Polka Dot Boy

My poor baby boy got sick over a month ago with an eye infection. Eight days later it cleared up and was soon replaced with a cold. That cleared up and then came an ear infection. As we were on vacation, we went to urgent care and got a prescription for Amoxicillin. Go figure, five days later he broke out in red spots all over his face, tummy, back, okay so his whole body was covered. Yeah, he’s allergic to the stuff. So back to urgent care we went, now in Mexico. He’s looking much much better after 48 hours. He’s been a total champ through it all too. Hardly complains about any of the past crappy weeks. Here are a few pics of him and his polka dots.

Merry Mexican Christmas!

This last weekend Ryan and I headed downtown for a date. We went to see the lights and displays they put up in the plazas. It's pretty much the same every year, but it's still so fun to me. I thought I better share a blog about it though... cause I feel like it is so typical of the culture. One interesting part about it is that they include, in one of their scenes, Adam and Eve in the garden. In another scene, they have Hell. Interesting. I suppose they would like us to think about the fall and how Satan tempts us, and how we must use the atonement of Christ. I kinda like how they include different Biblical parts because I really does make you think about why we celebrate the birth of Christ and what it all means from a grander perspective.
Though, I totally admit that seeing Satan on his thrown with his imps and fire is pretty startling to see so nearby the gentle nativity scene.
I took some pictures, but only with a camera phone.

Satan on his throne

Another interesting scene is the one below, depicting a family of Mexicans with the pinata. Apparently, the Pinata with the nine points represent nine sins. Then you beat the sins with a stick till it is destroyed and you finally receive your small gifts and candy. That's where the whole pinata thing came from I guess.

Crap stupid blog erased the photo, ill upload it in a min. ...

Faces of Bool...

I love Easton's faces and expressions! I couldn't resist a blog post of these sweet gems, which I came across while weeding out our family photos.... Enjoy! These are in no particular order.

This last video isn't about expressions, but rather a cute Daddy, Easton bonding moment that I also came across, which I had forgotten about...
Easton is prob about 4-5 mo here!
