I'm An Auntie - - AGAIN!!!

Just got news that, while on a road trip to Anacortes, Anna gave birth to our niece! 3 weeks early!

Marion Elizabeth Oliver was born this morning weighing 5# 12oz. She is healthy, though, and I haven't had any news that Anna is anything other than healthy and happy too!
I'll post pics when we get them!
Can't wait to hold her and snuggle her close.
Congratulations Shaun and Anna & Conner!

Dred Journey Update

2 months. We have to seperated them every couple weeks so they don't become one big dred. The Dr. Bronner's has worked great. I think she may try to get the liquid insead of the bar next month. They are beginning to get their own "personalities". Flat, forked, kinked, crooked, and perfect - she is still loving them.

Hiking in Hyalite

I love where we live~
My friend called these "faerie dresses". I think it fits, perfectly...
At the lake. It was more like a pond in my estimation, but lovely none the less.
Snack break. Minda talked & slapped at Mosiquitos more than she snacked.

Happy Birthday Conner!!!

2 years ago today I became an auntie!

Shaun and Anna gave us this wonderful blonde haired, blue eyed bundle of sheer delight. We just adore our little man. They are awesome parents, and I am so blessed & proud of how they care for, discipline, and direct him as he grows.

We are far away and don't see them often so we make the most of it when we are together.

In September we will be welcoming another niece or nephew! Conner will be a BIG brother. It's hard to believe I could love the next one as much as I love our Con-con, but I know my heart will melt on sight.

In October we will see Joel finally marry Courtney, and will get to have lots of hugs and kisses from Conner and meet our newest member of the family too. I'm so excited!!

Hope today is filled with tons of love and fun and treats and friends, Conner! We love you!

Summer's treasures

Cassia and I spent a morning, just across the way, treasure hunting & came home with a trove of sweet delights...

We just cut the hay down, and new neighbors moved in right away.
