Picnic with Princess Tianna

Nothing's better than a picnic with Princess Tianna.  I would say that Nora's favorite princess is Tianna.

Wine Tasting

My neighbors and I bought a groupon and a livingsocial coupon for a few vineyards by our house.  We had a blast wine tasting and having some girl time.  The wine was OK, but the conversations were great!

Visit from Uncle Tanner

Jackson loves his uncle tanner

My brother flew up from Florida for a food show in St. Cloud so it was fun to see him.  Nora and him even sat on the SAME side of the bench at lunch....big step for Nora!

Finally Mommy is OFF the dance stage

Yep, the 3rd dance class and I finally was able to get off the stage.  Nora stood on stage all by herself--she did NOT move or dance at all but she was on stage by herself.  Guess what, we will not be signing her up for the next session!!!


Jackson is all about throwing up cups, hence we reverted back to sippy cups!

painting but needed to take a break to drink!

Professional photos

I love these!  Jess Croshaw Photography did a great job.....and she was ok with our somewhat whiney children.  She was the best and totally captured our families personality!  I would totally recommend her!!!

Great Grandma Nora's 91st Birthday

My grandma had her 91st birthday on the 11th of September.  We celebrated her big day this weekend.  The kids LOVE going to the farm and having FREEDOM....I love that I can just let them go outside and not worry about a busy street or bad people.  They love to be outside and playing in the rocks and on the tractors and with the kitties and Lucy. 

yep this is my 'inattentive husband' allowing our son to drink (an empty beer bottle!!)

Birthday Girl, grandma Debbie and Nora!

Nora's 1st Day of Dance

I signed Nora up for a dance class.  I want her to not be so attached to me and to get to know others.  She seems all pumped up in the videos above.  Yeah, dance class equaled me holding Nora (& Jackson) and having Addie, the little girl I do daycare for, in a stroller.  It was quite exhausting, yet I know Nora will love it....maybe just some time and she will be on the dance stage all by herself!

The START to my day

Yep that is cake batter on the floor.  Jackson has been a bit (ok ALOT) of a pill lately!  He cries ALL the time, whines for everything, and carries his blanket and nuk all over the house.  Well, this morning I was trying to make a birthday cake for Landrey and he pulled the bowl off the counter splattering uncooked cake all over the kitchen floor!  It has to go up from here!!!

Watching Landrey


Eating bubble wand?  icky!

Wagonride to the park

Watching a movie-J seems to be blasting off!!

We watched Landrey for a day.  Nora was so very excited about it.  Landrey was a bit apprehensive but had fun!  We played at the park, we watched princess movies, we had a blast!
