Happy 10 months, G!!

Here are some pictures from last weekend when I helped to
watch 3, 5-month old boys...

L-R: Justus, Quentin, Andrew & Geno makes 4!

Andrew doesn't look to sure about this...

Justus, Quentin & Andrew

Tummy Time & Toothless Smiles!! :)

The next day, Geno thought he and Andrew should have
some tummy time without the twins.
Why does Andrew have Geno's tail trapped between his legs? Goober!

Hi Boys!

One night, Geno put himself into the corner to take a little snooze.
Weird dog.

I've been working a good bit this week.
Monday- 2nd grade. Tuesday- 3rd grade. Friday- 2nd grade.
Things are getting busy and I'm getting ready to make
the move down to Shippensburg.
I've already been hired by 2 districts to work as a sub.
I have also been applying for full time positions in the fall.
Let's hope and pray that I get one!!!

weird dog/bad dog

Geno loves to stare out the window and watch what's going on in the neighborhood

Oh hi Mr. Man!!

what a weirdo

a lamp as a pillow?

I left Geno home last night while I went to Allison's to watch a show.

This is what I came home to...

ugh. I'm mad at him

On another note...

I gave blood today at Mary's school. Mom and Anna also went to donate. Mary gets a prize for getting people to donate and give her name. It pays for her to have older siblings. The dumb lady didn't tell me she was "sticking" me with the needle yet and I guess my arm moved a lot. Sooooo she started moving the needle around. It was terrible.

Here is G helping me wrap Dean's v-day present

We were waiting for Dean to get here... he took forever!

G was "helping" to open the gift
(i.e. he was biting the wrapping paper then running under the bed with it)

one of my all time favorites- how can you not fall in love with that face??

potty time!!
Geno has been doing very well going potty outside. We're so proud!

Mary brushing Geno

Too cute. We were watching a show about different dog breeds and they were talking about the Shih Tzu... They said that if you keep your dog in the short "puppy cut" you should have him groomed every 4-6 weeks. When Mary was done brushing him she said to him that he will get his hair brushed again in 4-6 weeks! Ha she's hilarious.

Good luck to my friend Jenny who is having her baby girl tonight or tomorrow!!!!!!

Here is Jenny at her baby shower holding the cake made out of diapers, onsies and binkies!

I'm subbing tomorrow in 2nd grade then on Friday in 3rd grade. Should be fun.

Have a fabulous week!
Valentine's Day is over soooo out with the pink.

Thoughts on this one? I really like it.

Happy Presidents Day!

Happy Wednesday

The weather today was gorgeous! It was probably around 50 or 55. Geno and I went for a nice walk. I also cleaned up the yard because Geno refuses to clean up after himself. He has been a very good boy using the facilities outside though.

Here is a snapshot of G from today.
How in the world could this be comfortable??

Haha poor thing. Sorry.

Tomorrow I am spending the day babysitting an 18 month old all day. Should be fun. Then Friday (and also next Tuesday) I will be in a 2nd grade classroom subbing.

Dean will be in town Friday night and then we are going to Pittsburgh on Saturday to see a play for Valentine's Day. :) We will also be celebrating our 18 month anniversary!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Here are some pictures I found that I wanted to share...

Longgg weekend

This weekend was VERY busy. It started out on Friday. I wasn't called in to substitute so I headed down to Shippensburg early to be there when Dean got off of work. Geno of course came along with me. He loves car rides. We drove down and got there at about 3ish. Baby Andrew was at the house so I played with him until his mommy came to pick him up. Dean and I had a very nice dinner with his dad and step mom. We just relaxed the rest of the evening.

Saturday was an early morning that's for sure. I got up and went to Amanda's at about 7am. We were going to an adventure to State College to look for bridesmaids dresses for Allison's wedding. The wedding date is set for December 19, 2009. We had a lovely breakfast then went on the search. We ending up finding a cute little shop called "Diamonds and Lace." They were wonderful. There we found the perfect dresses and ordered them. They will be black with ivory at the waist. We will also be carrying an ivory shawl.

After shopping for our gowns, we had a little lunch at the Corner Room in State College. We then began our trip home. Dean and I were going on a double date that night with our friend Shelow and his girlfriend, Jess. He met us in Harrisburg so they could drop me off and we could get dinner with Shelow and Jess. After going to Red Lobster and finding out the wait was an hour and a half, we went to the Outback and it was 45 minutes. Finally, we went to Bob Evans. Great dinner with great company and great conversation. Great. Great. Great. The four of us went bowling afterwards which was a ton of fun. We played three games then headed our separate ways. It was a really fun night.

Sunday was SUPERBOWL day!!! We had breakfast with Mike, Amanda, baby Andrew, and friends Justin & Cassie. Yum. We took a trip to the grocery store to get some essentials for our meal. The rest of the day was filled with lounging around and getting ready for the big game. Dean and I made buffalo chicken wings. We also had veggies & chips with dip. His dad and stepmom came over to play with Andrew and to also watch the game. We had a lot of fun and it was an awesome outcome. The Steelers now have 6 Superbowl Championship wins!!!

I spent my morning in Shippensburg today. I worked out with Amanda and Andrew then we ran some errands. I left around 2pm to be back so I could take Mary to ballet-- which is where I am now. It is awesome that I get wireless in the parking lot. :) I just have to go in every 1/2 hour to change her shoes. Geno is out here with me too. We're tired.

I got a call from the "sub-lady" this afternoon and set up some dates. 1/2 day this Wednesday and a full day on Thursday.

Here are some pictures from this weekend...

G's new container for his dogfood. He loves to try and break into it.
