So I think it's time I put my best foot forward and made this blog Private.
You never know who could be out there, and I want to protect my children.
Anyone is invited, just leave me your email address and I will add you.
I will be doing this by the end of the week, so hurry!

So I am in desperate need of some Mommy advice.
My Nixon is a very VERY friendly 3 year old.
Which for the most part I think is a good thing.
Until I found him sitting on some strangers lap at the ball park the other day.
It FREAKED ME OUT!!
I told him that we needed to have a talk about strangers and how we don't go talk to people that Mommy doesn't know.
Obviously my talk didn't work because
He proceeded to tell me that he "loved" the girls lap he was sitting on.
So I need ideas of how to scare him just enough not to sit on strangers laps, or get into their cars.
But not so afraid that he won't ever leave the house again.

I just found some fun pictures from the year Blake and I got married and wanted to reminisce.
About a month and a half after we went on our honeymoon Blake called me up one day and told me that he won a trip from the radio station to go to San Jose California to go to the Final Four NCAA game. I of course didn't believe him, until he showed me the tickets.
The trip to California was for three days and two nights. Free airfare, hotel stay, and one meal? why only one I have no idea... They should have just gone for the gold! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I Guess these tickets are hard to come by??
Waiting for the shuttle to take us to the Stadium where the game was being played.
(I don't know why I look so happy in this picture, I must have not known it was being taken!)
Hubbs with the tickets.
Line for the mens bathroom... Yeah you heard me right THE MENS! When I needed to go, I got right in and did my business and Blake was still waiting clear at the end.
A few shots of the game. I don't even remember who was playing that day. I should google it, or ask Blake I'm sure he would remember.
Enjoying the game!
We decided to walk back to the hotel from the game instead of riding the shuttle. We found a park with lots of interesting things
Blake in a log
A funny chair
The tunnel from the outside! It was so tall.
We had so much fun on our FREE trip, I think it's time we won another one. Maybe to some exotic place somewhere.

This little Lady just gets prettier the older she gets!
She is sitting up all by herself all the time now, but still needs to learn how to lay down on purpose, and without banging her body on the ground.
Gwen can pick up food and put it in her mouth all by herself. She loves being a big girl and eating snacks alone. Her favorites at the moment are Cheerios
Gwen is getting better at playing on the floor by herself for a short amount of time, as long as she can still see me. If I leave the room she screams till I walk back in, and then she smiles and laughs.
Gweny has learned how to blow raspberries, smack her lips together, and even managed to grow in 2 teeth over the past month. One sticks up quite a bit further than the other one so she looks like a snaggletooth. You can almost see it in the above pic, her bottom left tooth was the first to pop up.
She has even learned to roll in a complete circle and not just do the flip flop motion from side to side. She will play on the floor and then when I look at her after a few minutes she has rolled either across the room, under a table or into some sort of furniture.
And of course, Gwen is still completely infatuated with her brother! She just adores him!

This year we decided to sign Nixon up for T-Ball. He was so excited to start, we got him a new mitt, and a bat and some balls.
A few weeks before his first game we found out who is coach was and the team he was going to be playing for.
Blake was thrilled when we found out Nixon would be representing the Red Sox because they are his favorite team.
Nixon's first game was a few weeks ago.
Up to bat.
I love that they coach pitch the ball to the kids and if they don't hit it after a certain amount of tries than they pull out the tee.
It took Nixon a little while to get the hang of holding the bat right, and when he would swing he would spin in a complete circle
He didn't hit it the first few times, and when they would pull out the tee, instead of hitting the ball he would push it off with his bat.
And as you can tell he gets bored when it's their turn in the outfield. He always complains because the other kids get the ball before he does. Hmmm.... I wonder why? Those weeds in the grass are pretty distracting if you ask me!
This was his game tonight.
Team hudle before the game. Nixon is Rockin' the #5!
He is starting to do better each time he plays. He hit the ball on the first pitch each time he was up to bat tonight. He did so great!
Hopefully by the time he plays next year he won't have to have a stick marking the place where he is supposed to stand, and make the team call him by a superhero name. Today it was "Ben 10" and the opposing team was "aliens" that he was "shooting."
Boys are so funny!
