Crazy Hair

This is one hair-do she definitely gets from her father. I am so glad she has his hair, since it is so much thicker than mine. I am looking forward to the day when it is past the "koosh ball" stage, however. It is at times like these that I think she looks more like her father than me... Here she is with a super cute bow that one of my good friends from Arizona sent me. I love it! And here she is getting caught with mom's camera bag.

How many binkis does it take.... get this little stinker to go to sleep?!? Well, this day, it took 3. One for each hand, and one for her mouth. Finally, 45 minutes of crying, and we have success.

Updated pics of Elsie

One of the last days in the stroller before the weather turned for the worse. She loves this thing! After bath-time. She is very tired. She's a little more lively in this pic. Elsie at Warren's wedding. Amber & Elsie hamming it up for the camera.

Elk Festival

We spent last weekend in fabulous Estes Park/Rocky Mtn National Park during the Elk Festival. We went up with a bunch of friends/family and enjoyed the last weekend of decent weather. The elk were pretty impressive. The crowds of people were obnoxious. To start the day off our sweet baby girl is hitching a ride with daddy. And here she is with mommy, who is trying to keep her ears warm. Daddy and daughter in the park. Elsie & some creepy guy that kept asking to hold her. Elise with sleep lines. Elk on the golf course. Brendon & DeNae Brendon pushing poor DeNae into the falls...

Visit from the Powells

My (Amber's) parents were in town for a couple of days. While here we went to the Swetsville zoo. It is a local farmer's welding hobby. He has created various animals, monsters, musical instruments, etc. out of old junk, or "supplies" as he so fondly referred to them. My dad loved it! Elsie having a good time in the stroller. We had some time to kill while my dad talked shop with Mr. Swets himself. These are a couple of his creations. The creativity throughout was pretty impressive. Our new van!
