AC is 3!!

So AC has been obsessed with Tangled for awhile now.  When she was sick last year, B put it on and she sat and watched the entire thing. This was a first and since then whenever given a choice she would always want to watch it...So, naturally she wanted to have a Tangled birthday party.  Enter

So I got all these idea of cute decorations(and got obsessed) like braiding some yarn above to be like her hair above.  Making banner using a template and her invitations.

I taped some ribbon on some dowel rods and a made goody bags that included paints of course.

Here is her cake.  I don't know why, but I am never really satisfied with cakes...except for C's Mario's cake:)

We had a "hair raising" slide:)
Good times:)

After the water-slide, we ate the cake and played inside and opened presents:)

AM's Dance Recital:)

AM's dance recital was the first week of May.  She was so fortunate this year to have a good friend of her's in her class.  They are both princesses.  Here they are before they entered the gym.

Most Fridays, Granny's would take AM and her good friend to dance and then bring both of them back over to her house for lunch and a tea party with AC.  These girls are very lucky!!

Here are the girls with their flowers from Granny.

Ms Lisa even came to watch the little angels:)

C just played on my Kindle Fire...

Here they are about to perform...

Me and my big girl...with her new bangs:)

These are the roses that Daddy bought with the flowers that Granny bought:)

Easter 2012

Easter 2012 was pretty low key for us.  B has to work and then we were able to go camping with was nice and quiet.  I had forgotten my camera.  We got the kids up super early so B could be there to see them explore what the Easter Bunny had left them, but he was not around for the easter egg hunt:(

We dyed some eggs as well using this tie dye stuff B had bought and the old fashion was as well. It was pretty fun!!

C's Baseball

C decided to try baseball this spring and I think it was a big success.  I think it was mainly due to the great coaches that he had helping him.  He went into the season barely being able to hit or throw a ball and ending getting a hit every time he was up and making some great plays while in the out field.

Here he is on base.  These are his old cleats from last soccer season.  They were way too small:(

 This guy LOVES cereal.  He eats it almost every morning, before practice and as a snack frequently.  These are his new cleats...I LOVE THEM!  I think he looks soooo cute!  When B took him to go get them, he thought I wouldn't like them because I am kinda a cleat purist, but I really think he looks smashing:)

B is hanging out with some other dads at the game.  Sometime they had to help in the dugout, outfield, or baselines.  One time B had to be like an umpire...

Granny and Pops can to support C at some games:)

 Here is C in his new cleats in his super batting stance...doesn't he look smart...?

The girls did really well at the games.  They made some friends with other little sisters there and either brought strollers to race wound with during the games or a blanket to spread their toys out on to play with.  I was always surprise how well they played at the baseball games.  They never complained about going...not like soccer games.  I don't know if it was the shade or their new friends...
