January 20th - Nursing in my shoes

These are my shoes. My nursing shoes to be exact. Well worn and stained. They are the most comfortable pair I own. They keep my feet safe from God only knows what inhabits the hospital floor. They are with me during those long 12 hour shifts. If those shoes could talk...

Anyhow, here is a nice poem I found. :)

Sometimes I forget why I'm a nurse
And what's really in my heart.

Sometimes I'm just too busy
I don't know where to start.

Then someone holds my hand,
And greets me with a smile.

They ask if I could stay with them
For just a little while.

If I can calm a sorrowed heart
Just because I'm there.

Then I'm reminded why I'm a Nurse
It's all because I care.

Author unknown

And a fun one for us night shifters (true too)
If you waken a patient at night,
Please be gentle, don't give him a fright.
And stand back from the bed.
If he's out of his head,
He might try to punch out both your lights.

January 19th - Self Portrait

January 19th - Self Portrait, originally uploaded by christakp.

A self portrait for today. Here is the view my kids have of me most of the time. They know to stop and pose. Well Mackenzy does anyway. Ethan tends to run away at that perfect moment when I'm on the verge of capturing that perfect moment.

January 18th - Barbies

January 18th - Barbies, originally uploaded by christakp.

So my darn camera is playing evil tricks on me. I took several great shots of Ethan and Mackenzy but for some reason when I put the card in the computer the pictures were gone! Ugh!!!

This one stuck though. Here is Mackenzy doing one of her absolute favorite things. She loves her barbie dolls. She is using her Hannah Montana closet as a house. Cute. Also, she's wearing the new shirt from Jenny and Chelle. Thanks girls! So cute!

We went to lunch with Jenny today who was nice enough to drive all the way down here to the middle of nowhere. Thanks for lunch miss!

Mackenzy holding her cousin, Izabella. Bells is 6 months old and such a delight. We got to babysit her for a few hours today while grandma went to a movie. Nice to get the baby fix!

January 16th - football Saturday

Enough said! Thanks for the bunny ears Uncle John John. :)

January 15th - our view from the porch

Ok so I'm catching up again. Here is our view from the porch. Not bad, right? I tried to catch a sunset the other day but missed it by the time I grabbed my camera. Now we're back to cloudy drizzle. Ahhhh winter... when will you leave?

January 14th - getting into trouble

So yes I know I've posted a lot of Ethan pictures this week. It's easier because he's around more during the week and Mack is in school all day. Here's his latest dangerous act... drawer surfing! Will he ever be safe? I feel like I need to buy this boy a helmet and some pads.

January 13th - little charmer

January 13th - little charmer, originally uploaded by christakp.

Quite possibly the cutest little guy in the world. What? I'm not biased. lol. Not me!!! He was doing this thing where he squats down and looks up at you. So funny!

Well put!

I love this post and had to link it up here. I'm the mom of an intact little baby boy and I'm tired of explaining why. Even my OB/GYN had several "stern" conversations with me about it. To him and all judgementals *read it*

Circumcision is for weiners

Day 7, originally uploaded by christakp.

I'm finally back online and catching up on my posts. I've been taking my daily photos and now I get to share them. I love this picture. Ethan often climbs onto his big sisters lap and she loves to hold him. What a good big sister she is!

No posts for a few days

Well sadly in the move we are without internet for a few days. Why don't you just take away my oxygen? lol. I'm still doing my pic of the day and will post them all in order when we are back online and connected to the outside world again. The modem and install guy are set to arrive on the 11th.

January 6th - Sick Little Girl

January 6th - Sick Little Girl, originally uploaded by christakp.

Day 6 and now both kids are sick. :( January is off to a rocky start isn't it? She's home from school and has been tossing her cookies this morning. Ethan has been fussing and all of his breakfast came up. I'm up to my ears in things to do but am currently housebound. Lord please make my children well. Please?

January 5th

January 5th, originally uploaded by christakp.

Ethan climbing up the stairs in the new house. I looked everywhere for a decent baby gate and the one I bought is a piece of crud. It is so hard to put together. Guess I'll have to return it tomorrow and find a better one. Meaning I'll have to bite the bullet and drive ALL THE WAY to babies R Us.

So I spent all of January 5th unpacking and moving. The POD is empty I'm happy to report thanks to Raymond (brother in law) and Steve (father in law). I have tons of unpacking to do and the house is a mess but at least I can call and have the POD picked up.

January 4th

January 4th, originally uploaded by christakp.

Starting January 4th early, very very early. We're talking 2 am. Yes Ethan was up all night hugging the bowl. Poor baby. We were also up all night with him. His monkey beach towel spread out on the bed underneath us and a poor unsuspecting blue bowl to keep us safe from a huge mess. The little guy tossed and turned all night long. I'm exhausted and there is so much to be done today.

Today we are signing our lease for the new house. I was envisioning a picture of the house as day #4 but I think this is more memorable. lol

I'm up before dawn because today I must make an appointment for the lease signing, get Mack up and off to school, re-hydrate Ethan, go get a bank check and oh yes ~ make it to the vehicle licensing agency driving a car with expired tabs without getting caught and ticketed. Wish me luck!

January 2nd

Posted a day late of course! Ethan having a "chat" with his big sister. Consisting mostly of babbles and hand gestures. He's our sweet little boy and will most likely be competing with his sister for blog space on this project.

Ethan riding on his new radio flyer rocket that he received for Christmas. Being the daredevil that he is (yes even at 15 months) he spends a lot of his time trying to stand and balance on it, much to my terror.

A New Year

Project 365 - Day 1

It was hard to choose a photo but I have to start somewhere, right? I'm going to post one of my gorgeous blue eyed beauty. :) Love her! I took this photo on Auto settings with my little Kodak, this shot is SOOTC no editing done. Imagine how much I could make her eyes pop with PS editing? I may have to play around with that later.

Edited to add a photoshop version of the picture. I love it in black and white!

Oh and while I'm at it here is a picture of the view from my mom's deck. It snowed yesterday and I caught a shot before it all melts away.

Happy New Year

Wow, this is my first post since March 2008! I guess I'm a blogger slacker. My resolution is to try and keep up with this and be a better blogger. I've finally figured out how to get a background on here, yay!!! It only took a whole day... not bad, right?

Sooooooo New Years..... yeah. What have we done today? Not much. A load of laundry in the dryer, both kids bathed and one down for a nap. Mike has been reading all day. We are kind of boring. Oh well.

I'm going to also start project 365 today. I've been looking around trying to figure out what the heck is worth a picture today? Hmmmmmm..... I feel all this pressure to post a really great picture today because it's the very beginning of this 365 day project. Is there anything worthy? I'll be posting one tonight so hopefully I'll find inspiration somewhere. Welcome to 2010!
