Asher's Birthday

Yesterday Asher turned 6! He got to help me make the cupcakes to celebrate with his kindergarten class.  He was pretty jazzed about licking the spoon.
His birthday started with a very nutritious bowl of special cereal.  He chose a mix of Trix and Lucky Charms.  
And then he got to open one gift before school.
Silly, happy Asher face.
Everyone enjoyed his special cereal selections.
He went to school, soccer practice, and then returned home.  Just before dinner he got to open the rest of his gifts.
Everyone was interested in this card.
Hey, look!  A swim towel with swim trunks and the promise of swimming lessons.  Pretty exciting!
Now for that bigger present over there.
Sounding it out.
And some Star Wars books.  He's already worked his way through this one.
Then it was time for his chosen dinner.  He picked burgers and sweet potato fries.  Good choice, kid!
Literally licking his plate.  His finished his special day watching Disney Planes with his two sick brothers while the rest of us attended our Maundy Thursday service.  He seemed to enjoy the day from beginning to end. Yay!

Addilyn's birthday party

Addilyn turned 8 on Monday.  She had a party to celebrate such a milestone on Friday evening.  Here's her 8 cake.  Lovely, no?
She's blowing out her candles.
Enjoying the "Addilyn."  Don't worry, neither she nor any of her friends ate nearly that much cake.
Gift time!
Look at all those school/art supplies.  That's a very happy girl!!
The party was the first time Addilyn hosted a sleepover.  The girls (and some of the boys) were all pj'ed up and ready to watch Tangled.  It has become a classic.
A sleepy crew eating some special Frozen cereal.  They may have been awake past 11 but they still managed to be up and at 'em before 8.  Crazy girls!
It was a successful first slumber party and a good way to celebrate the girl.  Hooray!

More Christmas

These pictures are getting to be ridiculously old but we're going to ignore that and soldier on.
My parents came right before Christmas to hang and out and celebrate with us.  Addilyn and Grandma played a pretty epic game of Scrabble.
Addilyn won. She was pretty excited.
The boys played Zingo with Grandpa.
Time for presents! A couple of gifts were for the entire group of kids.  I just think it's fun when they all open the gift at once.  Teamwork!
One of those group gifts from G&G B was this.  It's a snowball maker.
Books. Doodling books.
New pjs!  He was pretty excited to cuddle up with them.
Kids' picture calendar.
Addilyn got a new coat. Pretty snazzy!
I'm sure the entire neighborhood will enjoy watching the kids play with this when things get warmer.  They also got a stoplight to help ease traffic concerns as they are peddling around our sidewalks.
Daddy explaining Asher's car building kit.
"Daddy, I'd really like to put this on now."
"Yep, this is just as fuzzy as I thought it would be."
 More group presents.
It's a trailer to pull with the pedal tractor!

We're almost up to Christmas.  I will get us up to date.  Hang in there friends!
