Our week...

 The weather in Sacramento lately has been uncharacteristically warm... and you'll hear no complaints from any of us!  Tonight the boys decided it would be a good idea to eat outside... which always prompts Zachary into peeing outside as well.  

 Instead of napping, Zachary decided he'd rather paint... and I got "the look" after I told him to stop painting his hands and focus more on painting the paper.  Stupid mommy.
 ... and he's distracted by Peppa Pig- a brief moment of smiles.

This boy was insanely tired... and by insanely tired I mean he was acting like an exorcism would have been more appropriate than a nap.  But I was willing to try the nap before calling the local exorcist.  I'm glad I held off on my phone call because after 3.5 hours of sleep he woke up back to "normal" (whatever that means).

While Deacon slept Zachary took a break from his painting to have a dance party.

iPhone catch-up

So in the past 2 months I have been taking SO many pictures with my iPhone... I feel badly I haven't used my wonderful camera, but I'm glad I at least was smart enough to use some sort of picture taking device during my time off.

So hunker down... I narrowed it down to my favorite 26 ;-)

This is how I found Zachary one day after nap... he went to bed with footie pj's on.

Zachary was waiting for Ed.

A few hours after my surgery... both boys were super needy

"winter mintestrone" - the best soup I've made in a long time

This picture is for my mom...

 I went to Carden to work on the class project for the crab feed

Upset baby boy

A typical way to spend Sunday morning with Zachary

I was trying out my new rollers and Zac was jealous... so Damien helped him out a bit while he brushed his teeth.

My top two dresses for the crab feed... I ended up wearing the blue one (the gold one was my favorite, but it was SO itchy and hot that I knew I wouldn't survive more than 10 minutes in it)

My new favorite accessory! - my nose RING :) 

Zachary was SO proud of this necklace he made me :)

Happy Presidents Day!

Ed and I took Deacon and Logan to San Francisco today while Damien worked and Zachary spent the day with Ms. Serena.  The day was sorta rough with the two kids- one being a typical 6 year old (crazy and sassy) and the other being sick (and grumpy and sassy to boot)... but with the promise of the jelly belly factory and a new (used) game from Game Stop, we got through the trip without a hitch ;-)

The only time I brought out the camera was at the Golden Gate Bridge... and it was absolutely gorgeous up there today.  Sadly, however, the highlight of this part of the trip was when Logan found a huge banana slug and chased Deacon around with it.  LOL

The unfortunate part about the trip is that Deacon was so sick by the time we got back into town... poor boy :(

Fun with the iMac

Damien went to So Cal on business and to keep the boys occupied I brought out photo booth on the mac this evening... Oh my gosh Zachary thought this was the funniest thing ever.  He seriously was laughing so hard- like total belly laughs.  It was adorable.  We had such a good time with this.
