Dance Party

 Last week I decided that our family was in some desperate need of some good 'ole fashioned f.u.n.
I had no idea what to do and not many resources to pull from so I decided that a dance party was in order.
The boys were not to thrilled to hear that we were going to be dancing but once the word party was introduced they were totally on board.
Beckam insisted that we had cupcakes for the party so we spent the afternoon working on some rather unsuccessful cupcakes that needed to be eaten with a spoon... but he was happy.
Cade is now convinced that he is the best dancer in the family {and reminds us of it every day} and Becks is convinced that he is the best DJ ever... and he kinda is.

We had a blast with the music up loud, kids dancing crazy and laughing our guts out.
Gotta love Monday night dance parties.

Cade originals... from about 2 years ago.

I have had these on the sidebar for about 2 years now... time to document them and move on to bigger and funnier things from this kid.  love him.

--Cade Originals--

-Cade was playing a boxing video game with jared. He knocked a guy out and Jared said, "wow, Cade, you jacked him up!" Cade then says, "Yeah, he's wearing a jacket!"
-We were playing the extra games on the furious five DVD from Kung Fu Panda. One of the things you can do is find out what Chinese year you were born in. Cade was so excited and was convinced he would be a dragon. We clicked on his year and a rooster pops up. I say, "Hey Cade, you are a rooster!" His jaw almost hit almost hit the floor and he said with disgust, "A chicken! I don't want to be a dumb chicken!"
-I asked Cade what his daddy's name was and he said, "Jared." I then asked him what my name was and he said, "Aunt Lacey."
-Cade said, "Hey mom, I have 2 pennies!" I replied, "well that is cool, where did you get them from?" He said, "the Holy Ghost." I surprisingly said, "Oh really, that is cool." He said, "yep, He dropped them down to me."
-Cade was playing Madden College Football on PS3 with Jared. The announcer was talking about the Buckeyes. Cade then says, "The butt guys? Their name is the butt guys!?"

We have had busy days, 
busy weeks,
 and busy hands.

Some of our hands are more predictable than others.

Cade has been working hard in school.  He is in the  AR reading program which is a love/hate thing.  Not sure who hates it more.... him or me.  I have decided that teaching your child to read is right up there with potty training... no bueno.
He is doing very well despite the frustration and the "you are the meanest mom evers..." 
I think that deep down he actually likes it {especially math} it is just hard to slow down a busy 6-year-old sometimes.

Meanwhile in the other room.... some more predictable hands.
I know that if there is any type of candy in the house Beckam WILL find it.  
No matter where it is.  
No matter how high.  
No matter how well hidden.  
He will find it.

He is full of mischief but also so much love.  He is my love bug that will stop whatever he is doing to give me a hug and a "I love you mom."  10 minutes later there just might be a melt down and a "I hate this!" but I take the loves that I can.

And little miss...?
Her feet have been busy.
Pictures to come, when I can get her to slow down long enough.

Rock Stars

Beckam had his good friend Trent over to play the other day.  Trent had just gotten a guitar for his birthday and Beckam was beyond excited to pull his out and jam.  
These two were totally cracking me up.  They were full on rock stars whether the camera was around or not, jamming on their guitars and singing at the top of their lungs.  
Love it.
