I don't think you will be able to read these, but I just wanted everything to be displayed on the blog. The card was made at home, but Michael made the tie at school. Phil is lucky that is wasn't longer because I may have persuaded him to wear it to church. Ha! Fat chance!
We may have gone overboard on the gifts this year, but Phil never hesitates to be the best husband and father that he can be. Sometimes he questions whether or not he is doing a good job..I always say, "Of course, look how happy we are." So anyway, on with the gifts. My favorite is the t-shirt that I had the kids help me make with their hand and foot prints. The
chocolate covered cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries, weighing 4.4 lbs. is always a favorite of Phil's. I haven't made one since Thanksgiving. Don't you want to just grab a fork and get a bite. Now, the shirt with the faces is from MTV's America's Best Dance Crew. The winning team last season was the Jabbawokeez. Phil is a huge fan; he kept say that he would rock one of their t-shirts if he could find it. Well, I found it. If you have no idea who the Jabbawokeez are you should check them out. Here's a link to a performance video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqcUAerkCks&feature=related
Great group shot although Mia really did not want to take that picture..the tears show her protest.
Michael and Mia had a great time at the Please Touch Museum participating in the ABC Games. They were able to try weightlifting, kiddie treadmills and exercise bikes, the balance beam and the rope climb. Do you remember that from the physical fitness test in gym class.
Veronica is on her way! She is rolling all over the place. Sometimes she gets up on her hands and her toes..I haven't been able to catch that on film yet, but what I did catch was her rolling herself right into a bucket! Of course it was funny to me, especially when she called out in her infant way for help.
So as we walked home from the second party, we run into a Delaware Port Authority Officer who offers Michael and adventure in the police car. Oh boy, oh boy was Michael happy. He got to turn on the lights, sound the horns and of course, pretend to drive. That just made Michael's night and we continued our walk home Mia didn't care much about that. I pray that our children will only be in front seats of a police car. AMEN!

This was one of our
longest Sundays ever! Church, Please Touch Museum, the first send off party, naptime, dinner, second send off party and then finally home for a good night of sleep. Anyhoo, at the second send off party there was a hula hoop girl there performing and of course everyone got to try once she was finished. Michael and Mia of course tried moving their little tiny hips, but the hoop would just fall to the ground, but Daddy showed them the way! Phil took that hula and started to work it! I thought the hoop was just going to fall to the ground because the boys in my gym class were never able to do it. If it were daytime I would have a video, but it was too dark. I wish you could have seen what I saw.
