Ellie, oh is she so cute or what. We had a good time laughing at her and listening to her talk. She is just a doll.

What a fun time we had, part of Scott's family came and stayed with us for about a week we had such a blast. I always wished I had taken more pictures after everyone leaves, it seems like I never get enough of them. We tried to stay busy so we went to the Gilbert house, which is a Science Center with fun activites for the kids, a place called Enchanted Forest a mini version of an amusement park, and the last day Mandi and Brian were here we took them boating. We had a great time and were so glad they were able to come stay with us and share with them the things we enjoy doing.

Here is Grandma in all her glory with her beautiful grandkids. My girls just love her and had a great time, Lucy was especially happy about the story time Grandma gave to her. Zoie well she was just excited about Grandma and

Grandpa sleeping in there new bed at her house. Zoie wanted to go home with Mandi and Brian when they left for the airport, she was pretty upset about it and cried for quite sometime after they were gone. Thanks for staying with us, and Brian thanks for taking some of your vacation time to stay with us in Oregon. We love you all......

Faces, Faces, Faces

For those of you who haven't yet heard the most annoying sound that Scott makes, Talmadge will show you with his facial expressions just how bad it is. If he is in the right mood you can do a certain noise, or talk in a certain tone and he does his sad face. The bad part is, it's such a cute face he does, we just keep torturing him to see it again, and again. Poor baby.

There is just something about girls. It doesn't matter how far away from the camera Lucy is, most of the time she doesn't even know I grabbed the camera but as soon as I take a shot she poses for me, I have very few random shots of her not being a drama mam ma in front of the camera.
Zoie refuses to wear shoes outside, and we have bark dust she constantly has slivers, and so she always has the tweezers picking out her slivers. Sometimes she asks for my help but, usually she heads off to the bathroom and sits in the hallway and this is how I find her on a daily basis. If she can't get some out she has a major melt down.

grandma and grandpa

Here they are the two that started it all. We went to California for their 60th wedding anniversary it was so much fun. They had a big party on the 29th with lots of friends and family, then we had a family reunion the next day. It sure was fun so see so many cousins, aunts, uncles and family we haven't seen in a long time. Thanks for being such great grandparents and congrats, hopefully we can do it again in 10 more years. Love you both very much

Try this again

We will see how this one goes, sorry I forgot the pass word and just haven't had time to update. Pass around the new blog address.

This is the best picture I could find of the family, we had a great time at the Eastwood family reunion, there turned out to be over 75 people there it was alot of fun.
So I will figure out how to do the picture thing so they are in order. The picture of Lucy and Zoie together by the tree you can almost see both of their shiners, if you didn't know any better you would think there was abuse going on they both had black eyes in the same week, what are the odds of that. You can definatey telll they are related huh :)
