St George, Jan 09

Well we have been stuck indoors for the past week and a half because Ira had a bad case of the flu. We needed to get out of the house and were willing to endure Ira's screaming fits in the car to head to a warmer weather. It is amazing what 20 degrees warmer does for your spirits. We played outside and went on walks, bike rides and enjoyed lounging around. We ended our trip with both kids getting the croup. Lucky us! Oh well at least we had a little ray of sunshine for a short brief weekend.

I just like frosting.

One likes only the frosting and the other is just happy for the scraps. I guess it is a little obvious that Beck had free reign of the Oreo's today.

Beck's Dreamin

After spending a few days with my mom followed by GG Beck ate his fair share of treats and candy. On the first night home with Jon and I he woke up in the middle of the night yelling in his sleep " I want Candy " He obviously has a lot to worry about in his sleep. It made me miss the days of Nandy and the beginning of this blog.

Unite Us

I stole this post from my sister because we were discussing this today and I just cannot believe this. So here are the words from the Candice. Capitolism . Conan blog

This is how the immaculate inauguration ended:

Rev Joseph Lowery's benediction

"We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around. When yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

I thought we had chosen right. We elected The Chosen One.

Regardless of how completely offended I am... what in the world?? This is what he came up with "When yellow will be mellow" Do prayers have to rhyme?

Happy Birthday Grandma Shipley

Grandma Shipley,
We hope you have a wonderful birthday in Africa. We miss you and look forward to celebrating your birthday next year with you. We love you!

Happy 3rd Birthday Beckham

Months after being kicked off Jess's blog, I am back as a guest columnist. There has been some gentle prodding...Jess loves these sappy birthday messages...I think they are sappy (although I will admit to violating this in the past)...and Beckham can't read. The clincher came tonight when Jess reminded me that I have spent 4 hours watching 24 in (coincidentally) the last 24 hours and yet I can't find time to write this post.

Where to start? Beckham has grown up...he recently turned in his bottle for his Diego sippy cup. I figure we have two more years until we are no longer new can no longer lay claim to this label once your child is attending a school of some sorts. Beckham has had many fine moments over the past year that have endeared himself to me:

1) The time he told me he wanted to get a new daddy only to look at me a few minutes later to say that he had decided to keep me.

2) The time he started yelling, "watch out for the poops" when he let a floater loose while swimming with Candice in the St. George hot tub.

3) The time he screamed at me because he thought I was leaving "mom" in the Lee's Grocery Store parking lot, only to change his mind after circling back to the front of the parking lot saying, "okay, let's leave mom...I want to go to the cabin."

4) The time he gathered himself in front of "G.G." after a breakdown to ask her (in a sad voice), "do you have a present for me." Which, by the way, successfully landed him his second present in two days...a present that was not originally purchased for him.

And last but not least (ladies, get your ahhhhs ready...those of you who don't ahhhh, get ready for the sappy part)

5) A few days ago when I was playing trains with him, he sat on my lap, I kissed his head, he turned around and looked at me and said, "Daddy, I love you."

I have been thinking...Ira has turned on me and now only wants Jess to hold him...Beckham's performance of late has brought him back into the picture of favorite child. Okay Jess, I love them both equally (Beckham...when you are old enough to read this, just remember that your Dad loves double blueberry doughnuts from Tasties and may be willing to revisit this "favorite child" issue).

Happy 3rd Birthday to Beckham Jon (should have been Jonathan, but your mother talked me out of it) Shipley.

Baby Ira finds chocolate

Ha Ha

It thought it would be good to have a record of Matt feeding baby Maggie. Plus I think it is a cute picture of the three of you.

Were Cousins

Lucky for Ira Auntie Robyn stopped by on her way back from SLC to lend some love to her sweet baby I.

Boys day out to the Dino Museum. We had a lot of fun with our cousin Ben who was in town for the Holidays. We also enjoyed our Auntie Becky a little bit too. This one is for you. Thanks for fitting us in last minute.
