~The Luck of the Irish~
As is Smith Family tradition, we had a Green Dinner on St. Patrick's Day, although not very Irish~ fettuccine with Green Alfredo sauce. That Morning Daddy just about sent the troops into battle without any green on. As we were getting ready to leave the house, Cayden said: "Daddy, what about our green?" The boys ran upstairs and changed into green shirts and Mia's ribbon in her hair was changed from blue to green. What could have been a pinching disaster was averted thanks to the good memory of our little Leprechaun Cayden (He is very observant and forgets nothing). What about Lucky Charms for Dinner next year?

Ever since first seeing the Huge Castle front of Medieval Times on the way to the Lego Store at Discover Mills, Cayden has wanted to go inside and have dinner and watch the Knights Battle it out on their horses. We asked him if that is what he would like to do for his birthday this year and the look on his face said it all. It was allot of fun and he even liked the food that you have to eat with your hands, because after all~ there were no utensils in Medieval Times!
Presenting their Royalty the King, Queen, Princess Mia, Prince Brenner and Birthday Boy~ Prince Cayden.
The show was really great and the horses very beautiful. Mia loved whenever the princess came out and the boys loved the action and fighting scenes, with the jousting being their favorite. Mommy and daddy loved that we went on a buy a ticket get a ticket night and that Princess Mia is still under three for a short while more so it all did not break the Royal Treasury!
Cayden cheering on our sections Yellow Knight, who ended up wining the nights battle and saved the king and queen. He also tossed a flower to Mia from his horse and she thought that was wonderful! Cute girls get all the attention! =) As you can see Cayden really got into it!

It would not be Cayden's Birthday without his traditional Cookie Cake, and it was decked out with the image of "Sherbit" his new Webkinz friend. What a party!
Happy Birthday Cayden!

Cub Scout Pinewood Derby

After "driving" Daddy almost crazy over the last three weeks to help build his car, finally the night came for Brenner to race in his first Cub Scout Pinwood Derby. He was so excited to see all the other boys cars and to race them. He also earned his Bobcat Badge and three Belt Loops (Bowling, Bike Safety and Baseball) at this pack meeting~ Way to go BRENNER!!!

We took a SNOW DAY!!!

It was forcasted to snow 4 to 6 inches on Sunday afternoon and we did not believe, but as we came out of Church, sure enough, it was coming down hard. It came down the rest of the evening, and made for a messy night. The Power went off at around 3:00 and did not look to be coming back on any time soon. Daddy lit the fireplace as this soon became the only light and heat for the house and the kids built a blankie fort in the front room. We had milk and smores by the fire and told stories and answered "what if" questions from the kids. Just as we were getting ready to lay down by the fireplace for the night, the power kicked back on and it was up to our soft beds, instead of the floor. It made for a very fun family night together. As we went to bed we knew that School would be canceled the next day. The roads were all ice and Daddy stayed home with the kids and had a "Snow Day". The day was filled with sleeping in a bit later than normal, snowman building and hot chocolate drinking~ what a day! And look at that Snowman~ he rivals those made back in Utah~ that is a once in decade kind of Georgia Snowman!!!
