Fashion Tales

This is Savannah Maurine Green.
She is named after her Great Grandma Maurine. We talk about her a lot in our home.
Did you know that Great Grandma Maurine was a buyer for a department store years and years ago? She used to travel to New York and attend the fashion shows. Oh how I envy her experiences!
Grandma Maurine had great taste in clothes.
As a little girl, my heart would just flutter at the idea of receiving a flat rectangle box from my Grandma. I knew it would contain the cutest outfit I had ever seen. She just had an eye for that kind of stuff.

Savannah has been dressing herself lately. It's a battle I have decided not to engage in. This is how she emerged from her room the other day. Do you think she inherited Great Grandma Maurine's talent?

Baby Connor

My sweet friend Nat had a baby 7 weeks ago. He is now 7 lbs, still smaller than any of my babies when they popped out of me. He is so darling and perfect, and I just couldn't resist putting his pictures up for you all to drool over. I make Nat come over to my house all the time, which I am sure is draining her gas budget prematurely. She is so nice to put up with my demands, and keep my baby tank from running on empty. Nat, I love ya. Here he is!!

Tehya is 8, and we have a dog!

We are now a family of 8. Four kids, two parents, a cat, and a dog. Oh and I forgot...we have two fish. Chad was teasing me the other day...asking me if the reason why I keep adopting pets is because I can't have any more babies. Maybe he's right. I never thought I would have pets...but just look at what has become of us...
I like it.

Happy Birthday Tehya. We love you so much. You are an amazing girl!

My new shoes

So I got these new shoes...and I love them. They are so weird looking, but they make my muscles so happy. I have been wearing them around in hopes of breaking them in a bit quicker. I even wore them to the driving range.

Wanna know something?...I signed up for a half marathon trail run, and I hope I can run in them. The run isn't until October, but I don't know if that is enough time to build up the mileage in these shoes. For now I can only handle about 15 minutes of solid running. A few nights ago I was able to do about 30 minutes of sprints, and that was it. My legs were SHOT. I am still sore from those...these shoes force you to use muscles you don't normally use. I LOVE it!! So do any of you have these shoes? Do you have any advice on building up to running long distances in them?

Well Hello!

Oh my, I just noticed the other day that it's been too long since I've blogged. What about Easter? Tehya's birthday? I have a lot of catching up to do. Lets start with some pictures from Easter break, with a little trip we took to Great Falls. I finally pulled off these pictures from my camera...I'll be back tomorrow! I promise.

(You may be wondering, where are the falls? I can't seem to pull my camera away from faces...I didn't even take any pictures of the falls.)
