# 3 Goes to School

Dimon started school on his birthday! All 3 of my babies are now in school. I insisted on driving him the first day, then moped until they all 3 got home, even though Andy took me to the bookstore. So this pic is of him getting on the bus the 2nd day. My big boy.... not my baby anymore, until he is tired, then he is my baby.

look what happens when...

So i just found the pics of this. Riddle: What makes a wall look like a rippling pond?
tick... tick... tick.. tick...
when your heating vent from the dryer comes off its attachment in the wall and all that hot humid air just floats around inside the wall! this is the result...

by the way this happened in August... we now have a wall in the boys room that has no drywall up!

Dimon turns 3!!!

So my baby turned 3! October 21st he turned 3 and had a small family party! Ti-Chi, Papa, Nana, Daddy, Mommy, Xander, Izzy, Audrey, Israel, Nathan, Julian were all there! He had a dinosaur cake (because not only did we see Walking with Dinos, but the Children's Museum has increased that love!) So dinos were the focus! However the Thomas the Train from Ti-Chi and Chi-Chi was the winner. After he opened that, which was first, he really didn't care about anything else. He was a happy boy! He loves his toys and all the attention he gets on his day. Thanks to all who came and made it a special day for him!

Children's Museum

So for Dimon's Birthday David and Lillian took the kids and us up to the Children's Museum in Indy. We had an awesome time. It was the very first time I had ever been there, so it was so fun. Even if I did get a headache halfway through the day. And even if Dimon and Xan did have enough by the end of the day.
I don't know how many of you have been there but when you pull up there are huge dinos climbing through the glass walls of the entrance. The boys were so excited. And Izzy loved it much more so. Long live dinosaurs and their replicas! We also rode on the Carousel which was fun! The kids all rode on pretty horses and Ti-Chi and Chi-Che rode on a pretty bench seat with Daddy and Mommy rode on a horse next to Xander.

Xander turns 6!!!

Xander turned 6 on September 16th 2009! How did he get so big? We all (Xander, Izzy, Dimon, Andy, Ti-Chi, Che-Chi (both Andy's parents), Nana, Papa (my parents), Uncle Ryan, and me, went to Great Times in Indy. It is a super fun and everyone should go at least once. They have a huge arcade where of course you can earn tickets to get prizes, and they also traditional arcade games like Pac-Man. They also have a go kart track, water bumper boats, and a huge tunnel ball pit thing. We went up on the Sunday after his birthday. It was great. We had his cake, a cars cake of course there at the arcade and then a few hours of playing and then to dinner. So my little boy is not so little anymore. Makes me sad . But I know he has to grow up. This is was harder than Izzy's last party where she turne 7. I'm not sure why but it was. Maybe its because I still call him my baby and he doesn't protest it. But he will forever be my little Xander man, who is the bestest little baby Xander in the whole wide world?

Tournament now involves a family...

So we went to Tournament in Sept. the weekend before Xan's birthday and here are some pics from it. Izzy for the first time placed 2nd and the only reason she did was because the other girl she was against a girl who was doing a more advanced form, and they gave her the points. Andy and I both placed. We originally were in the same group but they split us into men and women groups. Andy placed 3rd, I placed 1st in one steps. We didnt place in our forms. No surprise on my part, Andy blames his on stepping out of bounds, which is very possible. Izzy placed 2nd in forms, 3rd in weapons which is really good considering that she had only been working her staff again for 2 weeks and she was terrribly distracted by the big jumpy thing in the other side of the gym, and 2nd in one steps. I love competing again, I did forget how grumpy I get when I do compete. Sorry. Can't help it. I am not a gracious loser. Gee I wonder where Izzy gets it?

The guy in the pic with Andy is from our school. His name is Jeremy. He cleaned up!
We don't have a pic of me with my trophy and the pics Izzy took of my onesteps are far from flattering So here is a pic of me sitting with my tournament buddy Debbie from Tennessee. We have a blast together.

The Reynolds make an apperance

So we finally got Mel and Joe and Bria up here for a short visit in September. labor Day.
Here are some pics...

Welcome home Paul!

So this is an official welcome home to Andy's cousin Paul, who has been serving overseas in Iraq. The pictures below tell you the great welcome the kids gave him, he is their favorite cousin on that side after all.

Jennifer's wedding

On August 22nd 2009::::::
So we want to say congrats to a dear friend and the best babysitter ever! Jennifer Lee-Bush (Jenness) is now married to her high school sweetheart Brandon! Her wedding was also the sight of Izzy's first dance (with someone other than her daddy). We still have no idea what his name is. He just came up to Izzy and asked her to dance after she had been out on the floor with her brother and daddy. Here are some pics. I really need to send her some of these. huh something else I am behind on...

State Fair Pics... really really late

So this is from August again, but we are having trouble keeping up with pics right now. Anyway shortly after school started the State Fair started, and yes true to my redneck nature and need to go, we pulled the kids out of school and went to the fair. Yes I told them the kids were sick, and no I don't feel bad about it. I'm not the only one that did this and I don't care. We had fun. Everytime we go somewhere Izzy wants to get her face painted, so first thing this is what we did. Xander was not really sure what to think of this. As you can see. Dimon was annoyed he couldn't be right in the way to watch the painting. Later in the day we had to wash it off because it was itching but this is a picture of her with Miss Indiana. Cute huh! We rode an elephant after watching the kids first circus, and then at the end of the day you can see the result, Xan is asleep in that picture.We had a blast and I will do again next year!
