I love this one!  He was in the mood to get his picture taken! :)

First Haircut

Today was a big day in our house... Maxwell got his first hair cut!  He has probably needed it for quite awhile, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it, then last week he was called a girl several times, so I decided it was time.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We celebrated big in our house the last couple of weeks we have been doing little Valentine's Day things here and there.  We watched a couple of movies "Winne the Pooh's Valentine" being one of the boys' favorite- on VHS no less!  We baked cupcakes for our playgroup, painted our hands, got our photos taken in "Robot" shirts made by Mommy, made handprint cards for our family, made Daddy a fun picture frame, heart shaped Rice Krispie Treats... just to name a few!  We even did some learning activities for the boys such as heart patterns, making sticky Valentine Hearts (small motor skills), heart balloon batting game, making play dough hearts, and sensory things for Maxwell as well.  I know we did a few other things I am forgetting, but all in all it was a fun holiday!  Here are some pictures of our February so far!

 Cards we sent to Grandparents and Daddy.  Jackson even wrote his own name.  Jackson's handprint was on the outside and Maxwell's on the inside.  Found this idea on Pinterest. I changed it to fix us, but it was so cute!  Life is Sweet.

 Having red jello at our lunch at Great Grandma Joan's with Grandpa Larry.
 Jackson using Valentine cookie cutters with our homemade play dough.
 The boys playing the balloon batting game.  Also found on Pinterest.  Jackson kept saying, "I am so good at this game!"  They had a great time with the balloons as always! from the
 My VERY talented friend, Rachel Martyn took these great pictures of the boys at her new studio in her basement!  She is so GREAT!  The boys were less than cooperative, but it was fun overall and there were a couple of great pictures out of the bunch!!

I Love you Because...

I decided to make this little number after seeing the idea on Pinterest.   Here is the link to the original from A Content Housewife.  I love it and can't wait to put it to use for Andy... I don't tell him enough how much I love him!

If anyone reading this is interested in a copy of the one that I made, shoot me an email.  I can change the colors, the background, all of it.  I made this one gray and yellow, because it matches our bedroom.  I am going to use wet erase markers (overhead markers for you teacher folks), but you could use dry erase, it just won't show up as nicely.  I also would suggest that the frame you put it in have glass, because sometimes plastic will show the colors of markers.

February 2012

Well, it's been quite some time since I posted last... I believe November.  Just been busy and not in the mood, I guess.  But I will try to get some motivation and post more, if not writing, just pictures!
