Valentines Day

We had a fun little breakfast for V-day this year. Beau and I have never been into Valentines Day since we've been together, but this year I decided to do a little something. I think it was just because it gave me a project, something different to do. I was excited that that morning could be a little bit different than every other one. We are pretty boring/routine around here.
I made pink heart shaped pancakes and decorated the table. Noth'n fabulous, but kinda fun. I think having a kid actually makes Valentines a little more fun. I did this as much for Josh as I did it for Beau. I love them both SO SO much!

I wont get all mushy, but I do want to say how much I appreciate my hubby for all the sacrifices he is making, and hard work he is putting in to make a better life for our family. I have a hard time with it some days, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Although I can't see it right now, I know there is a light at the end of this tunnel and it is going to be so worth it when we get there. He's one amazing guy! Nothing has been handed to him, he's worked so hard from the day I met him to do what was right and provide the best he can for us (and he does a good job at that). Even when it involves moving 8 hrs away from home. He doesn't think twice when it's the right thing to do. That's what I love most about him. Well, that and the fact that he can fix or make ANYTHING! Seriously though, he's so handy! I love you Beau.

He's so cute

I haven't posted a picture of my little guy in a while so I thought I would really quick before I hit the sack. I made chili and mini cornbread muffins for dinner the other night and Josh loved his very own muffin so much. After he licked if for a little while he devoured it.
He's so cute and so much fun!

Hopefully I will be able to post again soon. It's been a REALLY rough couple days around here, but I'm beginning to feel human again so it might happen in the next couple days. I hope.

Sad Story...

So, sad story. My camera is slowly but surely dieing! It's 4 years old, which is like a hundred in technology years, and it has been drug around the world so I don't know why I'm so surprised. But I am. I guess I just thought it'd live forever.

I've literally been saving my pennies

to purchase my current obsession. This bad boy!

But I doubt there's $730 in that little mason jar right now :(

I'm torn. Do I pay $200 for the newer version of the camera I have now? Or do I save that and put it toward the camera I really want? Seems like an easy answer, but the problem lies in the fact that say there is $100 in my mason jar right now, combine that with the $200, and I still have $430 to come up with. Which is a HUGE chunk of money!
I don't know...I guess we'll just have to see how long I can keep my camera going. Maybe by the time is actually dies, something will come up (like Christmas or something;).

Although I am SO over winter at this point (February is always the hardest month), I still look out my windows every day and admire how beautiful it is. Snow really is so pretty. We've had such bright sunny days lately. I love it! I took these pictures on my way to take Josh to play at the gym the other morning. They aren't great because I took them while I was driving, but hopefully you can get the point. This is what happens when we have freezing fog. It sticks to everything and makes it super pretty, but it only lasts for a couple hrs after the sun comes up before it melts off. I don't usually see it because, lets be honest, I don't get out of the house before 9 a.m. like Ever, so I still get really excited to see it and have to take pictures.

Poor Joshy

Poor Josh is cutting his 4 top teeth right now! All at the same time. I'm really excited for him to finally have teeth (this will make 7), but the poor little guy has got to be in so much pain. He's been really good for the most part. The only way I figured it out is that over the last 3 or 4 days little things have been setting him off that normally wouldn't. He'll be happy all day, but all he has to do it trip on something, get a little hungry, or not get his way and he has a huge come-a-part. He's also been waking up once in the middle of the night the past few nights for his binki. That's all for now. I hope it doesn't get worse though, because I can handle's the 3 times a night and fussy all day thing that's SO hard on all of us! I think he'll do fine. They're cutting threw right now, and as I write this he is running around on top of the desk fake sneezing and laughing at himself. Apparently it's not too bad.

Yesterday was such a good day. I love Sundays! It was so nice to relax all day, the 3 of us together. We came home from church and made way yummy food, watched the super bowl, played together, painted my toe nails, put Josh to bed and then cuddled and watched a movie. It was just what we all needed, and now I feel like I can handle another crazy week :)

My Friday Night aka: Pitty Party

It's late on a Friday night and I'm still alone. Well Joshua is here of course, but my husband isn't. I made dinner and everything thinking, oh it's a Friday night, he'll be home. And he did come home, long enough to change his clothes and go out with the missionaries until 10 o'clock. So I ate dinner alone. Now I'm going to go rent a movie....and watch it alone. Then I'll probably eat ice cream.
I want to move. I want to go home so I can hang out with my mom.

Last Week with Joshua

Watching the snowmobiles out his bedroom window-his favorite thing EVER!

Playing at Grandma and Grandpa's

Helping me pack

So happy to be playing with Dad

I took Josh to the rec center last Friday for Pre-school Gym. He had so much fun and I loved getting him and I out of the house. He was funny, for the first hour he just wondered around the gym looking at everything, but didn't play with anything. He's such an observer. He has to check everything out before he can get down to business.


Recently Joshua has decided he loves to color...and he's got skills!
