Preparing For Father's Day!

Preparing for Father's Day was more than mommy and I expected. It all began the Sunday before Father's Day when mommy found a Micheal's coupon for 50% off all hand molds. Once we had the coupon in our hands ,we were out the door shopping while baby Adam and daddy stayed home. While at the store mommy was so sure we needed two molding kits... one for my hand print and one for baby Adams foot print. We were in and out of the store like shopping champs. Then the day before Fathers Day while daddy was at work, we began the molding process. Much to our surprise the first mold harden before I could put my hand in it. So, mom says lets try the next box, thank goodness we bought two she says. Is all I could think about was baby Adams turn. What about Adams feet ma ma is all I could say. In the mean time, the second batch of mold was a hit well, until we opened the 3 D gel and it was green. Yes, it was defective.... By this time I was getting fussy and mommy face was really red. She got the phone, called Michael's and spoke to a manager who told her she could return both boxes and get a full refund. Well mommy did not what to do that, instead she wanted to put my hand in a third patch of mold. Yes, that is right we ended up exchanging the two kits for two more. Which meant everyone loading up in the car and heading out to Michael's for another shopping adventure, which is always a challenge with Adam and I. (At least mommy thinks so) The good news is while we were at the store we ran into MiMi (Miss. Anna the lady who watches us) She told mommy exactly what to do in order to make hand mold work. By this time it was lunch time, I was beyond tired and I think mommy needed a break as well. We decided to start fresh once we woke up from a nap. Around 3pm the Father's Day adventures started again.. The third mold worked like a charm... that was until it was time to take it out of the container. Mommy followed all the directions and lifted the mold out very carefully, in fact she would not let me near it. While removing the mold we begin to see one finger fall off, than another and another. Mommy screams then called grandma! After mommy had her fit, she said, "why cry over spilt milk, instead we should use some crazy glue to glue those fingers back onto the mold." I watched while mommy went crazy with the glue. All and all this was a learning experience and and activity mommy and I will never do again. As you can see by the photo's, in the end my daddy ended up with a mold of my hand and that was our goal, or should I say mommy's goal. We still have one box left but after our adventure mommy decided baby Adams foot print would have to go to the waste side this year. Do you think us girls are determined or what? Some say just pure crazy!
1st Mold!
This is fun!
Oh no ma ma.... look I spill the water.
The one and only hand print (Which took three times to do)
Is all I can do is laugh at my mommy and sister. Crazy girls!
The morning of Father's Day Mommy and went out on a limb and decide to make daddy a cake. I hope making a cake is easier than all that mold stuff! Step !
Step 2. I can do it ma ma. This is what I say to everything. Mommy says I am Miss Independent these days.
Step 3 That is right.. the only way to make a cake is to dig the icing into the cake. This should taste really good... icing, cake, icing, cake. Who ever thought daddy was getting a five layer icing cake!
Sprinkle time! My favorite! I bet I can use the entire jar of sprinkles. What do you think?
The best part to baking! May I say more!

Fathers Day

Father's Day...... Once daddy came home from work, the morning was full of gifts, cake, and a yummy breakfast. In the afternoon I napped with my daddy and then splashed in the pool with him. By dinner time we went to Outback and used the gift card mommy got from one of her students for an end of the year gift. Daddy loved his gifts, meals and sticker fun but most of all he loved hearing me say happy "hatters" day daddy for the first time! Mommy has it on video so check it out! All the goodies I made daddy for his big day!
Look my daddy and I have the same look!
This is the cake I made my daddy. I used every sprinkle I could find!
This is a book I picked out for daddy from the book fair at mommy's work.
Look! my hand prints!

Since my hair is falling out some say I look more like my da da. My hair was dark but it is growing in like my sisters.
Daddy really likes this Father's Day stuff.

Weekend Relaxation

Last weekend the family decided to break out the pool and hang out in the back yard. Daddy and mommy decided to join me in my pool too! We had so much fun and the best part was we were all in the pool together. As you will see by the pictures mommy forgot to add that one to the blog, I wonder why?
Daddy made delicious hot dogs and strawberry daiquiris for mommy and me. I still don't understand why my parents would not let me have a sip of their drink since I shared mine! Enjoy the photos and I know you don't have to say it.... yes my baby brother is almost as big as me! I love baby Adam!

Oh my! Can my sisters hands be any colder!
Yes, I told you once before I am a true thumb sucker!
Kick, kick, and kick! Look mommy I kick!

Mommy and me in the pool together!
Mommy is feeding baby Adam so I am going to feed my baby!
Clean diaper, warm weather, and my belly is full! What more can a little guy ask for! My sister and mommy are making me laugh but that is not hard to do because I smile all the time!
This is my second hot dog!

Relaxing in the shade!
Monkey see monkey do! Our feet in action!
Ok, this is a sight to see.... mommy and daddy in my little pool together!
Cool shades mommy! Future moview star, well at least grandpa and uncle Mike thinks so!
Nap time!

Graduation from Little Gym!

Today is Sarah's last gym class. The Little Gym is having a graduation party for her class. She has learned so much during the weekly session at the gym. Sarah's teacher says Sarah has very strong belly muscles and because of this, she should be able to flip over the bar soon. Since Sarah loves little gym so much Chad and I decided to sign her up for the next session, which starts next week. By the way, every time we leave Miss Anna's house (this is the lady who watches the kids) Sarah says "mommy gym" "Monkey Monkey" , which is what she calls the monkey bars. How could we not continue gymnastics class! Daddy picked baby Adam and me up from Miss Anna's because mommy had a staff meeting at work. Mommy promised she would come to watch me a little gym so... where is she!
Waiting for mommy and smiling like always. Oh, the little mark on my head is were I scratched myself. Mommy really needs to cut my nails!
I am watching the other class do "monkey monkey"!
I love to get all the extra bells so mommy can put them on my arms and legs. By the time I have the bells all on the song we sing is almost over!
I know all my colors and am telling my friends all the colors on the parchute!
Big blue eyes and sometimes green!
I am Miss Stacey's little helper. I always have to be the last and only person to help her put everything away.
I almost got it! Look baby Adam, look mommy I do it!
Stamp time... blue one Ms. Stacey blue one! Please belly, foot and hand!
My best friend Emily and me hanging out!
I did it!
Look, look I am monkey monkey flipping!
More monkey monkey!
Using my tummy muscles!

This is my Little Gym teacher Miss Stacey. I just love her and she has taught me so much!
Daddy, big monkey monkey big monkey monkey!
I do it daddy let go daddy!
