Just swinging

We managed to get in some playground time this afternoon when we picked Mason up from school. My two blessings and Preston had so much fun! Mason was pushing them and they all loved it!

We had a little visitor today and Sweet Pea really liked her. It was really cute to watch her interact with an almost-one year old. 

Aubrie has a big brother so she is used to being around children.  She was rather smitten with her new three year old friend as well.

"Look Grandma!  She's so cute!"  They kept each other busy for the better part of an hour. 

She is a very sweet baby with an extremely mellow disposition. She's going to come to Daycare one day a week and it looks like she will fit in quite nicely.

"That was a fun show!"

Miracle #3 and SIL sent me a couple of pictures from the show last night.  It was one of those busy action-packed days.....starting with Grandson's baseball game at 9 am, a birthday party in the early afternoon, I had a dentist appointment in the late afternoon, and then The Lion King was at 7pm.

These two cousins were very excited to perform. And I think Baby said it best when she said, "That was a really fun show!"

Our two superstars performed magnificently. I have been told for years how good Showstoppers is and that they put on an amazing production. And they did.......we were all very impressed with the performance and the caliber of talent.

Birthday Celebration

We had a double birthday celebration today.....Pretty Girl turns seven on the 30th and Gracie will be five on the 25th of the month.  Auntie Pat was gracious, and she hosted a party at her house in Mission this afternoon. 

This was right after the pi├▒ata was broken and they all collected their candy. As always, it was a big hit!

A neighbour owns this lovely horse named Roxy and he brought her over for the children to give them rides. They were all so excited! 

Baby has always been our animal lover.  Gracie LOVED the horse, but so did Baby. She was very happy to feed her carrots. She actually didn't have any fear at all, and was slightly cautious in giving her carrots, but it's almost scary to think how brave she is. 

I think she would have ridden her all day if she was allowed. Her smile was so big!

Sweetheart enjoyed her ride as well.......she wasn't as exuberant as her sister, but she was very happy to ride.

Grandson ended up going a couple of times and he was very impressed as well.  Pretty Girl and Sweet  Pea chose not to go......they were apprehensive of the whole idea so that was okay.  

As soon as she came into the driveway, she asked her Mommy, "Are we at a fahm?" And as far as she was concerned, she was.  She loved the goats too.  She really does make me smile....a lot!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks of the blessings in one of their costumes from their show this weekend. 

When I asked Sweetheart what her costumes looked like, she informed me that one was "very jungley."  I am guessing that this is one that she was talking about. Aren't they simply adorable?

Dress Rehearsal

These sweet friends were very excited today. It was their dress rehearsal for their show this weekend! I am very excited looks like it is going to be so fun!


April is always a busy month. All of the blessings except Baby have birthdays in the Spring, and Easter is always in there too. Baseball and softball start, and this year we have three out of five playing. 

My favourite grandson got his hair cut on the day before he turned nine. I think he is so handsome. Of course, I may be a bit biased.  

He celebrated with the daycare children after school with doughnuts. This was on his actual birthday, which was April 4th.

These two three year olds are very cute. They have become quite good friends in the past few months.  It's really fun to watch friendships form and whenever they see each other they always greet one another with a hug and a smile!

Pretty Girl and Sweet Pea enjoyed their time at the river on the weekend. This is one of everyone's favourite places to go when the weather gets nice. Even though it's been cold, I am admiring DIL's stamina to get outdoors on Monday with her girls.
