Raptor Romp!

I've been bad at updating on here. I've been meaning to do a post about the Raptor Romp for at least a week. I've finally got a minute and the pictures put on the computer, so I'll try and put together a post.

October 9th was our Elementary school's annual PTA fundraiser carnival. It's always lots of fun. I took the night off of work, so our whole family was there and then Grandma Jan and Grandpa Dave were able to be there, too. Grandma Jan had to work that night, but was able to take her lunch hour during that time, so she was there for Jordyn and Max's dances. I'm actually really thankful she was there, because when I got to the school and started to take pictures I realized that my batteries were dead! That hardly ever happens to me because I usually keep an extra set in my camera case, but those were dead too!

The Kindergartner's did a dance to a dinosaur song that was really cute. Jordyn dance was 50's style with hula hoops. For the life of me I can't remember what song Jordyn's grade danced too! That's what happens when you wait a week or more to write things down!! Oh, and after all the grades were done with their individual dances everyone met back on the field and did the chicken dance together. It was pandemonium!

Here are some pictures

What I woke up to this morning...

Jake's sweet voice saying wake up Mom & Dad, it's morning!! He's such a sweetie! He's so happy in the morning.

Look what I got at

Tai Pan Trading for $7.50. Isn't it so cute. It was marked down to $15.00 and then marked 50% off of that! Great deal that I couldn't pass up!

Potty Training

UGHH!! I hate, Hate, HATE p/t. It is the absolute worst thing I have come across (so far) in being a mother. Oh, well, I've got 3 down and only 1 more to go, right?

So, Jake is 3.5 years old and I actively started p/t him about 2 or 3 weeks ago. He is doing really well, I'm really proud of him. I would say 3-4 nights out of 7 he wakes up dry. He will go #1 in the toilet most of the time without being prompted. But, he is still hesitant about going #2 in the toilet. He's done it a few times, but mostly he goes in his underwear. He actually likes to wait til I put the pull up on him at bed time and does his doody then. GRRRR, little stinker!! I try to make it fun for him. I tell him all the time if he poops in the toilet he will get a piece of candy. He seems to like the idea, but it never happens. We'll get through it eventually, right? Please reassure me that he won't be going to Kindergarten in pull-ups!!

On a side note. I am having a really hard time finding the thicker padded training underwear. With my first 3 kiddoes I didn't have a problem, but I can't seem to find them in the stores anymore. Every time I go to Walmart I look (I just went today, none). I took Jake with me to Target last Saturday to see if they had any and I found ONE package of plain white ones. I snatched those suckers right up! I also let Jake pick out a package of character undies and he of course! picked out SpiderMan.
