Amanda and I went to Target the other day to register for Little Monc. After scanning strollers, diapers, and crib sheets with this “present gun” – it somehow found its way to the electronics aisle. :) Little Monc needs an XBox, right?   – BTW… if our families read this… our registries are at Target and Amazon so far … Continue reading »

Lunch with Mom
