I love Dillon so much! He just brings a smile to my face thinking of all the silly things he does or comes up with. Dillon has ALWAYS been a very unique little boy, always. His latest and greatest is he is “collecting” his teeth. When he lost his first tooth, he hesitantly put it under his pillow and got money. I thought he would be very happy with the money and get the “hang” of things……. Buuuutt NO. He has since lost two teeth and has very firmly requested to keep them. He’s not scared of the tooth fairy or anything; he just wants to keep them?!? I’m not sure what he plans on doing with them, and I have told him that after a month I was going to MAKE him throw them away (ewww, gross!) but for the time being, he just wants to keep them? I sure do love you Dillon, weird things and all.
Lowe’s has these darling “learn and grow” projects they offer for free on Saturday mornings. We have made Santa’s sleigh, a dinosaur, and a Valentine’s Day card box. The boys really enjoy these, and I think they are so cute. It’s just hard when we have basketball every Saturday as well, so I have been just picking the ones I know they “really” want to do. Here is an over load of pictures from our projects. Santa’s sleigh Dinosaur Valentine’s Day box
I have to brag for a minute and tell you how lucky I am to be loved. I talk about my darling little boys all the time, but I rarely mention my handsome big boy! He is just about the best thing for me, and I am so lucky have him in my life. If you are jealous already, you may want to stop here, if not, I have a story to share about how sweet he really is. A couple of weekends ago I went on a girl’s trip to Las Vegas. He never once said “I couldn’t go” and did everything in his power to make sure I had a good time! I knew my kids were in good hands, and I love the fact that I never even have to question if they are going to be taken care of. I got back on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning I woke up and couldn’t move. My back went out, and again without hesitation he stayed home again to take care of the boys, house, and me this time. I felt SO bad that I had just taken a weekend “off” and here I was again down for the count. I just lay in bed all day, and sat on the couch while he waited on me hand and foot. He did laundry, and even cooked for us. Later that night he took both boys to basketball practice while I sat holding the couch down. The next day he had to go to work, but called me all day long to check in on me. On his way home he grabbed us some dinner, cleaned it all up, scrubbed kids, put them to bed, and then did all sorts of chores for me. For the rest of the week and into the weekend all he did was take care of everything. Bent over and put things away, or grabbed things for me, gave kids baths, washed dishes, changed all diapers, carried things up and down stairs for me and much much more. I never once got a complaint, only willingness to help me out any way he could. This was only a week of things he did for me (it was a pretty crazy week) but he does things for me ALL the time to let me know he cares. I could go on and on, but I just wanted to let everybody and anybody know that on this sappy day of love that I am very much in love, and am very lucky to be loved!
Dillon lost tooth #2! It has been hanging by a thread for about a week before it came out. I was on my way to the airport for a girl’s trip when Dillon pulled it out! The night before I left, I told him I would be so sad if he lost his tooth when I was gone, so he and I were both happy I didn’t miss it. My baby is growing up so fast!!!
I forgot to mention this way back when, but Dillon is playing basketball. He actually started in December, and we have practice twice a week, and games every Saturday. He is getting better and better, and I'm just so proud of my little man! The pictures suck, but I keep forgetting to take my camera to get better ones. He is #11
Chris and I were married September 7th 2000. Our greatest accomplishments are our pride and joy Dillon and Carson. Dillon was born March 14th 2005, and Carson June 16th 2009. Chris spends his day’s busy working to support our family, with School at night. My days are filled with lots of playing, keeping the peace, snuggles, keeping both my little men out of too much trouble, an endless amount of cleaning, shopping for great deals, laundry, and cooking. As busy as our lives can get, we couldn't be happier!
