march sixteen :: 31 days :: day sixteen

Day sixteen. Coughing up a lung still, and my son is just too cute.


Today I decided to take Sean out to the Purim party at the Y were we take his classes every week. When we got there, unfortunately there wasn't much to for Sean's age range to do, so we donated our Kosher non-perishable item (which I had to look up this chart to see what was appropriately and correctly identified as Kosher). Purim is the "Jewish" Halloween, so Sean dressed up as a bumblebee. Ain't he a cute one?

We didn't stay long. The arts & crafts as well as the carnival activities were just a tad too old for Sean. It's too bad, maybe next year. We'll see.


Upon leaving I saw a car parked in the lot with this bumper sticker. It made me smile.

Upon getting home, Sean had free reign over the house. I was in the den knitting, Jamie was in the basement on his computer and we just let him roam. He checked out the basement for a while, played in the playroom, and then wandered up the stairs. All of a sudden it got quiet. Really quiet. Jamie went up the stairs to see what was doing, and found Sean at the top of the stairs like this:

He found an Oreo Cakester in Jamie's night table drawer, and well... decided to enjoy it....

Certainly did enjoy his chocolate indeed....

Don't you just love his face??? Too cute.

Remember my glasses post from almost a year ago? (Picture above is from that post). Anyhow, I turned these glasses that I wasn't really wearing anymore into these (below):

Prescription sunglasses! Now I don't have to squint anymore when driving. The only sunglasses I had were non-prescription and I barely wear my contacts lenses anymore (due to comfort) and so I needed to get these made.

I'm still not feeling 100%, my lungs are still killing, I'm hoping that by tomorrow the antibiotics kick in..... I'm sooooo sick of coughing, and baby boy number 2 doesn't like it so much....

Oh, Speaking of Baby Boy Number 2......

I no longer have to call him Baby Boy Number 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Baby Boy Number 2's name is.....

Mackenzie "Mack" Riley.

He is being named after Mackenzie Reed who died at the age of 4 in a lake up north from Montreal in July 2006. There is a fundraiser on April 28th for the foundation in the little boys name, and I'm hoping to attend. Mackenzie was the son of a friend of Jamie's Uncle. Jamie knows the father, and we see him from time to time. There is an article here about him, as well as here.

Those who guessed Mackenzie, (I had talked about him here in July 2006) (Shelby, Adrienne, Jenn F, Caroline, Kimber, Ikkinlala (Nicole), Marga, AliP and Bertha) I've entered your names into a drawing, and BERTHA is the winner! (I used a Random Generator to pick out the name, in order of your responses to the post). (I need you to email me your mailing address again Bertha - I seem to not have it anymore).

I've got TWO more rows left on the Baby Surprise Jacket. TWO. And then, once done, I'm hopping into bed and reading some more in the book that I'm currently reading, as my mother wants to borrow it as soon as I'm done. Apparently I don't read as fast as she does - because those two books that my sister was supposed to loan me a week ago today, she has read them both and now wants to read this one! Must. read. faster.

Day sixteen. Spent no money. It's easy to spend no money when you're sick. Tomorrow will be the great big challenge. I have 2 returns to do - so I will have to keep my will power strong when going into those stores. I can do it!

Oh. I love baby boy #2's name. I wouldn't have thought of it in a million years! One of my favorite little babysitting charges when I was a child was a Mackenzie. She always cracked me up and we had a wonderful time!

Those pictures of Sean are just too cute. Hopefully there wasn't too much chocolate anywhere else!

Caroline said...

Woohoo! I'm happy I got it right, even though I didn't win. I think MacKenzie is a totally cute name. :) Do you have a middle name too?

L's thoughts said...

I have to let you know I love the name you've chosen. Mackenzie is youngest son's middle name (because I like the name so well and I knew he would be the last-he got the name!) and Riley is another son's name. You don't hear Mackenzie for a boy very often, so I'll have to tell mine there's another boy with that name.

Thanks for sharing the adventures of little boys. Mine are old enough, I have forgotten a lot of theirs.

adrienne said...

love sean's chocolate face. i have one of my younger's face also covered with chocolate from a cupcake from older's school's bake sale. those are the special pics!

apple cake was excellent! i thought i had added a LOT of cinnamon but i think i need to add more next time. what happens if you don't use macintosh apples? i am assuming that some apples cook down with too much water?

love baby's name!

Kimber said...
