Guess Who's Back???

Yes, I know I took a loooooooooooong hiatus, but, I'm back...and I mean business.  A lot has changed in the almost 3 years I have been MIA.  So, just going to start with the most important:  I now have TWO adorable boys taking up all my "free" time, instead of just one.  Makes me happier then you could ever know!


So...these guys are basically my wold.  Although, this is an older picture...and little man there, now looks my like this...




So hopefully, I will blog semi regularly again.  I would like to.  So, going to try & make it a point to do so!
Until next time...peace.

All Dressed Up...


A few weeks ago we had a wedding to attend. Chris got dressed in his best attire and danced his heart out all night. When I told him it was time to get dressed in his dress clothes, he told me "I wearing my handsome clothes?" Ha!

New Room...



So, now that Chris is two, we decided it was about time to give him a room that he can call his. Something that is his personality, along with nice furniture to last him. A few weeks ago we bought the furniture and the room renovation began.

The room got fresh new blue paint. Some robot decals on the wall. A new bed, chest of drawers and nightstand. A really cool robot comforter set. A little blue paint on the carpet (opps! we weren't suppose to talk about that one).

I wasn't sure what Chris would think about this. He loved his crib and struggled for a few days with switching over to the toddler bed. I assumed this would happen again...as he was going from a tiny bed...to a HUGE bed.
Boy was I wrong! Chris loved it from day one! He laid right down at bedtime, kissed us goodnight...told us his bedtime "goodnight, sleep tight, I'll see you in the morning", then told us to leave, as this was his NEW room. LOL!

Guess Who's Back....

Wow, so, a friend brought it to my attention that this has not been updated in quite a while. Opps! Turns out, I am quite the slacker. However, I am back in buisness! Starting today, I am going to attempt to get on here again and write. So much happens in our everyday lives that is fun to share :)

For example, for Christmas, Santa brought Chris a fun tool set. It came with a hard hat and protective glasses. My friend's daughter, wore the hat and marched around singing "Yes we can" from Bob the Builder. Priceless. Chris on the other hand, seems to like to put them on together and beg to have his picture taken. After taking this picture:


I realized he reminded me of someone, but could not put a finger on it. Until Becky brought it to my attention, how much he looks like Scuba Steve (from Big Daddy...see below). Priceless! LOL!


So, he was going for constuction guy...and ended up getting scuba doll :)

A Day at the Zoo...

Saturday we spent a very lovely morning at the zoo. The temperature outside was pleasant, the kids were in good spirits...and the animals were enjoyable! Christopher seemed to enjoy the elephants the most (surprise, surprise), while Ella was more into the monkeys and making monkey sounds. After a few hours, lots of site seeing and some lunch, everyone was exhausted! I wish every weekend was this nice!

What a Beutiful Mess...


Who could resist a face like this??? Really...

Dancing Fools...

video

"You got to sing like you don't need the money...Love like you'll never get hurt...You got to dance like nobody's watchin'...It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work"

"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,May you never take one single breath for granted,GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.I hope you dance....I hope you dance.I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,Never settle for the path of least resistance,Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.I hope you dance....I hope you dance.I hope you dance....I hope you dance.(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.Dance....I hope you dance.I hope you dance....I hope you dance.I hope you dance....I hope you dance..(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)" ~ Lee Ann Womack, I Hope You Dance
