It's about time!

I haven't blogged about my kid's in awhile do to my crafts being posted on here all the time, but I have fixed that problem! I have created a craft blog! Go HERE to view it! Anyway back to my kids!

Brock- Brock is the best big brother! He is so good to Jaylee, most of the time. There are times he thinks it is funny to tease her. Brock is starting to read very well! It amazes me how fast they learn to read. He loves to play with his friends, sometimes a little too much. I have had to put restrictions on his playing time. He loves to play his DS, PS3, and the Wii. He is still very picky about what he eats. Still no meat! I hope he will out grow this soon. He just had another performance for Basque dancing in January and he is now waiting for baseball to start. He is excited that he doesn't have to play T-ball anymore!

Jaylee- She is growing up so fast! She is completely weened and has done very well with it. She still has no teeth, but a big bump on the bottom. She loves to pull herself up onto things, especially things that she can push around while she walks. She isn't walking by herself yet, but I think if we practiced a little more with her she would. She isn't big into her baby food. She loves bananas, crackers, any type of potatoes, breads, and ice cream. She is wearing 9-12 month clothes. She seems so little to me, I think this is because Brock was such a big boy! Jaylee loves to dance! When music comes on she bends her knees up and down and shakes her butt. It cracks me up! She loves to cheer at the basketball games and clap her hands when everyone else does. She says mama, dada, bruber (brother), dog, and Mel. She loves to smile and is usually a happy baby. I couldn't resist this picture. She was so tired that she fell asleep while eating cheese stixs!

Jason is back to work now! He has longer days and comes home really tired. We are thankful that he has a job. He is a great Dad and lately he has been a big help around the house! He even helped me fold the laundry Sunday night! He loves his new dog. He built a dog run and a dog house for Remington. He even had to paint and put shingles on it. I was dying at how much work he put into the dog house, but to top it off he wants vinyl on it that says "House of Remington". I seriously thought I was going to die laughing!

I decided to do our taxes this year with my MIL Annette's help. It was rather easy and I am glad that it is over. I was kind of bummed that we had to mail them in instead of e-filing. The reason was because we took the first time home buyer credit. We had to send in paperwork from the house to prove this. I guess I can't complain too much about mailing it, because if it is going to get us an extra $8,000 back then it is worth it! I have also been trying to keep the house clean and crafting, imagine that! I keep telling my family and friends that I need to check into craftaholics anonymous. I have a serious problem, but at least I can admit it. That is the first step when you have an addiction is to admit the problem. That is as far as it will probably go! I am counting the days down to spring break. I want the cold to go away!
