The Butchers (well, three of them) came to say hi one evening. It was Barbara's birthday and Paige's! Barbara shared her awesome hat, and we had FHE together. With birthdays during the week, we often drag out the birthday celebration over a few days so we can give it the attention it deserves and not let it get covered up by our other time takers that keep us running.
Paige also had a pizza birthday lunch party with Emmeline and Spencer. They enjoyed a tea party with siblings as well and had a grand time playing.
Happy New Year!
We had an awesome family New Year's Eve party, and I'm so sad I don't have pictures! We had our first annual New Year's Family Talent Show. The kids prepared all week after Christmas to share a talent. We invited my mom and Duke over with Duke's daughter Jenna who was in town visiting! We ate yummy food and on with the show...
Jake played the guitar and sang
I rapped... because that's how I roll
Mom made an advertisement for the Bait Sandwich Shop over by Lucas
Duke told a story
Jenna recited a poem while doing some arm and shoulder contortions --Sadie attempted the same moves. :)
The kids each did a dance --Thanks, Kids Bop!-- and then they did another dance. And then they each told a story. And then I reminded them that they were only supposed to do one talent and that this couldn't last all night.
We then did some early stream poppers in the backyard to celebrate that it was midnight somewhere. The kids were put to bed while the adults played games.
It was a super fun night and a great way to ring in the new year.
Mastermind for kids.
She will also be featured on a game coming out called Topple.
Gavin started the messy journey of solids:
Here's Cole attending a basketball game with his daddy. Go Mustangs!
