Picture Week

Today was picture day for Alivia's first recital. She was so excited to get all dressed up and most importantly wear make-up. She also has a father-daughter dance but I didn't get a picture of them all dressed up yet. They are pretty cute though. They are wearing matching jungle togas. The recital is June 3rd. We can't wait. Alivia is also excited for her baby brother to be at the recital too! :)

Lees Summit Hall of Fame

Tonight my grandma was inducted into the Lees Summit High School Hall of Fame. Here is a picture of her standing under her high school senior picture. She is 91 and is still amazing and she was when she was 17, her senior year of high school. She truly is such an amazing person. I hope to be just like her one day! I love you Grandma. Thanks for being my role model and best friend for all these years. :)

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. Ben took the day off on Friday so we went to Crown Center to visit the Easter bunny and eat at Fritz's. It was a great time even though Alivia didn't want to have anything to do with the bunny. Saturday morning we went to Claire's 3rd birthday party. Claire's mommy is a good friend of mine from college. As you can see from the picture Claire and Alivia are having a blast in the bounce house. This was right before she bounced so hard she almost bit all the way through her tongue. Alivia and I left the party and after showing my mom we decided to head to the ER at Centerpointe. Alivia was such a trooper the entire time. Ben was playing golf so he left and met us at the ER. It ended up that she did not need stitches but she was definitely lucky. I was so glad we didn't have to watch her go through that. It was bad enough seeing this big gash in her tongue. This was the first of many accidents I am sure. After we got home Alivia slept for almost 4 hours and then we headed to my mom and dad's for Easter dinner. We all decided to stay in ou pj's since Alivia wasn't feeling good. We still had a great time hunting for eggs and opening Easter baskets. Sunday was filled with Church fun and Easter time at the Richeson's house. We had  a great time with family. What a wonderful weekend! Happy Easter to everyone! :)
