We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Lazy Blogger?

Ok, I admit it, I've been a lazy blogger. I don't even have an excuse except that I've been lazy about it. There's plenty to blog about, lots is happening in our lives. My mom and sister both busted me. Julie said, "You need to blog, I'm sick of looking at your raccoon face!" And my mom said , (nicely) "Your raccoon blog is still up. When are you going to blog again?" I told both of them I would blog.....yesterday....and then I didn't. It's just a matter of getting into blogger and pushing the post button and then typing and posting pictures, right? I know it sounds easy...that's why... On my honor I will try to do my best to blog more often. I know that's vague but, I will do better...that's all I can promise.

So now you may think...she is so self absorbed if she thinks her blogs are SO important. Well, apparently my mom and sister thrive on it. Which I love. And it's not that I don't like to blog....well, sometimes I hate it when blogger doesn't work right for me; which, happens more than I like to remember. But, I love to read people's comments. I love getting comments from long lost friends who have stumbled upon our little family blog. And I love to get comments from friends that are regular readers. So, again, I'll blog more often...I promise.

Speaking of comments...I love to get comments so, you'd think I leave comments on people's blogs...nope...not really. Sometimes. But, I'm going to do better with that too. I read over 50 blogs!!! I love to read other peoples' blogs and recently I have even been reading a few blogs of people I don't even know. They just have very enjoyable blogs. I want a blog like that. So, I guess the first step is to blog more often. Again, I promise.

Here is what my mom and Julie really want. More pictures of Marley. Here is what Marley did today while I blogged.

She plays under the computer table, at my feet. I tried to get a cute picture of her peeking through or reaching her hand up to push as many buttons as she can, as fast as she can, but she wasn't cooperating. So, here is just the tip of the ice berg...I mean here is the top of her head.

She hangs out in the desk cubby. We try to keep the shelf up but she loves to take it out and sit in the cubby. She looks startled in this picture because I wanted her to look at the camera and smile so I said, "Marley!" and it startled her, so I got that instead.

And here she is trying to dominate the key board drawer, and hangin' onto mom's leg.

She was making a funny face in this one but, my camera was too slow.


And then she chillaxed in her bouncy, which she is getting too big for, and had a BLT (that's our code name for bottle or B-O-T-T-L-E). We don't want her to even know what that thing she sucks on is called. Oh and yes, she is using her foot to help her hold her BLT. I have no idea where her sock is....hmmmm.


This was not today....this was yesterday. I left my purse down, within her reach, and she took my wallet out and cleaned it out for me. Good news: I have $8 in cash I had forgotten about. Bad news: There is no bad news...she helped me clean out my wallet...I can't complain!


And now you can see how we move our couch right in front of our computer sometimes, so we can watch "our shows." And the wallet mess. She's SO happy to help.

We love you all!!!

Except that she's stil pretty much bald, she looks grown up. Thank goodness for the bald head or she wouldn't look at all like a baby. I miss her. Thanks for blogging.

I wish Maya would help me clean out my wallet and find me $8 cash I didn't know I had!!!

Sean Brittani & Mara said...

Mara's favorite obsession is cleaning out my wallet. I can't complain either! Who likes to clean out their wallet?!?! She is darling! Keep up the blogging.

Michael & Cherilyn said...

yes...you do need to blog more. i was getting tired of your raccoon face, too. And, among those 50 blogs, you better be reading my Love, Actually blog. Being that I practically did YOUR job for you for two years at BYU..i think you owe me that at least. :) ..oh, and maybe you can pass it along to any friends who might be interested. You owe me that, too! :) How's Nebraska?

I love comments too. Well I like your little racoon face but I'm glad you posted again and HELLO - how cute is that little one of yours?? Sometimes I read the blogs of people I don't know too. I don't know why....but, I do. :)

Jeanette and Jason said...

Dang. That last post was from me. I'm at my sisters house and it was still logged in under her name. (actually it's my secret identity - don't tell anyone or I'll have to move again.) :)

Ashley & Aaron said...

Remember, you were going to get a picture of her teeth. We want to see the toothy grin.

Thanks for blogging. I love to read your blog. You type just the way you talk which makes it fun for me to read. It makes me remember how funny you are.

She is so cute! I just love her smile. Glad to see that she wants to be apart of your computer time...Ethan does the same thing. It drives me crazy!
