Wall E

Landon is obsessed with Wall E. I finally found him a Wall E shirt at Walmart and he wore it around his neck throughout the store. And now he has worn it THREE days in a row! He brought into me this morning and has worn it over his jammies all day. Silly little boy!

Knott's Berry Farm

Chelsea & Chris came out this week and we went to Knott's Berry Farm. It was such a fabulous day! There were like 12 cars in the parking lot when we arrived and we didn't have to wait in any lines all day. The kids had a blast in Camp Snoopy. They had a mini roller coaster that Cailyn & Aiden went on over and over and over. If there was no one in line when the ride was over they could just stay on and keep riding. They loved it!

A Final Farewell


Yesterday we woke up with the realization that it was the last day we'd be able to use our Disneyland passes before they expire. So pretty much last minute we decided to go to Disneyland. We got the kids in the car with the pretense that we were taking Cailyn to school. After about 1/2 hour of driving she started getting concerned that we were taking a long time to get to school and her class had already started. I asked her if she'd rather go to the park than school, but that didn't fly. She started getting teary-eyed until I mentioned Disneyland. Then she was on board and super excited! We had a lot of fun and I'll be sad to see our passes come to an end.

Family Prayer

I just LOVE when it's time for family prayer. Landon comes running into the family room, plops down on his knees, folds his arms, and bows his head, just like his sister. Of course 2 seconds into the prayer he's up and running circles on the floor, but it's cute while it lasts! :)

Valentine's Hair

Today is Cailyn's Valentine's party at school and she was so giddy with excitement this morning. We decided to try a Valentine's hairstyle we found HERE and I think it turned out pretty cute.

This is the (very strange!) noise Landon makes when he sees a McDonald's. Mom - I'm posting this here just for you. :)

Valentine's Playdough

Today we made some homemade playdough. I got the idea from THIS blog. Landon, of course, didn't want to touch it but liked to press the shapes into it.

Traumas of a 5 year old ...

Today for snack Cailyn wanted to take some applesauce. I tried to give her a cheap spoon that we had, but she insisted on her princess spoon. I wasn't feeling well and wasn't in the mood to argue so I gave in but told her she HAD to remember to bring it home. I didn't think it would be a problem cuz she always brings her spoons home. Of course, today she threw it away. When we were driving home and she realized it, she just broke down and started sobbing. Poor little girl! Oh to be 5 again and have a lost spoon be the extent of your worries! :)

Valentine Cookies

Today Cailyn got to pick out some sprinkles to decorate Valentine cookies. Landon wanted to help, but of course ended up just eating the icing. :P

Valentine's Fun

Each day this week I have a Valentine's activity planned for Cailyn. Today we made pink hot chocolate with heart-shaped marshmallows. Then we played a Valentine's memory game that I printed from online. She thought it was pretty sweet.
