This year was the first year we received a fun little visitor. Buddy was the name that was agreed upon. We enjoyed his daily escapades. Usually the first thing Lucy said when she awoke each morning was, "I see Buddy." Even Edward, who wakes much earlier than the rest of us, searched for Buddy when he got up each morning. Here are most of his shenanigans.
He used a dry-erase marker on the kids' photos on his very first day.
Getting buff on a pull-up bar
Ready to roast a marshmallow
Aiming a nerf gun at unsuspecting people
Resting (on Ross's insulin) in the refrigerator
TP-ing the tree
Coloring for the little girls
Trying to bust into Mallory's piggy bank
Getting tangled in hair bows
Graffiti in the bathroom
Doing acrobatics on the curtain rod
Daydreaming with the boys' sports medals
Taking self-portraits with my camera
Taking a spin in my filthy vacuum
And on his final night, he knelt to honor the Newborn King.
Goodbye, Buddy! See you next year!
