Finally, another blog entry. I just read KP's Awaiting Further Instructions and realized its been a really long time since I've blogged as well. Blogging hasn't been on the top priority list lately. I've tried to get Leslie to start blogging, unsuccessfully as you can see. I just don't feel I'm that good at it so I guess she takes after me because she feels that same way. I read other blogs and it seems the words just seem to flow for them. Not so much for me so I think maybe I should just stick to pictures.
So far this winter we have just been hibernating and staying warm since it's been really cold lately. I've been enjoying cooking, baking and spending time with my family. We do attend Bradley's ballgames and I go watch Leslie cheer some. I'm thankful for my friend KP that drags me out of the house now and then, especially when its for Chinese!! Really soon Eddie and I are going to have a date night... Red Lobster and a movie. I can't wait.
Nick's in his second semester of college and having fun traveling to Snowshoe to snowboard. Jake is still working some doing artist work etc. for a local artist and also loves traveling to Snowshoe to snowboard. Leslie hangs out with my neice Jessie, lives on the computer on facebook and myspace, and cheers at basketball games. She will be starting to train for softball real soon. Bradley is playing basketball for the middle school, so that takes up most of his life right now with practice and games.
Maylea once again keeps up laughing and having fun. She's just a joy with her jabbering, imitating everyone and dancing. That girl is full of personality. Leslie constantly amazes me at being a little mother with her. She still loves to bathe, dress her and takes care of her any time I need her to, except when there is a poopy diaper involved. Nick and Jake just light up, crack up and love watching her and Bradley plays well with her "most" of the time but is a normal 13 year old that loves to be a pest.
I'll leave you with a few picture of what Yo Gabba Gabba is doing to Maylea. She loves to make funny faces like they do. Yo Gabba Gabba is a kids show on Nickelodeon for those of you that don't know. Leslie took these with my tele-photo lens and it's not too good for close ups so they are a little blurry... but still cute.
