Happy 6th Anniversary Gabe!
Happy anniversary Brandi & Doug!
Happy Anniversary Duane & Anna!
Yes, these are professional pictures. Yes, it is completely legal for me to post them on my blog. Yes, it did take me a while to post them (he is now 4 months old). Here are a few of our favorites.
Gabe, Stephanie, and Alex (hmmm...doesn't look so great when I reduce the image quality to post on the blog.)
Alex lounging around.
Alex in his model pose.
Alex and his "ALEX" train. His onesie has "Alex" embroidered on it as well as a train, but it is hard to see in the posted pictures.
The day we had Alex's pictures made also happened to be our fifth anniversary.
Gabe's favorite picture of the two of us.
I am making an attempt to go back and categorize all of my blog entries. It is not going as quickly as I had hoped.
I also need to update the list of blogs that I read. Some of the websites are no longer functional. I also read quite a few more blogs than I have posted. So, an update is going to happen in the very near future.
Oh how I love you!
Yesterday was very exciting. We went to Target TWICE! We bought a can of baby formula and it was dented and formula was coming out of the top. So, I returned it for another can. While Gabe was checking out he noticed the new can of formula was also dented. What are the people at Target doing with all of the baby formula? Are they playing football with it? So, I went back for another can and the first can I grabbed was dented. I finally found a good can and that is the one that we purchased. I also had to return a Space Bag. It had a 6" rip in. As you can imagine a bag that keeps air out does not work well if their is a large rip in in it. We also had some pictures made. So, look for those to be posted soon. We always buy the copyright to the pictures, so it is completely legal for me to post them.
Yesterday was also our 5th anniversary and it was a really relaxing day (minus the Target fiasco). My mom and dad ordered us a cake for our anniversary from a bakery in Denver, Colorado. It was sent overnight delivery and the cake was packed on ice. It had mousse in the center and needed to stay refrigerated. It was should have been delivered to us on Friday but it wasn't. It didn't even come Saturday, so my mom called and canceled the order. The bakery kept telling my mom that the cake wasn't being delivered due to the weather. We assumed they meant Denver. No, they meant Tucson. The cake was sitting on the loading dock in Tucson and FedEx refused to deliver it. The weather was gorgeous and in the 70's. I think they were trying to save money and didn't want to drive the 20 miles to deliver our cake. Either that or the FedEx people are enjoying our cake that was featured on the food network. If they are calling this bad weather they should try living in Illinois for a winter. So, the cake was ruined and we will never know how good the raspberry mousse center tasted. We went to a local baker and bought a very yummy black forest cake.
Stephanie (with new haircut), Alex, Elsa, and Clara.
We ate at Solaris for our anniversary and it was yummy. It is now my favorite restaurant around. Taco Bell is my next favorite. Solaris has Greek inspired food and the bruschetta with feta was wonderful.
We came home after dinner and relaxed.
Gabe and Alex reading.
Today we went to IKEA. We bought a couple of side tables. It was Alex's first trip to IKEA. He slept through most of the time at the store. They have free diapers in the bathrooms. So, Alex wore a free diaper when he needed his diaper changed.
Now we are back home watching the Super Bowl. Go Arizona!
I have two Christmas presents made and I am going to finish a third one while watching the Super Bowl. Only a bazillion more left to make and yes, that is a real number.
Happy 5th Anniversary Gabe!
Happy Fourth Anniversary Gabe!
Happy 1st Anniversary to Shane and Stephanie!
