Tonight, I was holding Shelby and she was fussing so I started beat boxing (Not great but at least in rhythm) and making Shelby dance/jump to the beat. She thought it was hilarious. Once again Shelby outlasted me and I passed her off to Kim to entertain for a little while. She started fussing again and so I told Kim to beat box. She adamantly refused because her rhythm is as white as her legs are and she knows it. I kept teasing her and telling her to do it, but she wouldn't. After a little pause she said "I'm beat boxing in my head and it is terrible". Even while writing this, I haven't stopped laughing completely, and Kim hasn't either. It is pretty said when you can't even imagine yourself with rhythm.
Classic Kim moment. I love those.

Hello all. It has been a long time since I have done any blogging. I do get hired out whenever we have to put up a video. Kim and Shelby decided to put on a show this evening. Shelby was in a really good mood while in her jumperoo this evening and all it took was a little peak-a-boo to put her over the top. Shelby somehow still finds ways to melt our hearts on a daily basis.

No this is not Bevo this is Jake and he belongs to Shelby's Great Grandpa Leyendecker. Shelby did not seem to mind riding Jake. When Grandpa Leyendecker put Shelby on Jake's back Jake started to walk sideways and it did not phase her. Ross ran around the other side to make him stop. Jake is ride able if anybody is interested!!!
This picture was taken at a family reunion. It was a typical family reunion in that I did not know 95% of the people there. We spent most of the evening talking to Bobby and Rosanne Schmidt. Bobby is my father's cousin but he grew up with Ross' family in Lyford. His wife also grew up in the valley and knew Ross' family. It is a small world. The Schmidts' said to tell everyone in the valley hello!!!
This is right after Jake was walking sideways. Do you see the concern in my eyes???
Here is Shelby's closeup.

Here is her new snorting smile/laugh. This does not do it justice. I will have to get video.

The house. It sits in an L-shaped cul de sac. 4 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths 2500 sq. ft.
The entry with a study to the left and the dining to the right.
The gameroom. Finally the toys will be scattered somewhere other than the middle of the living room.
The pool. For all of you that are freaking out right now that we have a pool with a baby rest assured that I have already checked into what we need to do to kid proof it and for water baby lessons for Shelby. How I would have loved to have this last summer when I was huge and pregnant. I would have been quite buoyant! The backyard is really big and you can not see the large green area to the right where Shelby's swing seat will go. And yes that is the football stadium in the background. It will give a whole new meaning to "Friday Night Lights". I would be concerned except until I was 14 I lived in the house closest to the West side of the stadium. It never bothered us.
The living room from upstairs. There are some big orange stains in the carpet here. My guess is koolaid.
Part of the master bath. I am excited to have two sinks and finally have a tub in the master bathroom...woohoo....
The dining room. Much smaller than we have now. I hope our table will fit.
The pink kitchen. I am not sure what happened but the stove is no longer there. Just an empty space. One of the things I am most excited about in the new house is having a PANTRY!!
The breakfast room. Ross already has a light fixture to replace this one.
The living room.
The master bedroom.
