Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho...It's Off To Work We Go!

I think we are raising the eighth dwarf...

In the past couple of days, we have watch Snow White several times (at the insistence of Alex).

Alex has decided that he loves the song that the dwarves sing in it!  You know the one, "Heigh ho, heigh's off to work we go!"  We often hear him walking around the house singing "HEIGH HOOOOO, HEIGH HOOOOO!"

Today, I was lucky enough to get him singing it on video.  If you listen closely, you can hear him trying to say "it's off to work we go" - it comes out more like "off work go"!

After watching this so many times, I don't know if it is the singing that makes me laugh so hard or the ADD that he is displaying.  A quarter of the way through the song he starts looking at his arms, then his legs, then he takes off his boots - typical child with a short attention span!!

Enjoy the video of our little dwarf :)

Park Day

We decided to take advantage of the incredible weather we were having today.  Larry, La-La (our cousin Amanda), Alex and I went to play at the park. 

It was so busy - you could definitely tell that it had been the first nice day in a LONG time!  Since Alex has been attending school, he interacts with other children so much better now - I'm not scare about him plaing with other kids anymore!

First Alex had a little bubble blowing fun with La-La:

After that, we let Alex play on the playground.  He really liked riding the "yee-haw" and playing in the sand pit!  We are strongly considering getting him a sandbox for the new house...unless someone else wants to get it for him (hint, hint).  Here are a few pictures of Alex playing on the plaground:

And finally, our child is showing characteristics of becoming slightly OCD :)  (he might get that from his Mama!)  The child would not stay out of the sand pit, but he did not like feel of sand in his sandals.  He had each one of us stop what we were doing, pulled us down to his level, and sat on our laps until we took off his shoes and bushed the sand out from between his toes.  After we all (Larry, Amanda and I), had dusted the sand out of his shoes one time each, we made him to it himself.  It was so cute watching him do it...he had such determination.  Enjoy the pictres:

We had a great day at the park - and knowing that is probably our last time at the park in Enterprise was slightly bittersweet.  Alex, Larry and I have spent many days there - walking around the lage, feeding the ducks and playing on the playground.  We were very happy that we got to share the park with Amanda...I know that Alex was so excited that hse was there!

Fun Day Outside

It was the first pretty day that we have had here in awhile.  Larry, Alex and I decided to take full advantage of it :)  We let Alex run, play and have fun! 

Alex had a blast, running around the swingset, riding on his four-wheeler, riding his tricycle - wearing his helmet (safety first, you know?) and playing ball with Daddy!

It is sad to know that this is one of our last times playing in the yard with Alex at the house in Enterprise, but we are so excited to be creating new memories with Alex in our new house and yard!

Enjoy the pictures from our day in the yard!

New Blog Design

As you can all tell, I have had a fancy new blog make-over!  I love it!!

My friend Amanda creates incredible graphic designs for notecards, invitations and now blogs!  She is so very talented and I am so lucky that she offered to design one for me!  She did all this from me telling her that I liked circles and colors and that I wanted our picture on top!  She has such a creative mind!

If you like my blog makeover and would like something new for yourself, go visit her etsy shop at: Little Bean Shop.  If you don't see something on the page she has set up, feel free to message her and let her know that I sent you and tell her what you have in mind!  I bet she can create something amazing for you, too....and I know you won't be disappointed!!
