My Son Sean Goofing Off

I have been taking pictures of my son every once and awhile this month and here are some of those pictures of my son goofing around.

My son is such a ham but we love him none the less.

Strong Wind

On September 13 we had a gust of strong wind that knocked down a branch off of a tree in the Apartment complex next door which happened to take out the power lines. It also happen to damage two trucks that were parked under the tree. We were out of power for three hours while APS fixed everything. I took some picture of the truck and here are those pictures.

The Management of the Apartment finally got the hint and decided to remove the troublesome trees(everytime we had a storm in our area these same trees would take out the power lines). I did not take pictures of them cutting down the trees.

Easter 2009 Silk Dyed Eggs

This Easter I decided to follow an idea that I saw on Martha Stewart Living. I went to Goodwill to buy old silk neckties. I bought them for $1.99 and if you are lucky when you cut the neckties up to wrap the eggs in, you can get 2 or 3 pieces out of the neckties. You can use any silk printed clothing for this.

How to Silk Dye Easter Eggs

1. Cut silk into pieces large enough to wrap around a raw egg.

2. Tightly wrap a raw egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg. Secure with a twist tie.

3. Place the silk-wrapped egg in a piece of non-dyed cotton and secure tightly with another twist-tie.

4. Place egg(s) in an enamel or glass pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover eggs completely. Add three tablespoons of white vinegar to the water.

5. Bring water to a boil, turn heat down, and simmer for 20 minutes or longer.

6. Remove eggs from water with tongs or spoon, place on a cooling rack, and let cool.

7. Remove silk from cooled egg.

8. For shiny eggs, wipe with a paper towel dabbed in vegetable oil.

Depending on the silk neckties you can get great designs on the eggs.

Jamie my wife has decided to do this next year and the next.

Sean Learns A New Phrase

Yesterday Jamie decided to pull out the bowling set that her grandma got Sean for Christmas. After Jamie knocked over the pins, Sean said out of nowhere Oh No! So Jamie decided to video record him saying it and here is that video. It is almost as good as the Bloodah! video that you can view online.

Sean's 2nd Birthday

On January 25, 2009 Jamie and I along with my in-laws threw Sean his 2nd birthday party. We held it at Mckellip lake park it was the same place we had his 1st birthday party. We let him run around and play. Robert, Chris, Amanda, And Kathi let Sean go up to the edge of the water (Indian Bend Wash). Here are some of the pictures Chris and I took during the party.

Before Sean went to play by the lake shore we had lunch and here is Sean eating first.

When Sean went to the lake to play he started to throw rocks in the water and smack the water with a stick. Then out of nowhere he went in to the water to get a pine cone and here are those pictures.

After we decided that Sean had played in the water long enough I had to change him. I was so glad that I did bring a complete change of clothes for him, so we could continue with the party. Since Sean is crazy about Disney Cars (movie) we got him a cake that was decorated in Disney Cars decals. We had Sean open his present first since everyone was still full from eating lunch.

When we cut the cake to eat it, it had pieces of plastic string randomly through it. We still ate most of it, I called Fry's up and told them what we found in it and they told us bring it back with receipt to refund us. Even after I told them that we ate 2/3 of the cake, they still refunded us our money. Jamie was a little upset that we did not sing him the Happy Birthday song so I picked up a small cake so Jamie, Eric, and I could sing it to him to make her happy. Here is the picture of that moment.

Since Sean's grandpa Bob could not come for several reasons he sent Sean $50.00 and today this is what we bought for him with the money. There was more stuff we got him with the money he received from other family members, but the other stuff was not big enough to blog it. Yes most of it is Disney Cars decorated. With the gift card our sister Barbara gave him we bought a baby potty.

Over all he had a very busy day on his birthday and he crashed on the way home.

A Trip Up North

Today my brothers and I went up north to the Payson, AZ area to take pictures of the snow and other stuff.

At one of the many stops I decided to video record Chris walking through the snow and here is what I recorded. Robert and I added the sound track Baby Elephant Walk to it and put it on Youtube. I think it would get great laughs on Youtube.

Here are some of my pictures that I took up north, I took them for fun.
