Andrew's B-Day

We celebrated Andrew's 5th birthday this weekend at a park by our house.

We had lots of friends and family there.  Sydney, the little girl above, is Andrew's best friend in his preschool class.  

We had a coloring table.

We had a menu of Andrew's favorites (Chettos, chips and salsa, and bagel bites)

His cake was a lemon bundt cake-- because he does not like icing.

Andrew got lots of cool toys.  

The hot gift this year was anything Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

We attempted to play a few games.  They were hilarious.  The first one was the classic sit on a balloon to make it pop relay race.

But none of the kids weighed enough...

So we ended up having to help.... here is Andrew and Uncle Doug helping Sarah pop her balloon.

Then we moved onto the pinata... another failure.

None of the kids could hit it hard enough.

After about three rounds we finally gave up and just tore it opened.

The kids were excited anyways.

There were lots of laughs and plenty of fun.  

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!!

Swing Set

My kids have some great grandparents.

They tore down our swing set at our old house., restained it, fixed the awning, delivered it to our new house, and helped set it up again.

My kids were super excited.

Malia said she was going to swing EVERY day!!

Our backyard is fun again.

Thanks Mimi and Pawpaw!!!

Halloween.... a few days late

 I did really bad at Halloween pictures this year.... so for memories sake.... Kai was the bad guy from Scream, Andrew was Spider-man by day and a ninja by night(he thought he needed a costume change), and Malia was the prettiest Snow White ever.

Malia got to Trick or Treat all day long.  She had a costume parade at her school, then attended an after school program party with her brothers that I  helped out with, and then we all went around the neighborhood with some friends.  

It was a long day and the kids all fell asleep in their costumes.

Happy Halloween 

Premature Hair loss

Every child does it at one point or another... the dreaded cutting of their own hair!!

Andrew did it because his hair was itching his ears.  Funny how he did not cut the hair around his ears....

 The picture above is especially funny to me because at this point he realized what he had done and what was going to happen next and he thought his hair would never grow back and he would be bald like Pawpaw!

He cried all through the shaving of his head.

But he was back to his old self the next day.  I asked him if anyone at school asked him about his head, and he said "yes, but I just told my friends a chainsaw cut it off"....That sounds about right for Andrew.
