please, just come as you are.

anna wants to have a luau hawaiian theme for her birthday party. well, i made the invitations non-hawaiianish. i used what i had. she got worried.

"mom, they won't know to come in their hawaiian clothes. what if they come dressed like someone from england?"

does this invitation say "dress like your from england" to you?

she has started young. when we, my siblings and I, were younger (okay we still do it--but it's not quite the same with a digital camera) we would take self-potraits all the time. my mom would get so mad when she developed the film and there were self-portraits of us. "waste of film" she would say. but i say they are my favorite pictures and i think she secretly adores them now.

i heart mother earth

Posted by Picasa

these are a few pictures i have taken over the last year and a half. most are in colorado and a few in utah at arches national park.

it really is a beautiful world we have here.

there is a reason it's called the mud season

Posted by Picasa

so the ski season if officially over and the mud season has officially started. shawn took the kids (including the dog) down to the river to play. and they all looked like this when they returned. i didn't think to take a picture of the others until after they were in the shower. oh well. i am sure they will be back there soon. happy spring.

easter 2009

it was wierd not having family around on easter this year. and it snowed. and i burnt the ham (i tell you my culinary skills are nonexistant). and anna wore the same dress as last year (i felt it okay since we were in utah last year).

but the kiddos still looked cute.

it's all make-believe, anna

anna asked me yesterday if oprah was the same kind of doctor as dr. crane and niles*.

yes, anna, she is. the exact same.

*that would be frasier and niles crane, from frasier--my favorite show these days.
