My mom (Nana) & my grandma (Nannie) were kind enough to send some money to get Jarrett a couple of Birthday gifts. They gave me specific instructions to get something "too big, that wouldn't fit on a plane". So, this is what we decided to get! We got the Little Tikes Climb & Slide Castle & the Fisher Price Happy Songs Coupe. I think he will enjoy these very much for the next few years! Thank you so much Nana & Nannie! We love you!
I had to include this picture. I tried to take a picture of him with the toys last night & he would NOT cooperate. He did not want to sit still & I kept trying to get him not to crawl away. Needless to say, he wasn't a happy boy.
We decided to go ahead & put the Castle together so kids could play on it at his party. Plus, I didn't have wrapping paper big enough to wrap it! I've worked really hard cleaning up this atrium. It took a LONG time & lots of sweat to take all the rock out. I was coughing up dirt & blowing it out my nose for quite some time. I bought some astroturf at Home Depot to put on the bottom. I think it looks "okay". I want this to be an area that Jarrett can play in. I'm still not completely happy with it, but it will do for now.
I still have so much to do before his Birthday party on Saturday. I have a lot of cleaning & cooking to do! I sure hope I get it all done. Working full-time & then coming home to a toddler doesn't leave a lot of spare time. Someone want to hire me a maid? :D
