January Catch-up

I'm posting like catch-up is my business. Here are some shots from January I have been slacking on but want to post.

I love this face a million times over, and the leg...where does she come up with this stuff?!
A day in the life
Froggie gets lost for days...again...
Did I mention we acquired and, then rather quickly, sold a snowmobile this month?

A Face Only a Mother Could Love

This kid...


She cracks herself up. And "mmmmmms" every bite of food. And moves her head back and forth to say no. Responds with "da da da" when I say "mamama"? She has her four front teeth and says Gigi too (I swear it). Most recently, she's started getting pressure cooker crazy with excitement at the dinner table. She gets all happilyy worked up like she is going to say something and then just starts laughing. She also breaths heavy like she is upset like a bull but then just smiles when you "call her out" on it. She's got no gross motor skills...well, few...well, we're working on it.- She just hasn't had the need thus far. She loves meat and sweet potatoes and grabbing neck meat. She also fancies pooping in the tub.



... I just can't get enough of her baby blues.

Warm Weather

This fine weather has made for some beautiful days around here. I'm feeling a bit low today but looking at pictures of you always make me smile, especially on your birthday. Here's hoping you're somewhere enjoying yourself too!

18 in a Day


My niece turned 18...kind of a big milestone but in today's culture, the celebration seems to fizzle in between getting your driver's license and graduating from high school. Still Deb managed to make a fuss to let her know how great she is. We all met at Steuben's for some fine eats and good laughs. So proud of my sister for pulling together us women to celebrate the newest one in our group. There are days when I still think of myself as a college student going to meet her in California. And yet now she climbs mountains and volunteers and works. Can't wait to see where she heads next!
