basket pulling

Normally, J loves for me to pull him around the halls in the basket while the wash is washing. Today I guess I was too slow, because he got out and insisted on pulling it himself.

Dr. Seuss backpack

J got a backpack of his very own for Christmas, and has recently realized he can take it with him anywhere... with pretty much anything that can fit inside it!

J found my stocking and wanted to wear it. Of course as soon as the camera was pulled out did he try to take it off, and I had to hold it on for a picture :)

Own Personal Toolbox

J has LOVED whenever we dig out our tool box for anything, and has been begging for "J screwdriver? J hammer? J toolsbox?" And so he was so excited to open up this present of tools.

Wandering the living room of Grandma Speight's house during the Christmas program got a bit long for J, so he started to take pictures. He happened to fall and take this selfie at the same time. :) It turned out pretty good, considering he was falling.

Date Night

A good friend sent us a visa gift card in the mail for Christmas. We had a conversation that went something like this
Drew: So, should we buy test strips for it? Maybe pay rent?
Me: Well, I guess we could be responsible with it. Or I was thinking we could be not so responsible with it and use it to go see the new Star Wars.
Drew: I like your idea better. Lets do that.

So we had a much needed date night. and it was great.

Burlap for Amy Sue

Move out is happening again, and we discovered some burlap ribbon in the free pile that happens every semester that we thought Amy Sue would like. So we took a picture to find out if she wanted us to bring it down to Salt Lake with us.

At a dinner party

We had a dinner party with some friends from the ward. Predictably, J didn't eat (I mean, who wants to eat dinner when there's a cat around and star wars movies?), and discovered that they had the Star Wars movies. So he asked to watch while we finished eating and played a game or two.

Plasma center schedule

With the end of the semester fast approaching, the plasma center is having different hours until the start of next semester. I took a picture to remember the schedule. It's apparently the only picture that got taken today.

Coolant label

We've been having yet more car troubles. This time with the coolant system (probably) leaking. I took a picture of the coolant in the car to hopefully get as much information as I can for when I go get coolant tomorrow.

Letters in the bath

J tried out his letters in the bath today. We discovered that not only do they stick to the wall which we already knew about, but they also stick to him :) He had a lot of fun sticking and unsticking them, and I enjoyed putting them on his back.

Christmas Decorations 3

Last Christmas decorations picture. We had two more pine cones that didn't fit anywhere else, so we hung them on the wall behind the TV. It made it feel just a bit more festive.

Old bike

Because we got J's new bike here, we decided to give his old bike away to someone who needed it. We took a picture to be able to show it to people.

Christmas decorations

So for pretty much the first time ever since we've been married, We actually put up some Christmas decorations. I'll show one a day for the next few days. Just to have something to take a picture of :)

My parents sent us a kid friendly natvity, made out of blocks. I love it, and J seems to enjoy looking at them too.

at the library

The library had this sweet display up. The car on it actually goes around the track, which was cool. J LOVED looking at it, and was really sad when I said we had to go home.

New bike

Drew's parents had a bike for J. It fits him better than the bike we have now, so we brought it home. J enjoyed riding it around our halls today.
