happy birthday luke!

so technically, well not even technically...these are just really late and there is no excuse. they are, however, finally here and well worth the wait i'm sure. i like to think that even though i'm a shameless procrastinator, i'm not a never-finisher. sometimes it just takes several months...or years. anyway, this time it was only 5 months overdue and if i look at that number and say, well it wasn't 5 years, that right there is a success story. yay me!

life's too short to be an 80's music genius

for some reason, i became profoundly aware of the fact that i haven't written a worthwhile blog in quite some time. by worthwhile, i mean one that had some humor and some actual substance to it. i'm sorry to all of you out there that i have failed in my lack of being creative. i think i'm creatively challenged. i really do. one of my friends (a rather "long-distance" know who you are ahem rachel) wrote a blog about the fact that somehow projects that we have the greatest intentions of finishing or hobbies that we really want to become dynamos at...just don't get accomplished. mind you, there are those of you out there (larissa and rachel even though somehow you don't think so)who are able to pull out a scrapbook and fill it with cuteness and creative juices in like 8 seconds...or is that how long you can stay on a bull? anyway, how you all do it, i have no idea. i'm pretty sure i've mentioned before how i'm pretty sure i just wasn't born with the gene or i'm just not motivated. dangit, its probably the latter...maybe i just don't have enough ocd to really accomplish something fabulous without getting add and focusing on something else. that's got to be it. i just have add. not really of course, just a lot of excuses. i am making the effort to make strides, however. i got a sewing machine for christmas--thank you mom--i don't know the first thing about it, but i got one. all of my pictures are on the computer just waiting patiently to become a digital scrapbook...could i be anymore lame? i can't even do a digital scrapbook, let alone a fabulous real anyway, i just want to let you all know that because you have told me at one time or another that you love me just the way i are (had to slip in a little timbland in there for some reason), its your fault that i suck at everything. hello?? where was the encouragement or the actual pushing to force me into a talent that i could show off to people at church functions? thanks a lot. okay, okay, so i'm kidding of course. i thought i could get away with it for a second there. someday i'll find a hobbie that's worthy of me. maybe i'll invent something like best commercial jingle singer or 80's music genius. ya think? probably not, right? mostly because there are still people that can even kick my trash at those things. oh well, i guess i'll just have to stick to playing with my kid and laughing hysterically when he sticks marshmallow in his hair. life's much too short.

viva's that for cheesy?

well, here it is...the moment you've all been waiting for--or not, i'm sure its really just me that is celebrating because i actually posted the pictures from the big trip. ps no i'm not pregnant, just disregard the large picture of me in front of the boat in the polka-dot shirt. unfortunately, i suffer from unphotogenicness every once in awhile...sad, but true. enjoy

here we go again

so, i'm totally sorry for dangling the idea of me coming back with pictures way back on dec 20th and then not following through. i could say i've been busy, but i guess what i've really been is absent. we were in utah for a week and a half and instead of blogging, i was going out to eat to all the places i have to go in salt lake before returning to washington state and olive garden. i was also shamefully addicted to the strawberry shortcake game my niece got for christmas for the nintendo ds (i beat it in a week by the way...that really probably shouldn't have been shared). one thing i will admit with at least some diginity is that i was pretty busy chasing luke around because he is officially walking on two legs all over the place. holy cow that kid is fast! dang, whoever decided that kids should be so independent so soon did not ask me first. i definitly would have kept the reins on the mobility a little longer. anyway, after utah we set sail on a cruise ship down to acapulco, mexico. i know what you're thinking...sweet, i can't wait to see those pictures. don't come running back to your computer screen too quickly. not only do i suck at keeping in touch or writing a simple daily blog, but i also suck at remembering to take pictures when the opportunities arise. there are a few and they will hopefully be posted here shortly. i will make no promises, however, since on top of everything else, i don't want to be known as a liar as well :) so instead of promising to be back soon, i'll just say i "hope" to see you all soon. that works, right? here we go! the long awaited pictures and just because i know you've been waiting oh so patiently...i threw in video as well. nobody tell andy that luke's favorite christmas present was the pink stroller that his GIRL cousin received. good times :)
