Caden's First Art Project



The other day Caden was sitting on my lap while Jocelyn and I were playing a game. In the game we were drawing pictures and Caden kept reaching for the pen. So-- we got him another one that was soft and made sure that the pen tip was not up. Anyway he was chewing on it and playing with it the whole game. We finished the game and I look down at him and somehow he had twisted the t0p and had managed to draw all over his face and legs. What a silly boy- I am sure he just kept trying to get it in his mouth and managed to get it on him in the process. It could have been worse and I am sure it is not the last time this will happen. What a cute little budding artist.

Happy Anniversary


I can't believe we have been married for 9 years. I had to go back a few years to even find a picture of us with both of us and no other children in it. We don't have any wedding pictures on our computer either. oh well. This was Hawaii with the Maxfield's in 2004. ( Great trip by the way.) Jeff is the most amazing husband and father. I am so glad I found him. I love you Jeff-


Happy Anniversary.

Minnesota Zoo

Jolene, Hannah and Caleb Reed with Jocey and Ellie
My " Little Piggies"

this is a tractor tire at the transportation fair. it is really fun they bring in all sorts of vehicles from 4 wheelers, hot air balloons, police cars, garbage trucks, school bus, cranes etc. and let the kids sit in the driver seats and honk the horns and stuff! They love it!

We had so much fun at the Transportation Fair last weekend and the Minnesota Zoo this weekend. We love that we can actually be outside now! Here are some pictures of the girls with the Reed's. They are such great friends. We have a lot of fun with them and are going to miss them a lot when they move next week. At Least we know they will be coming back in a year. Sorry Caden did not make any of the pictures because he is on the front pack on both events.

Twins Game

The Boys loving the baseball game! Go Minnesota Twins!
Ellie and Jocelyn watching and playing with their friend Hannah Reed.
Jeff had an orthopedic conference in Minneapolis this weekend. So we went up there stayed in a hotel, swam and went to a Twins game. It was a great mini trip. The kids loved being in a hotel. Ellie wanted to stay there forever and not go to our house.
This is Jocelyn and her friend Caleb Reed at the Circus earlier in the week. They loved watching the acrobats and animals doing some pretty amazing things!
