Wake-Up, Jacob

When I was little, my grandma would sing this little ditty to me when she would come in to wake me up from a nap: "Wake up, Jacob, Daddy shot a bear. Where? Where? Over there." Don't ask me where she got it from but I remember her singing it to me all the time (i must have slept alot!). Anyway, that story had nothing to do with this picture except this is right after Ellis woke up from her nap. How would you like to wake up to this everyday? :)

Catching Up

I haven't posted for a couple weeks, so I just wanted to catch you up on what we have been up to:

1. A couple weeks ago, we went to a Hockey Game with Staci and Greg Mattson at the new Kent Arena. It was so much fun - not to mention the three simultaneous fights that we saw. I love hockey!

2. We went and saw our neice, Madison, play basketball. It was a lot of fun and we were glad we could support her!

Ellis got so freaked out everytime the buzzer rang - so we had to cover her ears.

3. We went out to dinner at Siam on Broadway (a Thai restaurant) to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday

4. I took some pics of Ellis in the bubble bath - she is so adorable!

5. Oh, yeah - we found out we are pregnant! :)

Photo Tag

For this tag, go to your pictures, select the 6th photo in the 6 folder. Then tag 6 of your friends.

Here is my photo: it was taken last year at the Seattle Aqaurium - we went with Sefa, Joe and Feki. Loni is using his knowledge of 'everything' to inform Sefa and the boys of what is going on (actually I don't know what he is doing - if anyone has any funny captions for this picture - leave a comment with it)!

I tag - Kandy, Kyla, Sara M, Jenny, Bekki, Cheris and Ashley.

Since the day was so nice today, we drove up to Monroe to pick up Loni's motorcycle which we have been storing in Jesse's garage through the winter. It was a fun visit complete with laughs, going to the park and eating. Thanks Jesse and Kandy for letting us visit!


It has been a while since I posted a video of Ellis, so I thought I would get her counting. She is NOT a performer, so I am surprised she gave me what is in this video. Either way, it is adorable and she is just so cute!
