Happy Birthday Little One!!

Sam's shiney new bike!!

Kolbie and his tunes!

I told you I would download the pics this week!
Isn't he adorable! Tunes a must for this little guy!
He's too smart.."where's my IPOD?"

I have been soo lazy lately about downloading my pictures because my computer is having personal problems!!! I don't understand why machinary has to be soo difficult sometimes!
So you don't get pics with this post! Sorry :(

Life has been kindof crazy this last two weeks!

Trisha and the kiddo's came and stayed with us for a week! We had high hopes of accomplishing tons of things! I took the funniest picture of Kolbie! (I promise to download and post them this week!) He found Samantha's cd player and Austins Disney mixmax and he was sitting around listening to them when he suddenly was sound asleep! It was the cutest thing! Trisha really should invest in a mixmax for him! He'd take naps everyday with it!!!! Miriam on the other hand is busy busy busy! We had babies everywhere! They both loved to be outside on the trampoline! Trisha and I did get some sewing done, bracelets and watch bands made, and we accomplished having dinner over everynight before BEDTIME!

The boys started baseball practice and so we have been spending 2 or 3 nights a week at the park! Austin is pitching and doing awesome at it. John who is one of the coaches calls Jeff Jeter, he is awesome at batting!! Our first game is on the 6th of May! Go Yankees! (Thats our team)!

Samantha also had a birthday during all of this! She got a shiney new bike and of course clothes clothes clothes! I will post pics of those too!! I can't believe my baby is 7!

Todd purchased this nice book about paper airplanes........just imagine 10 airplanes flying around my house at the same time!!! Im such a lucky girl! He now sits at church and tries to remember how to make them! One of these days ones going to go flying up to the bishop!

Then theres me! I Just keep us all where we are supposed to be going!

This was definitely a much needed day!

Summing it Up!

Two families + City of Downey + Easter Morning = Lots of Pics!

I decided that there were way to many pictures to post and
it takes entirely too much thought on which ones to post!
So I picked random pictures from all of our family parties
and made one collage. I hope that you enjoy the pictures!
And we hope that everyone had a
HaPpY EaStEr!

Digital Scrapbooking

I took the plunge and tried to do some digital scrapbooking!
I definitely need some practice! I also need to download some good
paper and embelishments soooo if anyone has any they want to email
me....I would be sooo happy! I also could use some ideas on how to make
this better and some tricks of the trade!!
(Peggy, that's another reason you should come visit me!!)
P.S. Printing suggestions would be great to!

One Year

I can't believe that it has been a year. Mom would be outside right now cutting her tulips or daffodils, she would be wanting to go for walks around the neighborhood, and she would be itching to take pictures of the pretty spring flowers. I remember when Sam was one and mom was taking her around the yard and placing her in the flowers just to practice taking pictures! Right about now she would be planning a fishing trip for dad just so she could take pictures in the mountains. Mom would be planning a trip to Beaver to help Grandma with her yard work or to work in the wood shop! I often wonder what in the world she could possibly be doing up there without a camera!! I wonder sometimes if she is up there organizing her family!! I love her and miss her so much. I know that she has a job to do but I often wonder why her job here was done! I still need her! I know what your all going to say "She is still here"! But it's not the same! I can't ask her how do you do this or what is that recipe that you've never written down or how do you make this or that!I still had a lot of things to learn from her about being a mom.
I have so many questions and no answers!
I miss her and I love her so much!
