New Bags

Tiffany has some new bag designs out. My new fave is the classy sophisticated, although 
I don't think the picture does it justice. And for the first time ever she is releasing patterns that the public is able to purchase. Everyone go check out her website She is doing a craft show in Nampa Idaho this friday and saturday as well as Nampa Idol. So if any of you are in the neighborhood you should stop by and check out her booth and watch her perform.
 Good luck Tiffany (you will always be my American Idol)

Catching Up

This is an extremely long post, mostly pictures so it isn't all bad. Here we have Emma Baylee and Phoebe at there end of the year sleep over, which according to Emma is one way to have an awesome summer. They made bracelets, ate popcorn and stayed up way to late (I think it was like 12:00 a.m.) Sorry Dawn and Marcie, I hope they weren't too cranky. In the morning we made waffles and smoothies. yummy and then the girls played outside with water balloons. They all ganged up on Gunnar, he was down in the yard and the girls had the high ground up on the front steps he didn't seem to mind it much though. I wish I had pics of that it was too cute. 

And this is what happened that afternoon. On our way to go shopping Emma crashed out in the back of the car, go figure.

This is more summer time fun in Tiffany's back yard. Lee was helping Jason with some demo on the downstairs bathroom remodel. The kiddo's were hot so it turned into an impromptu water day (hence running around in the back yard in there undies) 
Emma "Bored" with the water stands back and observes the rest of the kids.
Hannah only gives "cheesy" cheese pictures for the camera
This is my lanky little dude Gunnar. I think they were starting to get a little tired from all the sun and water.
And what is summer time fun without the good stuff. (hope your mom doesn't look at this Tiff).

My beautiful little Gabbi just 2 days shy of Four Weeks old. I can't believe it has already been a month since she arrived. She is such a good baby. 

This is a compilation of gamer heads. All they ever want to do is play games on what ever electronic device they can get their grimy little paws on (I mean that literally, their hands are always filthy leaving yucky finger prints on everything they touch). Electronics Age here we come.

I hope Tiffany you don't mind me posting "naked" pics of sawyer, but gosh dang it he is just too stink'n cute. Here he was yelling at his mom from the other room. When we went to check on him this is where we found him. Waiting for someone to come and get him down, even though he is perfectly capable stepping down by himself. He is such a spoiled little guy, but with a face like that....
Photo Op. Sawyer fell asleep waiting for mommy to come home. 

This is Emma posing at school after her third grade music program. As a mom it is so much fun to be able to go and support your kids in these school events. They have so much fun and take so much pride in their performances. Lee and I were talking the other day and I realized If we stop having kids now I will only have to go to three more third grade music programs( plus all the other ceremonies and performances and graduations X 4) we all know we go to these school functions for support not for award winning entertainment :) I love being a mom.

We went to the river a few weeks ago to feed the ducks. The poor things have been fed and fed and fed some more. There was literally bread lining the river and all the birds were just swimming away. The kids were kinda disappointed not to see the birds go crazy like before, but we were able to get a few photos instead. Again we have Hannah and her "cheesy" cheese face.
Gunnar is waiting for a few birds to swim past so he can bombard them with bread
Gabbi not really interested in the world yet.
We were able to feed a little family of baby ducks. Hannah called them her tiny's.
Cute boy.

A picture a day.

I find myself taking quite a few pictures lately. What can I say, I think my baby is precious.

Late Nights

Our friends Jason and Tiffany came over for dinner on Sunday. We did stay up kinda late, it being a holiday weekend and all, we hadn't heard from the kids in awhile and when we went to check on them this is what we found.

Gabbi is 3 Weeks old

Most of you probably don't notice the small little changes happening over the course of just 3 weeks, but I can tell you that these moments are fleeting. They only last such a short amount of time. I feel like it is going by too fast to be able to enjoy all of the precious moments. At her 2 week check up she had gained 1 pound, she is more alert during the day, and she already knows that she likes to be held by mom. (not put down in the corner so that I can deter some on coming crisis with one of the other 3 monsters:).  Gabbi sleeps so well. I know I will jinks myself, but last night she slept from 8:30 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. and then woke up again at 7:00 a.m. It is such a blessing to be a mother. I love every moment of it. (Here we have Gabbi Kaye Poston in chronological order from May 5 till May 26)

New Shoes.

Grandma Poston made Gabbi and Presdee some new crocheted sandals. They are so adorable. I want the pattern so I can make them in every color (Oh and it would be a good idea to learn how to crochet) :)

A day at the park

Today (instead of yesterday) daddy had the day off so we decided to go to the "Rock" park. The weather was so warm and the kids had such a good time. Even Gabbi was able to get a little sun.

  Sleeping Gabbi after a hard day at the park.
                        My guys!
Gunnar loves to match whatever
 his dad has or does, notice the clothes.

Mountian View Hospital took some "new baby" photos complimentary, and they post them online. Here is a link to ours if anyone is interested. Baby Poston.  Daddy thinks she looks like a little old man, I of course think she is beautiful. The "volunteers" were  older and didn't quite know how to work the camera. I think grandma shot about a dozen pics before they were able to get this one. Oh well they were like I said complimentary.


She is here and she is healthy and beautiful. Tiffany took some amazing photos for me and so I am cheating and adding a link to her blog so you can all see. Gabbi Kaye Poston. Thank you so much Tiffany.

LIFE! for the past several weeks, also known as sewing, cooking, cleaning, mothering, and lets not forget growing oh so big.

A new addition to the family. No it isn't mine. We have a new COUSIN. Presdee Kaye Poulson
Proud Parents MeriBeth and Tate, exhausted after the many hours of intense labour. Hopefully this will be us in just a few short days.
Emma had her third grade Science Fair at school and this is a picture of her final project. "How do corn kernels pop". If any of you want to know just ask. She is now a popcorn expert.
Baking, one of the many things we have been doing these past weeks. This is a new recipe I found online, and I must say that these cinnamon rolls are way better than Mrs. Powell's, I mean if you don't take into consideration that you have to make them yourself.
A little cat nap.

Easter Morning. (Technically it was Saturday) we gave the kids their baskets early so that dad wouldn't be gone for meetings and miss it all.  They loved all the candy.  Who wouldn't?
On the way to Grandma's house for the big Easter egg hunt, Looks like a bunch of gangstas or something!
Sunday Morning. I actually got several good pics of them standing together in their new duds. Yes I will take credit for the outfits. I made skirts and Bows for the girls and I made Gunnar a new Tie. (so he didn't feel left out) I also made these cute crayon roll up pockets to Carry to church, that I put in their Easter Baskets, (conveniently I didn't get any pics) they were also a big hit. 

At the egg hunt.
Surprisingly enough Hannah did really well finding eggs.

Oh and this is me, growing bigger every stinking day, wishing that the baby was ready. Don't let the smile fool you, I am miserable. Only 2 more days to go though. The Doc said he would induce me on Tuesday if I wanted? Wooo Hooo I get to go to the hospital the day after my birthday. Happy Birthday to me....
This is Gun and Hanns enjoying being outside. They found some worms and had to "inspect" them
And this was the next day, recouping after all the sun and fresh air. 
I hope you have all enjoyed this short recap of our life lately, cause I will probably not post again until "baby" comes and we can readjust and stay sane with 4 kids at home. And yes it is "Baby" we still have not agreed on any names so if any of you have any good suggestions please let me Know.
