In honor of. . .

John's BIRTHDAY. Yes, technically 31, but physical hardship to his body makes him 65. He is, and has always been, very abusive to it. The funny thing is, he is in the young men's program. He will come home after playing basketball with them and cry about how much it hurt and how good he used to be at sports. He has a a few good excuses, namely surviving radiation treatment and a really messed up back. I just think it's funny.

The reason I am posting is because I wanted to share this oh so cut daddy-daughter moment they had on Monday night. Addison has not been taking very good naps this past week. She is sometimes woken up by the smallest peep out of another child. When she wakes up, she dose not go back to sleep. This equals an even longer day for mom because the wining begins about the same time as all the kids go home. Monday, while I finished dinner, John came to the rescue and danced/sang with her until she was practically asleep. It was just too cute. She loves when he sings to her.

Tree Removal

In order for me to meet standards for my day care licence we have to build a fence. To do that, my semi-perfectionist husband wanted to remove the trees in the front yard. This is great, these are the same trees that nearly crushed our house last year during the ice storm. They are worthless for shade, make it so no grass can grow near them, and pollute the yard with a billion leaves in the fall. I am not sad to see them go, it was just one more thing to do. But He-man himself and a couple of friends (one who is apparently part monkey) got the job done today. It was quite entertaining to watch. Thankfully no one and nothing got hurt.

She was just as interested as I was.

For Grandma T

Thinking of you.

Addison Pictures

This has been Addison's favorite toy for the past few days. If I new it was that easy, I would have spent a lot less on Christmas!

Oreo Adventures

Addison had her first Oreo the other day. I have officially given up trying to keep her away from sweets. Between me, John and Grandpa T, she has no chance. Here is my little sweet tooth in action.
