Long time, no see :)

Yes, I'm still here! It's getting harder and harder to get to this dang blog lately. Mostly because I have no time but also, my computer is working soooooo slowly that it takes forever to do anything! But here I am, trying to do a post. We will see how long my computer lasts :)

Where did we leave off? Fall break, jeez. It seems like forever ago. So much has happened and I have no idea how to catch up on all of it.

We moved! I wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea of moving, it's a lot of work and I really loved my house. But in the long run, it will be for the best. We are now out in Corona, which is nice and quiet but a LONG drive from anywhere. The house is bigger and more open with a nice backyard for Henry and no pool to worry about. I am finally starting to feel like this is "home" now.

Here is my favorite part about the new house, the view from the backyard.

Henry helped mama at school. Look at that face :)

Henry celebrated his second Halloween. Last year, he dressed as Tigger. This year, he dressed up as his favorite character, Mickey!

My little Mickey :)

James decided to dress as Mickey too! They were so cute together :)

We took Henry to the zoo. He LOVED it! We got an annual pass so we are there two or three times a month.

Mama and Henry by his favorite animals, the elephants.

Henry is learning to feed himself. It gets pretty messy and most of the food ends up ON him instead of in his mouth but at least it's cute :)

Enjoying the ketchup, I mean fries at Culver's.

Yummy beans!
James and I needed a few things for the new house so we went searching. Henry's little friend Ariston came along for the adventure.

I thought it was so cute that they held hands the whole time :)

Chilling in a chair they climbed up into.

Auntie Em gets a kiss from Henry :)
I totally thought I had Thanksgiving and Christmas preparation pictures on my computer but alas, I do not and James has the camera. I'll have to catch up on Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff next time... Hopefully soon :)

So I shall leave you with a video I took today of Henry helping me make Christmas cookies!

Fall Break!

Time to play catch-up again! It's a good thing we have these breaks or I might never blog ;) Henry has been a busy boy as usual. He seems to have REALLY found his voice lately. Before, he would say single sounds and maybe a couple words like mama and dada. Well now, he has turned into a little parrot! I found this out the other day when I was explaining to Henry what we would be doing that day. I said, ok Henry first we are going to Target. Then he says just as clear as day... Target! Then I told him later that we were going home and he again, clear as day, said home! It is seriously adorable! I tried to get it on the flip but he never cooperates. So here are some pictures of what bubba has been up to lately.

Henry LOVES to be outside. The other day we were coming home from... somewhere and Henry decided he just wanted to stay out and play. Who am I to say no? It was so nice out!
Can you tell where we were coming back from? ;)


Henry is ready for football season! Here he is sporting his team colors, for both the Cowboys and Packers.
Howdy partner!

Yee-haw! Check out that expert hat toss!

Henry just loves Daisy! He is kissing her through the glass.


We went down to Sierra Vista to celebrate my dad's birthday and his 30th anniversary in the ministry.

My mom and dad, or nana and papa as Henry calls them.

Henry enjoyed playing in nana and papa's nice big backyard with the fun play set :)

When we have all three of the boys together, we always TRY for a group shot. It is getting more and more difficult as they get bigger.

James, Henry and Sean.

Nana tries to wrangle Caleb.

The boys are not too pleased about sitting still!

Last week, my good friends, Amy and Mike got married!!! I had been looking forward to going to this wedding for sooooo long! Earlier that day, I got really sick. So sick that I had to send James to the wedding alone. I was so sad I missed the wedding :*( But James got some good pictures for me.
The bride and groom.

Henry enjoying his books in his new room :) The teacher in me, loves that he loves books!

Henry can sign please. So now he signs it all the time! It so cute and so hard to say no to! Here he is saying please for the camera. Now that, I can say no to ;)

Henry has been getting really good at scribbling with crayons. I thought it would be fun to show him how to color on some of the empty cardboard boxes we had laying around. Bad move. He took that to mean, I can draw on other things too, like the freshly painted walls! D'oh! At least it came off pretty easily.
In case you didn't catch that, yes we moved last weekend. I took like zero pictures of the actual move but I have some of the new house to share for next time.

Labor day

I wish every weekend could be a three day weekend! I was able to get my housework done on Saturday, my school work on Sunday, then I spent all day with my boys on Monday. We had such a fun day! :)

Henry discovered how to scribble with our MagnaDoodle!


And he played more in the cabinets. He enjoys doing this so much he now has his own emptied out cabinet to play in :)

The weather was SO nice that we took Henry to Lakeside park to run around on some real grass and look at the water.

He was a little afraid of the water at first.

So he and daddy just walked on the path.


Then he played in the grass.



After playing in the grass, Henry got much braver with the water!

Look how close he got! I really think he would have touched it if his mama had let him ;)

Look at that face!!!

Henry's favorite time! Pictures with mama ;)

Kiss-kiss for mama!

By this point, Henry was done with pictures.

So this was the best family pic would could muster.

Henry's REAL favorite part, the slides! The camera battery was dying so this was the only shot I got, but it's a cute one :)

Good times :)
