My Sister Got a New Camera

She took some cute little pics of my funny little boy-his hair cracks me up! I don't want to cut it, the shag look is in right?

Purrs Like A Kitten

My mom finally did it! She has been wanting one since I can remember. She bought her Jag! She is so excited, I love to see how happy it makes her to be able to have one of her dreams come true. Congrats mom! She sure is pretty.

Chad's Big News

Well for those of you who don't know-Chad got a new job and we are so excited about it! He is now the Oregon Pharmaceutical Rep for a new company called BioForce. They make a product called MYOMED. It is only available from Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and Massage Therapists. It's a great product and there is nothing else out there quite like it-it's endorsed by professional athletes like Tom Brady, LaDainian Tomlinson and Willie McGinest who have been using it for the past 2 years. It is just now being marketed to the public through health care professionals. If you want to know more, click on this link-
Do you think there may have been a reason that we just happened to move into an area where all of our friends are chiropractic students? I think there may have been a greater plan there! We are so excited!

The Tulip Festival

Chad was still on his business trip on Saturday and since it was the last day of the festival-I decided rain or shine we were going. Well there was no shine-that's for sure! I thought the kids would get sick of it real quick-but they LOVED it! They were splashing in mud puddles, picking up handfuls of mud and wiping it on me-we all looked like we had been mud wrestling by the time we left. The tulips were beautiful-and I can't wait to go again-maybe next year we won't wait till the last day and actually go when it's warm out!

Gone to the Birds

Finally! Larakeet Landing was open today when we went to the zoo. The kids had so much fun feeding the birds juice and watching the Larakeets fly over head. We also saw the penguins today, which I don't think we have ever seen at this zoo-I don't know why! Bekah loved them! She has been carrying around this toy lizard lately that my boss gave her-and one of the penguins kept swimming up to the glass and trying to eat it. It was very funny, although a little sad for the penguin! Hugs to all of you!

I Miss my Honey!

I know that my sister's husband is in the Navy and that my friend Matt is off in the Air Force and that they are gone for so very long away from their wives and families, so I will try not to complain and keep smiling, because my favorite guy is only gone for the weekend.
He is in Utah for some training for a new job-(details to come shortly, but they are some good and juicy details!), and to see Ryeleigh for her birthday today! (Happy Birthday big 8 year old!) I miss you honey and so do Bekah and Topher-learn lots and we'll leave the light on for you!

The Battle Wagon

Oh Wow! Chad inherited this jeep from a friend of my moms.
I know she's pretty, but keep your hands off, she's not for sale!
Yes-We once again own a junker. I thought we would avoid this passion for junk that Chad holds so close to his heart while we lived out here-but because he loves it and because the law of attraction works so well-we now have this lovely thing parked in our driveway. I don't have much to say about it, except Whatever!

(Actually, it will be nice for him to have a little hobby that he can spend money on, then it won't be such a big deal when I spend a couple hundred at a scrapbook store! : ))

Wow I wish I had a better scanner! This does not do this page justice! It is so bright and fun. You can't read the writing on the photo, but it says "love this girl". I really do! She is so stinkin cute!

Meeting My Great Grandma

This is a page I just finished. It's a sweet photo of Christopher and his Great Grandma on the day they met. I hope he gets many more opportunities to spend time with this sweet lady.

That Wascally Wabbit

Bekah, while appreciative of the gifts that the Easter Bunny left her in her basket is still trying to make sense of what that Bunny is all about. She cannot figure out why a rabbit would come in the middle of the night, take the colored eggs out of our fridge and hide them all over the house. Don't get me wrong, she loved hunting for them, she just is wondering why he would do that! Easter was great fun-the kids loved looking through their baskets, and of course at Grandmas, the bunny came there too-with even bigger and more gifts for these two picked on little kids! My favorite part as always was Easter Dinner! Ham, asparagus, cheesy potatoes, rolls and of course deviled eggs....Sigh, I am still full! Hope everyone else had a great Easter too!

Making the Little Eggs Pretty

This is one commercial Easter tradition that we Love! We all love getting our hands dirty and watching the pretty colors that the eggs change when we pull them out. This was Tophers first time, and we ended up with some cracked eggs, a more colorful kitchen table, not to mention a more colorful baby-but a very happy baby, and isn't that what life is all about?
Hope you all have a very Happy Easter!
Hugs-Chad, Tiff and the kids

Simply Beautiful

I know that I am biast-but I think that I have one of the prettiest little girls-she is simply beautiful. Even her grumpy looks-I cannot get over those blue eyes and her perfect little features. I think she is stunning- if that is just my opinion-there it is.

Little Trouble Maker

These are just some funny little pictures of Christopher doing what he does best! Makin trouble and being cute doing it! He got into Scott and Suzannas pantry and pulled out a box of cereal when no one was looking. He thought he was very funny! (He was!)

We Love Spring!

I took these pictures of my kids by my mom's house a few weeks ago and am just getting to blogging them-there were just too many to pick from! Plus my mom took hundreds too, and I don't even have them on my computer yet. My kids are just so stinkin cute! Bekah was all clean and pretty for all of about 5 minutes-then she started playing in the mud-Christopher was so occupied in running up and down the sidewalk, that I had a hard time getting him to look at the camera-but these are just some of the shots that I love!
