Best guy ever!

Last week when i was a little under the weather Tand took Claire on a date... they went to mcdonalds where she became more of a princess than she already is.... it was so cute to see tand getting her dressed and ready to go... i love tand he is so good with claire and takes good care of both of us! p.s claire really likes her princess crown. so this is one of those pictures you can't help but laugh at...yes she has boobies... and i think she likes them too!
I love my family and am so greatful to have the two of them in my life i can't imagine where i'd be without them! they might make me angry now and then but i know that for all the times they make me angry there is 100 time when they make me happy!

hello everyone.... hows its going? not a lot here claire and i came to aunt karis to get some pictures she had on her camera so i thought i would share them with you!  
    this is claire and her friend... 
they are the same age and claire 
is a giant compared to her.

here they are again...
now this one is my most favorite it makes her 
look like such a big kid! kari watched her so tan and i could go on a date.... 
this was the other morning when we came over 
to karis again( we come over here a lot in the mornings) 
and we caught claire playing in the planters.... what a bad kid
on saturday we went on a hike with kari and jd it was fun... 
claire was liken it until the end she had had enough
 so all the way back we had a crying kid (oh the joys of parenthood)  

so as you can see there is never a dull moment and when there is we really enjoy it!
