Sunday Snapshot: Jordan is now 8!

I can't believe my baby is now 8.  It seems like it was just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.

My parents came down to help celebrate his birthday.  We started the day at Bounce U.  While there Stefan and I both skinned our elbows and Taylor got a huge scratch on her face.  

We then headed for lunch at Old Country Buffet.  After lunch we went to Cherry Crest Farms.  We did the hay maze and after 2 hours finally found all our map pieces and found our way out of the maze.  We had lots of fun doing all of the other activities at the farm.

Sunday Snapshot: My Sweet Boy

Jordan made a book at school called: All About Me.  Here are the pages from the book.

Here is his report card from the 1st marking period.  Second grade is the first year that they are graded in all the subjects.  I am so proud of how well he did.

Stefan's Birthday and Fun at Toys R Us

On October 11 was Stefan's birthday.  We traveled to Shady Maple Smorgasbord to eat supper with Stefan's parents.  Shady Maple is such a yummy place to visit.  They have hundreds of items to choose from and Taylor and Jordan's favorite-slushies.

On our way home we stopped at Toys R Us.  Taylor and Jordan both recieved a birthday card and $3 coupon for their birthday from Toys R Us.  Taylor had some birthday money so she bought a bathroom set for her dollhouse and an Asian baby that she named Qing Qing.  Jordan was able to get some accesories for his Wii.

Birthday Party, Take 2!

On Saturday, October 9, we had a second 3rd birthday party for Taylor at her grandparents' house.  I wanted her to have one party with my grandmas and with her uncle and his family.  It was a beautiful day outside for the party.  Her cousin, Aiden, was kind enough to share his bounce house.
Yes, you might recognize the dress but hey, you can only wear a birthday cupcake dress at a few occasions and it won't fit next year.


I love this picture of Taylor and her cousin, Aiden.

I was so happy that this cake turned out much better than the one at the first birthday party.  As I was adding these pics to the blog I realized-I SPELLED BIRTHDAY WRONG!  I am so buying ice cream cakes from now on.

Visit to Sight and Sound

On Thursday we were able to go to Sight and Sound Theatre to see Joseph.  Because they were having a fundraiser we were able to purchase tickets for $15 a person (reg. almost $60 a person).  The show was wonderful although very long (2 1/2 hours).  All Taylor kept saying on the way home was, "Joseph-flying in the air."  I guess she was very impressed by that part.

Taylor was very scared when this huge crocodile came up the aisle straight towards us.
