Easter 2010

Thank you grandma Beth for outfitting my beautiful children! I just love it when my mom gets fixated on dressing my kids! She didn't get "best dressed" in highschool for nothin'! Wait... I just counted and that was almost 40 years ago! I guess it is true that good taste NEVER goes out of style!

I can't possibly begin to play catch up... so I'm just going to start from this weekend. And if I remember something cool that happened over this last year when we've been MIA, well, I'll just stick it in randomly... because this is my blog and I can do what ever I want! Ok, ready? Here I go!
My baby turned 1! Happy Birthday Allie!
(ok- so her birthday was February 15th but we finally got around to celebrating it the day after Bear turned 3. But he doesn't know he's 3 yet because I haven't got around to celebrating his birthday yet. Shhhh. Don't tell him.)
Thank you Grandma Liz and Grandpa Mark for letting us party at your place!
There is no place like home!
And thank you Grandma Beth for the awesome pinata (among other things).
It was a hit! (ha, ha)
Are these really all my children?

Everyone is always telling us we look alike. I just don't see it. Do you?

Disneyland in June

Grandma Liz retired from 100 years of teaching this year and to celebrate, she and Grandpa Mark treated the ENTIRE family (7 of their children plus spouses and children) to 3 days at Disneyland! Does that lady know how to party or what! It was so much fun seeing all the cousins reconnect! Thanks Liz and Mark for some wonderful memories!
