One Year Already

In two days time, Lucas will be one year old! So this flashback friday is for him. Here's a picture from his delivery around 1:30 am.

He's grown so much in this little time. Right now he's battling swollen gums and fever from teething, but hopefully they'll come through soon. In contrast, I put up a picture I took the other day on the column to the right. I can't seem to get a good picture of this boy. I know he looks kinda goofy, but in all of his pictures he looks really goofy. Well, we've already decided he looks like his grandfather on his daddy's side. ( :


Lovin the hammock

We spent about an hour yesterday afternoon in our hammock(we all fit!) I hope we can find somewhere to hang it when we get back.
And a cute pic from bathtime.

Thanks for the tip Mindy!


Cobin's a funny boy

Yesterday Cobin put Lucas's teddy bear in time out. I asked him what he did to get time out, and he didn't really have a response, so I asked if he was throwing toys. "Yes" was the response, followed by "no throwing, teddy." Here's a picture of poor teddy.

Today James was going to take Cobin with him to Monnies house, but Cobin wanted to take four car toys and had his hands full ready to go. Dadda said (in spanish) it'd be better if you just take two. So he looked down at his hands, dropped one, then another and looked at his dad and said only two(in spanish). Our boy can subtract! and in another language. Yea!

He knows he's not allowed to go outside without shoes, so he just put dad's on since they were right there by the door. Daddy and a friend were outside and he wanted to go too. Clown feet...


Flashback Friday

I love this idea (and am borrowing from Kanani) of flashback fridays. I started the blog after some fun things happened so why not recount them. ( :

One of the reasons I fell in love with James was his creative ways to show he cares about me. My first Valentines day with him...technically before we were dating because I was still 15...was a beautiful sunday morning. My stepmom was totally in on the plot without me knowing. She insisted that I go get her purse from her car trunk because she needed her lipstick for church. I was a let's say hesistant teenager to do my mom's bidding, but she got to be pretty demanding. I was thinking, If you need to paint your face, go get it yourself woman!...but I'd never say that. So, I went to her car and on top of the trunk were a bunch of red and silver hershey kisses with a clue. Thus had begun my scavenger hunt. The clue led me to the post office, which gave me another clue and kisses....then to his house (five minutes from mine with a chocolate rose in addition to kisses taped onto his front door) then to his church. At this point we were pretty late for my baptist church meeting. I guess it was ok with mom, but at that clue we had to stop and go to church. That last clue (which we followed after church) led to my house...and there on the kitchen table waiting for me were two dozen beautiful pink tipped yellow rozes and a valentine. ( : I had a few bags worth of hershey kisses and one of the best valentines day ever!

My dad's comment on the whole deal: "Boy, you're in trouble. I only got her mom one dozen. Doesn't look good for me for you to show me up like this." HAHAHA



Recently our good friend Noah came to visit, so he and James took a drive to do the zipline canopy tour.
We also went to Fuentes Georginas (hot springs) again. It is one of my favorite places in the world. so far..
This last picture was taken in the restaraunt at Fuentes Georginas. We were all bundled up because the air is pretty cool, so once you get out of the hot water, it's pretty cold.
