just for fun....

I do have work I should be doing, but I did manage to squeeze in time to put together two scrapbook pages today!  I have not done this for quite some time now, so these are nothing fancy, but at least it's got me motivated again!  I'm hoping to get lots of pages done before this new baby comes!  Hopefully I am able to!  On the "Kierstyn" page, I could not think of a good word  to describe her that starts with a 'y'.  She is a talker tho, so that's how I got Yapper....wonder if I should have put  "yacker" instead...does anyone else know of any other words that would work?

Some updated pictures of our baby!  She is the light of all of our lives and is quite the character!  She loves shoes, sunglasses, being outdoors, and gets way excited when she hears dad pull in the driveway from work!  Here she figures she's got this mower problem under control...and I suppose without any boys around to lend a hand, dad will take any help he can get!

North...to Alaska..

is where we went in February!!  We had the opportunity to go for a short (6 days) visit to see Jari and Anita finally!  It was an awesome trip filled with site-seeing, visiting, games and relaxing!  The trip went by much to quickly, and now we can't wait to make a summer-time trip there!  Maybe next year:)  Everywhere you looked the scenery was breathtaking, that I was glad I was a rider everywhere we went and not the driver!  I took many many pictures, here are just a few!~

We spent a lot of time outdoors in January and February, because the weather was so awesome!  One of our favorite parks is the railroad park in Scottsdale.
