Christmas 2009

I gotta say for 2009 I was way late in the Christmas card department. Was it just me? Anyway if you did get a card it would have had one of these pictures in it. I swear I could take pictures of Kobi all day! If I could only keep up with him! So out of about 80 pics these were my favorite :) I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Kobi needs no more toys until the year 2020 now and I will have to buy some kind of massive organization system for the basement but hey the way his face lit up tearing open those presents was totally worth the price of all the new plastic bins I will have to purchase! Hehe!

I am thankful for...

Snow blowers a strong back and oil heat! I normally never post a non-Kobi picture but 21 inches of snow is on our deck! Now its time to make some snow angels!

Happy Anniversary Kiddo!

Another year has passed and this "Gotcha Day" we headed over to the B&O Railroads in Baltimore. Every year I try to take Kobi on an excursion and do something fun. December 18th will always mark one of the most important days on this earth for me and so each year I try to celebrate it with Kobi by doing something new and fun for him. Last year was the museums in DC, the previous year was the Baltimore Aquarium and of course my favorite "Gotcha Day" was in Taiwan when I got to hold my son for the first time. Kobi had a blast! I never dreamt that looking at old trains would be hours of entertainment but in this kiddos eyes... it was a good day!

This has to be one of my favorite photos! I know I took 30 hours of mandatory parenting classes and I should have totally abided by the museums rules but he's only off the floor by a foot or two and that train is like solid steel. :)
The ceiling was really amazing! This picture so doesn't do it justice but it would be awesome for some less photographically challenged people to take some amazing pics of.

Yeah... he's rolling around on the ground. Germs everywhere, people cringing when they walked by (I swear giving me dirty looks) but hey he's three and hubby was working so I had no backup here. LOL!
We met up with one of mama's girlfriends and this is another good picture. Kobi's buddy Brady is covering the sign that says do not play on this car but clearly the boys had a different plan.

Yep... those are ropes your not suppose to cross.

Not a good picture of us but its the best we got today. Even the "sports" setting on the camera is sometimes to slow to keep up with a three year old!
I can't believe how much my baby has grown!

No Order Whats So Ever...

I asked for omelette's one morning and look what daddy cooked for me. Of course Kobi helped. Boy how my boys spoil me :)

Matt took these Redskin jersey pics about a month ago and I've been meaning to post them. I'm sure the game they were watching while mama was out shopping totally blew but it looked like Kobi was having fun in the backyard.

These are actually pretty current photos... I know go figure! LOL! I especially like how Kobi decorated his gaudy tree star with two ornaments. Hey its his tree so there is no rules.

At last I have been meaning to post the pics of the crib duvet I made for my friend/ coworker. I must say I am proud. It took twelve hours to complete by hand (my sewing machine gave out on this ones thick fabric but I especially love the cream fabric and had to have it!) They classified it as velvet although it felt much nicer. The buttons I made with a kit (very easy!) and the inside is lined with the soft mint green fabric that secures the comforter in by velcro. What do you think? Making this one really made me wish I was bring a little girl home any day:)
