I'm a BAD Aunt

Sorry I haven't posted this sooner. Tim and April welcomed our newest nephew, Simon Christopher into their wonderful family on Monday!! Simon weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 20.5 inches long. Proud Daddy

We can't wait to see Uncle Tim and Cousin Ian in just a few weeks!!!  This is a very busy time of year for Ian as he has a big birthday coming soon too.  Happy 3rd Birthday Ian!!

Happy Birthday Eddie!!

Today is Eddie's 5th Birthday!!  We shared a big birthday party at Pump It Up with one of Eddie's classmate friends, Gavin.  There were kids everywhere and everyone had a BLAST!!  Click HERE to see pictures from the party and from opening presents at home tonight for his actual birthday.

Here is Eddie's reaction to the Sponge Bob cake he asked me to make.

Here is the birthday song.

One of the presents Eddie received is a DRex Pet Dinosaur that you train. It was a big hit with all 3 boys!!

Diaper Free?!?

Could we really be on our way to the end of diapers??  The Easter Bunny brought Joey a package of Spider Man underwear and he was thrilled!!  We told him that he could wear big boy underwear when we got back from our Disney Vacation.

When we got home he went right to his room and brought me the underwear.  We started on Saturday and it went as you would expect.  Lots of laundry and no pee in the potty chair.  Sunday was an open house for selling our house so we had him in pull ups for the afternoon and still no success getting pee in the potty.  Then when it was just Mommy and Joey for the better part of the day on Monday there were a couple successes!!  Once he figured out he got candy every time he used the potty he was tired of changing clothes and taking his pee pants to the washer himself.  In the last 4 days we have only had 2 accidents and one doesn't count because we had a backyard full of kids playing and he just didn't want to come inside and miss anything fun.  The…

Day 5 Downtown Disney

The boys wanted a toy at every gift shop we passed from the minute we arrived at Disney!!  We told them they could do all the looking they wanted and on Friday we would take them to Downtown Disney, an outdoor mall with every piece of Disney merchandise you can imagine!!!  Mommy got a bunch of supplies at the scrapbooking store to put our pictures together in a book.  The boys had a BLAST at the Once Upon a Toy store.

Alan  got a Buzz Lightyear Space Ship Lego kit, Daddy got a cool safari hat, and Joey was happy with some foil cover chocolates that had the characters printed on them!!  Then it was a 6hr ride in the van back to Panama City.

Day 4 Epcot

Epcot doesn’t open until 9am so we slept in a little.  Our plan of attack was to go right for the ride Soarin’ inside the building called The Land.

Joey was an inch too short to go on this amazing ride L  Daniel took the parent swap ticket and waited in the cafĂ© while Mommy, Alan and Eddie got in the 30 min line.  We also got fast pass tickets to ride again later in the day. This is a ride where you buckle into your “hand glider” and take off into a curved movie screen.  The wind blows and all of a sudden you are Soarin’ over all kinds of country side.  My favorite part is the scents they pump in so when you fly over the pine trees you smell pine and over the orange tree groves you smell oranges and the ocen smells awesome!!! We went to find daddy and Alan decided to wait with Mommy and Joey while Daddy and Eddie took a turn on Soarin’.  We met up in front of the Living With the Land ride.  It is a boat ride through the history of agriculture.  We ride through the green houses and fish…
