Television With Lucy

Lately Lucy has been obsessed with the show Super Hero Squad, which I must admit is a welcomed break from My Little Pony. It’s a light hearted show about the Marvel super heroes, the regular being the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Captain America and the Silver Surfer, though there are many episodes that involve other of Marvels super heroes like the X-Men and the Fantastic 4. Not only has Lucy become obsessed with watching these super heroes but she is now into playing super heroes as well. Here she is with a group of her little friends playing super heroes.
The show is designed for younger viewers so the plot is not very involved, there is a whole lot of action and a bunch of humor designed to keep kids attention as well as some adults with short attention spans.

First Day of Kindergarten

Lucy had her first day of school last week. She was really excited to be going as you can see from her pictures below. She now attends kindergarten and has loved her first week. I hope her teacher is ready to deal with a strong willed and defiant child. It can’t be the first time one of those has come to kindergarten right?
Her Minnie Mouse back pack, that she has had for a couple of years now, was too small for the papers and folders that they send home from school.
So we had to go get a new one and of course amid all the princess’s, fairies and pink girly back packs Lucy chose a “Cars” back pack. Whatever makes her happy I guess.

Jacks First Birthday

Last week our little Jack had his first birthday. We had a small party to celebrate the occasion. My sister in law Liz made Jack a cake, we didn’t really have a theme so we told Liz that what kind of cake we had was up to her. Liz decided that a Jack Skellington cake would be perfect for Jacks first birthday. She created this wonder full cake and these matching cup cakes to go with it.
Jack got to eat the Jack Skellington cake all by himself. At first he wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, but then he dove right in and the results were messy. Our little boy sure enjoyed himself.
We’ve had such a great year with this little boy. His older sister and us sure loves him. We look forward to many more birthday parties but hopefully he’ll learn how to eat cake without coating himself in it.
