Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

I was looking for something completely different (not even a photo) when I ran across this one. It was taken at the Prom my Senior year of High School (1992). I remember being really upset that my sister would be at it (she was a Sophomore, I think). Turns out that it wasn’t so bad 😉

A year ago, the whole family got together for my little sister’s graduation from High School. At that time, since everyone was there, we had a professional photographer come in and take about 200 photos. I didn’t post any at the time because I hadn’t purchased any at that point. . . and when I finally got around to purchasing the photos, it was winter and it didn’t seem quite right. So now… here are the photos from last year’s photo shoot! (Please note that some of them are dark – noted with an asterisk. I didn’t realize HOW dark they were until I uploaded them, but I’m lazy and didn’t take them out of the frame to scan them *blush* )

*Perhaps some day I’ll take those photos out, rescan them, and re-upload them…

Happy Birthday (Aunt) Lynn!

I’m so glad that you and Jim had fun in Norway…(and yes, a wee bit jealous too 😉 )

I hope we get to see you soon!


Happy Birthday (Aunt) Cathy!!

Thanks for always helping out with the kids 🙂

I’m really glad that we’ve grown closer over the past bunches of years – who knew when I was screaming “You’re not my mother!!” while we were younger and you’d be telling me what to do, that I’d evenutally get over it and we’d be pretty good friends! LOL

Weekend in Vermont – Part 3

While in Vermont, we celebrated Logan’s birthday.

Who says sugar doesn’t do anything to kids??

Maggie’s always singing, but she’s never this…hyper about it. And in this next clip, she’s recruited Auntie backup singers! LOL

The next day, to battle the sugar hangover, Grandpa gave everyone a tractor ride.

Weekend in Vermont – Part 2

I teased you a little bit in my last Vermont post with that one picture of Shelburn Farms…sorry!

Warning: This post is picture heavy!

First, you get a hay ride out to the barn (see the AWESOME barn in my last post). Notice how none of my kids are sitting in my lap! (or Mike’s either.)

Note to self: Why the heck did they call it a hay ride? There was no hay!

Poor Maggie couldn’t keep her hair out of her face…

Then, you have LOADS of things to choose from! I didn’t get pictures of everything, but the farm had cows, horses, chickens (LOTS of chickens!), donkeys, pigs, turkeys, a llama, goats, sheep, and bunnies.

They let you milk a cow!

There were crazy chickens everywhere. My Dad kept inching Logan closer and closer…

Nobody here but us chickens

They also had a play area with lots of things to do, a bakery, a cheese factory (with samples!), and a lunch cart.

I think my Dad misses farming.

It was also really good to see that the place has a sense of humor.
