Family Photos 2010

Kevin works with an awesome lady named Cheryl. She is one of the instructors and she also has a photography business on the side. She took some wonderful pictures of us last November and we are currently sorting through the ones that are our favorites. We've picked a few that we would love to frame. These are just a handful out of the 100+ that she took.

We used this picture for our Christmas card this year. One of our absolute favorites EVER!!!

Weekend fun!

Nana and Papa came for a visit last weekend. They said they needed to get one more "Mason fix" before their trip to Mexico. Get ready Felipe', they're on the way, says Nana. We had lots of fun as usual. We ate kielbasa, homemade pierogis, and cabbage. A true Polish dinner.

We played outside (Mason's favorite). Nana and Papa brought Mason's tricycle from Christmas. We couldn't fit it in the car on the last trip. What a neat first bike! Mason seems to like it, although he wanted to give his ball a turn to ride too. What a nice boy. Already sharing.

The really neat thing about this bike is the tall handle bar comes off. Once Mason is able to ride on his on, you just remove the handles. Pretty neat, huh! There are even cup holders for the parents to put their drink and a compartment in the back for snacks. Very Cool!!

Thank you Nana and Papa. We'll have lots of fun with this new toy.

Mason's Desk

Remember, this used to be my desk. Kevin sanded and stained it a darker color for Mason. We had it in the playroom in our other house, but since our living room is now the playroom (along with the whole house), we've moved it. Mason seems to like it. He's still not quite big enough, but he manages just fine. I can see him sitting there coloring in a short while.

Boy, has he grown so fast. Each day is a new milestone. Every day he says a new word that I didn't know he knew. He sees pictures through out the house and says names. A picture of Bailey: "Dog", and picture of Mason: "Baby", a picture of the three of us: "Daddy". He never says Mommy for some reason. He probably doesn't recognize me. In the picture, I actually have my hair fixed and makeup on, but during the week with him at home, I look a hot mess! HA!

"Side, side"

Mason's vocabulary has definitely tripled in the last couple of months. He says more words than we give him credit. One of his favorites is "Side" aka, outside. He LOVES going outside to play or just walk around. No matter the temperature, he'll stay out there for hours, if you let him.

His other favorite word is: Ball. He drags out the word to make it a couple of syllables. Kevin said he is going to sound very Southern. Nothing wrong with that, right?
