  • My Niece, Almost 4 Months Old

    We visited my family in GR last weekend. I had fun taking some photos of my little niece, Quinn. I think she is adorable, but I might be a little biased. 🙂  

  • Thanksgiving 2010

    Thanksgiving 2010 @ the Oosterbaan household: The “cool” table. The “other cool” table. The “cool-est” table. The “not cool” table. The football game. The Mexican Train domino game. The crossword puzzle game. Not surprisingly, Little Lance got passed around quite a bit. He definitely has grown since I’ve seen him last! Cute little pumpkin. We […]

  • New nephew: Lance Gavin!

    A new nephew was born 10.19.10 at 6:22pm!  He was 8 lbs 8ozs and 21 inches long. There he is! …and his precious piggy-toes. The light is awfully bright. Big yawn! There are those eyes! Chillin’ with Uncle Matt. Eating my fists. Lance LOVES Auntie Joy. AWWWWW how precious. So tired. Such little hands. Fast […]

  • The Big Day of 2 Arrives

    The Big Day arrives….The Little Guy turns 2! The bday dinner was tasty. And opening presents was tons of fun. Mom and Smoo thought the gifts were quite grand. And then all these folks sang to the Little Guy… And then – *foooo* – time to blow out all 2 of the candles! After dinner […]

  • The Many Faces of The Boy

    The Boy is a busy little fellow, always up to something. He has a Little Bro coming soon.  He seems happy enough about it. Did you know The Boy can sleep on the floor just dandy in a pinch? Or be all cozy tucked neatly into bed.  (Thanks, Daddy.) He can be wide awake and […]

  • The Boy Grows Up

    Time for an update on The Boy, methinks. He is growing up. He likes Matchbox cars. But he is too scared to ride the tractor with Grandpa. …and he doesn’t much like car rides at times, no matter how short the distance. At the neighbor’s tractor show, most of the tractors were too big and […]

  • Out-Of-Towners

    Last week, we had some out-of-towners come visit. Of course, they brought along the little guy who couldn’t resist trying out my grand keyboard. He is going to be quite the musician someday.  I can tell. Then we played a fun drawing game. See what a fun time we had!?  We love having visitors.  =)

  • A Day At the Beach

    After that long wedding day, we needed a day at the beach. See? Standing in heels on narrow stairs all day makes you a little bit looney and beach-hungry. And sometimes it can even rub off on your spouse if you aren’t careful. The beach has a way of making you pretty hungry. There is […]

  • Who knew balloons could be so fun?

    Remember him? Of course you do. Here’s when he meet Kitty. …and here’s when he entertained himself with a balloon bouquet for an unexpected amount of time. As you can see here, he is utterly erupting with giggles. …and batting his arms with glee. …and chasing the bouquet all across the kitchen. My poor camera […]

  • The boy, he runs.

    We went to the Relay for Life event in Cascade on Friday evening, with Heather, Derrick, and Dalton. Heather cut hair — this girl donated 10 inches of hair to Locks of Love. Paul & I watched The Little Guy while Heather cut hair. The boy loves to run. Love the little raincoat and boots. […]
