My dad's awesome trucks.
My niece and nephew quite a few Easters ago.

I watched I am Legend a while ago. I think Will is a talented actor and enjoy most of his movies, so this one was a no brainer. The photos below are from a scene in the beginning of the movie. I had a hard time remembering what the rest of the movie was about. Flashes of sweaty muscles kept flashing through my narrow mind. This man is fine, real fine. I want him to be my friend, forever.
At work last week, I walked by Pam's desk (she is a friend and the world's best receptionist, among other things, but that is for another post) and out of the blue said, "I can't quit thinking about Will Smith's navel." She looked at me like she always does when I say something off the wall and unstable. I act like this and she still comes over to my house. Have to hang on to friends like that.
So what I am trying to tell you is not to watch this movie. It will do bad things to you. You will burn dinner and put the laundry detergent in the refrigerator. Remember, I tried to warn you...

Even this robin is having issues with the weather.
Spencer and I basically played ball all day. This is how he likes to watch cartoons.
Playing ball in the kitchen for a change of scenery. LOL! (please ignore 1972 linoleum.)
I photoshopped this one. I really need to get a good one of him smiling!

We were stuck indoors today due to wind and the fact that it was only a little over 3o degrees. Brrr! We had a nice lazy day.
Spencer's attention span is not very long for many learning activities. He likes to tell you he is "all done" mere moments after you start. One thing he really likes to do and is proud to accomplish is saying words and numbers off of his Slide and Learn Flash Cards. Aunt Tanya got him two sets of these last year. One Dora, with words and one Diego, with numbers. As usual, she thought of a perfect idea to keep Spencer occupied long enough to learn. Here are a few pictures of Spencer telling me all the words he knows. He opens the slide card and then I say the letter and he repeats after me. Then I say the word and he repeats that. When we first started he would either ignore me if he couldn't say the word or he would just grunt. One time he even said apple for every word! It was very hard for me not to laugh! Now he tries every letter and word and can pronounce most of them fairly well. I am so proud of him!

Unfortunately, the company I work for has slow business (along with half the country), so the office staff are laid off one day a week. Today was my day. I picked Spencer up from the school bus at daycare and made his whole day. When the doors of the bus opened and he saw me, his eyes got huge and he started jumping up and down. I tried to get it on camera but didn't quite do it.
We came home and had lunch together and then a nap. A five minute nap. It took me longer to get Spencer to stop talking in his bed than he stayed asleep. The upside is that he didn't get out of bed once tonight after I tucked him in. You always have to look at the upside. : )
