A Big Boy Bed for Hank!

Since Hank is ready to be able to get out of bed by himself, we put away his playpen which has been his bed since he was 5 months old. He now sleeps on one of Grandma and Grandpas guest room beds with out the framing or box spring!! He sure likes it.
It took him a few restless fussy minutes to fall asleep, but here he is napping after lunch today! I put the camera in nightshot mode, the photo turned out impossible to see, so I turned the flash on and got this one. His room is very dark, we have blackout curtains up!

Happy Birthday Mark!

Mark had a birthday today!
He woke up early! Did his own thing!
He opened a gift from me- it was a nice silver Timex watch! I made him a card too!
I made him a scrumptious breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy and milk!
Mom and Dad Lewis called from Germany!
He took a nap before church
We kept Hank out of Nursery because of a runny nose.
We left Church early because of Hank and his runny nose and fussiness!
Hank napped, Mark relaxed.
I made Mark's favorite Martha Stewart Mac' n Cheese for dinner!
He is now relaxing again!
Happy Birthday!!!

This is one of my favorite pictures of the birthday boy, it was taken summer 2009!

Birthday photos plus a bonus picture!

My birthday was fantastic!
Thanks to all those who called, sent cards, sent gifts, and shared in my 29th birthday!
Mark made me breakfast! It was delicious! Later that day he gave me a gift, a device so I can listen to my music in the car. My CD player has been broken for years. Then for dinner he took me to eat Mexican food, my favorite!!! Hank loved dinner too!!!
My great Friend Janet and her family planned a birthday picnic for me.
Here Janet and I are posing! "Cheese!!!!"
Her kids!
I met them when Jay was 8 and Julianna was 6, that was 10 years ago!
Jules made most of the picnic lunch! She is such a sweetheart!!

Here is the bonus picture!

It's Halloween Time!

OK, here is my favorite Halloween display of all times!
This is the witches lair area!

I was so excited to decorate this balcony, it didn't turn out the way I imagined, but it will do!

"Arrrrrrrggghhh!" Don't loose your head!

October is the best!!

Happy Birthday to me!!
So, my tricky sister-in-law, Afton surprised me with a fantastic cake, the night before my b-day.
She made me a treasure chest cake. Wowee! This is the fourth, maybe it's the fifth, year she has made me a fancy cake. I will post photos of all the cakes she has made me, someday!!

Hank inspecting his hands and wishing they were clean!
He enjoyed the cake and sucked a little bit on the ring pop,
but wasn't sure about the candle necklace!

Hank and Afton during our family home evening activity!

Our FHE activity was cutting the pumpkins off the vines!
This is the night Afton surprised me with the cake!
Mark was the pumpkin carrier!

Strawberries and Sunglasses

Hank was "helping me pick strawberries last Thursday, and he decided to take a bite, which he has done before, but this time, he actually ate the strawberry, instead of spitting it out. He not only ate one, he ate about 5, maybe 6!
I wanted to take a picture of Hank with all the strawberry stains on his clothes, face and arms, just seconds before hand, he found these glasses and had to wear them, of course!!
"Hank!"......... Who, me?
I fabric painted his shirt! It brings me so much happiness!!!

Hank likes to smile!!
See the strawberry stains around his mouth, there is dirt too.

Just Monkeying Around!

In our toy area, which is in the downstairs hallway, we have Monkeys hanging from a clothing rod. Well, Hank was asking me in his language to get his monkey down, so I gave him his favorite one. Then he pointed to another, so I kept getting them down. He ended up wanting his monkey backpack on, so I helped him put it on. Then I suggested he wear all his monkeys. So he did!!
Get that Monkey off my back! Hehehehe!!

This was the first pictures I took, this is Hank wanting to see the picture before I was finished.

Hank is saying cheese!
Pots n' pans! This was Daddy's idea! Pretty funny!
(Hank was not hurt in the making of this photo!)

We are having a....

Baby Girl or Boy!
So, we went for our Ultrasound, and we had no luck seeing in between the legs of this baby.
We tried for an hour and a half and no luck! We for sure have a tricky one coming!
Here I am last weekend at 19 weeks!

Last night Mark surprised me with this! What a sweetheart!
We are counting down to my birthday which is in 8 1/2 days!

Hank and I went shopping, as I was putting groceries away he linned the diapers, wipes and tissues up and made a game for himself. He had a great time, walking back and forth!!
This past Sunday Hank had to stay home from church, I was incharge of the YW's lesson so Mark stayed home with him. When I got home, this is what I found!

They had a fun time!

Watching a show!
