Updated pictures of the kids. I figured after two years of not posting, I should maybe start again. So here goes.

catching up

Lauren's baptism

Some serious competition going on here. Whose house will be the prettiest? Things to remember when making candy houses with the Cardons, never copy Emileigh and never, EVER take any candy from Lauren's pile.

Finished product: Gingerbread houses (sans the gingerbread)

Happy Birthday Tyger!

Whoops, I forgot to get candles on Ty's birthday, but luckily, after digging through the cupboards for a while, we found a stray...hence the lone candle.

I have to admit that I've been tagged before and have never actually done it, but this time I thought I'd give it a shot. My sister-in-law Rae tagged me (actually it was a little while ago, but since I haven't blogged in FOREVER, I just saw it), and I'm supposed to put 8 things down for each question, but I don't want to do that many. I'm just doing 4 things in each question. Here goes:

4 TV shows I watch:

1. The Office
2. The Biggest Loser (I never mean to watch this, but when I flip through channels and land on this show, I get sucked in and can't turn it off.)
3. The Unit (only because Craig likes it and I'm too lazy to get up and go do something else)
4. The O'Reilly Factor

4 Favorite Restaurants:

1. The Mesa Grill (in NYC...wish I could go there all the time)
2. Tia Rosa's
3. Ruth's Chris Steak House (I'm not a big steak eater, except when I go here, which is not very often because we'd be broke if we ate here all the time.)
4. Rubio's (only for their fish tacos which I would eat for breakfast if I could...I love them that much!)

4 Things I did yesterday:

1. laundry
2. took Emileigh to get her glasses fitted
3. took the boys to get haircuts
4. finally posted a new blog!

4 Things I look forward too:

1. Thanksgiving and Christmas
2. running another race in January (what's wrong with me...?)
3. seeing my parents and family after Christmas and meeting my new neice and nephew
4. conference in April and seeing Craig's parents then

4 things on my wish list:

1. photoshop elements 7.0
2. new paint and new window treatments for the family room
3. children who are happy to do the dishes when asked
4. more time to spend with my family

4 people I tag are: (and I'm sorry if you've been tagged a million times before)

1. Julie
2. Jenny
3. Louise
4. Joe and Lindsey

who would have thought?

This was taken in Boise outside a Pizza Hut. Wow, dogs must be smarter in Idaho.

wow, a new post!

It's about time that I finally posted again. Here's a recap of the happenings here during the last month:
WWF at our house on Sunday afternoons.

camping in the backyard with Dad during fall break

Lauren's birthday. She wanted a cake with green frosting and lots of High School Musical 3 stuff.

Halloween...thank you Bekki for helping them look their scariest.

Me and my sisters running the Zeitgeist we're in really good shape!

Okay, here we really are. See how happy I am to be almost done.

Birthday Girl

Happy birthday to our little Siri. She turned one year old on October 3rd. I think her favorite part of the day was the cake. She didn't know what to do with her little cake at first,

but once she got a taste of it, there was no stopping her.

She enjoyed every bite (that made it into her mouth).

Why is it that one piece of cake all crumbled up on the ground ends up looking like it could be put back together to make four or five pieces. By the time she finished eating I swear there was more cake on the ground than we actually gave her to eat. Despite the mess, it was so fun to watch her discover the joy of eating cake. ...Oh to be able to enjoy desserts like a baby, with no thought of how much tighter the waistband of my jeans will be tomorrow. Sigh...

One of the many Brian Regan clips that make me laugh.
