Christmas time is here!

It has been pretty crazy around here lately. We've had several sicknesses come through this house, making the busyness of thanksgiving week even crazier. Luckily, we were pretty much all feeling good for thanksgiving. Jeremy was a bit run down, but his cold waited to really hit until the day after. Poor guy, we didn't realize how sick he was getting in the morning, while we were running around doing shopping. We dropped him off at Justin's parents' house in the afternoon, so we could do some toy shopping, and apparently he just sat on the couch and watched the Lion King, super lethargic. We got him home, and discovered he had a little fever. Poor guy.

Today he's still been fairly sick, but he has enjoyed watching me put up Christmas decorations. He helped put ornaments on the tree, and had a blast. His ornament for this year is a storm trooper, and he had so much fun playing with it while we fluffed the tree branches. My favorite part was when he laid the storm trooper in a sleigh ornament and told me he was sleeping. I just love his imagination.

He has been getting more and more talkative, which has been fun. We were driving the other day to go to a store. As we turned off our street, he said the store was that way. Being silly, I said, "No its not! No stores this way!" He responded "Yes the store's this way. Mom, you're crazy!" He's right. I am. :)

Hopefully pretty soon we'll all be feeling better. At least Jeremy is still funny, even when he doesn't feel well. I just hope this cold of his is the last sickness we get this winter. I'm ready to really enjoy Christmas time!

Hello, world!

It's been over a year since I've blogged. Wow. This last year has been eventful, too!

Let's see, in December and January, we moved back to AZ. Most of the people who read this already knew that, but now it's on my blog, too. :) We bought a house, exactly 6 minutes from both my and Justin's parents. Jeremy loves being close to cousins. He is always asking to go visit Henry's house, or Samuel's house, or Abbie's house.

He's almost 3 now, which is just crazy! He had a blast at Halloween. He's starting to really get holidays. He dressed up as Mickey Mouse, I was Minnie, and Justin was Goofy. I put everything together myself, and was quite pleased with how they turned out! I even made the ear headbands and goofy hat myself!

He has a lot of different interests, but his biggest is, unfortunately, tv. He's obsessed. I try to limit it, but I'm not always the best. He loves Mickey and Star Wars the most. Star Wars kind of surprised me. He's still so young! But he pretends to be a storm trooper or Darth Vader and shoot the bad robots. He doesn't seem to quite grasp that Darth Vader is a bad guy.

He also has a knack for turning anything into a play gun. The best was when he grabbed my hot pink high heels. He was "pewing", then told me that he was actually shooting pie, with his pie gun. He shot it directly into my mouth. Too bad it doesn't really shoot pie!

He is also very energetic. He loves taking Lacie, our dog, on walks. He loves running into the couch from across the room. He loves running in circles, especially if there is something to run around. Even if it's just a shoe on the ground, he will run endless laps around that shoe!

I'm going to try to post more updates regularly (we'll see how that goes), and I'll include more about me and Justin in the next one. Right now though, it's Jeremy's nap time, and I'm tired too. :)

Look! A bunch of random pictures!
