First day of preschool

Guess who survived the first day of preschool? my little man Aiden. Things were ok until they decided to switch rooms after I had told him goodbye and then he flipped out....his teacher said he only cried for like 15 minutes and once he realized everyone else was having fun and playing he was ok. I on the otherhand had some nice me time. I went to Target ALONE, Walmart ALONE, and then came home and enjoyed my time ALONE until it was time to go get him.

When I picked him up they were out on the playground and when his teacher called his name he came running and said "yeah mommy" and gave me a big kiss. What a nice thing to hear. He melts my heart.

Our conversation when I picked him up:

Mommy: So how did you like your first day?

Aiden: Fun

Mommy: Did you make any new friends?

Aiden: NO

Mommy: Did you play with anyone when you went outside?

Aiden: yes, a boy.

Mommy: What was his name?

Aiden: I don't know(in a very sarcastic tone, like sheesh quit asking me so many questions)

Mommy: What did you have for a snack?

Aiden: apple juice and cereal

On the way to his first day of preschool

I snapped the picture

came on and scared him...LOL.

he is

Weekend recap

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a pretty busy one. Daddy decided to paint the girl's bedrooms and he also had his company picnic at Holiday World on Sunday. Mommy tried to hang with them and have a good time but to be quite honest was VERY miserable with a very bad sinus infection....she even went to bed before Aiden did all weekend...thank God for daddy watching him for her so she could do this.

Aiden has his first day of preschool tomorrow guys so start praying for him and me that I don't have trouble removing him from my leg when I drop him off. I will fill you guys in tomorrow on how he did.
Aiden had to be in on the painting too.
Do you guys see the good job I am doing?

The kiddos. This was the last we saw
the big kids until they checked back
in later.
Aiden LOVED this ride. He made the shooting
noises and was quite comical
to watch him

He thought he was big stuff being able
to drive by himself

This picture is kind of funny....who knows

These pictures were taken about a year ago when Aiden was in love with this stuffed "fwag" as he called him. The attachment now seems to be his blankie but I couldn't find any pictures of that one...LOL.

Fwaggie I will share my juice with you

I will love you

and rock you before we go to bed.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Family and celebrations

Hola mi amigos. I am sooo sorry I have been MIA..not like any of you really missed me, LOL. I have to admit having to move Kelsey kind of took a toll on me and I had to adjust to the life change of not having my oldest baby/friend here on a daily basis. Aiden has had a hard time as well and still goes to her room and looks for her and then cries when he realizes she isn't in there...he talks with her just about everyday on the phone though...its funny to listen to their conversations. The other two girls are back in school as well and so we are back to the daily grind of the school year. OHHH we have also decided to put Aiden in preschool two days a week. I am excited and a little apprehensive at the same time as I am not sure how he will do with out me or daddy being in sight. I told my husband that it wouldn't surprise me if I received a phone call before I even left the parking lot to come get my hellion...LOL.

The following pictures were taken yesterday at my aunt's 60th surprise birthday get together with family. It was nice getting to see the family that was in from out of town and just hanging out with everyone. Enjoy the pictures and I hope everyone has a great week.
Is 60 really considered over the hill? My
aunt says they made a mistake when
they printed her birth certificate..LOL.

Gotcha Day and Going Away

Yesterday was Aiden's second Gotcha Day and no I am not sending him away....LOL. We combined his party and also made it into Kelsey's going away party. That was one big party filled with all sorts of emotion. I told Kelsey that the day I move her 6 hrs away on Friday is the day I brought Aiden home 2 yrs ago....I will have my youngest baby for 2 yrs and be moving my oldest baby into a new stage of life....where in the heck does the time go? My husband says next week I will be in therapy since I am having such a hard time with all the change..LOL. Well enjoy the slew of pictures. Amber and Charleigh Rose
