Conversations with Caden: Tattletale

Caden: "One time Elli said "HEY COME HERE BIG GUY to Uncle Matthew."
Me: "Really?"
Caden:" And she said a bad word. I can't say it though."
Me: "oh...ok."
Caden: "She said Stupid. She shouldn't say that word."
Me: "Yeah-"
Caden:"I don't think she got in trouble though. She said it but I didn't say it."
Me: "Ok. "
Caden:" She said it."

I'm a Cool Mom!

Ethan's long-awaited, much anticipated Space Star Wars Angry Birds Birthday Party was today. And it was pretty cool. Three of the boys Ethan invited came(all the ones he REALLY REALLY wanted to be there) and all his Bricker cousins.

There was pizza and ice cream, a cookie cake decorated by yours truly and of course a giant Angry Birds game (which morphed into a house, a giant kitchen, and "deliveries" once the girl cousins got their hands on the boxes. The boys got to make catapults for their own Angry Birds set to take home.

All in all I'd say it was a big success for his first "friends party."

Nana and Papa gave him Rockin Sockin Robots this afternoon and they've been playing all night!

Conversations with Caden: The Dollar

Caden pulled  a whole dollar out of his pocket this morning...

Me: "Where did you get that dollar?"
Caden: " It was just in my pocket."
Me: "Yeah I know, how did it get in your pocket? Where did it come from?"
Caden:" Um...the front door was open and the wind blew in and it just flew in my pocket!"
Me. "Are you sure?"
Caden: "Um... Yeah it just flew in my pocket and it just got in there. I didn't know it was in my pocket."
Me: " Hmm... Was that the dollar I put in daddy's chair for him? The one I found in his laundry?"
Caden: " I just found it in my pocket..."
Me:" Are you sure it isn't daddy's dollar?"
Caden:" I will give it to daddy ok?"

Ethan is 7!

Well the flu has been kicking our tails for the last two weeks but I think we are finally in the light at the end of the tunnel. The kids are better, I am better, except for some headaches when I don't take it easy enough, and thankfully Jeremiah never got it. Hopefully he still won't. Alot of friends from church have been sick too but can I just say I love our church family? They are so so wonderful. We had people bringing meals and watching the kids and a sweet friend even folded some of our laundry for me.

We celebrated Ethan's 7th birthday yesterday. I can't believe its been that long since he was born. He's growing into such a smart, caring, gentlemanly little boy. I just love him so much. Here are some of my favorite pics of him when he was little- enjoy!
