Happy 5th Birthday Eli!!

We celebrated Eli's birthday a little early this year so that his Daddy could be there.  We invited all his friends from his Pre-K class at school to Burger King to celebrate.  He wanted a Monster Truck birthday so I found some stuff to fit the theme.  He also wanted a cake with a monster truck on it.  I figured that I wouldn't be able to find on but our local Publix had this cake and he loved it!  We got kid's meals for all the kids and they played on the indoor playground.  After they ran around for awhile we had cake and Eli opened his presents.  His friends were very kind and generous and he had a wonderful time playing with all of them.

First Soccer Game 2009

Soccer has begun in full swing at our house.  The boys were both so excited to start the soccer season this past Saturday.  This is Heath's third season to play and Eli's first.  Heath knew exactly what to expect and of course thought he should pick-up right where he left off last time he played soccer.  He was very frustrated that he didn't score a goal and we tried to explain to him that as long as he does his best and gives a full effort that is all that is expected of him.  Eli didn't really have a clue as to what to expect but he did really well.  He even took the ball on a long drive down the field only to barely miss the goal.  Here are a few more pics......I will try to add more as the season progresses.

Wild Adventures Trip

We went to Wild Adventures on the opening day 2009.  We have season passes so we are getting our monies worth.  The kids had a really good time and it was not crowded so we didn't have to wait very long which is always a plus!  Here are some pics of the day.

Heath Sings!

This is my first attempt at putting a video in so I hope that I did it correctly.  This is Heath singing in Church this past Sunday.  He has only been in this choir since January but he really loves it and has a part in the spring musical in May.  I hope you enjoy!

Happy 40th Daddy!!!

This is only a week late in posting.....but Happy 40th Birthday Daddy!  Bobby turned 40 this year!   I can't believe I am married to such an old man!  His birthday fell on a Thursday so we didn't really get to do anything special for him.  He had his normal work day followed by soccer practice.  After practice, we came home and ate dinner.   I did surprise him with a strawberry cheesecake!  He shared with everyone which made the kids really happy.  Then he opened his present which made the kids even happier.....a Wii.  We have had a lot of fun since playing the Wii.   It has even been a good motivation tool for Heath to behave a school.  If he misbehaves at school he doesn't get to play the Wii that evening.  So happy birthday honey.....even if you are 40!

Monster Truck Show

The boys have always loved Monster Trucks.  It all started when Heath was two!  We have always had monster truck toys and videos since then.  Heath went through a time when he didn't like them but Eli has always loved them.  There was a show in Macon and Bobby got tickets for him and the boys.  They all had a good time and Eli has done nothing but watch monster truck videos on the computer, play monster truck games, and build monster truck tracks since.  I guess our obsession with Monster trucks will continue because Chloe and Caroline found out that their were "girl" monster trucks and so now they like them too!
