Light Up Shoes and Spider Man Skates

I know that I need to keep the blog update however, the boys have been very busy lately. Right now my kitchen is still a mess from dinner but, Brian is working on replacing his break pads and Ike is "helping" him. Zeke went down early so I took the moment to show you what has been going on in the Witt home. Ike has been wanting a bubble blower for some time now. He has asked and asked for one. I told him that he would have to earn money for the bubble blower (thanks to Dave Ramsey). So, we made a chart and he had to do chores around the house. He had to earn 20 stickers -- which he work for 2 weeks. Now the chores were washing the glass doors (which I had to go back and wipe down --only so much a little guy can do) and picking up toys, and anything else I could think of to keep him busy. He did a great job and then the glorious day came! We went to Wal-mart to get the bubble shooter (Ike corrected me and told me it was a shooter not a blower --MOM!) When we were at Wal-mart I knew that Ike needed some new tennis shoes. Well, I found some on sale that were his size and thought they were cute. I did not realize that they were light up shoes until he tried them on. He was so excited he started doing a little jig to watch them light up. He said "Mom these are so cool these are what big kids wear!" Well, let's just say he wore them all through the store still attached together with the streatch string. He would stop people and ask them to watch his shoes light up. I have never seen a little boy more excited!

When we got home the bubble shooter was not working correctly so we got to play with it for only a few minutes. However, the next day when we took it back. Ike picked out some Spider Man Skates! Whew, what a day for a 3 year old little guy! Light up shoes and spider man skates!
