I got Maggie's sand and water table put together this weekend and she loved it . She is splashing in this on monday when I put it together.

She is gazing intently at something not sure what but I thought the picture was a cute one.
This next picture is of our moocher Lizzie anytime Christina is out in the yard not even near the garden Lizzie is down at the garden begging for lettuce. The dog is crazy and loves that stuff if we had a garden we wouldn't have to worry about rabbits just lizzie's

Tons O' Pics

Here is the comparision picture Brian just happens to be in the same shirt. Just thought I would share and the difference 9 moths makes in a baby holy cow Maggie is a Big girl boo...hoo!!

This is a picture from Dinner the oppurtunities for family pictures are few and far between but you take what you can get. It just so happens that the person that took this picture for us knew John( surprise , surprise ...these McGuire's know everyone) he was from Towers (fire department suppliers).

These are the same picture just a different finish. I think I might frame it(B&W) for the bathroom.

Ok today I was playing with my camera when I got the chance and snapped some pictures of my gerbera daisy...must be the week for flowers. It is also Tim's Birthday today so I have pics from dinner. I also am going to post an old and new picture of our family. To compare the difference in my husband from 9 months. Just thought it would be interesting.

A Hot Day for a Ballgame

Yesturday we went to the Cardinals Game it was so darn hot. We sat in the sun for a little while and then Tim moved us to his section which was awesome the seats were out of the rain for the rain delay we had. It was nice but we left early a baseball game with kids that are mobile is a pain in the hiney. Brian took Maggie up to see Grandma and I stayed in the seats we weren't on the best of terms at that point. It was just miserable. Hope everyone had a fun weekend.

Today was a busy day Maggie and I went to Sam's at 8 to get supplies for the office and some groceries. We then took the groceries home and the supplies to work. We then went to the park in Shiloh which was crowded for 10.30am but we hung out for about 15 or so minutes then it was off the McDonald's for lunch and then home for a short nap before her Dr's visit. She now weighs 22 lbs 14 oz and is 30 1/4 inches which is a growth spurt for her. The Dr agrees she is gaining well which is good and also said her 2 year molars are creeping in which we already had an idea as she has been putting everything in her mouth and having bouts with drooling. But all in all it was a great visit she loves her doctor and goes straight to her when she come sin the room it is too cute. She did get three shots today and cries huge tears, but it was soon forgotten when she noticed the band-aids. She kept trying to pull them off when she could see them sticking out of her shorts. After her Dr's visit we drove to T.J Maxx to see if we could find a sprinkler with no luck. Then we went to K Mart and I found one there but couldn't get it on the hose so we didn't play outside. Then Maggie and I took another nap in her chair in her room I didn't mean to fall asleep but I guess I needed it. Oh I did finally get to finish my Christmas present book today from Julie it was a great read, thanks Julie! I cried my eyes out at the end. Gotta love those dogs makes me want to lay on the floor with Lizzie!!! By the way it is "Marley and Me" if you want to borrow it feel free it is great !

She loves to blow kisses lately glad I got it on film , so to speak!!

Her fingers got stuck in the two draws and snapped a picture before I realized what she had done oops!!

I found Maggie in the bowl after I couldn't hear her for a minute!!Just had to capture it!

Yesterday we celebrated Mother's Day with my Mom as she was in Chicago last weekend. We drove out to Carlyle (Larry's Shack so it is named) and had a great time and Maggie even went for her first boat ride ...let me tell you I was less nervous than being on the plane this year but it was a close second. I learned how to make asparagus on the grill it is awesome. We will definitely be eating more of it at home now that is it an easy side to make on the grill. Most of my mom's siblings were there and it was a nice relaxing visit compared to the hustle and bustle of Friday and Saturday. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Oh I would have had pictures on the water but I was told that if my camera fell in the water I wouldn't be getting another...I wasn't taking any chances.

Mother's Day Pictures

Mommy and Maggie on Mother's Day glad Daddy got a picture of us.

Maggie on the slide out at the barn she had a blast on the swing set and was climbing the ladder herself which surprised both Brian and I .

Just thought this one was cute of her sucking on her bink which will hopefully soon be going to the bink fairies. I think we are going to try cutting it but I have to convince Brian it is a good thing.

My poor baby's cold is now interfering with her being able to breath with her mouth closed. She was watching TV tonight while I ran downstairs to get laundry , so she doesn't stand at the gate and yell at me, and I just had to take this when I got back up, again it was the letter factory.
Today was a decent day I went to the allergist and low and behold I am allergic to the protein in chicken and turkey and he prescribed an epipen for me just in case I would accidentially ingest some one day, I have gone this long without it though,doubt I will need it but better to be safe!
It has been crazy at work and my attitude lately has shone it sorry if I have been a pain to anyone, I know my husband is getting tired of it, but he understands for the most part.
Oh Brian got us a joint Mother's/Father's Day gift a recumbent bike love it...I can sit on my behind and work out. Last night I was on it for 40 minutes before I realized it, it felt great and I won't feel like i have to watch out for Maggie since nothing goes past the frame of the bike like our elliptical machine does.
Well I am off to put away more laundry and make Brian's lunch then to bed woohoo I am so ready for bed tonight, I feel like a Mack Truck hit me . Goodnight

Happy 93rd Birthday Grandma!!!

Well today was my Grandma Lola's 93rd Birthday, and boy did we have a celebration. Her birthday wish was to ride a horse and she did as you can plainly see. She had a good time and went once around the large outdoor arena, that was enough for her. She is talking about wanting to gallop now, I think we have created a monster. She wanted Maggie on with her so they did that but they only walked a couple of feet I don't think Grandma could get a very good hold and think Maggie was safe too. Maggie loved the horses and ducks and chickens that girl wanted the darn chickens all the time. She also walked over to the rabbit aage and stuck her finger in little did she know the rabbit thought she was food and nibbled a bit nothing hard she was just puzzled. She wanted to run run run everywhere and I got a heck of a workout chasing her everywhere. All in all it was a nice visit and fun for everyone. Also would like to wish Kent and the new arrival Carter Schnarre a very happy birthday today too.

Another busy and dirty day. We went to breakfast at Panorama with the Laquet Family since Tony and Sue's Families were in town was really great to visit with everyone this weekend. Then we went to grandmam Linda's house and Maggie Pooped out so Brian and I got an afternoon to ourselves. (Thanks Linda!!) We went to Target, Frieze and Kohl's. Then we made plans with the Tell's and Davis' to get some dinner at Outback(the service was crappy at the end and the food wasn't all that good either). Probably won't be going back there anytime soon. Maggie and I came home and she got a bath which is where these pictures are from if you couldn't tell. I was just snapping away and she actually looked at me several times which was a nice alternative. In the first picturer she has her water thermometer in her mouth. The second picture she is grabbing her soap in the corner of the tub. She loves to stand up in the tub and scare the heebby geebies out of mommy but she is pretty sturdy and listens for the most part while in the tub I think she hears the fear in my voice. Anyway hope everyone had great weekend.

Today was a busy day. We got up early as ususal although Maggie didn't wake up until 7:15 that was sleeping in. We went to the hall to decorate for Aunt Nancy's Party then we came home ate some lunch and Maggie took a nap. Later in the afternoon we got ready for the party and then Marisa came over so her Mommy and Daddy could go to a party at Cutter's. Maggie and Marisa had fun but Maggie was very tired from the party so she went to bed at about 8. This picture is from when Marisa was a bit fussy from laying on the floor so Maggie I guess thought she needed a hug. Thought it was cute and glad I had my camera handy.

But I just kept taking his picture finally I think he knew what the rich and famous feel like , he was done but just kept smiling.

New Hair Cut

Well I got a new hair cut and decided to take a picture my first attempt at a self portrait. Not good lighting at all but you get the gist of it. Loving the haircut so far but haven't had to fix it myself yet. Hopefully that will go alright, tomorrow.
