I have decided in the past week though to embrace social media. Seems the only wasy people communicate anymore is through electronic devices. I'm now part of not only the Facebook world, but also the Twitter world and the Instagram world. It's a learning process. If I had to guess, my 6.5 year old is probably more proficient at any of them, even though she has never actually done them, but I am going to give it a go! I am a stay at home mom, in small town southern Minnesota. I have time to update people on our mundane lives.
Some highlights of the past five years...
**2010: moved from the frozen tundra of Duluth, Mn all the way to Fairmont, MN. Small farm town 10 miles from the IA border. Matt grew up here. I grew up 50 miles north of here. It was time to return to our roots.
**2011: We welcomed daughter +2 into the world. She came in quick and has been on the go ever since! Sophia is our sweet and stubborn one!
**2012: Audrey joined our family, making it complete. She is our spitfire and we already dread all the trouble she is potentially going to get into.
*2013: Ironically nothing stands out. I am positive we must have highlights, but I am drawing a blank.
**2014: Allie entered kindergarten. As I write this, the school year is coming to a close. Sad that she is growing up so fast but love watching her evolve! Matt decided to become volunteer fire fighter too. On top of his 9-5 job and farming, we don't see much of him!
Our lives in a nutshell. We are crazy busy. We have our ups and downs. But we are family, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Stay tuned for updates!

I know I have no excuse for the fact that I have not updated this in months. But we have been busy...keeping up with a one year old, traveling through snow storms for the holidays, working full time, making house plans and moving arrangements...Yes, I have finally found a free moment to update our lives and pics of Allie while she is currently intrigued with the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's (I'm so excited about that too since I love that movie!)
Our holiday were good, and it was nice to be able to spend time with both families. I am however looking forward to next Christmas when travel time doesn't make up most of the weekend and we don't have to worry about storms quite as much!
House plans are coming along. Final drafts are nearly complete and I have even started working on choosing colors, appliances, and all the other small stuff! I've been told no last minute decisions so I'm getting an extra big head start!
Other than that, things are good. Matt got to go to the final regular season Vikings game with Nate, he is ice fishing this weekend. I have a girls shopping weekend planned with Kate the beginning February. The rest of our time has been spent hanging out with Allie. She is a riot now...so many new words and always has a smile and a giggle. At her recent 15 month check up (which was a month late so she was 16 months) she weighed in at 21 lbs and is 2'7" tall. Still lean and mean but has an attitude or "allitude" as we like to say. She definitely has a strong willed personality and knows what she wants! Below is a little compilation of the pre holidays and the holidays.
Getting ready to go Christmas shopping with mom. I think we got just about everything done that day!
The new red (original) Radio Flyer wagon. Sure can't wait to move to the farm and ride in it all summer long! Hopefully Grandma is ready for lots of walks with me!
Opening a Christmas present at Grandpa & Grandma's house.
Now, time to get ready for the big game. GO VIKINGS!! And yes, I promise to update this more frequently!

Happy Belated Halloween! I'm sorry this has taken me so long to post but it has been a very busy month. We hope ya'll had a great holiday and are ready to gear up for our fave Turkey Day!
Matt and Allie carving pumpkins. Allie wasn't much help as you very well can imagine!
Our little lady bug.

But until next time...
PS: Allie had her 1 year check up on Friday. She weighed in at 19 lbs 3 oz & was 2'5" tall. That put her in the 25th percentile for weight and 75th for height. Lean and mean!
