Yesterday, Emmett was riding his motorized 4 wheeler around the house. He stopped at the bathroom, where I was, flung open the door, rode his bike in and states"Seatbelts, Mommy. So we can be safe!", laughed and turned his bike around and rode out. Needless to say, I was in a good spot to nearly pee my pants. I believe he got that one from Dora the Explorer. She always wears her seatbelt and says it's to be safe. Maybe enough tv time this week?
Daddy seems to have more of the mockingbird syndrome on his hands. The other night, Emmett knocked over dad's pop and dad exclaimed "Damn it!". Emmett repeated this word over and over until Luke could get him on something else. Luke thought this was the end of it.....yesterday, Emmett knocked/poured out his glass of water and says"Damn it!" picked up his glass and dropped it again and says "Damn it!" maybe a bit louder, just in case I didn't hear him. I think I was in shock at the words coming out of a two year and six day olds mouth. Luke is pleased that it took him until after two!

I set up the camera to help Emmett with his skates and then he did it all by himself! He is such a fast learner! The way he falls at the end reminds me of skating parties we used to have back in Illinois at Pleasant View. Reminds me of me....finally something that resembles me(I was/am a huge klutz....just imagine that on skates!)

We went to the park the next day since the weather was beautiful and there was no wind. Otherwise we would have had to hole up indoors like we are this weekend! Glad the weather gods were smiling on Emmett's birthday! A few of our friends met up, had a small lunch and cupcakes to celebrate and went home for naps. When Emmett woke up, we headed into town and met Luke at the rec center to go swimming. He loves the pool and it was the perfect treat with Daddy! Nothing exciting for dinner except presents! He wouldn't even sit to eat he was so excited. Basically they were gifts leftover from Christmas(hence, the snowman wrapping paper!) that we never got to. He loves the ramps garage and the truck hauler, could care less about the books I got him, oh well. Then after bath time and PJ's, he got to go to the basement and receive his big gift from Grammy and Poppy, Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Chrissy (and a little bit from his parents). A woodland climber play gym. He loves it. I have been in the basement playing since around 6:45m this morning. He takes his cars to the top and races them down the slide and follows them down, then runs around and does it again. "My turn! My turn!" like anyone else is playing with it at the time?!
We have one last little birthday dinner with the Andersons this evening with a tiny cake for Emmett and the girls and delicious steaks for the adults. I made a cake for us as well, don't worry- the pregnant girls will get their cake too! It just doesn't have the bright blue frosting, balloons and candles on it. It should be a good time.

Luke is hosting the poker game this evening. About 8 guys coming over for many cocktails and hopefully to leave their money at the door!
We find out Monday what we are having. Should make for an extra long weekend!
I promise, Grandmas, that I will keep trying to videotape the singing.

Luke got to have dinner with my cousin Trish, her husband Cody and their boys, Brayden and Colten, last night. He said they had a good time and he really enjoyed getting to visit with them all. Luke gets to hang out with them again on Saturday before he flies home. Lucky hubby!
