here are some pictures of melissa from a while ago... 
i came across them today while i was waiting for a batch to run it's course and they cracked me up

these last ones are from when she thought she was going to be photoshopped as if she was skiing down a mountain....

growing up, this was the face i think i saw the most from her....
maybe i still do...

new semester new haircut

i also forgot to mention this.. matt got his once-a-semester haircut and shaved his face so he is missing a lot of hair right now. another once-a-semester thing we did yesterday was go to krispy kreme and order a dozen donuts which are nearly gone now. but now we are so sick of krispy kreme we wont want them until next semester

we also made the most AMAZING alfredo sauce. its this intense recipe that my dad got from some chef. i was so nervous i was going to ruin it. only four ingredients but like twelve steps to the recipe.  it was delicious. 
we were feeling sick so we watched transformers 2 which didn't make anything better.

if either of us have a hear attack in the next couple of years, you know what it's from
(transformers 2 + alfredo sauce of death)

i cut his bangs really short without noticing that the hairs are so small its hard to get them to move anywhere... oh well, i'm an amateur.
ps. matt and i have the same stupid hairline that goes up really high on both sides. our kids will hate us

some more break photos

there really isn't a theme or pattern to these pictures...
the thompsons have some weird kids..
emily kept trying to show off her nail polish in the pictures (bottom right)

(we had lights set up so we could take a photo for some christmas cards my folks wanted to send out)

here is us trying to pose for said photograph
we made gingerbread houses. matt made a beautiful reproduction of our half of the duplex we live in. (notice the car in the car port.)

later we went to the bellevue botanical gardens where they have the whole thing covered in lights. pretty crazy
photo op:

christmas day we got to fly out to vegas to see our friends get married
it was very cold in the desert

new years eve hockey game! (my first ever)
hot tamales are the perfect snack. we passed around a couple boxes before the game was over

the canadian team was obviously the better team. (we lost)
this lady cracked me up so i had to take this picture
this is sometime after new years... i don't know when

emily was watching the boys put decorations in the attic. she was so interested she didn't even notice i was standing in front of her...
