Well I am sad to report that Aiden did not win the baby contest but I send a big thank you out to all those who voted with me! I much appreciate it. I may be a bit biased but of course I think he should have won.

So lets see here....not sure what all has been going on since I've last written. Life continues on and the summer continues to fly by. Here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks for your enjoyment.

A few days ago Kreg hung up a baby swing from the tree in our backyard. Aiden loves it. And please don't miss the "too cool for school" sunglasses Aiden is wearing. I know its hard to see but there's a little on them, right between his eyes. Way cool huh?!

And the cool guy swinging away with his serious expression on.

Hard to believe but sweet corn season has already come and gone. But we enjoyed every minute of it while it lasted, especially Aiden. He love, love, loves corn on the cob, as you can see here.
And this is Aiden after a weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Hansen....otherwise known right now as Mamaw and PaPa. All tuckered out.

My Last Plea!

Ok this is my last plea....I think. The baby contest I entered Aiden in ends on Friday. So please please please help me by voting for him. It just takes a few seconds. Please send an e-mail to with 1003 in the subject line of the e-mail. And your name, address, phone number in the body of the e-mail. That's it....that is all you have to do. And write yourself a note to do it everyday BECAUSE YOU CAN VOTE ONCE A DAY EVERYDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. And if more than one person in your house has an e-mail address then you all can do it! Please help me. We are behind some in the votes and I would love to win this baby furniture for our new baby!

AND it doesn't matter where you are from. So even if you are a faithful reader from out of state (i.e. my beautiful family in Washington or Oregon :) vote away! and have your friends vote too or post it on your blog and see if you can get more people to help me.

Below is the picture I entered of him so all your friends can see who they are voting for...hint hint pass it on! Isn't he so cute! Definitely worth the 20 seconds a day it takes to vote. Yes I am laying it on thick :) I wish I could promise something in return but all I can promise is good feelings for you, knowing that you helped me out. And I promise if your kids are ever in a baby contest then I will be a faithful voter for you too! thank you so much to those who have been voting and to those who will! I much appreciate it!


Sheeweee I have so much I could update on here. Sorry it has been a while to all you faithful readers. This past week we were in Colorado with Kreg's family. We were a bit crazy...we drove 3 vehicles out to haul all the people and stuff and had 3 babies with us. Ok well it was 2 Toddlers and 1 baby. But to my delightful surprise Aiden did great in the car. I have to admit I pretty much just stuck him in front of a DVD player the entire way out but I didn't care as long as it entertained him for the 21 hours it took to get there (and 21 hours back again). He absolutely loves Baby Einstein so he was quite thrilled with this plan.

This is in Kansas City at the hotel we stayed in. Yes the truck definitely came in handy but no that is not all our stuff! Aiden is keeping guard with his Uncle Kent.

We stayed in an absolutely beautiful cabin near Salina, Co. (west of Colorado Springs). I had never been to this area before but it was really pretty. The first day we took a little hike to a waterfall in which Aiden got all tuckered out and fell asleep on Kreg (very cute picture below).

How Aiden fell asleep in that thing I have no idea but he was totally out. Kreg pretended to keep walking while we took pictures so Aiden wouldn't wake up, wish you all could have seen that!

Then the great flu epidemic began. Yes you read correctly.....Monday night I am awakened in the night by a very sick and upset Aiden. And then I was sick Wednesday and Kreg on Thursday. And Aiden was still having problems on Friday (and the ride home). Kreg and I both agree this was the worst flu we have ever had to endure. And sadly many others came down with it too while we were there. So that definitely put a damper on the week but the family tried hard to stay in high spirits and still enjoy the beautiful scenery. Unfortunately though with it effecting Aiden, Kreg, and me we didn't get to do a lot more while we were out there. I was extra thankful the cabin was so very nice with all the time we spent there. And it was nice to spend time with family and have everyone together, even if it wasn't the best of circumstances.

This picture is a little hard to see. Sorry, I'm not a photographer. I was outside checking out the sunset and thought I'd try to get a picture of the cabin too. But you can see the outline...very picturesque. And to the right is the beautiful sunset I was working so hard to capture.

So I don't have a lot of pictures because who wants to take pictures when you're sick but I will try to get more from my father-in-law. And I am posting the ones I do have.
