Catching up on sleep

Brett pulled another all nighter last night after we got home from Dylin’s birthday while Burke and I got a good night’s sleep. So, Mom and I ran some errands today while Brett continued to work. We made it out to Costco, and then had a stop in at Joann’s on the way home. I’m […]

My Mom arranged a visit for us with Mrs. James, aka Quilt Extraordinaire, complete with a bias tape making tutorial. She got out her quilting book, and walked us through the steps. Who knew that math would come in handy when making quilts? The two steps formula includes getting the square root of a calculated […]

fussy baby? there’s a nap for that.

Mom was off to a class early this morning, so it was just me and Burke hanging out.  Since we didn’t get to see Erika last night, I called to see if she was able to join us for lunch, and to our luck, she was.  She was super happy to see, and snuggle with, […]

We woke up this morning, pretty early for us, and got the van all packed up. We were on the road by 8am….yes, I know, that IS early for us, isn’t it?? My mom was shocked when we called to tell her that we were on our way. This was our shortest day of driving, […]

A little less well known than Mother’s and Father’s Day… today is Grandparent’s Day!! Burke kept screaming and screaming at us today… so we realized that he wanted to send a special message out to his four wonderful grandparents. So Papa Sneed & Grandma… Pa & Ma… here’s a special treat created just for you. […]

Play Dates are Great

Daddy left bright and early this morning so we were at the house by ourselves for most of today. Burke is super loud when he wakes up, cooing, giggling, and then he also has this high pitched giddy scream. You’d think he’s unhappy, but he’s really not…just likes to use his lungs to where the […]

All Things as a Family

Burke and I went to hang out with our PEP mommies and babies this morning at Tucker’s Grove again. We came home and had some lunch with Daddy and went down for a nap in the afternoon. Daddy had pulled another all nighter, so he joined us. Family naps are the best. It’s a good […]

Fun times with Grandma & Papa Sneed

My parents were awake when we woke up, so I asked them if they wanted to take the Burkester for a walk around the neighborhood.  They were happy to, and it gave me a chance to take a shower too – score for everyone! When they got back, we learned that Burke had a great […]

Sunday Full of Love!

We woke up early again, and took Burke’s 16 week picture at 8 in the morning.  Luckily he was full of his normal morning giddiness for the weekly shot but the outtakes, and ones that happen afterwards are always so much fun too! Brett, Burke and I went to the 2nd service today so we […]

Sunday, Steamy Sunday, in Vegas

We didn’t leave the house yesterday, so when we did this morning, at 10am, the heat was a bit shocking. “They” always say that it’s a dry heat in Vegas, which I’m thankful for, but that doesn’t mean it’s not too much for a Southern California girl. When we got to church, and I put […]
