We're back...Ten on Wednesday

1. Vacation was great...Cancun was okay! We realize that our hearts belong in Puerto Vallarta. We liked going somewhere new and we LOVED the Caribbean waters in Cancun, but other than that Cancun was too touristy.

2. Now that we're back from Vacation, I need a vacation to re-coop from the vacation. Lets just say that Paxton is too busy to enjoy a relaxing vacation.

3. During our trip Paxton ate a lot of bananas. Every morning they would have them out for breakfast so I'd give him one for breakfast and then I'd pack one in our bag in case Pax got hungry later. One morning we were all headed to our Jungle adventure. Mom knew that we probably wouldn't make it down in time to get breakfast so she grabbed some bananas and bread for Pax...she then gave his banana and he was good. Well the next day we were on our way into town when Paxton thought he needed a banana. I didn't have any so he asked my mom--she didn't have any, but he thought that she needed to have one and that he REALLY needed a banana. So he kept saying, semi-screaming, I want a banana. Over.and.over! Mom then said, "It wont surprise me if someone gets out a banana for him." Nobody did, but a few minutes later a lady hands us a cookie. It was a ginger cookie in the shape of a Christmas tree, but really it was a Shut-Up cookie. I was okay with that though, it worked :)

4. I love how Paxton always tells me, "I miss my grammm-ah, I wan't my grammm-ah and Papa." It's just so stinkin' cute!

5. Where is all the snow?

6. I love being tan. Why can't I be tan all year round, naturally?

7. I'm expecting a package from FedEx. It was scheduled to be here before 3, it's now after 8 and still no package. I get that they are busy, but if I don't get it I'll be very upset!

8. That package came at 9:00. I'm just glad it came!

9. It's now Saturday. Four days after I started this post! Let's just say we've been busy...

10. Christmas was great! We love being able to see all the family. Later we're heading to watch the Alumni Game at the high school...

I'll post pictures from our vacation soon, I promise!

Ten on Tuesday...Yup Tuesday!

1. I'm finished with Fall quarter...YAY! It was actually a good quarter, it went SO fast, which was good...now on to Winter quarter.

2. I've been a BAD-Bad-blogger lately. SORRY! I'll be better, I promise!

3. My computer got a really N.A.S.T.Y virus last week. It was so bad that I couldn't even work on my computer with the Internet off; it completely took over all my files. I took it in to the computer place Friday and still haven't heard from them-maybe I should call tomorrow.

4. This past weekend we celebrated my mom's 50th birthday. I cannot believe that my mom is 50, the number seems so old, but she doesn't...nor does she look it :) Be proud mom, you are one good-lookin "old-woman."

5. I'm lost without my own computer. I don't have any of my stuff. I have a huge list of pages under my favorites tab that I look at almost everyday, now I'm missing out! I WANT MY COMPUTER!

6. It is freezing outside. COLD! It's funny, when Paxton and I go outside now he covers his face with both his hands and says, "it's SO cold mom." Yet, he still kicks and screams when I make him wear his jacket. What is it with kids and jackets? I remember being the same way, I hated wearing one!

7. I'm finally free of tooth pain....THANK YOU! It puts a huge damper on things, tooth pain is like no other!

8. I really want to try Rosetta Stone, but wonder if it really works like they say. Have any of you tried it, or know of anyone? If so let me know. If it does work as well as people say it would definitely be worth every penny.

9. We're getting ready to head to Cancun, and I am so ready! I'm a little terrified for the flight since we're going non-stop from Seattle. I will be packing one bad full of stuff to keep Paxton entertained....hopefully it works.

10. If you hear on the news of another plane making an emergency landing because of loud-out-of-control-2-year-old that will be us :)

I'll be back soon with some AMAZING pictures!

11. an extra :) I think in the coming year I will be getting my small business license and really be taking my photography further...I'm excited for it! stay-tuned!
