Marvel Universe Live

One of Dane's birthday presents was tickets to the Marvel Universe Live show at Reliant Stadium.  So,   we went on a special date Sunday and we had a great time.  The show was better than what I was expecting! I would definitely compare it to one of the stunt shows we saw at Disney World.  It was that good! We got there a little early and looked around at all the shops and Dane got to pick out a little fun item, and a couple treats and then it was time for the show.  His eyes were glued on the performance the entire time which was about 2 hours long.  He loved everything about the night!!  
Good Times!!

Valentine's Day!!

Dane heading out to school the day before V-day looking super cute in his pink shirt.  He's not a fan of pink or anything girly and made it quite clear that Valentine's day was a girl holiday.  WHAT??? Where did he hear that from?  He told me "Mom, look around it's all about hearts and loooove and the color pink, it's a holiday for girls.  Why doesn't boys get a holiday??"
SIGH.  He's getting big, and just like a  typical man!! HAHA  
But, he humored me and wore his pink polo I got him last year to school.  And even though he had his opinions about it, he sure was excited to bring his valentine cards to school and get a little love present from me!

I sent Dane to school with a cute v-day gift for his teacher.  A box of valentine brownies, a cute spatula and a heart cookie cutter.  I stole the idea from Pinterest, not going to lie.  But, I thought it was super cute.  I took a picture of it before I had Dane sign it.  He told me that I needed to sign my name because it was all my idea and I was the one that paid for it.  HaHa He's so smart it kills me.  
Jace in one of his V-day shirts.... this one I found in Dane's hand me downs! It's so cute, and I had forgotten about it!

Dane's school doesn't do Valentine parties which is disappointing for me because I loved that holiday growing up.  But, they exchange cards and treats attached at the end of the day.  Dane was so proud of the bag he made to hold his cards.  Yes, he made it look like a pig.  So romantic that boy.

And his spiky hair never makes it home spiky.  His hair is super fine like mine and it just doesn't hold the style long.  Good thing he's a boy and doesn't care.  I can't keep a curl in my hair longer than about an hour.  :(
He was excited about his valentine loot.  Lots of sweet treats attached to the cards.  He made me a sweet card at school that he was really proud of.  Even though he knows it's a girl holiday he still has a sweet heart and made me a super sweet heart card.  
I bought us a box of the Valentine brownie mix as well and also a silicon pan with heart shapes.  Can you tell which is Dane's hearts and which is mine?? :)

I attempted to get some cute v-day pictures of the boys.  I had these wooden letters, and had some really cute ideas in my head.  Ha! It was super hard with Jace! He just wanted to eat the props or play with them.  

I got my lovies a little V-day gift because I love them.  Jace got some Gerber puffs because he eats those like candy, and a sippy cup and a cute V-day sock monkey.  I got Dane some Valentine candy, a Star wars heart box of chocolate and it came with a Star Wars mug, and batting gloves which he has been wanting.

Misc in February

February Fun:

Because you can never have too many cute pictures of this little dude.

The first weekend in February we celebrated Sophia's 7th birthday at her house.  She had a magician come to her house and entertain us with a magic show.  It was great, and the kids loved it.  I didn't get any pictures of her or the party.  :(  But, us girls had some fun catching up and hanging out! There is never a shortage of laughs when we are together. 

More sweetness

Lots of baseball practicing going on.  He has real practices twice a week, but Kevin throws with him quite a bit and then we take him to the batting cages often as well.   I'm so happy Dane did fall ball and has a little experience going into the spring coach pitch season.  He has really improved, and I think this season is going be great. 

We take advantage of the nice weather when ever we get it and do lots of bike rides around the neighborhood.

It's hard to see in this picture, but he got his first boo boo on his forehead.  He tried crawling under my bed at least 15 times, bumping his head every time.  He would bump and cry and then I would move him to another part of the room and then he would turn around and try it again.  

Dane got off the bus the other day and was looking all sad.  When I asked him what was wrong he pulled this paper out of his back pack.  Is it bad that I cracked up?  I'm sorry, I just thought it was hilarious.  Of course, we talked to him about not doing this, but we kept it light because it's not that serious.  You gotta pick your battles, and this is small stuff.  He said that his friend who the corn belonged to was flicking the corn that had fallen off his plate and one got close to Dane so he flicked it back at him.  
The janitor is the one who had him fill this out, and he had Dane and the other boy who was also guilty pick up the corn kernels and throw them away.  I was suppose to sign this paper and send it back, but I didn't! I kept it and put it in my box of keepsakes because this is something I want to show him later in life!! HAHA 
Oh the joys of boys.

This past Saturday Dane had his last golf session for this level and had a little "ceremony" and got a certificate for completing his first session.  He got a certificate, a polo with First Tee on it and his membership card which will allow him to use the golf courses in the program for $5!.  The kids names were called one by one and they ran through the high five tunnel and then had to tell the golf instructor one thing they had learned so far.  Dane was the last one, as always.  I was curious what his answer would be, because a lot of the obvious answers had been taken by the other kids and you just never know what Dane will say.  He'll keep you on your toes when in a public setting.  
But, his answer was great! He told her that he had learned what being Honest meant and how when you are keeping score being honest is extremely important.  Gold Star! 

Valentine's weekend up next!
