Ava and Macy's 6th Birthday. The Disney trip was their birthday party and present, but we still had a couple of friends over to celebrate. It wasn't a sleep over but they still wore jammies (it was a pajama day at school), ate pizza and cake, and played together. These are their friends Savannah and Audrey. They have been best buds since pre-k.
Pajama Day/Christmas Party at School:
Christmas: We had a super low key Christmas here at home with just the 5 of us. It was really nice. Santa brought Ava and Macy scooters and brought Aubrey a car to ride in. We headed to Arkansas a couple of days after Christmas to celebrate with family.
New Years: Because we were in Little Rock for the Holidays, we had free babysitting on New Year's Eve and were able to go for an adult dinner with Jon and Emily. I think we MIGHT have made it until 11:30 before we gave in and just rang in the New Year early. : )
Big Girl Bikes: Gigi and Papa got the girls bikes with no training wheels for Christmas. Here is Macy learning to ride. They learned really quickly and are doing pretty good at riding by themselves. Sometimes stopping and turning are tricky but I was impressed at how quickly they picked it up!
Nursery Rhyme Parade at School: Ava is one of the 3 Little Kittens Who Lost Their Mittens and Macy is The Cow that Jumped Over the Moon from Hey Diddle Diddle.
Playing Golf: Ava, Macy, and Ben have been playing a lot of golf. It works out well. Ben gets to play golf and he always takes at least one kid. Everybody wins!
Wedding Weekend: Our good friends Michelle and Chris got married so mom and dad came down to keep the kids while we had a kid-free weekend filled with wedding festivities and friends! It was great!
100 Days of School: 100 hearts and 100 stars to celebrate 100 days of kindergarten!
Daddy Daughter Dance: The community that we live in does an annual daddy daughter dance. I somehow managed to talk Ben into going. Actually, I didn't have much to do with it. Some of our neighborhood friends were planning to go and invited Ben and the girls to go with them. Poor Ben has about 10 years of this because about the time Ava and Macy outgrow it, Aubrey will be old enough to start going.
Pinkalicious Play: The girls and I went to see Pinkalicious the play in Fort Worth. It was a fun day with just my big girls!
Surgery: Macy had tubes put in her ears over Spring Break. She had some fluid in her ears that just wouldn't go away (for like 2 years!) and it was effecting her hearing. We noticed a difference in her hearing immediately! So thankful that she can hear now and she doesn't say, "WHAT??? HUH????" all the time anymore.
Whew! I think that catches us up to Spring. Hopefully I will be able to post more often and won't have to do a recap of the Spring in September! : )
