Monkey Cheese….or something like that!

Mack was evidently confused, and who wouldn’t be in such chaos, that the whole time we were at CHUCK E. CHEESE’s, he kept calling the mouse MONKEY CHEESE.  The loud noise, the bright colors, the kids running everywhere, parents just wandering around—all of it could easily be confused with Monkey Joe’s.  Well, minus all the huge jumpy things.

We threw a party for Muhammed, a young boy here from Iraq having surgery on his leg to stretch his leg to be the same, or close to the same, length as his other leg.  He is so sweet.  His dad is so nice, too!  I asked Josh to find out when his birthday was.  We had no idea it was coming up within two weeks of when Josh asked.  Our friend, Ron, said Muhammed would love to go to Chuck E. Cheese’s.  Great!  We love that place….sort of.  BUT, it is the birthday boy’s decision!

DSC_0044As you can see, there was plenty of dancing going on.  Ruby really liked being in front of that camera.  Molly was busy keeping an eye out on when the big Chuck E. Cheese would be walking around.  She wanted to stay far, far away from him.

DSC_0073If this photo ever screamed for a caption, it would have to be:  “Please, dear goodness, put me back in the womb.  This is the craziest place ever!”

DSC_0096There were many families from our SS class there with their kids.  There were other families there and the doctor and some nurses that have worked with Muhammed since he got here.  We are so thankful that the Lord brought this opportunity to us and allowed us to be a part of what He is already doing.

PJ Day!

DSC_0002Ruby is having Pajama Day in her Kindergarten class, and she was sooooo excited about it!  She woke up extra early, took off her pajamas to put on her new pajamas!  I bought pajamas because I didn’t want her to go in a thin little Disney princess gown or in mis-matched pj’s.

DSC_0003Ruby’s daddy said, “Those don’t even look like pajamas!”  It isn’t bad that he said it, but that he said it in front of her!  I gave him THE LOOK.  Thankfully Ruby didn’t catch on to what he said, even though he said it every time he saw them and every time she talked about pajama day!  She got to bring her favorite stuffed animal (a tiny schnauzer dog that fit perfectly in a pocket in her back pack) and a favorite game (Bingo Bears).  She is going to have a great day!

Happy Friday.
