A visit with our favorite people

We finally made it to Grand Island to celebrate Grandma's birthday, and Grandma and Grandpa's anniversary - 69 years! That is an amazing love story.

So many giggles

Willa has a nightly ritual of playing peek-a-boo with the pj's that she is about to wear to bed. I think it is just her way of stalling bedtime but it is so cute that we let her get away with it.

Nuptual treats

This was prototype #1 for brooke and Brian's wedding dessert. Vanilla/almond. They were a hit! I may have to see a dentist after all the "testing" I did though. Very sweet.

Dear blog readers, this is very important

Please take a moment today, and each day in the month of March, to visit this website and vote to provide a year of funding for research into a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.


I believe the website does a better job of explaining the disease than I can. The reason I ask that you do this is because of Baby Sam Bennett. I came across her story on facebook, through mutual friends of her family. Her papa, Zach, went to Hastings College at the same time as I did. I didn't know him well but it breaks my heart to hear of a story about a tiny human, so close in age and appearance to my own little muffin, who will only be on this earth for a very short time. Baby Sam's mom, Laura, has a blog here: http://babyhomepages.net/ourbabybennett/index.php. Please also keep this beautiful family in your thoughts and prayers. I cannot begin to imagine the strength that it must take them to get though each day. God bless them, and all other families affected by illness and loss.


Look at Willa with Kael and Borne! She looks huge (and like she might feast on them at any moment:) They are each about 2 months apart, with Willa being the oldest. It won't be long and they will catch up with her, she better pick on them while she can!

Did I say Michael Phelps? I meant Michael Jordan.

I think our little lady is unnaturally good at rolling a ball around. Really! She has aim and can catch and everything! She is kind of a ball hog, but she will fit in just fine with the rest of the Lakers, right???

Weiners in shirts

Our washing machine did something goofy to this cute onesie of Willa's. So Bailey wears it to the office on casual Fridays.

Happy Heart Day!

The original plan for Valentine's Day was to spend it in Grand Island with Brad's family and my grandparents but the oh-so-familiar Nebraska snow had other plans for us. So, we had a very nice dinner at my parents house, and they had some gifts for Willa. Brad and I gave each other gifts too, but we must have forgotten to photograph them. They were shirts.

Look out, Michael Phelps!

A few weeks ago, we took Willa swimming for the first time! She loves her bathtime so much, we thought swimming would be right up her ally. It was great fun. She seemed a little apprehensive at first, but warmed up to the pool quickly! The fun did come to an end when a little boy jumped in near her and made a big splash. She did NOT like that surprise:) We look forward to this summer, when we can go swimming all the time!
