a little more to add

In my update from the last post, I forgot to add one tiny thing- because it is definitely tiny as right now-

a baby!

I'm due the beginning of April and am just so glad to be out of the first trimester. it was awful and am not sure how many more times i can handle a first trimester. i am currently obsessed with Coleslaw and Apple Juice and can't stand the sight of meats. Poor Scott. We are really excited and we find out the gender of the baby next month! Scott thinks it'll be a girl but i keep dreaming of boys- as long as its one or the other, we'll be happy.

Here's to a warm winter being pregnant and no more bonding time with toilets!

3 month catch up

I have no idea how to get this to stop being underlined so i'm just dealing with it.

I have no particular reason why I have neglected our blogspot for the last three months, it started when I got really sick and then there was so much to catch up on I just kept putting it off. And then I got lazy.

Here are just a few highlights over the last few months

We went to an apple orchard and picked some apples, they had a few animals which Benson loved. This goat wouldnt stop trying to eat his shirt and he thought it was so funny
Instead of a sandbox, they had a cornbox- Benson could of spent all day there
This picture is a little goofy of him but he LOVES LOVES LOVES tractors, big trucks, construction trucks- i would even say he's obsessed because every time we see one he tries to either climb on it, stare at it or scream bloody murder when we leave.

We are now a two car family- yah! i'm so happy to have two cars, it has made life so much easier! It was a great deal with a great price and it gets us to the important places we need to go- like the grocery store, the library, the park and the mall.

Since fall has arrived i got my jump start back into the kitchen- i took a hiatus from the kitchen for some time and am getting back into the swing of things. We've froze raspberries, peaches, and started baking danish pastries, artisan breads, and pies.
To help along in the kitchen, i have my Sous-Chef de Cuisine - Benson. He now has to help me with every meal or anything i make in the kitchen if I want to avoid any tantrums being thrown. He is even willing to help with the dishes...
Another great trait Benson has to contribute to his help in the kitchen is that he can multi-task...He can eat and do dishes at the same time. although he started to intermingle the two by dipping his muffin into the water and then eating it.

We have been enjoying our time in Minnesota and the weather has been good to us( no snow yet!!) We just can't believe how big Benson is getting!

(Scott said he was making a booty call)
(yes, my husband thinks hes funny)
