Oh, what to do on a Saturday?

Free time, anyone?

My brother-in-law Jason built this stunning cardboard robot for his son, Griffin.

It's a true work of art.

Getting To Know You

So I'm super excited about the new season of "The Office."

You feel me?

What show are you loving right now?

Here Comes Fall

I'm such a fan of changing seasons. God really knew what He was doing when he created all four of 'em. Just when I'm starting to grow tired of one, we ease into another. And I think it's one of the reasons I love the Pacific Northwest so much, because we really get EACH season. Right now, I'm loving these brisk days with sweaters and leaves and soccer games.

Olivia likes the soccer games, too. Here she is all bundled up in polar fleece watching Uncle Andrew play in his High School Varsity game. She gets to stay all cozy even when it's chilly. She says Uncle Andrew is the best soccer player she's ever seen. I told her he's a close second to one Mr. David Beckham.


So Sunday is the first official day of Autumn! Before you know it, you'll be on a bumpy hayride, balancing a gallon of cider, the remains of a powdered doughnut, and a baby who's trying to put hay in her mouth. (source: Parenting Magazine.)

I climb. I crawl. I'm everywhere.

Hi, it's me, Olivia.

In the past week, I learned to crawl and pull myself up. Yeah, I'm awesome.

I still don't sleep through the night.

Ok, not so awesome.

Pass the Purel

I'm on the Dayquil.


It's working well.


Watch out for my germs.

Turn it up!

I turn up the music and I hear my Mama.

I opened my email this morning and found this:


I was just looking at the calendar and noticed National Grandparents Day is fast approaching. This email is to inform you that I am already registered at the following stores for the following items:

Home Depot - Any power tools that don’t bite back during operator error
Boaters World - Possible floatation devices for glasses, hearing aids and hats
Frys Electronics - See if they have a high tech movie camera for a low tech mind

If anything else comes to mind please do not hesitate to call at your earliest convenience.

Kevin (My Step Dad)

What a nut. This email made me laugh out loud. I guess I need to go get him something now! :-) National Grandparents Day is Sunday, Sept. 9th.
