Polar Express Night 2011

Another Polar Express night went off without a hitch, except that Macie and Sawyer were to sick to come this year.

New this year: Sweet little Landyn.

Our conductor had a new train whistle.

and Brand new HUGE red bells!


Here are more pictures of our super fun night.











the best and the worst

When Scott told me he had to work the game at KU and couldn't make it to Connors game I didn't think much of it. I figured I would go and be there and all would be fine. Then Sawyer got a fever and his cough sounded horrible. So I asked Connor if he would be ok with us missing one game and he said that would be just fine so I dropped him off and his coach kept an eye on him and brought him home.
I heard.....He did great!
I also heard......it was his VERY. LAST. GAME!!!!

I cried a little. Scott swears he told me about it being the last game. Images of him walking up to get his award and looking for us on the bleachers. auuuhhhh.
Worst mom ever award.

Anyway he got a trophy and was beside himself about it. We are so proud of this little man.

Connor is a mama's boy and besides me he won't let another person kiss him without wiping it off. It's a little family joke to see who can kiss Connor without it getting wiped.
Anyway, tonight when my Dad brought him home from a Grandpa -Connor date he had given him a bunch of yard sticks. When Scott was tucking him in he said he was gonna sneak back into his room and give him a kiss on the cheek while he was sleeping cause if he is sleeping he couldn't wipe it off.
When I got home from mutual Scott was laughing and told me to look at what Connor was building in his room. When I peeked in I saw row after row of yard sticks blocking the way to his bed. He looked at me laughing and I said "Connor, are you making some boobie traps?"
Ten minutes later I hear him moving in his room again and Scott hollers for him to go to bed. He says "But Dad, I am fixing my Boob traps!"

getting excited

The excitement for Christmas in our house is crazy! We have been doing our Christmas binder and getting gifts for our Secret Santa's.
Last night we made our traditional Borax ornaments with Grandpa Evan and he started the countdown towards our Polar Express night. The kids have been so nice to each other this morning trying to earn some Polar Express dollars for their ticket and their treats.

Wanna know what else is making my kids want to be extra nice and helpful? It's this little guy...

his name is Blizzard and he is a gift from heaven, I tell ya, for this mama! All I have to say is guess who's watching you and their eyes shoot up to the shelf. Presto chango!

Seriously thinking about keeping this elf up ALL YEAR!!!

Girlie PJ party

It was our turn to host Macie's Girlie Girl group and our theme was a Pajama Party. We had quite a small group of girls but they had a bunch of fun.
We turned our table into a huge bed and the girls ate heart shaped cinnamon rolls, fruit and juice right on the bed.

They all got to play some games in the big toy room and then we painted nails. Lastly, all the girls got a little travel bag to take home with everything they would need for bedtime. Including a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a night owl.

I put rice inside the owls so that the girls can warm them up in the microwave and then have a warm little owl buddy for bedtime.

Macie sure loves her little friends. I really wonder sometimes who will still be in this little town when they are all older and in High School. :)
