Can I Share?

Wanna piece of me?

"Where's my snow pants?" This is really what she was asking me.

I love snow....especially eating it.

I just thought this picture was funny.

Emyri's been going to "preschool", a toddler group my friend Mandy set up. She loves it and insists on wearing her backpack there. This is em's practicing her skills at home.

Play dough competition. I made Plankton, chad made Patrick. Who wins?

These are my ninja's! What nerds: ) Man, I love them!

Just licking the bowl...

This is a little game we like to call "Food Shopper". All you have to do is respond when Emy says, "What do-ya want?" : )

Happy Valentine's Day!

Emyri jamming to her own piano tune: )

Chad's been working out a lot lately and Emyri's been really getting into it: ) She whole heartedly enjoyed letting us dress her up in some eighties work out gear and doing some moves for us. We equally enjoyed it: )

And one, and two.....

And just because I realized the other day that I have never posted a pregnant picture.
This was a few weeks ago, but there's the belly bump: ) Any day now!

What's on your play list?

I need your help. For one of Chad's Christmas presents I told him I would reorganize our I-pod music and find some more good songs to put on there. So far, he has bee the one doing most of the bad...but we're on the hunt for some new good tunes. So this is where I need you. Have you heard any awesome songs lately? What are some of your old favorites too? Leave us a comment and tell us all about the music you love and we'll go check it out. Thanks everyone.

And just so the sharing goes both ways, I found this awesome song and artist the other day while on another blog. Thanks Manda: )

conversations with my e-walk

While riding in the car...
"Let's be like daddy. Let's be a dork." Followed by a string of incoherent noises and weird faces; her best impression of the man. : )

During church she is sitting on my lap when she stops and takes a good look at the newly developed blemish on my face.
"Mom? What's that?"
"It's a zit.'
"Like Daddy?"
"Yeah, sometimes daddy gets those too."
"Oh, I get zits when I'm sick."
"You do huh?"
"Yeah, I get zits when I'm sick."

After showing me one of her "tricks" which consisted of jumping from cushion to cushion while throwing out some crazy arm movements I said.....
"Man Emyri, How'd you get so tricky?"
"Umm, because Jesus loves me."
I can't help but smile...
"Yep Emyri, Jesus does love you."

While making Emyri's crib into a toddler bed (finally!), I knew Emyri would be pretty excited, but I didn't know just how excited. She just kept squealing and jumping around saying, "Oh my goodness, this is so amazing!"

When Chad got home from school the other day, Emyri woke up after hearing the door close. When Chad poked his head in her room she exclaimed in her little high pitched excited voice..."Dad! Nice to see you!"

Sometimes in her prayers she will say, "Thank you for Jesus...and we will hug Him and kiss Him." : )

Just barely while I'm sitting here typing this, she's making the cushions into a bed on the floor while singing, "Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog!"

All I can say is I love this girl and there's never a dull moment with Emyri around: )

Pay It Forward

I got this idea from my friend Brittney and was lucky enough to be one of the first three to leave a comment....and therefore get a hand made gift from her. So here's how it works if you want to play.

Pay It Forward Exchange is based on the concept of the movie "Pay it forward". I will send a hand made gift to the first three people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join the PIF exchange. All the gifts will be made and posted out 'sometime within the next year'. How exciting to not know when your surprise package will arrive! What you need to do in return, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. This Exchange is only open to those with active websites or blogs. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PROMISE TO POST THIS SAME 'PAY IT FORWARD' MESSAGE ONTO YOUR BLOG, WHICH MUST BE ACTIVE IN ORDER TO PLAY. YOU WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO THREE PEOPLE WHO COMMENT ON YOUR BLOG. I'd love for you to join me! Will you? Other comments are welcome, but only the first three will be my Pay It Forward recipients. Come and join me who doesn't love a gift or giving gifts???
