grandpa bob

A while back my grandfather gave me a box full of old pictures of his time in the service. After a computer crash and a few other setbacks ... Ashli and I have finally finished scanning and editing them. Thought I would share a few here on our blog. It was a great experience to go through these pictures and learn just a little more about my grandpa Bob. Thanks Ashli for helping and lending your editing skills.

That's my grandpa on the left. I think there is a family resemblance!

newborn photo shoot

I had so much fun taking these pictures of this sweet, tiny baby boy. I so wish I had better pictures of my babies when they were this tiny. They keep growing too fast! Check out the rest of the pictures here.

flower baby shower

Last week, my friend Greta and I threw a baby shower for Brittney and the baby girl she is expecting next month. We decided on a flower theme and got a little carried away with all the flowers we made. It was so much fun and looked awesome too!

A close up of a few of the many flowers we made. Most of them were just for decoration, but some of them had pins or hairclips on the back for guests to take home as favors!

Flower cupcakes

Notice all the flowers hanging around the food table
The pretty mom-to-be opening presents

All the gifts were so cute, and so pink!
I wish I had taken more photos, but I still have to learn how to be party host and photographer at the same time.

My boys are not mischievous. I usually don't have to worry too much about them getting into trouble while I am in the shower or busy cooking dinner. Sure they know how to make a mess, but usually it is just their own toys that they scatter about.

However, on Wednesday I had to shovel the driveway before we could go out for the day. I was only out there for about twenty minutes, and when I came in, this is what I saw:

There were strawberry leaves everywhere because they had gotten into the fridge (which they never do on their own, except to get a drink), opened the fruit drawer, pulled out the unopened box of strawberries (that I was saving for Valentine's dinner), cut the tops off with their children's scissors, and ate all but 2 of a $5 box of strawberries. At least they were eating healthy, right?

my little rock stars!

Our friends let us borrow their Beatles Rockband for a few days, and we had so much fun with it! Bart and I play Rockband, which is too hard for the kids, but they loved Beatles Rockband. Here is a cute video of Ky on drums and Kade singing. He knows most of the words because, "Here Comes the Sun" is on The Bee Movie. However, before you watch this, you have to promise to ignore me playing guitar in my pj's in the background, and ignore the fact that half way through, Kade looks like he's going to wet his pants. Otherwise it's a very cute video.
