The last two days we have had some glorious weather! Glorious for Kansas in January anyway. And actually as I type this, the weatherman is predicting 4 to 8 inches of snow. The weathermen are never accurate. I almost feel a little sorry for them.Anyways, Bo and I soaked up the opportunity to get outside and absorb some vitamin D. This is regardless of the phone call from my brother early that morning warning us of a cougar sighting at a farm behind our house the night before. We didn't let a cougar sighting strip us of our opportunity to get away from the same four walls we've been staring at for weeks! That boy had cabin fever and his mama was getting a little irritated by it!
Cruz joined us outside, but wasn't enjoying the sunshine in his eyes. I can HAPPILY say that that child has gotten over his ear infections and is acting like a NEW baby! He has been content as ever to sit and play and nap when his mama lays him down. Thank goodness!!

About a month ago I found this hair poofing video on Kelly's blog . I thought it was really cute and very informational :) I emailed it to my mom and sisters and told them that they should watch it. By Christmas I had mastered the art of hair poofing as suggested in the video and put my new found talent on display at our family Christmas gathering. The girls were impressed and I got many compliments. My poof wasn't nearly as high as Jill's in the video, but I was proud enough of it and my mom and sister's wanted to know how I did it. So we planned a night to get together and watch the video. We started the night with dinner at On the Border and had some yummy margaritas.
Evidently hair poofing is painful.
That's some BIG hair!
And...the finished product. We only practiced on Emmy that night. Not too bad.
Then the make-up queen Kels took Em to her teeny tiny bathroom and showed her how to properly apply eyeliner. They're gonna love these shots.
These too. Your welcome Kels! LOL. :) Sexy girl.
We had a good time that night. Any excuse to get together will work for us! Here's the link to Jennifer's blog, Jill's sister, who initially posted the video. They are too cute with their southern accents.

Around mid December Cruz started going to bed really late, like MIDNIGHT. It's also around that time that he got a cold. Not a bad cold, just a little runny nose. That stuck around about a week, then turned into a goopey eye cold...not fun. Thought the sickness was gone, but the poor little guy was still super fussy. This past weekend I kind of noticed he was swatting at his ears repeatedly. Didn't think too much of it until earlier this week he woke up every hour during the night and I caught him grabbing his ears alot. Well, this mama took him straight in to see the doc, and yep - he doesn't have an ear infection in just one ear, he has one in both ears. He's been on antibiotics for a couple days now. Yesterday we couldn't set him down at all without him crying his eyes out. And last night was pretty sad watching him grab his ear and the back of his head. But today we've managed to get him to smile a few times....I hate it when my babies are sick :( Thankfully I am able to be with them when they need me most and don't have to worry about calling in sick.
As for his brother, I still can't talk this kid into getting dressed despite the 10 degree weather outside.
