Hunter didn't waste any time getting personal with his birthday cake! He didn't even pretend to be modest about it! :)

Shy? What a waste of time!

My favorite shot of the two best looking men I know! Thank goodness they both belong to me!:)
Here's Bailey reuniting with the puppy we "almost" kept. :)

After much internal debate I have decided to join the "blogging community"! No promises as to the consistency of upkeep for this new endeavor, but what the heck, we'll give it a try...

So how does this work? Do I intro my family as if everyone seeing this wouldn't already know of our history? Well... Brandon and I married on June 5th 2004. We have 2 (and 1/2) LOVELY children who I dare say are quite spoiled, but of course we wouldn't have it any other way! Bailey is 2 1/2 and definitely has her daddy wrapped around her sweet and always innocent little finger... Hunter will be the big O-N-E this Friday, August 1st and is COMPLETELY boy (I wonder who he gets that from..??)! He just started walking this past week, and has the cutest drunken sailor footing I've ever seen! And then there is "Landon Steel", who is due November 10th and destined to be a super hero, or so I've been told. :)

Brandon is a student at Thunderbird School of Global Management and will graduate this December (WOO HOO!). I am a busy pregnant mom and preschool-teacher-on-summer-break with obviously not enough to do once my children are sleeping... I have posted some recent pictures of the kiddos from our vacation to Utah and Hunter's pre-birthday festivities. ENJOY!!! :)


  1. YEAH...welcome to the blogging community! You've inspired me...I may have to join in soon and create my own blog.

    I can't believe Hunter is walking all around. Can't wait to see it in person!

    I love you and miss you all so much! Hugs and kisses to my grandchildren! :0)

  2. Erin! Your family is so cute!! I look forward to seeing all the updates! Congrats on everything since I haven't seen you for awhile! You look amazing!

  3. Great pix! Thanks for letting me know about your blog. I've been doing it for about a year now and absolutely love it. Let me know when you need to take a day and drop the kidd-os off at my place!

    Happy Blogging.

  4. Hey! Sorry we didn't get to see you last time you were in UT!! You look so cute and your kids are adorable! I think it's awesome that you're doing preschool like your mom! I bet you're a great teacher!
