BYU Old Spice Commercial Obsession

You know you have watched this youtube video too many times when your four year old looks up at you and says "I'm on a cart! He-yaaaah!"

My quilts

For the last year I have been working on these two quilts. One for my bed and a picnic blanket. They were a lot of work, but fun and a good learning experience. My mom and I were doing the one for my bed and my aunt and cousins helped me with the picnic quilt. It's definately more fun to quilt in a group and lightens the load. The second one has almost 1000 triangles in it and the first almost 300 circles. I can't seem to choose a simple pattern. I think that I am taking a break from quilting for a while.

The second one has now been quilted and the edging almost finished and the picnic one is done and already well used, but I don't have a picture. This one gives an idea of what it looks like. I'll have to add final pictures later.

MS bike tour

We love to do the MS bike tour as often as we can, as it supports a cause very close to our hearts and it is a lot of fun!! Yes, biking 90 km is fun!! Especially with our crew this year. We were fortunate to have 2 babies with us this year. Isaac and Charlotte. Babies make most things more fun. There were four of us who biked; me, Patrick, my sister Ashley and our friend Gord. And we had two great drivers, photographers and baby carers along as well; Mike, Ashley's Fiance and Aleta, our friend from high school.

We had lots of fun, got really good burns on my part, got a great work out, and raised some good money for MS research thanks to much support. Thanks!!!

My baby is one

It was so fun to celebrate one year with our sweet little boy. He is such a happy lovable little guy. It's amazing to think another year has gone by. He has turned into this blonde, dark skinned little surfer baby. I love it!

Isaac was such a gentleman with his first cake, but loved every bite. Don't tell him I made it with whole wheat flour, pumpkin and half the sugar. We had some fun games, guessing facts about Isaac and then had a baby race with the three babies. They were all a little bewildered at first, but Isaac pulled through and came in first. He is pictured here with his friends Dawsyn and Landon.

Eliza's Birthday

Took me a while to get these pictures up, but Eliza's birthday was definitely eventful. We ended up with about 14 kids there, with siblings and extra's and about 3 minutes before the party started our glass patio table shattered all over the deck. I was determined to still have the party outside, so we roped off the deck and Patrick kept the kids busy with lots of fun games.

I played with this picture in photoshop and didn't do what I wanted, but I thought it looked very hippyish and cool.

Pure Joy

As I watched Isaac in the bath tonight, I was captivated by the pure joy in his smile and laughter at such simple things. He put a bigger cup over top of a smaller one and began to belly laugh, like it was the funniest thing he'd ever seen. I wanted to grab the camera, but was too tired. I think that it's one of the reasons we have children, to remind us of the joy in the simple things and just being alive. I have spent lots of time enjoying and watching Isaac, and as he nears his first birthday I hope that I will continue to observe the pure joy that he finds in things and incorporate it into my life as well.
