{Wii are slow to acknowledge its Feb!}

Santa brought us a Wii for xmas 2010..and Just Dance Kids. We just set it up yesterday..yup it took us that long to do it. And we have not taken our Xmas tree down yet. Maybe we should just leave it up -only another 9 mos and it will be up again.

I am taking the boys to Build a Bear tommorrow to make a few new furry friends for our house and Grandma Marge's apt and Grandpa Dave's couch. Then we are visiting G&G Zandlo and trying out the new IHOP by their house.

Jack had a Lion Cub mtg tonight..dinner and then a visit from an entemologist (bug guy). Bless his heart Jack did not want to hold any of the bugs and wanted to go home early..Yep no problem with that buddy.
He is dancing to ABC 123 by Jackson 5 right now on the Wii..gotta love it.
He told me he wants me to sign him up for a dance not sure that will go over in this house.

Joey is sleeping with me every night. Im going to redecorate his room soon with a Charlie Brown theme-hoping that maybe it will entice him to sleep downstairs in his room again..that or sleep in Jack's room.

Jack is happy to have his cast off and be able to ride the bus home after school.
He cracks me up when he gets mad at Joey and says.."For grace sake!"
Usually he isnt that polite but occasionally that is what I it.
I can really tell that choosing to send him to St Anne's was an excellent choice.
He was the Student Spotlight a week ago and it was in the LS paper too..everyone told us about it when we got back from Florida.

 Hoping to post more this year..Im anxious to work on my photography site but I dont want to lose out on recording my own family memories in place of it. :)

As told to me by my daycare provider:

Jack and Lucy were sitting at the counter eating their snack at daycare -

Jack: "That's my Dad that just drove by in the golf cart..he goes and plays golf for like 1 hour and then he goes in the clubhouse and just sits for like a million hours."

He figured this out all on his own ....but I couldn't have said it better myself son.

And now we are SIX....

Six years ago today you made me a mother... and I couldn't imagine a better son than you,Jack David.
I cant believe you are starting Kindergarten when it seems like just yesterday you came home with us and made us a family. You make me laugh, yell, think and most importantly love.  I know in my heart you will just continue to make us proud -Love you Jack to the moon and back
xoxo Mom

Joey had so much fun being able to run around outside this Sunday when temps reached into the 50's! These frog boots were Jack's -they are a little big on Jo-Jo but he didnt care. We went exploring-got the mail- and splashed in puddles before his nap.

A fun memory indeed!

{Let is snow, let it snow, let it snow..PLEASE!}

ON 11/30 John and I were tucking Jack into bed. Earlier that night I had a board mtg at the nursery school and the head teacher Mrs. H let me know Jack was SURE it was going to snow on 12/1. We discussed how he was SURE about a lot of things.:P

SO I took upon myself to try to minimize the negative if in fact it didnt snow overnight...which I knew wasnt going to happen.  We reminded Jack how hard it is to predict the weather and he just got mad. I aksed him how he would feel in the morning if it hadnt snowed?

Jack:"Oh...I'll be sad...(he showed us his best sad face -drama man that he is) but then I'll just..(shrugging shoulders)..just.. just do whatever I normally do."  

Me: "Well about if we have a guessing game..just me, you and Daddy"

and I cringed hoping he wouldnt wakeup his veryhardtogetinobed2yroldbrother-
So we all bet $1 and Jack annouced that we had to give him our dollars and he would keep them in his room until a winner was decided....(he reminds me more of his deal making father everyday)

So what did we wake up to today??? SNOW
Jack is the winner..he picked this Thursday 12/3.
Way to go Jack-Sven Svengaard -to be.

Let the countdown begin!

Our family had a wonderfully long weekend and managed to put up our Christmas Tree and some outdoor lights (I did all the outside work thankyouverymuch)!

Jack is way ahead of the game and wanted to write his letter to Santa last night..I was only able to persuade him to write the first word of the first item on his list. I said he had to sign his name or Santa wouldn't believe it was from him.
Jack's list consists of : Handy Manny Motorcycle, Handy Manny Work bench that costs a bazillion $'s, Handy Manny Truck with telephone,and a Cars item thrown in for good measure.
Great Job Disney on the marketing ...its working on my son.

I also convinced him to help me write a letter for Joey and it was hilarious to hear what Jack thought Joey would want:
His #1 suggestion was: "Sippy cups that LOOK like bottles" Joey will stop drinking from a bottle.
Jack knows Mom and Dad wish Joey was done with bottles and he hears us tell Joey.."Big boys don't drink from a ba-ba..they use a cup!" (then Joey throws himself onto the floor and screams until he gets the wanted bottle).

Then being the crazy scrapbooking/picture taking mom I am...I snapped some photos of him and secretly kept the letters and didn't toss them in the mailbox..Jack didnt seem to notice or choose to put them in the mailbox when I offered him the they will go into our December Daily album for future reference.

We once again have umpteen countdown calendars in the house..Jack LOVES numbers and counting...

..perhaps he is part vampire ??

Vampires are so "in" right now, why not?
