halloween fun

so we went to get pumpkins to color (we didn't want to try to carve with the little ones). and i picked one out for babe (they didn't have any really little ones). well she wanted to hold it, but after i gave it to her i realized that there was a kind of gash in it, so i tried to swap it with another one and she was not happy, that was her pumpkin, and she only wanted her pumpkin. the thing probably crushed her, but she wanted to hold it.

looking back

so in case people didn't know, our old blog ( was connected to an e-mail that i think has been taken over by someone else. i tried to login and it wouldn't take the password, tried the special question...and it was in another language. i tried for a while to get it back, but it wasn't working. so our old blog is still there...i just can't update it. so just for fun i thought i'd throw in some of my favorite older pictures.

the first four are all within the first month to six weeks after analee was born. the fifth i think is a few months later...but i'm not positive.

boy do i wish i could relax like that!

babe's first time seeing her new brother.

sweet kisses:)

should i take this as a sign of strangeness to come?

babe has always been interested in her little brother.
