Our Crazy Week

This past week was so crazy at our house... crazy, but fun.

Monday- It was kids eats free Monday night at Chili's.  So we went to Chili's for FHE.  The kids LOVE eating out so they thought it was great. And when we can get 4 free kids meals it really makes eating out AWESOME.

Tuesday- On Tuesday I had the Relief Society birthday party.  We had a princess party.  How fun right?  It has been a LONG time since some one threw a princess party for me. :)  And just before I headed out the door Scott got a call from our neighbor and the men took the kids out to McDonald's.  I had already made dinner, but I said they could go play with their friends.

Wednesday- Wednesday was art night at the kid's school.

 It started with a song from each of the grades.

 Once the songs were over, we met up with the kids so they could show us some of their art. 
Emma's is the one with the yellow moon.

 Alan showing us his dragon,

 and his crazy creature.

  Don't you love the library?  Bryce loves the bench in the front of the school.

Thursday- Thursday was Scott and my 9 year anniversary.  Wow how time does fly.  To "celebrate" we took the kids to Get Air.  It is a trampoline park.  We actually went because I was invited to a party there for bloggers.  You can't beat a free night of fun and we ALL had a BLAST!!  At first I was a little worried my kids would be too young to for it, but no one had more fun that Bryce and I got TONS of free swag.  Including a free birthday party at Get Air and a birthday party to give away on my blog.  AWESOME!

Friday-  On Friday I spent the morning making cake.  I usually do my cake making at night.  But I ran out of time to make the cakes on Thursday night so I have to make them Friday morning.

 I made this cake for a neighbor, and then I also made Alan Boy's birthday cake.  This cake in an ombre extra ruffle cake.  I LOVE the effect.  

 This is why I try not to do cakes while the kids are up.  Poor Bryce (who is almost always in just a diaper weather I like it or not)  tore the place apart.  I just had to laugh and take a quick picture when I saw him squatting there eating his toast on the floor.  Worlds Best Mom!  Right Here!

 Then I got Bryce dressed so we could drive into Salt Lake and pick up Scott and then Logan and I went to on a special day to Toy Story 3 on Ice.  It was so fun.  Logan sat on  my lap the whole time and just stared at it in a trance.  It was literally the best.   When it was over we took the light rail back over to Scott's office where the car was.  Logan really loves it when he get to ride the train.

Saturday- Saturday was Alan's 6th birthday.  When did he get so big????

 We had such a fun day.  We started the day with a Transformers party.  I am making the kids keep their parties small this year.  Four guest!  That's it.  Which is really hard when that are like 15 kids Alan's age on our street and the cul-de-sacs connected to it.  The is like 1 in every 2 houses has a kid Alan's age.

 We played pin the symbol on the Transformer.

 The winner got a coloring book.
We watched a Transformer cartoon while we ate lunch.

 Then Optimus Prime sent the kids on a treasure hunt for Energon.

 The Energon box was PACKED with stuff for their treat bags.

 Then we opened presents and had cake and ice cream.

 That is quite the haul.
 We actually had one more game planned, but once Sonic Generations was opened, that was it and since there were only about 10 mins left before parents were coming we just let them play.

Then we had a couple hours to hang and recover before we headed out to see The Lorax in 3D.  So good.  I loved the animation, the fact that is is a musical, and that it really is a nice family movie.  After the movie we took the kids to McDonald's.  Okay seriously we very rarely go to McDonald's, but it was Alan's birthday and that is what he picked so we had to. But really, Alan had his first Happy Meal on his 4th birthday.
When we got home Scott's fam and our neighbors across the street came over for cake and ice cream.

It was a FUN day.

Sunday- Tonight we had Emma's baptism preview.  I am SO exited that she will be getting baptized this year. I am going to have a hard time not going over board, but hey she is my only girl and for me, being a first generation member of the church, passing that gift on for the first time is HUGE for me.  HUGE.
