Our Monday....

Meet my nephew Thomas.

He's very shy

and doesn't like looking at the camera

but he likes cookies

and he loves his mama

and enjoys watching over her while she updates her facebOok page

Thomas and Lexi came over to visit yesterday because...

Uncle Dustin had a GEG layover and came to visit us!!

He too needed to update his FaceboOk page

but he also really wanted to take the pink princess scooter for a spin

before we had dinner, Miya and her aunt had a little chat

and then I was hell bent on getting some cute pics of my kid and nephew

except these two tots were in no mood to cooperate.

say cheese, wait, stay there Miya...wait, hold on...

hold on, stay there Thomas!

Miya, sit on the chair with Thomas, SMILE!

Oh nevermind, go play on the pink princess scooter with your uncle.

What a week.

My girl is sick. again. She's been sick all week. I'm taking her to the Dr. this afternoon to rule out an ear infection or something worse. She's had (and still has) fevers, a nasty sounding cough, boogers galore, she barfed once, and hasn't been sleeping well.

I feel and look like this:


In other news...

  • My taxes have been filed! I'm getting a FATTY refund. Thank you adoption tax credit.

  • My fancy dancy camera has been purchased, it has arrived, and I'm slowly figuring it out. As soon as I figure out how to download the pics, I'll post some. You will laugh when you see my pictures so far, CLEARLY I have a lot to learn. I will say this tho...3 weeks ago I had no idea what aperture, shutter-speed, white balance, F-Stops, or exposure were and I am excited to report that I do now, but I still have a LONG way to go.

  • It's March, it's still snowing here and it's colder than you know what. Yesterday's high was 11 degrees. I'm sick of it. I'm cold.

  • I whacked all my hair off. It's in a short bob type cut now. I needed a change. I got one, a couple actually.

  • Next weekend Miya and I are having photos taken, professionally.

  • I need to cut my cable. Money is tight. I'm having a hard time doing it. I don't want to do it. I need to do it. Maybe I'll do it at the end of April. Maybe not.

  • Miya's new words are more (moh), ball, cheese, and milk (mil). You go girl.

  • Grandpa is teaching Miya how to bake:

TGIF - gotta run!
