Ramsey's Thanksgiving at Pre-School

Right when he got to his class his teacher had a Thanksgiving movie on for them so she could work on getting their faces made up like Indians and costumes on:

Then it was back to the classroom for a party. They had cupcakes, cheetos, chic-fil-a nuggets, ad of course juice boxes. Meal of champions. Of course Ramsey had to pull his chair right between his buddies JT and Thomas:

Ramsey's 4th Birthday Party

Last Saturday we had Ramsey's 4th Birthday Party. He doesn't actually turn 4 until Dec.4th but we wanted to do it a few weeks early due to Cope's drill schedule. Ramsey of course chose a Lego theme this year. I can say this was my favorite theme thus far. So fun and so many options! We had the party at the tumbling center (Devil Rays) again this year and had about 35 kids. It was WILD but so much fun and Ramsey had a blast!

The amazing Cake my friend Shawnee made. Each Lego piece was a different flavor:

What I'm Thankful For...

I can't let Thanksgiving get away without giving a shout out to the two best aspects of my life. I am so thankful to hubby for working so hard for us, for loving me despite my quirks, and for being such a good friend. I am thankful for the best little boy who makes me laugh, makes me stretch my patience, and fills my heart with love every single day! I am so thankful to be his mommy. What a treat! Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!

Kelly's Baby Shower

The weekend before last me and some of my friends threw a baby shower for our friend Kelly. Kelly is Ty's mom who is Ramsey's best little buddy. She is pregnant with a baby girl this time so having a girly shower was a must! Here are some pics of our finished products for the shower:

Ramsey's Time with Grammy and Grampy

Last weekend Ramsey went to Bowdon with Cope on Friday night. Cope had a mountain bike race in Birmingham Alabama the next day so Ramsey stayed with Grammy to enjoy the West Georgia football game:

He had a blast!:

He loves their big tub and enjoyed playing in the body foam:

Cope's bike group won first place!!! I stayed back at home to get ready for my friend Kelly's baby shower. I was in charge of the food so I had to cook all day and I knew Ramsey would have way more fun at a football game the stuck in the house with me. I love that he has so many grandparents that adore him so much.

Grand Finale of our Trip- LEGOLAND!!!!

After our 4 Disney parks in 4 days we couldn't stop there. We had heard of Legoland before but didn't know much about it. Cope looked it up and found out it was only 45 minutes away and had just opened this fall. Since we were so close and Cope was done with his conference and had the last day free we just had to go. We didn't tell Ramsey until the morning of. Needless to say we were all pumped the the days BIG adventure.

Ramsey entering the park: The Holy Land!!!:

Keep in mind as you scroll through the millions of pics I have below that everything you see is made out of Legos. A dream come true for Ramsey:

All in All our Disney vacation was the best trip I have ever been on. Everything is geared towards kids and makig them smile. As a mother that is what counts! I now totally get the Disney hype. It is the worth every penny (and it cost lots of pennies)!
