Maeli...Meet Santa


So Bailey tagged me to think of six things about me:

1. I eat french fries in groups of odd numbers arranged by length

2. I am VERY clumsy, which I get from my mother, and which baffles my husband. I can fall all the way to the ground and hit my face when there is nothing around to trip on.

3. I have what my family calls "Flintstone thumbs" They look more like toes, but no one seems to care as long as they are getting massaged.

4. I'm afraid to answer the door when I know its a Pizza delivery guy on the other side. I don't know why, always have been.

5. I don't like my food to touch other food on my plate. The only exception is I sometimes will mix my mashed potatoes with corn. And I smoosh my ice cream together which Jeremy thinks goes against my no touching rule.

6. I love to organize things, everything needs a place (and a label), but sometimes when everything is on the floor for a few days, thats okay too. My need for organization comes and goes.

So Happy and So Proud

I could not be more proud of how much you've been able to accomplish the past few years. I know that marriage brought your GPA down, and now, having a Maeli is an even bigger distraction. I know that you dream of doing something huge with your life and your education, finding a way to help people (with out having to deal with the majority of the people out there :0) And I know that you'll do many great things in this life, but I hope you know what a great thing you are in my life. You mean the world the me and to Maeli, we will always love you and we are so proud of all that you've done, and all that you are doing. I can't wait to see what other blessing await us, and where the future will take our family. You are the best everything.
I love you

Winter Activities

I finally got all of our Christmas treats baked and ready to go delivered. This years was a challenge, first, I threw a surprise graduation party for Jeremy. In order to get him to the location (our friends' house) I told him we would be "delivering goodies" so I ad to bake at least some to keep u appearances. However, when our family came for the real graduation, a lot of the baked good got eaten and I kind of had to start all over. Not that I mind, I would trade all the goodies for more family...but it is a lot of work. But thanks to Jeremy, half the treats are even already delivered. Since we leave in one week I better get the move on.

Winter has been in Pullman since we got back at Thanksgiving...it seems we were so busy that we missed the splendor of our "winter wonderland" and now, knowing that we'll be looking at this same ice for the next 4 months just makes me sad. Part of me hopes we get fresh new snow over Christmas break so we can enjoy it, the other part of me just yearns for Spring. If I wake up one of these days and things are pretty again, I'll take outside pictures, in the mean time, we just bundle up to head out there.

A mover and a Shaker

So we're not actually crawling yet, but if you turn your back for just a second Maeli is all over the place. Sitting up, she can scoot, but this last picture is as close to hands and knees as she gets right now. You can tell she knows she's supposed to do something, but she tends to get frustrated and cry until you sit her back up. Its pretty cute though. The other day she was sitting in the middle of my bed, and I went to the bathroom. When I got back she was hanging over the side talking to the toy that had fallen on the floor. I guess we can't just leave her on the bed anymore.
