Collins Family Newport Beach Vaca.




















WE went to Newport Beach with the whole Collins Clan. We had so much fun with everyone. Thanks to Jono's parents we were able to still get together as a family. We were just missing them, but can't wait until they can join us next summer when they are home from Russia. (: We had fun just hanging out at the Beach every day, all day, and went on many fun bike rides with everyone. The adults even had a fun crazy time going on midnight bike rides almost every night. So much fun to hang out with everyone. Can't wait until next year!

Cute Boys...





video

Sawyer is 8 1/2 months now and has 4 teeth. I love them. A few weeks ago he started a new thing where he cocks his head back, smiles really big with his eyes squinted. He will do it anyone who smiles at him. He is so fun and growing so quickly. He also started a new thing within the past few days where he will put his head to the side (in video). The boys were just having fun in the morning playing in the laundry basket. They are so much fun, I love these moments.

p.s. so i took this video with my digital camera and I forgot that When I turn the camera vertically it looks fine when you are recording but it is actually recording it horizontally. Oh well, its still cute.

Two Buds!



Can you guess who these to little squirts are? My brother Jeff sent it to me the other day after finding it in a pile of old pics. I think it is so cute of us. His little arm around me is so cute. What a sweet brother. He still is. Thanks Jeff I am glad you are my brother too.

I have a Handy Man!




Jono and I decided on a whim that we thought it would look good to put up some wood paneling on our bedroom wall behind our bed. THen Jono had the idea to put it in the kitchen where we have a little window seat. So he woke up one early saturday morning, started measuring and off to Home Depot he went. He is such the handy man! He did it all from scratch. I love how it turned out!! THanks to Jono he has made our home our own by ALL of his handy man skills. I must say I have my own Handy Many. Thanks Jono for all you do to make our house cute. Now I just need to add things here and there to make it complete. A pillow in the pillow case on the bed would be good, oh and maybe a shelf above the dresser to put some fun stuff on. (:
p.s. Sorry Ash, I was a bit of a copy cat on the bird canvas pic. I just love it and found it on sale a while ago. (:
