TODAY! A Perfect Day!

The dance recital was amazing! I was the parent volunteer so I got to hang out with the 8 girls in the back before and after they performed (this was A LOT harder than I imagined!) But I was lucky to see Adelee having a blast with lots of other girls! Chuck says that Gordie was a perfect little angel in his seat and loved clapping after each performance! was the birthday party! Simply a wonderful time! Adelee and Gordie both were busy doing arts and crafts with all of their friends the whole time! Again, perfect little angels! We painted canvases, made jewelry, decorated ties, sculpted play dough, colored, got face painted and tattooed too! Auntie Jenny, Unkie Nelbo and Gramma and Grandpa were a wonderful addition to the party and helped make everything go smoothly! THANK YOU THANK YOU!

They were very thankful for all of their friends and their gifts! And Chuck and I are very thankful for our 2 beautiful kiddos!

Adelee's Birthday Week with Nana and Papa

We had a wonderful visit from my parents this past week! And our baby turned 3!! Adelee had a great birthday with so many thoughtful gifts from her family! Gordie was very pleased to officially been given Adelee's old red tricycle all for himself! Which Adelee was more than willing to give up when she got her very cool Pink big girl bike! Now I want a bike too!

While my parents were here we did all sorts of fun things! Including 2 science center's, a butterfly exhibit, lots of shopping (mostly to get ready for the kid birthday party this weekend), some sitting around and we ate really well!

Gordie continues to use the potty here and there, but is usually way to busy playing to make it to the bathroom. He does let us know when he's wet/stinky so we can change him right away (diapers have been coming off in his bed now...gonna have to bring out the Duct Tape if it happens again :-) )

Nana and Papa bought them a swing set for their birthdays (thought I took a picture of my dad and Chuck putting it together but I can't find it). The kids have a blast figuring out all the fun that can be had on the swings and slide! They are amazing and play together so well!

Adelee has her ballet recital this weekend and Gordie continues to amaze us and his teacher in Gymnastics. We will take a break from dance this summer and have them both in Gymnastics! (it's getting to hard to keep Gordie out of the dance class--he loves to join the class for tap time--and Adelee can't stand watching Gordie have all that fun in Gymnastics)

The weather has been perfect and the kids are amazing...enjoy the pictures!
