Just a quick share...

Took Bekah's 6 year old pictures (six? puke!).
This is her invite to her party, details have been swirled out, I didn't want a lot of unexpected guests showing up for pizza! :)
I have a few more of her pictures up here...

one-eight

18 months of...
making messes, cleaning messes, getting hugged, giving hugs, getting kissed, giving kisses, snuggling while sleeping, not wanting to be snuggled while awake, making dirty diapers, getting dirty diapers cleaned, smiling, making us all smile, taking naps, not wanting to take naps, laughing, making everyone else laugh, having fun, not having fun, sucking on binkies, having missing binky emergencies, being a mommy's boy, being a daddy's boy, being a grandma's boy, being a naughty boy...

It's been a fun year and a half...we love this kid!

Mama got a brand new coat...

My mom sent me this coat for my birthday, and I love it!
Whenever my mom buys us clothes she makes us do a "fashion show" always has always will I guess.
The first thing she says after I tell her thank you for the wonderful happiness wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper, she tells me to send a picture of me in the coat...
It just so happened that I had a professional (5 year old) photographer on hand, so I had to strike a pose!
So I decided to take the magazine shot...giving her the full effect of the "fashion show."
Thanks mom, it really is a fun coat! :)

School is in session....

We started another school year on Monday...and the best part is...we turned our back bedroom into a school room!
We have bookshelves, and filing cabinets, and room for the keyboard, and a place to sit and do art projects and school assignments.
Today the kids were playing with the present that Porter gave them for Christmas...play-dough.
...and the very best part, when it was time for lunch...I didn't have to clean play-dough off the table first, and when they were done eating they went back to playing.
Christopher was concentrating very hard on making a play-dough ball, and Bekah was working on her school work for the day.
Both of the kids are always excited in the morning to get to school work, my kids love a routine, especially if mom is giving them undivided attention during said routine.
Mom is very happy to give them attention, and very excited to have all of the school stuff in one room instead of in her living room! :)

Snow-Me No Likey...

...and apparently neither does my youngest.He got a tiny bit on his hand here.
When we have to go outside and there is even a little bit of snow on the ground, he freaks out and won't walk in it, he wants me to hold him.
I try to show him when it is snowing outside, and he totally gives the softly falling snowflakes a dirty look.
That's my boy!

Mirror Mirror On My Wall

I Love it!
My mom's friend Brandon made it especially for me for Christmas with the colors and design I wanted.
You must see it in real life.
