cheetos, zoo, & tortillas

While M is still not a chatterbox, he does choose to speak about the important issues in life, such as "CHEETOS, MOM." Cheetos are dear to my heart because they were in the picnic lunch packed by Scott on our very first date...and again on the day he proposed. I hadn't eaten any in a very long time, but I bought some yesterday...WOW, I had forgotten how cheesy-crunchalicious they are! So now when M says, "CHEETOS, MOM," I'm inclined to oblige!

M and I went to the zoo. Had the place to ourselves. We took his zoo book, and he enjoyed looking up the animals we encountered!

This morning we attempted to make homemade tortillas. If I am going to grow old in the desert, I need to learn the staples of southwest living. I think our breakdown occured at the kneading stage when M decided to roll out our dough balls into snakes. Needless to say, we ended up with some pretty tough tortillas.

OH MY GOSH!!!!!! How cute is M! I just want to squeeze him right through my screen!!! Love the little video - so cute to hear his sweet voice! "CHEETOS MOM!" Now that is my kinda boy!!! Have you tried the Natural Cheetos??? They are cheesy-licious!!!! Seriously they are so much better than the "bad ones". Yum - I think I am getting a craving - may have to run to the store and down an entire bag after the kids go to sleep!!!

The pictures are AWE.SOME. You get better and better all the time - pretty soon you will be rockin' it with J*!! :) I love the ones of M in the dough with the floury face. He is so kissable!!!

What a fun day! Rebecca is right those Natural Cheetos are scrumptious! Confession: I ate an entire bag of them when I was pregnant with Elizabeth while watching Pride & Prejudice. You know if I had some in front of me, I'd probably do the same thing!

Your pictures are great. You have some great angles.
