5 year old check up, movies and kindergarten registration

 He is growing! He is now in the 25th percentile for height and 10th for weight. This is growth so we will take it. He was thrilled to have his picture made. He only had to have 2 shots and he did great. He watched the nurse give them both to him. I am amazed that both kids watch shots. I turn always turn my head, I can't watch anyone get a shot. I don't really do needles. The only news Hunter did not like from the doctor today was that he can't ride in a booster yet. She told him to gain 6 more pounds and he can get a booster seat. At the rate he is gaining weight he should be in a booster by 3rd grade.
 Popsicle, prize from the treasure box and a stick made it all worth the pain.
Since I had taken the whole day off we ran a few errands after the doctor and then went to the movies. He wanted me to see the Lego movie, since I am the only one who has not, so that is what we did. He was really excited that we had popcorn for lunch and got to sit on the very top row (we were the only people in the theater). I really liked the movie. After the movie we went to order his cake for his friend party on Saturday. I also finished all his paperwork to register him for kindergarten. I really can't believe that he is 5 and going to school with Hannah and I in August. Time is flying!!!

Happy Birthday Hunter!

 Thanks for the cool birthday shirt, Nene!
Here is the run down of his great day!
 He requested a sausage biscuit from McDonald's for breakfast.
 Opened his gifts from us.
He took cookies and juice to school to celebrate with his friends.
 He wanted to have dinner at Sonic.
 He found a dime leaving Sonic and thought it was the best thing ever.
He got to go on the stage at church and tell how old he was before everyone sang to him and Matt.
He even got a present at church from one of his sweet teachers, who he loves so much. She did not need to do that, she is too sweet. I think he was rather wound up for his teachers tonight. When we got home he ate cake, because it is his REAL birthday! Thanks for all the calls, text and messages. He loved them all. Happy 5th Birthday, Buddy! We love you!

He opened cards and a package from grandparents! He us one loved little boy. I had to get one last sweet picture of him before he turns 5 at 5:17am.

Great start to his birthday week

Hunter was so excited to stay home with Derrick today. They spent most of the day playing games at Dave & Buster's! Hunter loved it. He requested gout dogs with chili for dinner. We went yesterday to Whole Foods for him to pick out his cake. He was excited to eat the Oreo off the top and his slice of cake.

my little builder

 Hunter waited patiently to build this ambulance Meme gave him for his birthday. It was a pretty day and dad was home so they got busy building.
 He put the sticker on all by himself.
I love watching Derrick with the kids. It make my heart so happy!

family day

We were all glad that Derrick was off today so he could spend the day with us. We are sad he was out of town or working the whole time we have been out of school. It made us look forward to the weekends when he would be home with us. We went to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman. It was really cute!

Hannah and Hunter have spent the last two days playing and sleeping in the fire tent. Aunt Debbie gave this to us and the kids have loved it. Hannah is almost to long to lay in it, but that does not stop them. We can't wait until summer when we can get it out again and have lots more fun!

Sad our break is ending

We've had a great spring break. It has been so nice to just be home and not have an agenda for almost two weeks. We have just hung out and played. I have cleaned, updated the blog and pinned all my clothes for consignment that I had ready. It has been nice to visit with friends. Hunter got to spend most of the break out if school as well. We do not make him nap when he is home, but today I could tell he was too tired. Through tears he said, "I am NOT tired." This is who I found him when I went to check on him. I am glad that Derrickbis off tomorrow and we get to spend the day doing family things!

the finished porduct

Well, it took longer than I thought it would, which seems to be a going theme with me and Pinterest projects, but I love it.

Easter is my favorite sprig holiday. I am trying not to decorate too much until we have Hunter's birthday week.

For my first attempt I think they turned out well.

a Pinterest idea

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was a good idea. I did not think it would going to take all day to do just this part. The kids wanted to help. They each did wrapped one balloon and were DONE. I did the other 31 balloons. I hope the finished product will turn out like the picture on Pinterest.

I wish you could see the snow better. Hannah said, "Mom, why is it the 5th day of spring and snowing?" I did not have an answer for her.
This is not the hardest it snowed but I did not want to take a video while I was driving downtown when it snowed the hardest. We are hoping today is the last of winter.
