I can't believe it's been 7 months since I last logged in. That is unacceptable! So much has gone on, so many changes and memories! I'm not sure how I can catch you all up, but I'm going to try to recap the last 7 months. Here goes!
We welcomed in the new year with family and friends. Monique and Brian stopped by to liven things up a bit!
February - Akasha started doing a little baby sitting for us! Wahoo! :-) She taught Kaitlyn a few dance moves! hahaha
My cousin Christopher was accepted at the Sheridan Police department! I was delighted that he would ask me to watch the pinning ceremony. (I think that's what its called! - sheesh, he's the first Police Officer in our family... gimme a break). I can't get over how proud of him I am! He really worked hard, devoted all of his time and stuck to it. I admire his perseverance.
February ended with the passing of a very special person in my life. My Uncle Dean Larson was a kind, strong man. I adored him. He was so funny and sweet. I have many memories of him, he loved playing card games, loved the outdoors and loved to go fishing. We recently got together and spread his ashes in a river he loved to fish in. It was a moment that I was overcome with emotion. My Uncle Walt honored him, and I was really touched by that. I am really going to miss him, and I look forward to seeing him again!
A few of my favorite quotes from this video are:
- "yeesssssssssssssss - aaaaaaaah!" followed by the Rock star ending.
- "You sang the right words, you were thinking in your head that you were a rock star"
- "I think you're really good, you're going to be ready for St. Patrick's Day!" YESSSSAH!
- One more from the same night. I'm so bummed because I missed her saying " YO YO YO DAWG... " hahaha.'
This one is hilarious for a few reasons:
- hannah on, hannah on, hannah on TANNA! YESSSSSAH! " That's what she calls Hannah Montana. Hannah Ontanna.
- The several rock star endings.
- Air guitar.
- You have the show DOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWN AHHHH!"
We got in on some spring sledding action too - It was a fabulous day for sledding, the sun was so hot - that the nearly two feet of snow we got all melted by the end of the day! Alex, Austin and Richie came and enjoyed the fun too!
What are the chances? Someone was definitely guiding me there - I had no reason to turn there!
There were also some pretty spectacular sunsets in June - well not just in June, but I happened to capture a few that took my breath away! I took this shot from my patio. I love Colorado.
I think Ive posted enough pictures for one blog. But i have this enjoyable video of Kaitlyn asking about the "bambooboo trees".
Well, I think that brings me to August! Kaitlyn's first day of Kindergarten is tomorrow!
I can't even begin to write about that now!
