Picture Spring Photo Contest 2010

One of the most regular blogs that I follow is having a photo contest, and since I've been SOOOO wanting to take a photography class, and thoroughly enjoy playing around with my camera, I decided I should enter - just for the fun of it! Here is a link to the details.

Here are the three photos I'm entering:

Natalie's Sentiments Giveaway

You know those decals you see on every car these days? The little "family" people? Sure they're cute, but everyone has them! I've been thinking lately that I'd like to have some, but they would have to be different somehow.
Well, I found them! Check out these Skull Family decals from The Lucky Labs that Natalie is giving away! I totally want them!!

Valentines Day 2010

Just a quiet evening in as a family. Brian cooked up some chicken breasts and crab legs. The kids thought they were pretty cool, but didn't really care to eat them! lol

STARZ Dress Rehearsal

Always a fun day for the girls, when they get to put their costumes and full makeup on and DANCE!!

Baby Shower Cake for Casey

My friend, Casey, was having her first baby, and I was asked to make the cake for her shower. I had a lot more fun with this cake, and being my second cake, think it turned out pretty well. I also made some matching cookie-pops which were quite yummy!

The Newest Member of our Family

While Brian was off work for his knee injury, he conjured up this idea that we needed a puppy. Not quite sure why, but he convinced me to go LOOK, and of course we found a sweet little girl that we all fell in love with. We managed to leave the store without her that night, but Brian ended up going back the next day to get her.

Her name is Bella. She is a Boxedor (boxer/lab) and was born on October 28th, 2009. She's a very mellow dog, and so sweet. Great with the kids, and loves water. She'll be a great camping and boating dog. =)

Look at those teeth!! lol...

New Years Eve 2009

It is a tradition to go up to the Nelson property for New Years and go sledding all night. We were a little worried this year, as snow levels were significantly low. New Years Eve morning was bare, but as the afternoon rolled around, it gradually began to snow. and it snowed, and snowed, and snowed.... It was perfect! The next morning, it all melted away.
