Chuck E Cheese, "Where a Kid can be a Kid"

Today, Ashley and I took the kids to Chuck E Cheese. We loaded into Ashley's car and off we went. The kids were really well behaved and they all seemed to have a great time. We won some tickets and cashed them in for a bunch of junky toys, but that is what Chuck E Cheese is all about! Ashley spilled an iced coffee on herself but that really was the only mishap we could not leave that little bit out, sorry Ashley!I was totally amazed that Sophia and Colton could play air hockey, it was impressive. Everyone except Fletcher loved the clock that you could ride on. Fletcher enjoyed putting coins in the slots. The pizza was actually pretty good. All in all everyone had a great time!

A new Do!

Sophia finally agreed to get her hair cut, THANK GOD!!!! It was really long and she was chewing on it. I lover her hair short she looks so cute. Aunt Jules bought Sophia a flower making kit and she sat and made flowers for a couple of hours on Sunday and then we put one in her new hair do!


Who knew that pull ups could double as hats? The kids thought this was hillarious, they had pull ups on their heads for about an hour!

Birthday Boy

Fletcher is now 2 years old. I cannot believe it, He seems like such a big kid all of the sudden. On Saturday we had his party. He had a Thomas cake and balloons, all of the kids seemed to have fun and James and I were exhausted so it must have been a success!

Fletcher's Preschool Diary

Day 1 : Scream fest, apparently he screamed for 7 hours on and off and Sophia screamed for 3, like sister like brother. Fletcher sat in Miss Mary's office for most of the day!

Day2: Fletcher went to Nanny Vopals, Sophia went to Grandma Karens house! I just did not have the heart to send them back after they screamed all day!

Day3: Slight improvement! Fletcher did not scream as much, Sophia only screamed for 1/2 an hour and they both napped! Fletcher did not tell me he cried when I asked him what he did at school!

DAY 4 : D DAY! Fletcher screamed until he puked! He stayed until about 11:00, the preschool called Kim and then Ashley. Ashley was the only one with enough car seats so she picked him up and took him to her house! Thanks to good friends my baby was safe! Fletcher napped for 2 hours at Ashley's.

SOLUTION: Fletcher will not be going back to preschool for at least another year, I think he is too little!

Puddle Jumper

Fletcher was on a mission and no matter how many times we said no he was bound and determined to go through the puddle. He ended up soaking wet and cold but he did not care one bit!

These are just some more pictures from outside today. Fletcher looks so grown up and Sophia was riding her bike like a pro. Fletcher was not so great at peddling so he hitched a ride with Sophia!

Warm Weather

It was almost 55 degrees outside today and we took advantage of the nice weather. The kids colored with chalk and rode bikes. I took the dog for a walk without a hat and gloves. All in all it was a nice day!

Sophia and her tongue

Sophia has special skill, she can touch her tongue to her nose. The other day she was being a ham and showing off. Fletcher unfortunately did not inherit this talent!
