NCAA Brackets...Just for fun

This is the first year I have even filled out a bracket.  I love the NBA and college basketball during March Madness is taking a close second.  Just for fun here is a little video of someone who loves Basketball just as much as I do.  (Don't miss his pump fake).

Catching Up

Ty and I cannot wait for warm weather. The cold does not discourage us from going to the zoo but it makes it a lot less fun. Ty gets quite upset that the Merry Go Round is not open and that he has to be all bundled up.
Ty is getting so big! He only needs four more teeth to come in and then he has all of them! I can't believe my 5lb little guy is this big. Ty can say a number of words when he chooses. Some of his favorites include: Shoot it, plez (deese), book, more, candy, blacky, daisy, touch it, ball, daddy, mama, gammy woof, Abs(for his cousin), Todos (learned this from Handy Manny), teeth, hands, eye, up, out.
Ty is a very very active little guy. He does not like to be confined anywhere. Church is pretty much a nightmare, unless he has his Handy Manny tools to fix everything in sight, including the man's bald head in front of us (whoops). Ty still loves Basketball and can't wait to play outside on the big hoop. Ty loves Mickey Mouse and going down the slide. He also loves to dance.
Ty is a very happy baby. He is easy going and so much fun. However if he does not want to do something he lets you know. (See Below).
Needless to say the first haircut did not go very well.
This is the I built for Ty. He loved it especially when he could play in there with his cousin and his Doggie. He was in Heaven. Ty loves cars and climbing on anything, he is a typical boy!

Oh how time flies.

A Glass Half Full

I've been thinking a lot about this picture lately. Is the glass Half Full or Half Empty? I've made a more consistent effort in my life to make sure I keep looking at a half full glass.
Recently this cute little mister has been sick (pretty much non-stop). From running noses, coughs, refusing to eat and throwing up, we have dealt with it all in the past little while.

However My glass is still half full. Why? Because I have him to cuddle with all day to wipe his nose, and hold him while he sleeps. Watching the news, reading stories on the internet, listening to trials my friends are going through I realize that indeed I am so blessed.

                                                              I dumped out my half empty glass.

You didn't think I could go a whole blog post without talking about running so here it is.
So in relation to this I'm only doing half of the full marathon I planned to run on my birthday. At first when I switched I was so down on myself thinking my glass was half empty.  See previous blog post.
But I realized something. My glass is half full, I'm half way to reaching a full and its ok if I don't do it right now. (Perhaps in the fall when I can train outside all summer and don't
Have to do over 16 miles on the treadmill).  Because another half is still another huge accomplishment.

I want to be a positive person. I want people to want to talk to me because I make their day better not worse. I refuse to look at anything in life as being half empty. (Whether it is work, exercise,
money, or being a parent).

Why: Cause my glass is half full! How bout yours?

We took a trip to Yellowstone with Joe's Family over President's Day Weekend.  It was so much fun.  This was my first time to West Yellowstone and I loved it.  We started off the weekend by taking a snow cat into Yellowstone and riding on the bus all day.  We visited the Hot Pots and Old Faithful.  We saw Bison, Elk and three bald eagles.  It was so much fun to be with the family!  The next day we went snow mobiling.  This was also my first time and it was a lot of fun.  We also enjoyed (or I should say I very much enjoyed) watching all-star weekend all weekend long.  We visted the bear and the wolf exhitibt.  I am excited for the trip we are planning this spring/summer to go try and spot some bears.
