Chicken Pox

Guy got his Chicken Pox vaccine yesterday. It's so weird to me to know he will not be getting the Chicken Pox!! What kind of childhood is that? No Chicken Pox. He doesn't know how good he has it...

Scrapbook Pages : March Guy

I'm scrapbooking pics from March... ugh! Well, I'm going to work on Guy's scrapbook lots more until I'm caught up then I'll slack off again! I will probably do less his second year so I don't get so behind. Plus there is a huge change he isn't going to care later and he lets me keep these. Boys can be like that!

A Very Special Birthday!

Guy's birthday was Sunday! He woke up early to open presents!

After Church and a Burger King breakfast for a little Prince we came home for a nap!
Then once we got up we brushed our teeth while watching Elmo's World on Birthdays.

Time to open more presents! "What is this? I don't care - it's my favorite!"

"A harmonica? I knew that. Give it back, dad!!"

At noon it was time for Guy's party! We went to Magic Carpet Mini Golf for pizza... and more presents! Guy had lots of mommy and daddy's friends show up. He felt very loved!

Time for cake! We had Hostess Cupcakes since they are Guy's favorites! He had one last week for the first time and went bonkers!Time to play some mini-golf!

"This is my ball now! Here, use this rock - it's kind of round..."

After his party...Guy was so tired! Too tired to sleep! And since it was his birthday mommy put him in the car and took for a very long drive. He didn't sleep at all, he just stared out the window. We picked up dinner on the way home so we wouldn't waste 3 gallons of gas for nothing. After dinner the little birthday boy was ready to conk out. Momma read him a Little Critter story and gave him some warm milk.
Guy's best birthday yet!

Apple Pie!

It's autumn so it seemed right for an apple pie! This is the first time I've made my own pie crust. It turned out yummy but rolling it out was hard because it wouldn't stay together. I think next time I'll add more water! My King Arthur Flour baking cookbook provided me with this recipe and some tips that I ignored but will use next time!

New Family Member

I'm 2 tiny weeks pregnant. To celebrate Guy likes to crawl on my belly and jump up and down. I don't like it one bit and I doubt his little sibling does either. He has been banned from belly jumping and other only child privileges will soon disappear for the little man. He's tough - he can take it.

The little person is due to escape sometime around May 30th.

Lunch Picnic

Is your food better than mine?

Pizza Pie

I'm getting pretty decent at making homemade pizza! This was dinner on Monday and was delicious.

Summer is Ending!

In the summer I haven't really been as passionate about food. But, I'm getting into the baking mood again. I tried baking a 7-Up Bundt Cake yesterday. I thought it sounded delicious but I did not like it and I threw the recipe away! My new favorite thing to do with 7-Up is mix it with Kool-Aid. My husband taught me it because it doesn't seem obvious to me like I'm sure it does lots of other people.

Baby Stole the Tape!

Guy is pretty much running now. He has 4 teeth with 2 more coming in. He's ready for his first birthday! He got his first 1st birthday card yesterday from his best friend Geoffry the Giraffe. He has never been so excited over a card!

This is what Guy's been up to lately and I've been up to rescuing him.
