Superbowl Sunday

Mike and I had some friends over for the much hyped Superbowl game. I made lots of food, Nachos, homemade Pizza and two types of wings...and for the first 3 quarters that was the highlight of the game. The fourth quarter got better but that was when Tyler decided to get restless and wanted to play....a few of our friends indulged him!!

Oh and Tyler (and Mike and I) made a new friend Jim!!

Flu bug got us all...well almost!

Well two weekends the flu bug ripped through our house and got everyone except Mike! How he managed not to get the most awful stomach flu I have ever had is beyond me! Tyler got it first, then me then Jacqui!! Here are a bunch of pictures of Tyler right at the beginning of the flu, during and after....

Jacqui and Tyler right when he first got sick

Tyler and Mike snuggling the night after Tyler had been sick.....

Tyler on Papa...he is starting to feel better now.....

Tyler is feeling totally better so Mike is out playing ball with Tyler, because now Jacqui and I are sick!!

Tyler (well really Mike!) got me Charmed Season 1 for Christmas and I have been watching it like mad! I love this show, and used to watch it on TV when they actually showed it here in Canada!! I am basically almost through the 1st season and now can't wait to get to Season 2!!

Tyler loves babies...

Tyler loves babies! He actually keeps asking for a baby brother or sister, and we keep telling him that isn't happening!! Well this is a picture of Tyler holding our neighbors grandbaby "Alex"! Tyler was in his glory!!

Kids say the cutest things.....

So the other night Tyler says to me "Mommy when I get older I am going to marry you and live with you forever!" My first thought was "Awww that is soo cute" my second thought was "NO WAY IN HELL!!" haha!! He is too cute sometimes!!!

Deer...lots of Deer!!

We often get deer in our yard, actually, if I go a whole week and don't see a deer it is an odd week. When we first moved in to this house, the deer drove me nuts as I am not a gardner at all but was trying to be and spending time out the in yard gardening only for the deer to come along and eat everything. So, I've pulled out all the flower beds and now I love seeing the deer. This picture is of a very young deer actually walking up to me! I was only about 3 feet from this deer, standing in my front door and my camera was fully zoomed out! I sure wish Tyler had of been home!!

A person who hates having her picture taken....

As Mike can confirm, I HATE having my picture taken. Actually I loathe it! My favorite place to be when pictures are being taken is behind the camera, which is why there are not a lot of pictures of me!! Until recently my thoughts have been there is nothing good about having my picture taken. Well this week I have been to, two memorial services for people I know, and it has become very apparent to me that having your picture taken is one of those gifts that you give to people! Its not necessarily something you do for yourself but something you do so that others can enjoy pictures of you!

So, I've made a promise to myself that 2008 will be the year that I start having more pictures taken of me. Well, that is as long as my hair and make up are done then the pictures can be taken!! :-)
