Broke it in with a batch of brown rice. Pretty cool!

White elephant

We are ready for the annual family gift exchange.

Old gym

Miracle happened this week. I went to the gym for the first time in over a year. And this is what i found. I cried. The memories! All gone! It was like an old friend had died and i missed the funeral. Sadly, i had been the first to leave so i shouldn't have been so heart broken. I had neglected the relationship. I couldn't expect it to wait around forever for me. The next morning i found myself awake at 4:45. So i got up. I got dressed. And i went to brickyard. I saw a handful of the old gang. Not like they know or care about me, but their faces were warm and made me feel at home. They are the ones who never missed. I doubt i will ever see some of my favorites, though, like the old man with the cane and the old woman who looked like mrs. claus. Guess i can't have everything the same. I am secretly happy that they have massage tables, though. Water pressure massage. Loved it. And my 60 bucks a year qualifies me to use them for free. I am VIP, unlike the 10 a month people. Here is hoping i make it back again before another year goes by.

Ready for bed

They are in each other's pajamas. I blame Bret, and he blames me. She used to wear the blue ones when  Ward was smaller and she was low on ones that fit. Now they fit him and she has more options. Bret is used to seeing them on her, though, so when he went to get her ready for bed he just grabbed them off the desk, making it so my only option for Ward were her owl pajamas.


It looks like he is going down, but that is just the wind. He climbed up the bottom end and played while the wind blew his downy hair.


This week she scooted around the kitchen with bowls as shoes. Lately, when i ask her to smile for a picture, she closes her eyes.

Big sister

As my brothers can attest, there is nothing like having a big sister to play with your hair. Lucky boy.

She was eating a pineapple smoothie and rejected the last few bits. Then she inhaled a bowl full of ocra. Last week she opted for ocra instead of a banana.

She had her first exam. She screamed as needed. He gave her a toy as a prize. I gave her a bottle. She enjoyed exploring the waiting room best. Now to get her to smile for the camera!
