Zeke at the Dentist

Zeke went to the dentist today. 

for the first time, I know - it was kinda late but im glad I'm waited because Zeke was very very good and still. 


gloves
 looking at floss

Feeling the air
Open wide!!

He did soo well! he kept his mouth open the whole time. He wouldn't even close his mouth to swallow. He sat so still for the hygienist but later wouldn't let the dentist look in his mouth.


Brushing with new toothbrush and new jammies (new jammies unrelated to dentist visit and more to do with watching star wars with daddy saturday)

decorating the barn

For my sisters wedding we decorated the barn.

these are some progression photos

The chairs took forever to cover!

tables up


looks snazzy with the purple up lighting

in use :)


play kitchen

We have a great space in the basement for the kids to play in.

its a barely finished room down there but it has potential.

Abigail was given a new kitchen set by a friend and it came with all the kitchen supplies. Those combined with what she already had made for some messes that were often stored in a old diaper box.

I went looking for a kind of shelf to store the food and plates etc in.

I ended up at Big Lots where I found the perfect solution. a drawer thingy.

sorry for the pictures- I just used my cell phone.


the top bunch of drawers are the plates and other dishes

 the bottom is all the food

And all the pots and pans go in the basket under the microwave


pretty cute I think :)

First Day of school 2014

Once again the school year is upon us. 

This year Zeke is in the 5 day 4 year old PreK class at his preschool. 
Abigail starts this year in the 3 day/week 2 year old class at the same preschool. 


I take pictures at the hutch so you can see how they grow year by year.

Zeke started on tuesday and Abigail on wednesday


Abigail not wanting to pose for me

She wanted to change outfits

Zeke heading in

Abigail going in. She loves her backpack


Zeke actually went to his classroom all by himself while i put Abigail in her room. 

Both did so well, no tears! mommy either :)

martian skins

let me tell you a story that my dad told my son.



See that pond over there?
see all the green stuff in the pond? 
(way more than in this photo as this was taken later)

do you know what that stuff is?

its Martian Skin. 

really, it is. 

Do you know how it got there?

Martians come at night, once they know you are sleeping, and dive into the pond. There they shed a layer of skin which then grows into the algae. 

the Martians then zoom back up to the sky and they go so fast they dry off quickly. 


This story came up because we were cleaning out the pond for my sisters wedding. 
Zeke was a big help 
mom and Melissa pulled it out and then let it dry. this is them cleaning up the dried algae. 


Later we went to visit Dave's parents and went to a local marina for a walk. 

we were walking along and then we hear Zeke exclaim "look! Martian skin"

We tried to get him to think this was a spaceship. 

He just told us its a thing to pick up the martian skin. 
more martian skin


ok

so this has become a thing at Pake and Grandmas house. 
but would it last?

We get home from our trip and Zeke sees these guys on Phineas and Ferb
and calls me over and says "mom, those are the martians that left their skin in Pakes pond!

oh, his poor teachers! they will not know what he is talking about!

Melissa's Bachelorette Party

Dave and I headed to canada one day early. this enabled me to go with both my sisters and hang out for my youngest sisters bachelorette party!



We met up at my middle sister, Amanda's, house where we got ready. 

Here we go! off to a night of adventures!

Go karting!!!!

getting into the cars :)
We got the bigger ones so we didnt have to stand in line and we could all start the same time. 

amanda


Between each lap we had to drop off a ticket for the next lap. Sometimes there was a bit of a back up. it happened only once for each sister that I passed them before that spot and was able to get a picture of them behind me :)
Melissa


While waiting to get into the restaurant we made sashes that said Bride and Maid of honour and Bridesmaid (although that was an honorary title for me) 


Skylon tower!

Inside the sykon tower was this glass shop. so pretty!!
 we look pretty good for hand making most of our decorations! 

walking by the falls



 Clifton Hill

and to finish off our night we decided to take missy to go ride a bull



We were actually fairly tired at this point so we headed back to Amanda's where we got snacks, watched Bridesmaids and spent the night.

Such a great night!

thanks for letting me come!
