Kids' Birthday Party!!!

Today, we celebrated Chloe's 3 1/2 and Micah's 1 year old birthdays! Happy birthday to our sweet kids!!! This morning, Andrew went to Patriot's Park to "reserve" tables by taping some homemade signs to the picnic tables closest to the play structures. It totally worked!! When we showed up for the party at 11, the tables were not being used. woo hoo!! Special thanks to Ade for coming over early to make a stack of PB&J sandwiches and to Elaine for coming early to help unload the car and set up at the park.
Daddy, Princess Chloe, and Prince Micah are ready for the party!!
(Ade bought Micah that cute crown!)
Beautiful princess!

Riding the airplane together--so cute!!!
Micah loves the slide!

Chloe squealed when she opened this present from Marisa (and Kevin and Jakob)--a Cinderella purse, gloves, and necklace.
Mommy loves her little princess!

Purple Princess!

pretty princess!

After Chloe decided that she wanted to have a princess birthday party, I thought it would be fun to give her a new princess dress as a 3 1/2 year old present. Not sure if I will keep doing 1/2 year presents, but it seemed fitting as she was having her birthday party now. So, we found this dress online (on sale, of course), but it is way too big for her. She wore it at home for a bit, but then said she needed to get bigger to wear it. Thankfully, yesterday, I had been digging through the bins of hand me down from Shae and found a pretty party dress, and Chloe was very excited to wear it instead. Whew! Crisis averted!!

Foam Letters

For some reason, Chloe thought it would be a good idea to take apart our foam letter floor mat and put them around Micah's neck. And for some reason, Micah let her do this to him.....

So, of course, Micah took this opportunity to chew on the foam pieces!
(I rescued him right after I took these pictures!!)

Fire Station

Our mom2mom group took a field trip to the fire station this morning. Chloe kept talking about how the firemen helped her daddy last week when he hurt his shoulder. She really wanted to thank them for coming in the ambulance and helping her daddy and taking him to the hospital, and she talked about it most of the drive to the station. Of course, once we got there, she was too shy and made me thank them!!
It was a hot day, and all the kids did a great job listening to the fireman talk!

Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day to my awesome hubby!! Even though he is recovering from a dislocated shoulder, he managed to have some fun today. We went to church, had breakfast burritos for lunch, he helped Chloe pick some cherries in our backyard, and played with some rockets and Bocce Ball at the park. Thanks for being the best daddy to our kids!!!

Micah wanted a turn on the ladder too! Thanks Gree for helping him out!

He climbed onto the rocking horse all by himself!!!

Micah is One!!!!

Happy birthday to our sweet little boy!!
Today has been an interesting day, for two reasons. First, Micah and I have both had 102 fevers since Sunday, and I went to Kaiser this morning and found out I have strep throat. Ouch!! Second, Andrew was playing softball last night and dislocated his shoulder. He started going into shock, and his teammates called 911. Meg called me to tell me what was going on, and to tell me that Chloe was ok (Chloe had gone to the game and was hanging out with Meg and her kids, while Micah and I were home sick). I called Elaine crying, and she went to Kaiser to meet the ambulance, Kristen drove out to Capital Christian to pick up Chloe, and Ade came over to hang out with me until Andrew got home at 12:30 in the morning. I love our family!!!
So, we didn't do much to celebrate Micah today.....poor baby!! He will be celebrated at the joint Charlie/Micah/Father's Day pizza in the park on Sunday, and at his kid party in a few weeks. We love you, Micah!!!
some snuggle time with sick momma
I did not make a cake for Micah like I was planning, so he got to eat some ice cream instead. In the picture above, he said "yay!!" when we handed him the empty bag!!

Tired boy!

Today is Micah's first time being forward facing in the car seat. He was so cute looking around and talking to Chloe!! We went to Jakob's birthday party this morning and then had a long drive to get to Alannah's birthday party. I was so thankful when I saw Micah fast asleep in his car seat during the drive! I remember it being a hard adjustment for Chloe when we moved her to the new car seat, so I am glad it was so easy for Micah!!

Worst Mom Award

Micah and I were sitting in the backyard this afternoon cutting his fingernails, I leaned over to pick something up, and next thing I knew, Micah had fallen off my lap and face planted on the ground. Poor baby!! He is so brave though, and only cried for a few minutes. He scraped his nose and has a nice goose egg on his forehead. Here he is with his road rash...
