Playing

Here are some pictures of Preston playing…and me too. I just followed him around for awhile one day and so I thought I’d share. He is so good at entertaining himself…and that is such a lovely thing most days! I often find him doing things he isn’t supposed to be doing when I think he’s playing nicely but at least I got the kitchen cleaned up or dinner cooked, right? I can always pull the entire, unrolled toilet paper out of the toilet with a plastic bag. He hasn’t done anything too disastrous yet…but I’m sure that’s coming.

Helping me test out my new IKEA fabric.

The only time I can seem to get a fun, cute smile on camera is when Preston’s looking in the mirror…

And lots of playing.

The other day I was playing around with a new lens and it all started with this:

Shaun attempting to kill a fly with a towel. We thought it was neat, the movement…

So we started playing. And we probably would have only done it once except for every time the camera beeped and went off Preston let out his fake, forced laugh* and would say “do it again!” So we took lots.

*Laugh can be seen in video below…

A few notes about this video and Preston.

He did this EVERY time he wound that thing.

He’d say, “It’s comin’!” Then fake laugh, then say, “Das funny”

And he always talks in weird voices. Trying to be funny. And I think he is.

Happy Birthday Lover!

Happy Birthday to my handsome husband! He’s amazing. We met outside Mr. Gough’s art history class and life has never been the same…in a good way! I hope you have a great day. LOVE YOU!

(we took this picture a few months ago for a friend’s birthday…so the mustache is gone and no need to wonder why he is wishing himself a happy birthday!!)

Happy Labor Day…again.

For Labor day I was able to pry Shaun away from the books and take a quick break up at Lake Clementine. It doesn’t necessarily look like a lake, seeing as how it is probably less than 20 yards across and it has a slight current in some areas (That’s my definition of a creek…) However, that’s the name. A lovely little place it is though! Clear water, not super crowded, lots of rocks for Preston to throw (Half the time in the water, the other half trying to peg other people…Half MY seemed to be spent trying to snag the large rocks he had aimed at other kids!) We all had a lot of fun! Very relaxing. We should do it again sometime.

I was feeling a little daring…jumping off a 5 foot rock.

Happy Labor Day

10:15 pm by Janelle. Filed under: News

Hope you ar all having a great labor Day weekend. We haven’t done a whole lot…I went garage saling on Saturday, kind of a waste of life this time. Nothing good. I love garage sales, but when you drive all over town and use up several of your Saturday hours to find nothing…what a let down! Oh well!

I have been trying to find fun things to do with Preston in the little community we live in…though it seems I have these grand ideas and they never quite go as I planned. I brought out the bocce balls, which Preston LOVES to throw out the garage every time I open it…then they roll down the street and I have to go chasing after them. We took them out to the grass so he could actually play with them where he wouldn’t break anything. Wasn’t interested. He wanted to chase the cats and throw things at them or play in the spider infested rocks…

I have been playing around with camera settings which means lots of Preston pictures…though not all great pictures (on my part…Preston looks cute in most!) Here are a few of him eating one of his favorites, “poppa-sicles.”

And then I was trying some with a white backdrop. Most of them not cute…but here are two I thought were cute. Probably just because I am his mom…and I love his feet and his cute little face.

Sorry I don’t post more! I have just been using my camera so much that I don’t feel like getting it out if I don’t have to sometimes! Terrible huh? Then I never feel like posting if I don’t have any photos…that’s all I ever look at on other people’s blogs…terrible again.

Kelsey, I’ll post another video soon…so you can stop watching “Screeck Rat” over and over :)

Love you all.

Happy Weekend.
