We got hit with a bad snow storm today 6 inches and blowing snow. So I decided to take th kids to Chuckee Cheese to get out of the house. This was the boys first time there. They had a great time.

Wow it has been 7 months now since my sons have joined our family. They have grown so much in that time. Keagan has grown 2.5 inches and 8 pounds. Kai 3 inches and 7 pounds. They went from not being on the charts to 38% now on them. They are right where they need to be. They are such a delight. I am so lucky to have them in my life. They are great little guys. I have a great family.. God is good!!!

This is our very first pinewood derby race. Kai was so excited he had high hopes to take the trophy home. I told him not get his hopes up and it is really about having fun. He was handed a block of wood that had slots in the bottom for the wheels, 4 nails and 4 wheels. I truly feel that is is about the boys and they should at least do about 90% of it. At the race it was obvious that the fathers did most of a lot of them. Kinda of sad because it really isn't fair to the ones that really did it by themselves. Kai was so excited to be able to build his very own car. He drew out the pattern then I showed him how to use the coping saw. He cute it out then sanded it..I did the final finish sanding with the electric sander. Then he painted it and I helped him to some detailed painting. Other than that he did it all by himself. He took fifth over all. He can't wait till next year!!!
