Racecar Driver Ramsey

Ramsey finally got to get his McQueen car he got from Santa out in the sunshine yesterday. He loved it! He was able to drive it around the neighborhood and at times I had to run to keep up with. He is a crazy driver for sure. Other cars in the neighborhood should be afraid for sure.

Princess and Pirate Day

Ramsey's preschool had Princess and Pirate day since they were learning all about the letter "P" this week. I got there a little early to visit him in the class room and brought princess crown, and skeleton cookies for the occasion. The kids were so cute and their teachers got them each a pirate dress up set.
This is only about 1/2 of his class. Lots of kids are out sick this week:

He loved being a "bad pirate":

Boys and Their Toys

Cope and Ramsey are both very into Legos these days. I, however can't stand them and their millions of little pieces not to mention Ramsey is constantly asking me to find a missing piece or fix a broken part for the 100th time. I'm not exaggerating here. My brain doesn't care one bit for Legos but apparently Ramsey and Cope's does. I love that they have things that are just theirs, their "boy' things.

Sips N Strokes

Friday night was girls night with my sister and her next door neighbor. We went to Sips N Strokes off of Druid Hills since it was the location with the most fun painting. If you've never heard of Sips N Stokes I highly recommend it for a fun night out. There are anywhere from 30-80 people in a class and everyone does the same painting. There is an instructor at the front walking you through the painting step by step so you can make your masterpiece even if you not that skilled of a painter. You brig in your own wine and snacks and make little picnic right at your spot. It is fun to have something to show for your evening out and I proudly put mine in Ramsey's bathroom.

The Joys of Little Boys

Thursdays I put Ramsey down for his nap and I was straiting things up. I was in the guest bath downstairs and noticed an empty toilet paper roll that looked wet behind the sink. I took a closer look to see if a pipe was leaking. I looked around and noticed the little trash can had liquid in it. Actually about 1/8 full of liquid. I poured it into the sink only to discover it was urine. What in the world? I stopped and realized Ramsey had been using the little trash can as his own personal urinal. There was his little potty in there so why had he used the trash can?

When he woke from his nap I asked him about it and he said "it's just my new potty mom" I asked him why he wasn't using his kid potty and he said "because the tee tee was going everywhere". I realized now that he is getting bigger the little potty is further away and it is harder to aim at so the trash can being taller was a perfect solution for him. Needless to say he solved his own issue without help. Should I be proud?

We have since had a good laugh and put the kid potty away. Only the regular potty and a step stool from now own. You just never know what interesting things you'll find these days in the Rowell house or at least in our trash cans!

Dinner Date with Mommy

Ramsey and I went to Tokyo Japanese Steak House in Cartersville this past Saturday night for my step-bro Thomas's Birthday. Cope was supposed to meet us there since he had Guard Drill that day but they kept them to 10:00pm so he didn't get to come. Boo. Ramsey and I had fun anyway and here are some pics from the evening:

Starting off the night modeling his new outfit from my friend Crystal's online boutique. It's Cutie Clothesline on face book. Check them out!

Ramsey super excited about the fire:

After dinner we went to my sisters apartment downtown for homemade Terimisu dessert compliments of my Mom. Man it was good. Paige set up this whole jumping area for the kids. They loved it and did this for over an hour:
