Easter Egg-stravaganza: 2014 Edition

April 28, 2014

Two years ago marked the first nieces pieces Easter egg-stravaganza. This year marked the second! Fast forward to 2014, and it’s fun to spot the changes – most notably the fact that three of our nieces pieces are now sweet little ladies, and “Baby Molly” makes an adorable fourth addition to the bunch.

January 27, 2014

What a difference six months makes in aerial scenery. Last weekend we paid a visit to Minnesnowta for some family fun – including the chance to see two of our nieces pieces!

Change of Address

September 11, 2012

Thank you all for the well wishes on our Arizona arrival! Bobby officially started his new job yesterday, so things are feeling even more official. He looked very nice headed for the office despite my artsy (as in, not really) crooked photo. Our 1,760-mile journey to get to Arizona was an adventure, to say the […]
