After 3 super relaxing days of hanging out, catching up, spending family time together, it was time to make our way back home. But, not before getting “the” shot. You know the one….the four generation one! We got a similar shot of Loralyn with her mom, grandma and great grandma last Thanksgiving, and this time […]

Well, I decided that I wasn’t going to be defeated by the crazy Joann shoppers, and headed back out today.  This time I had Betty with me, and I wasn’t putting myself under so much pressure.  Plus, as I had learned yesterday morning….the fabric I really wanted wasn’t really on sale until today anyways.  🙂 […]

The Day After

Happy Black Friday!! I haven’t ever partaken in BF, but I thought that I might this morning. I got up at 530 and made it out of the house without waking anyone up to go to Joann for their sale. Well, I got there right at 6am and the store was already chaos and I […]

So, we made it to Sacramento last night to spend the holiday weekend with Brett’s extended family. We took off a little bit after 5pm from SB, and decided to stop for dinner last night at The Habit in SLO. We took in Burke’s seat as it’s SO much easier than trying to eat with […]

A not so PEPpy Farewell

Posted in: Annemarie, Burke- Nov 23, 2011 Comments Off on A not so PEPpy Farewell

This morning was a bittersweet PEP meeting. One of our dear moms is leaving us. Emily and Jack are moving up north, so we gathered today to bid them adieu and well wishes for their new home. Erika was able to get a lot of us to sign a sweet card for Emily, and picked […]

Teething, Biting, and Drinking…oh my!

So, Burke is teething.  He has 6 of them now, and those top two are still coming in strong.  Well, tonight, we realized that they must still be bothering him, because he found Daddy’s belt, got a hold of it, and happily chewed on it for 20 minutes. Then, he noticed and moved onto Daddy’s […]

What we’ve done since Wednesday

Well, we’ve been up to a lot and really not so much since our last post. Here’s a quick recap. Wednesday We met up with our PEP mommies at Stow House in Goleta. We were expecting a bigger group, and thought that maybe they couldn’t find us, but then later in the week learned that […]

Day with LOTS of baby friends!

I have really enjoyed Infant Times this session, and it’s been fun to see the babies enjoying it too. This time Burke was sleeping for the beginning part but when he woke up, he had a ball! He really liked making his way to the drum in the middle of the room.  So did all […]

Twice the Baby, Twice the Fun

This was the scene at our house right before Kirsti dropped off Copper for a morning of fun.  Both my boys were still fast asleep at the 750am drop off. Burke woke up shortly after Copper arrived, and then it was time for Copper to get ready for his morning nap. Then it was time […]

Shutter Click Sunday

What a great Sunday. It’s going to be one with more pictures than words…and that’s ok, right? 🙂 I am so lucky.  This is the sweet face that I wake up to.  His eyelashes are so wonderfully delicious! We went to church, and Burke did great again.  He fell asleep and woke up right near […]
