Little Ballerinas

 Our little friend Avonlea just turned three and had a ballerina birthday party yesterday.  The girls all got dressed up in their tutus and had fun learning some ballet.  Molly really likes ballet so this party was right up her alley.  It took Rayna awhile to warm up, but when she did she loved it too.  Sweet little ballerinas!   
 This is how Aaron felt about being stuck at a ballerina birthday party:

Super Saturday!

 We had a super Saturday!  My friend Tinera came over with her daughter and we got to hang out with them for awhile.  We got some fresh strawberries and then went out for ice cream.  Then tonight, we had dinner with the Newmans.  It was a fun day!

Happy Easter!

 We got home from Grandma and Grandpa's last night so that we could be here for church this morning.  Rayna was so excited about going to class this morning.  They did all kinds of fun Easter activities including an egg hunt.  I was in Aaron's class this morning and ended up having to call Brian and Molly in to help us as we had LOTS of kiddos this morning.  After church, Nana came over for lunch.  We dyed eggs and we had an Easter egg hunt.  Molly was thrilled.  She has been asking for days if we could have an Easter egg hunt!  The weather today was beautiful!  We had a great time today!

Easter Weekend

We spent Easter weekend with Brian's family.  Brian's dad has been recovering from knee replacement surgery.  (I guess that's how he managed to get out of me taking his picture this weekend!)  He is doing SO well!  Still in a lot of pain, but getting around amazingly well!  The kids were so happy to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa's house!

 The kids have been helping Daddy plant a garden.  They have been helping him every step of the way--building the raised bed, filling it with dirt, planting the plants, and now they have been eagerly watering it everyday.  They are very excited to see the plants grow and produce vegetables!

Palm Sunday

 Today the kids had an Easter program at church.  It was so sweet!  Molly had a speaking part and she did awesome!  That's the first time she's ever spoken in front of such a large group.  She's come such a long way from her first church program when she refused to get on the stage!  So thankful for our church and everyone who is investing their lives in our children to help them to come to know Jesus.

Happy Birthday to Mommy!

Well, tomorrow I will be another year older.  We celebrated tonight as we have Life Group tomorrow night.  Birthdays are not nearly as exciting when you are turning 30something, are they?  I did have a great time celebrating with my family!  We went out to eat Mexican for dinner.  The kids thought it was the greatest thing ever that I got to wear the sombrero and the waiters and waitresses all sang to me.   Then we went home at ate peanut butter brownies--my favorite!  So thankful to be celebrating with my family!
