I took quite a few pictures over the last week or so, but have only been able to edit a few here and there…

But I still wanted to share them with you!


This is my cousin Stacy's Gift #1.  We went to the Rainforest Cafe for lunch at the MOA (Mall of America for you non-native Minnesotan's) Pretty darn cute huh?


I loved both of the expressons on my guys' faces here… Gift #1 seems so content… but more imprtant… he seems still.  Even if it was just for a moment!


And here is Gift #2 petting Jeager, our 7 year old doggy.  And I think they were actually having a conversation… one which Gift #2 seemed to think Jeager was listening very intently too.


I have to post the picture any time Gift #1 actually looks at the camera.  I have more profile shots then I know what to do with!


I.  Cannot.  Resist.  This.  Face.

Many blessings to you and yours!


P.S. Is it me or is my baby starting to actually look more like a baby???  That whole 'tadpole' phase could not be over soon enough for me!

Share with your friends!

  1. Cute pics…they both have beautiful eyes!
    I am totally jealous that you live close enough to go to that mall : ( LOL…seriously, I would love to see it one day. And go to the Rainforest Cafe because my sister said it was as much fun for her to go there as it was for her kids.
    Thanks for sharing the pics-all cute, cute kids : )

  2. Thanks for putting my gift #1 in there. I love that picture. I had a lot of fun with you guys at lunch. It was just to bad my gift #2 wasn’t happy. We will have to do it again soon.

  3. I love the second pic! Is that a matchbox in your son’s hand? Gotta love the stage when a boy can’t go anywhere without a car clutched in the hand. Sure beats a pacifier, eh!!

  4. You take amazing pictures! Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, I am a Mormon(or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints), I’ve talked about it more in earlier posts. Thanks for asking and I look forward to reading your blog in the future. 🙂
