Puppy Party

Big was recently invited to a puppy birthday party for an adorable 3 year old. The whole family was able to go and help her celebrate!

There was yummy food and some very fun games! The kids played pass the puppy, had a barking contest, and pinned the nose on the puppy. There was even a pinata, which I must say these kids have finally figured out. (See last years pinata photo!) This year they got that you should go after the candy.

Last year they all just kind of looked at it and would take a piece at a time!

Little had the most fun clapping when the music stopped in the pass the puppy game!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, with a new do!

When I picked big up from daycare today, he informed me that he needed a hair cut. I tried to tell him that time was limited and that we weren't going to be able to get it cut today, much less this week. He was very insistent that we get this done TODAY!

So I called our normal spot and they had one opening left for the evening. Little badly needs at least his bangs trimmed, but he will have to wait for another day (which I don't think he minds much)! We also got our tree up last night. No decorations on it yet, I'm waiting till we can all do this together. Hopefully tomorrow, it's looking too bare!

Monster Bash Party

Big was invited to a Monster themed 3rd birthday. We couldn't wait to go. Chris was home and able to watch Little, so it was a bit easier to enjoy the party. There were lots of fun things to do.

They had a monster bean bag toss, although all the kids really liked having their photo taken with their head in the monsters mouth.

There was a Build your own monster station. Big liked this so much, he wanted to make a few of them.

A put the eyes on the monster game.

Then all the little monsters got to decorate a cookie.

They had snacks, cupcakes and don't forget about the cute monster party hats! The cups even had eyes on them!

Here are all of the kiddos with their goody bags. What a fun group of kids! I can't wait to pull these photos out when they are all seniors!

Daily Entertainment

When Chris has drill on the weekends, I have to find things to help occupy 2 small boys, so that I get a chance to breath! So this past weekend we broke out some arts and crafts to entertain.

I had just unpacked a box and thought it might be fun for Big to paint it like Rocket from Little Einsteins. We of course had no paint brushes, so before we could even begin this project we had to take a little trip to JoAnns. Which I am never apposed to! An hour later, we were painting rocket. I think I may need to invest in a paint smock soon.

Little wasn't very happy that he didn't get to paint the box too, so we gave him a brush and I got him to "paint" the tent we had set up.

Big thought this looked like far more fun than actually painting, so he ditched Rocket and helped "paint" the tent.

While on our shopping errand, Big found a bucket of Perler Beads (and who can really resist them right!) He has had more fun with those than I would have imagined. Again something Little can't play with, which royally ticks him off.

On a side note:

When you have two small boys in your house, they are both awake, and it is quiet...always ask yourself what have they gotten into. Today was no exception to this rule! Little likes to pull everything out of the bathroom cupboard as a daily routine, today I found he had then put himself back into it. Whatever makes you happy buddy!

Little also LOVES to help with the wash. He likes to put the clothes in the washing machine and then when they're done, take them out and hand them to me to put into the dryer. I had run upstairs to grab another load of laundry and came back down to find this. He had emptied half the box of dryer sheets out. My hands smelt like fresh air for quite awhile after putting all of those back.

We had the pleasure of enjoying some good friends wedding reception this weekend. Chris was gone, but the boys and I dressed up and enjoyed the event. The dance floor was the best part for both boys. Little normally goes to bed at the latest 7:30, but tonight he has up until 9:30 cutting a rug. He crashed on the ride home.

It was so fun to see both boys dancing and having a good time. Big told me he wasn't going to do any dancing on our way there. I guess he changed his mind.

Little also really enjoyed holding on to the light bulbs that were surrounding the windows. I can't wait to see what he does with the Christmas tree.

Happy Halloween

It's hard to believe that it's November and Halloween has come and gone. I'm sure soon enough the snow will start to fly. (the forecast claims this weekend) The boys had fun Trick or Treating last night. Big dressed as a Lighting McQueen race car driver and little was Nemo. Little only went out for a short time and then was done and Big didn't want to stay out much later than that.

They got a boat load of candy, and have hardly made a dent in it. Last night was quite crazy and so I had to have the boys get into their costumes today to get a few photos.
