Austin's First Pine Wood Derby

While Danny was gone, Austin competed in his first wine wood derby race for scouts. Danny and Austin built the car before he left. And I am so proud of both of them. The car turned out great. We didn't anticipate winning, since it was his first year. These little cars are tricky and you have to learn by building one. Danny had made previous arrangements before he left for his dad to take Austin to the race, and I was very thankful. I was so sad to miss, but someone had to keep Addyson at home. And I truly no nothing about scouts.

To all of our suprise, Austin's car was a winner!!! He won 4th place in speed, and 5th place for looks. Way to go Austin!!! He will go to District in March, for speed and looks. I am so proud of Austin and Danny. The car turned out great, and Austin had so much fun!!!

Gotta Love Some Snow....Especially Unexpected

First Snowman of 2010

Look at what we got Monday morning, and totally unexpected. It was so pretty, while it lasted. I even went and picked up the boys so they could enjoy the snow. This was the first time that the snow would pack at our house. And we took advantage of it. We even made a little snow cream, and yes it was ooh so good. However, it melts really fast. We all enjoyed a bowl and maybe a little someone enjoyed her first bite.

Ewww Bananas

Addyson's least favorite fruit is bananas. Doesn't matter what brand or fresh, she gives us the funniest look and spits them out. I am a sneaky mommy though, and she does get some bananas in her diet. Such as the banana, apple, and pear baby food. She likes them as long as they are not plain. So here is a pic of her playing with a banana. She got it away from my mom (GiGi) when we were making some fresh banana's for her.

Addybell on the go

My days now are spent chasing after this sweet little angel. And sometimes, like you can see, she gets in some funny places. And sometimes, she gets herself stuck in funny places. She loves to explore and so far she loves checking out the living room and kitchen. She loves the air vents. And she loves to get her fingers stuck (ouch) in the vents, and sometimes it takes a little pam to get them unstuck. I love this stage, although none of us get much rest.

Only a few tears

My sweet, sweet hubby left for Birmingham Saturday night. Leaving me home, with a sick baby and hardly any sleep. So what did I do, I sat and cried, for awhile. I was a big girl and waited to cry till he was out of the driveway, I didn't want to make it any harder on him. He was already upset that he had to leave me home with a sick baby, and I was getting sick as well. I know that it doesn't matter how much you plan, you can't plan when your child will get sick.

Danny made it to Chicago yesterday around 11. His first flight experience, well it was horrible (not what I wanted). He had a nose bleed the entire flight. The flight attendant told him he may want to drive home. Please pray that his flight home will be a better experience. He is going to start taking some allergy medicine, and hopefully this helps. I think Addyson has given Daddy the cold too. He really has a busy couple of weeks with class, so he needs the energy to concentrate.

So I am home alone, sick, with three kids, and life is just crazy. At least I am honest, being sick can make you less patient and very moody. Thank goodness my mom is going to stay with me a few nights out of the week, and Danny's mom has offered to help too. I am one lucky girl to have my family so close, and a family that wants to help. Maybe this will help me keep my sanity.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!!
