Something is in our wall. We hear it scratching and climbing around in there. It is driving us crazy, and I am really scared it's a RAT! Jes thinks, and I hope, it is a chipmunk. Jes decided to try and find out. We couldn't figure out how it was getting in, so Jes decided to drill holes in the wall!!
Then he decided to cut a square out of the wall... with my BREAD KNIFE! And look at the mess!
He put a mouse trap in the hole, and taped it shut. We haven't heard any running around since, but we haven't caught anything yet. Wish us luck, I hope it's not a rat...

Mason's Birthday Continued...

Mason wants to take cupcakes to school for him birthday tomorrow, so we went to the store and I let him pick out a cake mix. Of course, he choose sprinkles! I let him help make them!

Putting the muffin cups in the tin, yes they are Christmas, it's all I had. I hope the 3 year olds don't mind!

This was a little scary! The bowl was slowly sliding away from him, I had to take the picture fast!
He double dipped, don't tell the kids!!!

Mason's friend Ginger gave him a remote controlled spider! He loves it, he thinks it's so cool! However, when he first opened it he thought it was disgusting! Listen closely and you will hear him say so at the end of the video! It was so funny!

Birthday Boy!!!

We celebrated Mason's 3rd birthday on Saturday with a friends party. We had this awesome cake made for him, and he loved it!!!

We played some games, this was a "train" game Jes came up with. All the kids held onto the rope and we went through an obstacle course to get to the train station and pick up prizes! The kids all had a lot of fun with this game (much more then we thought they would!)
Sophie and Rachel
Waiting for pizza! Jes put the cake in the middle of the table and all the kids were obsessed with it!

Dance Off!!!

Jes f0und an old CD of his favorite songs back in High School and we had a family dance off (even Tori participated and had fun!).
The winner was Mason... dancing pretty much the same way Jes did in high school.
Here's some video.

I went into Victoria's room to find Mason "reading" stories to her. It was very cute so went to get my camera. Unfortunately by the time I got back Tori was crying, so the moment was no longer cute. When she was calm I decided to take some pics anyway. After our photo shoot I was looking back through them and came across this lovely picture! This must have been another funny daddy moment that I somehow missed!
Here is a cute one of Victoria today!
I had forgotten about this one too! Mason loves to try on Tori's things... pants, hair bows, bibs ... he is so silly!

Mason had his first day of preschool today! He has been so excited for weeks! He had no problem with me leaving him, he didn't even want me to stay! He just kept saying "bye mom!" he couldn't wait for me to leave!!! It made me sad, but happy too. I was glad he didn't cry, and I actually held myself together and didn't cry either! When I picked him up he was still happy and the teacher said he had a great day! There was another little boy who apparently cried the whole day... I'm glad Mason was happy!
