Asher's 3rd Birthday Party

A few weeks ago we had Asher's birthday party. He is obsessed with the movie Cars, so we had a Cars party. The food station was Flo's V8 cafe. I made a fruit pizza, which was a big hit.
I made all the kids their own driver's license, which they picked up at the Sheriff's Station.
At the Tow-Mater Station the kids could tow out cars.
At Ramon's House of Paint all the kids picked their own car and painted it.
Piper had a fun time walking around.
Asher was very thrilled with the unlimited juice box rule of the day.

Asher had such a good time with all his friends.

Asher is now in preschool and he loves it. He feels so grown up wearing his backpack. He still insists on sleeping with it at night. He is doing really well, and his teachers say he listens and has a lot of fun. They also mentioned that Asher never forgets to remind them about snack time. I really hope that he will continue loving school.

So behind

I have all these wonderful posts to put up, but am a little overwhelmed right now. I am throwing up constantly. Any spare energy I have I am putting towards the kids (who are currently living off PB sandwiches because I can't stand the smell of anything else), tutoring, and this grad class that is sucking the life out of me. I will try to do a real post soon.

Asher is 3

My little guys is three now. His birthday was on Saturday and we started the day by heading up to the zoo. It was really hot so we didn't look at all the animals this time.
Asher of course wanted to spend the day pushing the stroller. Piper enjoyed looking at some of the animals but really wanted to show off her walking skills.
At the front of the zoo there are a bunch of fountains. Asher stripped down to his undies and had a blast running around. Piper really enjoyed the freedom as well.

We went out to lunch and the kids finished the day by going to the park with Nate after dinner. I can't believe Asher is three now. He amazes me every day. He is so outgoing and loves to try new things. He is so smart and has a fantastic memory. It is truly an honor to be his mom. I love him more than I thought was possible. I'm so excited to see what the next year will bring for him.

Lately I've been crying a bit more than usual. I give into tears easily during movies, but lately it's been a bit more than that. I've cried through most episodes of 24 (even though I know Jack will live until the next season). Today I hit a new low. About 2 weeks ago we ordered a four-wheeler for Asher for his birthday. I received an e-mail today from amazon saying the seller I ordered from was out of stock. I went to the website and saw that other sellers had the item, it was just more expensive and I would have to pay for shipping (the first one I ordered had free shipping). I called up amazon to see if I could pay what I originally payed and see if they would cover the cost of shipping. The guy I spoke to said no and we talked about it for a while and I asked to speak to his supervisor. I didn't want to order something else because we already received the charger and battery for our first order. As soon as the supervisor got on the phone I lost it. Not just a few tears, all out sobbing. I was trying to explain that this was for my son's birthday and how we wouldn't have a present for him and we couldn't pay anymore. The guy was so stunned and I think he just wanted to get the crazy lady off of the phone that he agreed to cover the shipping cost. I hope my hormones settle out soon.
