Like Mother, Like Daughter


After Mommy modeled the not-so-appropriate way to wear a tutu Gwynn tried it on for size too! She looks like one wild child. Okay, so maybe we're just silly tutu heads!!

My Babies and ME!

"Nana, I sure do love all of the outfits and hats that you knitted for me and my baby dolls. We have been warm even with all this snow! Colyer, I'm taking care of the twin babies you gave me for my birthday too! I love feeding them and hearing mommy make them burp! I put them in my grocery cart and we go shopping together too!"~Love, Gwynn

Making Up For Lost Time!

This is an official apology to all of our dear family and friends who check our blog and have been sadly disappointed the past 5 or so months. I can't believe I've let it go this long without any updating! Well, this next list of pictures will sum-up some of what has been going on in our lives lately. One of my 2010 resolutions will be to attempt to add some new memories to the blog every month or two. As of now, we'll play catch up! Gwynn loves pudding and Shep (Grandma Gail's dog). Avery, Sydney, and Gwynn played together at the Luedke Thanksgiving. She's hangin' out with the big girls. Yee-haw! She's catchin' a ride on her bouncing zebra. She was reluctant to sit on Santa's lap...that is, until he offered her a candy cane. Aww...he's a man after her own heart. Then, Gwynn tries on Daddy's slippers. Those are sure big shoes to fill.

























Our New Home

Here are some pictures taken of our new home after the first snow of the season. Bart is tinkering in the new shop and is working at getting it organized and set-up. Gwynn and I have been painting a few rooms and rearranging furniture. Our new dog, Foxy, has been roaming the grounds. Gwynn loves peeking out the windows each day to see Foxy playing with the neighbor dogs or running to the door for a treat. So far, the serenity of the country has felt like a peaceful vacation. It is truly feeling like home.

Gwynn also experienced snow for the first time. She didn't know what to think of this freezing white stuff that made her hands so cold, but she's sure enjoyed "cooking" the snow slushies that we brought in from outside in her play kitchen.

Sliding into Fun

Tyler came over to play and made Gwynn crack up over his baseball slide into the newspapers. Yep, pure fun. Don't mind Gwynn's forehead full of calamine lotion. The mosquitoes feasting on her the night before. Enjoy the video! Hope it brings a chuckle.

Gwynn began standing up in her crib. The world is looking brand new again! Check out her video!

Easter Time!

The fun times continued during Easter weekend. We met Grandma and Grandpa, Maison, and Stuart for Easter dinner and an Easter egg hunt! Gwynn loved looking at all the Easter eggs that had been found!





Easter Gatherings

We were invited over to Grandma and Grandpa Berger's house on Easter weekend to visit with family and to eat some delicious angel food cake! Gwynn had fun playing with everyone and had a great time trying some table food too!











Easter Party

Grandma Gail hosted the annual Easter Party where Gwynn observed her first Easter egg hunt (she slept through most of it). It was great to see nieces and nephews, cousins, and aunts and uncles! Here are some pictures from that afternoon. Enjoy!








Easter 2009



We hope everyone had a very memorable Easter. It was truly a special holiday. We spent the weekend visiting with family. Gwynn loves to be on the go! She enjoyed all the hugs, kisses, and conversations with family members throughout the weekend.

Gwynn is 3 months old



















Gwynn is 3 months old! The time truly does fly by and every minute with her is different, yet wonderful. These pictures captured Gwynn's smile and personality pretty well, I thought. She is a happy little lady most of the time! I hope her smiles bring one to your face as well.
