More catch up!

This is our newest thing. We put him down at night in his bed and he falls asleep in front of the door. Its a good thing we have 2 doors to his room, or else that's where he would sleep all night! James has been starting to have opinions as to what he wears the last few months and this day he wanted to wear a tie and since those have to be dry cleaned we compromised and went with suspenders. Its a good look on him and look how proud he looks. He wore those suspenders all day long and hasn't wanted to wear them since!

This last weekend we went to my cousins Graduation party and his daughter's 2nd Birthday party and all my Aunts and Uncles were there! It has been a long time since they have been together and it was good to see them all well and in good health.
Linda, Al, Kimber and my dad, Larry
And their spouses! What a good looking bunch of people! Doesn't my mom look great?

Catch up!

Here is kind of what A & D looks like in hair. Modeling for us today is Ben and James...

I guess to be fair you should know that not all of this is A & D, my son is constantly leaking from his orfacies! Its a good mixture of snot, drool and A & D!

James playing at the Edmond's Beach. It was a cloudy day so the picture is really dark but you can still see the ferry and the mountains in the background! Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to live in this area!


This morning was like every other morning, we ate, did baths and then I started cleaning up. Usually I take James down with me and close the child safety locked door behind us, but this morning was a little different. I was in charge of food last night for 80 sisters for our Enrichment activity and I had a lot of cleaning up to do, so I took care of all the pens and went down stairs leaving James up stairs to play. That was my first mistake...I love the peace and quite, but sometimes that can be a warning sign. I came up stair after starting my first load of dishes to find James coloring on post it notes with a pen, but no other pen markings any where to be found, so proud moment right, almost. I complemented him on his drawings and as I do that he turns around to expose the precious pink shade of lipstick. Oops! It was all over the desk, his arms and clothes and of course his face. It was a cute shade, but now it resides in the trash can. Oh well! The joys. It was the first time I have ever left him unattended in our bedroom and it will be a while before it happens again!

To answer all those that were wondering, A & D just comes out after 2 days...we were a little greasy until then, but now he looks just like normal...well we haven't had a bath since yesterday morning which means he has lotion, pizza sauce, salt, vegetable oil and stroganoff in his hair currently. I guess there are worse things in life to come! Thanks to all those that helped!
