So much to say today :)

Last night I took the kids for a long stroller ride around the neighborhoods and it was great. I love September evenings in Oregon! They're really one of my favorite things. It felt especially good because I've been on the mend from having surgery about a week ago and I was finally OUT and about! Yes, yesterday was my first real day of not spending the majority of the day resting. I'm still not lifting the kids or anything too heavy, but I'm feeling great.
When we got back to the house our neighbors were out playing and James was looking so cute sitting in his front yard. Here he's showing me his great stretching skills. :) Look at that toe point! Isn't he such a cute little guy? He's always happy.
And speaking of another cutie who is always smiling, the bw photos are of 4 mo old Jonas. You know, Selah's boyfriend? I'm sure you've all figured that out by now. :) Jonas' mom, Mauria and I are super close friends and she was so sweet to come hang out with me the past few days and we let our boys play and our little ones smile at each other. I love Jonas' striped b/w leggings!
Then the last photo in this line up is for fun. Josh took it of me as I was waiting to go into the surgery room. Too bad you can't see my cute little matching blue booties! Can you say hot?! :) I was pretty nervous. In fact I told the anesthesiologist, as I was shaking on the table, that I wasn't cold but quite nervous about surgery - and then I woke up! :) So weird. I don't even remember falling asleep as I was talking to him.

You do have a beautiful family and take great pictures but I can't believe you wore make-up to have surgery! You've got to be the prettiest patient they have ever had!
PS So glad you are better!
