I am so entirely, reidiculously grossed out by boogers, snot, and the like. Anyone who knows me, KNOWS! I gag at the thought of a slimy straggler, or a danling drip. I'm gagging right now just thinkig about it. My own booggers are at best- OK, manageable. Anyone else's are just- repulsive. But....
How then, do I love Payton so much more at the end of today, which I have spent attacking his ever slime-filled nose every time he turns around? It baffles me. I don't even gag- I know, impressive. It's gross, yes, but for some weird reason it doesn't bother me. Don't get me wrong- I don't love it. I'm not ready to become 'queen boogie sucker' but I just don't mind. Once today he even laid his sweet head on my shoulder. As he rested I noticed his 'drippage,' and thought about how icky it was, but decided a little snot on my shirt was well worth it for a little cuddling. It's still there.
My, how my ability to love has changed! I still gag at the thought of anyone else's boogs, but for now, I'll take wiping his, and be SO thankful that it's my job to love him, just like this. :)

March Madness!

One crazy night in the tub! Notice no Water!
Does it really get any better?

I suppose I dress him like this because I know his prep days are numbered.

First OREO cookie!

Dunked it 'till the last crumb crumbled!

G.I. Payton!
Broomball at Sky Lodge- yes that is ice.

Can you blame him? There was a ball out there- he had to go get it.

January and February- TUNDRA

Our day at 1-2-3 JUMP! Tiff is NOT the mother of 3 because of places like this. :) It was enormously fun, but a workout for momma!

Get your SNOW on!....Starting with...well- nto pants.

I said...brrrrr! It's cold outside! You gotta get the right gear on. Take a tip from me and start with your boots and hat. Pants- they're overrated.

I love mom's boots, as you can see, i'm very happy about wearing them.

Snow, Snow and MORE snow!

Walking is OLD news! These boots are made for Runnin'!
Tryin' out the snow gear

We are seeing a lot of this these days.
Christmas Morning!


I slept through the Christmas Eve service.

My friend Josie and Me...She gives wonderful pre-nap hugs

With Kaiti and Ronni on our Trip to feed homeless in Chicago.

Is this where they go?

As you can see- I LOVE it!

My favorite place in my room, my chair. Not to mention my favorite attire.

Much to mom's dismay- I loved the kitties.

Watch'n the BEARS with Daddy

ONE! (October 2009)

Many faces of Payton
Waving bye-bye to the cars

The WHOLE family

Would you like some of this tasty corn I found?

Ah- finally, a moment of peace.


All boy!
