Saturday, March 13th-To the Sportsman Show We Go!

We went to the Sportsman's Show Saturday. We figured the kids would dig it because they got to paint a duck decoy and fish. As soon as we told Liv she would be able to fish, she was on it all the way. Once we got to the trout pond, Liv kept making me let go of her rod. She didn't want any help. I kept trying to tell her if she happened to catch one, she'd lose her rod, but she's pretty stubborn (wonder where she gets it from?!?!?!) Jake had a blast, too. Neither one caught one, but they still had fun =)

Liv, pulling on my shirt while waiting for Picasso Jake to finish his decoy.

Jake's decoy took alot of time and effort. I swear he eyed it for 5 minutes, invisioning the paint job before he did it lol. It was cute, though. He did a pretty good job! (this is when he was starting his duck) Isn't he so handsome???

Liv, on the other hand, wasted no time slapping the paint on LOL. Look at that cheeky smile!

March 12th-Family Movie Night!

We decided to rent a movie, make some popcorn, and cuddle on the floor for a movie. We rented "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" The kids loved it. We had a great time, and I think it will become a regular attraction =) Liv is desperate to see Princess and the Frog, but there's talk of red eyes in there, and I'm not sure I am ready to open that can of worms LOL. Liv's been obsessed with "red eyes" for a couple of months. She comments on "red eyes" being on the side of the road. Hank tried to tell her the red eyes were happy animals-bunnies, deer, etc, but I'm still not sure she totally believes him lol. I've tried to explain it as well, but you know. She's 3, and she's going to believe what she wants to believe LOL.

March 10th-Olivia writes her name!

OK, so she's been practicing, but she finally did it legible ( though I think she had help with the a because it doesn't quite look like the a's she writes) Usually, the L I V I are just lines lol. She's getting there!
