I am having some trouble with my memory card reader.  I'll try and figure something out, such as using Eric's camera.  I had some cute pics too. Rrrr!

12.8 Trouble Maker

The terrible twos are in full effect in our household.  Jo is into EVERYTHING!  She is testing the limits constantly.  Tormenting her older sister and the dog.  Then she gets so upset when they get mad at her.  She seems to be a lot more intense than Rye was.  At least with some things.  She is definitely a button pusher.
It's so hard to remember to keep a straight face when she's doing something so funny but so wrong.  It's a work in progress.

Bath Time

Does this picture look familiar Liz?
Playing peekaboo
being a vampire, like max on max & rubys' halloween episode
cheesy grin
jo likes to close her eyes if she closes them you're not talking to her or you're not there.


Just a little picture to share what a hottie my hubby is when he goes for a bike ride.  Very Nice!

December Pictures

I'm joining Heather and Beth in a picture a day for December. I think I'm just gonna do some for the first days here since I'm just starting.
I don't have pictures from everyday but I have at least 2 from some days. So I'm just going to share what I've got so far.
12.1 Jo likes to drag Jasper around 
& he likes to jump

Rye got her haircut today too. She's like me...growing it out, cutting it....growing it out, cutting it

12.3 Jo likes to make faces...

...and take weird pictures of us.

12.4 She also likes to take pictures of EVERYTHING in the house. So much so that the batteries in my camera never last very long. Though she does grab some interesting stuff sometimes. This is her 'mailbox'

She also likes taking pics of Jasper, or Jaba as she calls him

12.5 Jo is still obsessed with YGG, here's a shot of Plex

And here they are together, longing for the out of doors. Jasper will whine if someone leaves the house and he doesn't get to go with.

Umm, so it's kind of sad but most of these were not taken by me, but by Joey. Shows you how much she steals my camera. Good think we got her one for Christmas. She's gonna love it.

Birthday Cake

The Cake
I do what now?
Make a wish!
Immediately wanting to play with the toys.  Our friends, Malinda, Chucky & Austin
Icing on the elbow, due to reaching for Toodee
It tastes way better than she's making it look
Gotta play before I eat
Feed me Daddy!
I'm 2!
Singing "Happy to you" to her friends
Jo has really come alive since Eric has gotten home.  She has become quite the crazy one.  She's so funny, goofy and silly.  She's putting together a lot more words too.  Some of her favorite phrases are: move dad, my spot, my turn, my toy, tummy hurt, leg hurt, no like it, no wanna.
She usually pulls out the 'leg hurt, tummy hurt' when she doesn't want to walk or throw something in the garbage.  It's only slightly amusing.
Some of the things she says really amaze me, but to be honest I can't think of any of them right now.  I'll try and be better about writing them down before I forget them. 

Halloweeny 2009

This year we had Yo Gabba Gabba's DJ Joey Rock and a 50s Hop Diva. This girls had fun and we only had to venture down 2 streets before they were ready to come home. Gotta love that. It was so nice having Eric home with us for the fun.

Jazzy Jasper!

This here puppy, named Jasper, will become the newest member of our family later this month. He's come over to visit twice and is much loved already. We can't wait for him to be with us full time.

Random Dad Time!

Coming Home

We have been so blessed with Eric's homecomings. I've heard stories of them being delayed over and over again. His last one he came in right on time, no changes. This time, we were delayed 2 & half hours, then back tracked and hour and a half.
He is home, safe and sound and we could not be more happy.  Here are some pictures.
Putting up the sign last night
Looking for Eric.  when we pulled up the plane was already there and guys were coming off.  I'd have felt horrible if we weren't there when he got off.  Lucky us he was farther back on the plane.
Others homecoming banners 
guys deboarding
hugs and love.  jo was very shy
they're making the same face

this was jo the whole time we were there.  she started warming up in the car and now she's all spazzy around him, very cute.
