A couple items I forgot from Chuck E. Cheese's... They had this little photo booth looking thing, that takes your picture, and makes it look kind of like it was sketched. I had mine with Trey, and Bill and Nick had theirs together. I had to laugh, because none of us are looking into the camera!

A Chuck E Cheese's Birthday Party

Trent had his birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese's, and the boys were invited to come.
Below is the table of boys anxiously awaiting their pizza!
After they ate their pizza, Chuckie came over and sang Happy Birthday to Trent. I know this is a blurry picture, but I thought it was cute. The boys were really the only kids to participate in the clapping and singing...imagine that!
After the celebrating, the boys were set loose to play games! We had so many of those dang tokens!!! Below the boys are racing each other on snowmobiles...They were actually really good at this game!
I made Nick sit in this car "ride" wheret the fake Chuckie was sitting with him. As you can see by the look on his face, he was thrilled. It actually had a machine on it that took his picture...I'll have to scan that picture and post it later.

The Sandbox

I kind of boycotted the camera today, mostly so we could just have fun outside. I couldn't resist running inside to get it for this goofy picture. To give you some background...we went and switched Nick's bike from the Easter Bunny to one he could ride. While we were there, we let them pick out helmets (which they didn't take off until bathtime). And we also picked up some sand for the sandbox. The boys were sitting there playing in the sand with their helmets on, and Newman was in it playing right beside them!

I hope everyone enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine today!

Tonight I was folding laundry, and the boys started pulling out clothes for their "superhero costumes" I guess all it takes to be a superhero is to wear your underwear over your pants! Who knew?!

Easter Sunday

We had a very busy day yesterday!! Four Easter get-togethers!! (If you count our Easter at home) The boys woke up, and found their baskets, Eggs, and some new BIKES!!

Unfortunately Nick's was a little too big for him. It was a Tonka bike, and the seat didn't go down far enough for him to be able to pedal. That darn Easter Bunny should have known better! We'll just have to trade it in for a different one.

Trey's bike was Spiderman. He informed us that Spiderman was his favorite "man"Next stop was the Evans Easter. And a continuation of candy eating!

In the afternoon we went to the Uncapher Easter...and another egg hunt!

Grandma Betty was trying to get her camera to work, to take a picture of the boys. I snapped one while they were waiting

Nice ears Dad!
Tessa, Aunt Dian, Uncle Dave, and Canon.
Was it chilly during the egg hunt or do they just love each other this much?

ANOTHER Egg Hunt!!! We then we to the Sowers Easter for more festivities!
And MORE Easter baskets!! The boys must have done something right this year! The Easter Bunny sure was good to them!
On the way home, the boys finally crashed! I think they were coming down from their sugar high!
Nick was so tired, he used the cheesy potatoes as a pillow to fall asleep on!

Happy Easter Everyone!!

We have lots of festivities today, but first here are some pictures of the boys coloring Easter Eggs yesterday afternoon:

Would you guess that Trey's favorite color is green?Nick was a little egg artist...he did a great job painting the eggs! (and Daddy's fingers)

Venedocia Easter Egg Hunt

This afternoon we took the boys to the Easter Egg hunt over in Venedocia. There were quite a few kids there. They separated the kids into two different age groups - Trey was in the older group and Nick the younger. So Bill took Nick, and I took Trey.

Trey checking out his loot...Nick and Daddy

We made the boys pose for a picture with the daffodils. I think they only agreed to this happily because they had candy.
And they started eating their candy as soon as they got back to the car.

Flashback Friday - Easter

I never dreamed time would fly by this fast! It seems like these pictures were just taken, yet at the same time I can barely remember it ... Nick was about 4 months, and Trey was about 1-1/2.

I wonder if Grandma Betty knew Trey was hunting Easter eggs in her Tulips!!

Nick was wearing Bill's visor the other day. He fell asleep watching a cartoon, and the visor slid down around his neck. I thought it was so cute!

Little Chef

Nick loves to help...with pretty much anything. Today he helped make Grandma Cathy's birthday dessert.

I let him use the mixer without much assistance, and he was so proud of himself! He kept smiling and laughing! He was taste-testing through the whole process, which I'm sure is why he like to be there in the first place!
