Peter Pan Play

A couple of weeks ago Ella's class at school along with the class across the hall put on a play. The students did most of the work, designing the program, making scenery, helping with tryouts, etc (although I know the teachers did lots of work too). Ella was one of the student directors and was also one of the Wendy's (she was Wendy the first half of the play). They all did such a great job!

I didn't get a picture on the last day of school, but this was her teacher and we absolutely loved her! Ella learned so much this year and enjoyed going to school each day, well as much as any kid could enjoy going to school :)

Happy 3rd Birthday

So today is the day that my baby is no longer a baby. She is one year older and I can't believe it has gone so quickly! We decided that this would be the year of no parties (I am still struggling with this decision). 

Olivia woke up this morning to a birthday donut and some presents from her sister and us. Tonight we are going to Build A Bear and out to eat and tomorrow we are going to the Children's Museum and Jerry's Sno Cone.
Ella gave her a Curious George movie and an Old McDonald game (she even used her own money). Ken and I gave her a Minnie Mouse look and find book, a puzzle and a Minnie Mouse scooter. 

So what is Olivia up to at 3?

She loves to play games and work puzzles.

She likes playing outside and watering my flowers.

She loves to go to church, school, Ella's school, Grammy's house and Chick Fil A.  She also knows how to get to all those places.

Olivia is really smart!  She can recognize all of her alphabet and even knows a word that each letter starts with.  She knows all colors and shapes and can recognize numbers 1-10!  This week she even learned to write her name. 

I can't believe she is already 3!  We love you Olivia Bleu!

Reason number 267...

Why I love my husband...

He recently told me that all he really wanted to do all day was go to my parents house and watch Lifetime movies.

I really love that man!
