Good at Goofy

Our house is seriously good at being goofy - hence the title of this entry.
Nora got a new car seat for Lisa's car and I got a little crazy with the Exacto on the box the car seat came in...we made Nora a little fort.
She thought it was hilarious. So much for buying real toys...

I'm not to old to play with a ghetto cardboard box.

Hello Mommies!

Playin' Around

We've been laying low since our North Dakota excursion. We're looking forward to next weekend's annual "Johnson/Radke Palooza"
Here's Nora playing 'Peek-a-boo' with Mercedes.

Cede can definitely not see me...

Chillin' on the bird bath.

Oh look, mommies flowers. I like to rip them out of the garden.

Mohawk time! Nora is still our little water baby.


Mommy and her babies. This is actually the norm. We should really consider getting a baby bjorn for Tank. So funny. Lovely Saturday morning cartoons!

Here's a video from our North Dakota visit. Grandma Bette had Nora cracking up. It's so cute.

North Dakota - Hangin' Out

The green stroller you see here was actually Lisa's stroller as a kid. Nora was obsessed with it. Only probably was that it was quicker than she was, so we had a couple spills...

We broke the trip up half way so we got to stop at Grammie Jan's to and from Hazen.

Me and my Grandma Bette.

My new horsie!

Hanging out with my Grandpa Dale.

Following my cousin Kendall.

All the girls played in the pool in the backyard. It helped to beat the HOT HOT HOT weather.

Ava and Clauda.

Grandpa and Dale and all the babies.

North Dakota - Nicole and Mitch's Wedding!

Claudia and Lisa at the wedding reception (sorry for the reverse order, my loyal followers)

Bride and groom dancing away...

Lisa & Lee with their cousins Shannon and (wife) Karna.

Lisa dancing with North Dakota's finest two stepper, her dad Dale.

Here is Nora in her pretty princess dress. Uncle Dennis was walking her all around.

Dean and Marty (Bride's parents) and the happy couple (niece and official nephew) Nicole and Mitch.

Here they are gettin' hitched. ;)

Our family all dressed up!

Before we entered the church. Sounds scary. But, you would have been scared to knowing there was no A/C. :(

North Dakota - Great Grandma Bonding

We went to see the (great) grandma's while we were in North Dakota for Nicole's wedding. Nora just loved on both of them. :) Here she is with Grandma Striegel.

The ladies in Carson. We went out and had a yummy lunch in the big town of Carson, ND. It was really cute.

We got to visit (great) grandma Johnson in New Salem. Home of the great "Salem Sue."

Family portrait. :)

Birthday 2 (of 2)

Nora had her own personal carnival for her birthday (or the Ramsey county fair). Lee, Shell and the kids came and we all went together. Here she is with her Uncle Lee.

The girls!

Bravehearts Lisa and Michelle.

Family photo time!

Birthday Cake time! It was a delicious strawberry cake. YUMMY!

Chowin' time...
