He's been saying "DADADADADADADADADAD" for a couple weeks, and we weren't sure if he even knew what he was saying or maybe just babbling. So when he started in with mamamamamama I wasn't thinking he knew that was ME. We've been encouraging him by saying momma and dadda all the time, but then this afternoon we were playing and he reached for me with his little chubby arms and said "MAMMAMMAMMAMM" and my heart was melting into the carpet. Oh the ooozing sweetness!
Tomorrow is the 100th day of school. It was supposed to be earlier but the snow days pushed us back some. There are 3 teachers on my team and the teacher that always does all the extra cute things for the kids (cakes, cookies, hotdogs, gifts, extra awesome art projects, ect) is taking chemo treatments after having cancerous tumors (stage 1.5) removed. To say the least, she is tired all the time. My other teammate is pregnant, so I said that I would make the 100th day cakes. So that's what Carson and I have done tonight. CAKES. ALL CAKES. I hope Kenny makes it home with my camera before I go to bed so I can get good pictures. Otherwise you will have to settle for phone pics. Those are just not as good, but there's no way these cakes are going unpublished, not when there's THREE of them!! Happy 100th Day of School To ME! That means less than 80 to go. Whew.

I am so proud of Kenny and all his hard work he has done lately. He is a normally VERY hard working business owner, however, lately, the phone has been ringing NON STOP (that means lots of $$$$) and he has been going nonstop. I don't normally talk about his work or his level of business on here, but I just have to throw out there how stinkin' proud I am of him. He started this business over 10 years ago from nothing, and has built it up to what it is today, and even though most days I don't think he sees the how far he has come, I do, and I just never get enough opportunities to tell him how proud I am of all that he does, for the business and for us. Love you K!
Off to finish up the last hour of the day and then I'm outta here!!!!!! Home to my boys!
One more thing....I will try to take pics of how much snow we have in our yard, it's so deep! I love it! I know you all think I'm crazy for loving it, but I do!!!

Today was another snow day!!! Talk about great luck!!! I was oh so happy to wake up this morning and find inches of snow and no school. Like a dream come true. Here's a picture of how we started my snow day. Bad quality, I know, but I just grabbed my phone and took a picture, nothing fancy!! I think Carson enjoys snow days as much as I do.

Today was my momma's bday and between Kenny & I and my brother, we pooled our $$ and gave her a gift card to Macy's so she could get her fiestaware flatware that she's been wanting for a while. Due to the snow, she didn't drive to my house today so I called her, told her what her gift was (a complete surprise), gave her the numbers on the gift card and WHAM a few hours later she had her flatware was ordered!! And she is one happy Momma!!! Yay!
Seven months old my baby is today....whew! Here he is hamming it up for the camera, which he immediatly tried to grab ahold of and put in his mouth!!! He's close to crawling I think, but I don't think he WANTS to crawl. He would just rather have momma carry him or hand his toys over. He is so much fun, always smiling and drooling and laughing and he's also very close to saying dada. I was hoping his first word would be momma, but he's saying dada, however he isn't meaning Kenny. He is just babbling, but sooner or later he will figure out WHO dada is!!
The next two days are going to be COMPLETE CRAZE at work. They are the last two days before we have a one week midwinter break. Even if today hadn't been a snow day, the week before vacation is rough. However, being that today the kids were at home, tomorrow is count day complete with an in-school dance, and Friday there will be school-wide Valentine's Day celebrations, and to top it all off, both days are free dress, which means students will be in their regular clothing, not uniforms, which always leads to "different" behavior. So I'm crossing my fingers, making sure my lessons are tight and I'm overly prepared with extra work and rewards!! The busier they are the better they are!!
