Behold, the annual Valentine's Day party that the Johansen aunts throw for their nephews and niece! Notice that this was in February, which gives you an idea of how long I've needed to post pictures.
These were fudge brownie bites filled with raspberry jam. They were yum.
Valentine's Day tea sandwiches with hot chocolate. I think that is Gavin's place mat that he lovingly colored.
Millie's place mat
This is William after "eating" the brownie bite cookie (aka smashing it all over his face)
The kids! Millie, Ashton and Gavin. Cutest sobrinos ever!
Here are a couple of pictures from my birthday (also in February):
I just wanted to show you my delicious birthday cake, raw raspberry (and strawberry) tiramisu (no coffee, only chocolate and love).
I LOVE this picture! Me and the nephews.
I just had to include this picture of Merlin and my feet. I love my Merlin!
He would know! (the little squirt)
I was babysitting Millie and Will, and of course like most other toddlers, William wanted to walk around in his diaper. Who am I to stop him? They always have fun at our house with the complete collection of Chevron cars.
Let's jump to April, when I walked at graduation and commencement even though I graduated in December. I was really glad I did though; I'm really not sure why people don't walk. I like to celebrate with pomp and circumstance! I have quite a few more pictures from graduation I need to steal from my dad's camera, but I wanted to post this one because even though it's kind of blurry, it's cool to see all the caps and gowns.
After graduation we went to the BOMBAY HOUSE, my favorite restaurant of all time. Ever.
