Bowling Bonanza

So the GOOD and BAD things about a test day are:

BAD: Christian is stressed all week up until he takes his test (or rather until he gets his score back)

GOOD: Christian usually comes home early from school and we can spend the day with Dad having FUN. Yeah!!!

Well today he came home at 10:00am-right after his test and we decided to go bowling with the Summers...

Being that Landon is obsessed with balls (as a boy should be) he loved bowling!!!

Landon is on the move...



February 25th was an exciting day at the Tolboe house. Landon took his "official" first steps. He has been trying for a while to get the hang of walking and Christian and I got the camera out and documented this milestone. He isn't to excited to walk because he has fallen quite a few times and is a little leary about the idea of using his two chubby legs to get him around.
He turned 10 months on the 25th and is right on schedule with his big sister. Brooklyn started walking around this same time as well.

Here is a video of the little Man struttin' his stuff...

Earlier in the same night we had a little streaker in our house. Landon has had a bad diaper rash from trying some new foods and so he needed a little airing out. So this next little bit is a little "PG-13"

BEWARE




"what are you looking at?"

















"Yeah, you think I'm sexy..."

DMU Winter Gala 2008


Christian and I went to the DMU Winter Gala and had a blast. The food was great and of course the dancing was awesome! Christian and I busted our moves out on the dance floor and had a great time!
We hope to see you all there next year...you know who you are.

Science center

The greatest thing on a 10 degree day is to go to the Science Center of Iowa!!! Brooklyn absolutely loves this place. She could spend hours here! We went a lot last year and have only made it twice this year. The only thing is I wish they would change things up a bit and put up some new things to do.


I have complete POWER!!! And a cheesey smile!








































"Whats the weather, whats the weather?"
"Is it rainy is it snowing, whats the weather Brookie Babe."
Just a little song... do you like it?
-Channel 13 News sometimes broadcasts the weather from the Science Center and here is Brooklyn trying to be a Meteorologist.







Landon and Brooklyn checking out the frog. I couldn't get it on camera but the frog kept licking the glass right in front of Landon!!!

Brooklyn doing a puppet show for Mommy and Landon. She loves putting on a show no matter what it involves!!!

Anniversary


Christian and I were married on Valentines Day, 2003. Five Years ago!!!
What a wonderful day that was!














































We always celebrate it early or late because of the big hype of the holiday and the jacked up prices so we celebrated this last weekend! We went to Meskwaki- http://www.meskwaki.com/hotel.html
It is a Casino and Hotel with a Spa as well. Well we didn't go for the Casino, we went for the Spa. Christian and I received a full day of pampering which included Massages, Facials, Manicures and Pedicures and time in the Hot tub and Sauna!!! Then stayed the night in the hotel. OH BABY! We had a great time and didn't want to come home. I would highly suggest this great little get-away, just an hour and 20 minutes away.

Thanks to the help of great friends (Megan and Katie) our kids were well taken care of, but I sure missed my baby!!!

It is crazy how fast five years go by! I Love my honey with all my heart and am glad I am with him for eternity! It is funny how we ended up together after knowing each other our whole lives, but I wouldn't change it for the world! He is a wonderful guy and plus we make cute babies!! HEHE

We Love Feet

I have wanted to post these pictures for some time but I had to wait until after Christmas because they were a gift for my Mother and Father in- law. Some of you might already know that my Father in-law is a Podiatrist and I thought that it would be fitting for him to have pictures of his Grandkids feet.
They turned out great!
