Christmas in Dayton

Our trip to Dayton started with a bang- Baby Elisa McCusker was born the night we pulled in. We celebrated her arrival with a champagne toast. (For those of you who don't know, Baby Elisa was born in London... but will hopefully return back to Chicago soon!) Blaise can't wait to meet his beautiful baby cousin. Pictures of the newest member of the family to be posted soon!
The bulk of Blaise's trip was spent in the arms of Gran Mare, Papa Clark, Aunt Maggi and Uncle Danny. They kept him warm despite the freezing temperatures. We are already anticipating our next trip back home.

A babysitter?!?!?!

Blaise had a case of stranger danger when Tommy and I tried to sneak out for a date. Bah humbug!

More from Michigan

We celebrated Christmas at Nana's with family bingo. Blaise honed his sitting up skills while the rest of us competed for the prizes- all found in Nana's basement. It was a memorable day.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

Here are a few from baby's first Christmas. We took a family picture at church- Blaise rebelled! Pictures from Ohio to come.

Thomas x 3

Papa Clark stopped in for a quick visit before we left for London. For two days I was among three Thomases! Blaise and I took Papa Clark to one of our favorite spots, the Lincoln Park Zoo.

The London Look

Here are a few of our time out and about.

International Man of Mystery

Blaise took his first flight over Thanksgiving- visiting his Aunt Becky, Uncle Pat, and cousin-to-come, BumBum. After a long flight, Blaise was ready for a faster ride. (Particularly, the green one! ) Here are a few pictures from our journey to the McCuskers' place.
