Holly Nearly Suffocates and Passes Out as she Pushes the Button to Enter the American Idol Songwriting Competition

Yes Everyone, I entered American Idol, but not as a singer because I would definately lose, but I might have one one millionth of a shot at getting a song to the top twenty. So everyone go to and register to vote in the songwriting contest. They will send you an email after they have selected the top twenty songs, and if I make it, you can vote for me! Wish me luck!

Happy Easter This Last Sunday!

Here are some photos of the boys this Easter. We do all of the Easter Bunny stuff on Saturday, and since we aren't going to church with a new baby until May, we don't have any cute new Sunday clothes pictures of the boys, but here are photos of the eggs they colored and also the neighborhood egg hunt. Isaac found the most of anyone, I think, totalling something like 20 eggs. Jacob found about five, but he still had fun. When I heard him later at home saying "Isaac is sharing his eggs with me" I was so proud, then came to find out that Isaac was giving Jacob his empty eggs after he ate the candy out of them. Oh well! They were at least getting along, right?

In My Other Life I was a Black and White Photographer

First of all, let me say that I absolutely love our new camera and the quality of pictures we get from it, especially it having been totally affordable as well. If anyone needs a new digital camera, I would highly recommend the Canon Power Shot Series, we got the A560 and it only cost us $138 on It has so many awesome features, incuding automatic face recognition, where it somehow recognizes faces (you actually see four squared corners appear around every face in the screen as you are taking the photo) and it focuses the faces no matter what. No blurries! Secondly, I guess I should say that this is Holly talking. And the feature I love the most on our camera is the ability to manipulate the color right on your camera before you even take the photo, so I have fallen in love with the Black and White Feature. (You can also choose Sepia, Natural, Vivid, etc). The display shows the world as black and white, etc, as you point and shoot so you know if the picture will look good b & w before you even take it. Here are some candid shots of our beautiful children! I love black and white photography!

Ava Marie is Born!

Our little sweetheart, Ava Marie Harmon, was born on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 8:26 a.m. She weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz., and is only 17 1/2 inches long! She has been the most content, sweet little munchkin ever. Isaac is in love with his little sister, and Jacob is warming up to the idea that he is no longer the baby in the family (you'll note him hiding his face in one of the pictures - he wouldn't let anyone take his picture at the hopsital). We are so proud of our little family and are so excited to welcome our little Ava to earth!
