merrick is one!
i can't beleive it....
wow still in aw. my fella is very mobile. loves to be chased. hide n seek. eats everything! loves milk. still takes two very long naps and sleeps about12 hours every night. loves to show off his dimples. push his tonka cars around. loves to push buttons especially the printer. very talkative. into his books and loves story time before bed. loves to pick on his sister. hides or screams when its time to get dressed. sings to the radio in the car. loves to be on the couch and hang over the back.... loves his bobbys (doggies).
love you merrick!

sorry that i have been absent from the blogging scene. things have been a bit crazy here with the holidays and my aching back and neck. also kasey working a ton, plus
i promised myself that i would spend more time with my little fella then on the computer wasting time. with his first birthday in a couple weeks i realized that this past year had gone WAY to fast and that my kitchen could wait. my tv show can wait. that i could fold my laundry after bed time.
i hope that everyone has a great holiday season! our visit to santa went great. no tears. only a shy jordan and waiting for 15 min. in 28 degree weather to sit on the ol boys lap. these two were stoked!

i love you. i'm glad that you were my loving, wise, talented aunt. with amazing taste, gardening skills and a cooking guru. you were always welcoming, gentle and fun. one of the most lovable women that i know! i loved spending my summers at your house... eating wonderful treats... playing with the animals... making memories with cousins... playing at the dunes... sneaking your pickled beans and jams out of the cellar... looking at old family photos and hearing stories... i feel like i had a life full of memories but yet had a sleepless night thinking of all that i thought i had missed out on. but had just come to the conclusion that i was very lucky. very lucky to have you as my aunt.
i love you. thank you. and you will always be here with us. take care of the boys.

merrick has a new place that he likes to play.. the laundry basket. it all started long ago when i would go down to the basement to do the laundry. me, the multi-tasker, would empty the dryer in the basket plop merrick on top of the pile and he would ride up the stairs in the load... he loves it! smiling and laughing the whole time... but tonight after dinner i put him on the floor to go play and before i knew it he was inside the empty basket. so we decided to go for a 'drive' around the house...
he was laughing hysterically! i love moments like that! then i decided to play basket ball... i would make them in, he would pass them back... one more thing that he is totally good at these days! then when he was ready to get out he would rock the basket to the side to crawl his way out.
i love this kid.

sorry these took so long to get up... but you know how it goes... we had tons of fun! paka was here... started out doing a corn maze... came home, we all dressed up, turned the orange lights on out side and walked over to the stoddards house for the hot dog roast. trick or treated around the neighborhood... cotton candy at the dewals... hot chocolate at the denisons... very fun night!
kasey had been a lumber jack the night before at a party we attended. ax, spenders & flannel... oh my! he fit the part to a T. but when we went out halloween night around the neighborhood he decided to go with the biker beard.
my pops was here! i think that it is becoming tradition to have my parents here for halloween... i seriously don't mind! pops was the devil... yeah right, no evil plots going on here... but we did joke about my dad wearing no shirt with only the sequenced bow tie (shown here) in a photo shoot for my moms xmas present... mom watch in the mail for your chip n dales portfolio.
and then there is me... dork... at work we dressed up as flies in our department and one of the guys dressed up as a turd... ha ha we got most creative though! later that night i was cleopatra. head to toe... beaded head piece, arm and wrist cuffs... gown and sandals for the party... but like my other half... wig did just fine while out with the kids... good call though cause it kept my head warm!

has it really been almost three weeks since i lasted posted something?? sorry about that...
we have been busy...
mainly this guy...
two weeks ago he had a nasty fever that lasted 5 days! the highest... 103.8! but during the late mornings and afternoons he would get down to about 100.6. it was so sad... he was really cuddly, wouldn't eat that well, and sleep? what sleep? we felt so bad for him... found out that he had a major sore throat... and getting two more teeth.
then he got a major snotty nose and cough... with some nasty gala galas.
two days ago he woke up from a nap with a popped vessel in his right eye (in photo above) that quickly turned the white of his eye bloody red. so now gets meds for that and today looks tons better!
but through it all he has still been his playful, happy, laughing self! in fact yesterday i caught him army crawling around the living room!
