*from my front porch looking in*

"There's a carrot-top that can barely walk, with a sippy cup 'o' milk; a little blue-eyed blonde with shoes on wrong, 'cause she likes to dress herself..."
Well with the exception of the following line, this song epitomizes our little family!! Ha! Our little carrot-top is now 8 months old(okay, so he may not be walking quite yet, but his frequent yoga moves on the floor are hinting that he will be walking in no time! He has the downward facing dog DOWN!;-))

I can attribute my extended blogging hiatus to this little monkey and his stubborn little body that has given him trouble since the day we brought him home! Today he does nothing but smile and yoga around the room! Oh, how we love him!
My little "blue-eyed blonde".....well, would anyone like to throw me a good word to describe her? She is simply breathtaking....this meaning she both takes my breath away (literally!!) by her bottomless tank of energy as well as her deliciously contagious enthusiasm for life. We cover MANY miles in a day!
Last November we were blessed far beyond our wildest dreams (thank you, Pedro!) with a beautiful home and two horses. We are richly blessed with the dearest of friends and family in our lives. From my front porch looking in, life is beautiful!



Dear Friends!
Happy Birthday, Jenna!

It was great to see what you've been up to and how your kids have grown. Where do you live? Two kids is so different isn't it? So much better and harder at the same time.
I love those pictures, especially the one showing off your hair...gorgeous

Hi Kristin!! I sent you a message on facebook but I am not sure if you got it. I don't have your e-mail so I thought this would be the best way to get it to you.

_________________________

Our family is taking turns writing letters to Grandpa and Grandma Bassett to cheer them up and you're on this list! :)Heather said you would be up for it. I hope she asked you first!

You can write them about good memories from their house since you've known them or what you are up to lately. Anything you want them to hear from you! We're all trying to put in a picture of some kind too, old or new. :)

The schedule we have put together is for your letter to be put in the mail this Friday so it will get to them on Monday.

Their address is:
Charles and Lois Bassett
5036 Wolfe St.
Boise, ID 83705

Will that work out okay???
Thanks for helping out!!!
Love,
Erin Case (Bassett)
