Heavenly Senses

I hope this is what heaven smells like...

And I hope this is what it sounds like.

You're Invited

to my book party! I'm hosting a book party Thursday, April 24th at 7:00 pm. If you live close to me then stop on by (there will be food...that's why I go to many of these "parties") and if not then check out the website. They have really neat books, puzzles and games.

Go to www.ubah.com/N2059 and then click on the "Enter Bookstore Here!" button and then click on my name off to the right under Active eShows.

I've bought a few of their things before and here are some of my and Jimmy's favs (click on the pic for prices/info):

He absolutely loves these puzzles. He can't quite get the pieces together yet but he loves to sort them and then I help him put them together.

They have several books that are touchy-feely.
Jimmy doesn't have this exact train set, but he got one from my parents that is similar to this and he will spend hours putting it together and taking it apart. It's one of his favorite toys and it's one that Jarom and I have fun with too.

And here are a few on my wish list:

You can make a "Counting Train" puzzle by taking out the pieces on each page and fitting them together on the floor. (Jimmy's big into trains and puzzles.)

There's a track that you build and then wind up the train and it moves around the track. How cute!

So there you have it. I've always loved books and I hope Jimmy continues to. Jarom and I both grew up loving to read. In fact a lot of my babysitting money when I was younger went towards buying books. It's fun to still have that collection now and pass them onto my boys. Jarom's mom used to send him to his room when he got in trouble until she found out that he loved it because he would go in there and read. She then had to find a new "punishment"!

one random post

I know this is way overdue.
I am pleased to present to you one very random post. enjoy.

making "pink cookies"

Jimmy is really quite clean for a two-year-old boy. The other night before bed, without being asked, he straightened all his tools, put away all of Glade's toys, vacuumed the floor, put my book neatly on my bed, put his bowl in the sink and asked me to put away my sewing machine! What's next...maybe I'll teach him to take out the trash.

"Oh, cute tih-wee!"
My mom has 4 adorable kittens. Anybody want one? What about one of my neighbors...Emma, Ashlee, Missy, Brittney...that way Jimmy can come play with it and I don't have to deal with it! You know you want one. Did I mention they're free and cute?
Too bad Shell left just before we took this pic.

Scooter rides anyone?

I think we have ourselves a boy!

My mini multi-tasker

Just waiting for the spiders to come out and play.

I'm obsessed with this little boy's thumb...seriously, it's so adorable...all fat and chunky!
Okay, his face is pretty adorable too.

Do I have any pro slinky-detanglers out there?
