Eggnog is Reuben's favorite thing to drink. He usually doesn't get super excited (at least on the outside) about food, but I can tell that he is thrilled when eggnog starts appearing in the stores in November.
If any of my immediate family members are reading this...STOP NOW! This post may contain your Christmas presents.

I don't know about you, but I find it awfully hard to think of gifts for certain family members. Especially parents. I mean, it feels like they already have everything they need, and I don't want to buy them something that they don't.
Food is always a good idea for just about any person on your list. I mean, everybody has to eat! And most people have their special treats that they love. But you can fall into a rut with buying food for parents every year.
For as long as we've been married (and before), Reuben has worked construction. We're so #blessed that he gets to work with his dad and brothers and a couple of friends. If something comes up (like having a baby) and he needs time off, the other guys have it covered.
Last Saturday, I had a lovely morning with Helen...
After laying Jim down for his first nap, I put a kettle of water on the stove to boil. I set the table with teacups and saucers, milk, tea, and shortbread teabag-shaped cookies. Helen watched excitedly.
I am so happy to announce that my third sister had her baby, and they're all safe and sound! Little Charlotte arrived two weeks ago in the middle of the day.
She's the only one of the 2016 Berge girl babies that has an appreciable amount of hair. In fact, her (very blond) 2-year-old sister was a bit taken aback when she saw all the dark locks...I think she was used to seeing bald babies!
