Chicken Dinner!

On our way out of Walmart, Wesley and I stopped up front so he could sit in the plastic car that moves and shakes if you put quarters in it. Since moving and shaking scares him to death, I get to save quarters and he just sits in there for a while. But he seriously loves it so it works out well for everyone. Three minutes into a most exciting chair sit, I started getting the gambler's itch as the crane game's flashing lights worked on me. I just got done thinking to myself that a dollar per play is a complete ripoff when I realized I actually had a single dollar bill in my pocket, plus there was this stuffed Christmas bear with a funny hat saying hi to me. I had a surge of confidence I've never before felt that I'm sure most people get right before they lose money. Wesley had never seen the game played before and I thought it would be fun for me him, and as soon as I asked him he was all over the idea. A small crowd had gathered to watch as we walked through how we were going to do it--I'll line it all up, you push the red button when I say push. I lost my dollar forever, the 20 second timer started, and:

Everyone was cheering, Wesley was jumping and laughing, it was a lot of fun. Good job Wesley!

Celebrating having Daddy Back!

We went to the park today. It was freezing, but we just needed to get out of the house and celebrate the end of a long, difficult semester.

A semester that my amazing husband totally rocked by the way.

Congrats Daddy! We love you so much for all the hard work you do for our family. It is so fun to have you around more for a few weeks!
