...things i didn't blog about in 2011...
part 3
see part 1 and part 2 here

chad and i went on our first husker road trip (together)to laramie, wyoming.
tickets were pretty hard to come by.
like, nebraska is allotted 3,000 tickets per road game and
20,000 nebraska fans requested tickets for this match up
in a stadium that holds 30,000.
i knew going into the weekend that we didn't have tickets.
we were just going to soak in the atmosphere and maybe try to snag some right before game time.
september 2011

instead, these two shady folks decided to surprise me.
i didn't know until about 30 minutes prior to kick off that we had game tickets.
it was a very sweet surprise.
i was almost in tears.
that pretty lady right there, is chad's aunt, and also my biggest blog fan!!

daily battles getting this kid to eat.
unless he's at daycare, he'll eat whatever she puts on the plate.
so annoying.

...things i didn't blog about in 2011...

this is really quite frustrating to me.

why do i have all of these pictures
and no posts to go with them?

i'm going to be better.
i'm going to be better.
i'm going to be better.

here we go again...
speed blogging round 2.

i am the 4th generation of insurance agents in our agency.
my great grandfather opened the business close to 100 years ago.
my dad refinished grandpa willie's desk.
leaving in the cigarette burns
and hand carving of his name "bill" on the top.
my mom is now the proud owner in her new sewing shop.

cashman turned 2 in june.
he's driving a big green tractor these days (from my parents).
he hasn't mastered the idea of having to steer the wheel.
he'd rather dance to the music on it's radio.
yes, it has a radio.

more of sisters sorensen.
i have these little treasures on my macbook that their parents don't even know about...
until now.

fourth of july at the lake.
that kid loves the sand.
the water? not so much...

long day in the sun on the fourth of july.
crashed on daddy.
until the fireworks started.
then he was ready to party.

mira wild woman
love those missing teeth.

miss jade
fresh out of the swimming pool.

feeding the animals with chad and grampy at
our first trip to the nebraska state fair.
now that is is within 30 minutes drive, it's a very attractive getaway.
anyone else think those petting zoos are gross?

a little baby pig born only 2 days old.
i'll leave it at that.
my caption ideas were just plain mean. :-)

maybe cash's favorite part of the day
the BID tractors! (he says bid instead of big)
grumpy would not buy this for him.

enough for now...
yes there is more to come.

...things i didn't blog about in 2011...

this is a long list, folks.
it's taken me days to edit all these photos.

my new year's resolution...
blog more often.
blog when my photos are uninspiring.
for they are still a part of our life.

put them on here even if they are not perfect.
for our life is not perfect.

hold me to it.

deep breath...
here we go.

cash is obsessed with binoculars.
he's always looking for deer and turkeys.
thank goodness he finally learned to open his eyes.
april 2011

a little incident with a marshmallow.
i did not have to use scissors, but it wasn't easy.
seriously, kid???
april 2011

this picture makes me sad now.
what a blessing it was to have chad's sister and family just down the street.
now they are so, so far away.
