Happy Birthday BOYS!

For Isaac's birthday he wanted to go to ChuckeCheese.  Should be fun enough.  EXCEPT... Anna is still TERRIFIED of Chucke!  TERRIFIED.  But...it's not about her.  She was pretty scared and we had to talk to her about it several days in advance.  That it's just a costume.  That she's bigger now and she probably wouldn't be scared anymore.  But fear is fear.  Nothing logical about it sometimes. 

So when we get there they are making the announcement.  Chucke is coming out in 5 mins... and it's a countdown.  Every.Minute. with an update.  But he was really no where to be seen.  So she was freaking out in a booth.  Wouldn't play any games and wouldn't let me get up to get a drink, play a game, or watch the big kids.  So finally after 30 minutes of FREAKOUT.  I ask the manager when he comes out.  It's every hour at the 30 minute mark...just FYI for those of you who share her fear.  So, she had 30 minutes to play without wondering if he was going to walk up behind her or her run into him.  Which was GREAT!  She had a blast at that point. 

Then the announcement comes on again.  5 MINUTES TILL CHUCKECHEESE.  And here she comes.  Wide eyed RUNNING to the booth.  But Mary and Isaac found him this time.  And we convinced her to take a picture with all of us for Isaac's birthday.  She's such a brave girl.  Overcame her fears for her brother.  I'm pretty sure she realized he's not so scary, because when we left she said, "I think I want my next bday party here!"  And at which point I said, HECK TO THE NO!!!  She enjoys torturing me sometimes.   




So happy HAPPY 5th Birthday to Isaac and 38th to Jason.  Love you boys so much.  You each mean the world to me!  You brighten all my days with your love!  I hope you had a great time celebrating with ChuckeCheese!
