Nothing keeps HIM down!

Saturday we went to Tim's work Christmas party.  It consisted of bowling and watching Gavin get a beating by the world.

Gavin's first time bowling started off well.  He found his ball, pushed it down the lane...

Watched it roll down...2 minutes later it made it.  SUCCESS!

THEN...on his second attempt, he decided he wanted to run after the ball down the lane.  Feet went flying and his bottom and head came away with some bruises.

To help make things better, Tim took him to see Santa. This was his first time getting to sit on Santa's lap (yeah, we suck as parents. You don't have to tell us) and it cheered him right up!  He completely forgot about the earlier fiasco.
After Santa, Gavin was ready to get back to bowling.  Tim was up first.  He picks up his ball and as he was bringing his the ball down, Gavin's mouth walked right into it.  Teeth went into lip and blood started streaming out.  His face and hands were covered, my hands were covered, and Kade's burp cloth was covered in blood.  After 10 minutes of consoling, Gavin was ready to go play on the arcade machines.  He was pretending to play on a driving one and three little girls decided they wanted to play on that too, so they started to climb on top of him and push and hit him. Our friend, Whitney, saw this happen and went and saved Gavin and scolded the other kids.  Gavin was in tears.  I asked what happened, and after he told me that some kids were hitting and pushing him, I asked him why he didn't do anything.  He told me he couldn't hit or push girls.  I love my boy.  He's such a gentleman.

Last night, we went to The Roof for part of my mom's birthday celebration (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!).  As we're walking to be seated, Gavin wasn't paying attention and walked right into the corner of a chair.  He got a big bump and bruise on his head.  But he didn't let that ruin is appetite (an appetite that is usually non existent, but decided to surface at a restaraunt that charges $16 for a kids plate!!!) and asked for some chicken, rice and a cupcake.

Here's the fam, minus Matt.  He got a lame ticket for a cracked tail light and windshield and decided he was fedup with the day, so he went home.

Gavin loves to help out with Kade.  This morning he wanted to hold him while I made Kade a bottle.  Here he is trying to calm Kade.  He then wanted to feed him.
Kade feels goooood.

Happy Brithday, mom-mom
