Black eyes and Marriage


This is the face I came home to last week! A goose-egg the size of a bouncy ball and 2 black eyes. What happened? Apparently, Van and Ava were playing. Van was launching a surprise attack with his toy rifle on his giant stuffed dog, named Big Bolt. As he swung the butt-stock of the gun around to catch the stuffed animal by surprise, Ava launched her own impromtu attack. She received the blow instead of Big Bolt! Poor girl looked like a Klingon from Star Trek for a few days because of all the swelling! 

In a seperate story, Van was trying to tease Ava at the dinner table last night. He started singing, "Ava and Connor, sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g... " Ava sat there with a passive look, listening intently to the taunt from Van. When Van reached the end with "first comes love," she started to smile... "then comes marriage." she looks at me with bright shiney eyes... "then comes a baby in a baby carriage." She ponders the taunt for a moment then happily replies, "Yep, I like that." The girl is obsessed with marriage and babies! She is going to turn out like Jennifer Lopez on "The Wedding Planner." She is so funny.

Jedi Training Camp

Van's Birthday was so much fun! Van has been loving Star Wars as of late, so the theme for his party seemed an obvious choice. I was pretty impressed with the way his R2-D2 cake turned out.  used 6 layered caked for the Body, and the dome and legs were constructed out of Rice Krispy treats. Jared and Jason also helped decorate and assemble the assorted peices.

In keeping with the Star Wars theme, we set up a Jedi Training experience that challenged the body and mind of our young padawan learners. Jared and Jason did a fantastic job in setting up all the different stations in our yard.
The water balloon balance was really fun for the kids. We had 3 different sizes: Padawan was the  largest followed by Apprentice. Lastly was Jedi Master.

The Pinata was a major hit with all the kids!!
