Kindergarten Open House

Tonight we went to the open house at Ava's elementary school. Open House is where all the classrooms are opened up for family and friends to see what the students have studied during the year, and to view various projects. It was fun to see what Ava has done during the year, as well as to see her friends and her teacher (who has been on bedrest for the past few months). It brought back memories of when I was in school and was excited for my family to see my classroom and all the work I had done during the year.

Keira turns 2!

On Cinco de Mayo our third daughter, Keira, turned 2. We celebrated with dinner at Chevy's, followed by cupcakes and opening presents at home. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with. She's fearless - she climbs on and over anything and everything, and can hold her own with her two older sisters.

Some stats on our little firecracker:

Height: 32 inches
Weight: 25 lbs

- loves to say "Don't be late!"
- favorite toys are her baby doll and stroller
- will often walk around the house wrapped up in her blankie
- when she wants to be held, she will back up into your legs
- loves to pat baby Serena on her head
- will eat almost anything
- enjoys building towers on the Lego table

Fun times at Chevy's!! We always knew Keira was a party girl.
