What’s New at the Anderson’s??

March 22, 2013

Well, after years of debating back and forth we “bit the bullet” and got a dog.  Kirk and I had tried the puppy thing many years ago when Cade was tiny.  It was an outdoor dog which proved to be tough, and in the end I found out I was pregnant with Ella, and the […]

Still Here

March 14, 2013

I guess I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon.  On the bright side, we are still here and have not gotten run over by the wagon!  I have just found that life is busy and sometimes just enjoying my kids is better than taking pictures of them in preparation for a blog post. There is anticipation […]

While the Cat’s Away…

September 28, 2012

What do the girls and baby do while the older boys go camping (BRRRR!)? Kirk and Cade getting ready to “rough it”. We make pumpkin cookies.  (Notice Ella on the iPad in the background?  Keep that in mind.) Lots and lots of pumpkin cookies. Then we take a break to follow through on what Ella […]

I Blew It!

September 11, 2012

It’s amazing to me how someone half my size can well up such strong emotions in me. The first week of school Addie had a hard time adjusting to me spending extra time with Cade and Ella.  I even had extra activities planned for her, but after she was done, she was demanding more attention, […]

If You Ever Thought What You Are Doing Doesn’t Matter…

June 24, 2012

100 years.  My Grandma Clara was born September 6th, 1912.  She’s not EXACTLY 100 yet, but we celebrated her birthday yesterday as that’s when all the family could get together. It’s amazing to think about all that Grandma has seen in her 100 years.  She remembers horses and buggies, and wood burning stoves.  She lived […]

Do You Ever Wonder?

June 22, 2012

Kirk often asks me if I ever look around and think, “How did I get here?”.  He is referring to the fact that we have 4 children and have been married for almost 14 years already!  It is crazy how time flies, and I have been feeling the same way lately.  Cade is 7 1/2, […]

Duluth, MN 2012 Flood

June 21, 2012

It is hard to comprehend the destruction by something as important as water, but after seeing the amazing photos and videos posted by people in Duluth, MN on Twitter and YouTube, it is a reminder of just how vulnerable we can be. My heart goes out to the people in Duluth. These are some of […]

Every year (our 3rd annual) our family and our friends head out to the local berry patch to pick fresh strawberries!  This year my sister and some of her kiddos came with us too.  My dear niece watched Sawyer and Addie while we picked. So, what did we do […]

June 9, 2012

 This is a fun and personal Father’s Day Gift.  Having a 9 month old in the picture made this a little more interesting to do.  I think we’ll print this out and put it into a frame for Kirk’s office! If your up for a challenge you could always try G-R-A-N-D-P-A:)!   Blessings to you […]
