Holy Kindergarten Batman! It's the 100th Day of School!

Friday, January 30th marks the 100th day of school for Philip. I found out the afternoon of Thursday, January 29th that he needed to have a shirt made up with 100 things on it to wear to school the following day. The kids who make shirts will get to wear them in a parade around the school. So, with little advance notice, I think we came up with a pretty cute idea! (If I do say so myself!) As luck would have it, this green T-shirt was on the clearance rack at Wal-Mart for $3.00. We decided to draw 100 question marks on it to make it like the Riddler from Batman. Of course, Philip loved the idea. He was just upset he couldn't wear a mask too! I think it turned out pretty cute for a last minute project!

Christmas 2008

We all had a fantastic Christmas this year! Lots of happy memories were made. Philip must have been a very good boy because Santa dumped his sleigh down our chimney!

One of our favorite gifts this year was the Wii. It's hard to tell who Santa actually intended to leave it for....Philip or Fred!!

The Case of the Missing Tooth...

On Thursday, November 13th, Philip lost his first tooth! Good thing Bree was here because I don't "do" loose teeth...ICK!!! She got a paper towel, reached in and pulled it right out! Philip was very excited about the Tooth Fairy's visit. Apparently, the price of teeth has gone up because she left him a whole dollar!

Happy Halloween!

"Harry Potter" had a great time trick-or-treating at PaPa Phil's house with the little sheep that showed up...(otherwise known as Isobel!) Of course, he got tons of candy, and even an orange soda at one house that he was very excited about!

Happy Birthday Philip!

I can't believe my baby is 6 years old! Aunt Hilary and Uncle Courtney hosted a spooktacular fall Birthday Party. Complete with a hayride, pumpkin painting and a huge bonfire for roasting hot dogs and s'mores. Owen and Cole went with Philip to his party and made it extra special. I think all the boys had a great time! The adults did too! Hanging around the fire with our hot chocolate and spending time together. What could be better on a beautiful fall evening!

Circus Time!

PaPa Phil took Philip to see the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus. He had so much fun! He got to see all kinds of animals and clowns and even got to go down into the arena and try on costumes! He got a $15.00 snow cone and a $20.00 rubber elephant. We passed on the $7.00 bag of popcorn, though! Good times...

Okay, I give up!

Alright, I have finally decided to enter the 21st Century and create a family blog. I can't promise how often it will be updated, as I am still learning the process, but here goes! Enjoy!
