GR Children's Museum

Penguin Play is at the GR Chrildren's Museum right now, and while we didn't get much time playing with the penguin set up, we had fun everywhere else. Simon got to crawl through a mirror tunnel, play with balls, and try out musical instuments.

Our Family Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas Season : )

Simon has a rough life : )

Simon woke up this morning and promptly fell asleep by me in bed. Then he got to help mommy and grandma "sew". And he got to cuddle up in the down comforter and watch a little morning cartoons : ) Rough, isn't it?

Well, our family overall hardly ever gets sick but what a week we have had. Simon ended up in Prime Care on Tuesday afternoon with a temperature of 104.4f and a double ear infection. On Wednesday I had a fever, sore throat, an ear ache, and pain. And then James acquired the lovely sore throat this weekend. WHAT FUN, WHAT FUN! Please pray that we all feel better this week : )

Simon's 1 year Photos

Simon is ONE today!

Our little baby turns 1 year old today. Eveyone tells you this, but the time really does fly. I can't believe how much he has changed and learned over the past year. We love him so much and have so much fun as a family! ---------Tonight we took Simon out to eat at Panera Bread, then he got to ride the carousel and also hang out in the playland. We gave him a tricycle for his first birthday present.

Happy Harvest Day

Simon had fun being a cute little lion. We went to visit daddy at his elementary school and watched a costume parade. Then we went to Grandpa and Grandma O's house for dinner.
