When the moon hits your eye...

Pizza Making

I had a hankerin' for pizza. It was drive to Papa Murphys or try our hand at making our own. I was very worried, because I had given up trying to work with yeast dough since a failed attempt in Tyonek. We gave it a shot though and it turned out beautiful! Our first ever homemade pizza -- crust and sauce -- was delicious. Click on the picture above to see the results. :)

Montana's Grass Skirt

Montana's Grass Skirt

Okay, so I wasn't prepared for this aspect of parenting. The part where my child has a few very impractical pieces of clothing that she wants to wear everyday, everywhere. Besides this lovely pink grass skirt, she discovered the Little Mermaid nightgown (very frilly) that she got for Christmas from Uncle Dave and Aunt Andrea (thanks, guys). I insist that she wears pants under the "Mermaid dress" when we go out because it is just a bit too short. Somehow I haven't taken any pics of her in the mermaid, but enjoy her Hawaiian dance moves by clicking on the picture above and playing the slideshow.

Hallie's First Food

When Hallie turned 4 months she got her first taste of rice cereal. She didn't really care about it. Since then she has tried applesauce and prunes (since she rarely ever poops anymore), but doesn't really eat it when I offer. She had her 4 month well-child check and is a healthy 14 pounds and 26.5 inches, 81st percentile for length and 50th percentile for weight. Despite her constant, smelly gas, she is happy most of the time and has the best smile!

Hallie and Her Lion

Hallie loves this lion she was given by our neighbors! The day after I shot the wrestling match I posted below, I took some pics while playing with the features of our camera. I thought the color effect was neat.

Our Blog

So I am trying out the blog method of posting pictures and stories about our family in an effort to make pictures of our rapidly changing children more frequent and up-to-date. I can't promise that I'll be good at it, but I am going to give it a try. I am rewinding a month to the last interesting photo shoot. (In my opinion.) Click on the picture above to be taken to a web album in which you can view the photos in a slide show (at a really fast speed for those of you with very little time on your hands :). Enjoy.
