So yesterday we celebrated our middle child's 2nd birthday. We had fun, we went to McDonald's and eat and let them play in the play place.

Then after supper we had cake. She even blew out the candles by herself.(it was very cute)

Hello everyone! I know we haven't written in a long time but we have been busy. Our oldest daughter (a.k.a. "S") just turned 3 and she has really grown up. "S" is half potty trained, she has the #1 pretty much down but the #2 is a struggle. She is at the age that she loves to pretend so it is fun to watch her play. Our middle daughter (a.k.a. "H") is alomost 2 and she sure has the atitude to go with it. She loves to color and to get into trouble, life is always busy at this house. Our youngest daughter (a.k.a. "A") is 6 months now and she is changing all of the time. She sits up pretty much by herself, she loves her veggies and oatmeal. She still doesn't sleep through the night but it is never hard to put her back to sleep, so it's not so bad. Bobby is still working for UPS in the evenings and for the past 4 months he has been working for Target as well. So Bobby keeps pretty busy with work, especialy now that it is Christmas time. We are currently living in Bobby's parent's basement. Yes, we did have an appartment at one time but we thought we were going to move into our own house so we moved out of the appartment. So now we are praying and trying to figure out what is the next step. And just to let you all know, we hope to keep up with the blogging world once again.

Well we have great news the countdown to the next addition to the family is over, our daughter "A" was born on Sunday May 25th and was healthy (6 lbs 6 oz, 19.5" long), other then having to be under the Billy Lights for a couple days and will have to go in for the next couple of days to get retested, but other then that mother and baby are doing great. Here are some pictures.

Here are the the Grandparents and the Great Grandparents holding "A" (we'll let you decide which ones are the GREAT grandparents, lol)

"S" has taken to being a big sister again and loves her new little sister, however, "H" is not so fond of her and could care less. "S" has been a big help and wants to feed and burp "A" whenever mom feeds her

Here are a couple pictures of "A" that we thought you might all like a nice close up of "A's" face and one of her stretching out.

Well that's all for now but more to come later:)

Grand Forks Weekend

This last weekend we were looking for something to do so we decided to go to Grand Forks for the weekend just to hang out and do a little shopping. We didn't buy anything at all, which is unusual for us when we go somewhere where there is a lot of stores we like, but its probably a good thing we did not buy anything maybe that shows some restraint :) We did have a lot of fun and we stopped for lunch at our favorite (or at least one of the top) fast food burger joints BurgerTime, and we ate outside with the girls and they got to play in the big grass area they had there. Here are the pictures from that.

We were also able to stop by Tiff's brother Andy's house and hang out there on the way home, he lives in Red Lake Falls. We had fun seeing the changes he made to his place and just hanging out and talking. We were also able then to pick up the hutch that tiffs parents gave us for the girls room, it was being stored at Andy's house. It took us a long time to go get it but we finally made it over there to pick it up. Here is a picture of the hutch.
All in all we had a fun weekend and look forward to many more summer weekends that we can spend outside.

The Amazing Cakes

So Tiff made these wonderful cakes for our Nephew and Cousin and thought we should share them with everyone else. We think they turned out just beautiful, take a gander and decide for yourself.

The chocolate cake picture really doesn't do it justice because the picture didn't come out that great but oh well it was still a really nice cake anyway.

Well this last weekend we had an eventful couple of days. First the girls got to see their Grandma Strand which is Tiff's mom. She was able to come up on Saturday just for the day and spend time with the girls, and we were also able to celebrate an early mothers day while she was up as well. Here are some pictures of the girls playing at the park outside our apartment.

Then we also where able to have Great Grandpa and Grandma over for Sunday dinner where we cooked our first ever turkey. We had a great time and it is extremely nice to have them back in town again. Skylar warmed up to them right away but Hailey is still a little reserved but it is only a matter of time before she will warm up to them as well. Here is a couple of pictures, one of Tiff and Grandma cleaning up, and one of Skylar giving Grandpa a tour.

The Perfect Carmel Roll!

OK so Bobby made these Carmel rolls and could not help but be amazed how well they turned out. The last time he tried to make Carmel rolls they turned out mediocre, but this time, pure perfection. They looked so good (good enough to eat, and we have been), and had the perfect swirls and Carmel that never ends. To top it all off they even came out of the pan without even sticking. For those of you who have made Carmel rolls before you may think this whole ordeal is nuts, but if you have ever had trouble perfecting them like Bobby has, you will understand. There is a picture included so that you can all enjoy the perfection along with us. It is the simple accomplishments and enjoyments in life that God has blessed us with that make life a never ending adventure.

The Girls Play with Daddy as he has down time between jobs

Our First Posting

So Tiff and Bobby have decided after much dragging of the feet we finally have joined the Blogging world. We hope that this will help all of you keep in touch with us, and in turn, help us keep in touch with you.
Currently it is pretty quiet around here. Both of our girls are sick with colds and a bad cough. It has been waking them up at night so Tiff has not been getting as much sleep, but hopefully that will come to an end very soon.
