Ernstrom Family Chatter header image 2

It has been TOO long…

August 23rd, 2011 · 4 Comments · a day in the life, Abby, bridget, family, random, spencer

I keep thinking… I need to get back to blogging. And then I keep putting it off. And putting it off. I’m sure it doesn’t help that I starting writing down a list of things I want to/need to/haven’t yet blog[ged] about. The task of “catching up” so to speak is daunting. Besides, I have facebook now… which means I can upload half a dozen pictures, write 2 sentences and  I’m done. Lazy? Yes, I probably am.

At any rate. Here I am. For now at least.

I updated the header image. See ^^ …the picture now includes the whole family. It had forever been just Dave, Bridget and Me. Alas. Step One. Check. Done. I can end now right? Call it a day? :)

So this post. I thought about calling it “10,00 words” or “Ketchup” as I’ve done in the past when I got behind – but I didn’t want to tie myself down to any particular length or format. Instead, I’m going to start going through my folders of images and posting random pictures and making somewhat random comments about them. You may not see the best image from a certain event or time period. And it probably won’t be fancy or edited. But it will be something. And for now, that’ll do.

Here we go…

Up until now, I think I’ve just posted in progress pictures of the house, but we actually moved in this past October. This is what it looked like then. Its changed a bit since…

This is what Abby looked like in January.

Also in January… 

On Valentines Day, I attempted to take a couple of quick portraits of the kids before church (since I already had the backdrop hung). Some participated more than others. 






In March I took the kids to USU to watch a Helicopter drop 20,000 bouncy balls. It was a physics related experiment.. the kids still talk about it. 

Lucy’s birthday was in March. I made a doggie meat and veggies cake with cheese icing – and she shared it with her friends. It was the most hoopla she’s ever had for a birthday. 

Easter

Movie Night in May…

Our neighbors horse (stud) is a bit of an escape artist. Sometimes we get a “show” when he tries to get past the fence to the mares.

Pool fun in June…

Fun with Sparklers in July…

And that’s where we’ll stop for now, since its almost 11:00 and I need to go to bed. I missed ALOT. I know I did. Abby had a birthday, we got our family pictures taken, my sister got married, another sister left on her mission, we’ve got camping and hiking, participated in a road show, etc… Hopefully that means that there are more posts to come. :)
