We finished out our birthday month with a never ending bout of Pink Eye. I really though we were never getting rid of it. I think it was going on 2 months before we were completly rid of it. Poor Jenna, she went to bed fine one evening and woke up the next morning deformed. She was so cute. It was difficult because it is SOOO contageous. I think the kids just kept passing it around.
The kids best friend Trisha got us tickets to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for our birthday. They were so excited!! I have to admit, I was too. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins, Handy Manny, and Winny The Pooh were all there. It was packed and a little stressful. Everything went great. We had a great time and no one was lost in the crowd. We talked about that for a long time.

The REAL Party!

Now for the good stuff! We planned their party with all their little friends at Pump It Up. It is a place that you can rent that has a room full of inflatables. You get an hour and a half to play then they have a party room that they set up and you can have cake and presents and all that fun stuff. The best part, they clean everything up. All I did was take the extra cake home. I loved it! The kids had a blast and we got to leave without having to worry about anything.
Jenna: "You are Crazy if you thing I'm going in there!"

Our best friend Trisha.
Our friend Aiden and his mommy Stacy.

I'm convinced Syd is part monkey. She has no fear and loves to climb everywhere. They had a HUGE slide that you sit and slide down. She would get to the top and leap into the air and land on her butt about 10 feet down the slide. That girl is something else. Jenna wanted nothing to do with the stuff. I went with her a couple times and she started to warm up. She didn't really get going until about 30 minutes before we had to leave. Ethan, Peytie, and Landon also had a fun time. They were exhausted and ready for the long ride home to take a little nap.

Baby Kenna!!!
Jenna is right where she wants to be here!

Syd: "C'mon Ethan, it's easy!"
Happy Birthday my big kids. It seems like only a little while ago you couldn't hold your heads up. Now you are leaping off tall objects and running around like a family of monkeys. You are so precious to me. Yes, I want to pull my hair out most everyday, but you are so special! I hope you know that. God has blessed so many people with your lives already, I can't wait to see what he has in store for each of you. I love you! ~Mommy~

Happy 3rd Birthday!

Boy! What a crazy week! We started off on the 13th with a thrown together party. I couldn't decide if we should have a party with all our friends and family or not this year. We had a party today and so I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do. The excitement of their birthday got the better of me and I couldn't help myself. So, at 10:00 that morning I started making calls to people. We didn't want any gifts, just cake and ice cream and some fun. I got the decorations up and bought the cake. By the way, cakes are outrageous! $24 for a medium sized cake. I couldn't believe it. Rob thought it wasn't enough cake and I was certain it would be plenty. After all, the party was such short notice I didn't expect too many to show.

Boy did I underestimate that! The house was PACKED! Everyone came and brought gifts. I couldn't believe it. The kids ate it up, they loved getting to blow out candles and opening all their gifts. The decorations were great and the party was a hit. Except for the fact that I needed about double the cake that I had gotten. Sorry to anyone who didn't get any! Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated with us. It was great!

On their actual birthday I didn't have anything special planned. But when they got up I went in their rooms and told them Happy Birthday. Ethan leaped out of bed and ran into the living room like he was expecting a huge gift waiting for him in the living room. I think he remembered Christmas and thought for sure this was going to be even better than that! Poor guy, there wasn't anything waiting for him. But, the day was packed full of special little things. They had a great day and were looking forward to the big party on Saturday.

Let The Festivities Begin!

Well, it's so close to their birthday we decided to start by a trip to the bowling alley. We only had Jenna and Peytie, so we invited Mel and the kids and my mom and all that bunch. I have never seen a thing that the kids can push the ball down to get it to the pins like this thing before. It is awesome. They got a kick out of pushing the ball down the hill and knocking the pins down. Peytie would throw his fist into the air and try to jump with joy when the balls hit the pins. I can't wait to see how they'll do for thier birthday. I hope they are as excited about it as I am.

They loved the bright shoes they got to wear.

Love Is In The Air...

Or at least all over the table. I decided to let the kids do Valentine cards for family today. It was a snow day so I asked a couple of high school girls to come over to help me. The kids hadn't ever used markers before. Now I know why I hadn't let them! They had a blast! It was a HUGE mess. They had marker everywhere! It was chaotic, messy, and fun. I hope everyone likes their Valentines!

Fun Time Before Bed Time!

This was one rare evening of peace. The kids were all getting along and having a good time. So, I decided to get the camera out an snap a few pictures. They are getting so big!

Syd's Artistic Side

I don't know what I am going to do with her. That girl would find the only writing utensil in a one mile radius. We have hid the crayons and she finds chalk. Somehow they found an ink pen downstairs, or maybe they found it upstairs and took it down, and wrote all over themselves. I find stacks of junk piled up next to the counters or cabinet where they have climbed to look for things. They are getting into all kinds of stuff. It's crazy!
We have to make sure all medicine, knives, keys, phones, money, etc. is hidden where they can't get it. They love chap stick. I can't keep one for me. My goodness! I feel like they have jumped at least one step ahead of me and I am struggling to keep up. I need to do another round of kid proofing.
All is well in the Wright household. We have braved the flu season so far and haven't been hit too hard. I can't believe they will be 3 in two weeks! Wow! I look back and can't believe how far we have come! I don't want to get all mushy now, I'll leave that to a post coming up. What a cliffhanger!
