Classic Character v. Disney Character/HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINN

Today is Finn's 6th birthday!  I let him sleep with me last night since it was his birthday.  I found that Finn turning 6 was much easier than Finn turning 5.

In addition to it being his birthday, it was also Classic Character Day v. Disney Character Day at school.  Both boys wanted to be Harry Potter so I obliged.

Once dressed I let Finn decide what he wanted for breakfast.  He chose donuts so we went to Nuvo Donuts. Nana called and told Finn "Happy Birthday" while we were waiting for our donuts.  The boys ate chocolate, sprinkled donuts and glazed donuts and red velvet donuts.

After school we met Daddy and Gran for bowling and pizza at Circus World.  Gran brought Finn one of his presents - a giant "Chase" stuffed animal.  Sam also got a "Duplo Chase" car.  The boys had a great time.  

In between bowling Sam laid on the floor and rolled his Chase car around.  

I left a few minutes before the boys did to go to Goodwill and Michael's to buy stuff for the boys' costumes for the float.  While I was gone, Finn and Sam played the games and rode bumper cars.  Finn had a great time, but Sam was scared to death. 

Later than evening Michael and I went to HCA for a parent/teacher conference.  Ms. Raymer told me that Finn was going really well socially and academically.  When we first started talking she started laughing and told me that Finn was so funny.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…
