Old Friends!!

A long time friend, Marcee (Kropf) Arnett came into town this week, so Gina and I went to visit her and her family. We had an awesome dinner prepared by her mom (With the help of a recipe from Cafe Rio) It was good just to sit with old friends and share stories from the past and get caught up to the present. The Kropf family are wonderful people, I just love those guys!

Here is a picture of Myself, Marcee and Gina in Mexico our senior year during spring break-

Here we are 10 years later- we look pretty bad after going for a long walk on a hot evening

Here is Marcee and her mom Anne, and me and my mom when we were in primary. For some reason I am sitting in front of her mom and she is in front of my mom! I love the matching shirts her mom made us- we wore them everywhere!

Here we are in college- pre marriage

And after marraige and kids!

If anyone is interested in the dressing recipe that they put on the salad, here it is( and it does taste exactly like the Cafe Rio salad dressing)

1 c. Mayo
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
1 c. cilantro
2 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lime
3 tomatillos husked and washed

Mix ingredients in a food processor until well blended. Make a day or two in advance so flavors are well blended- this is the most important component of the salad.

Co-ed Baby Shower

A few months ago Trent came home from work and said that one of his friends from work was going to a babyshower. He said that a few of the guys had said that they had also been to a baby shower and that it was common for guys to go for their wife/girlfriend, or even a sister or other family member. So I put on a baby shower for a friend of mine and spread the word that guys were invited also. After letting them know that we would have food and homemade eggrolls, we ended up with a coed Baby Shower that turned out to be one of the funnest showers I have ever been to. It ended up being a big party. The men ended up getting into the games and won both of them. I love the concept of a coed Baby Shower!!!!!

Another new camera?!?

Some of you might remember a post in the fall about us getting a new camera. It has been been a pretty good camera, and I take it in my purse everywhere I go. We got Bailey a "Water table" to play with outside, and now you may see where this story is going. Bailey somehow snuck the camera from my purse and the next thing I know she is dunking it into the water...over and over until I grabbed it from her. She thought it was pretty funny. Well, after drying for a few days, there is still moisture in the lens and the screen is all blurry and flicks on and off. So now we are in the camera buying stage again. We liked the Sony that we had, but we paid more than we are going to spend this time. So if any of you have cameras that you really like (that takes good pictures of moving children) please let us know...or if you have had some that you really don't like...

Ponytails, Teethies, and jealousy

Bailey is just growing so fast and changing everyday. Here are a few recent changes...

Her hair is long enough to put in small ponytails!!!

Bailey's teeth are now coming in nice and big. She loves to make cheesy smiles and grin!

Bailey is still unsure of her new cousin Aaron and gets very jealous of grandma holding him. Every time Grandma holds Aaron, bailey cries and climbs up on her.

She also talks a lot more..her favorite words, Daddy, Hi, Night Night and Bye Bye (still working on mommy)
