We love our little Abby. She is our little parrot and such a sweet piece of our family. It dawned on me the other day that Blythe is about the age that Abby was when she got her first pair of glasses. I couldn't believe how little she was, she seemed so much older. We took Ab to the eye doctor last week and they told us that her eyes are improving. It was such great news and we were so happy for her to progress. But even though her future without glasses is very far away, I found myself wondering what her little face would look like without her super cute specs. She's adorable either way, but I sure do love seeing her little glasses and cheeks.

Baby Blythe's Parachute Dress

Every girl in our family has had their pictures taken in this dress at age 1, from my mom down to Baby Blythe. The dress is made from a World War 2 parachute, and it's getting so fragile. We are so lucky to have such a fun family tradition and also to have our favorite photographer willing to snap a few pics of our kids. (Thanks again Randi!)

The Linder

For years and years my wonderful mother has used her expertise to strengthen other people's companies, making them extremely successful. Finally she is branching out on her own and allowing people to see how extremely talented she is. I was so proud to go watch her speak at the Spokane Convention Center. We brought along a few of the quiet grandkids to see...

Abby really was thrilled, but this part of the day happened to be during nap time....way to go Mom!

I'm Back Part 2

(Favorite moment of the night, Cooper stood in front of my Dad's truck and used the force to turn the lights on and off. So cute!)

I'm back!
