Day 365 (Monday, August 1st) ~ Tribute to the one who made this all possible!

As I type the final post of this 365 day photo blog ( just a little overdue as you can see by the date ;) I blame it on baby just so you know!), I thought it only fitting to make sure to give credit to the camera responsible for a years worth of daily pictures!

It probably did more work than I did this year!  But I certainly couldn't have done it without it ;)
And on that note... I bid this blog a fond farewell!

Day 364 (Sunday, July 31st) ~ Hello Moshi!

Wrapping up a year of birthdays, we come to my mom's :)  This is her present, Moshi... it's a voice activated alarm clock!  You say "hello Moshi" and then it responds and you can give it commands and everything, its quite entertaining!

Day 363 (Saturday, July 30th) ~ Baby book :)

I couldn't sleep at all early this morning so I came out to the couch which is ofetn more comfortable than the bed.  After being there for a while I noticed something on the coffee table that was't usually there.  It was a pregnancy book from Nate's parents!  Mercie had brought it home with her late last night.  I skimmed through the first weeks until I got to where I am now, which is in the 11th week, and then was able to fall asleep :)

Day 362 (Friday, July 29th) ~ Kitties in the window...

Steve and Ramona both love sitting in the window but rarely at the same time, so I made sure to take the opportunity to get a pictureof them together!

Day 361 (Thursday, July 28th) ~ Confused Spider....

I got home early from work today, and out on the balcony in the light of day was this spider intently building a web!  I watched for a long time wondering why on earth it was not doing that at night!

Day 360 (Wednesday, July 27th) ~ Act like a kid morning!

I was getting cereal before work when I realized that the box said there was a toy inside.  Mind you I've had this cereal for two weeks now and never noticed.  I immediately started acting like a little kid digging through the box to find it :)

Day 359 (Tuesday, July 26th) ~ New abilities...

Kateri just keeps getting smarter every day... today I found her lining up her toys saying "this one, then this one, and this one"  It's really fun to watch her grasp concepts like that!

Day 258 (Monday, July 25th) ~ Kateri's "Fowers"

Kateri loves flowers and Veronica picked these from the front yard for her, she says "BIG fowers" all excited and carried them around all afternoon!

Day 257 (Sunday, July 24th) ~ Too good to be True...

We went to Friendlys tonight with Ricky, Charlie, and Ashley and a bunch of her friends.  My chicken wrap is never on any specials.  But they have a new one and sure enough there it was!!!

Day 256 (Saturday, July 23rd) ~ The ideas we come up with sometimes...

Venus Fly Trap plants..... yeah!  Nate had one when he was younger so when he found this online we thought, for some unknown reason, that it would be fun to try to grow one.  It may be too late for this year, but they came today so we will have them to grow in the appropriate season next year!  Oh my!

Day 355 (Friday, July 22nd) ~ Flat Fishes!

Can't exactly remember why at the moment, but we thought this was really funny at the time for some reason!

Day 354 (Thursday, July 21st) ~ Banana Oatmeal!

Day 353 (Wednesday, July 20th) ~ The last Harry Potter...

Nate and Mercie and I went to see it in the theater today.  I figured I started the first one seeing it in the theater and, while I didn't see each and every one that way, I thought it was only fitting that I ended it that way!

Day 352 (Tuesday, July 19th) ~ Birthday Anniversary Day!!!

Thankfully I have facebook to remind me of these things ;)

Just kidding..... how could I forget :)  Today was my second anniversary with Nate, and Suzanne turned 15!  My dad's birthday is also tomorrow <3

Day 351 (Monday, July 18th) ~ Degrassi Summer event

One of my guilty "yes I watch that show" moments :)  I've never had the channel it comes on, until now, so I've never been able to watch anything current.  I started watching it every now and then when I was a live in nanny and home all day but I thought it was stupid.... it pretty much is, but for some reason I get a kick out of wasting time on it anyways.  So when I realized we had the channel for it finally I got all teenager like when I realized I could watch it as it aired this summer lol

Day 350 (Sunday July 17th) ~ Navy Band

This Sunday's concert in the park was a navy band, probably the only other we will get to.  My parents were in the Air Force and my grandfather was Navy... Nate's dad was in the Army, so at the end when they play all the songs for the different branches of the military it's always fun to watch our family memebers stand up to represent them!

Day 349 (Saturday, July 16th) ~ Private Practice

This is the spin off from Grey's Anatomy and since I'm currently all caught up on that I decided to go ahead and start the spin off! There are already 4 seasons of it so I won't be caught up for some time, but it looks just as good so I'm excited to start it!

Day 348 (Friday, July 15th) ~ Vacation Bible School

Mandy's kids have had VBS the last week at the same church in which I play handbells. Jamie Nykiel, my friend and handbell director, does the music for the week and at the end they have a program for friends and family on Friday evening, sinceit was so close by I couldn't miss it!

Day 347 (Thursday, July 14th) ~ Wind Chimes...

That I actually like... I've never been a big fan but these are outside on Mandy and John's front portch and I like it when it's windy because they do sound pretty!

Day 346 (Wednesday, July 13th) ~ Zucchini Relish Part 2.

All canned and looking quite beautiful if I do say so myself :)

Day 345 (Tuesday, July 12th) ~ Zucchini Relish Part 1.

My mom, grandmother and I make Zucchini Relish every year from my moms garden zucchini.  Coming from someone who never liked relish growing up, I LOVE this stuff.  Today was chopping all the zucchini, peppers and onions needed for the canning process tomorrow!

Day 344 (Monday July 11th) ~ The bumblebee in the flower!

Self explanitory :)

Day 343 (Sunday, July 10th) ~ Joanna and Fishes

Day 342 (Saturday July 9th) ~ Cravings and Necessary things!

I went to Walmart with my mom today.... which can be dangerous when pregnant :)  The gum was necessary because tastes are starting to stick in my mouth a lot and I don't like it.... but the ginger ale was actually a craving as were the cheerios!  I had to keep from sticking ten other things in the cart so I didn't spend all my money!

Day 341 (Friday, July 8th) ~ Tree down

We had a pretty huge storm last night, mostly a lot of wind.  When we left for work this morning this is what greeted us outside the door laying straight across the steps and sidewalk.

Edit to Add.... we lost the tree on the other side the exact same way during Hurricane Irene!

Day 340 (Thursday July 7th) ~ kid geniuses!

I'm sitting down in the big room today and for the millionth time since 8 A.M I hear "Miss Jessica!!!!!" I turn around to see this...

Aren' t they awesome!
