Sunday 2/13/11

The kids on Sunday.
During the shooting of that picture,
Jeremy sustained this injury....
I was sitting Ryan up and didn't realize he had come
up behind me with the camera at his eye...
I stood up and


Sunday morning....
Ryan got his 1st BUZZ CUT
He did great.
He hated having to sit still,
but other than that he chewed on my watch and didn't care.

Sorry. I feel like this picture looks that much
grosser (is that a word?) because we have a pink tub.

All done....





I think it makes him look so much older!
Sad to loose the curl, not so sad to loose the knots.

An afternoon at home

I took these pictures knowing that
would be happening soon after.

OK, this picture just makes me laugh....
doesn't it look like all his proportions are off?
Tiny legs, HUGE head!
E wanted to pose for one.

The reason for a hair cut...
all these cute curls in back would end up
matted in a mess of knots by the end of the day.

Bug Family


Lately I've been craving Rock a little more....
I'll be driving along wishing that I had my old Sublime, 311, or rock mix cd's with me,
only I think it's a good thing that I don't because

they probably aren't appropriate for my 3 year old to be listening too.

Anyway - I am currently LOVING
Linkin Park - Waiting for the end
it's been all over the radio lately...

If you know me at all you know I love lyrics, here are a few lines....

With fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something
That's invisible there,
'Cause we're living at the mercy of
The pain and the fear

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It's out of my control....

Clever, clever....

Wouldn't it be fun to hit up a mosh pit at the Huntridge like the good old Vegas kids?

Lime Tree

We finally (almost 2 years later)
looked up how to trim our Lime Tree.
Now it is blooming like CRAZY!
It smells DIVINE!

You are lighting up my life during the drab winter days!
Thanks Lime Tree!

V-day & Crayon Melts

About a year ago I saw this idea for melting crayons on a blog. I would tell you where, but I honestly don't remember. So, a year ago I headed to the dollar store to get 2 hand towels and a cheese grater. I already had a large box of well used broken crayons from my childhood to use.
I finally did the project.
Elizabeth helped me sort the colors ....
And peel all the wrapping off.
(fyi: I didn't even come close to using all of these.)

Then once the kids were in bed (E is too little to handle a grater and an iron)
I set up shop.

If you don't know the next steps... well, just ask I guess. I think most people have done this before.
Then I cut out the shapes I wanted.....
This one shows off the pretty flowers Jer gave me. :)

We had a ROCKIN' VALENTINES' DAY PARTY the on Sat. the 12th. I sadly didn't get any pictures. HOWEVER, rest assured that we had a great time, with TONS of AMAZING food, (my friends are the best cooks!) and GREAT company! It was a BLAST!

Here are some of the decorations that I did with the crayon melts
(that's what I'm naming this project)

And with the rest of the hearts we made E's Valentines for her class.
