Today is Mommy and Alysha's Birthday ...

Today Grammy and Papa took us to the "Boat House" restaurant (yummy) after church to celebrate me and my niece Alysha's birthday. I turned 33 this year and Alysha turned 8. She was born on the exact same day as me! A lot of people think she could be my daughter too...she sort of looks like me (poor thing). Later that evening we went to her house for her birthday party. She had a basketball themed birthday. It was a good time. It has been a very long time since I have been able to celebrate my birthday in Indiana. It was a great birthday present for me...I love spending time with family.

Indiana visit...

This weekend we left to go to Indiana. We met Grammy and Papa in Indianapolis and picked them up from the Triton State Basketball game and then stopped at Chucky Cheese on the way to their house. The kids had a blast! This was our first experience at Chucky Cheese and one we will not forget. The kids loved it (I think Grammy and Papa had just as much fun)! After that we made our way to Papa and Grammy's house. We have no certain time we have to be back so we are gonna have fun!

Busy, Busy, Tooth Fairy...

This morning Elijah woke up to find that the tooth fairy had brought him $2.00 and left him another letter. He is sure keeping the tooth fairy really busy! He got a toy and $2.00 for the first tooth because it was such a special tooth and the second tooth he got money only. We went to Target and bought a small Star Wars Lego kit with the tooth fairy money. It was just burning in his pocket and he had to go spend it. He knew exactly what he wanted to get too. He looks so cute with two missing teeth.

Elijah Pulled His Second Tooth Out....

Tonight before bed Elijah was determined to get his second tooth out. He really wanted the tooth fairy to come again tonight. After about 20 minutes of tugging....he finally pulled his second tooth out. He was so excited to use his tooth pillow again tonight and couldn't wait till morning to see what the tooth fairy would bring this time....

The Tooth Fairy Visited Elijah....

The tooth fairy visited us last night! Elijah was so excited to put his tooth he lost in the new tooth pillow we made and put the tooth pillow under his regular pillow. When he woke up he found a new G.I. Joe and $2.00 in the pocket of his tooth pillow! The tooth fairy even wrote him a letter. He was so excited. My little baby boy is growing up way to fast!

Elijah Lost His First Tooth!

Today we realized Elijah's bottom tooth was very loose and we could see the new one coming in. I told him he had to get the old tooth out to give the new tooth space to come in. He was so nervous but said...I will do it mommy. He worked at it for quite awhile. Then he got a wash cloth and finally yanked it out. He was SO excited! He pulled out his first tooth! He can not wait till the tooth fairy comes tonight!

Elijah's First Soccer Practice...

Today Elijah had his first soccer pratice. He is playing in the LMYSA league. He looked so adorable in all his soccer gear! He was a little nervous but got right in there and played. We were so lucky to have such beautiful weather too. Let's hope it stays that way!

Army guys and dollhouses....

Today I was sitting here at the computer and the kids were quietly playing all together. It is not often that this happens in our house. I went to go check on them and they were all playing together and working things out. They were playing with army guys and with the dollhouse. Adrielle wanted Elijah to play dollhouse with her and Elijah wanted Adrielle to play with army men with they worked it out! Even little Ezra joined in the fun and the other two didn't mind. Too funny! I love to see them all play together and compromise like this!

Off to Pre-school she goes!

We can't believe that we only have a little over 2 months left of pre-school. Time flies by! She has learned and grown so much this school year. I thought Adrie looked so cute , I just had to take a picture. Daddy was getting ready to take her to school today and she was waiting by the door for him to take her. She just loves school and can't wait to go. I hope it stays like that for her!

Today we spent more time outside. Ezra's new thing is to point to every airplane (or sometimes birds) in the sky and screams (and I mean scream..) "brr-pane!" (That is Ezra's way of saying airplane). He gets so excited! He loves airplanes right now (notice his "arr-pane" shirt he is wearing). So cute to see him explore the world outside. I love his age right now. Just so curious about everything. The kids all had a fun time playing outside. We love these touches of spring time weather...can't wait till it stays warmer.

What a beautiful Day!!!

Today was just so pretty outside so I decided to plan a special day for the kiddos. Daddy is on Lay-off again this week, so he got to come too! We had some errands to run and then Will and I surprised the kids by taking them to Cottell Park in Mason. They love this park. It is fairly new and we haven't been there very often. We also packed our lunch and had a picnic. We had a great time. After the fun at the park, we went to the Mason Library and read books and checked out lots of books and movies to take home. What a great day. I love spending the day just with our fun!

Adrielle and Gus part 2...

Adrielle got to bring gus home from preschool again... here is what they did together this time (this is also what we wrote in Gus's journal)...

Adrielle had another fantastic time with Gus. She was so excited when she came out of class Tuesday! Her mommy was watching her friends Joshua and Laura for the day. Laura and Adrielle played with Gus when they got home and they watched a movie together. Gus really liked all of Adrielle’s new toys from Christmas and her birthday.
On Wednesday Gus got to go to story time at the library with Adrielle and her brother Elijah. They read a book and talked about the letter “S”. They also made a neat craft. Gus really liked story time. Gus even helped Adrielle pick out some neat books at the library to borrow and bring to her house. Later in the day Adrielle also took Gus to the park with her. It was a warm and sunny day. It was almost like spring time weather. Gus really liked being outside.
Each night Gus got to sleep in Adrielle’s baby doll crib. He loved it. He said it was so comfortable. Adrie tucked him in and gave him lots of hugs and kisses. Adrielle had a great time with Gus and he will be greatly missed. Thanks for visiting our family Gus!
