Bucket Photos - the first two years

Can't believe we've been doing bucket pictures this long. There probably won't be any more of just Caleb by himself - at least for a long while. My little squirt is getting so big!

A Christmas blankie for a Christmas baby

Besides Squirt getting better this is about all I have to show for last week. I worked on it a whole lot last week. But now it's done and I'm so excited!

I saw a similar blanket HERE and though I had no idea where to find the pattern, I decided to try it anyway. I'd never tried crocheting granny squares before - but it was actually really easy.

The best part was that I could work on tiny little squares for most of the time and didn't have to hold a whole blanket on my lap. Definitely a good summer time project!

Balloon Surprise!

Here are a few pictures of the gender reveal - in case you can't get the video to work.

Blue and green balloons....

Caleb's reaction was my favorite - he sure loved all the balloons floating to the ceiling.

Sam's reaction was the next best - he said, "That was AWESOME!"

And then we ate yummy little blue cupcakes.

And Caleb got a ride in the spinny chair from Dave.

Yes, it's true. Brandilyn and Dave are the best neighbors ever.

On the way to tell Grandma about the balloons.

Oh - and we asked Caleb if he could say brother. He said, "No. Balloon!" And we checked with him this morning - he still thinks that a baby says 'meow.' I wonder if he'll get the point by December.
