Latest Craft

I took a break from quilting and made my friend a baby shower gift. Just an embelished onesie, but I love it! I am going to make one for Cyndal. Lots of fun! I love all things girly!

Suns vs. Cavs

Marcus bought some tickets for $10 a piece off ebay an hour before the game started. We called our friends, the Moores, to join us because they are Suns fans as well! We were able to find a last minute sitter for Lyza and we were on our way. It was so fun to go into the city and be in the fun atmosphere of the game. The fans here are crazy, so we cheered on the Suns in a more discrete way. They ended up loosing, but we had fun going anyway. Toward the end of the game a camera man came by and put a close up of Cyndal on the big screen for like 10 seconds! When we were walking to the car so many people pointed and said "Look there is that baby that was on the jumbo tron". Looks like we have a celebrity in the making!


We went on a nice walk today. Can you believe the snow has melted and it was 50 degrees outside! We definitely took advantage because a big storm is coming tomorrow. Lyza and I sang songs and Cyndal rode in her stroller not making one peep. I loved watching her study everything as we walked by. I was trying to take a picture of Lyza and I only got one semi decent one of her laughing because she thought it was funny to make silly faces in the other photos. She is so fun!

Rice Cereal & Curlers

Tonight we tried some new things. Cyndal had rice cereal for the first time and hated it! I don't remember Lyza hating it this much, maybe we will go straight to baby food. Then after bath time Lyza tried curlers. She is such a girly girl, and loved every second. She always is so willing and sits so still to do anything girly. She even sits well to paint her finger nails, then walks around so carefully until they dry.

Monday zoo day!

We have missed our Monday zoo days. Since it has been a little more bearable outside we decided to go meet some of our friends, and we loved every moment. Lyza, and I'm pretty sure Cyndal too, both have developed a love for animals. I can remember as a small child I loved it when my dad would take us to the pet and reptile stores. I could look for hours, and the same goes for today. I love to take the girls to the pet store and they enjoy it just as much as I do. The zoo is just as fun or even more! I cant wait for the spring so we can go every week!

Poor Cyndal

A couple days ago I was doing a friends hair while our hubby's were watching the kids. We heard some commotion upstairs and came to find out her little boy bit Cyndal. She was sleeping in her car seat when it happened. We all felt just horrible, just looking at her made your heart sink. Her cheek was a bleeding, blue goose egg! Part of me wishes I would have taken a pic earlier, but it is something I dont really want to remember. Now a few days later, it looks a whole lot better. I am glad babies heal quick!

Yes she did!

I told Lyza not to get down until she went to the bathroom. I came back a few minutes later to check on her, and she was sleeping! I couldn't believe it!

Marcus' Birthday

Marcus turned 27 this year. He didn't want to make a big deal of it so we kept it pretty low key. I woke up and made him a huge breakfast and Lyza assisted in the opening of the presents. Since he always figures out his gifts, sometimes even before I purchase them, he received some early. Can you tell I am still a little annoyed? We had some friends over for Marcus' favorite bbq boneless wings with carrots and celery and then some homemade ice cream cake. I am so thankful for my hubby, and am sooo glad he was born this day. Happy birthday honey.

Best Day Ever!!!

Today it was so warm! Its weird to say a 40 degree day is warm, but compared to what it has been it is! Anyway, Marcus skipped out on school to enjoy the day with us. We all bundled up to go play in the snow! We went sledding, made snow angels, had a snow ball fight, and Lyza even made yellow snow! Haha! We had a blast, and I know I will remember this day for a long time. We deserved a day like this after being couped up in the house for so long.! Lyza was skeptical at first, but she soon warmed up to the idea and started enjoying herself. Marcus and I felt like a kid again, I would have never thought being grown up would be this much fun! I loved seeing Lyza smile and bonding with her dad, little Cyndal seemed to enjoy being outside too! She just looked so darn cute in her cozy bunny outfit. It was so gratifying to have a day to bond, laugh and have fun!
