Happy Valentines Day

We hope everyone had a good Valentines Day. Ours was pretty uneventful...we went downtown to the Bend Winterfest, and watched a bit of the rail jam competition (snowboarding), and listened to the live band then after about 45 minutes of that Colton started to get pretty cold and couldn't sit still for much longer so we went home, that was pretty much the excitement for our weekend. The weather is back to "winter weather"...snow is in the forecast...great! i am ready for summer, those few weeks of the upper 50s, low 60's was a pretty big tease, however we did get a few good trips to the park in. Things are going well here with us, Colton is keeping me busy all day and i am still working a few days at the gym daycare. Carson is slowing down with work right now, we are hoping some things will open up for them here before to long. Colton is doing great, growing like a weed, hard to believe that he will be 2 next month, and i am already planning his 2nd birthday party. The potty training thing didn't go to well... i actually just got lazy and decided i wanted to leave the house so we will try again when i have nothing else to do. Here are a few updated pictures of Colton, Carson and I. a few weekends ago we took Colton to the High Desert Museum he loved it! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

potty training....

well, i decided that this weekend would be the weekend to TRY to potty train Colton. he is now almost 23 months, he has used the potty several times, so i thought "what the heck".... So, today we ventured out to the good old Wally-world, to stock up on some big boy undies.... oh the choices he had... we got Elmo, Cookie Monster, Cars, Thomas the Train, and many more... then of course, had to stop by the candy isle to p/u a bag of M&M's so I have something to bribe the boy with once he goes on the potty. So,i decided that today (Friday) would just be my tester day and get him used to the idea of wearing the undies, so, only about 40 minutes into his first pair, they were already wet, didn't even seem to phase him that he was running around in a wet pair of underwear, ..... my night pretty much just continued on with the many changes of them, and ended with my first experience of a poopy one... ohhh, yuck! So, wish me luck as tomorrow will be a very, very long day for me. hopefully by tomorrow evening, he will somewhat have the hang of it.

first time blogger

well, i thought since it seemed like I was pretty much the one and only person who does not have a "blog" these days i thought i would give it a try and make one. I think it might be an easy way for my family and friends to see updates of our family, and see how we are doing. i will try my best to updated it weekly... well, ok maybe not weekly but as much as i can. i hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!
