4 going on 40

Doesn’t Gabe look like a little man in these pictures? Gabe’s cousin Jackson is kind enough to share his hand me downs with Gabe. Well, I should actually say that my sister Kim is kind enough to share. Gabe is always very excited when a package comes and even more excited to wear all of […]

Aw, so cute. I know he looks a lot like Chris, but in the second picture, I can totally see you! What a little sweetie.

Would you rather……

Last summer when my sister Kris and I were traveling together, we started playing the “would you rather” game, and it amused us for a long amount of time. I thought that it would be fun to play the would your rather game on the blog. I have been listening to the local radio station […]

Michael Bolton concert for sure…best remedy for cheese is to close your eyes, put a fist in the air, and sing at the top of your lungs.

I would totally pick Michael Bolton as well. You could totally go with the cheesiness, but I fear that a Kenny G concert would be just plain awkward.

Kenny G….sounds of saxophone is better than Michael Bolton’s voice :p

i totally pick michael bolton- did you see his recent digital short on snl? it was the best. if i picked kenny g i’d be tempted to shove his clarinet down his throat…that thing gets annoying after like 5 notes.

Oh darn… It’s a tough one Kara… My mom killed Kenny G while I was growing up by playing his music tape too many times every day-so Micky for sure.

Although, I thought this was going to be a Dr. Seuss book that asks “would you rather be a bat or a ball..?” and so on. I love reading that book with my kids!

Hope you are doing well!

Would you rather live in Winnemucca, Nevada or Fairbanks, Alaska?

kara - November 30, 2011 - 10:53 pm

Haaa. love the comments. Chris, I have been thinking about this all day, and it was tough, but I would rather live in Winemucca. I just couldn’t do -30 degree weather, and that is the breaker for me.

Um seriously, Where’s the love for the man who can hold a note for a world record of 45 minutes? Please people keep the love for the G!

Ha ha! I’ve actually BEEN to Kenny G concert! Even better – it’s the only concert I’ve ever been to unless you count the free ones at the county fair.

Holly B - December 1, 2011 - 4:57 pm

I’m for Kenny G too! Every once in awhile we have a Kenny G day, it’s a rainy day, go figure, pajamas, usually painting or some craft and lots of sax. I hope I’m not killing Kenny G for the girls like Candice’s mom did!:-)

I love that you never comment on the blog, and when you do, it is to defend Kenny G. That is love my dear :). I didn’t know he held any such record. That is impressive… not that I would want to sit through him playing that note.
I love you. I truly love that your only concert experience has been Kenny G :). How was it??
Haaa… I fear that anything we do as moms will not be looked at as cool by our daughters, so you can’t be doing any harm :).

Michael Bolton, only because I could sing along to some of it and that would make it bearable. Denver swears we saw Kenny G at Six Flags in California, coming out of a restaurant, with a very tiny entourage. I didn’t get a good enough look. Our brush with celebrity.

Beautiful picture. You are amazing.

Sofia at 6 years old

I can assure you that the flower and pose were all her own idea, but I must admit that I am doing a somewhat cheesy pose with a rose in a senior picture. Never too young to practice baby wearing. Sofia wanted us to dress alike and both carry our babies in the picture.  Sofia […]

I love that her favorite place visited is Disneyland. That means Chris did a great thing by sacrificing a trip out here.

Beautiful picture. You are amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Sorry that I have been MIA, but I have just been busy living life without extra time to document it all. We had a very nice and simple Thanksgiving this year. We had a mellow day at home most of the day, went to the studio to […]

The pictures of your kids are adorable, as usual!
It was great to join you in delivering flowers…it was a good reminder of all reasons we should be thankful.

Holly B - November 27, 2011 - 9:25 pm

Your kids are adorable Kara! That is so cool that T.J.’s did that!!

kara - November 28, 2011 - 10:32 pm

Thanks Holly. I am hoping they will do it again!
