I am pretty sure this pig is depressed.

Do you ever have those days when you feel a little bloated and puffy? When your clothes feel a little snug? When you just feel hairy and fat? I know I do. Well...GET OVER IT! At least you didnt come to this earth as a depressed and overweight pig who cant even move!

Here are just a few pictures of my mom. I wish that i could have an hour long slideshow of her life and a book of her life story...but this is all that i have. She deserves much more than a few pictures and a few words of recognition. She deserves first of all a great birthday, but also a million hugs, a trillion "Thank you's" for her acts and thoughts of kindness and just simply a day to be a Queen.

I dont know about you, but I am pretty sure she is one of the cutest little girls that I have ever seen! Here's lookin' at you mom!

My mom was an airline stewardess for United Airlines.

"Fox" is a term my dad uses quite often to describe my mom. (She will be embarassed by this.) They met on a blind date and i am guessing my dad was not wearing those pants because he obviously got a second date. Anyways, he always says there was just "something about her".

WARNING: potty language posted!!!

Leah, our brilliant 2 year old decided to potty train herself when we were in California....# 2 and all! You would think that if she is bright enough to figure out the potty process, she could at least say "poops" properly, but instead she says " I doe pooch!" Interesting.

A better close up!

Here we are!

A memorable trip to Illinois

A few months ago I decided to frame pictures of my ancestors and Matt's ancestors. This was no small project! Not only collecting the pictures took time , but getting the right frames for the right size of picture in the right place was not a simple thing...not for me anyways. Needless to say, I spent alot of time looking at their faces, realizing that because of them, I am here! That we were all connected. My mom has the same pictures on her wall and so she has helped me learn who they are and what their stories were. This may sound funny, but I feel like they know my story just as much as I know theirs. So we when we were in Illinois , where my Mom's side comes from, we visited their graves and learned even more about them. Grave sites use to creep me out but now I feel differently.

Leah's Love

Besides sippy cups and getting her nails painted, Leah LOVES Linda's dog Sadie, who we are currently living with. Sadie is a really sweet dog and is an incredibly good dog. Minus the excess hair and her crush/obsession with Matt, she is not too bad!

What Hayley Thinks of Baseball

Matt took Hayley to an Oakland Athletics baseball game when we were in San Francisco. I am pretty sure the hotdog was the highlight. Or maybe she is just loyal to the Dodgers...ha ha.
