More lake fun!

Some boys never grow up...

Our 3 Munchkins

Tuesday, August 14, 2007


My newest hobby is making felt food. Luke thinks this is hilarious, and great all at the same time. For me, it's a little creative outlet that I can do at night when the kids are in bed. I get the satisfaction of completing a project or two a night, and it's relaxing to me. I love the process of not using patterns, just picking up some scissors and going to town. So here are my masterpieces...

What you are seeing: cantaloupe, s'more, marshmellow, cupcake, donut, carrot, strawberry, pancakes, tomato, & egg. The bacon is MIA.
Next on my list are ice cream cones, peas (in a pod), & watermelon slices. Stay tuned... :)
(Now this is a reason to bookmark this blog if you haven't already)!

Twaine Hart & Murphys

We spent the weekend in Twain Hart with Luke's family at their cabin. It was a good time for the cousins to play. Pinecrest Lake was beautiful as usual, and the kiddos enjoyed a round of Pee Wee golf. Luke and I took a drive to Murphys on Friday the 10th as it was our 11 year anniversary. 11 years and 3 I feel old...

In Murphys we saw this truck parked on Main St so we had to take a picture of Zeke with it...

Our Handsome Boy...

Dane Luke - 3 years old.

Dane will be starting school this fall at Shining Light Preschool. He will be going two mornings a week. He is oh-so excited. Whenever we drove past the school Dane used to proclaim "there's sissy's school!" Now, he shouts "there's MY school!"
I think he will enjoy it, and since Dane has only one volume (loud) I will enjoy the 5 hours a week of relative quiet. :)

more Zeke

He will be 6 weeks old tomorrow...actually at 1:22 am tonight. He's just started to really try and lift his head up. And look at those eyes! He definitely has Taylor eyes. But I think I may end up with another blonde boy yet!

This is the most alert he has looked so far ....

Just because he's so cute

Posting this just because he's too cute to not share :)

Lake Video

Well this is my first attempt at a video.
Not sure why the quality is so bad, but I'll be working on it.

Fun at the Lake

We spent our first weekend at our new housboat on Lake Berryessa. It was good to be back on the water. The kids LOVE LOVE LOVE it. We bought this new boat with our good friends The Kings, and Luke and Brian have spent soooooooo much time fixing it (it aint even funny). But the results are great, and we have the space for our growing family. We will hopefully even use the boat year round now. Here are some pictures from the weekend...

Unchartered Waters...

Today I entered a land where no 5-week postpartum mom should ever go...............

That's right, the bathing suit department. It was frightening to say the least. The list of "must-haves" was so long I thought I would never accomplish the task at hand.

A looooong tankini so no midriff could show, and loose enough to not hug my "curves". Enough support so that the "girls" are above what used to be my belly-button (now it's just a stretched out mass of circular wrinkles.) And a skirt. Yes, I said a SKIRT. I have officially reached the point in my life where I need a skirt on my bathing suit.

If you thought dressing room mirrors were bad before, just try them out a few weeks after carrying around a 40lb beach ball in your belly.

So I came home with a couple suits that *almost* met all the criteria. I went to one store and one store only. That's all my psyche could handle.

If you thought I was going to post pictures like I usually do, you were so WRONG. :)
