Choo Choo! A 2-Year-Old's Birthday Train

We started up Jacob's birthday train this past weekend with a party with his Little Rock friends. We had a great time preparing and celebrating. I can't believe our baby is almost 2!!! He is a crazy, funny little kid and we can't get enough of his jokes and laughter. March is a big month for birthdays in our family so we are excited to be able to keep the train going next weekend as well. More to come!

Zip Line fun

Last Friday evening we enjoyed spending time with our dear friends the McHams, eating pizza and playing in their back yard. They have a zip line! What is more perfect than a zip line for hours of little boy entertainment. The McHams back yard is a little boy dream world. Joseph was a bit timid about the zip line but once T & P showed him how it was done, he was unstoppable.

St. Patrick's Day

We had a lot of fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day this year. The boys are at such a great age for all the fun and games!We made these delightful clover snacks for Joseph to take to school on Friday. (thanks Pinterest for another great holiday treat!)
And, as is becoming a holiday tradition, my friend Jenny and I made shirts for our boys! Sham Rock!!!
Friday night after the boys went to bed, sneaky little leprechauns arrived and began playing tricks.
They left little footprints all over the table while hanging decorated pictures of the boys.
They also peed in our toilet! (and forgot to flush *gasp*)
They built a tower in the dining room so they could hide green toys in the chandelier.

The boys had so much fun discovering all the sneaky tricks. Later that morning we met some friends downtown to enjoy lunch in the Market and then watch the parade.

Did you know that the Storm Troopers were Irish? It was a surprise to me too.

morning reading buddies

Thursday, March 8, 2012


We started out this morning with a trip to the dentist for both boys. Jacob was escorted to a private room in the back for anticipated "first time at the dentist" screaming. But he was a champ. He thought his chair was a slide and enjoyed "weeee-ing" down the bottom. Once we got him settled into the chair he cooperated with Dr. Kitchens and let him check out the pearly whites. Jacob has good strong teeth and the dentist confirmed that the 2-year molars are working their way through.

And Bonus: Nemo was on TV!

Joseph did a great job as per usual. No cavities and good strong teeth.
We celebrated by having breakfast at IHOP afterwards!
