Sweet Home Alabama

Today Jonathan and I took a little trip down to SB to visit Grandma W, Grandpa O and Thomas. While we were down there for lunch Jonathan experienced another "first". His first time in a bar! I couldn't help but think of the line from Sweet Home Alabama.... "you have a baby!.... in a bar!" yup that was me today. When she took our order (of iced tea and cheap steak... it's steak Tuesday afterall) she said and nothing for the baby... a cocktail maybe? laughing. Funny stuff. I don't have a picture to post.....hmmmm

Havasu Weekend

Last week I finished up parent teacher conferences (yahoo!!!). Friday night Thomas, Jonathan and I headed out to the house in Havasu.

On Saturday we went out on the boat... it was so sunny and nice but the air blowing on us from the lake was pretty cold, it seemed strange to be out in jeans and sweatshirts! We spent the rest of the weekend just relaxing at the house. Thomas and I watched some episodes of Desperate Housewives (shhh don't tell anyone he watched it with me :0) ) It was a fun way to start off thanksgiving vacation.
This picture is almost proof that having puppies really does prepare you for having children. Just before I snapped it he was chewing on the chair leg. (I think he is working on some more teeth)

Sweater vests

This picture is totally "pretend"... he isn't walking....

Happy Family...

So when I found out I was having a boy a few thoughts crossed my mind. One of them being... YES!!! I love little boys in sweater vests. Here is Jonathan in his first sweater vest. He wore it to church today. I love it! Even though I am pretty biased I think he looks pretty darn cute!
This weekend wasn't too exciting.. we went to church Friday night, Saturday night and today. We went to cute little Madyson's first birthday and I finally finished all of my report card "stuff". This week is conference week... I hope it all goes well and then it is THANKSGIVING BREAK!! yahoo!!! Oh and Jonathan has figured out the "wounded soldier" crawl... for the TV remote, newspaper, Roxy's tail.... pretty much anthing he shouldn't be putting in his mouth. But he would much rather just tell one of his slaves to get his toys for him. :0)

Sunday night update

It's been a while since my last post. Not too much to report. Things are school are busy with the holidays, report cards, and so on so I have been pretty tired when I get home so no time to blog. This weekend Thomas put together the high chair for Jonathan Bean. It is so much safer than him scooting himself around the kitchen island in his Bumbo and nearly doing a back flip out of it when I try to wipe his face (seriously how does he know he's not supposed to like that...) After a little chat with Grandma W about crawling on Friday he decided that he wants to extend the Grandma's prediction of 2 weeks to maintain his reputation of being predictable unpredictable. And he really prefers to be carried around as his main mode of transportation. So he is still just getting up on hands and knees and rocking or rolling really well to get the TV remote. That is fine with me little man, please wait as long as you want to crawl.
Saturday we went down to SB for a costco run, to see Katie's new house and pick up some block from Grandma. Thomas worked hard working some more on the planter box so we can plant the trees we bought last week. Jonathan and I hung out on a blanket in the backyard. It was such a beautiful day. In the evening we took a walk down to... be still my beating heart.... FRUGOS!!! I am so happy that it is now open, so yummy. Today was church and our good friends the Oates had their sweet baby Wesley baptised, we went over to their house for some yummy food. Then we all came home and took a long Sunday afternoon nap (surprise, surprise). I just finished the book Multiple Bles8ings that I picked up at Costco instead of working on Report Cards like I should have been... oh well tomorrow is another day! Thomas is off playing Hockey with Jason. Have a good night!
