Rough Morning

It was only yesterday that I was bragging about how my car always starts in bad weather. I wanted Paul to have the car today due to the terrible cold. Guess what? It didn't start!!! We have AAA but couldn't get anyone here. Finally Tom was nice enough to come and give us a boost only to find out that the booster cables didn't work and we needed gas line antifreeze. Guess what? It still didn't start. It's days like today that I really hate only having one car. I know I should be grateful, and I'm trying. But it's hard enough with one car, never mind NO car.

Christmas Cookies

Well, it's been so cold that we have pretty much been staying in, which can be challenging for an active two year old. So, we decided to make Christmas cookies last night. Unfortunately, you can't tell the difference between my cookies and Will's hahaha

School's in Session

While I was doing some baking tonite, Will was happily playing with his toys, singing and reading his books. The tv was off and I had some music playing. At one point I heard him say, "okay Elmo, there go". I look behind me and this is what I saw. He had his two Elmo's seated at the table and he was proceeding to give one a toy to play with and one his food fridge magnet for "lunch". It was just too cute.

Quality Control

I was doing some Christmas baking tonite and Will was my tester. Ummm, I think he liked it!!!

What's Wrong With This Picture?

If you take a good look at this picture, you'll notice that there are strange markings around my TV.

Well, the other night I had some music on louder than usual because I was rehearsing. I am part of a band called J40. It stands for Jeff's 40th Birthday party. We're doing it for fun for his birthday in Jan. (killer band I might add) Anyway, I was rehearsing and Will was playing, or so I thought. The funny thing is, he would start laughing and I'd ask him if he was having fun, not noticing what he was actually doing. It wasn't until Paul and I went to shut off the TV and GO TO BED that we actually noticed that Will had taken his chalk and colored the TV....and the floor, and the bookshelf. Seriously, we must have been totally out of it. Good thing it wasn't marker eh?

Will's Scrapbook

I decided this week that I needed to catch up on my scrapbooking. I managed to finish Will's first book which is up until Christmas O7. I'm now starting his new book from Jan to now of 2008. Yes, I have alot of scrapbooking to do still to catch up. But I re-organized everything in a tower drawer thingy on wheels and leave it down stairs now. Very exciting. ANYWAYS.....this morning I decided to scrapbook with Will. I figured he would enjoy it, and enjoy it he did. We literally scrapbooked for an hour and a half and he LOVED it! I let him make his own page and use the glue stick and everything :o) What you see is totally his work, mommy didn't help at all! I thought it would be great to start his own scrapbook, and just keep adding all the pages he does as he gets older. But, for now, it will go in it's rightful place earned on the fridge. We had a really wonderful time together.

As you can see from picture number 4, he was very proud of his work and even held it up over his head. Way to go honey, you did so good.

Little Drummer Boy

While I was making supper last night, Will was busy making music. I came around the corner to see what he was doing and he managed to get in his toy box, empty his drum that is usually filled with toys, put the lid back on, grab his drum stick and hang the drum around his neck. He's never done this before and I'm not sure how he'd know to do this, but he did. Mommy tried to sing to help him out, but seriously who can remember all the words to Christmas Carols!!!

Paul and Will in Action

We took these pictures for Paul's Biggest Loser Challenge, but I thought i'd put them on the blog too. It doesn't matter what Paul ends up doing, if he's on the floor, Will feels the need to jump on top of him. So last night when Paul was doing his push ups, Will decided he should help. Now remember Will probably weighs close to 35 pounds now! Yeah Daddy, he's such a good sport. The best part is the look on both Paul and Will's face, they're the same!!! Too funny.

These Boots Were Made For Walkin'

William got new boots. That's it! But apparently, it's exciting enough for him to put them on before bed and dance around. AND....not want to take them off.
