Funny Things My Son Has Said

This is one of our favorite photos taken from our shoot with Everyday Studios

Look at his happy laughing face! Which is why I chose it for today's blog post cause he's just really been cracking us up lately.

Here's a few of the Funny Things My Son Has Said Lately:

  • While I was puking in the toliet one morning last week Dane runs in yelling "MOMMY, DON'T COUGH UP THE BABY, DON'T COUGH UP THE BABY!" He was so serious too and it's really hard to be sick and laugh at the same time.

  • Pulling out of a Tim Horton's parking lot after a really yummy breakfast Brad and I over hear Dane in the backseat saying to himself....."I just really feel like I need to say a bad word right now" Now mind you, the only bad words Dane knows are God (using it in vain) and Butthead.

  • While having a discussion in the kitchen about whether the new baby will be a boy or girl. Brad says "If' it's a boy like me and you, there will be 3 boys and mommy along with Zoey and Kitty will be the only girls in the house." Dane replies by bending over with his hands on his knees and says laughing "Your really freaking me out here!"

    and 1 last one to today's post

  • Dane woke up from a nap when I was almost finished watching a documentry called 'The Business of Being Born' The last 10 minutes are devoted to breast feeding mostly. Dane says "Mom, Why is that baby sucking on her boob?!" I quickly explained. Then he replies......." Can I suck on your boob?!" I can see I'm going to have a VERY interested 3rd party while breastfeeding this 2nd baby.

The Clan

Minus Baby Zeke. Poor kid was tired and needed to nap.

I took Dane to the Dr. this morning. He's just never recovered from that cold I previously mentioned and then last night he complained of his ears hurting. He just cried and cried for hours yesterday. Dr. gave us a prescription for Amoxicillin. He should be feeling better in a day or two.

Brad's side of the family received some not so good news on Christmas. Grandma Burrey was taken to the hospital. Surgery was today to remove a tumor in her colon and during that more spots were seen scattered about. Please keep her and the family in your prayers.

Holiday Eye Candy

Look at these cutie-patooties I get to look at this holiday season!

Lucky Me :)
Matching sweaters courtesy of The Peterson's. Too cute.
As if they don't look enough alike as it is.

Dane is sick. Poor boy. Started as a 2 day low grade fever with alittle bit of a snotty nose. The fever moved on and left behind ALOT of snot and a TERRIBLE cough. Poor kid can't stop coughing. I was woke up last night by a coughing kid at my bedside who then proceeded to vomit on my arm and bed! He's just coughing so hard he can't help it. Brad was puked on today after lunch. Yuck. I sure hope he's better for Christmas.

Pretty as a Picture

My sister had me over to take some family photos last weekend. This one is my favorite. They are so cute, just love them to pieces.

Preggo Update: Movement detected! Just alittle. Nothing Brad can feel yet, but I can feel it from the inside when he lays his hand on the bump.

Cozy PJ's

A birthday gift from Momo & Papa Peterson. Dane loves his "hunter" pajamas! As a matter of fact he's worn them 2x in the last 4 days. I can't get them out of the dryer fast enough.

Preggo Update: 17weeks and counting. Nausea is much better throughout the day and evenings. Mornings are still a little touchy but MUCH BETTER than previous.

Clothing is starting to get pretty snug around the middle. Hoping it's starting to look more like a baby bump and me less like a fat girl. Strangely, I only gained 1lb at my last appointment. Doesn't seem right, but I'll take it.

Ultrasound scheduled for Jan 3rd. I'll be exactly 20 weeks at that point. I was a little disappointed, I was hoping to know for Christmas.

A bug themed birthday party.

Thanks goes out to my sister Randi for the help. It took us over 2 hours and buckets full of laughter to complete these masterpieces. Thanks to Brad for taking Dane and getting him out of the house for a couple hours so this could be done.
We had a great party, thanks everyone for attending.

Happy Birthday Baby!

From this.....

To this...... in 3 short years!

I took today off work. I had the vacation day to burn and this way I can spend the day with Dane and have alittle fun:) Plus, We need to get this house in shape for the birthday party tomorrow!

Here he is in the cop uniform that Uncle Jim gave him for his birthday. He's practicing his mean face to scare away the bad guys! Are you scared yet?!

I've spent the morning attempting to upload a video of Dane opening his present from Brad and I with no success. Grrrr. I don't have the time to work on it anymore right now, so I'll try again later.

A Country Christmas

A couple weeks ago Dane and I went down to the Zanesfield Turkey Raffle. We didn't win a turkey but we did win the door prize which was a family pass to Marmon Valley Farm and A Country Christmas.

We'd never done this before. Marmon Valley is all set up with lights, a wagon ride, pony rides, cookies/crafts, a petting zoo, and Christmas tree's for sale.

The pony was a definite hit!

All cozied up in the hay for the wagon ride.

The wagon ride takes you all over the farm stopping in different locations to see scenes from the bible and the birth of baby jesus. Dane loved this and was so quiet watching the mini plays.

The petting zoo. A bit of a let down, only had bunnies (seen below), ducks, chickens, and ponies.

All bundled up with my baby!

Finally, It's here!

For those of you who read this blog on the regular, you know I received this old channel back chair back in July.

Then you'll also know that not soon after I fell in love with this Robert Allen for Dwell Studio print called Gate.

The fabric was not available to the general public till today......I've been checking almost daily since July!!! It's now up for sale on the Dwell Studio website and it's actually affordable! I want it SO BAD! Why'd it have to wait till now to come up for sale, when my husband is jobless and I'm such a tightwad or let's use the word frugal, that sounds better.

I had it in the shopping cart and everything but stopped myself or rather Brad guilted me alittle, but he's probably right.

But while I'm still dreaming...... I really like this fabric too and had a yard of it in the cart so I could make a couple throw pillows for the couch and or chair.

Well, enough of that. Gotta put it behind me for now. We're in self preservation mode around here till spring and the money starts rolling back in. OR I just had a brillant idea, Maybe my work Christmas bonus!?!

December 1st and it snows. It actually is pretty to look at from the windows of my toasty warm house but I have to go to work in a few hours and not looking forward to it. Brrrrrr.

Here's a photo of storytime with Mariana that I took a few months ago. The book was a spooky mickey mouse halloween book, I love the furrowed brow and look of concern on Dane's face. Funny.

Sending out birthday invites today for Dane's party next weekend. I can't believe he's gonna be 3 already, time flys. He's been talking about his birthday for months. It's totally adorable to hear him tell people his birthday is December 10th.

Preggo Update: Something about getting up at 5am makes me puke. Is it cause I'm still tired? or cause I'm getting ready for work and don't have time to just sit for a few minutes and eat something slowly? The days I get to sleep in alittle, I'm fine. I rise slowly, head downstairs and lay around on the couch for awhile while I slowly munch on something. I have been feeling better throughout the day though which helps a ton!

Just a few more weeks and we'll get to find out the sex of this bun in the oven! Really excited, but I think I already know the result. We'll see. It should be around Christmas time, what a fun present!
