New Life

This is not Joseph Smith as my Mom kept calling him but tis my liege lord and husband Sir Robert Charles. He was gracious enough to take me to a Regency Romance Ball put on by a really cool club in Salt Lake City. It was an adventure.
This is me at around 10 months. I am sitting by my Juju (my Dad's Mother) in a park in Elk Grove CA.
This is me all dolled up 24 and a half years later
This is my Wonderful Husband who likes me for me.

It has been forever since I last posted. I am not even going to apologize because I have no excuse and I am sure it will happen again! ok ok I am sorry. My guilt complex is very well developed- Thanks, Mom!
I really do wish to be a cool blogger but I have ended up just doing picture dumps and while I think my children are the most beautiful and wonderful things ever(as every mother should) I also have thoughts that don't revolve around them... ummm...I think.
I have done so much since last November I don't even know where to begin. Hmmm I started College again, we moved (again)... so maybe I haven't done as much as I was thinking but just these two things sure feel like a lot! What I have learned so far is that I really hate moving and Math!!
I do still need to add pictures so that if every memory card or file blows up I will have some things saved on here.

I feel like I might not have posted this one of Leo at the hospital but even if I have its so cute that I am doing it anyway! The picture with Michaela is one of a few where Leo is either kissing her or letting her hug him.

Pictures from my phone :)

These are pictures I took with my phone. I finally got them onto the computer so that we can all enjoy them! I do Facebook some of them but they look better here :).
The first one of Michaela and the one of Leo in the stroller are two of my favorite pictures ever.
We have had a fairly crazy year in a very crazy run of years but Leo is 1 now!!! And I will be posting pictures of that later today.

Broken Camera

My Camera is broken! As if I didn't have enough excuses not to keep current on my blog! Leo's life is not going to be documented!
I went to the camera store but they were like nope we can't help you but here's the name of the guy who we send our cameras to. Then the girl told me that the problem looks like it will cost about 100$ to fix.
So if anyone knows about cameras mine is a fuji and when I turn it on it says "zoom error" and I have tried resetting everything and it still says it.... so sad.

March 2010

During March Michaela and I were very busy but we still made time for dress up and modeling!

This is a slice of pizza Michaela half ate. At first when I saw that she hadn't finished her lunch I was like "Michaela, get back here and eat your lunch!" but then I looked at it and saw that she had eaten it into the shape of a heart! I thought it was genius.

My Beautiful Michaela

A few weeks ago I took two big quilts to the laundromat and had to cut short the drying time so that I could get Rob to work on time. When I got them home I decided I wanted to dry them out in the beautiful sunshine we were having that day.
I took four chairs out in the front yard and then draped the quilts over them and stood back to look at my handiwork and realized... I had made a fort! Michaela,Leo and I along with Corinne spent about three hours in that thing and it was so much fun. I think I felt 20 years younger :)

Isn't she gorgeous!?

Leo in Cali

This first picture is of Leo with my cousin Matthew who just got home from a mission to Argentina. Leo just sat next to him and stared up at him for a few minutes then gave him his best smile. I think Leo is already planning on his mission because all the recently returned that he has met he has been very impressed with. Matthew is super sweet though so that could also be the reason that Leo liked him so much.
Leo chillin' with Uncle Justin and his cuz Milo... Yes Leo is the drooly one!
This face is so cute. Kinda unsure but he is still going to smile.
Grandad always gets Leo going!

More from my trip to California

This first Picture is of all my parents grandkids. Leo is totally hamming it up. He is such a happy, friendly baby.
The morning of Memorial Day we stopped at Papa's grave. His cemetery is so beautiful and peaceful.... Except when school is in session (an elementary is on the west side of it).
These Roses are growing next to Juju's house. I was caught by the way the morning light was passing through the petals of the white and pink rose and then the red orange ones are just so beautiful that I had to take pictures. Juju is my Dad's Mom and she is so sweet. I think she misses having us as little kids. We were the family that always came to visit (not that my other cousins didn't visit we just out numbered them all in one family :). I really miss Papa. Its been 7 years since he died and I really think he had so much more to tell us about life and all the cool things he did and knew. He was a good teacher- he taught us about weapons like the boomerang and the Atl Atl as well as the bow and the sling shot.

Memorial Day

Isn't Leo so handsome? He is growing like a weed and I can put him down and he sits by himself very well. His doctor says he "is as solid as a rock". He has been sick a lot this past month but he is better now... Almost.
On memorial day I was in California and we were able to go to Papa's grave. This is a picture of the tree that shades him. It was a beautiful day and I like to think it was for Papa who was a wonderful person.
This is a Four Generation picture with Juju! I am so glad my mom had that idea. While I was out in Cali I did not get one picture of Leo with Grammy (which I regret very much) but at least Juju got some.

Model Children

This is Leo and Michaela playing together! Michaela is so cute with him and really loves him. I think he loves her too because he looks around for her when she is not right in front of him. That may or may not be love- it may just be Leo protecting himself from sneak attacks. He is really smart like that.

Isn't this such a cute brother sister picture!!! My mom has one of Brady holding me when I was a newborn and he is kissing me and that is pretty darn cute but this is like model babies cute! LOL Am I bragging? Sorry but they are that adorable
