Disney on Ice

This morning my mom, grandma and Alivia and I went to Disney on Ice. Alivia has been looking forward to this for quite some time as my mom bought the tickets right when they went on sale. We had great seats and Alivia LOVED it. We were quite surprised there wasn't a Cinderella or Belle section but we still got to see them for a few minutes so that was good. They are Alivia's favorite princesses! Of course, she did get a Cinderella light up torch which she thought was super cool. It was such a fun time.
 Alivia is growing up so fast!

Baby Gavin

One of my good friends, Mindy, had her baby boy a few weeks ago. We were excited to finally meet baby Gavin over our spring break. Alivia LOVED getting to hold him and in fact I am pretty sure she asked to hold him ten times....ha! Can we say overbearing?? ha!! Gavin has a big sister, Kenzie and Alivia was excited to leave her a present too since she was at school when we were there. Of course, I was glad to see Mindy too. It was a great visit. Thanks for letting us come and play. Can't wait for our next play date!

Isn't he the cutest little newborn ever??

Future T-ball Player?

Alivia was taking lessons from Papa Steve outside tonight. She has her stance and swing down pretty good. We are thinking of doing indoor t-ball at Sports City this summer after her dance recital is over. We will see! She definitely is a girly girl but loves playing soccer and t-ball too!! Too fun!

29th Birthday

Tonight we went to my parents house for my birthday dinner and presents. My grandma made me a red velvet cake. It was sure yummy. I was definitely spoiled by everyone! I am so blessed to have such an amazing family. I love you very much! Thanks for making my day so special!

Play Date at Claire and Colton's House

This morning we went to Claire and Colton's house to play. It has been a while since we have gotten all the kids together to play. These are my great college friends and we are lucky to have all our kids the same age. Alivia is the oldest but her friends already have brothers and sisters so she is anxious to be just like them!! The kids had a great time playing today and the mom's did too! :)

Baby Chicks

This week I brought home the baby chicks I was hatching in my classroom so Alivia could see them. She was so excited for me to bring them home. On the way home one of the other chicks was pecking at the brown chick and knocked him in the water. When I got home he was completely drenched in water laying on his back and wasn't moving at all. He was barely even breathing. Of course, I was freaking out that this chick wasn't going to make it. I ran inside and got Ben because I knew he would love helping because he is such an animal lover. He immediately picked him up and started blowing air on him. His eyes were still not opened and he wasn't moving. It was like he was in cardiac arrest, not kidding. Anyway, he kept blowing air into his beak and then brought him inside and blow dried him to keep him warm. He then let him lay on his bare chest for most of the night to keep him warm. It was so neat to see this little guy come back to life. He eventually started walking and chirping and doing great. The next morning we were so glad to see that he was doing better. He definitely had a beat up beak but was doing great!! Ben is officially a "chick whisperer!" ha!!! Definitely a good story to tell....
