For the past three years, Ryan and I have filed our taxes an entire year late. Well, I'm proud to say the cycle is breaking! I just filed my 2007 taxes TODAY!! Only about 6 weeks late, it's a miracle!

Mohawk Brothers

Dad took the boys to get their haircut and they finally got the mohawks they've desired for about a year now! So cute. They LOVE all the attention they're getting! RJ's Mohawk Braden's "faux" hawk

In honor of Memorial Day, Conner wore his Army uniform to church yesterday. This uniform belonged to his big brother, Braden, and was made by Grandma Shirley for Aunt Theresa's wedding 6 years ago.

Prima Ballerina

Blessing Day

Conner's blessing day was a big day. It was also Mother's Day and his big cousin Justin's missionary farewell. It was a happy, memorable day, and we are all so proud of Justin and his choice to serve a mission. He leaves for Brazil today! He is the handsome boy standing next to the baby (not the daddy, the other one!).


After last year's silliness, we thought Braden would opt out of T-ball this year. But no, he insisted he wanted to play. And now the same antics continue, digging in the dirt, looking for bugs, laying on the ground, walking instead of running, anything but real baseball. Dad has taken to standing on the field with him in hopes of keeping him at least facing the right direction and protecting him from any baseballs that come too near.

My Baby is Advanced!!

In our family, we have an ongoing joke where we tease each other about whose baby is more advanced. Well, here is proof that I win, my baby is 5 weeks old and is rolling over! Truthfully, it makes me more sad than exultant, I really want him to stay little.

First Smile

Capturing that first smile has proven to be more difficult than expected. The flash from my camera seemed to only capture a stunned, deer caught in the headlights, expression. But after trying for 3 days, we got something resembling a smile.

Cinco de Mayo

The Pinney's Cinco de Mayo Celebration! We had burritos for dinner and a pinata for dessert.

Pot Belly

Conner is getting too big, too fast. I put this cute little tank top on him for the first time, and it was already too small! He wore it all day anyway, with his little belly hanging out!

Conner's 1st Bath

Conner's 1st real bath and not of the sponge variety, took place on the kitchen counter, where he stared at his reflection in the window most of the time. It went pleasantly enough, until the removal from said tub, then things went quickly unpleasant to traumatic in a matter of minutes.

Conner finds his thumb

I've heard so many arguments about thumb sucking, how it's bad for their teeth and about the yucky germs. But at the end of the day, you can't lose a thumb like you can a binkie, and let's face it, it's just too cute.

Big Sister

Sienna loves being a big sister. She is constantly kissing Conner, singing to him, and always wants to hold him. She tells everyone, including strangers, about her new little brother, who she likes to call Connie.
