It was a fairly busy day today, and I never remembered to take any pictures, so you get this uninspiring picture of laundry hanging to dry instead.

We went and wandered around the I-Center today to get out of the house. We kept passing this carving, and I think I like it.

We went to a thrift store and Winco, and found these great books there. J LOVES the puzzle book and keeps asking to read it (even if he hasn't quite got the puzzle part down yet)

having fun

J was jumping in bed, and throwing a stuffed lamb back and forth with Drew. He was having a blast.

J discovered that he can use blocks to climb up into his chair. he decided to climb up there with a can of raisins to try and convince me he really wanted some.

Gas prices

We were taking a walk tonight (since yay, the car is STILL in the shop) and noticed the gas price has been getting even lower! we're pretty excited, and hope it stays there for quite a while.

Automatic doors

we went and wandered around on campus today, and J figured out how to work the automatic doors, and enjoyed it immensley.

These were all technically done yesterday, but I decided to wait a day for a picture. J seems very excited about these ones.

Caterpillar page

I've finally taken up doing quiet book pages again, in the hopes that I'll be able to eventually put them together for J to look at/play with during church. He seemed quite excited when I got this one done this afternoon :)

platypuses on the ark

we were reading through a noah's ark book today, and I happened to noticed that there was a pair of platypuses that were coming off the ark. I was rather amused.

tackling mommy

One of J's favorite things to do recently is to tackle me, especially when I'm sitting on the floor or holding a camera (and especially especially when it's both).

J actually eventually brought all of these items home, but he was most enthralled by the ukulele. yay for musical interest!

We found some food we won't be using, so I put it up on a local garage sale site for free. This is apparently the only picture that was taken today.

J found some seaweed and wanted to try it. so, we gave him a piece. after he tried it and decided that he didn't like it, he proceeded to feed it to me. after that, he started to go through the whole box and look for something else. he was rather disappointed when he didn't find anything else but seaweed.

Whenever J sees this plant, he starts to ask if it is hair. I'm having a hard time convincing him that it is a plant, and not hair.

J has been enjoying looking at pictures in the Ensign. So, I decided to go dig this out and look at it with him. He loved seeing all the pictures.

I realized that I never got a picture of the finished product of our snowman. So here he is.

Today was my first day donating plasma. It wasn't as horrible as I expected it to be. Hopefully this will allow us some funds to start saving again,

water in all varieties

J has been being weird about drinking water, and has been wanting to try out different cups, or just won't drink anything. So, we have one of every cup filled with water scattered around the house in an attempt to encourage more drinking.

car seat inside

since our car has officially died, we had to get a ride to church and brought the car seat inside. J was having fun taking pictures, and this was the only one that got taken today that turned out.
