Partying it up at CEC

Last night we had Levi's birthday party!! He requested a Dallas Stars themed party at Chuck E. Cheese! Not my favorite place, but I was burned out on having parties at trampoline parks, so it just worked! I ordered this invite, and loved how it came out!

Going into the day, I was worried about the weather. They were calling for really bad storms, and I was just praying that it would either hit early or hold off! Luckily, it hit about 45 minutes before, didn't last too long, and everyone was able to make it!! My two boys before the party started!

Family shot....and potential last family shot as "The Furr Four"!!

Cake table...again all done by my aunt!

They played, they ate, they danced, they sang, and they all had a fun time!!

Levi had a great time celebrating with all his buddies!! And I'm so glad we got it in before baby brother arrives!! AND, more importantly, glad baby brother didn't come on Levi's birthday! I'm not sure Levi would of been to happy about sharing his special day!

On Friday my sweet middle turned the big FIVE!!!!! Since April 1st, he has been talking about it! He has been so excited! He woke up early of course, and we had his presents waiting for him!

Then we had donuts for breakfast before Lane headed to school.

 Then he opened presents...

Levi said he wanted to take Lane lunch that day , so we did. My mom had come into town Thursday night, so we all took Lane lunch, then Levi requested Panda for his birthday lunch! My mom and I didn't really want Panda, so we took it to a restaurant in downtown Roanoke.

After lunch we walked down to Hey Sugar for a little birthday ice cream!

Once we got home, and Lane got out of school we had a little bit of time before it was time to head to his birthday party!!!

A Couple of Things About Levi at FIVE:

*Levi you are one heck of an eater. You are my "good" eater....there's not alot you won't try! And you are a bottomless pit! Always needing a snack!

*Just like Lane you are a sports lover! You love to play it, watch it, everything! You are currently playing soccer and doing so good! You love to play hockey in the garage too.

*You love watching Peppa Pig, Dude Perfect, Might Ducks.

*You love to play Minecraft.

*You are doing so well in school.

*You are my little like to argue your point, you are mister independent!

*You are one funny boy! You love to dance and be silly and you are always making us laugh!

Levi mommy and daddy love you so so much! I can't wait to watch YOU become a BIG BROTHER in a few days! I know you will be such a good BB to Luke!!

Tulsa Soccer Weekend-Solar Style

This weekend Lane's soccer team had a soccer tourney in Tulsa, OK! We knew for awhile that there was no way I could travel up there, but we had been trying to decide if Paul should go to...being only two and a half weeks out from baby! It was a big gamble, but in the end Paul decided to take the boys and left me with strict orders to pretty much stay put on the couch! Thankfully baby boy stayed put!.
So the boys all left Friday afternoon, and headed to OK. Even though it was Lane's team and such, Levi had a blast too! All the boys just treat Levi like he's one of their teammates! It's so awesome that they don't mind him! There were lots of team meals, hanging out, pillow fights, swimming, and of course soccer games!  Our boys, once again, kicked booty and won 1st place!! Here some snaps from this weekend....all from my hubby...

I was so sad to miss but so proud of them and glad they had a great weekend with friends!!
Meanwhile, it was a looonnng , boring weekend for me! I did manage to get out Saturday afternoon for a few hours, and I may have spent a ridiculous amount of time at Target, but it was worth it. That was the only real excitement of my weekend. I did realize Saturday that we had a free view weekend of HBO...score! So that helped pass some hours. I think I watched four movies! Then on Sunday I got sucked into another series on Bravo, Southern Charm. Anyone out there watch it!? So I binged watched season two and starting season 3. 
I felt pretty lazy but I know it's what I needed. We have TWO weeks, or less, until baby boy arrives so this was probably my last weekend of doing nothing and pure rest!
Well that's all for now...we are on baby watch, and just taking it day by day! Happy Monday friends!!

On Monday I had my 36 week appointment which included the last sonogram! Luke is head down (yeah) and ready to go! My doctor thinks he is already around 6 lbs! He may be a big boy! Levi was with me and had my phone, and before I could tell him no, he was taking pics of me...which I'm glad to have them! 

.Other than that, I feel like we are finally as ready as we can be if he were to decide to come now! I'm waiting on a couple things I ordered to arrive and then I'll start packing bags!  Can't wait to meet you baby boy!!! The countdown is definitely on!
