Finals Week!

Today is the first day of Steve's finals week. I have to take a second to brag about my husband, I am so proud of him, he has just been an amazing husband, dad, and student. Steve is taking some really hard classes this semester including chemistry- yuck, and Anatomy. We made a deal that if he gets all A's in his classes then he can buy an XBOX 360 at the end of the semester. Well, we already bought the Xbox because we found a really good deal, so he better get all A's. I have no doubt that he will, so far he has gotten A's and even some 100's on his tests throughout the semester. The past couple of weeks Steve has been staying on campus late to study because it's been kind of hard for him to study at home, which has been hard on me because I am at home all day long, and I really come to miss my husband. But as soon as he walks in the door after a long day of work, studying, and school, he is the Dad and Simon is his. They play together for the rest of the night. Last night I actually ditched Steve to run to WalMart for a minute, and he stayed home with Simon who has been really cranky. So cranky Steve even had to give him a bottle, luckily I have lots of milk stored up in the freezer. But anyways, I am so proud of Steve. He has been doing such a good job with his schoolwork and still finding time in his busy hectic schedule to play with his son and take care of his wife, and even get straight A's in his classes. I know he can pull off all A's, in one class he just has to get at least a 64% to get an A in the class... I don't think that will be a problem. So here's to Steve and final's week, and getting straight A's to earn the Xbox 360 we already bought!!

UPDATE: Steve just called me and he got a 94 on his Anatomy final!!!!!

Some Firsts

First bath- very unhappy

First Swing ride

Simon Santa

Cindy and Amy bought Simon and Zane these little Santa suits. Cindy wanted to use her two new grandbabies for her Christmas cards so we got them all dressed up and did a little photo shoot. Sadly, by the time we had both babies ready to take pictures, they became quite unhappy and were both crying, hence the pictures with the fingers in their mouths. Kristy and I would stick our finger in our baby's mouth, and once they both stopped crying we would count to three then her and I would pull out our finger and duck so everyone else could take pictures. When I first found out about the Santa suits I have to admit I was a little skeptical and thought it was kinda cheesy, but once I saw them in their outfits, it was adorable. I love my little Simon-man, he is just the cutest baby ever!!! And little Zane is cute, sadly he lost one of his little booties, so he ended up going barefoot, but he is just so cute and tiny. Simon and Zane are cousins, Zane belongs to Steve's sister Kristy and he was born 10 days after Simon!
