the lack thereof

I know, I have been lacking in the blogging area part of my life. It's funny though, I will go throughout my day and think "oh, that would be good/awesome to blog about"....and never blog about it. Ugh...I'm in front of a computer all day long at work, that is the last thing I want to come home and there is a wonderful boy in my life as of late.

Something I thought I would share is the different types of, well...animals? insects? we have at our house.I stole this one from Alyssa, she came home one night to this sitting by the garage door opener...YIKES!!

These aren't "unusual" around our house, but it's just fun when you do see them because they're HUGE...and ugly. My mom was watering her flowers one night and he was just hanging out by our swing.

Jake and I were walking up to the front door and I saw this little creature...the bat. *shiver*
He was just hangin out. We took pictures with flashes and watched him for awhile--it didn't even seem to phase him. Yuck, yuck, yuck!!

We get the rattle snakes, black widows, and those nasty huge wolf spiders, but I guess that is what you get for living so close to the mountain. You may remember my story about the snail on my I am use the noises they make and it happens a few times a WEEK. I still truly hate snails...actually, all bugs and insects.

2009 FSA Conference 8/1/09

This years conference (Families Supporting Adoption) was great! Interacting with adoption advocates is always fun, but the best thing is being with Jared, Amanda and Max! Max has grown up so much, it's insane! He is the smiliest, happiest boy and this kid doesn't walk... he RUNS. Making him giggle is the best...he has thee cutest giggle! I love it. I could just eat him up!! It was the best time ever.
I cannot wait to see my Peanut again! I'm sure he will have changed again in that short amount of time. I treasure each moment I get to spend with him and love him so dearly. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of Max and see his cute smile and bright eyes in pictures or mind. Oh I love that boy.
