We've been pretty busy lately and Amanda's been slacking on the blogging. Here are some things that we have been up to.

Karen and Andreas got married on Sat. Aug 16, 2008 at the Denver CO Temple

We tried for a family picture

Amanda dancing with our nephew Calvin. Isn't his little suit adorable?

Our brother-in-law , Ninja Walter

Shyler dancing with Tim's cousins, Jessica and Erica

Shyler and her Nana. She was sad she didn't catch the bouquet, but she did find a flower at least

Shyler and her first pea experience. She thought they were ok, but not nearly as good as the sweet potatoes she had last week.

Our nephew Calvin's 1st birthday cake. He had his party on Sunday and turns 1 on the 28th.

At first he wasn't sure what to think of this messy stuff...

...But as you can see he had no problems devouring the cupcake. Much better than the last one year old party we went to. No offense Shelby, but you got to make a mess with your birthday cake.
We also painted last weekend. We have some touch-ups to do and then hang up some pictures and we'll get up the pictures to show off!

Shyler's fun with daddy

Sorry it's sideways, but this is Shyler's newest excitement. She loves acting like a big girl and she will probably make us pay later for letting play on the stairs, but it's so cute to watch her with her daddy, her hero.

A house to call home

Well we finally did it, we closed on our house!!!! We moved in on Sat and we have been trying to get all unpacked and work on the small things that needed help. Tim is excited to be Mr. Fix-it and to mow the lawn, Shyler is getting used to her own room, and Amanda is trying to find a spot for everything. Soon we are going to paint the living room and kitchen area. We are so excited to be home finally. Call us if you are in the Thornton area and want to stop by to see us and the house!

The Front
The Kitchen

The Living Room

The house is a tri-level with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It has a deck and covered patio out back with a fenced in yard. It has newer carpet and a new furnace, that we had to buy. The previous owner took pretty good care of it, so there are only a few things to work on and then painting of course!
