Easter 2018

This years Easter holiday was a bit of a bittersweet one for our family.  After almost 10 years of celebrating Easter at my Aunt Elsa's house, we celebrated out last one there.  She and Uncle Jon recently sold their beautiful home so we wanted to make sure to cherish our last family holiday at their home.  

We had a lovely meal (BBQ by Jake), and great conversation with the whole family.  The kids were are attached at the hip.  I rarely saw Skylar and Madden unless they were asking "When is the egg hunt?"  I put the older cousins to work and had them hid all the eggs for the kids.  

Getting ready to make a dash out for the eggs. 

Wouldn't be an Easter without confetti eggs.

Skylar definitely made out, but I think Madden was the one who found the eggs with the most money in them.

Confetti eggs on Uncle Ron.

On Easter Sunday we were glad to be back with the Finkel Family for Easter brunch.  Janet of course went above and beyond for the kids.  She put together a really fun scavenger.  Skylar read each clue to MacKenzie and Madden and then they would brainstorm together to solve it.

They ended up with a basket full of toys and treats!

Just another fabulous Easter holiday with friends and family.

March 2018

Had a fabulous brunch with all my master swim friends.

Birthday dinner for me.

Unfortunately the kids didn't catch the Leprechaun this year, but they had a blast making the trap.

We had a fantastic visit with Grandma and Grandpa.  They got to watch Madden play football, did lots of crafts, took a nice hike and watched lots of March Madness games.

Paul and Jake even went to some of the regional games at SDSU.

We attended the Bressi Easter Event.  Kids raced for eggs and ran the obstacle course the whole time.

Skylar's Academic Award

We couldn't be more proud of Skylar for receiving the Academic Award for the month of February.  She works hard everyday at school and at home and it's really paying off.

Dance Viewing Week

There is nothing better than being able to get a little sneak peek into the kids at their dance classes.

Skylar was a big goof ball in Jazz class and she seems to have a lot of fun doing it.

Tap, which he says is her favorite was really fun to watch.  She did very well and I can see areas where she improved and areas where she could use a little improvement.  I love watching her in her dance element.

Be still my heart! Watching my sweet Bubba's doing hip-hop is everything I had dreamed of.  He was place front row for the recital routine, which probably means nothing, but for me it means everything..haha!  He has a big smile on his face during the whole class and really seems to like it.  I can only hope he will want to continue doing it.

Skylar is very shy in ballet for some reason.  She never wants to answer a question that the teacher asks and rarely speaks to any of the girls in her class.  Ms. Alex even asked "Does Skylar even like ballet?"  Which I sometimes wonder myself but she tells me she does and wants to continue doing it.  Which I'm proud of her because she is definitely improving in it.
