Do-Da & Grandpa's Easter Gifts

I gave Niko & Ryker Do-Da and Grandpa's Easter gifts to them this morning.  That way, they are not lost in the Easter Bunny excitement tomorrow.

More LEGOs!  This set is from the new Iron Man movie.  Niko is really good at LEGOs... he can put the sets together himself by following the instructions.  Not bad for a 4-year-old!


Niko was so excited about the Spiderman movie that he actually gave it a hug!

Ryker got some baby LEGOs!

And Wreck-It Ralph!

The boys with their Easter gifts.  Thank you so much for the presents Do-da and Grandpa!!!!

Grandma & Grandpa "O" Easter Gifts

Grandma & Grandpa "O" are too good to our kids.  They love them for sure!  Niko was super excited to 'open his surprise' from Grandma & Grandpa "O" for sure!  It was great leverage for dinner time.  He cleaned his plate in no time flat!

Neil looks very handsome in his Luigi hat.  Ryker was excited to play with the wrapping paper.  Then he proceeded to eat the very cute bunny.

Big thanks to Grandma & Grandpa "O!"  You guys are too sweet to us!

Getting CON ready!

 We are getting CON ready!  The hat fits over his giant head, but his face isn't big enough for the mask part.

Niko wanted to try the Spiderman mask on too... but you know that wouldn't work.  Niko's head is almost as big as mine!

Happy 'Peter Parker!'

St. Pat's Day Parade


Over the weekend, we went to the Blue Springs St. Pat's Day Parade.  It's know as the world's 'Shortest & Smallest' St. Pat's Day Parade.  The first photo is the actual parade.  That's right, 4 people walk across the street from the Soda Fountain to The Keg.  That's it!  They carry an ice cream float with them because (and I quote) "You can't have a parade without a float."

Then the crowd follows the bagpipers across the street to The Keg.  Considering how cold and gloomy it was, I was pretty glad it was so short.  :)

 Niko grabbed a hug from the Chamber of Commerce mascot.


The many faces of Niko-chan.  We grabbed a scone an hot chocolate after the parade.  Easily the best part of the day for a certain someone.  :)

Happy St. Pats!

I'm surprised they had enough corrugated paper to go around his head!  Ryker's Daycare just sent me this picture of him all ready for the weekend.  :)

Family Portrait

Our first family portrait via Niko-chan.  Not sure what's happening with his brother floating in space....  Neil was happy because Niko drew him the tallest.  :)

This is probably a bad idea....

Live reenactment of 'Puss In Boots' in the living room with Godfather Mark.  This is probably not the best idea, but Niko was already in character so Mark joined in.  Who knew that Puss In Boots wore Spiderman PJs, Woody's hat and used a thrift store shield?
