First day of school

Sam started preschool a few weeks ago. I forgot to take pictures before we left for his first day, so these were taken just as we got home his first day.
i think he had a great time

All day he was shouting "First day of school! First day of school!" and jumping around just like Nemo (as Nemo tries to wake up his dad at the beginning of the Finding Nemo - it is probably Sam's favorite part of the movie)
Admittedly, I was probably as nervous as Marlin sending off my little guy to school. Luckily his preschool is only twice a week for 1 1/2 hours. He is just getting so big so fast!

She loves bugs

Seriously. Just look at that face.

MJ has been talking about this encounter all week. "Big bug in my hand. I pet big bug!"

She loves bees, fruit flies, potato bugs, spiders, slugs, crabs and all sorts of creepy crawlies. She wants to feed them, pet them, lay them down for "night night" and even give them hugs. She spends time outside digging in the dirt with her rake looking for bugs. She loves petting slugs especially. I go back and forth between thinking this is cute and ewwww. (as I scrub the slug slime off her hands)

Molly Jane is 2!

So both kids birthdays were almost a month ago and this is shameless backblogging. But I wanted to post anyway before I forget how much fun we had.
We had MJ's 2nd birthday at my mom's house and invited all the grandparents and Keenan's sister and her family.
MJ enjoyed feeding her birthday dinner to her animal friends. It was a barnyard animals theme. I put Keenan in charge of the dinner menu and asked him to BBQ. He decided he wanted to go with the theme so he cooked up a little of the three main barnyard animals - beef, pork and chicken. I had a boca burger.
We made balloon animals from a kit I found at Target. Super fun. MJ made a pig and a cow.
Sam made a fish, Pearl made a dog and Eleanor made a lion and a cat.

MJ loves cake.
She decided it was more fun to eat using her animal toppers as utensils. Don't worry it didn't slow her down any.

This little cutie enjoyed her cake too.

We played outside on the swingset, played a few party games - ring around the rosie, duck duck goose- and then opened presents!

sporting her new "pretties" and new cowgirl hat

Among other things MJ got a My Little Pony from her brother, a bumble bee pillow pal from her cousins, a baby bed from her parents, a Mickey Mouse pillow from Aunt Kara, a makeup kit from grandparents and jammies and dress up cowgirl outfit from her other grandparents. Quite the haul for such a little lady!
