My Grandma Bear

November 12, 2011

Why does it hurt so bad when someone dies?   My beautiful Grandma – Ella Jelene Maag – died yesterday evening. She was surrounded by her sweetheart and her children. She died peacefully in her sleep.   She was so brave, she battled a brain tumor and the aftermath of cancer and treatments for one […]

A Day in the Life of a Two-Year Old

November 4, 2011

Being two is a lot of fun. There’s a lot of drawings to make – chalk is theย  preferred medium.     It’s important to take a break every minute or so to go look at something different.     If you can’t see over the railing – stepping on your tippy toes will help. […]

Club House

October 14, 2011

  What else is there to do with huge boxes after you unpack? Brad had the brilliant idea toย  make a huge club house in the basement.     Katelyn had as much fun as Brad did! We just had to decorate the club house!       The boxes are large enough for even […]

Oh…Say Can You See

October 6, 2011

  The 4th of July was so fun and so different. We camped out in the middle of the median to watch the city’s parade.ย  Katelyn had a BLAST!     There’s just something so patriotic about watching the flag and color guard go by. One benefit of having a little child with you when […]

Katelyn’s Pictures

October 5, 2011

I told you I would post some of Katelyn’s pictures. I should’ve put a collage together with all the pictures she took with her hand over the lens, but then I thought that no one would really want to see the same picture over and over again. ๐Ÿ™‚   Here’s a bunch of pictures that […]

Curtain Call

October 4, 2011

Disclaimer: If you don’t want to read my boring monologue about spiders, humidity, camping, and curtains – just scroll through and look at the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚   The amazing thing was – in the month between looking and deciding on our home and actually moving into it – the house played host to the worse […]

Driving Across the Country!

October 3, 2011

Due to several requests from family and friends I am going to skip the updating from the first part of the summer and start posting stuff that has happened since we moved to Virginia!   Warning: I combined all 5 days into one post… so it’s really long!   Brad’s company was great – they […]

May: Random Pictures

September 7, 2011

Here’s a few random pictures… all in the name of practicing with my camera! ๐Ÿ™‚

April: A Walk In The Park

September 2, 2011

I love walks in the summer evenings.   It’s also fun to go to the park and swing.         Katelyn discovered a new game to play while swinging. Of course it helps if Uncle Danny plays along too. (I’ll try to post a video of them)     This is Abby – […]

April: Poulton Easter Hunt

September 1, 2011

Of course Easter was celebrated with our Poulton family too! Katelyn had to take a quick nap to get enough energy to find more candy, but us older kids got a chance to find some Easter eggs too! After dinner Anna and I had a fun time talking all about wedding stuff, pictures, a bridal […]
