Some Fun Things

I have been trying to learn how to work our new computer and it's super annoying. I want it to be exactly like my old one...my picture editing stuff is different and I don't have photoshop installed yet, so now I'm behind on my blog which I hate. But since I hate posting 5 posts in a row even more, here is a catch up post with a few recent fun things.My brother in law was in town for work and we finally were able to meet up this time. I'm so glad he called us because it's always fun to see family and get a break from the mundane, every day schedule. And Easton thought Uncle Andy was AWESOME. We are very much into Toy Story again, due to the new movie (which was great, everyone should see it, young or old, kid or no kid.). The other day Easton said, "but mom how am I supposed to be a real cowboy if I don't have any cowboy boots?" Well, Uncle Andy has cowboy boots, and even though E could barely stand in them, he thought they were the coolest. He also had a big truck and trailer that Easton thought was way cool. Andy was nice to let him climb on it, ride in the truck and check everything out. Thanks for stopping by Andy!


I was pretty excited to finally get my cansolidator...although I actually think I have less room in my cupboard now because it's (my cupboard) a weird size...I love this thing and later when I have a real pantry it will come in handy. Plus the box entertained both kids for awhile and that's always a bonus.

Carly smiled. It only took 11 months. And right around father's day she took her first steps.




This video you may find funny, or it may make you feel like calling CPS on me. But please don't.

Oh my gosh, that last video is funny! What did Steve say about that?
I love Easton in the huge cowboy boots! So cute! I used to wear my dad's cowboy boots when I was about this same age and his big hat too. I think I have a picture somewhere, I'll have to dig it out.

those videos are too cute! that last one made me laugh! So like the consolidators, we are hoping to get some to fill up the empty space at the bottome of our pantry. I miss yoU!

I love that picture of Andy and Easton with the boots! So cute! Also, that last video is super funny, not because I like watching her fall, but because the confused/scared look on her face. hahahaha. And oh my heavens. She seriously gets cuter by the SECOND. The walking is SOOOOOOOOOO precious!!!!!!! I miss her terribly!

I'm SO glad you're coming to visit me :) :) :)

Danielle said...

haha- oh dear. Walking babies are so cute. It's like...everything is just so much cuter when they are little people. Sounds like fun with Andy coming to visit!

She is walking already? Sheesh, Miles better be on his way soon too. And I did a PR campaign on the hazards of mini blinds for two years - so you better be careful!! She was supervised, so I won't turn you in...

Lizzy said...

She is SO big! She's like a toddler already. How did time go by that fast?! Both the kids are so cute!

Oh, and I hate working a new computer. Seriously sucks.

And, I want a cansolidator. I'll be adding that to my list.

My Jay was really into Toy Story when he was Easton's age and he thought it was so cool that he had an Uncle Andy who was a cowboy...that's back when Andy not only had boots but a horse too!
Jay asked for all the new Toy Story stuff that's out for his birthday...he's gonna be 13!!!
Love your blog!

WHAT?!?! Carly is walking? She is the cutest and I am so sad I am not there seeing it with my own eyes. We loved Toy Story (yes, I cried) and I thought of you. Congrats on the cansolidator, I want that. Very exciting stuff. We miss you guys.

I watched that first video 5 times trying to figure out why anyone would call CPS on you. And then I saw there was a 2nd video- which WAS very funny. She is super cute. What else was I going to say? I don't remember now. Oh yeah, figuring out new computers is the WORST. I've never been very savvy in that department. Oh hey, send me a reunion invite! Amy Andrus said she found out through Facebook, but I don't have one. I'm not sure I'm gonna go 'cause I'm gonna be HUGE, Amy's not even going and you'lll probly be a social butterfly the whole evening, so who else would I talk to? But I wanna know when and where, just the same.

So cute! I loved the videos and can't believe she is walking. Where did the baby go? GRRRRR!

I hear your pain about the new computer, I'm back to the old one. I'm hoping you, Steve, Michael, Jenni, can help us with ours!

Thirteen days and counting, what does she need for her birthday?
Love you guys!

Carol and Bruce said...

That is the most adorable picture of Carly smiling...worth waiting for!

Joseph still talks about Uncle Andy from our camping trip two years ago. He's so fun.

I love Easton's comment about being a real cowboy! What a cutie!

And no way Carly is walking! I must see it with my own eyes!
