What's New with Barry and Bonnie

I joined a Women's Self Defense class a week ago with a Martial Arts instructor. I love it!!! He's teaching me mixed martial arts of self defense as well as attacks. I can even earn my belts if I choose to. I'm not sure yet, but I have already learned how to kick Barry's butt! After 8 years of play wrestling with Barry always pinning me down, I was able to break his hold and win after just one lesson! Cool, huh?

Barry has been devoted to gaining weight and building muscles he's never had before. LOL We take pictures to keep track of his progress and I wanted to post some but I didn't feel comfortable with showing my hubby's nipples on here. So I think this back view will suffice. He's gained almost 30 pounds! Go Barry!

I'll keep you posted on our progress!

Popcorn, a Movie, and a Bellybutton?

Here is a photo op I couldn't pass up. They're watching Madagascar which Jordan likes to add lib along sometimes.

Grandma learning to play the Wii

We had Barry's mom over with the rest of the family and she finally tried out the Wii! It was a lot of fun watching her learn. Sam wanted to sit with her so she attempted to play with Sam's hand on the controller. It was nice having everyone together.
Bro-in-law, Billy, teaching Karen how to move the controller, while Scott, Barry's younger brother watches.

Barry's sister, Lisa and her husband Billy.

Way to go Karen, for keeping up with the kids!

Banana Queen

Love this face!

Jordan Turns 3

Jordan turned 3 years old on Jan. 26th! We had a great party and Karen (Barry's mom) made an awesome cake, yet again! The woman is amazing! I wished I could've gotten more pictures of Jordan, but he wouldn't sit still or smile for that matter. He got his first bike and loved it! We took a video of this, but I'm too lazy right now to wait for it to upload (sorry). The top of the cake is actually a playdough toy that she put on top of her beautiful iced grass. Cool idea isn't it?

Girly from the get go!

So I haven't been quick to getting dresses on Sam till I saw her reaction to some dresses grandma brought over. I had left them hanging over the couch when Sam came over and pulled a little red one down and brought it to me whining and pointing to her chest. I asked, "Do you want to wear this?" and she replied with a determined head nod. So I put it on her and she took off squealing and spinning in the kitchen. I could hardly believe how excited she was about the thing. I wished I could've gotten a video of her first reaction, but these pictures still show the glee on her face. I loved it! I had no idea she was so girly!
