BO - Oh how we were thankful for this blessed and gentle soul.  He was truly an amazing neighbor for us and especially Dominic.  Dominic would come home and want to go see Bo.  He knew he would have some candy or pocket change waiting for him.  And he really loved when he got the chance to drive the lawnmower.  He was really dedicated to the yard work and his garden.  He was a great example of how to serve others.  We never asked him to do anything, but our yard was always cut and never had a leaf on it.  Our Heavenly Father decided it was time for him to come home and he was gone.   I am planning on starting a garden for Dominic to tend to in Bo's honor.  We loved him so much and he is truly missed, but he is with our Heavenly Father and in very good hands.

Dominic and the Ducks

We went to feed the local ducks at the park and found little baby ducks. Dominic was really excited and just wanted to talk to them. I had to keep telling him not to run the ducks into the water. There is also a playground at the park. Dominic has so much fun climbing the ladder.

This little guy has a broken wing. He gets as close to you as he can for the bread.

Dominic Birthday

Dominic and his Transformers
Dominic's 4th birthday was a great day.  He was excited to have all of his Transfromer toys.  He was really excited when his Buddy Bo gave him the big Bumblebee.  We tried to throw in some candy and sidewalk chalk as gifts but he quickly said they were not toys and was not supposed to be presents.  He just wants toys and more toys. 

He is in Preschool and doing really good.  He is learning all about fire safety and emergency numbers.  I was in the grocery store and saw a fire extinguisher, he shouted "Fire Safety".  And when you ask him for his phone number he will tell you "9-1-1".  I am having a hard time telling him that is for the Police, Fire, and EMS.

We love him.

Happy Birthday Courtney

Dominic was very upset that it wasn't his birthday. Courtney had to hurry and blow out the candles before we had to call the fire department.

Dominic was having some fun with the water gun. Soaking the birthday girl.

Random Pictures

Here are just a couple of random pics of Courtney and Dominic

Christmas 2010

We are thankful for all our friends and family. The church brought us over a really nice fruit basket and Dominic wanted to make sure he got all the oranges. As you can see he grabbed as many as his little hands could carry.

Christmas morning. Dominic had a couple of big items. He really like the scooter. He really gets around the house now. He also likes working on his workbench. I can wait til he gets older and can really fix things around the house.
Courtney enjoyed her IPOD Dock station, Netbook, calendar and other items.
Michele enjoys her hot chocolate and zagnut bars. You would not believe how hard it is to find those candy bars. I had to order then online.

Dominic Christmas Special

Dominic had his Christmas Special Today at School. I thought he would do great with me in the audience, but I was wrong. He came out with his bells and present around his neck and they were being part of a parade. I was sitting in the second row and as soon as he walked by me, he ducked out of line and into my lap. They tried to get him to get up and sing, but as you can see in the picture it was not a success. Now that he is home, he is singing all the time. I guess he just did not like the crowd. Hoping it will change in the future. After the party he just told me that he just wanted to go home. So I had the little guy all day long.

We were waiting for mom outside of Kroger and playing peek a boo. And "Yes" we are still having issues with the binky. I really wish it would go away. But he is still tooo cute.
