Junk Mail Buddies

Ben finally has a junk mail buddy. Dique enjoyed going through the junk mail with Ben the other night.

Almost Sitting

Dique has been working very hard on sitting up by himself. Within the next month I can see him sitting by himself. Here he is sitting on my rocker. Such a cute little man!


I noticed Cyndi putting all the groceries on top of herself while shopping one week. When I asked why she was doing that, she told me that she was cold.
Crazy kiddo!


I made turkey's with Cyndi this year. She loved it!

Bug Clips

I made some more ribbon hair clips.

Pink Lady Bug:

Standing Butterfly:


Cyndi can do some very funny and creative things sometimes. The other day she turned the car on its front side and 'drove' baby around the house. Sadly I had to put stop to it when she tried to turn it into a slide.

Di-Ka-Leaky Randoms

Ben and I are starting to laugh about Dique and his fingers. We think that babies should come with a warning label: "Warning: Choking Hazard"

I was reading "What to expect the first year" the other night and it said that the 4 month old might protest if a toy was taken away. I decided to test it out. I gave Dique his dino and then gently took it from him. He did not complain. I let him play with it for a little bit and then gently took it away again. Still he did not complain. We did this a few times until he rolled on his side, pushed with his legs and clung onto dino with his back turned. Such a cute little monkey.

I love this face!

Fancy Pancakes

I made Ben pancakes the other day and thought I would have some fun with it. Cyndi sure enjoyed it, I think Ben did as well.

Cinnamon Swirl

Cyndi made this one

Crinkly Toy Part 2

I was not completely happy with the first crinkle toy I made (here), so I made another one. And Dique LOVES it.

Saturday Work

At the beginning of the month I had to work custodial. They had not taken me off the weekend rotation yet. Luckily I am off now, no I don't have to worry about it any more. It was snowing and I was assigned to collect trash on Temple Square. I went around with the lead in the cart. It was great fun. I enjoyed the way Temple Square looked all covered in white.

This is by the corner restrooms and the Assembly Hall near the South-West corner

A sister missionary was enjoying the snow a little to much. She made a snowman and snowwoman on top of the trash cans. We decided to leave the trash cans and not disturb the snow 'couple'

Fun Game

Dique and I play a game on a daily bases. He sits in his rocker chair and kicks his blanket off. I attempt to give him a funny scowl. He smiles and giggles sweetly and I laugh at him. Then I put the blanket back on him. Then he starts again. If he kicks the blanket off and I don't respond quick enough he starts calling me. He is such an adorable attention seeker!

Bag Fascination

One night Dique was rather fascinated with the bag of corn chips. I how it looks at the bag and tries to grab it.


Back in the middle of October we gave some Jello to the cutest little man in the world! I had to get it on video. I think that it is just darling!

Bumble Bee

My new creative outlet is ribbon. I really enjoy making little ribbon creatures for Cyndi to wear.

Snow Witch Cupcakes

I made some cup cakes for Halloween. The icing did not turn out the way I wanted it to, but the idea still looked rather cute, I think!
