Carson Lately

Carson is talking more and more, and stringing words together. And he has the ability to focus and say things repeatedly; especially on longer car rides. Imagine listening to a 2-year-old say, “Tao” (i.e., Cow) hundreds of times on the way to getting ice cream. It’s one of those things we’ll soon miss.

Carson, Lately

Just a quick note that as soon as you take Carson’s shirt off, he loves running all over the house! Very cute, but have to plan a few extra minutes to laugh and smile.

Visiting Santa

We had a fun family day beginning with brunch at the Gingerbread House at the Great Wolf Lodge and then visiting Santa. Harvey surprised us by asking Santa for a firetruck and a goldfish!

Children’s Books Quotes

At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.

~ Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express

There are things about you quite unlike any other.
Things always known by your father or mother.
So if you decide to be different one day,
no worries . . . I’d know you anyway.

~ Nancy Tillman, I’d Know You Anywhere, My Love

Carson, Lately

Carson is all smiles lately. He’s started rolling over from his tummy to his back, and is reaching for everything to put in his mouth. It’s really fun to watch him feel things out – from baby toys to blankets. He’ll also spot you across the room and smile.

Saturday Adventures

Fire station open house with G’ma Robbi, G’pa Terry, Aunt Katy, Uncle Taylor, me and the boys.


Corn maze and line dancing with G’ma Peg, G’pa Dan, Kathy & Doug, Farm G’ma, Marge & Lee, mom, dad, and the boys. Harvey loved running through the maze.


The Gender Reveal

Here’s a video of the big reveal!

We’re very excited for June, and look forward to having a little-little one in the house again. It will be a sleepless summer, but at least we’ll have Harvey to help change diapers!
