Our Friday

Well we are home from another adventure!  Today we headed north to, among other things, visit my cousin and get a little photography lesson.  She really helped me...and to prove it, we got home and had to take a few pictures.  At first I thought we should head out to the lake and snap some pictures, but it is chilly...and we just snapped a few pictures around the house.

Gus playing with his sweet cousin Ada while mom got a few photography pointers.

A happy boy riding around the kitchen on his bike/car...and guess what-he learned how to go forward today!

His silly smile!

I hope you all have a good weekend.  It is supposed to be another cold and wet weekend here (maybe even snow tonight).  Bill is disappointed because he had lots of yard work plans.  Oh well!

Oh my, has it been a week without a new post?

I am very sorry it has been so long since there were new pictures.  Where has the time done?  Lately Gus and I have been busy, but good busy.  Monday we tried to get life in order after an eventful weekend.  Tuesday we visited friends with a new baby and brought them lunch. Wednesday I had lunch with a good friend (both from blogging and Gus's baby class) at an amazing Thai restaurant and then we went thrifting!  Today we went to our Bible Study.  We had wonderful discussion in my class, and I hear that Gus had a fun time in the baby room.  The leader told me that he was happy the whole time and even started dancing when they sang songs.  Finally, tomorrow we are headed up to Taylors Falls to visit my cousin, an accomplished photographer, who will be giving me a few pointers on my new camera (and hopefully get me back in the mood to take pictures every day!)

And here are a few pictures I snapped.  His new new thing is that he likes to stand next to chairs and push then around.  In these pictures he has walked himself into a corner.

Gus meets his new friend, Mathias John

Our close friends had a baby Tuesday morning, another boy!  Mathias John is a beautiful little boy, with chubby checks already.  We went to visit last night.  It was fun to see the little family, and Gus was very interested in the baby.

In these pictures I am holding Gus's hand back.  He was very interested in the baby's eyes.  We are going to have to learn about that before our own baby arrives!

Also, a very happy 6th birthday to Mary Angela!  I can't believe you are such a big girl!  We love you!

Gus getting active

It occurred to me today that Gus really has been developing a lot in the recent weeks.  He now LOVES to stand, and wants to stand all the time.  He tries to stand up on his changing table, in his crib, on drawers and cabinets, steps, almost everything.  He especially loves to stand by my Tupperware...and help me organize it!  Here are some pictures of our busy little guy at it this morning.

I also bought him a little scooter thing today....and he has that in the kitchen now too.  He hasn't quite figured out how to go forward yet, but he is already "hell on wheels", cruising backwards and brrm brrmming all the time.

We love you all,
Nancy and Gus

Just one picture on a beautiful evening

Well, we went through a cold few days, but today was beautiful.  Bill is at a happy hour with co-workers, so Gus and I are having a little date night.  We ate dinner and then sat out on the lawn.  He was happy to be outside.  I only snapped a few pictures and here is the best one.

We miss you all,
Nancy and Gus

A few of the best pictures from our Easter Weekend

It was another fun trip.  We are home now, and much the same.  Gus in balancing on my knee, "organizing" our desk, and I am still dealing with pregnancy sickness.  Bill has a very busy week, and it is cold here, but hopefully it will warm up soon.  I am itching to get planting!  

Gus on a Gus-sized brum-brum!

Saturday morning breakfast...Gus found the carmel!

And because he hadn't had enough sugar yet, we let him decorate cookies...and Daddy decorated him a little bit.

Then, after a nap, Gus when for a 4-wheeler ride to daddy.  What can we say, the little boy is in love with the 4-wheeler.  We hope you are ready for lots of rides in June, Uncle Jason!

With my favorite lady, Grandma Anne, after the Easter Vigil.  We left Gus at home with Auntie Raterra.  

An Easter Gentleman!  After the 7am mass.

With the Lanoues!

Our family...Bill are I are feeling a little sleepy in this picture.  We had gone to the vigil, gone out afterward, to bed around 1am, and then to the 7am mass.  Yikes!

One of my all-time favorite pictures.  Gus's first peeps, and from the way he took them down, they won't be his last!

With grandma

On the Lanoue Farm.

We love you all, and happy belated birthday Bubba!

Easter Family Pictures

Here you go mom!  Here are all of the family pictures we took this weekend, unedited.  I was going to edit, but I am sick again this morning and Gus is ready for his nap.

Happy Easter Everyone!  Many more pictures from this weekend coming soon!
