Super busy, FUN day

Today Christopher and I went to see a movie (Kung Fu Panda) It was pretty cute but I am not sure Christopher liked it too much b/c he slept through the whole thing which was good b/c I got to watch it and enjoy it. We came home and hung out for a while and then headed to the Cherub Clubhouse to take something to drop off and then we headed to meet Alicia and Hadley at Chuck E Cheese. Christopher has only been 1 time with Aunt LeLe and I and you would have thought he was a pro. He ran all over the place, rode on the rides (which he wouldn't do last time), went to see Chuck E. when he came out (which he wouldn't do last time), climbed up in the tunnels (which he wouldn't do last time). We are pizza and danced and I think the kids had a great time.

sweet boys

Briana and Ben came over on Tuesday and the boys had such a good time playing together. Usually Christopher pulls some sort of shananagans and is ugly to Ben but not this time. They played so good together with a few minor exceptions. We watched tv, played, ordered pizza and had a good time visiting with them. When it was time for them to leave they gave each other a big ol hug. Aren't they sweet?

Up to something

On Monday we went to meet Alicia, Hadley, Lynn and John Thomas for lunch. The kids had a good time jumping in the booths and watching monster trucks on Lynns ipod. I did not really get any good pictures of the kids but they had a good time and I am more than sure the restaurant was happy to see us leave. After lunch we went to Lynns house for the kids to play outside and they had a blast. I would have had a bunch of pictures from over there but my battery died. We stayed over there until early in the evening and then headed home to get daddy packed up to leave to go out of town again.

Baby Ali Marie

My friend Amber had a baby a few weeks ago and was in town so Christopher and I took off to see her. She is such a cutie and it is soooo hard to remember Christopher being that small. Of course I was a nervous wreck the whole time b/c I never know what Christopher is going to do. He was good with her and would touch her piggies and even tried to sneak in a kiss here and there. It was great to see them b/c I have not seen Amber in over 4 years and knowing us back in "our" day you would never have imagined us with children. Guess we are all grown up now

My boys

Aren't they cute?

My BIG boy

Well I can not say that we are starting potty training but I can say we are purchasing some items to help with the process. We went to Target the other day and they had some Choo Choo underwear on clearance so I snagged them. Christopher LOVES wearing them even though he is wearing them over a diaper. Today we went to Buy Buy Baby and bought a small potty to fit on the big potty and a stool to step on. They were both "cool cars" I asked Christopher if he was going to tee tee and poo poo on the potty and he very quickly said "NO" Well at least we are off to a good start.

Hanging out

Today our good friends that we never get to see came to visit. Monica and I have not talked in several months and we picked up where we left off. I love friendships like that. Ella Claire and Christopher had a good time playing with each other once they got warmed up to each other. I am pretty sure Christopher got on Ella Claires nerves asking her to play "cool cars" with him. They played, we attempted to take them to the pool, they ate, they played some more, they fought, we sewed, we talked, we went to eat mexican we just had an all around good time. They are out for the summer months so I really hope we can get the kids together more often to play. Of course neither one of them would cooperate at the same time so the pics are not good but trust me that they had fun.

I have been thinking about taking Christopher to the movies lately to see how he does, but didn't want to waste the money going, if we had to leave early b/c of him acting crazy. Today was the day. Our local theater has kiddie movies on Tues and Wed for 3.00 and you get a free popcorn and coke. I figured if we had to leave we would only be out 6 bucks so we headed to the movies this morning. Fortunately, the movie this week was Alvin and the Chipmunks, which we have been watching at home. He did fairly good. Things could have been soooo much worse but they could have been better also. We are popcorn, drank coke and spent our Wed morning with the chipmunks. We may try it again next week but then again I have never heard of the movie that is playing next week so we may not.

Wow what a busy fun weekend. Saturday our city and one of the local churches put on a 4th of July celebration. We loaded up and headed there with our neighbor and his girls. Byran was working so it was just Christopher and I on this venture. they had bouncy houses, which Christopher usually will have nothing to do with, but I guess he had 2 influences today and we could not keep him out of the bouncy houses. After jumping for a while we went back to our blanket and had snacks and cooled off. They played a movie when it got dark but there were so many people there, we couldn't see of hear the movie. Bryan finally made it and he took Christopher to bounce some more. After the movie they shot off fireworks and it was probably one of the best shows I have ever seen. It brought tears to my eyes. Christopher LOVED them. He kept saying "cool beans"
On Sunday, we had our neighbor and his girls come over to play in the pool and us grill out and enjoy the day. We had so much fun, we were outside all day enjoying good friends and good food. When it got dark Bryan got the fireworks out and put on his own fireworks show for us. He did a good job this year. He got some really long sparklers that the kids LOVED. Christopher had so much fun today he fell asleep in my arms with the fireworks going off. It was a great day had by all.

pure cuteness

I just took these pictures and they are too cute not to post.

Happy 4th of July

We don't have plans of going anywhere for the 4th. I can not remember when the last time I did not go to Mobile for the 4th was but I know it has been forever. We are keeping it simple this 4th and plan on doing some grilling out, playing in the pool and shooting fireworks. We hope that everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July. Here are some pics of my little monster and some of his friends at a 4th of July playgroup we went to on Friday. (check out the cheeks on Baby Brennan- he is the cutest thing and I can not get enough of his cheeks).

funny boy

While we had Aunt LeLe here this week we have been super busy. We have shopped, shopped and shopped some more. We did stay home for a few days to relax and sew. Here is a picture of Christopher eating a pop with Mr Potato head glasses on. He looks like a little old man.

Good friends

My sister came in town this past Sunday to spend her vacation with us. We already had plans to meet up with Alicia and Hadley so after speech we headed to lunch. I love watching these two grow up together and so glad we get them together for "lunch dates" We wnjoyed lunch and got a few pics of the two of them. Of course when one would cooperate the other would not but here are some cuties.
