Alone...with wipes.

I left a pack of wipes by the side of Ava's bed the other night. Every morning since there have been wipes strewn about in the morning. Tonight I figured out one, of the many I'm sure, uses for those wipes each night.

AHHH! Relaxing!
I totally thought she was pretending to sleep...oh no. She was sound asleep.
AND...here is Bennett now a days...cute, and 3 months old btw.

My little Blessing

I love this little guy! I somehow forgot to post a few pics from his Blessing on March 1st. He was so cute in his little tie. Christian was so proud to be wearing the same tie as Bennett. Bennett was good through the whole blessing until about the last line when he let his daddy know that he was done. Here is a pic of Bennett with just about everyone.

Everybody was...

...Kung Fu Fighting!
A couple weeks ago we partied for the kids birthday's- Kung Fu Style! It was loads of fun. I have to give credit to my creative husband, he came up with most of the ideas. He even made all the costumes himself. The kids came in, grabbed their ninja attire, with matching chinese hat, then headed out back for games. The games were seriously a riot! We had noodle throwing, puzzels, chinese star throwing and of course, the karate chop where the kids had to bow to their master and "hee-ya" through some 2=ply toilet paper. The kids really loved it. Then we let the kids dance around to none other than "Kung Fu Fighting". Lastly we let them all take a wack at the panda pinata and enjoyed cupcakes and juice boxes. We had a great time and hope everyone else did too.
