John's 2nd birthday & January pics

We had many fun celebrations for John's 2nd birthday including parties with both families as well as friends back here in Colorado. John's favorite part was definitely the 'cake-cake' (adapted from 'cupcake'), which was great since he wanted nothing to do with his cake on his 1st birthday. Below in the slide show you will see pics from the various birthday festivities. There is also a picture of the amazing charcoal portrait of John that my parents had done for us for his 2nd birthday. I included some pictures from the last couple of weeks of John doing some of his favorite activities. You can stop the picture and see the caption by holding your mouse over the picture.

Christmas 2007!

I am back!! I am finally posting some pics from our time with family and friends in OH, IN & MI over Christmas and New Years. John loved his time with all of his grandparents, aunt & uncles! It is so fun to see all of them become such a special part of John's life, even though we are far away. I am finally feeling 'back into the swing of things' here in CO after 2.5 weeks of traveling in the midwest. One highlight is that I am actually keeping my New Years resolutions so far this year, which is not often the case. :) They were 1) to exercise more and 2) to start using the reusable grocery bags that I have had in my car for months and never have used. I made a conscious effort to make managable resolutions so that I might actually keep them, so I am quite excited that I have seen progress in both!

John turned 2 on Jan. 7th, so in a few days, I will post John's pictures from our celebrations.
