Congratulations to Sam and Nikki on the birth of their baby boy (no not twins like the title might suggest): Jameson Paul Stewart. He's adorable to say the least. I can't wait to get him in my hands and love on him. I still can't believe that Sam, my best friend, my brother has a baby boy. He's a dad. Weird. Couldn't be happier for him...I'm talking with Sam on gmail chat and he tells me that Jay looks like me. What do you think?
Here's me as a baby...
Here's baby Jameson...
I would say so.

To CrAiG & mOlLy...

Nic and I watched Craig and Molly's 4 kids while they were gone for a few days. Here's what we were up to while you were gone...
We had a terrible time while you were gone...not. I don't know why Christa is scowling - apparently she didn't want Krew to take her picture.
We took self portraits - this is Krew.
We did homework - Chase being a good boy and doing his homework.
We shoved your kids in closets when we didn't want them around. Not! This was Kole's hiding place for hide and go seek - Uncle Nic had a hard time finding him.
We ate dessert, made a mess and loved every minute of it.
We jumped on the trampoline. Kole and Chase were always wanting me to go jump with them.
We did side flips. Kole loves doing them.
We also did front flips. Chase looks like he's going to land on his head.
We snuggled up and watched movies - Krew and Kole watching Jack Frost.
We watched Dora the Explorer...A LOT! Christa LOVES that show - Chase was watching it with her.
We took pictures of Aunt Alli experimenting with curling her hair. Ok, I like taking self portraits. haha
We took baths because we enjoyed our desserts so much. What a cute girl!
We even spent some time with the cat, Gracie. She was a snuggler.
All in all, I survived. Survived? The 4 of them are really easy to take care of. We had a great time watching them. By 8:45 p.m., I was having a hard time keeping my eyes open. I now understand when moms say that being a mom is a different kind of work. It's fun and exhausting. PS Sorry Nic for no pictures of you. Hope you had a great time in AZ Craig and Molly, because we had a great time while you were gone. Don't forget to look below...


On my LAST day of college EVER, my wonderful parents sent me flowers. They are so pretty. Thank you mom and dad - I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you. Seriously, I have the best parents in the world (everyone says that, but mine truly are the best :). They have sacrificed so much for me and never cease to love and show me kindness. I can't believe how much they have supported me through 4 1/2 years of college. Thank you doesn't suffice, but THANK YOU mom and dad. I love you much!
Bright and pretty. The card said: Congratulations! Love Mom and Dad

BeLiEvE iT...oR nOt

Believe it or not, I was officially done with college this morning around 9:23 a.m. - took my one and only final this morning at 8 a.m. I won't believe that I have graduated from college until I have that piece of paper in my hand. I will walk on June 12 at 10 a.m. - that's when I'll have a graduation "party." I still can't believe that I have no more school...EVER! Of course, I might go back and get my Master's, but not right now. After 4 1/2 years, I have finished college. :)

MoViN' oUt

What a great broadway show (Movin' Out). That's not why I'm posting though - Nic and I are moved out of Holabird. Everything was moved out yesterday thanks to quite a few men folk. A huge thank you goes out to all who helped (mom and dad included). I couldn't have asked for a better moving day: sun shining, strong muscles, loving husband and wonderful parents.
There was a 90% chance of snow for Friday night. When Nic and I woke up on Saturday morning, we were so happy to not have snow on the ground. I felt bad because I was gone for 2 1/2 hours for a training meeting. Nic, my mom, dad, Craig and Molly cleaned our whole apartment when I was gone - big help I was. Ha.
I seriously can't believe we're all we have to do is unpack. After church, we came home and started unpacking. Nic is setting up the DVD player and system as we speak so we can relax and watch a movie.
I will post pictures later...maybe. Our house isn't the cleanest right now. We shall see...

Goodbye forever! Tonight/tomorrow will be spent cleaning and packing and moving the rest of our belongings to Larch Lane. :) Hello to:
