White Trash America

We were looking over our blog today and decided that we look entirely too yuppie. We don't want people to get the impression that we are fancies. The following pictures will hopefully convince you all that we, in fact, lean to trashies. It will also give you a smattering of what we have been up to for the past couple weeks.

Obviously, Jesse. Note in this picture the following:
1- Jesse's pants. Although he would like to think that the hipster kids would appreciate the brown, fuzzy patch/pocket and make his pants look high-end-gangsta', it really is nothing more than a crappy patch put on by el-cheapo so that he won't have to go buy a new pair. He would like to mention, the brown fuzzy pocket is completely functional. This material was from an old curtain that used to hang in Finn's room.
2- Sunglasses- This is actually a pair of sunglasses that G-ma Kris got after her cataract surgery a few weeks ago. Jesse thinks his boy Kayne would appreciate these but this is debatable seeing that the brand "Eye Shield" is not exactly dope.
3- Location- Laramie, WY. Just the fact that we were there says a lot about us.

Lest you think Jesse is the only trashie, a picture of Lindy sporting the eye shields. We were a little hesitant to post this picture because she is talking on a cell phone, maybe giving you the impression that she is fancy. She cusses on the phone all the time.

We were in Denver last week, totally mooching off our good friends, Nic and Casey. Here is a picture of our evidently homeless little boy jumping on their trampoline.

This really isn't too trashie but the fact that Jesse thinks he is really a rock star when he is playing this game isn't too fancy either. Finn was totally rocking as well, despite what you might think after this picture and his crossing legs pose.

This is in Denver at our friends' home, scooting around with baby Ashly. We let our booger tromp around in his diaper anytime, anywhere.

Yep, that's us. The family that lets their kid play in the fountain at the nice mall. The floor gets all wet and then we joke about somebody slipping and falling on it. We laughed even more when a sweet little old lady walked in that direction a few moments after we left the soggy mess.

We have crazy time a lot. We just say, "Finn, time to be crazy," and let what will be, be.

We are done with the trashie and fancie talk now. Hopefully we have gained a little street cred. This is a picture of Finn Diego and Maddi hitting the slide in Denver. Jesse had a week off so we took advantage and drove out there to see friends with babies that were born after we left. We had a great time and plan to mooch off everybody again soon. Jesse mentioned that he really felt sick as they were driving into town because he loves Denver so much. It was 70 degrees while we were there. Coming back to freezing, snowy O-town was a little bit of a downer.

At the Denver Zoo with Blake and metal gorilla.

A weird animal. If you know the name of this beast, you are the winner.

Lastly, Neil and Becky jamming. Becker looks like she is in a very happy place and Neil looks like he plays this way more than he admits. We spent a couple days in Salt Lake after our Denver trip and may have to post more pictures later- we are tiring fast.

New year, New baby, New age.

It has been an eventful last few weeks. We went to Pocatello to go visit Jesse's sister Rachel who just had a beautiful little girl. It was so fun to get away for a day and hold a new baby. Finn had so much fun playing with his cousin Ava. She is such the little mother and would always keep Finn in take and tell him when it was nap time, time to eat, or take a bath. She is just too cute. Lindy's Dad and his wife came up from Richfield to celebrate a late Christmas, and while they were here we went sledding and enjoyed a nice dinner out at Iggy's. Lindy also turned 28..... and was spoiled rotten which also included 3 birthday parties. So it has been busy around here... but lots of fun.

I stole this off of Rachel's blog. But this is beautiful baby Maela

And the cute as always Ava... This was after her and Finn were jumping on the bed all morning!

Opening presents with Grandma and Grandpa Freeman, and also Jeff, Taisi, Braxton and Kennedy.

Finn's first sledding adventure

That is really Jesse with his traditional Christmas beard... which it is always my birthday wish for him to shave it right back off!

My sweetest baby


These are random...but fun. This is Finn dancing to his favorite song "Low" by Flo Rida!

Showing off his mad break dancing moves!

This picture just makes me laugh.

This is a video of Finn doing Head Shoulders Knees and Toes!!
