Superkitty and a parade

Today Alex got to go to Build a Bear for the first time for his friend Bailey's 4th birthday party. He did really well working with the lady from the store and getting along with the other kids. He ended up making a kitty in a superman costume. I think that he was most excited about the kitty sized play ipod that he got (mommy got a new nano as an early Christmas present from daddy).

This evening another friend of Alex's, Anna, was in the Chandler Light Parade and Joe and I took the kids to go see it. I think that Alex had a fun time seeing the floats. (the picture of Abbie hanging to the side was because she was playing peek a boo with Joe who was behind me)

Getting Ready To Go

On Tuesday we leave for our big month long adventure to Wyoming and St. Lucia. I am not sure how I feel about it. On one hand it will be nice to see my friend and it will be nice to have a mommy break in St Lucia. On the other hand I have never left my children for this length of time and Abbie is still breastfeeding. Also I am worried about the weather in the Tetons, I don't like being cold so I am not sure how I am going to do. I just keep reminding myself that I am lucky to have the opportunity to leave town on vacation for such a length of time. I also tell myself that Suzy will do a great job of taking care of my kids for me and that I am very grateful to her for being willing to watch them so I can go to my brother's wedding. So far I have a 4 page excell list of the things that I need to bring. I am seriously worried that it all won't fit into the back of my Xterra. (I just ordered a roof top carrier to use, it should be here Monday). Wish me luck, I feel much better now that I ordered that carrier.
