Van's Birthday part 2

 Vanny Roo :)

After we came home from MC Donald's, we got ready for Van's party.
Petey set the table.
Daddy blew up balloons.
Mommy and Grandpa hung banners.
Ollie tried on all the hats and blew the noise makers.
Van stayed up in his room the whole time because he wanted it to be a surprise!

Van got to cakes. The cookie cake he picked out and the other one Mom did. We also had two ice creams, orange sherbet and vanilla.
We order Fox's pizza.

It was a fun party!
everyone had a good time!

Van's Birthday part 1

For lunch, on his birthday, Van chose where he wanted to eat. He picked ....... MC Donald's.

So we went and played at the play area. for home to get ready for the party.

Petey's timeline

Last week, Petey had to make a time line of his life and got to share it with his class for show and tell.
It's very funny to think that so much stuff has already happened in such a short period  of time.

The Cold, Old Leprechaun

Petey had to write a story using ALL of his spelling words about a leprechaun this week. 

Here is the story he wrote, with very little help from Mom......

The Cold Old leprechaun
by Petey Patterson

One day a leprechaun was cold. He was old. He didn't even touch his gold. The rest of the leprechauns sold their gold. The cold old leprechaun wasn't bold, he was shy. The rest of the leprechauns were new.The rest of the leprechauns told him that he must sell his gold. All the leprechauns like Broadway.

The End.
Broadway is his school & his bonus word.

guess what we did last weekend......

we painted our dining room.
Josh made a place so Tatum and I could hang our aprons.

we put up crown molding too.

Josh also made an area for the kids to hang their bookbags and coats.

each kid picked out a hook. Van picked dogs, Petey a fish, Ollie a deer, and Tatum picked out birds.

two boys were at school.....or this would be fuller......

and I finally got my black door!
I LOVE it.

school projects & updates.

 Last week, Van had to do a report and get up in front of the class and talk about someone.
Van chose Sacagawea.
He had to choose three things about her family, then why she was important in History.
Then he made a diorama for a scene from the book he read and had to explain what was happening.
The pictures he glued on top of the box are of statues of Sacagawea.
Inside is the scene where she found her brother again.
I am not really sure why he chose her, I have my thoughts it's because of Night at the Museum.
but he was really excited to do this project.
I enjoyed helping him out.

 Tatum was also at the table making her own project.
She made a dog with a pink sparkly valentine heart.

Then, at the last minute, Van's teacher decided that the kids should make bags or boxes to put their Valentines in, they were going to make bags in class.
So we had to make a run to Wal Mart and get some hearts and paper.
Here is Van's box.
The transformers is from wrapping paper I had, which matched the cards he handed out that was also Transformers.
The box also had his three favorite, black and brown.
Petey passed out super hero cards, Ollie Spongebob cards & Tatum got some Tinker bell cards to make out.
I really do think the boys brought home more candy from their Valentines party then from their Halloween parties!
Sorry for so few posts lately, We had three doctors appts. last week, One sickness, school pictures and haircuts.......ect., you get the picture.
I hope everyone is doing well, and I will try to make it around soon. :)

oh....and I am ready for Spring, how about you????
