Valentine's Day!

On Friday, Feb. 12, both the kids had Valentine's Day parties at their schools. I was one of the party mom's for Susan's class, so I wasn't able to be there for all of Will's class party. Both kids exchanged Valentine's with their classmates and participated in fun activities.

In Susan's class, each of the kids got to decorate their own Valentine's cake.

Susan and I made it to the very end of Will's party. Will was enjoying his Valentine's cake.

After school, we headed to the local Chic Fil A with a few of the kids from Will's class. While we were there, the kids all got to meet the Chic Fil A Cow!

Will's 5th Birthday Party

For Will's 5th birthday, he wanted a dinosaur themed party. The kids dug for dino fossils in the sandbox and made dino sand art. The fun really started when the Reptile Guys arrived with animals in tow. Despite a rainy day and power outage, all the kids had a great time!

No party is complete without a pinata!

As the birthday boy, Will was chosen to assist the Reptile Guys with all of the animals. He was so excited!

The biggest hit of the party was Mello Yello- a 9ft yellow python!

Snow Jam 2010

The snow starting falling Friday around 1 pm and continued into the night. Will and I went out and played in the snow and built a snowman. Susan was so tired after we got home from school that she passed out on the couch for a nap.

We woke up Saturday morning to a white, winter morning with the sun rising over the trees. The kids were both ready to go out at 7 am but I wasn't too eager- it was 24 degrees outside. Later, I went out and took these pictures. As I write this, the kids are getting dressed and we are going to head outside for some fun! Below is a picture from our front yard looking out at Tom's rental house.
This is a picture of our lot next door. You can see the kids playhouse and the garage.

Donuts for Dads

Today at Will's school they honored the dads with "Donuts for Dads" day.  Will was soooo excited that his daddy got to be with him at school.  The kids had made ties for the dads to wear and had prepared a few other special surprises for them

Here is George sporting his tie.

Will and daddy enjoying their donuts.

Daddy opening his gift.  The kids painted picture frames and then drew a picture of something they liked to do with their dad to go in the frame.  Will drew a picture of he and his dad at the beach.

Mommy crashing the party.
The kids had also learned 2 songs that they sang for the dads.  This is Will showing daddy how to do the hand motions to the song "My heart belongs to daddy."  I know that Will will remember this day for a long time.  He never stopped smiling.
