Excuses, Excuses

I know, I know. I've been promising to do this for weeks now. And just when I feel like I have nothing to write about, I start thinking back to all the things that have happened in the last few weeks and realize that I do have a lot to blog about. So here goes. A few weeks ago, Jeremy started building a pergola onto the back of our house. What we thought would be a maybe 2 weekend project is now dragging out into a sweet forever, but one day soon (hopefully before Lauren's 3rd birthday) we'll have shade and ceiling fans and a really nice spot to sit outside and enjoy the view of the creek from our backyard. If anyone would like to help us paint, we have plenty of brushes :) Here's a picture of what it looks like right now:




I can't wait to see it once our backyard is cleaned up! So anyway, the pergola building started, work picked up, birthday parties happened, 2 neices graduated, and I just got busy. I kept thinking "I must update the blog or I will lose my faithful 3 readers!" However, it just never happened, and I kept pushing it farther and farther out. But fear not my faithful 3 readers, here is your update, along with lots of pictures of our little one!

The slideshow covers what we've done the last few weeks.



We are now firmly ensconced in planning a birthday party. I cannot believe almost 3 years have gone by! Every day gets a little more challenging and a little more fun, as Lauren develops into her own little person. Questions are asked all the time at our house, and I stay mentally exhausted, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have a post about my first New Orleans trip that has been circling around in my head for a few days now, but I didn't want to turn completely serious in my first post back. So, someday soon, when I've sorted it all out, I'll blog about it, but until then....enjoy the slideshow!
