Gotta love a $2 bouquet of a dozen roses! I got these from Albertson's, leftover from Valentine's day! I always tell my husband that I don't really care for roses, especially red ones. But I just couldn't pass these up!
Today I took Colby to a local park to sign him up for a Dinosaur class. Now that the kids are in school, and since it's been winter, we hardly ever get to go to the parks these days. So Colby was extra excited to have a few minutes to play! Seeing him on these toys that he used to play on when he was 2 years old just showed me how much he has grown! :( sniff!
There was no school today in honor of Abraham Lincoln so we had my sister Isabelle for a visit. The girls and I busted out Lacies alphabet bead set to make some necklaces and keychains! It was to boring for Colby LOL
Another old daycare babe of mine came over today. Baby H brought her mommy and daddy over for dinner and to show me her 2 year old pictures. I started watching Baby H when she was just 3 months old! Her mommy asked her to please make her valentine's and bday cards with her new pictures. I'm so glad that I can still be a part of this baby's life!
Happy 26th Birthday to my "baby" brother! I don't remember him being born. I remember him always being there. I have so many great (and a few not so great) memories of he and I growing up together. We are only 2 years apart and our birthdays are exactly a week apart. I am so excited to see what this year brings for him!
My brother and I plus our kids stood in line for 40 minutes with a TON of other people to get our free breakfast on at Denny's! It was so much fun spending time together and the food was yummy! I just wish I had a picture of all 5 of us. Unfortunately my nephew is that fun age (2) and was not into having his picture taken.
In a 3 week span we have 4 birthdays to celebrate in my family. David on January 20th, my brother Greg on February 6th, me on February 13th, and my stepdad on February 14th. This year we agreed to celebrate all 4 at once at a new restaurant in town called Famous Dave's BBQ. There were other family members there, we exchanged gifts, had yummy bbq, cake and ice cream. It was a nice night spent with people we love!
This picture will have to do for now, or forever. My mom has one of us 4 birthday peeps in front of the Famous Dave's catering truck that I'd rather use. In this picture, my stepdad, mom, sister, and my kids are looking at the album that we as a birthday gift for him.
Tonight we had the pleasure of babysitting a lil 2 and a half year old boy. This lil boy, Lil P, was a regular around here until last May. He was my lil daycare babe (one of em) for 2 years! I was amazed at how well he and the kids got along together and just had a blast snuggling and tickling him again! Can't wait till his mom and dad need a babysitter again!
Another Colby creation. I always hate asking him to clean this up knowing how hard and diligent he was in getting it set up. But when THIS is right smack dab in the middle of my livingroom, well let's just say it's a good thing he loves doing this over and over LOL
We didn't plan it this way, it just happened. Our kids are named after two different types of cheese. I don't even like cheese that much. But they sure do. Think their names have anything to do with it? Who knows. Either way, I am, and probably always will be, Cheeziemommie.
