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.
