New Year Resolutions

Behold my glorious wheat bread!!

Resolution #1
Part of my New Years resolution is to eat healthier. My initial thought was to ban all refined sugar and processed foods... ya, that thought lasted about five minutes. So as a compromise I'm just going to make a resolution to make more foods from scratch. It's at least one step in the right direction. By the way, yes it was super tasty!

Resolution #2
To keep with tradition I will make resolution to read at least one book a month and at least one classic through out the year. (I'm sure this is humorous to Billie... not all of us are super-mutant readers, gosh!) I have surpassed this goal for the last four years so here is to number five! Cheers!

Resolution #3
Never say "I can't wait until..." For example:
I can't wait until Matt is done with residency
... for Oliver to be sleep through the night
... to get a dishwasher
I want to enjoy all of the little nuances life has to offer and to look at Oliver every morning and say today is going to be a great day. It is so easy to live in the future instead of the now. But I will try to remember that the best present you can give your child is to be present.

Happy New Year!

St. Lukes Christmas Party

Party at Dr. Nichols house
I really wouldn't call it a house... more an estate or something. The place had a basketball court... inside! It was so awesome!

Matt and Brad playing pool

The Snuggie and Twilight magazine white elephant gift were the hit of the night! Who would have thought so many doctors would be Twi-hards?

Oliver got the Greenbay hat and shotglass. Way to take one for the team buddy!

So tired on the drive home. By the way, can you tell I picked his car seat out to match his eyes? I'm such a sucker.

My big boy!

For those who care to know... Oliver is 10 months now and officially off the boob. It was a combination of me eating curry (which he hated) and him now having 4 teeth (which I hated... Ouch!)

Seeing Amy's blog about Aria's check up reminded me that I forgot to update everyone on Oliver's 9 month check up. Sorry it's a little late!

Weight 18lb 11oz (25th %)
Height 28.75 inches (75th %)
Head cir. 46c (75th %)

Now you are in the know!

From gloom to awesome room!

I took on the task of giving my Laundry room a face lift before I realized exactly what that would entail. (Several gallons of paint, rubber boots and acid to etch the cement, primer for metal pipes, power sprayer to paint the exposed beams and a LOT of nasty cleaning of 60 year old spider webs and newspaper wrapped pipes) Not to mention Matt was not about to get involved in another home project, not that I blame him! I must say it was all worth it. This room started out 5 shades of ugly and now it is a nice little washroom haven!


Thank you power sprayer! With out you this would have taken an eternity!


The ID license plate made all the difference!

Not sure what the little patch of yellow was all about




Another random color... Hunter green?

Are you sick of all this cuteness yet?

I was going to rake my leaves today but I was distracted by Oliver's cuteness so I decided to pile the leaves up instead and take pictures. Maybe I'll get it done tomorrow.

Day at the park

I thought this was beautiful. (post Photoshop)

Today Matt and I met our friend Jenna and her son Drake at the park in Elm Grove. It was 65 out so we took advantage of it. It won't be long before we will be buried in snow and ice. Go Wisconsin!

Got your nose!
