Sam gets his first Christmas tree...

...and it snows!

He loves the nativity scene.

We call this his worship time.

"Do you like my new chair?"

Slow dancing is a little different these days.

The men of the family at Jason and Amber's wedding.

Sam gets a taste of the Southwest while in San Diego.

A baby to bear chat. "Come here often?"

We're blogging fools now!

Sam's second month

Here is a various assortment of Sam pictures. He has recently started smiling, so we think we'll keep him.

"I like mommy's hair."

No, these tracks aren't actually used. But it makes for a funny picture, doesn't it?

"Let's go play outside daddy!"

Uncle Scott making noises with his hands.

Look ma, no hands!

And for anyone who might call CPS out there: no, he didn't actually get any beer. But again, it makes for a funny shot, eh?

Sam's Halloween costume

That smile makes it all worth it.

Sam's GQ shot.

Sam arrives (2 months late!)

No no...Sam didn't arrive 2 months late. We're two months late in blogging his arrival. Samuel Morehouse Richards arrived to the world September 18, 2007. He is doing very well. Mommy and Daddy are quite tired, but other than that we could not ask for anything more. Here are a few pictures of Sam from the first days.

Cinque Terre, April 2007

Cinque Terre (5 lands) is a magical little strip of land on Italy's west coast. The water is clear and cool and so inviting after hiking to each of the towns. Even with the throngs of Italian tourists, we had a great time. To break up the drive we stayed with our friend Jessica who has a great little Tuscan appartment not far from the area.
This was just the first course!
Anyone want to go swimming?

Check out his kitchen skillz!

A little view of the pregnant tummy, for any who might be interested.
Enlarge this one to really get the beauty.

This one would also be better if enlarged.

Our friends in Germany

Our good friends Dave and Daniela left Vicenza to live up in Germany. They also took our favorite German American kids (Liam and Finn) with them. But we forgive them because it is so fun to visit them.
Jim gets fatherhood practice tickling Finn...

...and takes some lessons from a pro.

Friends and hot chocolate, how can this be better?


He's random, but we thought he was blog-worthy.

Liam shows his brother the finer points of being an automobile.

I know which stuffed animal I want to squeeze.
