It's in Print!

Broke down and printed my blog. and I LOVE it! I used Blog2Print site, although I think there are several sites out there you can use. I must say that I'm glad I waited over 3 years to do it so its a bigger book. But you do pay per page. So I didn't want to wait TOO long. The book came in the mail today, and I am VERY impressed (not with what's in it but the actual book itself). The site said it would take almost 2-3 weeks to get it, and I got it in less than a week. And the quality is great... much better than the proof you see when you order it. I condensed mine since you are paying per page but it will mess the captions up under the pictures because they will move the pictures and the size of the pictures. There are so many options to choose from when designing too. I chose the house to cover the front because no family pic was recent enough (or good enough for me to put on a hardbacked cover! ha!). And I thought the house summed up our family in a sense. SO! Here's the finished product:

The front cover. The back cover.



The dedication page. I chose one of the many nicknames for my babies. This was the hardest page to decide.



Sorry these are sideways...

A Special Valentines Story

Boy meets girl.




Boy likes girl.




Boy kisses girl.




Boy can't get enough of girl.
"Wait, don't go!! I can explain!" boy says.



Girl just wants her momma.




"YES! I did it! I stole a kiss on Valentine's Day!!!"
Happy Valentine's Day from this one's FIRST and very memorable day!

Where is Mattox?

ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE!!!! I can not keep up with him. I wish I had taken a picture of him in the fireplace. Not just sitting at the fireplace - I mean literally IN the fireplace sitting on top of the logs. Thank goodness we don't have a pilot light on. He is in the toilet, going up the stairs, climbing on everything, and already busted his lip! First bloody accident! First of many to come I'm sure.

And also not on me. He quit me. I cried for awhile, but knew it was coming soon, just not that day. With MC, I had a love/hate relationship with nursing, but just love with Mattox. He made it so easy. Just keep reminding me that growing up is a good thing and the time was right. **sniff sniff** :(
He's in the pantry...making a mess. Was actually standing on that roll of paper plates.
He's in the curtains trying to break out through the window.
He's in timeout with MC. He put himself there actually.


And he's in the bathtub b/c all that crawling around on the floor makes him DIRTY! :)
Sorry for the boring update... just staying inside and warm today. Getting ready for our annual Superbowl party this weekend!!! And I actually went to WORK yesterday! I needed to train on the new computer system so I picked the absolute 'best' day to drive across town in this gorgeous weather :/ I hydroplaned twice on the way home. So everyone please be careful if you have to get out.
