Say Cheeese!

I learned the hard way, that you definitely shouldn't let your 2 year old run around 'taking pictures' with your digital camera...
About 2 weeks ago I was sitting at the computer typing away, and was holding Anna...Jacob was playing but got tired soon after. To keep him entertained for a few minutes, I thought it would be harmless to let him take pictures of his sister...
Somehow he dropped the camera while the lens was out, and when I picked it up it wouldn't go back in...and it was ruined!
I felt bad for letting him play with it, and as much as I was sad that we no longer had a camera, it wasn't his fault.
Randy tried to fix it, and had no luck.
After almost 2 weeks of being 'camera-less' I have to say I don't know how I survived without it! When you have young children, they're always doing funny, or cute I have been looking forward to a new camera. Randy did the research (as always :)) And we decided to go w/ another Sony camera. Partly because we have the battery and charger which will still work with this camera. He bought it from Amazon, and so far so good. We just got it yesterday, it's a Sony cyber-shot. Our previous digital camera was a 7.2 megapixel camera, and this one is a 12.1. This camera has so many cool features, I love it! I'm still learning to use some of the features, since we just got it yesterday...but I am very impressed with the whole package. It's very user-friendly, and it looks sleek and nice.

I thought I'd post some of the pics Jacob took before the other camera died...and a couple of pics I took yesterday while out for a walk w/ Jacob and Anna, with the new camera :)

6 years and counting...

I'm sure 6 years ago yesterday, when people went to our wedding...some people may have wondered how we would ever last. We are so different, and from such different backgrounds. Yet here we are 6 years later, with two beautiful children, and more in love than when we first started out.
I don't have much time for blogging lately, but I wanted to blog about how wonderful Randy is, and what a perfect husband he has been these last 6 years. I always knew he would make a great dad, what I didn't know is how much he was going to love being a dad and playing, taking care of, and teaching our children. I have said it before and I'll say it again, I couldn't ask for a better husband! Not only is he a devoted and loving dad, he is a helpful, contributing, and loving husband. At the end of his work day, when he gets home and is totally exhausted, he is never too tired to take care of the kids, mow the lawn, do dishes, clean up after dinner, play with the kids, and put Jacob to bed. He really works hard, both at his job, and here at home. I want to express my gratitude for who he is. He makes my life better everyday. He's funny, and smart, and not to mention the sexiest man alive! (I'll be in trouble for saying that...), it's true though, what fun would it be if I wasn't married to my best friend, and the sexiest guy I know?
Thank you mijo, thank you for 6 wonderful years. I love you so much!

On another note, we went to Tepanyaki for our anniversary dinner. It was so delish, I ate so much! We had a great time. The best part is, we actually went without the children! Yay for some alone time! Thanks Aunt Kay and Uncle Ron, they took such good care of Anna and Jacob. :)

We have had a busy few weeks. My youngest sister was here with us for almost 2 weeks and my parents and other sister were here last weekend for Anna's blessing. The week before Anna's blessing, we attended Randy's grandmother's funeral. We will miss her so much! She was always so sweet.

My favorite part about my sister being here was the fact that Jacob could get to know her, and have someone (other than us) to play with. Here's my favorite video of Jacob playing with his 'auntie P' He's still askin for her, which is kinda sad :( But he sure had fun with her!
