the last few days...

There are a lot of pictures in this blog, but hey... that's why you come here, right? :o)
We got out the ball popper the other day (it's a loud and sort of obnoxious toy, so we don't get it out too often) and I thought Luke would love it. He liked it, but I think EmJ had the most fun playing with it!

Luke decided it'd be more fun to take off his socks and chew on them... weird!

A typical kid thing - Luke would rather play with random "non-toy" stuff than his toys... silly boy!

I'm sure you've heard about the crazy weather in Colorado in the spring... here's EmJ playing in the snow the other day.

I know it's kind of hard to see, but I had to include this picture. While EmJ and I were outside playing in the snow, Luke and Daddy were inside. EmJ was throwing snow at the window and Luke was cracking up! So cute!

Miss EmJ just laughing and enjoying the snow

Gotta catch some snowflakes on your tongue!

Playing with clay (or as EmJ kept calling it, "clay-dough")


Making a birthday cake - complete with candles (that even have flames! awesome!)

And her masterpiece :o)

EmJ thought this was hilarious - Luke was playing with her toes!


This picture cracks me up... I'm not sure why EmJ's making this face, but I think it's hilarious!

EmJ and Luke

I love these two.

March Madness!!!

If you know us at all, you know we love March Madness around here! Yesterday was the first day and KU played, so naturally we were all decked out in our KU gear. I thought I should take some pictures of the kids... I didn't get the pictures I "wanted" to (the one above is the best one of the 2 of them together), but I sure got some fun ones! :o)

Apparently something was super funny...


Luke thought something was funny too...

Psst... there's another new blog below this one!

Luke's 7 months pictures!

Can you believe Luke is 7 months old?

I sure can't! :o)

But I can believe that he's super-duper cute!

Luke's been teething the last couple of days (today is much better... thank goodness!) - he's normally a drooler, but lately... WOW! Check that out! :o) Ha!
(and don't worry... I changed his shirt right after I took some pictures!)

Just out on a walk the other day... I love watching these two interact- so stinkin' cute!

Angelina Ballerina... and some other fun stuff

EmJ has a great love for Angelina Ballerina right now... we have lots of the books because EmJ's cousin, Janae, was a big fan of Angelina too... we have a card game, and we have a board game too (thanks, Janae!). I am not exaggerating when I say that EmJ and I play the card game and/or board game multiple times a day. EmJ's favorite thing is when Daddy is home and he can play with us too. The best part is that when you play the board game, you get to do some actual ballerina moves... awesome! :o) Here are some pictures from the other day when we played:

Moving around the board (it all depends on the roll of the dice, but EmJ almost always wins... weird!)

EmJ's "relevè"

Moving to the middle to do her "recital" - basically, she won ;)

Pretty sure this is a "sissonne"
(not quite the right form, but whatev!)



Luke just reading some books

I love the grin underneath the bink! Too cute!

The other morning EmJ told Jeff she was cold, so he put his shirt on her. HA! She kept calling it her dress because, well, look at it!

I gave EmJ a pedicure the other morning :o)

Gorgeous, darling!

Luke has moved to a big boy car seat! :o)
Luke is now 7 months old (I know, right?!)... I'll take his 7 month pictures and post them soon!

a few pictures...

I asked EmJ to smile for me and she grabbed this mirror toy and smiled into it instead... goober!

EmJ asked me to take a picture of "this silly face"... and I also loved her explanation of her feet being on the chair: "Oh, mom, my feet just needed a little rest."

Playing outside a little! Woo-hoo!

EmJ is just as excited as I am that it's warm enough to go outside!

Wonder if this tastes good?
(Just kidding - I didn't really let him eat it!) :o)

Love this smile!

And this one too!

a great day for a walk!

Let's go for a walk...

It is GORGEOUS here today... look at that awesome blue sky and the mountains in the back. I love Colorado days like this! :o)

EmJ wanted to hide... this was the best she could find :o)

Workin' on her "hops"

I love this picture - it looks like Luke took a self portrait... haha!

The Stick
(a companion on the walk)

Since EmJ was barely walking Jeff would bring here to this spot and tell her it is the only place she's allowed to throw rocks - into the drain - so, we come here pretty much every time we take a walk. EmJ still gets excited about it!

Stinkin' cute EmJ

Stinkin' cute Luke

"There's our house!"

...and we're back! Thanks for going on a walk with us! :o)
