American Idol


Over the past 7 years I have watched american idol with fascination and amazement with the talent that america has!  After a month of watching the show I usually find a couple singers that I just "click" with and become a fan throughout the whole entire show.  Well, this year  is different.  Instead of a "couple" favorites, I have one.  One favorite.  I know that 12 other participants still have to sing next week, but I don't care, I have a favorite.


I don't like him for the reason that many americans like him, that he is a widower, but I like him because he sounds like Sting!  His raspy voice and style is amazing!  Nate of course only thinks he looks like Robert Downey Jr.!  (doesn't he!) 

So, you can agree with me or not, but he is my favorite, BY FAR!  So, when the time comes to vote for him again, you all know that he has my vote! (and hopefully yours!)

Ah, this is a picture for a mother to cherish, her two boys.  4 years ago I thought that I could never love anything as much as I love my husband, but january 2nd I was proven wrong.  My heart has doubled in size and not only do I LOVE them both completely, but I can't stand to be away from them either!  Being a mother has completely opened my eyes to the wonderful things a child has to offer.  The cute smiles that he directs at me, the way he cries when other people hold him but as soon as I hold him he calms down, the way that he turns his head to listen to me when I call him from across the room, and many more sweet and amazing emotions I have gone through now that I am a mother.  I am so happy to say that I am proud of my boys and I am so blessed to have both of them in my life!


Not only has everyone come up to me telling me that he is "the spit out of his father's mouth" (meaning he looks like Nate) but now he is dressing like him!  Besides the hooligan look that nate has with his backwards hat (that I won't let Gabe mimic until he is at least a teenager!)  He has the same shirt and jeans!  Also, they both have the same look on their face.  The look that says "ok mommy, just get this picture over with because I have better things to do!"

photo shoot


My best friend since I was little is an amazing photographer and so she came over and set up shop in my parents living room to take pictures of Gabe

Here Emily and I are just having fun setting up

Here she is setting up the lighting and nate is getting the "model" ready for pictures

There are so many fun pictures of that night, but I didn't want to bore you (and some of the other ones are coming soon in a baby announcement)  Don't I have a cute baby!
