Despite earlier reports of a drought, Julie cranked out a fantastic set of photos today. It was important to have a big set of cute photos because I owe a life debt to someone. I'll explain.

I grew up in Rochester, New York, and Rochester is the home of Wegman's. Wegman's is a grocery store chain, but it's also a way of life for people who live in western New York state. It is regularly voted the best grocery store in the nation. In a region that's been down on its luck for a while, Wegman's is one thing everyone back home can be proud of. If you ever want to get into a knife fight, walk into a room full of Rochestarians and say, "Wegman's sucks!" They'll be fighting over who gets to keep your ears as a trophy.

A new branch of Wegman's opened in a suburb of Philadelphia a while back, and when Julie has business trips out there she'll bring me goodies that remind me of home. But during her most recent trip, she wasn't able to make it to Wegman's. A friend (whom we'll call M.R.) offered to pick up a dozen of my favorite Wegman's cookies, but named her price: a new set of extra-cute photos. So here they are, some cute photos.

We'll start with some photos of they guys indulging their muse.

Nate and Will enjoy playing the piano, and by playing, I mean banging on it. For those keeping score at home, Will is dressed in red.And Nate is in blue.The piano banging sessions can go on for a long time, and they can be a little hard on the ears. But they are cute... right M.R.?Piano not cute enough for you? How about two babies in a single crib?Oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Want more? OK, you've got it. I give you: baby tickle fight...You probably think that's about as cute as it can get. But you'd be wrong. That's because you've never seen baby Grecco-Roman wrestling.Nice pin by Will there. Yes, in order to keep he Wegman's supply lines open, we're willing to stoop to cliche, even if it means topless baby photos.I'm having a hard time telling which kid is which here, but I'm pretty sure that's Will on the left. The guys helped end the confusion and knocked up the cuteness quotient considerably with the use of hats.Actually, with the use of "hat." Nate is quite fond of his knit cap, and he's not shy about wearing it.Will prefers to wrap himself in his favorite blanket.And sometimes goes without the blanket.We finish up this extra-cute, extra-long photo set with the guys wrestling over a beanbag Santa.And there you have it, M.R., the most extensive photo post I've ever done. Thank you so much for getting those Chinese marble cookies. I ate them all in about 12 hours. It was a comforting taste of home. Hopefully the pics were sufficiently cute.

All this talk of cookies that seem to be exclusive to the east got me curious. God Bless Google. Anyway, Matt, thought you might be interested in this link.
