scenes really made me feel sick. I have a super high tolerance for things, can really watch just about anything without it getting to me (not sure if this is good or bad) but last night...I made Gabe turn it off just so I could eat!

Another thing we have been doing is transferring all of our stuff from our Mac to our new PC. We really enjoyed having the mac but it decided to die on us (after eating a few cd's)and we figured we'd go back to the PC world. I liked the MAC bc it made me feel cool--many or our friends here are artists and couldn't live without the mac, but Gabe and I really just aren't that cool, so back to the wonderful world of right clicking!

The apartment needs to be cleaned and laundry needs to be done, but we are ignoring both things for a little while!
