First Grade!!

Madison started the big first grade last week! Madison has been so excited to eat lunch at school and go for the whole day!  Her teacher is Mrs Nuttall, and we just love her.  I can't believe she goes all day and doesn't have lunch with me anymore :(  Madison loves first grade, and tells me all the things she does at school. This week in school they get to start going to computers, library and art, she can't wait.  We are so lucky to have such a sweet, wonderful, cute little goose! We love you and have so much fun at school!

Hunter's 4th Birthday

My little guy is now 4 years old! Where does the time go. Hunter has been talking about having a Jake and the Neverland Birthday Party for months, it is his favorite show on Disney channel and after seeing Jake at Disneyland that is all he talks about. We also decided to have a friend party, he was so excited to invite all his friends. The night before the party I blew up the long balloons and made balloon swords for the kids to have sword fights.
At the kids party we had a bounce house for the kids to play in, we had the balloon swords, I was going to have a little treasure hunt and pin the sword on Jake, but the boys just wanted to jump from the bounce house to the trampoline, then to the play set and swings. We had pizza, cupcake and ice cream. Hunter had so much fun opening all the present, then it was back to the bounce house.
Later that same night we had the family party. Mom made yummy chicken, lots of yummy salads and sides. Hunter was so excited opening all his present, he loves to play with Madison's big kid Lego's, so he got lots of Lego's from everyone, a basket ball hoop, pirate ship and Jake's ship with all the charaters. He also wanted everything put together the second he opened it. Hunter had a wonderful birthday, we love you Hunter!! Happy 4 th Birthday!!
