30 Days Of Winter +Day 18

I haven't really been keeping up on my 30 Days of Winter... I can only hope that I can get through to the 30 days before spring comes along... I better get crackin!
Today I spent the afternoon to myself... It was what I needed. Time to myself... even though I wasn't getting a manicure or pedicure or soaking in the bath... it was just me time. I went to the mall and found the cutest thing for my nephew, Jude Matthew. His dedication is March 8th and I so can not wait to give the gift I got! I can barely hold in all my excitement... I love giving gifts... :)*A Thank You To Ashlee For This Photo :)
Isn't he just so adorable and peaceful! Yeah, I thought so too. :)
At the mall I also got an Aunt Annies Pretzel, because those are so good, and sat and ate it. I didn't rush around and rush to get home. I just chilled, and sometimes I have a hard time doing that. As I was walking out of the mall I noticed the book store, but new that I shouldn't buy a book when we're trying to sell some. Instead I found out where the public library is, and you know what I did, I got a library card. I checked out 2 books and have already started reading one, and it's pretty good. I also stopped at Wal-Mart to refill our water jug pick up some milk and peanut butter.
Speaking of peanut butter... aren't those recalls crazy.
Well... we're watching a movie enjoying our evening, and I hope ya'll are enjoying your Saturday evening!

Fix It Friday
What I did was extremely simple... I just fixed the blemishes and made her eyes pop more, then added a little boost to it. I would go into more detail just do not have the time.

30 Days Of Winter +Day 17

Having a baby over night really makes me glad we're waiting a while before we have kids. Don't get me wrong, I love being with babies and taking care of them. I'm just so not ready to have one of my own. Jeremy and I had Tristan again the other night and he just did not want to go to sleep, so I got to bed at almost midnight, when I'm used to getting to bed earlier than that. BUT... once he did fall asleep he was quietly sleeping! YAY...
30 Days Of Winter
See... I LOVE KIDS!
I'm getting all my information together for my CDA. It's a credential (certificate) stating I can be a director of a daycare. I took my classes awhile back but now I'm ready to have my test. I have been working hard, getting all my information together, now I just have to mail it out with money, yeah, it cost me. :) Once I have my credential I go from Assistant TO THE Director to Assistant Director.

I need to get crackin on my days of winter here, the spring is nearing closer and closer everyday. At least I want to think that it is. :)
I took this photo in the office, I was testing some things out, and ended up liking it. This lamp has helped us see through many a nap times! Thank you lovely green lamp!

And this guy looks so cool in sunglasses! WHew!We took a road trip this year, our first one together and as a married couple, and it was definitely worth the sore butt!
He's got the cutest little tooshie... Seriously... what did you look at first the pole or his toosh!?

30 Days Of Winter +Day 15

Birthday parties are so much fun, especially a 5 year old's birthday party. They are the best! We had our nephews birthday party to go to and it was at the Children Museum, never heard of it, but great place for kids. They had a whole grocery corner with miniature shopping carts, they had a restaurant where you can take peoples orders and go make some pizza in the "oven" and they had a fairy tale corner where you could dress up and pretend; it was awesome. I actually LOST Jeremy in all the excitement! I was with Baby Blue and we were playing with EVERYTHING, she was everywhere, I turn around and Jeremy is GONE! Finally someone told me he was in the dress up corner dressing up in little itty bitty kids clothes. He was cracking everyone up! I'm sure if you can picture a grown man in little kids clothes... yeah... it's funny! Gosh, I love him!

*****
Kids can find fun in the smallest of things... like pouring popcorn kernals into another cup...
or folding towels... seriously... it's fun... especially for the kids at my work. We have LOTS of fun with RUGWORK... hence the rugs.
Find the simpliest thing for you child to do and THEY WILL HAVE FUN!

Try it with your kids... keep it SIMPLE!

30 Days Of Winter +Day 14

He's born, he is in the world!!! Everyone meet Jude... he's my nephew... and I'm his godmother... no I'm not bragging about it, I'm just excited about it!
He looks like his daddy, that is for sure!

*****
Also... I got to watch my other nephew Tristan for a whole night. This was my FIRST time watching an infant who is only 8 weeks old. AND he did so good. He SLEPT through the whole night, but of course his little coos woke me up, and I just had to make sure everything was okay! And it was... I took him to his daddy the next morning and I went to work. Surprisingly enough I was pretty awake, and wasn't very tired, until it came to be the end of the day, then I started to get sleepy, but who wouldn't? :)

*****
Jeremy and I were given this BEAUTIFUL yet SIMPLE desk... I love it! I still need a chair, but hopefully Jeremy and I will get one this weekend! I would like to sit at it rather than kneel at it on my knees, it gets uncomfortable after awhile! :)
Here's my little corner...I was reading some material about children, because I work with CHILDREN!

******
Also... I put some old music on my laptop the other night because I want to sell the CDs in my brother in laws online Book Store. As you can see most of these bands are OLD but I still like to listen to some of the them... so sue me!
Question:: What is your all time favorite CD?
