Dazed and confused

So i found out that sleeping in a bus seat amongst 50+ high schoolers and a bus driver that apparently likes HEAT is virtually impossible. Bummer. Just stopped at a local (somewhere in CO) Burger King for breakfast. I fell nice and greasy for the 6 hour drive we have left...lovely!

Rise and Shine and give God the GLORY GLORY!!!!


The Great Colorado Adventure

So i'm sitting on a bus with about 50 high school students from our church headed for the beautiful state of Colorado. I think the last time I was in CO was in 2001 for college. I attended Colorado State and Kenny went to the U of Northern Colorado. Kenny wanted to go back to MN and apparently I loved him enough to follow him. (Looks like it worked out in the end though!!)

So anyways...we're on the bus. Someone just put in the movie Oceans 11, the leader sitting next to me is listening to her ipod really loud, the 10 guys closest to me are arguing about something definitely not important, and I am going to attempt to sleep for a while in my 2 square feet of space!! I love this!! Hoping to get a few hours of sleep and thinking about my kiddos back home...

My bags are packed...

and I'm ready to go!


Newborn Photo Shoot!

Today I got to visit with my friend Allison and her new baby girl she delivered earlier this morning!! Here are some of my favorite shots of Magdalyn...


Backlog Post 1

I figured I would start with the biggest change in our life these past few months...our sweet baby boy! Graham is almost 4 months old already and has taken us on many new baby adventures. We discovered (with the help of a very special nurse!) that Graham's body can't handle dairy and that's why he had colic so bad. We switched his formula to Soy and I have stopped eating dairy, absolute torture!!! But totally worth it, cause we have an amazingly happy baby back!


Hi Blog...remember me?!

So I have this annoying habit some people like to call procrastination. I think that's just a pretty word for LAZY! I would like to blame my 2 month blogging hiatus on my newborn (and therefore LACK OF SLEEP), but that would be a lie. I think I actually have some kind of "completion anxiety". If I can't fully complete something I'm working on, I somehow decide it's not worth doing at all. Prime example...I hand wrote over 250 thank you notes after our wedding (why do only the wives have to do that by the way???) the week we got back from our honeymoon (that's a whole-nother blog post!!!). I had about 50 left...which of course I never got I decided it would be best just not to send ANY. That's right, completely pathetic. I have no excuses. I never sent our wedding thank you's. So, for anyone out there reading our blog that also went to our wedding and perhaps gave us a wedding present, THANK YOU from the bottom of my "completion anxiety" heart. So that's what I think has happened here again, I had another "completion anxiety" episode after I didn't blog for a week and decided it would be best just not to blog until I could sit down and blog every event of our crazy busy life that had happened. Well that was dumb! Of course, being a mom to 3 very small children (one is a newborn...remember, no sleep!) and deciding it would be a good idea to fill our calendar with at least 5 events each day, that great blogging day never came! Who woulda guessed??

So here I am, 2 months later. And I have SOOOO much to blog about!! My plan is to take this backlog one day at a time and blog about a few fun events we've had over the next few days. (Who am I kidding, this will probably take me longer than a few days)

By the way, blogging is WAY harder than it looks! But totally worth it :)
