Andrew's Happy Birthday Book

Andrew was so pumped when I picked him up from school today.  He not only brought in cupcakes to share while everyone sang him happy birthday but the entire class decorated a page and wrote what they like about Andrew.  What a cute idea.  I guess he even went into the other kindergarten teachers room and decorated the cover while the class decorated their pages.  That way he would be completely surprised.

Happy Birthday Andrew!!!

We had homemade pizza and sundae's to celebrate Andrew turning 6 tonight.  I love his excitement and the way he hugs James.  It's been a fun day.

This little guy is tuckered out from all of his birthday building today!!!

Andrew Opening Jabba's Palace

Last March James found Jabba's palace.  This Lego was no longer being made or sold.  And he found it.  So when he did we purchased it and have hidden it since.  Today since Andrew had a snow day James came home for lunch and we let him open it.  Andrew has been wanting Jabba's palace for a long time.  As you can see from the video he was very excited about it.  He worked all day and finished before dinner.  He built it all by himself.  After he was done we connected it to The Rancor Pit.  

I don't know if that smile can get any bigger.

Good Morning Birthday Boy!!!

Someone got a snow day for their birthday!!!!  I guess we'll have to do some extra special things today....

My Birthday with the people I love the most!!!!

My sweet family took great care of me today!  Breakfast and presents in bed, a personal announcement at church (James), we went out to the Olive Garden for lunch, I took a nap, went to the gym, and enjoyed an evening with good friends.  It was a nice birthday (all except the turning 35 part).  I love each of these pictures I needed to post them all (even Andrew's crazy one...because it is him).  I am blessed!

Andrew got his hair washed!!

Andrew was in desperate need of a haircut and I really wanted him to get it before his birthday.  We weren't going to be able to make a trip to Charlotte for our favorite barber to cut his hair so I took him to my favorite lady hairstylist Allison.  Allison is a great girl I know from the gym.  She did great with Andrew and even gave him a special hair wash (per his request).  He felt like quite the big boy!!!

Adeline's Fourth Basketball Game 2015

I thought this game was going to be like the other game two weeks ago.  The team we were playing was missing three of their players (apparently all second string).  So they only rotated two players in at a time.  Thankfully we hung in there with them and it wasn't a blow out like the last.  We didn't come away with a win but we played hard and the kids had a good time.  I continue to be impressed by Adeline's hard defense.  I'm sure if I were the mother of the girl Adeline was guarding I would ask her to give her some space.

I got to spend the day with this sweet baby.  Recently my friend Rebecca adopted this beautiful baby boy.  He was been prayed for for over two years.  I am beyond excited for her and the completing part to their great family.  Today Silas and I hung out so that Rebecca could have some much needed "me" time.  I didn't mind one bit.  I kept him in my arms the entire time and it was marvelous!!!

Brooke and Gabby's Birthday Parties....Rainbow/Hello Kitty

After Adeline's game we all headed into the van and got on the road.  We made it to Goshen for the girls fun parties.  There were a lot of fun crafts for the kids, colored rainbow water, an awesome rainbow decoration, Hello Kitty pizza's, rainbow caramel corn, and cute take home bags where Andrew's had special "boy" things that he might enjoy more than girly things.
Can't believe the girls are 6 and 4.  Time really does seem to go by fast.

Adeline's Third Basketball Game 2015

Adeline continues to improve in her basketball skills, she is gaining speed and confidence.  I enjoy watching her play and have fun.  It's so great to have James as her coach.  You can probably sense a different tone with this post verses the last basketball post.  And that is because this game was divided evenly with our team.  It was a close, fun game and we won!

And a big thank you to Grandpa Bean for driving up to watch.  It's always nice to have people cheering for you from the stands.  Especially when it's someone different than your mom and brother.

Brayden's Birthday Party

Winter birthday's can be fun.  Brayden's was at Kangaroo Palace and the kids were so excited to go.  They enjoyed 1.5 hours of bouncing and then came and had cake and ice cream.  It was a fun night and everyone was exhausted when we left.
Andrew scared me a couple times with his flip slides.  I was just waiting for him to land on his neck.  Thankfully his little body is pretty flexible and tough.  Adeline got so hot she was down to her tank.

Green Eggs and Ham

Andrew does such a good job sounding out his words.  He does better than Adeline did when she was in Kindergarten.  Andrew and I started reading The Cat in the Hat together.  Tonight I caught him and Daddy reading Green Eggs and Ham.  They each took a turn reading a page.
