Happy 4th of July!





We had the most wonderful weekend! We really enjoyed not traveling anywhere and found great things to do here around town. Friday night we had a babysitter and had dinner with some of my college girlfriends. Colette did great with her new babysitter Kelsey and we had some wonderful adult time. Saturday morning we had breakfast with Tom's parents and Uncle Pickle and then watched the Edina parade. Coley enjoyed the parade especially the clowns and the "horsies"! Saturday we went to a pool party at some friends house and today we hit the Linden Hills wading pool with Sara, Jon and Gracie and then headed to Convention Grill for lunch! We walked down to Browndale park after dinner and found all of our neighborhood best friends there which was a great surprise!! Hope you all enjoyed your holiday too :)

Daddy/Daughter Dance!






WOW!! It's been awhile since I last posted. Finally getting nice here in MN and we are loving our new neighborhood and the local park. We are also happy to announce that we are expecting a little BOY in September! Colette loves carrying around a picture of her baby brother :) Tom and Colette went to their first dance together tonight at the local community center. They had a blast!

Ah, winter in Minnesota!






So we tried to take Coley on an introductory sledding experience in our backyard. One of the BEST sledding hills in the twin cities is literally around the corner from our house, but after watching the kids nearly sledding into the street we decided it best to start in our backyard. I think my daughter is more of an indoor gal like her Mom but Lucy seemed to love it :) When in doubt grab the dog!!!

Happy New Year!


Ugh. It has been so long since I have updated. We've officially moved into the new house and are desperately trying to get it furnished. It is fun and VERY overwhelming all at once. We are slowly piecing things together. We have a wonderful Christmas and spent time with both families. It is so nice not to have a seven hour drive after the holidays. Our external hard drive wasn't hooked up so I couldn't access our iphoto, but I think it is working now so I will get some new pictures up. Hope you all had a fabulous holiday and we look forward to a great 2010!!

Happy Halloween!!!!





Hope you all had a fantastic Halloween! Colette went as Madeline. The Kings also have great news to share as of Friday we had our offer accepted on a house in St. Louis Park, the Browndale neighborhood specifically. We are thrilled. Closing December 1st assuming all goes well :)

Colette and Grace :)






These pictures are actually from my trip to MN in July, but I HAD to post them. They are just too cute!! I actually just got back from an overnight trip to MN today. We are narrowing in on a house there and I had fun looking today. I spent the night with Sara, Jon and Gracie and they as always, were fabulous hosts. I can't wait for these two to spend more time together!!! Oh, and Coley stole Gracie's paci, which she hasn't had since she was about four months old and had it the whole time we were there! Luckily she didn't seem to mind when I finally took it away :)
