Last Saturday we went to the boys’ first light parade. They had so much fun and were so excited the entire time. Everyone around was giggling at their excitement and also well aware of their LOVE of firetrucks.
One of the horses did his business right in front of where we were and for some reason that didn’t have a scooper following them. Can you imagine all the little boys’ delight at getting to yell, “watch out for the poop!” to everyone that followed?
The boys LOVE Christmas. We LOVE their enthusiasm. Therefore they now have their very own tree for their playroom. They can decorate it however they want. They love it. We put it up last night and they insisted it needed a star, so daddy made them one. They thought their daddy was the BEST.
On the boys actual birthday we celebrated with ballons, donuts, a tea party, and pizza for dinner. They also had their school friends over for some PB&J’s at lunch. They had a lot of fun turning 4, but ask every day if they are 5 yet. Stop trying to grow up so fast boys!
(let’s just say Noah wasn’t dressed blog appropriate)
This is how Noah introduced himself to a stranger at the park:
Hi I’m Noah. That’s my daddy his name is daddy. That’s my brother he hits me a lot.
“Oh daddy, you’re making fire trucks! Yippy skippy!” Ezra
“Mommy it’s kinda of dark out.” -Ezra
“Yea it’s going to be cloudy and cooler the next couple of days.”
“Yea and it’s going to snow!”-Ezra
“Some pretzels are ripe, some are not.” – Ezra
When I was leaving to get my pedicure Noah asked, “are you going to be gone for 5 days?”
“I’m applesauce! I go with the food.” – Ezra
“It’s not Ezra day. I thought it was Ezra day.” Proclaimed Ezra madly when he got in trouble.
“If there’s a fire in my room, go outside and stay outside. Don’t stop for food.” – Noah
“Firemens need to put all their toys away so they can get ready for rescuing.” – Ezra
The boys were in their room for quiet time and I heard interesting noises. Went to check Ezra had opened the window, popped out the screen, and tossed down a bunch of blankets and pillows for a soft landing spot.
“Come on girls hop in my firetruck.” Noah
“You get the boys.” Noah to Ezra
“No I want to get the girls!” Ezra
“Come on girls get in my firetruck.” Ezra
Noah locked me outside so someone could get his step stool and try to sneak Halloween candy.
During quiet time I heard shouts of “it’s a hang glider!” I thought nothing of this until I heard, “maybe we should ask mom.” Walked in and Noah was holding his curtain rod. I was then informed “but we needed to be Diego.”
During quiet time the boys played doing laundry, they cutely hung stuff up on their beds to dry. Of course, the “laundry” was actually wet, and the humidifier was empty. 🙂
We celebrated the boys’ 4th birthday yesterday! We had lots of fun and no shortage of fire trucks.
For preschool the boys needed to be Bible characters. I decided on Jonah and the Whale since that is their favorite story in their picture Bible. Thanks to fabric glue and the thrift store it was easy and frugal. Which is good because they stripped them off as soon as they got in the classroom.
For Halloween night they were… wait for it you’re going to be shocked… firefighters! Okay actually if you just know us via the blog you might be shocked but for everyone else you know they are obsessed. We had friends come over to join us in trick or treating and had a lot of fun.
Last week we went to the pumpkin patch at the botanical gardens. The weather was much nicer this year (80s, last year it was 100!). We had a lot of fun. Bonus this year they had a firetruck to look at!
