Jackson's Tea Party

So, every year at Calvary Baptist Preschool, the 4 year old class has what they call their Annual Tea Party....think 4 year old prom! They girls get all dressed up, as do the boys (just not usually as fancy.)

The kids draw names to see who their "date" will be for the day. The boys escort the girls, present them with a flower, sit by them as they eat their snacks, etc. It's really just a way to teach them about manners and how to act around each other in a "formal" setting.

Then, they hit the dance floor for some well rehearsed dances as well as some slow dancing. SO CUTE! I mean really....

Take a look at some of the pictures from the day. This is Jackson and his date, McKenzie.

Birthday boy...part 2

So, after the crying fit, we put him in the bathtub cleaned him up (made sure to get all the icing out of his EYE) and he was much, much better. This is after most everyone had left and the spotlight was now off of him for the time being. Much better, huh?

Birthday Boy...part 1

The Birthday boy!! So, as you know, Ethan turned 1 year old recently. We celebrated with a birthday party/cupcakes/ice cream at the house. It went ok, EXCEPT, and this is a BIG except...Ethan didn't get his nap out that day. I think he slept for about 1 hour total.

Here's how it all went down:

Are you ready? Are you sure your ready?

Yes, it ended in a full blown, all out, cry fest. Complete with icing in the eyes.

Happy Birthday anyway, little buddy!
