Daddy's boy

I don't know how many of you out there know that Blake is a BIG daddy's boy. When Joe gets home from work or school Blake is the most excited little boy and that excitement usually lasts all night. The other night Joe came home late from school and Blake couldn't stop talking to him. I don't mean just talking but yelling his stories at him while getting all red faced because he was so excited to talk to his dad. The picture above is of Blake and Joe laying on the floor watching the UNR basketball game on tv together. Whatever Joe is doing Blake must do also. He just adores his father. 
I have to say that this is a big blessing in my life. I say this because when Joe gets home, it is all about him. I usually get the evenings off because Blake just wants to be with Joe. It's GREAT! I know Blake does love me but I think dad ranks higher than me, which is A-ok with me. I sure hope all my kids feel the same way about their dad because that would mean each evening I would have off!


Blake has recently had his first slurpee. The other night I was really wanting a cherry pepsi and Joe so willingly obliged and even took Blake with him! When they got back Blake had his very own slurpee. Of course he loved it and wouldn't let go of that cup. He would however give us sips when we asked for one which I thought was pretty good for a stingy 1 1/2 year old. Since this picture was taken Blake has had one other slurpee and the novelty has not worn off. Another picture of Blake and his cheesy smile. I can't get him to smile normally... Maybe one day. 

Guitar Hero

We recently acquired Guitar Hero. During our stay in Utah for Darren, Amy and Alex's weekend we played quite a bit of guitar hero and it is safe to say that we became addicted. When we returned home we thought it would be good to get this game for my birthday, but instead of waiting we decided to buy the game a couple weeks early. 
We have now been playing it all the time. When I say "we" I actually mean Joe has been playing it constantly. I haven't played as much as I would like but I will get there. 
Joe has gotten really good and I am so so. We can beat anything we play on Medium although we may not do the best. This is a great game and all are welcome to come over and play!
