happy early birthdays

We did a little bit of early celebrating for the kids' birthdays this weekend. Carter and Cooper will be TEN on Thursday and Katelyn will be FOURTEEN on Friday. And of course, I will be gone. I fly out of Fargo tomorrow around 1pm, and will be back on May 7th. Here is a couple little maps I made them to look at while I'm in Africa, so they can know where I will be each day...

I will miss you all, but know it will be an amazing experience that I will never forget. Can't wait to be able to share it all with you. I am going to try to post on my photography blog while I'm in Africa, so you can check in there if you want!

what was i thinking?

Here is what I made my family do after brunch on Easter Sunday...
It was at this point(when everything was littering the driveway) that I thought maybe it wasn't such a good idea. The kids didn't last very long on this project... but I persisted and it is now clean and orgainzed! YAY!

Easter Weekend

The girls, my mom and I went to visit our cousins in Buffalo this weekend. They had fun going to the new Hannah Montana movie, coloring Easter Eggs, playing Clue and WiiFit, and hunting for Easter Eggs! Check out their GREAT photos on the wall.... ha ha! We had to buy our own Clue game on the way home because Katelyn and Kennedy LOVED it!

IIHF Under-18

Tim and I went to the and the first USA game at the UP Center last week. What a great event to be hosted by Fargo-Moorhead. Tim and the boys spend Friday and Saturday going to games while the girls were away!

one question...

If they had time to build a tower with the dirty dishes... wouldn't they have had time to put them in the dishwasher?

Our daughter...the filmmaker

So this weekend(actually she did it all on Saturday), Katelyn decided she would come up with an idea for a short film, shoot it (with my little point-and-shoot camera that I didn't even know could shoot video), upload it to the computer, learn how to use a video editing program on the computer, and publish it on YouTube. She had some very fabulous actors and actresses to work with...I can just imagine the amounts of bribery and threats that went on before the making of this film!

Check it out on her blog....
