Quote from Nels

"I think there are so many people in the world that birthday parties start every three minutes or less."

Be My Valentine!

I don't like much about valentines day, but I do love making valentines. I have memories of making valentines with my siblings when I was a kid. They were always the same, Hearts cut out with a piece of gum taped on and they said "Please 'chews' me for your valentine." These are the valentines Nels and I made for his class this year.

California trees are confused...

... so are my children.

I have always thought it was fun to drive around town in December and see the red and gold leaves falling off the trees. And even more fun when the trees bloom in January. Here it is the middle of Winter for some, but here in California, I guess we just didn't get the message.

Three ring Circus

I never really enjoyed dressing up for Halloween, still don't, but I do enjoy dressing up my kids. Hopefully they enjoy it as much as I do!
Dash the clown.
(I love the shoes, I think they go perfectly with this costume.)
The sweetest lion you ever saw.
Often mistaken for Indiana Jones, but with the ring o' fire it should have been obvious he was a lion tamer!

I am lamenting the fact that my brother doesn't work at J Crew anymore. I was just on their website and even the sale section is too pricey for my budget.

(Can you believe that I still remember my login password?)

We have been busy and I have pictures to prove it.

We lost Dashiell and Nels found him in the dryer.

We started the zucchini harvest. This is one of the smaller zucchini we have picked so far. I don't know what we are going to do with all of the zucchini 6 plants are going to produce this summer.
We had house guests, and yes, that is an air mattress in the middle of the living room and we all for some reason chose to congregate there despite the relatively empty family room right around the corner.

We played at the beach.

Nels doesn't care so much about the sand and water as he does the train at the beach.

We had Family Home Evening. This is Dashiell conducting the music.

We have had lots of good food. It is so much fun to cook for guests. Since everyone has been gone we have had macaroni and cheese, hotdogs, and chicken nuggets.
We visited the discovery science center.

Nels on a bed of nails.

Dashiell doing a dinosaur bone puzzle. I love how hard he is working at it.

We hung out with Grandpa and Grandma Buhrley and lots of cousins.
We watched the fireworks.
We blessed our little baby Liesel.
Look at the beautiful hand smocked dress my friend made for me. I love it.

This is just 21 of the of the nearly 700 pictures we just added to our hard drive.
