2011 Project 365: Week 7

Week 7!

February 12, 2011: We took the boys to Chik fil A for breakfast before hitting the Lowes Build and Grow Clinic. Looks like this is becoming a routine and I like it!

February 13, 2011: We had a few friends over for some good food and games. Our friend Nina brought her niece Anya so the boys had a friend too. BTW...This was taken with Weston's camera. Not sure if he actually took the picture but if so he did a pretty decent job.

February 14, 2011: Happy Valentine's Day! Mike and I decided when we started dating that we wouldn't celebrate V-Day due to our birthdays being surrounded by the date; however, now that the boys are a little older, I do enjoy giving them Valentine's gifts and making cookies (with a Kiss)! These are Peanut Butter Blossoms in the making. Weston helped roll the dough in sugar.

February 15, 2011: This day was the first day of my woman's bible study at church. We are doing Beth Moore's Breaking Free this time around and I am pumped! Hope is a great friend who agreed to watch the boys in the nursery while I'm in class. The boys adore Hope and always have so much fun with her, whether they are taking goofy pics in the mirror or playing TomCat on her phone. :)

February 16, 2011: This is Grayson. He's throwing a fit. I think it's hilarious to watch. (He doesn't agree).

February 17, 2011: The weather is beginning to warm up and I couldn't be happier! I'd forgotten how much I enjoy taking the boys out on the deck and soaking up the sun. We cleaned up all the toys outside and I was sure the sand would be yucky and breeding some kind of fungus but lo and behold it was clean and ready to be played with, which was lucky because I may have had an uprising on my hands had I told the boys they had to wait.

February 18, 2011: Have I mentioned how much I love my sister-in-law Meredith? Not only does she make my brother a very happy man, but she really made me a very happy woman on this day by giving my darling husband this handsome hair cut. Mike's hair was getting long and stringy (and a little homely looking), but she fixed that and I love his new look! So sexy!

2011 Project 365: Week 6

Week 6!!!

February 5, 2011: My sweet cat sleeping in one of her many awkward positions.

February 6, 2011: I won first place in Fantasy Football!! The small trophy was for coming in first in my league and the big trophy is for coming in first place over all among the three leagues our church had going!!

February 7, 2011: While playing upstairs on this day, the boys decided to get into the powder, and their bath paints. They made a complete mess (you can see the powder floating in the air) and were very pleased with themselves.

February 8, 2011: Every Tuesday morning we go to the Judy Center for a structured play group. Here is Weston holding up the "I" they painted with ice paint.

February 9, 2011: A normal Wednesday night, hanging out at church. This is Weston's blowing bubble stance. :D

February 10, 2011: Because Weston kept climbing in Grayson's crib, and Gray kept trying to climb in it, the screws were coming loose. I figured it was time to go ahead and convert the crib into a toddler bed. He hasn't fallen out yet and loves being able to climb in and out of his bed by himself.

February 11, 2011: We went to a surprise 18th birthday party for one of the boys at our church on this day. The kids were so cute dancing around and having a blast together. (Mike and Becky too apparently!)

Before You Call 911...

and have 2 fire trucks come and approximately 7 firemen/woman enter your home.... should check your dish-washing machine to make sure it's not just burning plastic you're smelling instead of gas that you believe will incinerate your entire home.....

But hey...better safe than sorry, right? Wouldn't want anything to happen to these little darlings...

2011 Project 365: Week 5

Week 5!!!

January 29, 2011: Mike let me sleep in a little and when I came downstairs, this is what the boys were getting ready to play with! I think Mike has more fun creating and playing with the train tracks than the boys do.

January 30, 2011: Grayson peed in the potty this morning!!! He kept saying "potty" so I put him on it, went to wake Weston up, and came back and found pee in the potty!!! Go Gray!

January 31, 2011: Weston's decided to go the next step in potty training and is finally making an effort to poo on the potty. We are making progress but I can't wait to be done with diapers!

February 1, 2011: The boys helped me make pudding, which we ended up dying blue since it was Blue Day!

February 2, 2011: We all got haircuts from my sister in law Meredith on this day. We didn't get done until around 3 and then Weston did something he hardly ever does anymore....he fell asleep in the car. I love how big he looks with his new haircut but how also how little he looks sleeping in the car. :)

February 3, 2011: Grayson had his 18 month check up on this day. Both of the boys weigh the same amount (again!). They each weigh exactly 27.6 pounds. Crazy! All the girls (especially Nurse Pat) love when the boys come in the office. Here they are spoiling them with lollipops! Grayson was such a trooper and only winced when he got his shot. I can't believe we'll be down to yearly appointments soon. :(

February 4, 2011: One of Weston's new favorite things, tracing his hand. He even finishes it up by rounding out the bottom of his palm when he's done tracing.
