Tara & Trent Tie the Knot!

Sorry for being a bad blogger this past week. I guess it was a busy week.

My Niece Tara got married on St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) to Trent was a perfect day for a beautiful wedding. The ceremony was held at the
Brooks Hill Church up on Skyline. The reception was held at the "Octogonal Barn" at the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. Such a cool place!!

Malia was a flower girl in the wedding and did a great job! After the rehearsal (which I made the mistake of waving at her, then winking at her...which she then did during the entire rehearsal) I had to talk to her about not winking or waving during the wedding.......and luckily it worked! There was no winking or waving during the ceremony. What I did NOT talk about was "thumbs up" which she ended up doing down the aisle and I think on the way back. Maybe even a couple of times during the ceremony. I think I have blocked it out...or was too busy wrestling Alex, who didn't want to sit still (but he's only 1, so we cut him some slack).

It was a beautiful wedding.......Tara & Trent honeymooned in Hawaii and flew back home to Alaska today. We are anxiously awaiting there move down closer to "home".

Here are a few pictures. I might post more later. I took a ton!

Happy 1st Birthday Alex!

WOW! I can't believe how fast time flies. It's already been a year. Alex is now walking pretty good....and is still fairly mellow and patient. Hopefully that will NOT change. :) Here is a picture from 1 year ago, and one from now. We woke up and made Birthday Cupcakes for Alex!!!!!!!!!! Of course Malia helped and thought he would like pink frosting. ;) We made a few pink then moved on to the other colors. Have a great day!
p.s. HAPPY BIRTHDAY To Guy & Gayle who are also celebrating birthdays today! Woo-Hoo!

Rub-a Dub-Dub

Hello All (if anyone is out there)......just thought I'd share a cute picture of Alex & Malia in the big tub. Alex is loving taking baths in it......except for the jets. We tried that once and it scared the p@@p out of him! HOpefully he'll like them soon because we find that makes the bubbles **HUGE** and fun. Malia also likes having some company in the tub. She loves having a brother and will randomly just say "I'm so happy to have a baby brother." (awwwwwww). :)

Love This Mirror!

Okay, I have found it. I know you were on the edge of your seat hoping I would post a picture of the mirror I mentioned in my last post. I love how this mirror looks painted turquoise. It was gold and fairly ornate.......pretty cool now. What do you think? Maybe not for the main room in the house, but really cool in a craft room or something. :O)

Cool Craft Stuff

I just had to share a couple of neat things I have run across online. The first is this cool craft space with the neat turquoise table in the center. I wish I had the picture of the really awesome *huge* mirror that was painted kind of like the table. Next.......this little fabric covered scrapbook is super cute. How do people come up with these things???
It makes me want to do something cRaFtY!!!

Just a Picture

This is a sample of what all the recent attempts to get a good picture of Malia and Alex (together) looks like.
:O) Nice!!

Playing Princess & Queen of the Swans

It's been awhile since I have posted......due to a very unpleasant stomach flu that seemed to last forever......and a change in this "blogger" that I didn't have the patience to figure out! I am. Here are a couple of pictures from a few weeks ago when we went to my friend Cindy's house to play & decorate cookies with Mackenzie, Flynn and Jaxon (Kandi's son). The girls played dress up (Mackenzie was "Queen of the Swans" and Malia was a princess. Pink is her **favorite** color.

It was a good time!
