Addie and Liam

Sweet Landon :)

We had a nice weekend... Date night on Friday (thanks, Mom!), scrapping with my mom on Saturday, and lunch/Vikings game with the Marsh clan today (pictures above).
Two funny stories...
Addie enjoys dancing in our bedroom because there's a cd player in there. Well last night, while home with Brandt, he caught her dancing in front of the mirror in our room. When she saw that he had 'caught' her, she closed the door on him! She wanted privacy :)
Addie has a habit of grabbing at the tall blinds in the living room. We tell her "no" and she steps away. Or she starts to slowly grab a blind and glance at us, testing us, and waiting to see if we'll say "no" again. Well, today Brandt started slapping her hand when she touched the blinds. He did it a couple times and she got the hint. Later this evening, though, she grabbed the blinds again. We both said "no" and she slapped her own hand and walked away! We kept straight faces until she wasn't looking at us, but then we had to laugh. So cute :)

We always pray before meals, but usually Addie pays no attention. But two days ago we made the effort to teach her to fold her hands and 'pray' with us. So one day later, she is praying all the time!! She folds her hands, looks at us, and waits for us to pray. Then she proceeds to clap when we say "Amen." Clapping for God, I suppose! I'm sure He enjoys that :) So this morning, as we sat down to breakfast, Brandt and I just started talking, not realizing we had forgotten to pray. We look at Addie and she has her hands folded, waiting for us. So we prayed together. Then she was satisfied and began eating. She kept us in check this morning :)

Well we did it! We are Northshore Inline Marathon finishers!! This was us before the race began, both going on very little sleep...

This is us with one mile to go!! Yeah :)

All done and sporting my "free" long-sleeve T-shirt!
Amber and I finished in 2 1/2 hours exactly. It was a blast! Plan on doing it again next year :)

Addie's stats at 15 months:
Height- 31 1/2 inches - 70-90th Percentile

Well, the week has flown by and we are headed to Duluth for the weekend. Amber and I will be rollerblading in Grandma's Marathon on Saturday morning. 26.2 miles!!! We've been training (sort-of), so I feel we're ready :) Just nervous about the weather... it's supposed to rain. I'll take some pics of us in our helmets! Hope everyone has a nice weekend.
