A Face Only A Mother Could Love

So, I had a friend (who shall remain nameless) recently comment that Carson looks like Freddy Krueger. This is not a compliment. I am going to assume that she was joking!
Although Carson now makes some pretty funny faces (he likes to feel his new teeth coming in with his tongue) he is WAY CUTER THAN FREDDY!

Pantry Pride

Sometimes when you just give in to your little Type A personality needs.. it truly is fulfilling!

Scrabble Tiles Made Sassy!

I saw these on somebody else's blog and loved them! So, I ordered a few. They are pendants made out of scrabble tiles. Right now, they have a buy two get one free special and they were very inexpensive. I had several compliments when I wore one on Sunday.
Very of those "Why didn't I think of that?"--oh yeah, cause you are not artistic and creative like that. I have always loved Scrabble (the one game I consistently can beat Justin at but it is not so fun to play because each one of his turns takes TEN WHOLE MINUTES)..anyway, they are at: and I am going on today to order a few more for my mom and sister.

My Little Sis

My baby sis... She is ten years younger than me, so who would have thought that she would be having her first baby the same year as me? Yep, she is due November 23rd. Kristin will be turning 23 on July 18th, so she is she is old enough but she is SUCH THE BABY of the family!
I adore my little sister. We have so much fun together and Carson just loves to cuddle up to her and get a break from the rest of us. We found out a few days before I was going to Washington that she will be having a baby boy! So three new boys in the family all in the same year.
You can't tell from this picture but Kris is totally pissed at me here. We decided to go to this little festival in Orting on the 4th. Well, it was very TINY and not too exciting but I wanted to stay and she wanted to go (we have been through this a time or two). She pouted and whined the whole time until we left... but she was over it as soon as we got in the car. This was the only pic I got that day where she kinda cracked a smile. It is easy to feel like you are ten again when you are with your family. I think my mom told me twenty times that day not to pick on my sister:

I have to throw in a cute pic with Carson in his cowboy hat. It was almost dress code at this event. Actually, red suspenders were all the rage. I am not sure if it was a logging town or what

Funny Daddy

There is no better sound in the world than a deep belly laugh from a baby. Here are some pics of Carson with the giggles. It does not hurt Daddy's ego any either to feel like the funniest guy in the world, even if all he is doing is shaking his head back and forth like a bobble doll and making toot noises! Yes, those are real tears in Carson' eyes from laughing so hard.
