So sorry

So sorry I haven't blogged in over a week. I spent last week in San Antonio taking a payroll class and getting my final payroll certification. I am now officially a CPP. YAY. I should not have to travel for work again anytime soon. I was sick before i left to go to SAT and I was able to keep it at a minimum while I was there. However, it hit me hard once I got home. Lost my voice on Saturday and it is not completely back. So, I have 7 pics to make up for. Thanks to Gran Pat for posting the Blink sneak peak.

Monday night playing with buttons in Lowes. He was in heaven.

Friday, playing with da in the front yard and eating a frozen pop.

Thursday night, he fell asleep sitting up by the front door. Must have been tired.

Gran Pat and Paw Paw Bill stopped for a visit while I was away. I think M was happy.

Then Gran found him playing with the dvd player.

The view from my room in SAT, overlooking the River walk area.

Here is M last Sunday. In the car with his new Toy Story shades on.

A day ahead

I have some time to kill before leaving for the airport. Here is a pic for Monday.

One of my favs from our trip to Galinburg.

Another break

So it seems I am going to have to take another break from blogging...well at least blogging with pics. I will be in San Antonio this week for payroll training again. I won't have the laptop with me. I will try to do what I can. Maybe Gran Pat can take over for a few days, hint hint hint.

As for today's picture, I downloaded the picturs off of Maxx's V-tech camera the other day. There was 240 pictures but most of them were of the floor or just black. They did have some funny ones that I will share.

Can you see M's feet in the one? I thinkhe was sitting on the sofa.

Nice shot of the wii remotes and one of the trains.

I think I took this one in Wmt one morning.

And, i just loved this one. I think M's Nanny must have done this special one.


Big Boy Bed

Crib no more. We converted M's bed into a toddler bed last week. So far so good. It is on our room right now since M's room is no longer M's room. We had to go buy a rail for it since 1) the toddler conversion kit didn't come with one and 2) he fell out the first night. (But he was fine, don't worry.)

Parading around the neighborhood

M and I took a walk today in his wagon. Luckily, the wagon had some beads left in it from our one and only Mardi Gras parade this year. At one point I turned around and M had a neck full of beads. The neighbors probably think we are one crazy family.

Passing time...

Waiting for the dr.

I took M to the dr today since he started with a runny nose and funky cough yesterday. I wanted to be proactive since I will be out of town next week. Good thing we went b/c he has a slight ear infection starting. At least now we can start on meds early and hopefully stop this infection before it gets too bad.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I was lucky to have today off of work! So Uncle Will and I loaded up a toddler (Maxx), an elderly women (Maw-Maw El), and a cripple (Gran Pat) and went to the Square to celebrate St. Pat's with friends and family. We had a really great time and the weather was gorgeous. Maxx and I are both tired. I think we will sleep well tonight. :)

Another miss...

So i know i missed yesterdays post. But here is why....

You really didn't expect me to do a blog post after a day of consuming 120 jello shots.

Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year. I LOVE the Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day parade. I love that it is such a wonderful family tradition.

We had one day of snow while in TN. It was raining and snowing so it didn't stick to the ground. It was really cool and so different from any "snow" we see in SE LA.


We are back!

Sorry for our brief hiatus but we traded the craziness of Mardi Gras for the peaceful mountains of Gatlinburg this year. I only brought the ipad so I could not upload photos. I am going to make up for it by posting a pic from each day of our trip.

Friday (03/04/11)

M & S running across a wooden bridge over a rolling stream.

Saturday (03/05/11)

M contemplating his next move on the putt-putt course while eating a rice krispie treat.

Sunday (03/06/11)

Us waiting to go into a place called Wonder Works

Monday (03/07/11)

M and his little friend checking out the river that ran along side of the restaurant.

Tuesday (03/08/11) Happy Mardi Gras

A 10 hour car ride for a 2 year old is not that fun. But M was VERY good on the trip.
