Easter Afternoon

Posted by danaandtammy on Sunday Apr 4, 2010 Under Holidays, Kid Pictures, Photographs, Special Events

We celebrated Easter at the Ternberg’s house. It was also Carter’s birthday so we celebrated that too.

Here is a picture of all the kids. This was taken just before the Easter egg hunt.

Kenny found one egg. His cousin Avery did the hiding and set the rules so that they big kids couldn’t take any of the eggs that were easy for Kenny to get.

Kenny quit after his one egg, and did a little posing for the camera.

We couldn’t get the best pose from the two of them, but you can at least see thier Easter outfits.

Uncle Ryan and Aunt Tessa helped us get a family picture.

Landry and Emma had lots of fun.

Official Birthday Celebrations

Posted by danaandtammy on Wednesday Jan 13, 2010 Under Birthdays, Kid Pictures, Photographs, Special Events

We woke up to some birthday celebrations and we ended the day with more celebrations. The rest of the day was also action packed, but that will be in the next post.

This was taken at 7:03 am. The kids are usually up by 7:00 so they were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Princess stuff. All this girl wants is princess stuff.

She did get some non-princess stuff that she enjoys. She has a kitchen in her play area so the mixer will help her make her favorite dish…porridge. She also got some books and some mittens.

Here evening party was with family. Grandma Swany once again provided the cake decorating for the event.

It is a Swanstrom tradition to have some sort of princess cake. I even vaguely remember my older sister having a cake something like what Emma has here.

Emma and Kenny both got birthday candles from Grandma and Grandpa Fish.

The two cousins had lots of fun playing together at the party.

Kenny found the princess coloring book something worth pointing at.

Probably the highlight of the evening…7 princess dolls. All seven of them ended up sleeping with Emma in Emma’s bed.

Besides porridge, Emma does like to bake, so a birthday cake will be a nice addition to her kitchen.

Landry, Emma and Carter really play well together. It is such a blessing to live so close to them.

Getting ready to blow out the candles.

And the official blowing of the candles. She did have two boyfriends when it was all said and done.

Emma and Kenny’s cousin Carter was the bat boy for our local baseball team. He worked along a good friend of his and he said that it was a lot of fun.

Oldie but Goodie

Posted by danaandtammy on Tuesday Jul 14, 2009 Under Video

I was looking through old videos, and this is a classic one of our nephew Carter. He was probably 1.5 at the time. This was the same Carter featured recently in some baseball pictures.

Take me out to the ball game

Posted by danaandtammy on Saturday Jun 13, 2009 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

As promised, here are some pictures from the actual game. The first one is a nice one of Carter hitting the ball.

Here is Carter fielding the ball at second base. He “scooped and fired” to first base and got the runner out. He did a great job following the ball right into his glove and made a great play.

Carter was still playing second, when the short stop fielded a grounder. Instead of a throw, there ended up being a hand off to get the runner at second.
