The Weekend Is Here

I'm so glad that the weekend is finally here. Tonight I watched Ethan while Beth was working. He was being silly and we played a lot. Then all of a sudden he got tired and was ready for bed.

My plan for tomorrow is to start cutting out the animals for Ethan's alphabet book. I'll have to start it when Ethan takes his nap, and once he wakes up, I'll have to wait until Beth is home from work to start cutting again. I'm excited to start working on his book. I'm going to laminate the animals and attach them with velcro on the outside of each page. That way he can take the animals off and put them back on.

This Seems Like the Longest Short Work Week!

I know this is a short work week, but it sure does seem like a long one! I wish the weekends would seem as long.

At least when I get home from work, Ethan comes running to me and gives me a kiss. It's so cute! He sure is developing quite a personality. He likes to play and giggle a lot. At the store he'll sit in the cart and just chatter away. Then when I answer him by saying "Is that right?", he'll start shaking his head no. Sometimes he shakes his head so fast that he gets dizzy.

Hopefully tomorrow when I get home from work I can start cutting out the animals on my Cricut for Ethan's alphabet book. I can't wait to work on it and see Ethan's face when I get it done. He loves books.

Summer Is Right Around the Corner

Today was so humid, that you couldn't help but know that summer is right around the corner. We had on and off thunderstorms today. I just hope that we don't have too hot of a summer.

On May 17th, Beth, Andy, Ethan and I went to Pearson Park. Here are some pictures:

Here is Ethan swinging

Here are Andy and Beth with Ethan on the slide. You can tell by Andy and Beth's face that they are enjoying the time with Ethan. It's nice to see Brother and Sister enjoying time together.
I love the next two pictures of Beth and Ethan. They didn't know I was snapping pictures, but you sure can tell the special bond that Mother and Son have in these photos.

Ethan sure was tired after we got home from the park. He went to bed early and slept pretty well.
In the following picture, Ethan is 19 months old! He's such a ham!

We had a nice Memorial Day. Our menu was hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, corn on the cob, potato salad and chips. We went the easy route and clean up was a breeze since we used paper plates and plastic silverware. Here is a picture of Buster enjoying the sun.

I've Got To Start Blogging More!

I made myself a goal to update my blog more often. I started out fine, but have been really lax about it lately. I'm seriously going to try to get better about it.

This weekend I plan to upload pics from my camera to the computer. When I do that, I'll post a couple of the pics.

Well, I'll be leaving work shortly to start the Memorial Day weekend! I can't wait to have an extra day off!

First Day of May

Really? May already? The first half of the year is almost over. I'm not sad though, because now we are getting into warmer weather. Now if only we could get it to stop raining so much.

This is also Larry's birthday. We wish he was here to celebrate with us, but we'll have to make up for it when he's home in July.

Sunday is Mom's 85th birthday. We will be celebrating on Saturday though. Hopefully I'll be able to get a five generations picture with her. I'm going to bake and decorate a cake and we'll surprise her.
