Crawling Baby

It's taken 9 months but Adam has figured out how to crawl. He's been scooching around the room on his butt for months now but now he is actually up on all 4 fours. Oh we go again. LOL

Discerning Direction

Alex had the opportunity to attend Discerning Direction at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. 4 students from SSPP along with one of their religion teachers made the trek to Massachusetts for the 2 day conference. Alex really enjoyed himself and I'm thankful for the opportunity for him to have him attend. Next up on his traveling agenda is a missions club trip to Gallup, NM in June.

Surprise Award

Tonight was the Spring Sports Banquet. Alex likes to attend to show his support for all the sports teams at school. This year was a little tougher for him sportswise because we made him miss the last few games due to not turning in class assignments on time. It was a nice evening with good food. All the spring teams were recognized. It's wonderful to see how many students participate for such a small school. When the baseball team was announced, Alex was totally surprised when his coach awarded him the Most Improved Player award. He went from only playing a handful of innings last year to being their starting 3rd baseman.

A Day at the Park

Alex had to be in Easton early this morning to help work a yard sale for his missions club. I decided to the little ones to Tuckahoe State Park for the couple of hours that he was working instead of going home. Here's some pics of our time there...

The Book Challenge for 2009

From Kristin's blog:

Jen J for *Navigating the Waters of Infertility and Beyond posted about setting a concrete goal to read a specific number of books this year. It can be any type of book. She said, "I'm going to try to mix mine up between easy reads and thought-provoking books. Also a good mix of non-fiction and fiction as well. It will be interesting to see if I can do it." The whole goal is to make sure you keep reading. And, rereading books is definitely allowed.

I read a number of books throughout the year and was already planning how many I read this year, so I'll join in. I think I will also set my goal at 70. We'll see how close I get. Who wants to join me? You can set the challenge at whatever total you want.

Kristin is offering a contest for anyone that wants to join. Please go here to join in. =)

Drs Appt

Adam has his 4 month check up today and is doing great. He weighs 16 lbs 3.5 oz and is 24.75 inches long. Nothing really exciting about the appt other than the dr is now saying that he will most likely has the lump on his head forever which totally irritates me. First it was a few days, then a couple weeks, then a few months, then it'll be gone by the time he's a year and now it's that he will have it forever. Grr! And I really still do not understand why he got the cephalohematoma in the first place. We've had other kids that the vaccum was used on and they never ended up with one, so what was done differently with him?? Poor little guy is going to have a lumpy head for life all because of me. :(

I should have known that it wasn't going to be a good day when I tripped going my front stairs on the way to work. I then proceeded to trip walking down the hallway once I got to work. I was careful when I walked down the stairs mid morning and made it down without incident. I then took another walk down the stairs mid afternoon without mishap. But wouldn't you know it, when I was leaving for the day, on the very last set of stairs before reading the garage, I would trip. Thankfully I was being cautious and had my hand on the railing otherwise I would have ended up on the landing in a very ungraceful way. As it was, I ended up kind of upside down and in the process scrapping my shins up pretty good and twisting my back and neck something awful. Needless to say it was a painful ride home.

I guess when you are tired you will sleep anywhere. LOL This is a picture of Kearsyn sleeping on the floor in front of the sink in the kitchen.

Friendship Bread

One of the presents we received from my mom this year was some Friendship Bread batter although we have since renamed it Enemy Bread. LOL We made up our first batch a couple of days ago and I couldn't believe how many different ingredients it takes plus just the pita factor of mixing it altogether. We figured you can give it to your enemies and while they are engrossed in finding and mixing all the ingredients, you can attack them and they would never know what hit them. The bread is delicious once you persevere, though. I made up another batch today and this is the result (I forgot to take a picture of the first batch we did). It's so dark because the recipe we have calls to add a box of pudding in it so we decided to try chocolate pudding. We made our first batch with vanilla pudding and I think I like that one the best so far. I think next time we'll try lemon pudding although Kenzie is trying really hard to talk me into making one with cookies n cream pudding. Somehow, I just can't get into that one.

Now we know

We always speculate that washing machines eat socks...last night we actually were able to get proof of it. That's a picture of our washing machine filter with 3 socks stuck in it. One really has to wonder how they got there. Hubby has the full story on his blog (and I stole the pic from him) ;)
