Picture Tag

I saw this on someone else's blog and I thought it was so cute. You put up your five favorite pictures and then tag others. I love looking at other's pictures so this is perfect for me. You will notice that most of the pictures are of Blake but I figured Joe and I barely get in front of the camera anymore. Plus I just think he is pretty cute. So here goes:
When Blake was born he always kept his legs up, ALL THE TIME. I'm pretty sure he was so used to having his legs up and out in me so this just felt natural to him. It took him a long time to figure out that he had room and could stretch out.  All time favorite picture of Blake. He was obviously loving his carrots. I just love his facial expression in this picture. Blake never stops cracking us up and this picture is no exception.  Ok I could have put a picture of me at Lake Tahoe for this one but I don't think you should be subjected to that torture. Lake Tahoe is probably our favorite place in the summer. We are completely bummed that we won't be able to go there this summer. We were talking the other night and Joe and I almost wish that we were leaving later for Phoenix so that we could go to Tahoe a couple more times. It is just so gorgeous there.  This picture was taken last year at the Norby family reunion. It was such a fun week to spend with the family. We got to meet nieces and nephews that we hadn't met yet and we were able to catch up with everybody. I came from a very small family and married into quite a large family and I love it. There are always (fun) people around. What a fun week.  I think this is my favorite pregnancy photo. This is as we are going to the hospital. My water had broken about an hour and a half prior to this picture but I had to make sure that I took a shower, did my hair and that Joe took a shower and shaved. I was so excited to go to the hospital and meet my new little baby. Plus I think I don't look too big in this picture which is what every pregnant woman wants. 
So now you've taken a walk through our lives, let me take a walk through yours. I tag: Jamie, Jenny, Paula, Amy, Summer, Kerstin and Jessica (although you didn't do my last one!), or anyone seeing this that would like to do it. Enjoy!

What a good idea! Your pictures are adorable! Blake cracks me up. I would just like to add for the record that the last picture was taken right after Kristen came home from cleaning the church. Yes, in her nine months of glory, she was breakin a sweat and cleaning up after all of you.

Hey Kristen! I LOVE blogging. I didn't really know what it was when I started it, but I have found and been able to keep in touch with old friend through blogging. Your family is soo cute. I hope you are doing well. I miss Reno. We are coming up next month for my cousins wedding. We need to have a ladies night out or something! Keep in touch.

Oh I love this, I will have to think of what pictures to use. I love all the pictures of Blake, he is such a cute little boy and was such a cute baby, I can't wait to here if you are having a boy or a girl and to see pictures of your new little one when he/she arrives. Also what a great pregnancy picture, I wish I was as cute pregnant.

Blast! I'm sad you are leaving before we are coming up. I hope your move goes well.

Hi! This is Joe's friend Kim again! I was just AMAZED at the picture of you when your water had already broke! YOU ARE BRAVE! I had given birth less than an hour after my water broke! Also, your little Blake is adorable. Congrats on the one on it's way!
