Loving the Rewards!

I have a never ending list of To-Dos that keeps getting longer. So, after Burke goes to bed, I get started on that list, and usually am not in bed myself until about 2am. Well, the last two nights, I’ve spent more time that I want to admit on Shutterfly.com. You see, I started collecting […]

Corn Fed

Burke is at an age now where it seems like every day he’s doing something new. Annemarie and I consistently find ourselves trying to get each other’s attention without making Burke stop whatever cute thing he’s doing. Common phrases include… “Look at your son right now.” “Did you just see him…” “Quick get the camera!” […]

After the bridal shower at Juliann’s I came back to the neighborhood to the men cooking dinner.  Well, Dave was doing most the cooking….Brett was more like the court jester. I’m sure that Emily had some pun prepared for this picture, but I wasn’t getting it.  Dinner was fantastic, as usual.  So nice to spend […]

Farewell to the Fairfields

Today was a bittersweet day for many reasons….one of them being that we are sending off our dear friends, the Fairfields, to Kansas City, KS. Caitlin has been accepted to a Master’s program there, and Nile got a great job there too! We are so excited for them, the new opportunities for both of them, […]

What a special treat it is to be this little man’s Mommy.  Last year on Mother’s Day he was just a week old.  Now he’s such a big boy!  We tried to get a photo….and well, these is about the best we could do with a little boy that doesn’t want to sit still, and […]

Our New Wednesdays

Posted in: Burke- May 09, 2012 Comments Off on Our New Wednesdays

For the last year, for every Wednesday that we were in town, we’d been meeting up with our May/June 2011 PEP group and loving it the whole time. The next few Wednesdays….well, all of May, June and half of July….are now drastically different for both me and Burke. You see, I am now facilitating the […]

Getting a little Case Crazy

Posted in: Us- May 06, 2012 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I got it in my head that I wanted to make my niece a case for her nook for a (very late) birthday present. I’d pinned several online tutorials, but ended up liking this one the best. So, I set out one afternoon to get started. The first one I started, […]

Just some iPhone Pics

So, we might be raising up a couch potato….or should I say a couch pasta.  Burke was totally content to sit on the couch with a bowl of noodles watching baseball. Daddy grabbed this shot one morning.   Looks like we’ve perfected the “H”. We went to the SB Zoo for Family Night on Friday […]
