A Good Time Was Had By All....

So, everyone saw on a previous post that we had a Progressive Dinner shortly after Christmas. Well, one of the girls that hosted part of it decided it was truly a news-worthy event, and we were published in the "Stewardson Clipper!"

Karen, I think you'll really appreciate the last sentence! It was my contribution to the article, and I think that it's so "Manito Review!"

ANOTHER Birthday!

These are a month old, or so, but I thought I would post these pix of Ella opening up at least one gift from her birthday last month! Nick and I weren't there for her actual birthday party, but we were there the day before and got to give her her gift while at Mom's for dinner. So, I thought the sisterhood in Minnesota would like to see the couple pix that we have!

I like to think that this picture is proof that Nick will do just fine if we end up having all girls someday. He patiently held each outfit up in front of Ella for a picture. If anyone doubts me, let me know, and I'll post each outfit! ;)

I love this picture because it shows how much Ella James loves Nick. It doesn't matter if the James girls only see him once every few months, they always come running to the door to greet him, and although he would maybe not admit it, he really likes it!

Happy Birthday(s)!

Happy Birthday, Kendall! Believe it or not, the baby of the family turned 23 yesterday!

And, Happy Birthday to Addison Michele Harms. Born yesterday morning around 11:30 am, her crazy mom called me at 12:30 and I had an email with pictures in my inbox around 1:30. Our conversation went something like this:

Brea: Her name is Addison Michele.
Kelly: "Michele" after Kelly Michelle, right?!
Brea: Umm, or perhaps Breanne Michele.
Kelly: Hmmm. Well, potato/po-tah-to.

Congrats, Brea and Ryan!
