spam happy




So we visited the SPAM museum about 2 hours south of here. They had some original canned hams from the 20's that were looking mighty tasty. But alas, they weren't for sale. We made our rounds, competed at the "See how fast you can can 6 spam cans" station (say that 6 times fast), and all in all had a grand old time.

Austin, Minnesota smells like SPAM all the time. Does that help or hurt property values?

father and son PJs




Keyton's Grandma Banana made Nick and him matching Jeff Gordan pajamas for Christmas. Here they sport their PJs playing with the hermit crab Hermie and displaying the new skill--clapping.

Outdoor the Keet



Keyton's first real snow. Keyton's first really cold hike along the Wisconsin boarder. Keyton's first snooze by a sort of frozen river.

Beans, Beans, the Musical Fruit



We often catch Keyton staying up late at night tickling the ivory in nothing but his underoos. Lachelle posing with her 4th graders at the holiday concert in December. Keyton striking a dumb, fat, and happy pose. Is it just me, or does he spend a lot of time in that high chair?

Baby's First Christmas Eve



We should have just gotten him empty cardboard boxes and tape since that is all he wanted to play with.

Keyton the Barbarian



Keyton dressed up as a viking (something that came naturally to him since he was born in Minnesota) at the Swedish-American Institute in St. Paul. He got quite a few oohs and ahhs from old women passing by. He has also been practicing his horsemanship on his new rocking horse from Gramma and Grampa Smith. Dad can't wait to teach him to use a sword.

Christmas Hodge-podge



Day one of the blitz of Christmas pictures: Christmas morning in matching PJs from Santa, saying hello to grandma and grandpa great (that's what keyton's 3 year-old cousin Avery has dubed their great grandparents Rasmussen), speaking of Avery she was so excited to meet her baby cousin Keyton!
