Ella Turns 4!

My sweet niece Ella turned 4 last week and on Saturday my sister put together the cutest party for her.  Ella is such a girly girl and obsessed with everything princess.  Ella's favorite princess is Cinderella, so my sister hired Cinderella to be at the party…every little girls dream!  All of Ella's little friends came over dressed as their favorite princess.  They got princess lessons, read a story, and had their faces painted. The boys headed outside to play and avoided the princess all together :)

She is so beautiful!

Best buds!

It was such a fun party and day celebrating Ella.  She is the sweetest girl and it was great watching her have such a great time at her party while being surrounded by all the people who truly love her!
Happy Birthday Ella!  We love you!

Spring Performance

Last week Bennett had his Spring Performance at school.  The performance was for all of the kids in the 3 year old classes so it was a large group of kids and they did such a good job.  I have to hand it to their music teacher because she does such a good job getting those kids up there and performing everything so well!  I know that cannot be easy.

Bennett did a great job singing but didn't really get in on the dancing!  We recorded the whole thing and he asks to watch it all the time.  You can tell during the video when he gets embarrassed and he threw a couple looks mine and Jeremy's way that were like "Mom and dad stop waving at me you are embarrassing me!!"

This crazy child!  We barricaded him in the aisle with his stroller just to contain him.  I brought so many toys and every snack I could think of so he could make it through.  He does not like to be still but he did pretty good!

Sweet Bennett!  He is on the back row second from the left.  

All done…Phew! 

Walker was so excited to see Bennett when he was done.  It was adorable!

Love this boy!

I took Bennett after the performance for a little treat since he did so well.  He told me I deserved a treat too because I watched him so we all had a little something yummy!  It was a fun day and I was so proud of Bennett.  

Snow and Valentine's Day

I am way behind on posting what has been going on, so here is an attempt at a recap!

Last month we had two snow storms hit and keep us stuck at home for days.  Bennett missed so much school!  The snow was a lot of fun to play in with the boys and luckily Jeremy can work from home so we had two rounds of family time.  I will admit towards the end we all got stir crazy and the snow wasn't that much fun anymore!

Isn't he so cute in his snow boots!?  

When it snows you must wear sun glasses

Making snow balls!

The second snow storm came the week of Valentine's Day so Bennett's school party was postponed because school was closed.  On the morning of Valentine's we gave the boys a few little gifts.  Luckily the snow was melting that day so we were able to get out of the house!  We went to have dinner as a family and had a low key night.  It was fun spending the day with my 3 Valentines!

Checking out his fun stuff!

He was confused, he just wanted food!

My sweet boys!

The following week when they were back in school Bennett got to have his Valentine's Party finally.  He loved exchanging cards with all of his friends.  It was a fun week but I really hope we do not get any more snow!
