Tic-Tac-Nose...(Part Deux)

A couple of years ago I wrote this post when Zach stuck a Tic-Tac up his nose while I was driving down the interstate. I thought he had learned his lesson. (Because apparently peppermint Tic-Tacs burn when thrust up ones nostril) I thought that we wouldn't be going down this road again. I thought the days of sticking things up his nose were days of yorn. I thought. A few weeks ago we were here at home. I was cleaning up from supper and Zach was relaxing on the couch before bedtime. I came into the living room after washing the dishes to check on him and he was setting on the couch crying. I asked him what the problem was and when he responded it was with a voice that immediately sent me back to that summer day on the interstate. The nasal voice. His response was "My gum is stuck in my nose". He was so calm! He was crying a little but not the hysterical cry that you would imagine, more like a quite little teary. After close investigation I discovered that his bubble gum was, in fact, stuck way up one side of his nose! You want to know what the trouble with bubble gum is? IT STRINGS!! My poor tweezers will never be the same again. Well, after much pulling and blowing and "I swear Zach if you ever stick something up your nose again it will stay there until you graduate High School!" the gum finally came out. So, I only really have question: How in the world does one get gum in his nose? If you guys can figure that out, well then your better than me cause friends, I have no idea!

Why I Haven't Blogged In A While...

I know that I haven't been on here in a few months. (I also just noticed that I have begun to say that a lot) It has been a very busy couple of months here! I thought I would share with you some of the adventures we've had already this year. Every February we take a little mini vacation to Oak Haven Resort in Gatlinburg, TN. They have some beautiful cabins in the Smokey Mountains. If your ever in that area you should check them out. Here are some of our photos from that trip.

In March Zach, My Mom and I took a week long trip to Dallas, TX. You may remember that my sister moved there in October, and my Mom's sister also lives in the Dallas area so we went to go see them. We had a blast and got to see so much! We went to an Aquarium, the Dallas Zoo, toured a tank museum at Ft. Hood, and went shopping A LOT!

The best part of the trip was seeing my family. I haven't seen my little sister since October and I missed my niece "sweet cheeks" like you would not believe. I don't get to see my Aunt but once every few years so it was so nice to see her. Here are some of the pics from our trip.

--Can you even believe how BIG my Zachary has gotten? Sometimes I look at him and it just amazes me that he is so big!

Well, that is all that I have for now. I am working on constructing an actual post :) I have a few ideas about a few things I want to talk about, but I have a few more things to sort out first.

Talk to you guys later!
