Chuck E Cheese Fun

Let me just say first off, not really a big fan of the Chuck E Cheese establishment.
Had a bad experience there a few years back with my nephew and swore I would
never take my own kids there.  As of today, my girls have only been twice. 
Everytime we drive by I hear this..."Mommy when can we go back to Chuck E. Cheese?"
And I say..."Maybe on a rainy day."

No rainy day, but a great opportunity to help a local preschool raise some money.

We were invited by a friend and neighbor to join her and her two children for a
fun night of pizza, Chuck E. and lots and lots of games AND tickets. 
Riding the merry-go-round.

Hi Mom!

Mr. Cavin was checking everything out.

The girls spent probably half an hour on this game.
They loved it.

Riding with Chuck E.

Look at all these tickets - wow!

We ended up with 1850 tickets all together.
Jamie and I found a ski ball machine that was malfuncting and
we were able to rack up the tickets.
Ha Ha!!

Pretty Girls

Here are the girls with their Aunt Carla who
got married this past Sunday.  
This was the first wedding for both the girls to attend.
Caroline loved the wedding (Kenzie not so much) and they both
had a blast at the reception dancing with their cousins.

And of course, they loved the cake.
I didn't make it, but I have to tell you.
One of the best cakes I ever put in mouth.

What A Day!

Yesterday was such a great day for my girls.  Caroline lost her very first tooth and Makenzie has been released from care from her urologist after 3 1/2 years of surgeries, countless appointments and ultrasounds.  God is good.   We have been blessed with such wonderful care from Makenzie's doctor, Dr. Martin Keafer.  He is so intelligent, caring and down to earth.  He really cares about the well being of your children, not just the medical aspect of the child's illiness.  I know there are a lot of other children out there with worse cases than Makenzie's, but just thankful for a great outcome yesterday.  I wish everyone could have a doctor like Dr. Kaefer. 

Caroline's tooth was really ready to come out Tuesday night. 
She asked Roy to pull it which I can't believe.  According to my parents,
Caroline is a lot like me when I was little.  But I can tell you , I would have never
asked my dad to pull my tooth.  Too chicken and I didn't want it to hurt. 
Roy tried as best he could, but he just couldn't do it.

Lookie there... Miss Caroline woke up Wedneday morning, poked her tongue
 on her tooth and there it went.  She was so excited.  Mauw (aka grandma) was here to see the whole thing. 
It was like Christmas morning.  Caroline was so gidding and excited.  I can't blame her, it's a big
thing to loose your first tooth.  Makes me sad though.  My first born has lost her first baby tooth.  :(

Here she is putting her tooth box with her tooth in it, under her pillow for the tooth fairy.

Mauw has worked for a pediatric dentist for more than 30 years and she knows the tooth fairy personally.  Really she does.  :)   Caroline had a lot of questions for Mauw.  Like, where does she live and how does she get in the house?  All good questions.  She lives at the dentist office and she uses pixie dust to fly through the house.  The tooth fairy left Caroline some new markers which she was very excited about.

Yesterday, Makenzie also had her spring musical at preschool.  She did a wonderful job.  She is such a performer and has no fear about being in front of everyone.  I will post the video soon.

He's also a golf pro

We have experienced a few days here and there of warm weather.  Well, that gets my husband all sorts of giddy.  He loves to play golf.  During this time of year, he eats, sleeps and breathes it.  Well, except when he is working of course.  I think?   I digress, sorry. 

He purchased both of the girls a golf club for Christmas this past year.  Pink for Caroline and purple for Makenzie.  This is really the first time they have had a chance to try them out.  What do you think?  Is my golf pro doing a good job at teaching these girls the in's and out's of golf? 

 Roy special made this golf putter thingy last summer.  The girls love to pull up there chairs and watch him putt and hit balls.  I think they are pretty special now that they too can putt and hit balls just like daddy. 
 Future Phil Mickelson?
Future Tiger Woods?
(just the golf part)
