Day 68

HOORAY Uncle Tim is coming today!! He arrives while A is in school and probably won't be here until after A leaves for gymnastics. A is so excited that he wanted the aerobed set up tonight so he can check to make sure it was perfect and switch the his bedding to it and put fresh linens on his bed for Uncle Tim.

Day 67

Last night we did some more christmas shopping. I also finally made the chocolate chip cookies and I also wrapped most of the presents.  When A was trying to pick out his gifts for our christmas game I had to keep reminding him that he isn't picking out gifts for himself, he is picking out gifts that other people would want.  He would say okay then go find another toy, ugh.

Day 66

Last night on the way home from gymnastics practice A told me something very funny.  Out of no where he told me Uncle T smells VERY good and he likes the way Uncle T smells. When I asked about Uncle M he said, he smells different. HAHAHA.  A has been asking about deodorant for a while now and I keep assuring him that he doesn't need it yet that he is just getting sweaty, not stinky.  Well, Santa told me that he was going to put some deodorant in A's stocking for him this year so I guess we will be getting some of the stuff Uncle T uses. i had planned on getting an unscented one but if he loves the smell why not?

Day 65

Baby it's cold outside! Brrrrrrrrrr.  Just gymnastics practice today.  A is getting very excited for his uncle T coming in a few days!  I just have some stocking stuffers left to get for A and I am DONE shopping!

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Day 64

You can kinda see how chapped A's lips are. He licks them all day long until they practically hurt me! Blistex medicated is bought by the truck load this time of year and Santa always puts some in his stocking.

Day 63

We had some very strange weather this weekend. After freezing us out last week this weekend had highs in the mid 40's and it poured all day yesterday.  I am glad we don't live in the upper midwest were they got all that snow but I am sure A would have loved it!  This week we are back to freezing cold and tomorrow's high is supposed to something just evil around 20 degrees.  Uncle M arrived from florida on friday just before A got off the bus so he was very excited. Uncle T will be arriving next monday.

Friday, December 10, 2010

day 62

I am so glad it's friday! A should be getting a new music book tonight at piano lessons, he really just flew through this last one!

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Day 61

Yesterday A had a great practice and I finished up the new look of the team bulletin board which is pretty good if I do say so myself.  Today is a nothing going on other than homework day which I always love. A's uncles will star arriving soon from Florida and he is VERY excited!

Here A is fixing the lights that were blown around last night.

Day 60

Wow, day 60? We are already one third of the way through the school year!  A thinks he did very good on his math test yesterday.  He was also able to go to the library and pick up his reserved books because he finally returned the other ones he had.

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Day 59

Last night A was attempting to study for his math test today, that is until wheel of fortune came on.  He has never watched the show but suddenly he couldn't take his eyes off the TV. The apple has not fallen far from the tree...

Monday, December 6, 2010

Day 58

What a great weekend.  We got some Christmas shopping done and A got a much needed haircut.  His glasses will be in tuesday or wednesday.  His old ones were very crooked so we went and had them fixed. When I handed the man at Pearle Vision his old glasses to get the lenses out he actually laughed out loud at the sight of them. At least someone found it funny.

What's that white stuff behind him?  Since Thanksgiving we have been having just flurries. Today is also just flurries but this is the first time it has been cold enough for it to stick.

Friday, December 3, 2010

Day 57

I swear I posted something today no idea why it didn't show up.

Last night A stepped on his glasses just right to break them in half. Good thing we still have his old glasses to get him through.  I called pearle vision today and can you believe that it's not a manufactures defect haha.  I hope the new frames come in soon.

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Day 56

Today A gets to do his holiday shopping at school. The gifts range in price from $1 to $6 so you can imagine what the choices are.  He enjoys it and it allows him to pick out gifts for everyone that are surprises.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Day 55

A is trying to make a christmas list. So far it contains video games and nerf guns. Ugh, what a boy!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Day 54

Yesterday I bought tickets to take A to see The Nutcracker. He is very excited about it!  I asked him if he knew what a ballet was and he didn't.  He knows the story and is excited to see it. He is also excited to see a full orchestra play! I can't wait! I don't think i've ever actually seen The Nutcracker live myself.

Monday, November 29, 2010

Day 53

Well it's monday and that means back to school for A. He had a great thanksgiving and enjoyed watching the snow.  Saturday it blew around some more snow also. Yesterday we went and saw the new Harry Potter movie, it was awesome!

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Day 52

Well the short school week is over and A is super excited for Thanksgiving. He and I made the pumpkin pies last night...lets hope they last until tomorrow!

Looks like someone fell asleep on top their headphones.

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Day 51

I had a great parent teacher conference last night! A is doing fantastic of course! They are going to speak with OT and see if there is anything they can do to help in the classroom with his writing (he receives OT for graphomotor skills).

Monday, November 22, 2010

Day 50

This week is only a three day week because of thanksgiving and every day is an early dismissal because of parent teacher conferences, my conference is tonight and I expect to hear great things.  I got his report card last week and it was fantastic, three A's and two B's!

Friday, November 19, 2010

Day 49

TGIF! A got a few new books yesterday at the book fair and entered in a drawing to win another book.  Just piano lessons today and nice lazy weekend.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

day 48

I love thursdays, there is nothing on the schedule. The book fair at school starts today, maybe we will go there after school to pick out some new books.

Day 47

The life of a gymnast

This is his rip after having just over a day to heal.  These happen all the time, you just hope they don't happen right before a meet or during a meet.  At States back in march he got a rip just about as big as this one during warm ups on the high bar and he still did fantastic and was first place on rings that day.  He was very proud of this rip because he said he didn't cry at all it just stung a little when the skin came off. His coaches say he is becoming a man, haha.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Day 46

Nothing to report today. A had a good practice yesterday but he got a big rip on his hand that will need some TLC for a couple days. In gymnastics lingo a rip is when is blister forms than rips open leaving the skin raw on the palm of your hand. Very common.

Monday, November 15, 2010

Day 45

Wow his glasses look crooked. Guess we need to find the time to get them straightened at Pearl Vision.

Friday, November 12, 2010

Day 44

Hooray it's friday! A got his trophy last night and he LOVES it! He is looking forward to his piano lesson today then a nice relaxing weekend.

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Day 43

Today is the end of season party for soccer where he will get his trophy.  I always think this is the real reason that he plays's all about the medals and trophys, hahaha.

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Day 42

For some reason A has been sleeping in my bed for over a week. When asked why he does not have an answer. Oh well. I just wish he would stop hitting me in the face all night long...

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

Day 41

Not much to report. A had a good day at school and a good gymnastics practice.

Monday, November 8, 2010

Day 40

What a great four day weekend we had.  Friday we went to dinner and a movie and saw Megamind. Saturday he had his last soccer game of the season. We are so happy to only have to do one sport until lacrosse starts in march.

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Day 39

Brrrrrr it's cold out there.  I think our random 70 degree days are no longer a part us.  There is no school thursday or friday for the teachers convention so see you on monday!

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Day 38

A is completely exhausted from yesterday but he didn't realize it. It all blew up last night with him crying in the locker room at practice because one of his coaches was being mean by making him hold a "hand stand on the parallel bars for 10 whole seconds and his arms hurt"!  Luckily this week is easy for him since he is doesn't have school thursday and friday so he can relax. He doesn't even have to do his big writing for language arts this week.

Monday, November 1, 2010

Day 37

Wow, it's november already?! A had a great weekend and had a ton of fun at his gymnastics meet yesterday. It went late and was far away but I was able to get him home in time to trick or treat for a half hour. At the meet yesterday there was a halloween shirt decorating contest that our team won!  A got a king sized hershey bar for it!

Halloween Scrimmage

This was A's first meet of the season.  It is just a fun meet, no scores count for anything. It is a great way to get the boys going for the season and if they make a mistake it doesn't affect anything. This wasn't his best meet, but it was a great start to the season! His next meet isn't until January so he has plenty of time to polish up his skills.

Halloween Parade

All Hail King Aidan!!

Day 36

Today is the halloween costume parade at A's school.  Check back later for a picture from that. In the mean time, here is a terrible picture from right now.

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Day 35

Today is starting out very foggy but it is going to be 72 degrees today. In october? It is supposed to cool down for the weekend which is good because I hate warm trick or treating.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Day 34

A is getting very excited for halloween! We have his costume all set and are working on the final details of the shirt for the shirt decoration contest at his meet.

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Day 33

Nothing going on today, A sure needs these days off from his crazy schedule.

Monday, October 25, 2010

Day 32

A has a busy gymnastics week. He will be getting an extra practice in in order to be prepared for his first meet so he will be at the gym four days this week.

The bus came a few minutes early today so I hardly had enough time to even get this one picture taken.

Friday, October 22, 2010

Day 31

Friday already? Wow this week flew by.  A had a great piano lesson tonight. He is flying through his book and only has just a few pages left.  His teacher is gonna go through the options he has to pick the best book for him to start soon.  A's first gymnastics meet is coming up on halloween and he is very excited!  I'm just glad that soccer is almost over.

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Day 30

This week in school is all about drug prevention. Each day has a theme. Yesterday was wear your clothes inside out since drugs turn you inside out.  A was only brave enough to wear his shirt and socks inside out. He told me that one boy had everything inside out, including his underpants! I hope that boy wasn't showing everyone!  Today is wear a sports team jersey for team up against drugs. A chose his Devils jersey, I guess it's not a bad idea to have a hockey team behind you!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Day 29

It's a little chilly to start the day but is supposed to warm up a little. Last nights soccer game was a win! Hooray! Of course the last shot on goal no one knew if it went in or not because it had become so dark.

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Day 28

He is supposed to have a soccer game today, a make up from a rained out game. There is a chance of rain but I am more concerned about how cold it will be and how is gets dark so early now.

Monday, October 18, 2010

Day 27

Wow, fastest weekend ever! I cannot believe it is monday already. We had a great time pumpkin yesterday. A wanted to try the corn maze for the first time and he loved it!

Here is a picture of A in the corn maze from yesterday:

Friday, October 15, 2010

Day 26

Wow, friday already? We hope to have a fun time this weekend with pumpkin picking. A is also doing fantastic at his piano lessons!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Day 25
