Joshua turned 2 this past Friday...can you believe it? We had a small get-together with some friends and family, with a few presents for Joshua and, of course, birthday cake. Enjoy the pictures!And here's a short video of the devouring of the birthday cake...much cleaner than last year!
I'm so grateful to have this little guy in my life. Thanks for coming to our family, Joshua Logan! WE LOVE YOU!!!
Cody is almost done with his finals! It's been a long semester, and I'm sure he's so happy to be just about finished. The only thing that's left is a little memorization for his Saturday math class, and then he's done for the next two weeks! I'm sure he can't wait to have no school for a little bit...he's been going almost non-stop for a year now. Keep it up, my love! =D
Would you believe we found this 6.5' artificial tree, pre-lit and everything, for only $35? That's like the cost of a real tree! So yay, we are now officially decorated for Christmas! I apologize for the poor quality of the picture...this one was taken with my cell phone. We got some better pictures with our digital camera, but I can't find the cord to upload the pictures to the computer. I guess this one will have to do for now.
Oh, and it snowed last night and a little bit more today, so it really feels like Christmas now! Funny how this native southern California girl, who never had a white Christmas until a couple of years ago, is so excited for snow, huh? I'll like it until January, probably. Then the novelty wears off.
Side note: the gift card from "The Human Fund" from my last post? There was no balance on it. We found out while trying to use it to buy this tree. Luckily we had funds in our bank account, but still. Sigh. I'm hoping it was just a mistake and not a cruel joke...
"Playing footsies with mommy, oh yeah!" (ask us if you want the context here)
"Here, Mommy, let me help you get up, because you don't know how to get up with a baby in your tummy."
Joshua: "Mommy, I love you." Mommy: "I love you, too, son." Joshua: "ANGRY BIRDS!!!!"
(After falling off a swing at the park, he starts whimpering) Mommy: "Come here, Joshua, and tell me the story." Joshua: *climbs up on my lap, then sniffles* "Um, once upon a time, I was on the swing..."
"I gotta tell ya somethin'."
"I'm doing the I love you sign! I'm still doing it! I'm still doing it!" (which he shouts as we exit his room at bedtime)
Mommy: "Is London (girl at daycare) your girlfriend?" Joshua: "Yes, and Nicky (boy at daycare) is my boyfriend."
Mommy: "Do you know who is coming over tomorrow?" Joshua: "Yes, I do!" Mommy: "Who?" Joshua: "What?" Mommy: "You just said you know who is coming over. Who is it?" Joshua: "I don't know."
Mommy: "It's a party!" (because my sister and brother-in-law were in the car with us when I picked Joshua up from daycare) Joshua: (looking out the window) "Aww, I missed it!"
"Mommy, the sun is coming up to say hello to me!"
Grandma says: "I love you, Joshua." Joshua responds: "No, you don't! Mommy and Daddy love me!"
"Mommy, can my pet watch TV?" (referring to a large smiley-faced metallic balloon)
Grandma says: "Talk about your mixed metaphors!" Joshua says: "Not my mixed bananaphores!"
