Ok Ok....

So I've been a total slacker in updating this lately... It's not for lack of material, or even for lack of time (since I'm on break right now)...just lack of motivation. But I really will put some new stuff up...hopefully before the end of the year.

Bear with me!

I'll post pictures later....

This evening.

I promise.

So silly...

I've discovered that life with a two-year old is NEVER boring. Take these stories for example:
  • While at Grams', when Zach and Alec (aka Popeye) were jumping on the bed, they had to take off their shirts so that they could see their belly buttons.
  • Yesterday, Grams heard a strange sound coming from the living room, and when she looked, Zachary was licking the cat. Yes, LICKING THE CAT. The strange sound was him "puh-puh-ing" to get the fur off his tongue. When I asked him, "Did you lick Baby Bear?" his reply was an enthusiastic, "YEAH!"
  • "No mama" is his newest favorite phrase. I have been prohibited from dancing, singing, commenting on Little Einsteins or any other show, and touching his airplanes or any other toy.... Hmmmm...I thought the parent-embarrassment factor didn't kick in until 12-13.
I can hardly wait to see what the future brings....


The famous Louie...

November 2006
I'm not entirely sure the affection is mutual...


Hand Foot Mouth Disease

Yup, he's got it. NO FUN.

For those of you unfamiliar with this little coxsackie (honest to goodness, that's what it's called) virus, look here.

Luckily, his spirits have been mostly good...he just can't eat because "Hut me! Mouth!" But we'll survive.

Musical prodigy?

I adore this photo!

Such a ham...

Painting Fun

Boy + Shredded Paper + Fan =

September 2006
This series of pictures was temporarily misfiled
(it even happens with digital files!), but I wanted to share
it because I think it's hilarious.

Zachary discovers the trashcan full of shredded
paper and decides to see what will happen when
he holds the shreds up to the fan...

The result...

But being the great boy he is, he helped to clean up

And he is nothing if not thorough!


Super Sickies...

Sorry for the delay in updates...we've been battling a couple rounds of strep throat (Chris & I), and Zach's constant runny nose (the amount of kleenex we're going thru is truly amazing).

We bought a new camera however, so there's lots of material to put up...once I'm healthy enough to do so.

Black Tuesday


How can the tide be turning across the ENTIRE nation, but Idaho somehow manages to elect nearly ALL Republicans???

And pass the marriage amendment?

And defeat funding for schools?

I've GOT to move to another state. I can't cope with this.



Oh my. We haven't had a nite like last nite for....well, I don't know how long.

Between dogs wanting to patrol the backyard for squirrels (It's the MIDDLE OF THE NITE! THEY'RE SLEEPING!) and Zachary waking up at 1 AM - I think due to a stuffy nose (yup, I think our household is descending into illness YET AGAIN) - and then not going back to sleep until 345 AM, it was a short nite's sleep for me.

Where are those toothpicks to prop my eyes open when I need them???



"Poop fly"

Last nite, we had Chinese food for dinner and with Chinese food, you always get fortune cookies... So, after we ate, we broke them out and gave Zach one (his first)...he took one look at it and said, "Poop fly!" (what he calls houseflies).

Chris and I cracked up. And then explained to him that it was a cookie and told him how to break it open. His first fortune read: THERE IS FAME IN YOUR FUTURE.

What an excellent first fortune for my poop fly boy.

What a silly nut boy.

Look at that marvelous crayon grip!!


Boo at the Zoo

October 2006
With the cutest little dragon that ever was!!!

More costume pics and stories about Boo at the Zoo
to come!


We broke 9000 hits! Amazing.

Thanks for your continued interest in my child, the cutest baby this side of the Mississippi (so as not to offend my friends on the other side who also have pretty cute kiddos).

October rain

October 2006
Earlier in October, on a particularly warm day
(thus the shorts), we had a big rain storm come
thru, and Zach couldn't resist going outside to
get wet in the rain.

A little blurry, but you can see he got pretty wet.
I guess that made it a successful venture.

Silly bath pictures

Davey....Davey Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier

October 2006
The "coonskin hat" was a product of our first
visit to our new Cabela's store...

Poop face

No, Zach didn't call anyone that...tonite, as he was getting ready for bed, he pulled a wipe from the container and proceeded to wipe his face with it, saying, "Poop...face....poop....face."

Very funny!!!

Who knew talking was going to be this much fun???


Oh my.

I heard this on NPR this afternoon and was completely dismayed....

" States don't come much redder that Idaho." WHAT??? I knew this was a conservative state, but COME ON people!

I've got to move to a blue state. The bluer the better, frankly.



This is what Zachary decided to yell repeatedly in the bathtub tonite.

No idea what he thought was unfair, as he was facing the wall when he was yelling, but he obviously felt compelled to state his opinion.

What a nut.

I've used the Google. Have you?

This is hilarious. The leader of the free world. Sheesh.


On this date in 2004

We were at George & Jocele's wedding...
look at that sweet baby!
(Happy Anniversary guys!)

Silly zoo video

Zach loves the penguin statues
outside the penguin exhibit...
He loves to run around them saying,
"Huge! tiny. Huge! tiny."
What a silly boy.


Another trip to the zoo

October 2006

The carousel is a regular thing when we visit
the zoo now...just like sharing a
root beer float before we leave ("foat juice")

Looking for penguins

No moose on the loose here
(Funny story: as we were heading down the path
to get to the moose exhibit, we walked under
an oak tree where a squirrel happened to be
perched. The squirrel dropped (or threw) an
acorn right as Zach walked by, hitting him smack
on the head with it. Unfortunately, I missed this
event, but Chris was a witness, and for the rest of
our zoo trip, Zach kept saying, "Acone, head" and rubbing
his head. It was hilarious.)
