She's a dancin' machine!!!

She get's her moves from her Daddy!

Clifford the teenaged girl???

Over the weekend we went to Barnes and Noble where we heard that Clifford the big, red dog would be making an appearance. We were so excited- we thought Eden was going to LOVE it....but here's what really happened. We got there right as Clifford showed up- 11:05am- Clifford sat down- we sang the hokey pokey- the kids got their picture taken- Clifford left- the kids got coloring sheets- and by 11:20 we were out of Barnes and Noble. The car ride TO the mall took longer than that! Oh well. Too be honest- I don't think the teenaged girl in the costume wanted to be there. Hopefully next time they get someone a little more animated.

" me mom! Sure it looks like a dog on the outside- but look at his eyes- there's a girl in there mom... he ate her and now he's going to eat me too!!"

Here's Eden and her little friend AJ. As you can see they just LOVED sitting with Clifford!

Sorry. These were supposed to go on with the last post.

Our first day in Portland

Before we had even made it to our new home we decided to take a rest stop at the BEAUTIFUL Multnomah Falls. It was wet...very wet, but so worth it. Dustin, TR, and TerriJo were adventurous and hiked up to the bridge while Eden and I stayed down below to 'try' to take pictures. Everyone had a great time- especially Eden with her free sample cookie!

Two little monkeys jumping on a bed...

So this happened about a month ago, but I decided it had to be one of my very first blog entries. Eden and Dustin were playing 'who can make a louder noise when they fall on the bed'. Dustin was laying down on his side- he would pick up his hands and smack the duvet to make a loud noise. Eden thought this was SO funny, so she gets up on her knees and throws her whole body on the duvet making the same funny loud noise. This goes on for about five minutes- smack the duvet- giggle giggle giggle- smack the duvet- giggle giggle giggle-CRACK- AHHH!!! Eden had pulled one her signature moves. She held her arms out and open like she wanted a hug and then headbutted Dustin so hard they both had tears in their eyes. Actually, they might have both had tears coming out of their eyes too.

Let the blogging begin!

Now that we've made our big move to Portland, I decided to start a blog to keep everyone updated on our life (because we are so interesting...). Mostly this is so everyone can see Eden-because if you can believe it, she just keeps getting cuter and cuter! Anyway, let the adventure begin!
