Christmas pictures

Here are some pictures we took around Christmas time. My parents came down for a week and we had a lot of fun. The kids absolutely loved Christmas. The older they get the more fun it is. Jessica and Joshua were funny to watch because they did things so differently. Joshua was happy after one gift and just wanted to play with it and forget about all the other gifts. But once Jessica realized there was more than one she just kept ripping them open one right after another until she was opening up other people's gifts too! Of course, everyone got colds over Christmas cause it just isn't the holidays unless someone gets sick. In fact, on Christmas Day we went over to Joe's family's house. And Joshua (who is teething again) decided to stick all three or fours fingers in his mouth and gag himself and threw up! Joe said he had a hunch someone would hurl since it was Christmas! hahaha. Anyway, it was a wonderful holiday and I am so grateful for my family. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas too! P.S. Thanks to all who sent cards. I decided to make cards this year to send out...don't be alarmed if you didn't receive one. It is not the post office's fault nor did we stop loving or caring about you. I am just a nerd and spent so much time making the cards that I did not leave time to send them out before Christmas...what a nut I am!

I did it!

So, many of you may know that I am not a fan of bugs. I can handle dealing with bugs and spiders that come into the house by just squishing them like crazy. Well, let's just say that I have a pretty big fear of scorpions...I can't stand them! In the past Joe has always been home to kill them, but not today. So, I started out my day by killing a scorpion. I must admit it took me a few minutes to get a grip and just do it, but I finally did it! Whew! I hate those things!

What a nut!

Don't faint! I know it has been awhile since we have added anything to our blog, so it is time to catch up. Joe is back in school and working hard. He has some lectures but most of his time is spent in the simulation lab. He is also now assissting some of the 3rd and 4th year students in the clinic which I think he will really enjoy.

The kids are doing well. Joshua's new faves are corn and mashed potatoes as you will see in the pics. He has also started a new thing where he loves to wear his sunglasses 24/7. He wears them outside, inside, while eating, and even when he goes to bed sometimes! He turns two tomorrow! I can't believe it. Jessica has imaginary friends. Not your average boy or girl friends, but kitty cats and superheroes. Those are the two main ones that she talks to. Poor Joshua never know when he is going to get told "Don't sit on the superheroes. Don't hurt them." They are both really into superheroes of all kinds. In our house you can often hear "to infinity and beyond" or "to the rescue" being shouted with arms outstretched like they are flying. It is so cute! Noah is doing well. He is starting to smile more and more each day.

I included a picture of when we went to Superior, AZ and went looking for apache tears. Can you tell we have fair skin? I know it looks like we burnt to a crisp but we didn't, we were just really, really hot! The kids had a lot of fun digging in the dirt and rocks and we finally found a handful of them (it is a kind of obsidian). I hope to be better about posting things and doing so be patient!

Noah smiled for the first time today!

It is not an average day unless a mess has been made, and today Jessica and Joshua did a top notch job! Let's just say that momma was a little upset when she saw that they had gotten into the honey and dumped a whole honey bear container all over the couch . It looks like they sure enjoyed themselves though with all of the handprints and footprints everywhere!

Little Noah is getting more alert and more hungry as the hours pass. This is him after his first sponge bath at home.

Jessica and Joshua got new church clothes! Jessica is sporting a lovely homemade dress created by her Grandma Bradshaw. Joshua leisures in cheap Walmart sunglasses to go along with his new slacks and white shirt and ties combo from Burlington Coat Factory, the only place in the U.S. that still sells Sunday clothes for little boys.

Here are the pictures of our newest edition! Noah Richard Bradshaw was born on July 26th at 10:37 pm. He weighed in at 6 pounds 15 ounces, and is 19 3/4 inches long. We're really excited to have him in our family. Jessica and Joshua included, we all are grateful and pleased with the blessing of Noah.

Joe just finished his National Board Dental Exam Part I yesterday morning. He won't get his scores until possibly a couple of weeks from now, but he thinks he did well. All of that studying had better pay off! Christi is ready for the next little boy to be born. The due date isn't until August 2nd, but the doctor said she wouldn't stop the baby if he came now, so our excitement just keeps building to meet the new addition to our family. Jessica has learned so many phrases that she can say just about anything that she wants to, plus more. She is a big help to her mom most of the time, and shows her independence and leadership skills whenever she can. Here she's getting a rare solitary drive-in movie while Joshua is napping. Joshua is trying to copy everything she says and does, right down to the little nuances of toddler attitude. We've started to stand the kids against the wall when they get into trouble, and so far, it works great for discipline.

Luke Day

These pictures are some that were taken during the Bradshaw Family Reunion 2007 this past March. We all went to Luke Days' Air Show at Luke Air Force Base. Joe ran into some old friends from high school, Kevin Diefenderfer and Sterling Barrett. The kids had a pretty good time, as always when there are snacks and a free ride in the stroller. A stealth bomber flew over unannounced as we were getting ready to leave making for a great finish for the show (for us at least: the show continued for a few more hours after we left). The whole day was a blast.
