Well, I did what I thought would be impossible.  I made a big quilt, at least it was a big quilt for me…and well, I actually didn’t really make it at all.  :) Our SBMQG supports a local group, Fostering Friends, by donating quilts each year for them to give to the graduating seniors in the […]

Dear Blake, At 15 months, you are so much fun!  We are so happy that you’re our little guy.  You’ve picked up a few new things in your last month of life.  You’re helpful in little ways…like how you put our your hands to put them through your shirts when getting dressed; when you’re finished sleeping, […]

We were surprised to see that the train was running on Day 3, so we hopped it for a ride! Burke and Mommy rode the roller coaster together.  He did great, but when we were coming in he said, “I a little scared”, which was the most darling thing ever.  He was so brave and […]

Brett just finished up two LONG and exhausting weeks of work with two conferences, and so when they were told to take the rest of the week off, we decided to make the most of it…..and say…..”WE’RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND!!”.  Why not, right?  We had just enough Starwood points left to cover a nice hotel […]

Dear Blake, You’re 13 months old already and you’re still our little guy. You are so adventurous! At the park, you amaze us with all of the things that you do, and try to do. At our playground, you will climb right up to the slide all by yourself, turn around, and go down the […]

When we saw a picture of a friend at the mountains in the snow over the weekend, we thought that would be a super fun idea for all of us to do on Tuesday, when Autie was going to be able to hang out with us.  So, Ma got on the phone and called a […]
