Guess Where I am Going!

That's right, this Friday morning I am hopping on a plane and heading to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico to the Sandos Playacar Beach Resort! Of course I will not be heading there alone. I am going with my hubby and his brothers and their wives. I am so freakin' exited! The trip is all-inclusive so I fully intend to take complete advantage of that! It is only going to be a short trip, but I will take anything at this point. I am dreading leaving my little boy but I know he will be in good hands, I may bring him back his own little sombrero!

Hunter's First Haircut!

We have been needing to cut Hunter hair for awhile now because the "mop" on top was completely out of control! So as a last minute decision I decided to take him to Judy's to get it done. Well you can imagine how hard it was to keep him still because of his need to sway back and forth. Here are a few pictures of the adventure!
"Come on Mom, what makes you think I need a haircut? All the cool kids at daycare are wearing it this way!"
"Save Me!"

"Damn, I am fine!"

Say what you will...

Say what you will about Obama….

Say what you will about Biden….

And say what you will about the Stimulus Package…

But right now I am grateful for them all!!! Because of the stimulus package, tax credits and federal incentives have been given locally for the creation of a large wind farm in Missouri. By harnessing the power of wind it is making a lasting investment in America’s energy infrastructure.

With all that aside, it has given this wind farm the ability to place large orders for transforms from ABB.

Therefore my husband still has a job!!!

Even though we don’t see much personally from the stimulus package it does eventually trickle down to us all for which I am grateful!

Vice President Joe Biden is in Jefferson City today to get a tour of the ABB plant and to make a speech. Andy got to leave work a noon so that they could clear the plant out and secure it before Biden arrives, and then everyone is welcomed back in. Andy had to be at work this morning at 4am, and when he arrived there were already camera crews there waiting for Biden’s arrival. I am anxious to hear his speech and excited that of all places to go, he is going to my husband’s place of work.

Rock-a-by Baby!

For anyone that has been around Hunter longer than 30 seconds knows his main trait....HE ROCKS BACK AND FORTH (SIDEWAYS) ALL THE TIME!!!!! I kid you not! I don't know what has got him to started doing this, but it has been going on for over a month now. It is really entertaining, but can also be a hassle especially when it comes to holding him or feeding him. Here is some footage of what we got thru when we try to feed him in the evenings!

On Easter morning we got up early before church to find that the Easter Bunny had come. We sat Hunter next to his basket to get some pictures and some video footage and during the mist the of the action we could tell he was in the process of filling his pants. That was all fine and well until we turned him around to find that he had pooped all the way up his back and all over his sleeper. I guess this was my Easter present! Thanks Alot!
After church we went down to Donnie and Shanda's where Hunter received another Easter basket full of candy and toys plus a nursery rhyme book. We then headed to Andy's grandparents for an excellent breakfast feast where we ate entirely too much! We later worked quite a bit of it off while playing a few rounds of Nerts which got pretty wild and violent a few times...but Fun!

Next we went to my grandparents house for more food we didn't need, but still chose to eat. It was great to see everyone again and catch up on things. Hunter finally had hit a brick wall and was sooo tired. I will admit I was exhausted as well. So we went home a took a much needed nap!

Since Lent was over I didn't hesitate one bit drinking a Mountain Dew and eating Bakery Cake. I could tell my belly was not use to the extreme sugar, but it didn't slow me down.

I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

Hunter Loves Chicks!

Mom and Tim raise chicks to butcher and they just got in over 200 of them this past week. So we went over there for a vistit after the Easter Egg Hunt. He didn't quite know what to think, but he seemed to enjoy them even if it meant squeezing them around the neck.

Easter Egg Hunt!

We had an Easter Egg Hunt at the bank on Saturday and Hunter got his first taste of the action. He was extremely tired so there weren't many good photo opportunities. Here are a couple of the pictures we took!

Weekend Recap

Friday evening I worked the Drive-up late with Tina. After returning home, Hunter and I went on a walk/run with Kelly before we headed down to Donnie and Shanda’s for another fish fry.

Saturday I had to work once again and since Andy decided to go fishing, Shanda got the pleasure of watching Hunter for the morning. After work I met up with them at a family baby shower. Steve and Amanda are the expectant parents of a baby boy due in July. They had a great baby shower and got everything they could have possibly asked for. By the time Andy got home for the evening it was already getting late, so we decided to stay home.

Sunday we got up early to go to 7:15am mass in Argyle. Afterwards, Andy headed to the VFW Hall for work the Spring Social. He later on brought home take-out dinners for the both of us. Yum, Fried Chicken!!!! We topped the evening off by watching the ACM awards, which was hosted by the one and only REBA!!!!

Wordless Wednesday!

Hunter the Dinosaur!

I told you a couple weeks ago that I made a trip to Carter’s to buy Hunter some clothes. One of the purchases I made was a green zip-up hooded jacket. It was really cute and on sale. So when I got it home that evening I began to show Andy everything I bought. Well when I pulled the jacket out of the bag I noticed something I didn’t see at the store. On the hood there was green triangles sewn all the way from the forehead to the back of the neck. He looked like a dinosaur! I ended up taking the jacket to Shanda so she could remove the unnecessary triangles. So now it looks like a regular hood. But before it was repaired I had to capture a picture of Hunter wearing it.
No wonder it was on sale!
