Potty Training Update

Well, I have some very good news to report! Collin has had no accidents for 2 days!! This includes naptime and overnight! I am so proud of our little man. The above pics are from yesterday morning when he was trying on Daddy's big boots. He loves to walk around in them and holds the laces up to help him lift his feet. He is bursting with charm and is continually working on learning new words and phrases. He speaks in complete sentences now, this is great since he didn't really even start talking until he was about 2 1/2. Now he sings and talks like it's going out of style. It is so wonderful! One of my favorite things he does happens every time we sit down to a meal or whenever we are praying together. When he prays, he says "Amen, Amen Mommy... and he will go around and say "Amen ???" until he has prayed for everyone. It is so precious. I love my little Collin!

Cosi visit

Last Saturday we went to Cosi with Phil, Rosie, Josh and Megan. It was a lot of fun! Take a look!

This pic was from earlier in the month, but it was too cute to pass by!

Buggy time.

Noah loved pretending to be a "Soda Jerk".

Mommy gives it a shot! I was totally into it!

I think Aaron, Noah Collin and Poppey could have stayed in this area all day! The objective was to build a bridge. Noah absolutely loved playing with real screws, nuts and metal! It was a dream come true for him!

It was such a fun day! Happy Birthday Uncle Joshy we had so much fun celebrating with you in this special way!!

Fun with Grandpa!

Here are a few pics from the other day when my dad met us at the mall for a a walk and then he treated us to Steak and Shake for lunch. For what it's worth, they have an amazing turkey club.

Our weekend with the Weldon's...

Last weekend we had the opportunity to "get out of town" with our dear friends Tim and Stephany. It was a blast. We had time to eat, drink and boy were we merry!

Our husbands got to the hotel a couple of hours after us, so we were able to chat and hang out. Here we are at PF Chang's while Aaron and Tim placed our togo order.

We ate dinner in our hotel lobby and headed back to our room for cocktails and relaxation!

Saturday we went saw a movie and then got dressed up for dinner. It was a great evening and a wonderful end to the weekend.

We had a great time and cannot wait until we get to do it again!

Snow Day ...

Last week we had a really nice snowstorm. I think we had near a foot of snow and ice. Aaron employer called him and told him they were closed and he could stay home. Here is what our day looked like, we went sledding, but didn't take the camera with us.

Aaron and Noah built this structure with our Tinker toys. I have no idea why Aaron has a halo.:)

Noah tried it on.

The boys loved it!!

Collin and Daddy make snow angels.

Noah give it a try, too!

It was a great day!!

Picture update, making up for lost time.

Here are some random pics for you...

Noah winking.

Collin winking.

I blogged about this pic the other day! Noah finally wanted to draw a person. This is his first stick figure, he said it was "Jesus".

Noah really loves to help in the kitchen. To be honest he actually is a big help. He helps me set the table for dinner every day and will clear all of the dishes after we eat. Here he is helping me make grilled cheese sandwich's. I had to scrape off about 2 TBSP of butter before I put them on the griddle, but he did an amazing job!!

Christmas Part 2 - finally!!!!!!!!!!

I was finally able to upload all of my pics! Yeah!! I hope you enjoy. This is how we celebrated Christmas at Grandma and Poppey Dell's house... (FYI The puppets you will see Noah and Collin playing with in one of the pictures were made by their wonderful Aunt Megan! She is amazing!)

A call for support!ll

Okay, so I am being brave today and asking for help! I need accountability with my eating. Over the holidays I put on a few pounds and I am terrified with how I am dealing with it. I am simply ignoring it. By saying ignoring it I am actually making poor choices and teetering on blowing everything! I don't want to loose anymore ground and I want to reach my goal of 75 lbs and I want to strengthen my relationship with God in the process.
So, if you feel so led, please drop me the occasional e-mail or a note on my facebook wall. I sincerely appreciate it!
