Scott and I took Trevor to see his first movie at the theatre last weekend. He had such a good time. We saw "How to Train Your Dragon." It was a very good movie. During the previews, he saw a tire explode. For the rest of the night, he said "the tire wheel is a balloon wheel" over and over. At first we didn't know what he was talking about because we didn't think any thing of the preview. I can't wait to take him again!
One of my dearest friends, Sarah had her baby shower last week. Baby-Girls-Who-Haven't-Been-Named Marshall are due at the end of June. Sarah's cousin and aunt gave her a wonderful shower. Good food, great company and two blessings to celebrate. Here are some pictures...

CUTE Cake. The one layer was vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream filling and the other layer was chocolate cake with espresso vanilla mocha buttercream filling

Personalized candy bars
Part of the invation requested the guest bring a book to start a collection for the girls. I brought "Knuffle Bunny" the story of a little girl's first words when she can't find her favorite stuffed animal.
A very cute and simple decoration for Sarah and the girls
One of the games we played was to cut a string to the length you thought would go around Sarah and the girls. Cheryl is holding her string exactly around Sarah with nothing to spare! Great job Cheryl!
Meredith takes her turn
Sarah opening her gift from me, Cheryl and my mom. We went together to get Sarah the diaper bag she's been looking for. She also got bottles, pacifiers, and recieving blankets.
So...I'm finally on vacation. I think the last time I took a week's vacation was in April! I'm super excited to I can finally just be in my home. I think that's the worst thing about working full time. We always have something to do on the weekend becuase that's our "down time" which is never down time because we're always running from here to there. So when do I feel like I can relax? Not on week days when I get home at 6-then dinner, playtime, bath, bedtime...then I end up falling asleep watching a show I've been waiting all week to see!
I know I'm rambling. I really have 3 things to do this week:
-Enjoy the weekend in Traverse City with my cousin Sarah and my mom -take Trevor to the Children's Museum with Cheryl -Go through baby stuff and decide what I can part with
Saturday morning --I usually wake Trevor up during the week when its time to get ready for him to go to daycare and me to work. So...I turned off my alarm the night before hoping to sleep in...and Trevor gets up 1/2 hour BEFORE I normally get up. Grrrr. So...now I'm up...its 6 AM... Why not start potty training....again...No more diapers...at all.
You can smile...I get it... I'm still questioning my sanity myself...
In all seriousness, It's going VERY well. Saturday was not the best day but by Sunday evening, we were having success. He's been very responsive and he's actually starting to "get it" and going into the bathroom himself. I'm so proud of my little guy. It took us awhile to get here- Scott and I weren't the best at being consistent-and we're definitely on our way to no more diapers!
Happy New Year...I think. After 3 days of sunshine to start the year and lunch with my girls...I feeling like this was going to be a great year. And I was VERY afraid that I would fall into the same patterns as years past.
Well...I haven't yet. :-) It is only the 5th, but we've had our new treadmill since Saturday and I've been on it two days in a row and I've logged 3.75 miles already. I'm very excited about my accomplishment and can't wait to do more!
My goal is to run a 5k this fall. Wish me luck! Anyone want to run with me??
