Birthdays and Birthdays and Birthdays

WOW everyone has a Birthday around the same time.  We are celebrating 2 today, one last week, and it goes on.  Lots of Birthday singing, treats, and party hats.

Happy Birthday Maggie!

So don't ever give the party toys along with choc cupcakes, the toys had choc all over them.  Instead of eating the cupcakes we licked the frosting and had more fun blowing these than eating the treat.

I have had this table in the garage, can't believe its been sitting in there and never thought to put it in the backyard.  I put the table next to the sand box and now they use it to sit at and make sand/mud pies.

"Hi Jay smile big for the camera" before you fall off of there.  The kids like to get as high as they can so they can see the man a couple houses down working on building a gazebo.

Cool looking towers they worked hard at and are so very proud of their work.

Happy Birthday Allen he just turned 3 and he thinks he is just as grown as the 4 year old boys.  Thank You for the cool football homemade cookies.

Dr Suess Birthday

Who is Dr Suess and why are we celebrating him this week?  I filled the library shelf with his books and we talked about why he is so important.  Each day we read a different book and did different activites that related to that book.  Our first one was "Cat in the Hat"

Balancing tea cups on our head like Dr Suess then after we got this down we switched up to balancing silly things, anything you can find and try to put on your head.  Giggles and giggles as the items got more silly.

Silly magazine cut out to make silly people!!


"The Foot Book"  Cold squishy blue paint tickled our feet as we made our foot print.  During our circle time we put all the feet in and counted how many we have all together.  So the funny thing is later when I added the number to the foot paper I put 15 instead of 14.  Lol!!  Oops!!  Okay we will just pretend someone left one foot out.

 After measuring our feet by the inches some kids were interesting in counting and measuring the numbers on the ruler.

 Two Fish

"Green Eggs and Ham"
I thought if the kids would experience how the eggs turned green then I would have more of a chance of them eating the eggs.  Yeah it really worked.  Last year they didn't see how and only a few would taste them.   This year everyone ate them except 1.  Our lunch consist of green eggs, ham, green pancakes, oranges and banana.  Soon we will be having a green lunch for St Patricks day.  Still thinking of what we will have.

More Valentine Pics

These are the necklaces that I wasn't sure if they would turn out.  They did end up drying.

                            Oh yes Jay is posing for the picture.

Happy Valentines Day to our mommies and daddys!!  Thank you pinterest for the idea.

During our circle time today we talked about the LOVE DAY.  All the kids brought their goodies to our circle and their faces would lite up when they took turns showing what they are putting in the Valentine boxes.

The process took awhile but it was worth it for each kid to match names up and place valentines in each box.

 Ohh no our boxes weren't big enough!!  Wow I couldn't believe all the goodies that the parents help donate to the party.  Not just goodie bags but we had tuns of treats for snacks.  Thank You all so much.  This is so greatly appreciated by myself and the kids were so excited to have a box full.

Jay brought Valentine sacks that he is placing in everyone's cubbies, because there just isn't enough room.  Beatrice is helping, with her motherly instincts.

The cubbies are completely full!!
