Out of the Cave!

Our backyard on April 19th...something just isn't right.

Lindsey and Coleson are in town! Isn't he the cutest?! I love being able to spend time with my sister, and Benjamin enjoys having a little friend to speak "Benjaminese" with...they totally understand each other!

The first Mariner's game of the season...for us! I fully intended on posting a big "Happy Opening Day" entry, complete with kids decked out in their Yankee best...instead you'll have to settle for this photo, in our Mariner best. (You can bet Luke is happy about that one.)

This is the first smile I was able to catch on a baseball game...that's my girl!

Benjamin is becoming a little bit OCD about which clothes he wears and when. To distract him one day (his yellow shirt was in the wash, heaven forbid), I pulled out Willie's old monster jam shirt. "Wow, big monster jams! Green ones!" It made his day.

Samantha's blessing day, April 13th, 2008. Thanks to all those who attended. Thank you even more for not spilling spaghetti all over my carpet!

Awww! Another smile! I think I have better pictures than these, but I was choosing from thumbnails...and I'm lazy, so enjoy what you get!

I took this picture of Samantha to demonstrate her brothers' attempts to play with her. Notice the Hot Wheels in each pocket of her jacket!

My birthday cake! Thanks, Luke! I'm not sure what's up with the number one...since I turned 26...

Joshua getting so big and doing chores! He loves to be outside working with dad.

And, finally, Benjamin's owie. He ran into the wall. Or, in EmJ's words, "Daddy threw him into the wall!"

Wow, I'm back. Did you miss me?! Well, I missed all of you...I love stalking each of your blogs and hearing about what's going on in your lives, but our internet/computer has been down for almost a month and I really did miss it! I even fished a phone book out of the recycle bin to call a plumber the other day, all the while complaining about the inconvenience of not having the internet!

So here are a few pics/words about what's been going on in our lives since Easter. I'm sorry that this post is very backwards...if you read from the bottom up, you'll get it all a little more chronologically!

The toy cars in Sam's pockets is my favorite! LOL I have missed your blog... what do you think I do at work all day?!

It looks like Luke just gave you 26twinkies instead of a 26 candle! Happy Birthday

It's because YOU'RE number "1" Kirs!
