Outside Play

"Boys are meant for kisses and hugs, For watching rainbows and catching bugs, For sharing all of your favorite things, For books to read and songs to sing."

Every year I have wanted to buy snapdragons... but we can never find them and end up with Pansy's.

This year... I was able to snatched up a few and they are blooming so pretty.

Joshua is so proud of our green thumbs. We have been watering almost every day.

I don't know why I love snapdragons so much.. I just think they are beautiful!!

iPhone Is For Everyone

Someone is addicted to puzzles on Mama's Iphone.....

I was cleaning out the laundry room and found him like this putting together a elephant puzzle.

I guess at least it's something educational and not just angry birds.

Daddy's Pants

"In raising a child.. I have lost my mind, but found my soul!" - Lisa T. Shepard

I asked him to help me fold clothes.. instead he tries on his daddy's jeans and claims he "still has a lot of growing to do!"

Valentine's Party

Joshua was so excited, he hardly slept the night before. He was excited about his Valentine's party and dance that his friend and him were going to do for the parents.

They did a dance from the Wiggles....

"Do the elephant... Eeeeee"
"Do the monkey.. Oh Uh Eh Oh"
"Do the Tiger.... Roar"

"Now jump to the front and back!"

"Jump to the front and back!!"

He had fun and got lots of Valentine's from his friends.

Happy Cupid Day!!

Valentine Present

John is out to sea for Valentine's day, but we still wanted to surprise little man with something special.

No candy.. because.. well.. he doesn't need any. He is still on steroid's for his ears and that hypes him up enough for this mama.

We did get him a few small things.. a bubble blower (because those things seems to break after the 5th use).... a frying pan full of food that he can use on his outside BBQ pit.... and a Pony... yes I know its girly, but he has been begging us for one. I tried to find a blue one, but had to settle for the orange'ish yellow one instead. When he saw the pony.. he even told me..."Mom! I wanted the boy pony's!!"

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!

PS. I did get a great Valentine's gift.. flowers and a trip to the Coach store which yielded me 3 coach purses, a clutch and some bag scarfs. I also got a pair of Oakley sunglasses. John got a new hard drive that he has been wanting.

Gift From Friends

Valentine's Day is truly here.. with full force and lots of presents...

We are truly blessed and truly loved with lots of friends.

Today, my mom brought over a present from some of our good friends, Lilly and Olivia.

He was excited to get candy and some new trashies!
So thank you Lilly and Olivia.. you made his day extra special.

Valentine Card

It was a Card from Granna and Papa!

Thank you Granna and Papa.. he loves you too!!

Valentine's For School

Getting ready for Joshua's Valentine party at school, we put a bunch of goodies together for his class today. Granna had already put together the goody bags, but we added the tags. Joshua picked out which Spiderman Valentines he wanted to give his friends and he picked out what animal sucker he wanted to give each one of his friends.

Then, this year the theme of their party was healthy snacks... so Joshua was signed up to bring pretzels.

He is so excited for his friends to see all the goodies he got for them.
