Boys Are Funny and I Need To Get Out Of The House

So, potty training is going well. He still has accidents, but he's doing #1 and #2 in the potty most of the time. He has taken to hating clothes when we're in the house, so I'm getting alot of good pics of the boy in his underpants!! Santa had sent a present for Michael to open once he was using the potty, he sent CARS underpants!!! I thought Michael was going to have a little heart attack he was so excited!!!!
We made Valentine's Cookies last Thursday and Michael had a great time. Obviously, a little stressful to me, but he loved it!!!He was also easy to clean up, since all he was wearing was his underpants:)
This is a picture of Michael's first outing in big boy underpants. We went to the Post Office and then to the swan pond. It was actually 55 degrees outside. Now it's 23 degrees.....ugggggg And yes, that is ice around the fountain. I have no clue why they don't turn it off in the winter..
Our Valentine's Day weekend was terrific. We went out to a nice cheap dinner on Friday night, me and my boys. Michael is finally to a point where he does pretty well at a casual restaurant. Saturday, I woke up to Michael screaming "Happy Valentine's Day!!!" and Dunkin Donuts. The rest of the day was spent just hanging out around the house and playing. Geoff made a wonderful dinner of miniature gourmet cheeseburgers, crab cakes and hummus (he bought the hummus and I actually liked it, the first kind I've ever liked) and he made me strawberry shortcake for dessert. Sunday was more just hanging out and enjoying every one's company. We had a very nice weekend:) Can you tell my boys are happy? I love seeing them together like this, It seriously makes my heart melt!
We went to McDonald's yesterday to meet a new friend. it feels like I've known her forever and I can tell that we're going to be close. We had a great time watching Michael play in the playplace and chatting. It took about 5 minutes for Michael to warm up to Miss Marcia, but once he saw that she brought him trucks, he was hooked. he even woke up this morning saying we had to go visit Miss Marcia. So lovely when he likes someone!!!!!I meant to get pictures of the outing, but I got a little caught up, so I didn't get any. Next time I will, I promise:)
Last thing. Christina and I have been working on a crochet blocks blanket for our MIL since Christmas of 2007. I think we may actually finish it by our fishing trip this year. All that is left to do is connect the blocks....Here's what it looks like on my front room floor:)
