Just stuff

Look at my muscles. I am so strong!You want us to do what??????Isaiah, could I borrow some of your hair products? My hair is out of control!I'm exhausted now that this kid won't stop chasing me around the house.
And, this is what happens when you mix a busy crawling little boy and a very tired dog.
(ps the 2nd one is definitely my favorite)

Looking good in Green. . .

We hope you are wearing your green!
And, Zeke is soon to be appearing in many different colors too since he has decided that pulling himself up to stand is the way to be. I'm sure I will be posting pics soon of Zeke in black and blue while we are practicing all of our new tricks!
Stay tuned!

We have a winner

A Snowy Update:
During the Annual Fergus Falls Frostbite Festival, they have snow sculpture contest. This year, we registered our front yard. With the help of Ashley, Kari, Toby, and David, Danny created amazing tunnels, paths, forts, a fox, and a snowman.

They titled it Fox and Geese. See the link below from a previous post to see the amazing tunnel and one of the forts.


Well, we won. We got first place in the most creative category and second place overall.

We celebrated with our $10 Fergus bucks and $10 gift card to Casey's Gas station by buying pizza and a special snack when they spent the weekend with us.

We also had some fun creating amazing creations with our french toast and whipped cream. . . . maybe even too much fun. :)
Here we all heading to church. I had to document my first time getting 5 "kids" ready for church by 9:30 in the morning.
Oh yeah, we even got to borrow their parent's mini-van. I totally felt like a grown-up.

Happy 14th Birthday today Ashley! We love you!

So, I cried. . .

For those of you that know me well, you know I cry easily. It happens when I'm sad, but also when I'm super happy. It is like my heart is so happy that is erupts and makes me cry.
ET still causes me to cry to the point of hyperventilating. I might have a headache for at least a day after reading Where the Red Fern Grows. And, when volunteering with Special Olympics for basketball, I've had to stop the game in order to compose myself after a magical moment with one of my athletes. And, that has definitely happened more than once. Don't even get me started on Hallmark commercials.
Well, Zeke got me going yesterday.
Here is why:

My baby is growing up, and I'm not quite sure I am ready for it. :)

Friends at Broen

Zeke and I had the chance to hang out with some of my coworkers from my previous job as an OT at a nursing home here in Fergus. We had our babies within one month of each other. It was fun to see how much our kids have changed and make some old people smile.
