Canning, reading, pottying :)

So, apparently, I have totally decided to stop blogging for awhile....no, it's just with my free hour during nap time, I choose to do other things, but am finally doing a post.... This is Collin trying to look Harry Potter like. Yes, our family is Harry fans.... so good thing Collin was deciding to be one too.
At the park a month or so ago wearing matching shirts.
Hey, who knew I could can green beans from our garden? Hopefully these babies will taste good sometime in the bleak mid-winter.And yes, canned salsa wtih stuff from our garden as well. This salsa is so YUMMY and the woman in our ward who helped me can WHIP out 7 quarts in under 2 hours. She is superwoman.
And Collin now reads a zillion books a day....or wants to be read a zillion books a day. I don't mind. Every week I get the max from the library (30) and you would think this would take 3 weeks to read through? Nope, I have to hold him off to make the list go longer than a couple of days.
Usually he will say "mommy, read" but sometimes he will read on his own and it is really, really cute to me. Yeah for books!
Another thing Collin has discovered with new vigor....
the potty. And yes, for some reason the picture wouldn't turn, and no we aren't quite ready (well, I'm not) for potty training, and yes his legs still don't have any rolls, but yes, he loves the potty.
And I haven't scanned the pictures, but for those who haven't heard, Collin is going to have a baby brother in January! YEAH!

Yay! That's so exciting! I will admit, I was hoping you would have a girl. :) But I'm sure boys are fun too. I wouldn't know. Our side of the family doesn't believe in having boys apparently.
