Not Short Enough

I cut Natalie's hair Monday night. She'd been wanting it cut for awhile, so I thought I'd give it a try. She loves it, but she was a little disappointed at first. See, when I asked her how short she wanted it, she said, "Just like Carson's" and I obviously wasn't willing to do that. So she had to settle for "Just like Mommy's" and she's okay with that now, though it was her second choice.

Birthday Boy!

Carson turned 4 a few weeks ago. He wanted a Herbie cake, but I couldn't get an actual Herbie car in time. So he happily settled for a cake with lots of VW Bug cars instead.

Mike helped me decorate the cake, as usual, since he's so much better at it than I am.

And here are some pictures of Carson opening his presents. This one was from Natalie:
One of the Sunday outfits from Grandma and Grandpa L.
Tractors from Grandma and Grandpa G.
Race track from Mike and me.
Remote control car from us as well.
And here are some pictures of preschool here at the house the week after his birthday. We did an hour of preschool first, and then we had a few extra friends come over and spent the last hour having a birthday party. These pictures are during the preschool part. We learned about trains, so the kids are being a train. Carson is in the green camo, and Natalie is in the pink and brown sweater.
Here's the arrangement of cupcakes for his party. He had a Bumblebee Transformer theme, so we put one in the middle.

All in all, it was a fun party, and the kids had a great time. He got several transformers as gifts, due to the theme idea, and that was perfect. He's been into them a bunch lately, so now he has a few to play with.

Okay, well most of the kids had fun most of the time...

And here's a picture of the kids on Valentine's Day, doing our annual cookie bake party. Carson rolled out, cut, and baked all the cookies on his little black cookie sheet by himself. And you can see on the silver sheet the ones that Natalie cut out by herself.
