Kindergarten and preschool are over for this year. The year once again flew by and left me with kids that are much bigger and more grown up looking and acting!

We went to Frisco over Memorial Day this year. We had a great time, and found fun things to do despite the rain- got to catch up with friends and their kids/babies and see family!
Saturday morning, we went to the Dallas Aquarium. The kids had a great time (we did too). We had been before, but it was around 3 years ago, so it was pretty much like the first time for them.

Both kids had a blast on Valentine's Day. They both received cards and goodies from all their classmates, and Easton got to join in Blake's class party, too! A lot of Blake's classmates had even brought him Valentine cards! Chick Fil A, balloons, brownies, jello jigglers, crafts, games... fun!
Easton decided to eat his peanut buttered bananas as Raphael.
Princess Cinderella even stopped by! Blake was so excited, and in awe of her. She got to try on her crown...
Grandma and Poppa came to town to visit, too. Poppa helped install a new 220 volt outlet so we could have a better heater at work! Grandma, Easton, and I surprised Blake at school for lunch. We brought her Chick Fil A and after we finished eating, we had time to read the book that came with the meal.
Christmas was very eventful this year!
The kindergarteners did the Christmas program at school and were so cute! The songs had cute hand motions and was just so adorable. Blake ended up on the front row which made her a little nervous...
Easton had a Christmas program, too. They acted out the Nativity story and Easton was a wise man, along with two best buddies. So incredibly sweet! You could tell he was nervous too being in the spotlight, but I was proud of both kids for finishing the whole performance.
Blake's class had a "Frozen" themed Christmas party - Olaf, snow, and ice! It was fun and I love that her teacher and classmates always make Easton feel so welcome.
We went to Midland the weekend before Christmas to celebrate with my side of the family. Poppa had strongly wished for us all to be there for this specific date, so we were all curious what the surprise would be...
He reserved a carriage ride through the Grasslands neighborhood, and it was so fun! We were all bundled up and together, which would never have happened without such a large vehicle!
All the cousins!
Aunt Katie bought the girls matching dresses and Blake loved it! She loves Sophia and loves having a little girl to play with like almost like a living doll. My favorite thing was when Blake was trying to comb Sophia's hair and Sophia kept moving and moving, trying to get away. Blake never stopped, she went wherever Sophia went and just kept combing!
Back at home, waiting for Santa... the kids left out chocolate chip cookies, milk, and carrots for the reindeer!
Santa brought Blake a doll house and Easton a Ninja Turtle and Paw Patrol headquarters and a Stretchkin for each (unicorn for Blake, Ninja Turtle for Easton). They also got new scooters, art sets, Barbies, Nerf guns...
For round three, we celebrated with Tim's side the weekend after Christmas. A Christmas season full of family, love, joy, and happiness. Merry Christmas!
