February 16th-28th

Sorry for the extra long post this time. I have been sick for the last two weeks! YUCK! I am just starting to feel better. Good news is that I have still been taking a picture each day! Some are not the most exciting, but hey at least I remembered :)

February 28th
My mom and I look forward to this night every year! The Dessert Extravaganza! Pay $20 and get to sample all the candy, cookies, cakes and pies that you want. They have a silent and live auction too! My mom won some Cookie Lee jewelry in the silent auction and we won a trip to the Rubicon Trail for my dad and Sean in the live auction. We always have such a great time. But next year we are bidding on something for just us!

Today my baby went to "school" If you want to know the truth, it is child care that is offered during my MOMs group. I have been thinking that Ian might need to go to preschool. So as a trial Grandma and I took him to my MOMs group today. He did GREAT! He loved it and can't wait to go back. Here he is playing with his friend Sean. And, I guess school really wears you much for lunch!

My latest creation! I saw this idea on this blog. She actually purchased the apron die cut online. I had to take a crack at it on my Cricut. I think it is adorable! I designed it, assembled it and decorated it. Only took me all day :) But now I can probably complete one in 15 min (if I can decide on a color). Whaddaya think?

Yep, I am sick again. This time I wish it was just that cold I had last week. No luck this time...stomach flu :| So here is a picture of the low grade temp I have been running for the last few days. Seems to be going around here though. I am starting to feel better so hopefully this is the end of it.

I had an appointment with my ophthalmologist today. Can you believe it has been almost a year since I had surgery to fix my torn retina? Well my eye still isn't perfect, may never be, but she said that Dr. Equi did a wonderful job and it looks great. So now I don't have to go back for six months. Can you tell which eye they fixed?

February 23rd
We went to the mall with Grandma to get Aunt Ruth's watch fixed today. And she was so nice to buy us an ice cream at Dairy Queen! As you can see Ian made himself comfortable, and a mess. LOL

February 22nd
Have to thank my mom for this one! She bought me the Deceptively Delicious book. I bought a huge bags of spinach and carrots at Costco and I was determined to make something. So, here they are...brownies! And yes, they have 1/2 cup of both spinach and carrots. Well the chocolate expert (Ian) wasn't too crazy about them but Sean seemed to really liked them (he ate all but three of them!) To me they seemed to have a strange aftertaste, (can you say spinach?). But hey someone liked them!

February 21st
WooooHoooooo! I got my BzzAgent package today! I am a member of a website called Bzzagent. So you get invited to campaigns and spread the word, and coupons, about the product the marketer wants to promote. So I was invited to join the Chili's Guiltless Grill campaign. I was soooooo excited! I LOVE Chili's! They sent me 4 coupons to try their new Guiltless Grill Menu. I have not eaten anything off that menu yet, but the best thing about the menu is that everything is less than 750 calories per entree. So, you might want to try it too!

Here are my two guys flying airplanes. Sean bought a flight simulator game so he could practice crashing, errrrr I mean flying his r/c airplane. Well now Ian loves to practice too. His only criteria is that the plane MUST have a pilot in it or he won't fly it. The boy definitely know what he wants!

Why must he wear his hot chocolate? Yes he did it again, he found the Hershey's Syrup in the fridge and made himself some cold "hot chocolate" this time. He does love doing things by himself.

February 18th
Ian loves to "drive" my car, well any car for that matter. So this time I adjusted the seat all the way up so he could reach the steering wheel easily. He had to have his seat belt on. What a good boy. And like every car trip we take we had to have music, but not any music! It HAS to be George Strait! He knows the entire CD! I know this is supposed to be a picture-a-day, but I had to show you the video of him "driving" too.

February 17th
Ian got a new toy today thanks to Madeline and Gloria. The Crayola Glow Station! He loved it at Gloria's birthday party so of course I had to buy one. Good thing I had a gift card for Target and only paid $8.50 including shipping! I have to admit, it is pretty cool! He loves to draw circles and use the stencils. I had to take two pictures so you could see it in the light and dark. Cool huh?

February 16th
