Then with every other question the fireman asked, Mckells hand was up. The fireman finally had to say, "Let's give someone else a turn to help sweetie" Which there again totally not like Hunter. You would have to ask him directly for him to answer a question in front of a group. :) Then when the fireman told the kids they could have a chance trying on a fireman coat and hat, who do you think ran ( I do mean ran) to the front of the line? Mckell. She did this throughout the entire tour of the fire station, and then when it was time for a group picture she posed for the camera. I mean hand on hip with shoulder forward pose. She cracks me up!
I love being able to share in these experiences with my kids. That is one of the perks of being a stay at home mom.
While we were there, the firemen got a call about a fire and had to leave. It was cool to see them all quickly dress up, get in the fire truck, and drive away with the sirens blaring. The kids all stood against the wall and waved good-bye to the fire truck. When we got home, Mckell told Hunter that the firemen had to go "save the day". Kids say the darndest things!

Mckell loved playing with all of her cousins. All girls. Poor Hunter is the only boy.
Being 2 days after Christmas, I really wasn't in the mood for making a birthday cake, so I decided to make a donut man instead. I think he turned out pretty cute :)
Lexi was all partied out.
There's just something about a man that will get out and play with his kids :)
Before the kids went to bed, I let them open up one present. Hunter couldn't wait. All night he kept asking, "Can I open my present now?" He was very disappointed when he finally opened the present I had pre-selected for each one of them to open. It was pajama's! Mckell thought it was great, but Hunter didn't :)
