Catch Air

Since it was winter break from pre-school on Monday, Cope, Me, Ramsey, my friend Heather, and her daughter Addison decided to take the kiddos out for some fun. We started out day off with a stop at Trader Joes. Heather and I are always looking for new healthy ideas for dinner and fun snacks for our kids. After that we hit "Catch Air" in Kennesaw. I hadn't been there but had heard good things. I guess every mother had the same idea we had cause the place was PACKED! Oh well, we still had fun! Ramsey loved it. It is great and different from Monkey Joes in that there is way more then just jumpys. We will be going back for sure! After Catch Air we hit Moes for lunch and then took a spin around Costco. Yeah, we are super crazy like that! So funny the things we consider a fun outing these days. I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING!

Ramsey was thrilled to finally be at "that air place":

More Energy?

Yesterday morning Ramsey and I were getting some odds n ends at Walmart. We were going down a center aisle when he says "Mom, back up!, I see some 5 Hour Energy drinks." I said "do you know what that is?" and he said "yes, it gives you more energy then a cup of coffee, can we get some?" Umm, NO! Seriously we watch too much TV (cause he learned about it from the commercials) and my kid needs more energy like a hole in his head. You just never know what crazy things will come out of his mouth. Just one of the many joys of being his mommy.

Valentines Party at Pre-K

Yesterday was Ramsey's Valentines Party at Pre-K. This was one of those I am so thankful I work from home and make my own work schedule so I can be at Ramsey's functions. I love watching him interact with his classmates. They are all so cute and so funny.

Here he is seated next to his favorite buds ready for the Valentine's shin dig to commence: Seated in a circle for passing our Valentines:

Funny Story

Let me begin by acknowledging the sweet post from Cope yesterday. Although I was super embarrassed and hate attention of most any kind it was really nice to read. I am so thankful for him and his love for me.

Moving on:

So the other night after our Super Bowl party of church friends and their kiddos, Cope was getting Ramsey ready for the bath. I overheard their conversation that went something like this:

Ramsey: "Daddy I want to tell you something but I am afraid you will be mad at me and I will get in trouble"

Cope: "Well, just tell me and you won't get into trouble"

Ramsey: "I can't cause you'll be mad"

At that point I step around the corner and say "come, on buddy just tell us" no way he says. Then I explain to him that he should always be honest with us and if it is on his conscious then it is always better to just get it out. I promised him if he is honest he will not get into trouble and we will not be mad. Cope agrees. Ramsey thinks about it...

He says OK he'll spill and I look into his eyes as he prepares to tell his secret...

He says "Ty and I put our fingers in the potty" (it was all I could do to not to bust out laughing)

I mean in his sweet little mind this was super naughty and I could just see them thinking they were living on the edge. I tried to take it very seriously and I explained about germs and that he shouldn't do that ever again but that we were happy he told us and we were not mad. Then I asked him if he had washed his hands after his naughty adventure and he proudly said "Nope!"

Oh the joys of raising a little boy!

Super Woman

Hey Guys,
It's Cope, and I wanted to take a second to recognize the lady in the picture above. 8 years ago I made one of the my personal greatest moves and committed before God and Family to stay with her through thick and thin. Since that day she has done nothing short of exceeding all expectations I could have for a wife, mother, and best friend. In the first 4 years of our marriage I was gone for 21 months, leaving her to keep our life in order and to give birth to and raise our Son. I love her very much and count my blessings each day, particularly at this time of year (in between our anniversary and Valentines). She works hard and I am proud of her.

Addison's Birthday Party

Yesterday Ramsey and I (Cope had drill) went to our good friend Addison's 4th Birthday Party. The theme was a pizza party and was super cute. When kiddos came in they got their own aprons and chef hats and then headed into the party room to make their own pizzas.
