The Worst Day

Yesterday was one of the worst days I have had in a very long time. To start it was snowing and the wind was bowing, not so bad if you can stay inside, however knowing that I had to work today, or at least was supposed to work, Jay and I took turns shoveling the drive way and when we had it clear I was content to start some long overdue laundry. too bad I had too many towels and burnt up the motor in the washing machine, So we were going to go to Jay parents to do some laundry, however the lovely wing decided to cover our freshly shoveled driveway with like 18inches of snow. Needless to stay we got stuck trying to leave and had to shovel our way out. Well after we finally got out and too his parents all was well, except oh wait, his grandparents Christmas party was last night, all well and good but scheduled at 7pm. Which is Paxtons birthday, so by 745 Paxton was soo tired that I had to go upstairs and put him to sleep. Of course the only way to do that when we are not at home is to sing to him and rock him. Great, done. But with nowhere to put him down I got to hold him and anytime I tried getting close to the party he would start waking up due to the noise, so I was stuck in the office all night. Yeah finally time to go home. Not so fast, the Idaho wind that I love soooooo much thought it necessary to dump all the snow from our ward and the one next door onto out driveway. Literally 3 feet of snow at the end of the driveway at 10pm, while in the meantime you could see the dirt in the yard. I felt like screaming. The weather forecast called for wind all night and not really being excited about spending an hour to yet again dig my way out I call into to work for today. Now all I have to do is figure a way to get the car back into the garage.

Cookie Monster

While in California with my family for Thanksgiving we made some Christmas cookies, one of those being Chocolate Crinkles. Well in the week that followed the cookies were in the computer room where Jay had been munching on them. Apparently Paxton has longer reach than we realized. He managed to grab them off of the desk, get the lid of the Tupperware and he very much enjoyed eating them.

New Trick

Sunday while I was at the sink doing the dishes Paxton was crawling around in the dinning room. He likes to use the railing to pull himself up so he can be standing. Well next thing I know he found the high chair a decided that it would make a good walker. He proceeded to push it across the room, and everytime I would put it back where it belongs away he would go. I have a funny feeling crawling wont be his only method of getting around for much longer

Still trying

Well I told you it was an attempt, I will have to keep working on it.

We have been spending some time recently working on the deck and yard. Trying to get it finished before winter hits. Paxton sure enjoys it, he loves to be outside. He had the time of his life playing in the deck while Jay was working on the stairs, and earlier this week he spent time in the skidster with Jay while we level the dirt in the yard. Boy did he think that was fun. I think we are just about done with all we can do outside. Now it is time to move on to the basement. The sheat rock is done and Jay has been working on the trim while he is not watching Paxton.

Work is still going well for me. No really changes in that department. Paxton is crawling around and getting into everything. His favorite toy is the baby monitor, he loves to stand up to our night stand and pull it off. One day soon he will be walking. That will make him that much hard to keep track of.

Jay appearntly pull a muscle or something in his back this week, but he woke up yesterday and could hardly move. It's a good thing his sister was able to come help out with Paxton till I got home from work. hopefull he will feel better soon.

For now that is all, best of wishes to all of you!

Hey everyone,

So this is my attempt at blogging. I guess we will see how it goes.

Life has been very busy around here recently. Paxton has discovered the joy of being mobile and is into everything he can reach. It is a lot of fun to watch him explore. He is learning so much so fast.

As for Jay, when he is not being Mr. Mom he is working on getting the basement finished. Right now he is working on the trim, just a couple more rooms to go before we can start the prep work(filling in holes and caulking). Then comes the paint.

I am keeping busy between Paxton and work. We have been having lots of babies recently and been very busy, but I am still really enjoying it.

Well I guess that is it for now. Just trying to get it up and going.
