2008 Recap...a few shots of Connor each month...

JanuaryConnor got a camera for Christmas and one of his New Year's Resolutions was to take more pictures...oh, wait...that was one of mine...His was actually to perfect the cheesy pose!

We went to the Auto Show at the Convention Center where Connor needed to sit in and on EVERYTHING possible!

Here are the boys at Father /Son Game Night at Connor's school.  This was the event I chaired for the PTA this year.  It turned out better than I thought it would.  All the boys seemed to go home happy.

Here are G. Jane (that's what Connor calls her because that's what she's named on our Wii...it doesn't hold enough letters for her to be Grandma Jane...and the G. Jane thing has just sort of stuck) and Connor at the Cub Scout Blue and Gold dinner.  You can see the cake we made in the background.

Here is a close up of the cake we made.  Connor and I spent several days sorting and gluing on candy!

Here are Connor and Cousin Kaylin out in Grammi's backyard after the annual egg hunt.

Connor LOVES chocolate!  Okay, he loves any form of sugar!

Crazy hair day with an attitude.  He was crackin' me up with the hair, the Mythbusters Tshirt and his black Converse!

Here's a close up of one of the stars that I stencilled onto his hair.

One of the Tiger Scout activities was to go to a television studio.  All of the boys (including Sanford) loved that outing!

We went to Little League Night at Petco Park.  I think we actually made it through 3 whole innings...We also made it through hot dogs, soda, popcorn, cotton candy, a few peanuts, some Cracker Jacks, and a beer for Mommy!

We went to Legoland.   Connor really wanted to go for his birthday, but my friend had passes that let us in for free...can't pass that up...so we went a little early.   It was fun, but certainly not worth buying a membership since Connor was the only one that really enjoyed it.   Here he is driving the boat..he also drove a car, a helicopter, a fire truck and his parents crazy!

Connor got to sign the Principal's Pride board at school for doing a great job on a writing assignment.   

Here in a nutshell is the real virtue of being an only child.  You might tend to be just a tad overindulged...but just a little...really!~ For his 7th birthday Connor wanted to go to Sea World.  The membership passports were a real deal at Costco, so we went ahead and bought them as a birthday present.  I thought we might go 2 or 3 times, but with the park being open late nights in the summer  and Sanford having football...okay...weight training  at school, Connor and I went a bunch!  It doesn't hurt that there is the CUTEST stamp store just a few minutes away!

Connor spends a lot of time every summer in Grammi's pool.

Here is Connor on the first day of second grade.  Note the short haircut.  One week before school started, Connor decided to cut his own hair...in the front of course and down to the scalp.  This haircut was the best they could do to fix it.  He was GEL-BOY for quite a while!


Here is Connor with the class mascot wired to his handlebars taking him for a little bike ride.  It is just wonderful to live in a cul-de-sac, especially one with a lot of kids around Connor's age.  There seems to always be someone around to ride bikes or play handball.


Connor was a pirate for Halloween...It was an awesome costume, but all of the pictures are on the laptop.  Here he is after he got his face painted at Sea World.  We are sooo loving those passports that we got for Connor's birthday!


Here is Connor dressed and with his hair done for the play he was in...Aladdin Jr.  He played Prince Baba of Ganoush...who was basically Elvis.  Check out that pout and those lashes...with dark hair, he really would look like a baby Elvis!

Here are Connor and Cousin Kaylin in front of Grammi's tree on Christmas Eve.

Hopefully we'll be a little more timely about posting things as they actually happen this year!
Oh, and maybe I'll learn how to rotate photos so you don't have to turn your head sideways to see the boy!!
