Spring Birthdays

One of the things the girls enjoy doing with my mom is going out to lunch. She always takes them out around their birthdays. We now have three in March and early April. During Spring Break Paige, Kerrie and Hannah enjoyed lunch with Grandma and Mom at Red Robin. Little traditions like this are so important to kids.

One One

Who would ever guess that this little cutie would get so old.
Our lovely Hannah turned 11 on March 31. It was during the week of Spring Break, so we made a fun day of it. She picked banana nut muffins for breakfast and then she and her sisters spent a few hours at the YMCA pool. I left my camera battery charging at home, so we got a couple of pictures on Dad's phone. (I will add those later) Hannah invited her friend Libby out to Red Robin for dinner with Mom and Dad. We picked up a dozen Krispy Kremes for a cake.
Here Hannah is leading everyone in a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday".
We love you Hannah!!!

And so I give you St. Patrick's Day

I am using this blog as sort of a scrapbook for my kids. So, even though I am way behind, I am going to keep on blogging about holidays and events in the order they came up.
We celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a big breakfast.
Kiley usually leaves for school before many of the other girls roll out of bed. Once again they were kind enough to get up early to eat with her.
We ate our traditional golden nugget scrambled eggs,
blueberry muffins (in gold foil muffin papers),
and golden orange juice.
This year we added hash browns with bacon, cheese and green onions. Yum.

All of the preschoolers took a picture in this leprechaun hat.
Most were giggling like this one.

Flashback Friday

We were looking through the pictures on the computer for an old one of Hannah the other day to add to her birthday post. When we do this, I have a hard time stopping. I want to look at every picture of the girls when they were younger. I wish I could go back in time and squeeze their cute little bodies. We are going to scan in all the negatives from my old camera. Then I will really be in trouble. I wish I had pictures of Susanna and Kerrie when they were smaller. I know they had to be adorable. This one is from five years ago.
