A beautiful day to play outside

Hooked on Veggie Tales

Train Time with Nana

Girls Day at Rosedale

Lilija trying to help the bear get out of the tree. Push!
Train time with Nana!
Sweet Calah girl with her stunning blue eyes - wow!

10 Months Old

Yes, I've been slacking on this. Oh well, at least I'm still taking picture of them...just not updating you all! Calah is 10 months old now, and she is quite the handful. Literally. She is tall enough to reach onto our counters in the bathroom, bedroom dresser, etc. Oh, and she's 27.5 pounds, and is wearing 24 month - 2T clothes. Ha!

Here are some of the highlights from the last couple of months:
  • Loves to make messes. As in, will pull every book off of Lilija's shelf, or empty out the puzzle bin.
  • Has said the following words: bagel, wow, and goodbye.
  • Started "talking" on my cell phone or her play phone (video to follow).
  • Is working on getting her top two teeth in.
  • Can stand on her own for short amounts of time.
  • Walks around our coffee table, furniture, and anything else close to her.
  • Loves to dance!
  • Claps and puts her arms up in the air when you say, "so big!"
  • Thinks it's really funny to put her arms up in the air and make YOU say, "so big!"
  • Stood up on her own without assistance from anyone/anything.
  • Love to play "Chuck the nuk" at night. Not familiar with that one? It's where she will chuck her nuk out of the crib or under the crib - multiple times. Apparently, it's like "fetch" for babies.
Love you all,
Carl "Chip," Kysa, Lilija, and Calah

Lilija and Jack - Best Buds

I was going to post this picture, and thought it would be fun to look back at them from a year ago. Wow! They have grown up SO much!

February 2010

Fun with Nana and Bapa

Party with the Wooden's

Well, I don't know if you would call it a party, but we still had fun. Toby ended up getting a staph infection in his leg, so he was down for the count. We stayed up late, Carl made popcorn (SO yummy!) and just had fun chatting away. Sunday was a pajama day, and we lounged around, with the exception of some play time outside with the kids. Good times!

We love our Nisswa family!

Me and the Girls

Friendsmas 2010

Better late than never, right? This is the traditional Group Christmas that has been going on since 2005. Wow! (PS - We still need to fill out the book from this year!) Anyways, the Holidays got busy (as they typically do), and we wanted to have it at Andy and Trisha's new place, so February it was! Much fun was had by all! Oh, and one more thing on the to-do list, we never voted on a white elephant gift winner...

Lilija playing puzzles on a cell phone. Fancy!

Carl and Calah. Goodness my hubby is looking skinny! (insert whistle here)

Trish, Meg, and me

Meg-Meg and Jack. I know Jack doesn't look super happy, but it's such a great picture of MM that I had to use it!

Rog and Scott

Host and Hostess: Andy and Trish

Calahdactyl meets her Pterodactyl

First off, that IS how it's spelled. Love the silent "P." Anyways, Nana and Baba got Calah this Pillow Pet for Valentines. Quite hilarious! As you can see, Calah loves it!

Little Artist

Lilija has become quite the little artist! She got a watercolor book and paint for Valentines, and now it's become a daily favorite. "I paint you a picture. You sit and watch me, okay?"
