A few things I failed to mention...

First of all, we had a great Easter. Abigail enjoyed her first Easter egg hunts.
She was a natural. We still have jelly beans coming out of our ears from all the eggs she found at Grandma's house.
The next thing I failed to mention... A couple of weekends ago Charles ran another
half marathon. Without me this year :( He ran the same one that we did last year.
I didn't get any good pictures of him running, lets face it,
we are lucky we caught more than a blur :)
We had A LOT more people run this year!! Some 10k some half marathon, but we had a huge group of friends and family and had a lot of fun.

What about us? Well, the three of us made terrific cheerleaders.

Which brings me to the last thing I have failed to mention.
Yeah, there was a reason I didn't run. Baby Himmer #2 is on the way.

Since you asked...

yes i know, the picture has nothing to do with the post...

Since we decided to make our blog private, we've had a few of you asking why we decided to make the switch, so I'll give a quick explanation. I've been thinking about it for a while, as more and more of my friends go private, wondering if it is something we should do. I never really felt like it was too big of a deal, and that if something happened that made me feel like we should, then I would do it.

Well, last week Charles took an hour from work and went to an internet safety class put on by someone who used to work for the police department and did a lot of work basically hunting down internet pedophiles and things like that. She told some pretty eye opening stories about things that have happened in our sheltered community. Charles came home and told me about some of the things he'd learned and we decided that if we waited for something to happen that made us take our blog private, that would be silly.

I have never been very cautious about what pictures I put up, or what I say about our lives in our blog, and I don't really want to have to be. The whole reason we have it is so that our close friends and family that don't live around us can stay up to date on us, and especially our growing Abigail. This way, we can keep our family in the loop... and keep the crazies out.

iPhone pics

I love having a camera always on hand with my phone, it helps me snap a quick picture now and then without being noticed. Not the best quality... but oh well :)

This is how Abigail relaxed while we listened to Conference last weekend. Nothing like a good wood floor to cuddle up on... silly girl.
Ok, so maybe my snap shots don't always go unnoticed... she was ready for these.

Sometimes it isn't about what is IN the picture...
but it is about what is NOT in the picture.

This is what is left from Abigail's snack today. Because of Abigail's profound fixation with Sesame Street, and especially with Elmo, I got her these crackers last time I went grocery shopping. They are cheddar crackers that come in two shapes... Elmo, and Big Bird. Same flavor, different shapes. Well, Abi will only eat the Elmo's most if the time. She either tries to feed me the big birds, or she just leaves them alone.

This girl LOVES Elmo.
