No one fear, Ammon is here!

Ok, so Jess said that I never post and so she laid claim to our blog. I thought I would post and reclaim my part. :-)
I thought I would start off my posts with a joke. I hear starting out with a joke is the way to go. If you know me at all, you know that I like intellectual discussions so I found a joke that would incorporate the two.

With that I would like to share a quote with you:

"both warming and cooling occurred numerous times before the Industrial Revolution. Similarly, all the dire predictions of global-warming consequences - sea-level rise, for example - have happened in the past. In fact, the greatest warming period was when dinosaurs walked the land (about 70 million to 130 million years ago). There was then five to 10 times as much CO2 in the atmosphere as there is today, and the average temperature was 4-11 degrees Celsius warmer. Those conditions should have been very helpful to life, since they permitted those immense creatures to find an abundance of food and they survived. "

I would love to have someone try and prove the whole "global warming" thing to me. Just a warning though, make sure you know what you are talking about before you start talking.

My Little Monkey

Has anyone seen Curious George, the movie? It's really adorable. I let Noah watch it one time and now it is his absolute favorite movie. It holds his attention for a long time! He would watch it over and over if I would let him He laughs and watches so intently. He likes it best if I watch it with him but I can only stand so much George. I was happy when he chose this movie to be his favorite because I thought I could never get tired of it. I still like it but, it's beginning to get a little old.

This is his favorite part of the movie. George is in Ms. Plushbottom's apartment having fun with paint and popping bubbles. He laughs every time.

These are 2 separate days. This bottom picture cracks me up. He's just chillin. Holding on to my hoodie and chillin. If you haven't seen it, I would definitely recommend it. It makes me smile. Ü

Christmas Card

The front of our Christmas card this year.


The past four days have been rough days for napping. I don't know what happened but Noah refuses to nap. He used to go with absolutely no problem at all. No protesting or anything. Lately, he screams and screams until I give in and let him get back up. I've put him down probably 6 times per day trying to get him to nap because he's so sleepy, rubbing his face on everything. I let him scream for 30 minutes straight and he didn't let up at all. Poor kid. Anyway, I plopped him on this chair after getting him out of his crib. Curious George was almost over and I went to sit at the computer. I look over 5 minutes later and this is what I saw. My little man actually fell asleep! This guy has never done this. And he didn't wake up when I took a picture. (that's amazing) And I got him to his bed without him protesting! Victory! I'm really hoping that things will be back to normal tomorrow.

A Night Out

We had a fun night tonight. Will and Ginger came over and we drove down to Clemmons (45 minute drive) and ate at the cracker barrel. I had their chicken 'n dumplings and they were so yummy! Noah really enjoyed dinner and made us all laugh with his methodical play. This kid seriously wants everything a certain way. He moved all the silverware to one side of the table, all in a row, and then moved it all to the other side the same way. He did that a few times and then he moved on to one of those triangle peg games, you know what I'm talking about, the ones that you have to keep jumping pegs to only have one peg left. Anyway, he would take them all out and lay them the same way. And if Pap would stand one up, Noah would put it right back down on its' side. He does things like this at home too. It is his favorite way to play and learn. Anyway, after dinner we went to the Tanglewood Festival of Lights. It was so neat! We drove through this huge park to look at the amazing light display they had set up. Noah enjoyed sitting up front with Ammon and I. He helped Ammon shift, steer, turn the brights on, the windshield wipers on and even honk the horn. He sure was a good helper! He really enjoyed it. We were listening to the Appalachian State game on the radio and at halftime, I believe the score was 21 to 7! I'm not sure how the game turned out though... Back to the lights, they had so many different displays it was really quite amazing. I think my favorite display was 2 elves lighting fireworks and then seeing all the different fireworks go off. Pretty cool. Noah was such a good boy. We got home 2 1/2 hours after his bedtime and even though he was exhausted, he was such a good sport. I was really proud of him. Thanks Gigi and Pap for a fun night!

The Owl and the Astronaut

I feel like I haven't been blogging much lately. I want to but nothing really interesting is going on here. Unless, of course, you want to hear about our bathtub not draining, our dishwasher leaking or Noah being so sick with rsv...

I was going through some old pictures and came across these that were taken in October. Ammon and I got a family membership to Sciworks which is a Science Museum in Winston-Salem. Ammon used to go there all the time as a kid and they have all sorts of cool science exhibits. They even have a planetarium! Noah really enjoyed it and we want to go back soon. Maybe once he starts feeling better we can go. And if any of you come to visit, you can come too!
