Three's A Crowd

My job as a wife is in jeopardy.

I'm in danger of being replaced.

By the iWife.

Also know as the iPhone 4S.

And I'm beginning to feel like a bit of a third wheel. They're inseparable. They spend all of their free time together. And she's always all up on his butt. I mean, I'm all about PDA, but seriously. It's a bit much.

The other day I overheard Dave talking to his iWife, and I'm pretty sure he was whispering sweet nothings.  Then I heard him say, "Remind me September 25 is my mom's birthday."

That's when I knew I was in trouble.

And the iWife responded in a delightfully cheerful tone, "Shall I create a reminder?"

I mean, we all know the appropriate response should have been, "What am I? Your secretary?"
      (Wifery 101)

And when he gave her the go ahead, she was a little too quick to reply in her sing-song Tinker Bell voice, "Reminder created!" I mean, the eagerness. It was embarrassing. Show some restraint, Girl.

At least I've got better boobs.

And, yes, she'll be going sailing with us. God forbid we leave her at home.

Four your viewing enjoyment, here are some pics from our Navidad, which we spent soaking up the sun in Sayulita. 

Evie at Lancha and a proud papa. 

She got a bee sting for her 9th birthday on Christmas Eve. 

The Barefoot House was so cozy on Christmas. 

A Christmas Fiesta at our house. The kids celebrated with ginormous Mexican sparklers. 

How festive is this latte? Happiness in a mug. 

Soli's not too big on surfing, but she's serious about her beach fashion.

 Cole morphed into a merkid while we were there. 

 Dave owning the "Left" on the paddle board. 

 Cole & Em "sharing" a sweet ride. 

 I was so proud of Em for catching this sweet wave on Cole's short board. 

My beautiful sun kissed princess. 

I was so please to see the hibiscus blooming in our jardin. 
Feliz Ano to you and yours!
