Smile Box.

| June 11, 2013

Talk, talk, talk.  Smile , smile, smile! Here’s especially to you, Great Grandma Alice, who hasn’t met him yet!  Dekker says hi! (Turn the volume up!) Jon has him trying to sit up a lot lately (Dad training times…), so I think that’s why he keeps trying here…  :)  Maybe they should work on potty […]

2013 Piano Recital!

| June 8, 2013

It’s that time of year again – Breyton just finished his piano recital! This year he played “Animal Fair” and he did great!  You can watch below… What’s fun about this song is that he played 2 hands, two different chords and changed keys at one point!  Pretty awesome.   Good job Breyton! He loves […]

Had Breyton’s Halloween piano party and recital today.  They were both excited to wear their costumes and get some early candy!  B liked having a sheep to shepherd!  :)  Our neighbor had given us the sheep costume, so we came up with the pair! They got to play some games and then all the kids […]

Breyton’s First Piano Recital!

| June 11, 2012

Yesterday was Breyton’s first big piano recital!  He worked for over a month to memorize his song, the theme song to Blues Clues!  He played at the Rialto Theater in Loveland. The theme of the recital was “Grease.”  You wonder where they play Blues Clues in Grease too?  Well, turns out none of the kids […]

Jingle Bells …

Dear Liz,

| August 9, 2011

Every time lately that I hear this song, I think of you. Let me just say first, I am not saying I think it was a blessing losing Liam – just that God knows your heart, he knows what brings you near to Him and we can’t always see (and may never) his plan, blessings, […]

Florida 2011

Off to Florida!  My uncle’s family has a timeshare that they visit 2 weeks out of the year and they invited the family to join them this year! Kids in the car, heading to the airport!  Mara enjoying facing forward for the first time!  She enjoyed sitting like a big girl in the airport while […]

Or “kitty!” Mara {LOVES} kitties! She has this baby animals book (thanks a lot, Grammy) that she will go find and drag it back to you, hold it in the air, grunt at you, and whine until you read it to her – in which she gets a wide grin, awaiting the pictures she’s all […]

Happy First Birthday, Mara!

{Wow, it’s been a little while…} My littlelest little just turned one! I can’t believe it’s been a year!  It wasn’t that long ago that my little girl was inside… and quickly made her appearance… That cry sounds familiar… And the little momma’s girl had begun. Well, let me tell you, this girl can eat […]

Mara Masters Stairs.

| April 6, 2011

Mara enjoying her permission to climb the stairs. (Her favorite spot to “race off to” upstairs is the bathroom. She thinks it’s hilarious!)


| February 25, 2011

Mara is kind of a sassy girl. She can get very excited. She can be very impatient. She can be impatiently excited! Here’s an example.  Grapes.

Laugh a little.

| February 24, 2011

I’m in need of a {laugh} or two today.
