William has had to work 16 hour days for the past 6 days.

We miss him.

Stupid thunderstorms and heat wave.

Fruit Smoothie Recipe (2 servings, 112.5 calories each serving)

1/2 cup skim milk
1 individual container yogurt
1 cup frozen fruit

Put one cup of frozen fruit in the food processor. Chop until in small pieces. I used a mixture of Raspberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries.

Add a half cup of skim milk and chop again until smooth.

This is what it will look like so far. You could stop here, but I like it creamier.

Next, put in a container of yogurt and mix it again until smooth. I used a 6oz. of Yoplait Light Strawberry.

This is what it looks like when it is done! (2 servings in one glass because we like to share)

(Excuse the mess! Daddy's not home this weekend so we are having a toy party in the living room!)

Young and Silly

I have had a pretty rough week. Lots of craziness going on. So I thought I would post some funny pictures I found of my husband and I when we were dating. He was in the National Guard and had to keep a clean face whenever he had duty. I loved his beard though so he would grow it out for me when he didn't. I don't know why we thought it would be funny to document it, but we did...

Full Beard. How I still like it best.

Goatee. Man, we look young!

Mustache. I wouldn't take a picture with him like this. I thought he looked creepy! His mom was on the phone with him, so I let her be in the picture.

No facial hair! Darn military rules!
I forgot that I had blonde highlights. I used to experiment with my hair alot.
Ah to be young again!

First Birthday Week in Review...

I went swimming for the first time.

Mom made me a HUGE chocolate cake!

It was good!

We went to Missouri for a week the day after my birthday. Uncle Carl was graduating High School.

We went to the Memorial Day Parade. There were alot of bands, many men and women in uniform, different kinds of cars, and even a clown.

Look Uncle Carl was in the Parade too! He plays the drums.

Then we had another birthday party at Grandmas. I got to eat another cake!

I got to play with my cousins....

and open presents.

When I got home I sure was tired!

I had alot of fun.

So you think you can dance?

James just started doing something that I think is so neat.

Whenever we are in the car... He constantly dances and sings along!

It is so cute! The bad part is, he stops when he figures out you are watching him.
