Kelly Challenge!

If you had to give up one of these things, which would it be
:1. Cell Phone
2. Hair products/curling iron
3. Toothpaste

Well I most definitly could not live without toothpaste!
And there is no way I am giving up my hair straightner!
So there you go...I could live without my cell phone!

Here is Sawyer doing what he does best...PLAYING!

He loves to push things across the room and he does not let anything stop him or get in his way!

A Mess!

Sawyer and I have to share a room...and it sucks for both of us!

All of my scraproom is also his bedroom.

All day long it is a battle. He just wants to play with all the scrapbook stuff! I get so tired of having to tell him no. It is not fair to him that he does not have one place that he can go and play without restrictions!

So last night I saw him grab my scrap box (a box of scrap paper) and I just let him play.

Yes he made a huge mess!

But he had fun!

Laundry Day!

I was doing the laundry today (Sunday is laundry day) and when I got to Sawyer's clothes I pulled the mesh bag out of his laundry basket and put it in the washing machine. I set it down on the couch to fold some clothes....and Sawyer found it!
I have no idea how he got this over his head...but he did. He thought it was very funny too! He walked all around the house and played with his toys like this! Silly boy!

I wanted to wait until all the paper work was complete....
and since the last of it was signed yesterday...

I want to give a HUGE GIGANTIC CONGRATS to my sister, bil and nieces on BUYING THERE FIRST HOME!!!!!!!

We are so excited for you!

Some New Lo!

It feels so good to be scrapping again! For awhile I did not have any inspiration at all! But the last month I have been overflowing with it!

So here are my latest two! I am really happy with the second one! I just love the colors!

It Always Amazes Me!

Everyday Sawyer seems to learn something new! It is sometimes hard for me to grasp that he is turning into a little boy...he is not really my little baby anymore!

Here he is playing with a dinosaur toy that you put balls in different openings and they come out different places! We have had this for a couple weeks now but today he really "got" it!

I just could not help but be amazed watching him figure this out...and the excitement in his face after he did!

A Kelly Challenge...

Remember those "choose your own adventure" books from when we were kids? One decision takes you one direction...another decision and you end up somewhere completely different...That's the basis of this challenge:You didn't meet your husband. You didn't have kids. What would you be doing? What kind of life would you be living? Mention some of the PROS....and the easy to list cons.

I do not like thinking about this question.
Before I met Mark I was on a long path to no where.
I made bad decisions.
I had no stability.
I did not care about consequences..for me or anyone else.
I did what I wanted, when I wanted, how I wanted.
I imagine if I had not met Mark I would probably still be doing exactly what I was 10 years ago...nothing.

Pros would be...no responsibilties

Cons would be...no Mark, no Sawyer, not alot of "true" friends, a bad relationship with my family, and no stability!

My Mark has grounded me. He makes me want to be better. He loves me for me and completly unconditionally!
I am so thankful that I did met him and I did not keep down the path I was on.

Little Wierdo!

My little Soyboy is definitly cute...but he is also wierd sometimes!

Here he is walking around with his lotion in one hand, a lego in the other and a lego in his mouth! This was not a temporary thing

either! He did this for most of the morning!

Eating Ice Cream Layout!

Brand New!

Here is a layout of Sawyer just minutes after he was born!

Daddy's Little Boy!

The other day Mark ordered some parts for his scooter...well they came yesterday.
Sawyer was right there when his Dad was opening the box...he became very attatched to this one white thing. He carried it around the house smiling and laughing!
Than he sat in the middle of all his bright colored fun toys and played witht he white thing!
I hope that Dan is reading this and looking at the photo's b/c Mark thinks he might make him smile in his misery!

Little Climber!

Sawyer just loves to climb up on things! If he pushes his chair over to the couch he can climb up on it! And he leaned that he has to get off it feet first!

Here he was so tired...but he still managed to climb on top of his folded up packnplay but had to lay down when he got there! As you can see he really thought he was cute...and of course so did I!

Hiding Spot

We have been clearing out the house of stuff that we do not need right now (for showings).

Since doing this Sawyer has found a corner behind a speaker where he can hide! He loves getting behind the speaker and giggling! It is really funny to watch!

Another Challenge...

The ol' rodent in Philly says there's more winter ahead. Could you use one more snow storm, or are you done and ready for Spring?

I am so done with winter! If I never had to see snow or ice again in my life...that would be great!
I miss the leaves on the trees, bright pretty flowers, freshly cut lawns, birds chirping, driving with the window down, laying in my hammock, swimming pools, tank tops and flip flops, BBQ's, but what i miss the most is the SUN SHINING!
I can not wait for SPRING!

The Rocking Horse!

Kerry brought Sawyer the girls rocking horse and it is just the right size for him!

After playing on it for awhile he flipped it upside down and found the on button...now it makes noise too!

Daddy Fun!

I never get tired of watching Mark and Sawyer playing together! They always have so much fun...and the giggling and laughing is my favorite sound! This is one of Sawyer's favorite things! He sits on Mark's shoulders and tries to eat his hair...or pretends his head is a drum!


Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Sawyer ran a temperature from 103-106. Nothing else was wrong with him...he had no other symptons...no matter what we did we could not get his temp down! We did tylenol and motrin, cool baths, wash cloths on his neck...it just would not go down!

Friday he woke and he was fine...no temp at all!


So her is Sawyer's fussy face!

Poor little guy!
