Valentine's Day!

Here are a few Pictures from Valentines Day! We don't have any pictures of ourselves. I need to get on that. Just never think about taking pictures of our selves, or don't feel 'Picture worthy!" I will work on that.

Jared made me this giant cookie at work! He tried to decorate it but then asked the cake decorater to do it. It looked Awesome! Very sweet Honey! I Love You so much!

It was nice to finally have a chance to get out our fancy stuff! We used the plates from our wedding china! Jared wanted to use our real crystal goblets and pitcher but I was a bit to nervous about that!


We let Joey eat in style also. He got to drink from a silver plated mini goblet! (I will have to post a picture of the set it belongs to, very fun!

Cute Pics from last few Weeks!

It is amazing how fast Jeanie is growing. She is growing out of her clothes so fast I hardly get a chance to have her wear some of them! Amazing to me... Joey was able to wear his cloths until way past the age marked on the size, but Jeanie is spot on with the sizing usually. She is also starting to do a really good army crawl type scoot. We set her on the floor in one spot and she is clear over on another spot so fast! Not sure how having the two so mobile will be... but I am sure it will be some sort of an adventure!!!!!

Joey is just going crazy with words! Usually when we are away from home he clams up, but at home it is non-stop yaking! Even has a few two-worder sentences. One being, "Come on!" It is so fun to actually hear his little voice saying real words and sentences! Instead of just his Tim Allen style grunts that he used for communication. Joey also is starting to have some odd food choices. He is always picky about what he eats but he has gone crazy with the pickles. Asking for some all the time. Grabs your pinky and drags you to the fridge exclaiming, "Pick! Pick!" Very interesting that the pickle is what he wants all the time. That is all I ever craved when I was pregnant with him. I even went so far that I bought a jar after work... and accidently ate it all before Jared got off work. I hid the jar at the bottom of the garbage and several days later when Jared took out the garbage he wondered what the jar was from and I had to confess!

So, on my last post I never got a comment! That was kinda depressing realizing that I really don't have hardly anyone reading my blog. Even though most of the blogs I read haven't posted for weeks either. Oh well I guess it gets me out of making gifts for people. I still get my gift from my Steph's blog that I got it from. Lol!

Anyway here are a few cute pictures from that last few weeks!



Nothing better then coming home from church and taking a nap in your own Easy Chair!





Joey climbed into one of his toy buckets and then pulled my latest craft on top of him and started to nestle himself down to sleep. I think he might of fell asleep to if we didn't make a fuss about taking a picture!





Jeanie enjoying some goodies out of her little feeder.





Joey giving his little sis' a ride! They had a blast!




Joey was so cute with his Curious George the other day. He just decided that he was his little buddy or something. He put him down for naps. He set him into the tub and then carried him out wrapped in a towel. (which is how we usually do baths) Then later he went and sat him on to the potty! (luckily Jared had fast reflexes to save him from falling in!) He even wanted to have George dressed and then sat him in the Bumbo seat. It was fun to watch him!











Joey was so cute in the bath this morning. Earlier he was playing with cars in the bath with Dad and just wanted to cuddle with him and almost feel asleep. I so wanted to take a picture then but I don't know if Jared would care to have his manly chest exposed put on the blog for all to see, but it really was precious.


Joey also has decided he really LOVES showers. He likes to back up and let the water fall onto his back! At the time I took these pictures he laid down and let Dad take the shower head down and let it just beat onto his back. Oh and don't worry that is not a real razor by him. That is his toy razor from a cute little kid grooming kit that we got at DI for 1.00.

You Can Win!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year. {might be a little while}
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or maybe even some creation I haven't even invented yet (but Heaven knows it will most likely be super shiny or look like it got attacked by a bedazzler). I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!

*Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!*

Joey's Birthday!

Even though it was a week or so ago we still need to share the pictures of Joey turning 2 years old! He had a great day! Here are some pictures and lots of videos of his day. Once you watch the videos it will almost be like you exprienced his day with him! Enjoy!

Joey got to help make his birthday cake. Poured in the eggs and everything he just loved it! You hear Jared comment about the cake being runny, apparently we doubled up on the water. The cake turned out okay to feed us and Joey anyway. Just really dense!

We took Joey to McDonald's for his birthday. We had had all these great plans to go to the Children's Museum or the Aquarium... but ended up settling on McD's. I don't think he could have any more fun then he did here!

Joey taking a rootbeer break!

Most of this video is dark... but you can hear Joey yaking as he walks down the slide.










Jared decorated the cake! I was quite impressed with what he was able to do with a ziplock bag! Good Job Jared!

Please excuse my loud singing right into the microphone here! I am not the best singer at all, but Joey needed someone to sing with daddy



This is Joey's gifts from us. More match box cars and then some motorized cars that drive around on a track.



This is one of Joey's Gifts from Grandma and Grandpa Reece. It is a crazy fun track that he sets his cars into and then pushes the button and then go racing down the track! He LOVES IT! Thanks!
