Welcome to 2010

I'm still up. Not celebrating, but bogged down with a silly project of mine. For the past couple years now I have been trying to really simplify my life and get rid of stuff! This also includes all the silly memorabilia from my childhood. Because I am a sentimentalist at heart, I feel like I have to preserve some of it however, so I am scanning artwork, cards, and certificates. I just finished all my stuff from elementary school. I still have 80% of a huge file box to scan will have to be enough for now, because I am going to bed.

It's a wrap!

Can't believe that it's New Year's even already! I've been so terrible at keeping up with the blog this year. Liam has grown in so many ways and is such an amazing little boy! This Monday he climbed in bed with my after his daddy got up to get ready for work. He told me, "Mommy, you're my best friend." Then he also said that kitty and daddy and Kensie (a girl in his preschool class) were also all his "best" friends. He is so sweet!

Today we all went to visit the Air Zoo again. This time we started at the space exhibits. Liam was so excited he kept running from display to display. In the WWII exhibits, we all got to go inside a bomber and Liam sat in a cockpit of a fighter jet. It was a fun day and a great way to end the year.

Story Time

It makes me so happy that Liam has an overwhelming love of reading. At nap time and in the morning, he loves to pull all the 200+ books off his shelf and "read" through many of them. Despite the mess it makes, I am pleased that he loves his books. Not only does he love to be read to be us and his teachers, lately he also likes to tell stories of his own or pretends to "read" a book to us from what he remembers or sees in the picture. Tonight he read The Little Engine that Could. It is so sweet and precious! He also has started asking me what the words say on signs or subtitles on the TV. Hopefully he will keep up this curiosity and interest in words and reading....of course he still has to master his letters before we get too carried away. ;)

A Train Load of Fun

Today we treated Liam to a ride on a steam engine. This is a holiday tradition we started last year. This time my mom and Sean's parents were able to join us. I like giving Liam rich memories, rather than more stuff for Christmas. Here are some photos from our adventure...
