Birthday recap

We celebrated our SEVEN year old all weekend long on her birthday weekend.  Lunch at school, family dinners/lunch, a roller skating birthday party, bounce house fun for Collins' special  night with the family, and TICKETS TO GO SEE JOJO SIWA!  Not sure she could have been more excited when she opened her birthday present!  We sure had a blast wishing our girl a happy birthday!!

Best gift ever.  (for a 7 year old)

You are constantly writing daddy and me sweet little notes, you love to write in journals and have gotten into bracelet making/art kits a ton! You are extremely well behaved OUTSIDE of the house (hint hint... can we work on that?!)...  but seriously, all of your teachers talk about how sweet and respectful you are and what a wonderful LISTENER you are- somehow that doesn't always transfer to the house and being a good listener for mama and daddy, but we still love you no matter what.  You are extremely sensitive and…


Always playing catch up around here!
As usual, we’ve been busy with lots of fun activities to enjoy!

My parents took the four younger grandkids to the circus the other weekend- they loved it! Mikey and I stayed home and started tearing down our old deck!! Woohoo for new projects!

We just came off of a BUSY weekend! We had four bday parties- Collins’ included!! It was non stop fun!
