Daddy and Paige day

By now most people should know I like a deal. I also love free things. Which is why we do Home Depot every month. It is a great program for the kids and we get to do something fun! Well I found something fun for Alan to do just with Paige. Chick Fil A offers a Father daughter night every once in a while. I signed them up for one this month. They went this past Monday and had a blast. All it cost was the price of the meal. You need to make reservations ahead of time but it is well worth it! When they first arrived they had their picture taken by Cardinal Camera in Quakertown. They were then taken to their table which had table clothes on it and flowers.

This was on their table. They had their staff dressed as servers and took their order and served them their meal.

Paige also got her face painted and whole bunch of goodies. he got a bracelet, some rings, a wand, a cow, and a red carnation. he was in heaven!

Sweet and Sassy was also there with their pink limo. Paige and Alan got to take a ride around the parking lot in it! Paige also got to play in the play place. he had a great time and Alan loved having the one on one time with her.


I think we need to do more things like this. I agree with Alan that each of the kids are totally different kids when it is just them and no one else. No competing for attention or doing things to get a rise out of someone else. We need to do more stuff like this!

Meanwhile as Daddy and Paige were having a blast I was home with the boys. I made their favorite dinner of mac and cheese and let them eat in the living room. They also got chocolate milk!

Everyone had a good night! I can't wait for the next one so they can go have fun again! :)

Spiderman

We have a super hero in our midst. His favorite thing to do is go "wort wort all over my house".

It is Levi Spiderman! This was his reward for finally going number 2 on the potty! We have had this costume saved for him for months. He finally did it and I can now say he is potty trained! (well not at night but I will take what I can get) We still have accidents here and there but hey who wants to stop playing to do that potty nonsense anyway!?! We are so proud of our little Spiderman.  Paige is also right there with him and earned her Tinkerbell shoes about a month or so ago. She was a lot easier than him in this aspect. Now we just need to work on Nathan!

Tool time

Yesterday we did our monthly visit to Home Depot for their free kids workshop. This month the kids got to make race cars! The boys were especially excited for these! We always go right at 9am to try and beat the rush. The moved to a different spot in the store this time. It had a lot more space and better lighting so I liked this new spot and I hope they keep it!

Opening up our kits. There was no paint involved this time. We got to play with stickers instead! Levi like to wear the safety goggles. :)

Hammer time!

So proud of our cars!

After Home Depot we usually go to Calvary church to play at Mr. B's which is an indoor play place. It was closed yesterday because they were having an outdoor show. o we went to that instead! Luckily a lot of it was inside since it was so cold. We did go outside to play in the bounce house though!

Taking a boat ride.

They also got their faces painted for the first time. Levi got an alligator, Paige a butterfly, and Nathan a spider. They sat so nicely to get their faces painted. We had a great day!

My little dancer

We enrolled Paige into her first dance class! A couple weeks ago we became members of the YMCA and decided to enroll Paige in petite feet which is an introductory class for dance. She is fascinated be ballerinas and loves to dance and sing and listen to music. Today was her first class and she loved it! She went right on in the room and didn't even notice I had left. (I watched her dancing through the door though!) She had a blast dancing and doing girly things with all the ballerinas in her class! She was so excited when other girls started coming in. She stood and counted all the ballerinas. When the class was over she came out of it all upset. I though she didn't like it even though she looked like she was having fun. Nope she was sad it was over. She came up to me pouting saying she wanted to dance more! I am so happy she had fun. Can't wait till next week! :)

This is the only picture I got. I considered be stalker like and taking pictures during but I didn't want to distract her and be "that" Mom. lol. I am lucky I got this one because she just wanted to run around with all the other girls!
