Family photos

I had to take pictures of Jeff for his birthday party invitations and Gloria decided she wanted pictures of all of the grandkids on the hay bales. All of the kids were pretty cooperative. The calf that they're petting is actually ours.

Catching up

Hi all-

So I suck and am super behind. I'm not even going to attempt to post everything that's happened since we went to the Pumpkin Patch back in October so I will post the highlights.

In February (my birthday weekend actually), we casually decided to go back to the housing development that we had been coveting buying a house in since I was 7 months pregnant with Jeff. Our existing house was getting smaller and smaller and I was getting more and more irritated by it. They had dropped the prices to the point that we got a deal we could not refuse. So on February 5th, we made an offer on this house and we bought a new house!
Fast forward to March 10th, my mom moved to Washington from Pennsylvania when she lost her job after 24 years of working for the company. She's become our live in chef and babysitter on the fly. We love having her with us and love that Jeff's growing up with her around.

We moved in on April 6th and have been actively settling in. Mom has been planting flowers in the flower beds and filling all of the pots we have. Jeff helps her water the flowers on nice days. Jeff is absolutely obsessed with water. He started swimming lessons 2 weeks ago and loves it.
Our little man is not so little anymore. He will be 2 years old in just under a month. I have been keeping myself busy preparing for his birthday party as well as our upcoming Housewarming party. We never dreamed that we could be so in love with this little guy. He really is the cutest thing ever.

I will try to be better about posting updates and we hope to see lots of you at our Housewarming on June 30th!

We went to brunch at the Ikon Grill in downtown Seattle last weekend with Uncle Troy and Aunt Sarah.


Jeff got his THIRD hair cut last weekend. We bribed him with a lollipop to get him to sit still and it worked. He thought it was pretty darn good.

And the cake pans...

I'm on a mission to find every possible kind of camo....Jeff is on a mission to destroy the kitchen any chance he gets!

Yum....sugar cookies

I baked sugar cookies for Halloween and Jeff got his first taste of them. He had black icing all over his nose and face.
