merry christmas

well today was a great day. liam did not wait to get up and open his presents.
just like me needing my coffee, he needs his milk first. it's ok buddy, i completely understand!

it's like it snowed outside or something with this look on his face.

you gotta love that smile!

daddy wanted to get him his own small nerf gun.

"oh the big one."

every little boy needs some army trucks, right?

i can play music!

we are going to regret buying him this i think.

yeah, he knows how to load the gun....

it's toy story right here in the living room.

love this shot!

merry christmas. time to play with our toys!

happy 2nd birthday, dude!!!

my baby is 2 today. two years ago he came into our world and it has been one heck of a ride! i have learned so much as a mother and i am still learning. he is just a blessing. this year our world was rocked by his appendix rupturing. God watched over him and he is healthy today. though as i type this he is fighting a fever, the worst is behind us. i know that God has his hand on him and always will. after all he is our miracle and God won't let things happen to miracles, right!?

things the dude loves:
dancing. i love it when certain commericals come on and he gets right up from what he is doing and dances. i have to get this on a video!

donuts. the hostess kind. he has to have two small donuts for each hand. perferably chocolate. powdered ones are the thing of the past.

cars and balls. give him either one and he is content! he has loves throwing balls since he was 10+ months. maybe a future baseball player???? i hope because by the time he graduates i will be close to retiring. omg....did i just say that. off to cry now...feel so old!!!!! lol

bread. any kind will do.

sponge bob, diego. he loves cartoons. sponge bob was the theme for his birthday.

chilling with daddy. he is such a daddy's boy. he loves sitting on daddy's lap and watching tv.

playing catch with momma. yay...something with momma! it is sometimes very rare. lol

the mall. he loves to throw pennies in the fountain. he throws a fit when we pass it and we can't stop.

reading. he loves to look at books and have us read to him.

drawing and coloring. he has an artistic side. he loves to draw and write.

he has a lot of words he says. he is starting to repeat more and more. though right now everything is no. that is getting better though.

i look forward to what this year will bring. i know it will be more happiness, learning, and love. i cherish each and every moment!!! love you little man!

2nd birthday

i think i have said this a hundred times in the last week, "i can't believe the dude will be 2." time sure has flown by.

the day he was born. the happiest day of my life. one day that i never thought i would experience but with god's blessing our miracle was here.

here he is last year at his first birthday party with grandma tilley.

and yesterday, the 18th, his 2nd birthday party! he will officially be 2 on the 21st. i'm sure there will be a post on that day all about him! :)

sigh....does he have to grow up so fast? love you, buddy!

this week in pictures!

what a busy week it has been!

we started off the week with liam getting his first hair cut. lots of photos on the last post but here are a couple more.

we stopped at the bank and guess who we saw....gus gorilla! liam gave him a hug and wished him luck for this week's championship game. did it work? :)

we haven't ate out much lately. but we did stop at mcdonald's for a cheap, fast meal. while at mcdonalds liam drank too fast and too much and lost all he ate that day. not fun!

since we got the oven fixed i have been dying to cook! so i made some pumpkin whoopie pies!! yum!

what a surprise to see this when i went to check my "myguide." by the way, they don't show people's full last names at work. it's a safety issue.

our university was on their way to florence, al for the ncaa dII championship, it was yesterday the 17th. friday this insert was in the paper. "bama bound!!!"

and did that hug to gus gorilla work???

yes it did! the gorilla's won 35-21. i listened at work. people thought i was nuts but a true fan doesn't care what others think. i was into the game...i didn't care. it was an amazing game!

since psu's graduation was the same day as the championship game, we had several cakes made up into the bakery. we took a few and wrote on them after the game. here is a cake i wrote on.

saturday night eric's family came into town so we could celebrate christmas and the next day liam's birthday. two of the gifts i got.....

sorry it is side ways. :)

tomorrow pictures of the dude's birthday. all of these were taken on my phone, i haven't uploaded the photos from today yet. have a great week and take lots of pictures!
