Judah turns SIX!!!

Judah turned SIX on April 25th!!! This is his last night as a five year old...

now he's six!!!

He had school on his birthday, so I went up in the afternoon while they did cupcakes and sang to him. This is his friend Liza - he adores her!

This is his wonderful and amazing kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Stanley. He adores her too!

Kaki was in town for his birthday this year!

Judah with his good buddy, Joaquin.

Kaki got him a dragon stuffie.

For his birthday dinner, he wanted Golden Corral (I'm pretty sure because they have a chocolate fountain and cotton candy machine:-). They sang Happy Birthday to him!

And his amazing teacher I mentioned up there? He invited her to dinner with us and she came with her son and a gift - she is seriously the best kindergarten teacher on the planet! It made Judah's day and I know it's something he will never forget!

The next weekend, we had him a small roller skating party. He wanted a Minecraft cake and a few of his closest friends came.


 And friends

Easter 2014

We had a wonderful Easter celebrating the empty tomb and Evie's first Easter at home. Her first Easter egg hunt was at my friend Ashley's house - she caught on really quick, and when she figured out the eggs had candy in them, it was all over!!

On Easter Sunday, we had lunch at our friends, the Tucker's house.

My three babies on Easter. Ages 9, 5 and 1.

We are so very blessed.

Whirlwind is a great way to describe our life right now. We are always going and doing and I never get a chance to do anything on this blog anymore. Here is a quick recap of our March and most of April. A separate Easter post is hopefully coming soon! Evie turned 23 months old on April 7th. It's hard to believe she's almost two!!!

 We had dinner over at some dear friends' house. Here are my kids with Savannah and Spencer. Their mama Ashley and I have known each other since we were born!

Judah's kindergarten class had "pet" caterpillars that recently turned into butterflies. They were so proud of their "babies". Here is Judah with his good friend Joaquin and their caterpillars.

The day before Easter weekend, they released the butterflies and had an "egg drop". Each student created a homemade contraption to prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from the school roof. The kids enjoyed it, but unfortunately Judah's egg didn't make it. He was disappointed.

We witnessed the baptism of my dear friend Abbie's daughter, Ellie. Elijah and Ellie grew up together as babies/toddlers - they did everything together, and Abbie is so special to me. It was so emotional watching Ellie baptized by her Daddy on Easter Sunday!

A few weeks ago, Nana & Grangoat took the grandkids to the zoo - this was Evie's first time at their zoo.

Also a few weeks ago, the boys got to spend a weekend in Austin with Aunt Laur-Laur and Uncle Matt. They had a blast! They played at the park, watched a movie, went to a baseball game and Matt tried to throw them both in the water! :-)

Miss Evie had western day at school and rocked the boots!

 She also loves brushing Elijah's hair. :-)
