D Family Summer Vacation

Hello all!  D Family is still here but we've been taking our version of a short summer vacation.  We have an exciting weekend planned this coming weekend and I know I will have to share! I hope everyone is having a great summer.  It's flying by isn't it?  And from the majority of the pictures I have taken of Noah recently you would think all he's doing this summer is eating.  

He seems to enjoy yelling and making socially acceptable farting noises at his food.  This is him caught in the act.

Christmas in July Giveaway!

First I want to thank everyone for the kind words yesterday. Andy loved my hair which surprised me because he usually doesn't like bangs.  But last night as we were watching our current favorite addiction  show "LOST", he couldn't stop playing with them lol. 

Anywho... I'm very excited to share this fantastic giveaway by my friend Step over at Front Porch Primitives.  If you are anything like me then Christmas time is your absolute favorite time of the year and you love to celebrate it more than once a year.  Or maybe you just love all of the decorations that come with that time of year.  If you like anything to do with Christmas, then you will LOVE this giveaway!  In celebration of her first year blogging, she's having a Blogiversary Giveaway with these great items she's handmade! 

For a chance at these great works of love, check out her giveaway here!

I Finally Did It!

Sorry for the awkward myspace/facebook self portrait pose.  It's the only way to get a self picture without asking co workers to take one for me.  I finally decided to get the first time mommy hair cut.  This is the shortest I have ever had my hair in my entire life.  It feels so much better!  Noah will still be able to grab it.  However, he shouldn't be able to have it wrapped around his fingers, hands, toes, and feet anymore.  You wouldn't believe where I have found strands of my hair.  It literally is a huge weight off my shoulders.

Hopefully Andy will like it!

Noah's 1st 4th

Hello all! First I want to say that I hope everyone had a great 4th.  Starting Thursday and through Friday, Noah looked like he belonged on the exorcist.  His poor belly :(.  Andy got the bug on Monday and it hit me yesterday.  However, even though D family has been fighting through a case of the yucky tummies, we had a pretty great 4th. 

We went to a parade early in the day.  Surprisingly Noah didn't mind the loud band drums, fire trucks, or the huge cannon that was shot in front of us.  I must admit, it startled me pretty good but as soon as it was shot, Noah quickly turned his head towards it and gave a big grin.  I think this is a hint that he's going to enjoy those really loud toys.  Especially since his new favorite thing to do is to hit everything in order to make a sound; the louder the better!

He also spent some time with his cousin.  I swear they will be like brother and sister, especially since they are only 3 1/2 months apart.

This was right before he yanked these off.

Later on we went to Andy's aunt's camp on the lake and relaxed while a HUGE storm came through.  I LOVE watching storms.

I think the best part of the last 5 days was the amount of time I got to spend with my family.  It may have been a week full of yucky tummies and messes, but any amount of time with my family is appreciated!
