Congrats to Doug and Helen on the birth of Ophelia on Monday. She's got a blog here. We can't wait to meet her.

In other news, we haven't posted in awhile but my parents were here for Thanksgiving which was really nice. It's tough living so far away from family and I'm glad they are able to visit regularly. We got up Christmas lights, which I keep forgetting to take a picture of. It's been below freezing for days. I don't linger outside of the house much.

Also, I ordered an elliptical machine. It's the only thing I ever use at the gym anyway so it makes more sense just to have one. Mine isn't as fancy as the gym one (which had a TV built in), but I'll never have to wait for someone to finish using it. Apparently it weighs 150lbs and we have to assemble it. I'm a little concerned about building it wrong and it falling apart during use.
