Friends For Life

Dane and I made handmade rolled pretzels for fun last Friday and then invited his cousins over to eat them and play. Here are some pics of Dane showing them his new memory game app that I put on the Ipod. Apparently it's pretty funny.

I love these crazy kids.

Too Fast!

This is the used dirtbike that Dane got at Christmas time. Brad finally got it up and running last weekend. Turns out that it's WAY too fast! Pretty sure it's just a 50cc but it's definitely got some pepp! So much so that Brad rode it around the yard and crashed. Ha! Guessing Dane's not going to be riding this thing for a long, long, long time.
Regardless he was so happy to just look at it and sit on it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

The Valentine's Day card kit I ordered from Paper Source. We had so much fun making these little mustache men. We assembled approx. 18 of these cuties to pass out to his preschool classmates and for friends and family.

Is There Anything Better?

Dane & Olive had a great time during bathtime earlier this week.

Olive loves to watch him play in the tub.

and he loves to be the entertainer!

Olive is charmed by him ;)
Smiles all the way around


Is there anything better than baby giggles. I don't think so and I challenge you to be anything but happy after you see this!

P.S. We purchased a new comptuter a few weeks ago. I love it. Brad also surprised me with Photoshop! I'm not super loving it right now. So if you notice that my pictures are "funny" looking in color/contrast, etc that's probably why. I just haven't had the proper time to sit down and work through it.

Brad, Olive & Shoes

You must be thinking that I must take this baby's picture everytime I sit her down. Welll, Your right! Giggles. It's not every time. I just can't help myself. She's such a doll!
It's no secret that Olive loves shoes.
This picture cracks me up. She's so excited!
Brad helps put her shoe back on. He's such a sucker for her.

Euchere & Pizza

By the title of this post you may think we had alittle card party or something. Nope, No card party here. Just a couple of lizards.

My parents returned from their vacation to Florida with 2 lizards for Dane. No we didn't ask them was a suprise for Dane (and his parents who had zero intentions of letting any reptile into the home). No big deal because they will probably die soon anyway or so I thought. What I didn't account for is that Brad would run hog wild with the lizard thing and borrow an aquarium from the neighbors and go out and buy a heat lamp. He's nuts.
When returning home from work the next day Brad had done some research. We have a boy lizard and a girl lizard and they breed in the spring. Oh uh. We might have a lizard farm. He also rattled off what kind they were, what they like to eat, what temp they thrive in, etc etc.
Regardless Dane was surprised and loves them. He named them Euchere and Pizza.
Now I have a little aqarium in the kitchen.
This is the male. The larger of the two. His name is Pizza.

Here is Euchere. She's pretty and petite and much more active than Pizza

Discover The Dinosaurs

Last Sunday we took Dane & Olive to the Discover The Dinosaurs exhibit at Dayton Convention Center. We had a pretty good time. The dinosaurs exhibit part was pretty neat. Some of the dinosaurs were animated so they roar and move and you could see them "breathing." It was pretty realistic. Well I guess I don't really know that, I wasn't alive then but I believe it was pretty realistic anyway.
There was some disappointment though. The also had a bunch of blow up dinosaur bouncers and even 2 dinosaurs that you could ride. Sounds cool right?? Wrong! The exhibit was only open for 2 days so it was SO BUSY! It was down right packed! The lines to get to these 2 cool things were extremely long....EXTREMELY. Like wrap around the building long :( So we just left after we saw the dinosaurs.

Olive @ 8 months

8 months already!? She is growing like a weed! Here's my attempt to sweep her hair to the side. It only works temporarily and bow/clips just slide right out. She seems to have no natural part so I'm trying to create one and for now just slick it to the side. I've had some complaints on her looking like a "sheep dog" but really what are you to do with this much silky soft hair on a baby? I refuse to pull it up into the top of her head in a pony. That's just ridiculous.

Aw, She's just so sweet. Still my little finger sucker.
Olive is so kissable.
As soon as anyone picks her up they immediately plant kisses all over her cheeks.
This expression is on her face alot these days.
She must be exploring her new top teeth with her tongue.
