House Update

These pictures are from Tuesday, a lot of work is being done. I am starting to get so excited!

Whitefish Montana

Leif and I went along for a business trip to Montana with my parents. Tim and Nicole also came and we had a blast. Instead of writing a ton about it, I'll just post a slide show and you can take it all in!! Most of the pictures in the slide show are Nicole's, so the kudos on the pics go to her!!


After meeting up with Tim and Nicole at the Airport and picket up our totally hot ride ( a mini-van) we headed towards Whitefish Montant. However, we saw something along the way that was too good to pass up!! Silverwood is right along the freeway; the rollercoasters looked like they could give us the excitement and neck pain we needed for a long sit in the car. We also ended up running into my two sisters and their families that were they too by chance! So we had a mini-10 minute family reunion in Silverwood! Ha!

Summer is Slowing Down

Our last big trip of the summer has come and gone. I will blog about our fun filled trip to Whitefish Montana in a bit. I thought I would share my favorite picture of the trip while I am blogging about that. Nicole took this one. Isn't my son gorgeous?!?!?

House Update

Our house is still chumming along, we had a minor setback, but that is to be expected I guess. If everything goes to plan (HAHA) the roof is *supposedly* supposed to be on August 19th. Holy Cow! I won't hold my breathe though. Here are some pictures that were taken Friday. They don't start working again until tomorrow. They have been taking a break since July 31st. Grr. Get to work already!!

A New Car!

After months and month of only having one vehicle we finally decided to get a new one. I sold my little 2 door Honda Civic Si in January and decided that since Leif worked here at home that it would be easy to just have the Truck. It worked out for awhile, but latley it seemed like we both needed to go somewhere at the same time in opposite directions.

Leif talked to a guy at Church who works for an Auto Auction. He was able to get us this new (to me atleast, it's a 2006) car for 6k less than it blue books. What a great guy to know, right?!?! I am in love with it!

Clark County Fair

While my nephews Cody and Ashton were in town I took them to the Fair. The were very helpful... they even got Leify dressed and ready to go! It took both of them to do it, but they figured it out ;)
My friends daughter was part of the "muttin' bustin'" So I went to go and cheer her on. The fair is always a fun experience. It was great having the Cody and Ashton around, they are growing up so fast. I know that this is what it is going to be like with Leify, and it kind of scares me! One minute they are playing with Pokemon and the next they are driving cars!!

A few more pics from Colorado

I think Leif misses having a cuggle-bug. Too cute.

9 Month Check-Up

Leify had his 9 month check up today, he was a little behind because I decided to switch Dr.'s. His previous Dr. was a little too "let nature take it's course" for me. If my baby is sick I want him better now.

He weighed in at 19lbs and was 28inches long. I guess that puts him about in the 40th percentile for both. He is growing up so fast!

Today is our last day here in Colorado Springs. We've been having a blast. Aspen and Leify have been playing great together. Mia is gorgeous and a sweet little baby. She loves to be cuggled and sang to, and most of all to EAT. The Hasselblad gene must be overpowering...she looks exactly like Malo, just like Leify does Leif.

Aspen has a play tent that has a door bell and plays music. Leify has started to wave his arms around now when the music comes on. It is pretty funny, I have no idea what made him start doing this, but it seriously cracks me up.

I think spending all this time with girls; first Aubriana last week, and now Aspen and Mia, has made Leify find his voice. Usually he is quiet and easy he can yell and scream with the best of them. It is interesting to see the strong separation of the sexes in kids as young as these.

We are taking the kiddos to Kiddie Kandids today to have a cousin picture. I have a picture package with Yeun Lui at home, but quite honestly I am fed up with them. The last two times we have gone Leify and I were herded in and out like cattle. The person taking pictures could have done a much better job, but didn't. So to Kiddie Kandids we go.

Leify has also been taking cues from Aspen in the walking department, since we have been here he has started standing up on his on. He will stand in place for up to a minute at a time!! Thankfully he hasn't figured out how to start walking, or life as I now it would come to an abrupt end. He has been playing with a "learn to walk" toy of Aspen's while we have been here....scary.

I finished the fourth and last book of the twilight saga, and I must say I was very happy that the author finally made the nonsense between Jacob and Edward end. I wish this wasn't the end though...I think Leif would disagree, lol. I managed to finish the 700+ page book in less than 24 hours.
