Moving, moving, moving.

Finally. Our townhome will be ready on Tuesday at 12 pm. It will be nice to have our own place again. We're putting Papa to work on his day off - moving the trailer and unloading. I anticipate that Parker will want to do his share of "helping" too. He's always right behind Papa asking questions, and wanting to do things just like him with his OWN tools.

We spent the weekend at Grammy & Papas. Parker & Papa are 2 are bathing buds. Not sure who likes the relaxing time more - Papa or Parker?

We watched some exciting high school basketball - GO WILDCATS! And had a low-key weekend. I made a trip to Target to get the necessities for moving in this week - I love that store. I hit the jackpot for Parker and found a Spiderman toothbrush for $0.84. Wow, did he think that was cool.

Baking Banana Bread + Easter

Parker and Auntie were busy baking up some tasty Banana Bread. It sure was YUMMY!

Boy, did the Easter Bunny sure do a good job of "hopping" to our house with: Spiderman Easter Eggs, a Spiderman Easter Basket, a Spiderman Mask, and a Spiderman dart shooter! That bunny knows what Parker likes :) It was so fun to see Parker go and find the hidden eggs - the excitement in his voice and anticipation from room to room was priceless.
LOVE this photo. It brings a big smile to my face!

Tews & Gwam + Happy Easter

These 2 are the cats meow! Love you both SO much :) Can't wait to see you tonight.

Happy Good Friday + Happy Easter! We are going to enjoy the new house at Grammy & Papa's. Mom already has a "honey do" list for Graham to start working on. I think she knows better than to ask dad. Maybe becasue he'd rather sit and give orders. Love you, dad. But we all know that you'd rather watch than work :)

Read some exciting news on Shannon's blog today. She's such an inspration to me. CONGRATS!

Parker should have a great time finding the Spiderman treats from the Easter Bunny. Was lucky to come across the goodies here.

Potty training - SUCCESS!

Yes, my little boy is POTTY TRAINED! And the wonderful thing about this news is that it only took 3 days! I went online and purchased this book. I got ME ready to potty train Parker. Simply stated, it was what made the process go so somoothly.

thus far, the reward system consists of stickers, a Spiderman 4-wheeler (LOVE Target for clearence!) and of course...Spidey underwear. Parker tells me that he "have to keep Spidey dry, right mama?" Yep, gotta love the confidence of an almost 3-year old.

So far, so good. We are now on day 4 and he is doing AWESOME. I just checked in at school with his teacher, Ms. Kris. So far - NO ACCIDENTS TODAY! Go Parker - we're having a party this weekend with Easter to celebrate :)

To Grammy & Papa's We Go + Happy Birthday to Graham

Headed to see Grammy & Papa this weekend + clean the new house + set the clocks ahead.

I told Parker that we were going to 'clean up the mess that the workers made' at the new house - he was ALL over that conversation. Will be sure to bring lots of balls & hockey sticks/golf clubs. He's into things being the 'same' and 'matching' lately too. Need the blue stick with the blue ball. Got it.

Sending out a VERY special Happy Birthday wish to Graham :) I told Parker it was Graham's happy birthday, and this is what he said "Happy Birfday for you my Gwam!". You are special and we *love* you so much! We will have cupcakes with special frosting (compliments of Parker) waiting for you when you get back from FL.

Enjoy the weekend -

Target Modeling Audition

Parker is booked for a modeling audition with Target Corp. on Tuesday morning! The modeling agency that we work with contacted me about this opportunity. "The photos from this casting will be uploaded to Target's Internal Casting Website, the main resource Target uses to cast for ALL of their projects: Signage, Packaging, Circular, Special Projects, etc., not just the Kids Catalogs."

We are going to the Rau + Barber Photography Studio in downtown Minneapolis. The instructions for his wardrobe are: trendy-casual. Hmm...not sure what I should dress him in. Any suggestions? Leave me a post and I'll send you Parker's "official" autograph! ...it is now consisting of 'snakes' and 'circles' when he draws :)

Happy Thursday!

Parker is into all things Spiderman lately. We watched Spiderman 3 and he is in love with it. As we are working on potty training, I think the *spidey undies* just might do the trick! So far this week, he's made it 4+ times every day at school being a big boy. So proud of him!

The color quality isn't the greatest on this - but turn up the volume and listen to the excitement in Parker's voice about our trip next week!!!
