Killing Time

The last couple of weeks cruised by. It is weird thinking that we only have two weeks left in Denver. Everyday has been pretty much the same lately. We kick off the mornings watching the Wiggles with Finn, talk about starting to pack, forget about starting to pack, find a way to get out of the house, worry about moving, watch crappy evening television, then go to sleep. Somewhere in there, Jesse has squeezed in the last few days of medical school and we have managed to eat way more than we should. Here are a few pictures of us killing time.


"Take me to your leader!"



At the zoo.


This is the batch of strawberries Lindy threw together for her last of the weekly "The Bachelor" and "Dancing With the Stars" parties. She has some ladies get together every Monday and they all squeel about the dancers and the loose ladies on the worst show on television, The Bachelor. May we all sleep better knowing that the most dramatic rose ceremony in bachelor history ended in true love once again.


This is Finn bright and early in the morning. As you may be able to tell, he is waking in his parents' bed. If you have any advice for our parenting skills, go eat a fart.


Jesse turned 29 on April 29th, his golden birthday. He celebrated the day by waking up early and going on a 29 mile bike ride. He came home to a lit up slab of German pancakes that were quite delicious. He milked the golden birthday thing for a whole week and was spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Unfortunately for him, the golden birthday thing eventually wore off and now it is back to being the grubby little grunt that he is.


Finn with Blake, his buddy who is 4 months younger than him. Finn had his 18 month appointment a few days ago and we are happy to report that he is now a whopping (drumroll-tttt-ttt-tttt-ttt-tttt-t-t-t) 19 pounds. 19 HUGE pounds! What a little squirt.




Finn with his potential future wife, Maddi. Sadly, these two may have to struggle with a long term relationship because we have been unsuccessful at talking anybody in to moving to Ogden with us. People think that just because they have jobs and family elsewhere, they can't move to O-town. Ridiculous.





Lest you think that life is all roses, here is our little booger's new favorite thing- the totally fake whiney fit. To add sound effect to the picture above, let out all your breath except for the last 10%. Push the last bit out as fast and as hard as you can, with a touch of a high pitch. This is awesome.

this is the cutest blog ever! I'll be sad when you go- Blake and Finn are the CUTEST little boys I've ever seen!

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who has a fake tantrum thrower. I wonder if Sebastian or Finn is whinier. Maybe someday we'll have to get together and have a contest!

Super cute pictures!

Your little Finn is so stinkin' cute! Brynna is pretty small too. She only weighs like 18 lbs! I'm glad you found my blog, it's fun to see what you've been up to. Feel free to visit often, it's good to hear from you! :0)

Jesse you are so dang funny! I love the go eat a fart comment. Oh my gosh I'm still laughing. By the way my chubby 6 month old is already 17 and 1/2 pounds. I think it's okay if they're small cuz maybe you can actually pick them up without getting a hernia.

I've finally found another person who watches the Monday night double feature of Dancing with the Stars and Bachelor......just in time for it to end. I pretty much thought I was the only one who watched it. Jesse- do you remember puzzle/tv Thursday nights at Snow? Those were the days. Happy Birthday by the way....you're getting so old! Good luck with the move!

XOXO

Good luck with the move.

THANK YOU for showing Finn at his best. I love the whiney pictures. We have many of Mason as well. His big kick is now the run away and throw myself on the closet piece of furniture while whining "no no no" in my most pitiful voice. I love dramatic children. Good luck with packing or thinking about packing. I don't envy that. *Lenna

Maybe I should have attended the monday night television parties. Those strawberries look so good! It has been a fun ride. Thanks for all the good times. Look out Utah!

Tyler said...

Wow, Jesse do you really think it is healthy to be riding 29 miles at your age...? How time does fly! Finn is even adorable when he is throwing a tantrum. Lindy, I am very impressed with your strawberries and your taste in television!

Shauna said...

Good luck with the move to Utah!!! And...happy birthday Jesse! You and Casey are so OLD...J/K! We'll have to stop by the next time we're in town. :)

Just a thought... said...

Hey Jesse I'm way too old to try and replicate the "totally fake whiny fit" ...sound experience. I could possibly pass out or have a stroke in the process. Since I'm pretty sure you don't want that on your conscience, I think you should just video Finn during an actual "fake whiny fit" so we can all experience it without any ill effects.

Wow, you have such a cute kid. And those strawberries look AWESOME! I'm sad we didn't get together before you left but I'm super excited for you to be in a new house (to you) and in Ogden near family. I hope it all goes well for you. We will miss you!!!
