Kurtis went as a Power Ranger and Sean was a bat. They both looked so cute.

Puddle Jumping

One of the few rains we got this year yielded some great puddles for Kurtis to play in. He had a great time splashing and getting soaked.

I've been tagged!

I've been tagged. The rules are that you list 6 facts/habits about yourself then at the end of the post name 6 people that you are going to tag. Then you go into their comments and tell them that they have been tagged.

1. I LOVE scrapbooking! I do it whenever I get the chance. It is a more creative way for me to write our family history.

2. I am writing a cookbook that I am hoping will get published. I cannot eat sugar and refuse to give up sweets. So I am coming up with recipes that use alternative sugars like agave nectar, date sugar, and pure maple syrup.

3. I have started training to get in shape to run a marathon next year. I am hoping to find a partner who would run the New York Marathon with me next October.

4. I have a bachelor's degree in music education with an emphasis in choral music and I now work as a substitute teacher and private voice teacher.

5. My husband asked me to marry him the day after he got home from his mission, much to my mother's dismay.

6. I love food! Never get between me and what I am eating or you might lose some fingers. I'll share occasionally, but my food is very important to me.

I think that is it, so I tag:

Kara Ballenger
Amber Robbins
Allison Browning
Rachel Wattson

I don't know enough people with blogs yet so I only tag 4 people. I can't tag Brooke because she tagged me.

Some family pictures

Here are some pictures that were taken about 6 weeks after Sean was born. I know they are not that current, but I love them anyway. Here are a few of my favorites.

Are you happy now?!

I finally caved in! A few people had been bugging me, mainly Brooke Baker :), to get a blog so they could post comments and have more access to my pics and such. Even though I had already established a website, I decided to give blogging a try to see if I like it better. So, I ask you, are you happy now?! I hope so! :) I will do my best to post pictures and blips about what is going on in our lives. I love reading all of yours, so hopefully you will enjoy reading ours.
