Camera & Flowers

I just had 2 little things to add today...

1. Dustin got me some very cheerful flowers for Valentines Day. That would be almost 2 weeks ago. Never in the history of cut flowers did I know they could last this long and still look so perfect. I am beginning to question if they are fake? Nah, they're real, but I'm still amazed they look this good after 2 weeks!

2. I got this idea out of a magazine, so I can't claim credit, but I tried it and love it. I like to keep my camera in my purse, but my camera big is a little too big to put in my purse. So I took one of Dylan's baby socks and put the camera in it. It fits perfectly, it's cute and soft and it protects the camera (and is easily washable when it gets dirty!). Certainly a tip I wanted to share!

Remembering Jacob's 1st Birthday

So I was looking through some old videos with the kids and I found this one. It's Jacob's first birthday. Both of my kids went full throttle with the 1st birthday smash cakes. Yes, it's fun and makes for excellent pictures, but just remember that a serious bath has to take place afterwards!

Happy Birthday Dustin!

Today is Dustin's Birthday. Given he had his gallbladder removed on Wednesday, we didn't get to do too much partying (I know, hush, as if we really "party" anyway, right?). But Jacob and I made "faux petit fours" and we had a picnic lunch down by the waterfall in Old Towne Helena. Then we played on the playground nearby. It was such a beautiful day!

Throwing rocks in the water was the highlight for the boys.

This would be Dylan pitching a fit because the rock throwing had to come to an end.
