Party Photos

A little while ago we went to a friend's daughter's 1st birthday party. Everything was perfectly lovely, and afterwards my friend sent me these photos of the children. So cute! And so nice to have some updated photos!

On Becoming An Old Lady

A while ago I posted about how I was turning into my mother. These days though, I feel more like I'm turning into my grandmother.

I'm not sure what started it, but it's getting worse.

I read books like this:


I find myself more interested in what the older ladies at the gym are talking about than the women more my age.

I find blogs like this one fascinating.

And I can't tear myself away from shows like Rosemary and Thyme, a pair of crime-solving older-lady gardeners. It's really quite fabulous. Here's a picture for you to prove it:

It doesn't seem quite the appropriate way to spend the last year of my twenties, but I must admit that I am thoroughly enjoying it. Now excuse me while I go and take a mid-morning nap...

We've had a fun and eventful summer so far! Here's the ridiculous number of photos to prove it:

Elsie's first plane ride! Headed to SLC and ID for Brian's Brother's wedding! 

This is us finally on a plane! (We had spent 4 hours in the airport the day we were to fly out, but the delays were so bad that we ended up going home and catching a different flight the next day.)

Lots of this happened :)

Elsie and Coda the cat at Angie and Mike's where we stayed for a fun-filled day before being whisked away to ID.  (Thanks again guys! Can't wait to host the THREE of you next time you're in our neck of the woods!)

I finally made it to the potato factory! I got a bunch of pictures here but none of Bobbie and Hayley's wonderful wedding...

Riding around Bear World :)

Where are the bears?

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Isaac's very most favorite ride that he didn't want to leave even with the promise of pizza!

Elsie with Prince Ali!

So good to catch up :)

Fun at Great Grandparents Earley's house

The kids were pretty ecstatic about the cats :)

Grandma Kathy!

Grandpa David!

Napping before we met up with Kim and her girlies... 

Brian's feat of balancing 6 cases and two car seats while wearing a heavy backpack and pushing a stroller!

Sad picture... While we were out of state having a brilliant time, Saint Louis got hit with a ton of rain which at some point caused our retaining wall to come down. This then led to our house flooding and us having to move out for about 5 or 6 days. So grateful to Chelsey and Jacob for letting us stay at their place while they were away! There's still a lot of work to be done on our house but hopefully the worst is over!

Elsie's favorite toys at our local library :)

Isaac had a lot of fun with some baby cream during "nap time". He ate it too, I'm pretty sure... I'm not sure why these kids love sudocrem so much?!

He got all over Elsie too...

Isaac helping Daddy in the yard.

At the Muldowney's place while our house was dried out :)

On the way in to the library.

So fun! These kids are cute if I say so myself :) Lets hope the rest of the summer goes less eventfully but just as nicely!

"It's Snowman!"

This weekend was a lot of fun. 
Sunday we built a snowman (who we dubbed "King George") while the children were napping. 
I've spent most of the snowy weather with a cold so it was really fun to go outside and play.

I was rather pleased with his mustache and debonair expression.
Isaac just smiled and stared at him for a while in awe.
Action shot of Brian doing an excellent shovelling job (see the snow in midair in front of the lamppost?)
March is off to a great start :)

Elsie's Birthday Party + Cake Smash (Day 28)

Yesterday we celebrated Elsie's first birthday with the traditional cake smash.  

Isaac was not happy to be strapped into his booster seat (after pilfering half a plate of cookies).  

"I'm open!" -Says Isaac.

Blowing out the candle was a team effort as Elsie mostly wanted to grab the flame. 

At first she daintily removed the candle and handed it to Brian. 

Then we gave her a spoon to see if she'd use it. 

After the spoon didn't quite yield the desired result, Elsie grabbed a fist full of frosting...

And the daintiness was gone! 

Cute little birthday girl.

A few friends came to celebrate with us. Here are the Rosbachs.
Miranda was our in-house photographer during the cake smash. I love Amelia's expression in this one - a halo couldn't make her look more angelic :)

Whitney & Evelyn :) Evelyn is so cute and kept trying to tell Elsie funny Australian expressions to make her laugh. 
So much fun. Here's to another fun-filled year with our lovely Elsie-Belsie!
