So it's been a year since I started tracking our blog's visits. I wanted to make sure more people then my mom were coming to see our site. So anyways I thought I would pass on this info to our readers. Here's a look at our blog's stats over the past year:

That's it for stats, but what would a Peterson post be without a story about Sydney. We recently posted on the right side of our blog a link to some pictures. If you saw the picture of the melted plastic fork on the light bulb... here's the story. I was putting Sydney to bed one night and as we walked into her room I could smell burning plastic. I had no idea where it was coming from so I walked around a bit and couldn't find anything. I turned and saw that the lamp next to Sydney's bed had something in it. I walked over and looked into the lamp and saw a melted plastic fork sitting on the bulb. I didn't know if Sydney had put it in there or if it was put in there earlier when her and Joshua were playing. So I didn't want to accuse her without knowing what happened. Then Sydney asks me something like this "Can I see my spoon?". Granted it was a fork, but either way I knew that what had happened was intentional. Well hopefully next year is as good as this one.

'Till next time,
Matt, Heather, Sydney and little Aubrey
