I won a gift certificate to a local toy store and went during preschool today to pick out some new stuff for the kiddos. Justin liked this helmet so much that it settled him right down when it was time to leave all the other toys behind; and he wore it the whole way home.

A week ago I received an email from Strite Rite shoes offering a free pair of runners in exchange for doing a giveaway for a second pair on my blog. I had never contacted this company, but the timing couldn't have been better because Chantel was in dire need of a new pair of runners. The shoes arrived yesterday and Chantel was home sick with a virus that's been going around so she got to open them right away.
She absolutely LOVES the new shoes! I did have to take a pair of scissors to them though ~ my kids have wide feet and they had elastic sewn from the sides of the tongue of the shoes to the base inside the shoe. I've had this problem before with a pair that were a gift, so I knew that if I just snipped out these pieces they should fit her fine. SO thankful that it worked (it's not every day that you take a pair of scissors to a $50 new item); they fit her great now!
And she had to quickly get dressed to try them on. But Justin had a blast playing with them and setting off the lights while she was gone :)

The girls have an upcoming Jump for Heart day at their school, and came home very excited after skipping demonstrations at their school one day. Then they decided to do some excercising to get themselves ready for it ~ pushups and jumping jacks and lots of giggles.
Justin decided that climbing into his favorite hiding place to get away from these crazy girls was a good idea . . .
I think we should make this a daily before bed acitivity because they all crashed as soon as they hit the pillow that night :)
