Well Happy New Year! I have decided today to end the recent break I've taken from blogging and jump back on the bandwagon.
Parker - fully potty trained and hardcore into "the 3s". He loves playing Candyland, going to the YMCA and has a new found love for monster trucks. And still the most handsome little thing I've ever laid eyes on.
Joey - 3 down, 1 to go. I'm confidently saying that he will get to add those three precious letters to the end of his title soon - CPA! Plus its almost his birthday.
Me - 2nd to last semester before a B.A., still a SAHM and proud of it, looking forward to a trip up north (by myself) at the end of the month
So anyways, welcome back. Thanks for sticking around!

Not only are Jenn's designs delightful, but she has begun all this work in hopes of adding a new member to her family through adoption. We all know that adoption is a long, hard and costly process, so please visit Jenn. Look around, buy something, make a donation, or at least say hello.
A little message from Jenn:
"I have been "dabbling" in things like these photo cards and such for a couple years now....ever since I started being a stay home mom. Recently, growing our family by adoption has been weighing heavily on my mind and heart. With God's guidance, we have decided to adopt from Africa. We are just in the very most beginning stages of our journey. A journey which we know will be long, full of joy, full of heartache, and full of trying to raise the funds. I started this website in hopes of helping to have money to add to our adoption fund."
I'm putting this at the bottom of the blog in case anyone needs a quick reference.

Well, I broke this rule and Parker decided to turn our big jug of milk into his favorite drink, "pink milk". The little monster was able to get the milk out of the fridge, get it up on the counter, and add his strawberry syrup. Thankfully I had caught him before he'd started to pour himself a cup. Pink milk is hard to get out of carpet - we've learned that the hard way too.
