We had a wonderful Christmas in Grafton with my family- lots of family gatherings, yummy food, and good times. It was especially fun to see Lauren’s excitement now that she understands the holiday. She loved singing Christmas carols and hymns (her favorites are Frosty and Hark the Herald Angels Sing), she repeatedly asked us to (Read the Rest…)

We’ve been busy traveling over the past couple of weekends and have had fun spending time with our families. It started with a trip up to Grafton that included some time with my extended family- Lauren had a blast with my cousins’ kids and had her first DQ chocolate malt and dilly bar… in the (Read the Rest…)

Our summer travels continue and the last few weekends have included one trip back up to Grafton and two trips to the lake.

    You have had a busy, fun summer! Love all the pictures from the family gatherings.

    It was great to see the pictures from your weekend at the lake! The kids have all grown up so since I saw them last at Lauren’s 1st birthday. Looks like you had a wonderful time even without the nice warm temperatures. Glad the fish were accommodating allowing for some great pics and fish stories. Lauren, you must have lured those fish in with your Dora fish bait:) Love, Nana Jo



We spent the 4th of July in Park River, ND, and had a great day with the Halls. My cousin Bjorn, his wife Sveta and their daughter, Bianca, made the trip from the east coast and we got to celebrate Bianca’s 2nd birthday with her! Lauren loved being one of the gang- my cousins’ kids (Read the Rest…)

    It looks like a wonderful Christmas was enjoyed by all in Grafton! We loved having you at the lake over New Years too. Thanks for all the wonderful pictures — it is so much fun to view them over and over……it’s amazing
    to see how much the girls have grown, and ARE growing! I see changes every time we are together. I don’t think I will ever forget the look on Lauren’s face as she came out of the bedroom after pushing the test button on the carbon monoxide detector:) Fun times. Love you all, Nana Jo

We hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend!  We spent the weekend at the lake and enjoyed the beautiful weather with family and friends.  Lauren liked being in the water and even got a very slow ride on the jet ski.  It was a little harder for Josh and I to sit back and (Read the Rest…)

We started off the new year in Grafton and had a fun time celebrating a late Christmas and New Years with my family. It was great to have Jeff and Jonny home- they loved playing with Lauren and gave her a baby grand piano of her own. She loves dancing to the music! I was (Read the Rest…)

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great time in St. Cloud celebrating Lauren’s first Christmas with family and friends. Lauren enjoyed playing with Great Grandpa Paul in her jumper.

It’s hard to believe Lauren will be a month old this week… it seems the days go by pretty quickly lately and she’s definitely more alert now which is fun. She’s a pretty content baby- we made it through church this morning without even a peep. Her cries are usually limited to hunger or a (Read the Rest…)

2 Weeks Old

By: Steph | Tags: , , , , , , ,

We made it through another week! This week has been much better in terms of adjusting and getting used to each other… that first week was pretty tough (especially on mom). Feeding is going much better, although the frequency is still a little overwhelming, and there are still some scheduling kinks to work on. I’ve (Read the Rest…)

    What an awesome picture!! If you guys took that yourselves, there is no need to refer you to our photographer…we’re coming to the Keck Studio next time around!!

    She is beautiful. Maybe Jack and I can stop by to meet her before school starts up again…

    Take care…

    It can’t be “30″ years . . . seems like only yesterday, right, Nana Jo? What darling babies you were! I remember Grandma Wanda titled that picture
    “Stephanie Sunshine”! She took so-o-o-o many pictures of you, Steph . . .
    How great that “K” Keck has such a photo-pro dad, Josh . . . I’ll want LOTS for my grandma “brag book”! We had such a wonderful Easter with the three (whoops . . . ) FOUR of you here. Thanks for making the long trip up to the “tundra”! Love, Mom

So I think the belly has grown since the last time I wore this shirt! It seems like I’ve gotten much bigger just in the last couple of weeks. And we’re officially into the single-digit countdown… 9 weeks left! The due date is coming really fast which seems a little scary at times, but I’m (Read the Rest…)

    Oh Steph…that belly is so beautiful!! You guys are in the final countdown…enjoy the quiet house…the empty laundry baskets…and your SLEEP!!!! That little miracle is about to turn your world upside down in ways you can’t even begin to imagine…and it’s all awesome!!!! I had a little dream the other morning inbetween alarms that you and I were having a glass of wine and watching Logan play with about a 9 month old little GIRL on the floor…Hmmmmm…we’ll have to see in about 9 months, huh?? The other parts I all believe to be true…the wine and Logan playing with the baby…hahah!!! We love you and cannot wait to meet the little one…and you have never looked more beautiful in the 12 years I’ve known you!!!
