Two Front Teeth

April 22, 2008

That’s what Luke is now missing! We came back from my brother’s wedding and his top two front teeth were loose. He lost the first one last friday (at school) and the second one last night:

He was awfully excited. How the heck is he this old already?!


Spring Break

April 17, 2008

We ended up going to Disneyland as kind of a last minute thing one day over spring break last week. We decided after the move we REALLY needed a day away without any house stuff! Unfortunately it was more crowded than we’d hoped, but it was still a good day. It was the first time we’d gone to that area at California Adventure that is like Yosemite/Lassen/Sequoia, etc. Luke had a lot of fun and I took the only pictures of the day there:

Also, here’s a picture of a finish from mid-March that I never shared. It’s Melissa Shirley’s “Red Jimmies” needlepoint candy:

Things are going alright here but I’m still awfully busy with life in general. At least our hiking trails have been reopened, finally, as of last week. It was definitely strange to see the fire damage, and sad, but it’s good to see some green out there and be able to get out there again.

Wedding Pictures

April 11, 2008

My mom sent me some pictures that she took at my brother, Matt’s, wedding two weeks ago (how has it already been two weeks?!). I finally got around to uploading them today so I thought I’d share some of them. This one may be my favorite; it’s Luke coloring with my grandmother (his great-grandmother):

Here’s another with me, Luke (the ring bearer), and Sophia, just before the wedding. Oh how I love her dress!

And, finally, here’s one my mom took of me, Tom, and Luke towards the end of the reception:

I’m going to go dress shopping on Monday so I’m sure that will spur some major diet/exercise in my immediate future! We finally got moved last weekend so I’ll start having a lot more available time to exercise (when I’m not brushing up on my calligraphy or some other wedding-related thing). I still have quite a bit of stuff to get moved this weekend and then I need to clean the old house but I’m hoping to get most, or all, of it done this weekend. Someday I may actually get to stitch again…

1 Down, 3 To Go

April 1, 2008

Weddings this year, that is. Sorry I haven’t written; I’ve been really busy since my brother’s wedding was last Friday. Also, we’re moving into Tom’s house this weekend since we finally have the vast majority of the work done. I’m swamped at work too, naturally. Hopefully in another week or so I’ll get my head back above water and be able to write a real post with pictures of something.
