life in pictures...

Life in pictures... I'm thinking about making that the new title to my blog. Not really, but the more I think about it, the more I'm thinking that's all I have time for these days, if that.

Anyhow, Today is Todd's 30th birthday, and what better way to spend your birthday than with your baby boy on the tractor? (That is if you have to work anyway, I did try to talk him into calling in sick this morning, but he wouldn't do it.) Tony was so excited too when I was driving him over to Todd, as soon as he spotted the tractor he got all giddy and started saying "da-da"

He even has is own little seat in the tractor.
Todd and I figured Anthony would like tractor rides some day, but we didn't realize it would start this early, we thought maybe next year or the year after. He has actually gone on several already, and is content for a couple hours just riding. (which is good for me)


Tony enjoying a little cool whip. Last night we had angel food cake with strawberries and whip cream for Todd and Jason's (francie's boyfriend) birthday. Normally Tony would eat all the cake and then want seconds, but he wasn't so fond of angel food cake. He did however eat the cool whip face first!

Here they are being sweet, happy, and content not being held by me, a real rarity these days.



After eating cake with no hands last night, he decided to eat his snack the same way today. I hope he doesn't make a habit of this, it's rather messy. I guess as long as he's eating though, I'm happy.Baby Bella
This was Todd's tractor when he was a little boy. He gave it to Tony last week and he loves it, we can't keep him off of it. He's a little too small for it, he can't sit on the seat or reach the pedals and he can only go backwards in it, but he is so happy to have it. Maybe next winter the two of them can fix it up a bit with some John Deere paint.



Here is Bella in the Bumbo chair for the first time. She isn't quite strong enough to hold her head up all the way and her hair is still wild as ever.

Very cute pictures.
Happy Birthday Todd! Welcome to the thirties club.

Did I miss Francie's engagement?

Shannon, I said Francie's boyfriend not fiance. Your going to start rumors with a comment like that. So to answer your question, no you didn't miss anything, unless we all did. Todd and Jason share the same birthday and they come over every tues for American Idol so we had cake a day early.

Okay, I have to say it... isn't it just a little funny that we celebrated Todd's bday last night, and then whatever you guys do tonight for his bday and then another time this weekend??? Especially, for HIM because you know how he is about celebrating bday's when it's not a person's bday! lol

Love the new layout — and the new pictures!
I didn't realize your hubby was so young. Ahh, 30 — it was just two years ago for me, but it still seems like such a long time ago!

I know you changed the parenthesis because it originally said FIANCE'. I checked it twice before I wrote the last comment. :),

My boyfriend and his best friend are addicted to American Idol. We've been getting together too to all watch it. :)

I *finally* got the baby gift package mailed out to you today, and now I'm banging my head on the desk for forgetting to put Tony's Christmas gift in with it. One of these days I'll get my act together! Fortunately he is too young to feel slighted!

I am going out to purchase a bumbo chair today. They were not out when I had the other two. I have heard great things about them. I think my newest would love it, he is already trying to get up and run with the big brothers!
Great pictures. You really have it all together!

We have the same green child tractor!! Although it was not passed down from the family, my husband bought it at a garage sale when my girl was first born. It seemed like it took forever before the kids were big enough, and now it's shared with little ones in the neighborhood since my kids are too big. A favorite.

LOVE the photo of your husband and son in the tractor!! And Bella is so cute! :)

I love the pics of Todd and Tony in the tractor! How cool that he can ride around with Daddy while he works. I'm sure Todd loves teaching him all about farming :)
The little tractor is too cute!
