Sweet, Sweet Girl

Happy Happy Birthday to my baby whose no longer a baby!

Who knew that in 4 short years, she could go from THIS sweet innocent baby girl (note the proud papa)

To THIS...still sweet(now, with a little bit of spice) girl enjoying a snow cone on her grandma's back porch.

Here are some things we love about our little Katers.

Her uncanny resemblence to her older sister and idol, Morgan.

Her beautiful blue eyes, that change shades depending on the mood and the weather.

Her chubby, kissable cheeks.

Her spicy attitude that can make me laugh or want to pull my hair out in the same five minutes.

Her cute imagination and ability to entertain herself in any surroundings.

But most of all, how she completes our family. She gets along famously with her brother and sisters, and watching them all play together makes me smile. We love you Kate, Happy 4th Birthday!

Bountiful Basket Anyone??

Can you believe I scored all this farm-fresh goodness for $15? I KNOW!! All I had to do was log into their website (www.bountifulbaskets.org) on Monday, pay my fifteen bucks, and pick up my basket at the designated location on Saturday. Easy Peasy. Each week I get different items in my basket which has greatly enhanced my cooking creativity, and here's a bonus..my kids actually grab for the fresh stuff instead of cookies and fruit snacks! There are locations in Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and Wyoming, and new locations are opening all the time..check it out!

Through the eyes of a 3 year old...

One day when I was busy sitting in front of the computer screen for possibly a little too long....

This little one got a hold of my camera and proceeded to entertain herself taking random pictures around the house. (After she stripped herself of the cute white sweater that her mother insists she wears with this dress!)

This is what I discovered after the camera was confiscated....

Not bad for a three year old. A budding photographer? We'll see.

Excuse My Rookiness

Okay...I said it was my first video upload! Sorry about the private thing. But I think it is fixed now, you may have to give it a minute or two to load...and we did have a bit of a rough start so just bear with! :)

Sunday Stew (day old)

This is how my Mother's Day went...

Kate making sure there is NO peeking going on...

Then.... SURPRISE!! Holy Cow, are you serious?

Let me take a closer look at this gem.

Definately a keeper!

Complete with amp, mic, and music stand, it will no longer be Angie "Unplugged"! How did I get so lucky?

And since stew tastes even better the second day....

I had a surprise visit from my Grandma and Grandpa Herbst today! I can't tell you how excited I was to open the door and see those two standing there.

My Grandpa is a master guitar player. I remember sitting for hours when I was a kid listening to he and my dad play together. When I was about 15 I decided I wanted to learn to play like that and so it began. I wasn't the only one with a desire to learn to play. I also have a dad, a brother, 3 cousins and an aunt that all play as well. All because of this guy. What a legacy my grandpa has left! I am nowhere near as good a player as he is, but I hope someday I will be. It was such a treat today to be able to sit and watch him strum away on my new Mother's Day present. Then I got my old trusty out and we had a little jam session. So now, for your viewing pleasure, (well, at least mine) is my grandpa and I playing a song that has been sung in my family ever since I can remember. It's called "Pearly Shells". (this is my first time uploading my own videos, so I hope it works)
