Another day=another snow day! I don't really know what we're going to do with ourselves today. Bucky's day off was yesterday so we had a super time with us all being home. Everyone except Adam had naps, we had a great supper, enjoyed a dance party, and then watched Survivor and a (very fast thanks to DVR) American Idol. One of the interesting highlights yesterday was waking up from a nap with Adam saying, "Look what I did!" He was beside my bed with no clothes on! He thought it was so funny!

Luke is going to Berry this weekend since Bucky, Adam and I are going tubing on Sunday. This will be an all day affair. Adam has been counting down the days. I hope he enjoys it.

Luke said Da Da last nght. He's really been getting good with his g and c sounds and out of nowhere starts on his d sound last night. It was so neat! Right now he's sitting in his high chair with no food. He just likes it there.

Better go and do something productive today. In a perfect world, we'd spread out these snow days instead of having them all together.

Luke is seven months today. Wow! We have been blessed.

Luke in the high chair!

Both meals today Luke has been in his high chair. He had oatmeal for breakfast and squash for lunch. So far he's a neat eater and he loves to bang on the tray part of the chair. What a big boy! Also, notice that Luke is in "big boy" pajamas which means shirt and pants and no sleeper. Time flies!

We've had people look at our house. Yay! People looked Thursday and another potential buyer looked yesterday. This is very exciting. In another development, we know of a couple who might rent our house if we don't find a buyer by mid March. Here's a special shout out to Mae Mae and Sharon for vacuuming the place and for spraying air freshener too. Nice touch! Hope it works!

We watched the Indians play Harrison County last night. We got beat by 26 points. Yikes. It was nice to see some people I haven't seen in ages. We talked to Coach Reitz, Ronnie Spicer, Lee Kendall, Mike Aldridge, and my cousin Leigh. I admired Joe Joe from afar! Ha! Sherry, remember when he asked me if I was going to go to class one day and I told him no. I think we were roaming the halls during Journalism. Ah, memories.

The boys took their first bath together on Thursday night. I took some pictures but they didn't turn out very good. Luke LOVED it. He splashed around. Adam thought it was neat too.

I've made muffins this morning but so far I'm the only one up. Bucky is doing some devotions at Upward today and then we are heading to Lexington for a Parent Teacher Store trip and to NY and Co. for me to use a really good coupon.

Snow Day

Another snow day today and already another tomorrow. No problem. We are enjoying being home but miss Buck while he's with the GCC Staff. Adam stays busy as does Luke. I've finished a book and have tried to do laundry and other little things.

Adam's favorite Wildcat is Demarcus Cousins or "The Man with the Headband." We found this headband at church in some stuff the other night and couldn't resist. Right now he's "playing" the Dirty Birds (Louisville) and rocking out to his playlist on itunes. Quite hysterical.

Adam met Gage, the boy next door today during our TWO HOUR play in the white stuff. He's a fifth grader. They had a blast together. We all three had a snowball fight. FYI: Luke was down for a nap and I did multiple checks on him.

I tried to capture a good picture of Adam today. I told him to open his eyes. He very clearly said he couldn't hold his eyes open. I think it's cute.

Almost Forgot...

Luke's 6 month pictures.....

One more thing....It should be noted that I took all the pictures today. I'm sure the neighbors got a kick out of me taking shots with a boy in one hand and a camera in the other. Mother of the Year, you know!
I have internet at the house. I was working on some pictures and just randomly clicked Internet Explorer and had success. I figure I will order some pictures and do some things while I have it.

It's a snowy Monday. We are out of school and as you can see by pictures we played outside. Bucky's on a staff retreat so it's me and my fellas. Good times.

Valentine's Day was great. I got my roses in the form on tennis shoes. Gotta love this tradition!

We looked at a house yesterday. Neat home but I don't think it's a good location for us. Plus the laundry is just in a closet in the hall and I prefer a room. It's just one thing I don't think I will budge on. I wish we could sell the home in Jamestown. Any takers?

Luke has tooth #3. Adam had no cavities when we went to the dentist but we are supposed to be brushing better around the gum areas. The top left area seems hardest to reach.

Enjoy the pictures.

Hello! We had a blast at the Super Bowl party. I made buffalo chicken dip and it was delicious. I was so thankful I'd eaten a salad at lunch because there were so many good things there! Adam had a big time playing with Braedon, Ryan, and the other kiddos. Luke was up the whole time. He was so cute in his Bengals jersey. I can remember when Adam wore that one! Memories! We got home late and then I messed up my alarm somehow so I woke up fifteen minutes late. Never fear because we were all out the door on time!

I think snow is coming our way. We have Adam's appointment in Lex. tomorrow so we'll see tomorrow if we'll go. If I know Bucky we will be there with bells on.

I got to sub today. It was for a fifth grade teacher that I really like. By the way, I am teaching some math and this is a total stretch for my brain but it's been a growing experience for me I guess you could say. Yesterday I put on a show using the Amy Melton method for teaching angles....a cute, cute, cute, little angle and an OBTUSE angle. Amy, you'd be proud! Oh, how I sometimes think back to good days at UC and all those looks we'd give across the hall. Has Big Kahuna been down or The Eagle? Ha!

We don't have anything tonight. I want to get in bed early!

Alicia, if you're reading, we got the bumbo seat and love it even thought Luke somehow seems to always lean one way or the other.

Hello! It's February and I can't quite believe it! I started out the month with pink eye. I woke up on Monday morning at 3:30 am with a feeling I'd had before. My right eye was so sore and I knew there was lots of junk in it. I went to the doctor and got drops. I am going back to school tomorrow. I HATE to miss but it couldn't be helped. I must say that without mascara my blonde eyelashes make me look strange. It's fine at home but out in public I feel strange.

Adam has a cavity I think. He's complained about the upper right part of his mouth a few times and then last night he wouldn't let me look at it because he said it hurt. I made him an appointment with Dr. Haywood Smith in Lexington. Joy Shearer takes Sophie and Jack there and she's been pleased. Their website is super cool and so I think it will go well. We go on the 9th. Luke goes for his sixth month check up tomorrow afternoon.

I am going to head to Lord's Ladies tonight. It's GCC's version of the Guild as far as I can tell. I think we are doing something Valentiney. Bucky will watch the boys and probably watch the UK game early. I would like for Adam to take an early bath and then be ready for bed right when the game goes off.

More later.
