Let it Snow...Let it Snow...Let it Snow

Well we woke up this morning to a snowy blizzard. I think this is the most snow we have had all year. I think the Raiders had a good day yesterday drafting and Hell froze over. Oh well, gotta run my guest are coming today and I need to get us all up and ready.


A milestone....reward ICE CREAM

Alex went poo poo on the potty today for the first time. I caught him trying to go...not that he hides it well. He actually comes out to the living room and does it in front of us. So I tried to hurry and throw him on the potty before he did it and we got there in time! So he finally got some ice cream...we told him a few days ago that he wouldn't get any more ice cream until he did poo poo on the potty. I don't even care what time of day it is.

Daddy left today for a trip to VA for business and he won't be back till Tuesday night. Then he is off to Tulsa OK on Wednesday night. We miss him already.

Today was a sleepy day, we woke up not feeling too good. Slight head colds, but Alex is coughing too. He slept for a few hours this afternoon and so did I. We went outside after dinner and played bubbles and weed whacked the grass around the patio, something Daddy always forgets to do.

Alex is now downstairs doing water color paints...and probably wearing or drinking the rinse water. So I must go and see what he is up to. Have a great week!


A day at the beach

Today we spent the day in the backyard on the patio and sometimes upstairs on the deck. We drank lemonade and soaked up the sun. It was a perfect beach day. So we pretended we were at the beach (minus the sand).

We did a little flower planting, Alex is really good at digging holes. He even has his own Sponge Bob garden gloves. We planted some summer bulbs and some annuals in pots for the deck. We also planted some perennials in pots on the patio.

The week begins tomorrow with gymnastics and "Miss Whitney Teacher" Alex's first crush. Then maybe we will go play with Gracie our neighbor (his new best friend).


April Fools

Well, we had an uneventful April Fools Day. Tony has some fun at work as usual...being the quailty guy he has some pretty sick power over people. Holding up multi million dollar shipments could kinda scare some people...April Fools!

Alex has been just keeping us busier than ever. His sense of humor is a bit on the strange side...wonder where he gets that from? His vocabulary is amazing, more so his personality behind the words. His newest thing is SUPER ALEX...Saves the Day! Too much watching Super Grover on Sesame Street. He loves to draw, paint, color, and use "snips" as he says. I actually let him play with scissors!

We have been able to get outside a few times this month. Last weekend was almost 80 here and we enjoyed every minute of it. Alex helped us seed the lawn and pick rocks out of the ground so daddy wouldn't mow them.

Alex is learning how to hit a baseball and actually doing pretty well. He loves to kick the ball like soccer, he will do that for hours. Daddy has also taught him how to play Grand Theft Auto (which I am not too happy about). He plays his own Playstation downstairs and has his own Dora game that he has figured out pretty well. We go to gymnastics once a week and he is getting so much better at it. He loves his teacher "Whitney Teacher" as he calls her.

Out cats are getting along pretty well. We adopted another cat in December. She was hanging outside our house for a week or so and I let her in the garage to keep warm until I could get Tony to agree to let her in. After a good report at the vet, "Sassy Cat" as Alex named her is now the Queen of the crew. Dogfood has just given up, and Peanut absolutely loves the company. Peanut and Sassy play together constantly...Dogfood will break it up if they get to rough.

Tony is enjoying work still, even though it is very busy. He due for some travel this month.

We are getting out pool finally! It should be done by mid-May. So come on out for a visit!

That is it for now. Gotta try to get Alex to bed, the clock change is going to screw us up royally!
