A Very Melton Christmas and Happy New Year!

'Twas a beautiful Christmas in the Melton household,
Twinkly lights on the Christmas Tree - "Don't touch!" mama did scold.
The stockings were hung by mama with care,
Filled with surprises and sweet treats - "Don't peak - don't you dare!"
Granny, Grandad and Uncle Ben were nestled all snug in their beds,
While Pauly was dreaming and comfy in his new threads.
And daddy with his nose in a book,
Little mama observing, taking one last peering look,
Gifts graced the bottom of the tree all a scatter,
While snowflakes were falling outside - to the ground they did flatter,
A great feast was planned for tomorrow's big bash,
There will be pies, ham with yummy potatoes ala mash,
All woke Christmas morning with happy good cheer,
Beautiful gifts for all! So shed not a tear,
Time to call Mimi and Papa and thank them for all,
Sisters, Grandmas and Grandpas we made sure to call.
The next few days we waited and paced,
Finally the door bell rang to the back door we raced,
The Southards had arrived to help bring in the New Year,
We're so thankful to have our beautiful family here,
Playing games, taking pictures and staying up late,
laughing and crying and taking note of 2008.
Here comes the New Year - Can you believe it's '09?
Tacos for everyone! All night we shall dine!
God bless all that we love here and a far
We love you more than the moon and the counts of the star!

an update of sorts...

Well as always I have a lot of catching up to do! So frustrated with this
darn computer situation. So still the same our computer needs fixed and
the one we borrowed does not let me work on my blog :( So sad!
Because I totally am raring to work on this darn thing and
can't even change my background of anything... and this doesn't
have anything to do with my blog but someone stole my bike!
JERKS! I'm so bummed out! I loved my bike!
No... I hadn't rode it in years but whatever.
JERKS! I think Pauly and I will go for a drive and go look for it...
Someone has it around here I bet. Someone who was walking by
and saw we just keep stuff under our little carport
(No where else to put it!) GOD please send me a garage with my
beautiful green cruiser bike with the precious little basket my
husband bought me for Christmas! Really I've been a good girl!!

Well I haven't updated since just after Halloween!
Well Thanksgiving was awesome! Everyone came!
I felt so spoiled to have both of my sissies at my house
with all my
nieces and nephew and Mimi and Papa... okay okay my
brother-in-laws too! :) We had Thanksgiving dinner at
Aunt Louise's and Uncle Brad's and it was awesome because
Amuma and Papa came from Nevada we're so spoiled!!
We had a great time playing card games and such.

ILoveTheSnow!ILoveTheSnow!ILoveTheSnow!

So now Christmas time is here and I am loving it!
My boy is so adorable walking around... swinging his arms
while he walks because he is just that cool!
He is so precious and I love him so! right now he is
tugging at my shirt and crying so I better close.
I'll write again soon after Christmas and give that
update and hopefully we'll figure out this computer stuff...
Christmas from the Meltons!

Fall has officially arrived!

I love fall it is definitely my favorite season! Although a few weeks ago
Pauly and I woke up to snow that we just had to go and play in -
but that melted away in a day and now we still have fall - THANK GOD!
For the past month I have been fighting with a broken computer and now
we have borrowed a lab top from a friend and it doesn't
allow me to work on my blog from it.
So - luckily we are at Mimi's and Papa's this weekend for fun
and Mimi's lab top lets me work on my blog a little.
Hopefully soon things will be back to normal! Halloween was fun!
We went trick or treating with Aunt CC and Uncle Tenny and Carti too...
Pauly was a little lion and was adorable!!
Hopefully I'll have pictures of that up soon!

Happy Happy Birthday Baby!!!

As most of you know Pauly turned 1 year old on September 6th!
We had a small little party with just family and had a great time!!
The header pictures are from the party.
There are also more pictures following this entry.
He had previously got some gift certificates to Baskin Robins
from his Auntie Holly so that is where we went to get the cake.
It was delicious and Pauly got to eat his own piece all by himself!
Then I made him and Anastasie little hats for the occasion that
they wore. Paul's was a sailboat and Anastasie's was flowers.
He got a cookie jar shape toy from his Granny and 30 blue and
yellow balloons and a little red wagon from Mimi and Papa.
Then Mama and Daddy got him a train set and Anastasie, Uncle Brad
and Aunt Louise brought him a camouflaged shirt and a little stuffed bird
that makes a sound (Daphnie loves it ;) Amuma and Papa sent him
an outfit that is adorable and perfect and his best bud Phoebe brought
him a little sign for his door that says 'Pauly' on it and some blocks.
He got phones calls from everyone that couldn't make it including
his favorite Auntie Kelly who he is on the phone with below.
Turned out to be a pretty perfect birthday 1st birthday for him!
Enjoy the pics :) !!

Then Auntie Kelly came to town...

Pauly's Auntie Kelly (on the left - isn't she beautiful) came to town a couple weeks ago! All the way from Homer, AK. She brought Pauly's cousins LeaAnn and Nathan. We had so much fun! We visited and visited and visited! We went to the horse races and Pauly got to spend lots of time with them! Lucky Nathan got to stay for an extra week and we went swimming and went to the Western Idaho Fair (Nathan had a lot of fun petting the animals :) Okay, okay, it was mostly for Pauly, Granny & Grandad and me :) But we had a blast and we are so thankful they came to visit. Here are just a couple pics... WE LOVE YOU GUYS! and THANK YOU FOR COMING TO SEE US!!!!!!!

I love taking pictures!

Here are a few of here and there that have turned out good. So what... I can't stop taking pictures of my kid and nieces and nephew - Don't blame me! They're precious! (I didn't take this one of Bailey but I cropped it and turned it b/w - So awesome!) She's beautiful just like her mama :)











Summarizing Summer Fun So Far!

Well I've fallen out of the practice of updating the blog so bare with me while I get back in the swing of it. I have lots of fun pictures to share about our first summer with our little guy.

This first picture is one of Pauly and Daddy sitting at our good friends Patrick and Heather's house. We spent the 4th of July with them. When mama needed a breather daddy took Pauly and sat him up on the counter and there he sat with his arm around his daddy for at least an hour and a half. It was precious! Thanks Heather and Patrick for a great 1st 4th of July with our little guy. You two are great hosts!

Then off we went up to Camp Morrison for a week. It was a lot of fun and we got to meet new people and go for nature walks. Here is Pauly wearing his Daddy's head lamp. We did a lot of interesting things to help our day pass. This is a picture of Ben and Pauly sitting outside our cabin at Boy Scout Camp. It was a really beautiful location and was very close to the Payette Lake.
Once we got home we had to figure out a way to get cooled off. So off we went to Ivy Wild and this was Pauly's first time swimming. He loved it and now when we go swimming he scrunches up his face and acts like he wants to put his head under the water. (His father taught him how to breathe out when he goes under water, it is so cute!!)
A regular hot summer day at home with mama has usually been consisting of waking up at about 8 a.m. where Pauly lounges around and eats and plays for a couple hours. Then if it is a warm day we put out the tarp on the front lawn and Pauly plays on the tarp in the blow up elephant sprinkler with his bath toys! It is a nice way to cool off and mama usually gets great pictures of her little monster! Then lunch and nap time for a few hours then (on the perfect day) he wakes up to his daddy just getting home from a hard day's work and the play time begins again!









Lots to catch up on!

I'll soon get back in the swing of updating this weekly or atleast more than I do now :)

My Boys are so handsome!

Granny and Grandad live in my town!

Yep! Granny and Grandad MOVED TO BOISE!!! (Ben's mom is Lena and her husband is named Ben... that is right she married a Ben... it is a little confusing but fun! :) Last weekend we waited and waited for them to arrive and finally on Sunday afternoon they got here! We are so thankful they live in our same town and we are loving every minute of it! Pauly went right to them as if he knew just who they were. He loves on them so sweetly, it is really precious. He especially loves to play with Granny's earrings and when Grandad popped his teeth out at him, he was amazed! It was hysterical!

Playing around!

Pauly was playing around in his walker the other day and I was doing my regular cleaning and I ran onto these goggles that Anastasie gave him and I put them on him. Doesn't he look like the perfect little ski bum?
Then we were playing outside and I wanted to finish up some pictures on my film and I got this one of Pauly and Dapher-doo.

Hansen Family came for brunch!

A couple weekends ago the Hansen Family came to visit and had brunch with us. Pauly got to play with one of his best girls, Alandra. Pauly was born only 6 days before Alandra came along. Aren't they precious playing together? They are quite the pair! Teresa (Alandra's mama) and I are realizing our days are numbered as far as how many we have left before these two are cruising to go get into stuff! Jeesh, we don't even want to think about it!

Jump! Jump! Jump!

The other day I was cleaning and I thought it would be nice to put Pauly in his little Jumper he got from his Auntie Roo and cousins Jacob and Joey. He loved it! He jumped for a long time so I thought I better capture the fun he was having in a few pictures so I sat down in the hallway ready to take pictures of him and Daphnie kept getting in my way - so I just would asking her to sit down and every time I said "Daphnie! SIT DOWN!" He just started laughing hysterically. It was so funny! He had so much fun jumping!



Pauly and Phoebe!

This is Pauly with his new girlly friend Phoebe. She is 4 months younger than Pauly and they love to hang out! (Well their mothers make them but anyways...) Isn't she precious :) Below also there is a picture of her and her mom - Heather. We met through Ben's work and we have bunches of fun together.
Priceless...

Out little Vandal!

Daddy is so proud of his little Vandal! Uncle Raul was in Boise to visit this last weekend and Pauly loved spending time with him! Uncle had no problems making Pauly laugh and was very helpful with taking care of our little guy. We can't wait to go see him in June for his wedding! We also were able to have dinner with one of Ben's other friends Sean and his friend Angel. We had a yummy dinner and enjoyed spending time with our friends!

Easter 2008

Pauly was such a good boy our whole drive to Howe for Easter. We were very excited because we were also able to stop at Jodi and Brian's before they pulled out to their new home in Washington. Here is Aunt Jodi. Scary Huh! Those are actually Easter Eggs. We laughed and laughed because Birch and Pauly just didn't know quite what to think of it. Once we got to Mimi and Papa's, Pauly was able to put in a lot of time playing with one of his best girls Macarti Rae. She is such a little entertainer! Macarti was also dedicated to the Lord on Easter Sunday. We were so glad we were able to be there!How lucky Pauly was to get a tub time in Mimi's sink! Those were good times when you could get bathed in the sink. Remember that? I totally do - so much fun!

Then bad luck struck all of us and we all got seriously ill with the stomach flu! First it was Pauly then he gave it to EVERYONE! Luck was on our side a little because we were at Grandma Pattie and Grandpa Bill's when we were sick - now how bad can that really be :) Easter 2008 will always be remembered.

Growing Like a Weed... WITH TEETH!

Some of you might already know but Pauly got his first tooth on March 17th! and then within a week he had another. They are cute as can be and both on the bottom. He isn't one to show them off yet and he hates it when mom tries to sneak a peak. He is approx. 23 lbs and we aren't sure how tall but he seems like a huge kid already! Ben always asks me how our toddler is doing! He also is in size 12 month clothing and pretty soon he'll be out of that :) INSANE I tell ya!!

Big Boy haircut for Pauly!

Pauly was getting a little scraggly and started to look like he was getting a mullet... Mom just couldn't have that so one evening (and this was before the big skin issue) I sat him up on the kitchen table in his Bumbo (like a booster seat) and gave him a hair cut! He is so handsome!

This is before...
and After! He was such a big kid to sit so good for mama and get his first haircut!
