To much work for this litte elf!

Joey is struggling with his sister enjoying his old toys. He kept ripping off Jeanie's ball and taking off with it. We had an extra from the Reece's set that we must have brought with us in the move. I kind of felt like I had some cats rather then kids!

Joey loves CARS! He loves to play with his cars all over the place! His favorite movie and only movie he will really watch anyway is, CARS! It sometimes tends to be an almost daily viewing. The funniest thing about it is I think he is starting to act out some of the scenes that he sees on the show. The other day Joey was 'helping' me with dishes at the sink and he decided he needed to wash his cars also. He would climb down and grab a car give it a good washing using the sprayer and everything and then set the dripping car down onto the chair he was standing on and go over to his stash and wash another one.. one by one. I then just followed him around with the camera and snapped pictures of him as he played with his cars and trucks.
Joey loves this little nook between the couches. Guess he has decided that it is his little fort! Goof ball. Please excuse the youngsters lack of pants... Most of his pants are to big for him so he ends of losing his britches pretty often!

I have been tagged for this by several friends in the past several months so I decided to finally do it!
How long have you been married?
2 years 10 months!
Before getting engaged we dated for 4 months. We knew each other since High School where we both worked at Macey’s. We didn’t date at the time. Just were flirty work buddies. But when Jared got back from his mission I was still working there. He came through my express checkout lane several times before asking me out on a date.
How old is he?
He is 24, exactly 3 months older then me. (His birthday is April 25th and mine is July 25)
Who eats more?
I am sad to admit. But I believe I am the one that eats more, but in my defense—I have been pregnant for more than half of our marriage
Jared said it first, by almost a month actually. Poor man having to hang on the line for that long.
I barely go to his adam’s apple, and he is on the shorter end of average.
I think that would be a long debate between us. Each claiming the other is. Jared likes to compliment me and tell me I have a great voice- if only I could learn more. I think I sing goofy but have a sweet husband. Jared was in choir in high school and I love hearing his wonderful voice as he sings hymns at church.
Whose temper is worse?
I think we are a pretty darn even on this one. Luckily it works out that we rarely have our moments in sync.
Who does the laundry?
You know I don’t think that I can even recall the last time Jared touched a laundry basket. But that is because he is the one keeping Joey back and busy while I fold, as Joey thinks it is just hilarious to come and knock over my neatly stacked and organized piles of laundry.
Mostly me, but Jared always rinses his plate
I do. It is the side with the cradle and easier access to the bedroom door to perform mommy duties. This arrangement however puts Jared next to the wall with only a foot or so of a walk way for him to get around.
Jared pays the majority of the bills, basically all the ones that can be taken care of online. When it needs a check then it is me.
The contracted worker for the apartments. Joey loves seeing him pass our windows with the fun riding lawn mower.
Who cooks dinner?
I usually cook dinner, but occasionally Jared will think of something creative and make some stinkin’ yummy meals.
Who drives when you are together?
Always Jared. I never have enjoyed driving, and I am so out of practice I think it makes Jared nervous.
Who is more stubborn?
A very enthusiastic vote for me. Think I should be the one with red hair.
That is just about even! They only live about 4 miles apart.
He did, at the park where we had both our first date that summer and also where we went on our date we went on in highschool.
That is a toughy. He had a lot of friends from high school and mission but being the typical man he is he doesn’t keep in touch with them like I did so I think it is me. But according to his facebook account he has 182 and I only have 90.
Me. He has 5 and I have 8.
The 'other roommate' Twanda!
Now this is one of our crazy things we would do almost nightly! We would pour out some powdered coffee creamer above someone holding a match (Brilliant, I know!) and then have a nice long flame!

My Goodness! As many of you know Joey has been putting off talking as long as he could. For just about every other milestone he was way ahead, but for some reason didn't feel a need to talk! Well this week that started to change. For months he would only say 'Mama' and 'Dada' mixed in with a lot of "Tim Allen" style grunts and motions. Several weeks ago mastered the word, "Light" pronounced with an almost German accent. Taught to him by Gma and Gpa Stoker pointing out all the lights in thier yard. This past week and half he started to all of a sudden explode with words. We now have "Bye" "See Ya" "Bird" "Car" "Hot" "Hello" "Love you"
"Poop" "Grampa" "treat" and tonight he gave the big one, "NOOOO!"
Sweet little Jeanie is also starting to make lots of noices and coos and even starting to make little laughs! It is so amazing how fast our little princess is growing!
Jared and Joey!
Joey really enjoyed his costume. Loved pointing at his mustache and Mom's and Dad's mustaches and loved wearing the gloves even though they were to big for his fingers to stay in.
