SNAKE !!!!

So this morning I got quite the surprise. Joseph came running into my room screaming that there was a snake in his room and that he had touched it. I briefly looked in his room and then ran up the stairs looking for Ben, thankfully he was home today. After quite some time of looking for the "snake" Ben and Joseph found this millipede and this was what Joseph had called the snake. I can't tell you how relieved I was that it wasn't a real one. So here are some pics of Joseph's "snake" in all it's glory.

I'm a Big Kid Now!

On Saturday Joseph turned 4 and we had a small celebration for him. He picked a transformer theme which was cool, but made me laugh because he has never seen the cartoons, movie, etc... so I don't know where the idea came from but he had fun. I can't believe how quickly the time has passed it feels like only yesterday we were bringing him home. The top 4 reasons I love Joseph:
1. He has the biggest heart.
2. He makes me laugh
3. He is smart as a whip, which can come back to bite me sometimes. :)
4. He sings to me

Suit Deals

The other night Ben happened to be in Goodwill and thought he would take a look around and see if they had anything good and they sure did. Ben found two brand new suits that have never been hemmed or worn that fit him perfectly. The blue pin strip is a Ralph Lauren priced at $395.00 and the other one is a Chapps priced at $450.00. Ben got them both for $18.00!!
I love getting GREAT deals and Ben is happy that he has some more new suits.

That's right folks, Joseph started his first day of Pre-School yesterday. He was so excited to go, which was GREAT for him and so hard for me. He was already to go 45min before we had to leave the house, keeping him busy before we left was a bit of a challenge to say the least.

After school was done it was so much fun hearing him tell me all about his day. I hope this enthusiasm for school continues.
