Look out kindergarten, here she comes!

She knows her colors and shapes. She can write her given name as well as her nick name. She can count to twenty and knows her phone number. This girl is ready for kindergarten. Jessie graduated from preschool this week and did such a great job on her performance! Since she goes to a two day preschool four days she actually graduated twice!

You are so smart and getting to be such a big girl. You are always dancing and singing and you take such great care of your baby sister. We love that you are so girly but still willing to play in the dirt and have fun. We cant wait to see what you will do next and know that you are gonna be great in kindergarten!

Date Night

Jessie finally had her turn to go on a date with Daddy, so I took her out in the afternoon to get her hair done and of course I had my toes done while we were waiting. Then we went to get ice cream before we headed back to get ready for her date. We pulled out four or five dresses and she tried them all on and then showed Jeff her favorites. SHe made a very cute choice and finally got dressed.
Jessie is such a sweetheart, she told us that we could tag along on her special date with dad. We walked around downtown for a while and then ended up at a chineese buffet for dinner.

There was watermelon a flowing and it was all so yummy. Thanks for letting us share in your date Jess!!

Hula firsts

Today was the first performance of the season as well as Jessies first performance ever. She was a bit shy but very excited, I think as the year wears on she will get better and better. This performance was for the workers at the Temple. Every year they do a dinner and have the girls come to entertain. Cassie is an old pro and did so good.

Here is to a great first show. Way to go girls!!

Birthday Captain

Jessies school year is coming to a close so they celebrate the last week by having a water day and then graduation. School started in August right after her birthday so the teacher scheduled her "birthday captain" day for today. She brought otter pops as her snack for the day and I got to go to school to help out. It was so much fun to put on swim suits and run around playing in the water. Luckily the weather was warm today.

Ryan was happy that he was able to come and play too. He fit right in with the other boys running and splashing. He cant wait until it is his turn to go to preschool too.

Kite Festival

Cassie has been reading every night since January so she could earn a kite at the Kite Festival this weekend. When the day finally came all the kids were brimming with excitement. We parked and got our kite in no time and proceded to set it up. Jeff left the girls to do that and took Ryan out to look at the booths. After a little coaxing and a slight burned rubber smell from too much thinking we were ready to fly. Aunt Malissa kept and eye on Abby at their Hot Zing booth so she didnt get too much sun.
Ryan even managed to squeeze in a little ball play after the kite flying.

We had everything you need to fly a kite, except wind! So Jeff and I both attemped multiple times to make our own wind by running up and down a small hill. Ryan even tried to help. After that we headed to Costco and Walmart to get the fixings for nachos. All that activity and sun was a it too much for Ryan and he

crashed with the cheese on the way home. Next year we will have two kite to fly! I cant wait!!

Abby 6 months

Abby had her 6 month appointment today. She has been coughing off and on for about two months but wasnt quite sick enough for us to treat it until it finally developed into pneumonia last weekend, so her stats are kind of off but we are hoping to get her weight back up in the next few months.
weight 13.6 7%
height 26 in 53%
Head 25% She can now roll from front to back and back to front. She is eating rice and LOVES green beans, peas, squash, zuchini, pears, applesauce, bananas and whatever else mom will let her put in her mouth! Just Thursday she started getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth.
She is experimenting with her voice but isnt quite making mama dada sounds yet. Abby loves her siblings and will smile for them at the drop of a hat. She is a really good sleeper and loves her daddy. This past 6 months has gone by so fast I cant wait to see what she has in store for the next 6 months!

You cant handle the TOOTH

After years of waiting, and hoping, and wishing it finally happened. Monday Cassie lost her first tooth after much begging and pleading for me to pull it for her. Tuesday she had something special planned for her next tooth. So when I came to school to help out that afternoon she said mom pull on my tooth. So I just pushed down on it real easy and it popped out! She got to go to the office and get a tooth necklace and when we got home from school that afternoon (4PM) she said mom is it bed time yet? SHe is so funny. The tooth fairy brought her something special for all her efforts, a shiny gold dollar for each tooth.

A new do

I gave him a premature summer haircut, but he was wiggling so much I left it long on top. He had a mohawk for a few days but we cit it Sunday morning before church.

Need a ride?

Ryan to the rescue with his trusty tractor. A ride around the yard will set you back $5. However he is more then willing to cross the street for free (as long as mom isnt looking).

Now that the weather is warming up the construction has begun again on the house. So we cut out a hole where the door used to be It was quite a dirty job.

Then Jeff and a buddy framed in the door

Then we added the new door. The kids had a blast knocking on the door and going in and out that afternoon. We finished just in time because the weather has turned nasty again and we are back in to the 50's.

Happy Easter

I am getting kind of frustrated with this stupid computer! I rotated the pis so they are the right way but blogger picks them up in their original form and I dont think I can rotate them on blogger. Anyway Happy Easter!
