Tai Anna

Here are a couple of my favorites with Tai. She is so good to just let me take her pictures! And Yes, those curls are her own, no faking! It makes me so jealous!

Janie Bop

I actually had a second to take some pictures of Teya since i failed to take her 2 year pictures. She wasn't really into cooperating, which isn't all that uncommon. But I did get a couple cute ones, with the help of Jake!

I love random pictures. So I thought this was pretty cute! Besides the fact that Teya loves to hang out the window and get all wind blown, these are a couple of my favorite summertime things; my girls and the pivots!

Kendall & Jake

One day we were out fueling the pivots and Kendall came out. They were standing there talking while I was in the work truck trying to keep Teya from tearing apart the already gross and a little repulsive inside of that truck! It was then I realized that I don't have to many pictures of Jake and Kendall together. So I made them stop their conversation for me to take a picture. Now if you know the Quarnbergs, there are 5 total boys (father & sons) and when the camera comes out, each one usually looses all feeling in their face, and you get these great pictures that have no expression! Don't get me wrong, I love those type of photos (NOT)!!! But I was pretty impressed that I caught both of these cowboys SMILING!!!!!

Karter Archie!!!

Kipp, Mal and Karter came up last weekend. We got together to take pictures of him and hang out! I just wanted to post a couple of the pictures that we took to show everyone how well he is doing. I get asked a lot how he is and as you can see, he is getting big and looking healthy! He is now 18 months old and just as full of it as before. He still has a long road to go, but he is definitely on his way!

I have been potty training Teya for a couple months now, but nothing was really clicking. That is until she found a pair of panites on the porch (I have no idea how they got there, really). She decided that this was the day to wear them, although she didn't know how to get them on properly! I don't think that I have laughed that hard for a while.
This is the front view:side view:
and full on butt view:

My eyes are watering right this second from laughing! I just love it! She makes me smile!

A potty training update: Since this day about a month ago (posting it a little late), she has done so good. No more diapers, accidents only once or twice a week, and will actually go get on the potty and do her thing without me knowing and then yell "mommy, potty 'gain"!

Preschool Graduation

In May, Tai had preschool graduation. She was so excited! They got to sing 5 of their favorite songs that they learned over the year and then get their diploma.
Here are the kids waiting to walk in:
One, two, three,four five, I caught a fish alive,
six, seven, eight, nine, ten then I let him go again.
Why did you let him go, because he bit my finger so.
What finger did he bite, this little finger on the right!
Miss Melissa (aka Miss Alissa) was such a good teacher. All the kids loved her!
The graduate and the onery sister! Aunt Cee-cee finally took Teya outside to play on the toys so that we could watch and listen to Tai, instead of crying Teya!

Daddy, mommy & Tai! We love you so much!

New Family Pictures

I wanted to have pictures taken at the last moment before Jake left for Reno and before the barley was cut, so I called my friend Bree and asked her if we could photographer swap, she took ours and I took hers. The weather threatened us all day, but there was a break in the rain for a bit and we decided to go for it. My only complaint was the wind, thus my hair everywhere! I think they turned out good, Thanks Bree!!

Cute pictures of my girls

I haven't taken any pictures of my girls for a while and so I thought it was time! We went up to Grass Valley to change water so I took my camera.

Teya is absolutely infactuated with dead dandilions. Everywhere we go she has to stop, pick one and blow it until every last seed has come off. So you can imagine my frustration trying to get her to focus for just one split second, those things were everywhere! But they make for cute pictures! Tai is my "Little Miss Pose"! Sometimes I have to rein her back in because she gets really posey, but she does good for me!
