Monster Update

Since I've sort of skimmed over the last 5 months or so I thought I'd do a quickish update for all those that have been pestering me...

We all went to Mesa for a Comm. conference where Scott presented some papers and we got a little tanner. We got to hang with Robert Bradford and Mary McCoy (and crash at her place-thanks!), stay with the Eberhard's (it was wonderful!) and pick their backyard grapefruits, eat a giant lemon, and ride on a tiny train. It was a really fun trip.

Went to the Omaha Zoo for the first time - let a hippo taste Jane
and taught her where milk comes from...
...Jane learned how to fly at the local Children's Museum and
experienced her first Institute class with daddy.
I experimented with making felt bacon and eggs, Jane met Clifford the Big Red Dog and hunted for eggs at Barnes and Noble and in our front room; Jane got her first My Little Pony, learned she can fit an entire Cadbury egg in her mouth without mommy noticing, saw the Easter Bunny, decided she doesn't like those cheap hallow chocolate bunnies, and learned how much fun it is to dress up.

Then mommy and Jane went to Bellevue to visit family. While there we went to the Point Defiance Zoo and saw a Beluga whale, visited with Grandpa Steve, visited with Great Grandpa Houston, mommy fell in love with a cupcake, Jane played a lot with Grandma Houston, partied hardy for uncle Jimmy's 22nd birthday, had fun at Pike Place, played at Grandma Ebertings, Jane got 2 fat lips (on at Dairy Queen and another at Kelsey Creek Farm), played at the Lake Sammamish beach, swam at Samena, and mommy had fun bonding with her wacky sibs.

Scott gave me long naps and a great dinner for Mother's Day, Jane pilfered our dinner tomato for a snack, I went with my friend Jentry to the ends of Nebraska, we tried a local chicken joint (not good), Jane dressed up some more and then Scott turned 28.

Our friends Luke and Bridget Crane came to visit yours truly and we had so much fun, including visiting the Omaha Zoo! Heather turned 29, then was called to work with the Young Women at church, Jane loves nursery and doesn't care to say goodbye when we leave her (sniff), Jane likes to wear mommy's shoes, take "shawas", play in any water she can find, and help mommy in the kitchen.

WOW!! I didn't think so much time had passed! Jane is getting huge! A lot has happened with your family! Congrats! It's always nice to pop in and see what you're up to!
