My sister has often posted on Facebook pictures of her kids getting into the cereal. I thought I would share the fun :)

All Hail the Giraffe ball popper

J often requires some... encouragement... when it comes to actually playing with his toys, and not all the fun things that mom and dad use that are in his reach because there is nowhere else for them to go. so I did this just for fun. It had the desired effect. :)

Swing loving boy

Whenever we go to the park, J always looks quite excitedly as we go by the swings. I will oblige and let him swing for a while.

Big Judd's Birthday Dinner

We went to Big Judd's for Drew's birthday. They have a one pound burger challenge. Because he hadn't gotten a chance to eat much during the day between doing constant interviews at work and having class mixed in too. He decided to go for the challenge, not really expecting to finish it all, but he did!

Campus Flowers

We were walking home from campus this evening, and saw that grounds crew has finally started planting some flowers. I'm quite excited.

We uncovered our first window for the season. I'm hoping it wasn't a mistake.

Easter bowtie

Mom made a bowtie for J to wear just for Easter. He tried it on with his jammies before actually wearing it for the day. It made for some cute picture opportunities.

Hanging out at Dad's work

what this picture doesn't show is just how many fun cords and buttons there are to get into that I had to keep chasing him away from.

J's Menagerie

I forgot to take all the toys out of J's bath last night. I walked into the bathroom later the next day, after Drew had taken a shower, and found this.

Library lights

One day, when I have my own house, I want high ceilings and dangly lights.... as well as the windows.

counting beads

I'm going to use these in one of the quiet book pages. in a configuration much like this, actually. I took this picture to help me remember the order, and didn't get any other pictures taken.
