Getting caught up. A little.

Blogging makes me so frustrated. I'll get an entire post typed up with pictures and all, and somehow, I'll ALWAYS lose it. Thirty minutes of work gone... All the time. Anyways here goes again, because I feel like this is something that I really need to do. If I lose it again, I'm totally going old school scrapbook style. I Feel that time is slipping away from me. The months are feeling more like weeks, and I feel frantic to capture some of this fleeting precious time in our families life.

Here is the main inspiration for this random, out of the blue post. My little teeny-tiny. Little miss Lenny. She started to crawl last week, and it made me panic a little. Time is slipping away faster than I'm prepared for it to. This little woman is the sweetest cutest thing, and yet at the same time, there is no doubt that she has a lot of fight in her. Boy, she's going to need it too. She is destined to be coddled by me, her whole life. (Hey, look at me, pressing the save button. Novel.)

We celebrated Rex's Birthday. He's ten now, I think. Rex is Oli's stuffed dinosaur. We celebrate his birthday about four times per year. One day Oli will say "Mom! It's Rex's birthday!!" SO we'll decorate, find a desert, and have a party for him. Oliver is so sweet, how can you say no to that face?!
This is Kris's latest past time. It's a game that helps him practice his moves. He'll be in the NBA soon.
This is Luci, just coming up from the basement. She is completely terrified of the sound the grandfather clock makes down there. She says it's going to "get into her ears." Usually she wraps her head in her rainbow blanky ( the blanky) to go down, to protect against  "the" sound.
This is a picture I took of Eli for his Valentines class project. Yes, it looks like a mug shot. There is a good reason why I'm not a photographer. Eli is an awesome kid. I know it, but I am told so, EVERY time I enter his school, by a random faculty member. I'm not kidding. Somehow, I have raised a very popular kid. It must just be from Kris's side. ;)

I built this beauty, with just a little help from Kris! It was a big deal for me, tools are intimidating!! (This is the brag post, ok?)
My little brother Matt was married in February. It was a nice wedding. It is SO very weird, that MATT is married!! In this picture is me, dad, Matt, Jake, and Kim.

Anyways, I'm going to try a lot harder to post, and to remember about the save button.
