Mikey Mess Maker

I know I've already done three posts today, but I couldn't resist this one. While I was posting random pictures and trying to update everyone, this is what Mikey was doing....

We are trying to teach him to clean up as well, not just destroy.

My Little Prince

We have this book shelf in our front room and Mikey used to go to it and take off every single book. We have since broke him of this habit but he still goes and gets one book off the shelf. The funny thing is, it's the same book every time. I tested him and put it in different places and he finds it every time. It's pretty funny. The book is The Little Prince. I think it suits him!

Here's video of him doing it. He's actually done it too many times to count. I know it's boring video...but it's proof!

The Usual

So, I haven't posted in a while because nothing much really ever goes on here. But, I have some cute pictures of Mikey so I thought I'd post a couple of the usual going ons here at the Creel house.

Mikey loves to play with our barstools.

Some times not as much as others : )

I just like this picture... he looks so old to me.

Michael taught him how to play catch. He's getting pretty good at the throwing part.

Mikey loves sitting at the computer and watching videos of himself. I have a vain child.

Mikey loves to read books with mommy, especially before bedtime.

Michael and Mikey cuddling in the morning.

Mikey making his daily mess.

We were watching The Office on the computer because we had missed an episode and I thought this was too cute to not take a picture. They are SO much alike!

Have a good week!

Ode To Good Friends...

A friend of mine got me thinking back on a lot of memories from high school and I had to mention a couple friends that I didn't before. These girls and I spent many hours laying out, eating popsicles and having a ton of fun. Love you guys!

Me, Lynsi, Brandy and Natalie

A-Z Tag and a Little More

My aunt tagged me and I'm sorry it took me forever, but here goes:

A - Attached or single?Attached for eternity to the best person ever!

B - Best friend?I have best friends from different categories in life. First category: the people I talk to everyday without fail…my husband, Michael, and my sister, Andrea. Second category: Mesa: Tiffany Dansie. Third Category: College, USU: Nicole Barker, BYU: Melissa Keegan. Fourth Category: Highschool: Lynsi Thuerer, Marjolaine Daines, Tracy Brandt, Jen Jones, Erin Patch…okay, maybe I should stop now. I love my friends!

C - Cake or pie? Easy, cake! I hate pie crust. D - Day of choice? I like any day that Michael has off of work or that Mikey takes a real nap.

E - Essential item? Chapstick. Everyone in my life will tell you I’m addicted.

F - Favorite color? I’m not too original, but it’s pink, really.

G - Gummy bears or worms?I like both of them, especially when they are chocolate covered. I have a huge sweet tooth!

H - Hometown?Providence, UT

I - Indulgences?Reading and ice cream.

J - January or July?It used to be July, but now that we’ve moved to Mesa and it’s so hot here, January is like July in Utah, so I’m starting to prefer it.

K - Kids?One, Mikey, and he is almost one! Crazy!

L - Life isn't complete without?My family, friends and a good book/movie.

M - Marriage date?March 4, 2006.

N - Number of brothers and sisters?Two sisters- Andrea and AlyssaOne brother and brother-in-law- Craig and Jonathan

O - Oranges or apples?Apples because I hate peeling oranges.

P - Phobias or fears?I’m afraid of being home alone or of losing friends or family.

Q - Quote?"There is no such thing in anyone's life as an unimportant day." Alexander Woollcott

R - Reason to smile?When my two boys give me kisses!

S - Season of choice?I love the fall when I have leaves to see and summer when I have a pool/lake/ocean to swim in.

T - Tag seven:Angie, Erin, Brandy, Mala, Ashley(both of you : ),Connie

U - Unknown fact about me?I hate the bottoms of drinks. I dump the milk, juice, soda, ect because I won’t drink it.

V - Vegetable?For how much I love vegetables, I should really eat them more. I love asparagus, broccoli, green beans, corn, tomatoes…I could go on forever. I basically love them all except celery…and I can force down carrots.

W - Worst habit?Lately, it’s been biting my nails. I have to keep them cut short.

X - X-ray or ultrasound?Ultrasounds are great except for the goop you have to wash off for forever afterwards.

Y - Your favorite food?Mmmm…I love food. I love Mexican food. I probably eat a bean and cheese burrito every day. But I guess my favorite food is really anything home-cooking-esque. Such as, roast, steak, turkey steaks, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, veggies, homemade cake or brownies…I love it!

Z - Zodiac sign?I’m a Leo and it totally fits me all the way. I married a Leo too…not supposed to be good, but it works for us!

And...because every post isn't a post without a picture of Mikey, here he is. These are his new pajamas. They glow in the dark and sadly enough, we think they are cooler than he does : o )

Mommy Merit Badges

There are certain events that occur in a mother's life that earn her, what I call, Mommy Merit Badges. I have received my "Sleepless Night" badge, my "Get Puked on Over Twenty Times" badge and my "Find What the Baby Wants to Eat and Not Spit Out" badge. My favorite badges are the "Got a Kiss" badge and the "Hugs Goodnight" badge. I have now received the "Child Rolls Out the Toilet Paper" badge. I am so proud!

Mornings With Mikey

Mikey is so cute in the mornings. Well, all the time, but you know what I mean. He makes waking up early easy.
