My new favorite quilt pattern! Made this for my brother's new baby Annika.

Favorite Little Chubby Toes

Seriously doesn't get much better than this for me! Paris had always had little fatty feet and toes. They are getting a little stretched out but still chubby. Loved this pic of her feet in dress up shoes!

Thank you notes with Will

Will is a hilarious little guy lately. He often hugs me tight and says he "will never let me go." Also the other night he said, "Mommy, you are a very attractive woman."

He makes me laugh!

20 Awesome Basketball Shots

We live in a time when your 10 year old son can devise crazy shots with his buddies, take video on the flip cam, add music, edit the film and have it uploaded to You Tube in a matter of minutes. 

For those of you who got a taste of Cooper McKeehan's first production (Awesome Ping Pong Shots), this is the sequel "Awesome Basketball Shots."

Coop was born in Michigan, and so he chose Eminem for background music (Clean version - don't worry). 

For those of you who know Coop well, some of these shots are classic Coop (like the one off the roof at the end). He will always have that knucklehead factor -- but sometimes you just gotta embrace it and laugh. And if you look close you may see some of your own kids also in the video.

My only disclaimer is that I was at work while all of this happened. 

Click on the link and enjoy if you have 90 seconds.

Will just came down in this get-up and told me he is "going to explore the coast of Egypt."

His outfit included a blanket, a hooded sweatshirt, hockey pads, a torn up pillowcase and a pair of my old leggings.
