9 Weeks….

by anne laney on March 6, 2014

Ashton really loves this art school. Today was the last day of the winter semester. Spring semester starts in a few weeks and Ashton has already stated it’s way too far away. I agree. I love seeing his art work every week.

Midnight Hour…

by anne laney on March 6, 2014

I always make a quick check on Ashton around midnight. Sometimes he will read a book and leave the light on but it seems tonight he either turned it on intending to get a book to read but realized he was just too dog gone tired OR the book fell beside the bed next to the wall. Don’t Care. I’m just glad the shutter on my camera didn’t fully wake him.


Went to the doctor today for my flank pain I have been having for several months. They did an ultrasound and ordered a slew of blood work and uh.. a fecal test? I’m shocked by that one.. I’m not sure I want to even go there. I was excited about the ultrasound but it turns out it is not as near as fun as a pregnancy ultrasound and by gosh IT HURT! My stomach is very tender and achy right now. Was in there for a good 45mins of her pushing the wand down on my stomach and making me hold my breath. I just hope they don’t find anything. I am freaking out it’s cancer :o /. Hopefully they will contact me with good results.


Our little Ashton is officially a Ski Bunny!

February 27, 2014

Can’t be said for everyone else ::cough cough:: David, MOM ::cough cough::…. ESPECIALLY David who thought skiing lessons [...]

Ashton hoped it would snow after seeing the forcast last night…

February 6, 2014

and it did.. amazingly no schools were closed. I saw a ton of school buses today on the way to art class, (which also was not cancelled but not very many kids showed up). No snowman’s this time. Snow was very dry and didn’t stick together very well. I’m just glad it finally snowed.. we [...]

That Is One Tired Boy…

February 5, 2014

Because this boy does NOT take naps anymore. That’s right, naps finally stopped a month ago! I mourned my private time but Ashton has been really great about just sitting and playing quietly by himself so I get to keep my private time, (aka Etsy work time) for the most part. Either preschool was a [...]

So Guess Who Is A Germaphobe?

FACELESS PEOPLE NOT ALLOWED! lmao. When I correct him teasing that only people with faces are allowed he corrected me and said, “no.. NO BOYS OR GIRLS EXCEPT ME!”.. Well then.. Let me give you your first can of lysol.

Get ready I am about to tackle these German pictures.. I mean it this time haha ;o). Nuremeberg… Where they make donuts with gummiebears.. they also had the most delicious custard inside the donuts, like a creme donut but keeping the traditional donut shape. I wonder how they did that. Where they prove once again [...]
