Day 45 - February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day!

We celebrated last night with little gifts and Cole (and Jeremy) making his Valentine box and writing his classmates names on their treats.

I'm not about receiving cut flowers. I think it is silly. So instead Jeremy ordered me trees, Lilacs! Of course, they won't be here until April but that is a longer lasting gift. Sure makes me ready for spring!

Day 44 - February 13, 2012

Harder to get back into the routine of taking pictures every day than I thought it was going to be! Funny conversation with my son, who appears to be going through a growth spurt at the moment. I heard a very non-scientific reason for why boys (ages 10-20) are so forgetful, flighty, have no 'listening' skills,  and are just discombobulated if you will. Someone told me that because their bodies are growing and developing so much they don't have enough energy left to think! Haha!

Tonight we had an example:

Cole: I went to the garage and Ray (the cat) was sitting on your car still.
Me: Oh was he pouting? (got in a tiff with the other cat earlier, a lovers spat of sorts)
Cole: Pouting?
Me: Pouting.
Cole Pouting?
Me: Yes, pouting. Was Ray still pouting?
Cole: Pouting?
Me: Yes. Was Ray still pouting? Pouting.
Cole Pouting?
Me: Was. Ray. Still. Pouting?
Cole: Pouting?
Me: Yes, was Ray still pouting from earlier?
Cole Pouting?
Me: Nevermind.
Cole: Yeah he was still pouting.

And no, he wasn't doing this on purpose. He didn't even notice that I was rolling my eyes or that my husband was laughing, at him, not with him. Wowzers, he must need some extra sleep...

Day 40 - February 9, 2012

Day 40 already. I skipped posting right after my grandmother passed. Too much going on. Too much family to enjoy. Too much catching up on daily routines. So I'll catch you up! Lots of family, Cole turned 11, and the birds have been out to greet us in full force.

Cole and Delia (my niece/his cousin)

Delia and Samantha (best friend's daughter)
Cole Bday Party! (don't worry, just root beer)
