Mother's Day 2017

I had a wonderful Mother's Day morning with the kids making me my first ever breakfast in bed.  They both put together a menu and took my order like a real restaurant.  I ordered eggs, sausage, toast and a side of mango.  Skylar was the waitress while Madden was the chef.  They came up and check on me a couple times and I got to lay in bed until 8:00 AM after my delicious meal.   I couldn't of asked for anything more!

Being their Mom is the greatest gift I will ever receive.  

Moms & Muffins

I love starting my Mother's Day weekend off by celebrating Moms & Muffins at preschool.  This one was extra special/hard seeing that it is my last one ever.  

Madden made me a beautiful flower on a stem, a corsage and a painted picture frame.  

During breakfast all the kids sang this adorable "Mommy" song that brought tears to my eyes.  Since then Madden has been singing it to me ever night.  

The kids also had a little trick up their sleeves as they made all the mom gets up and do their favorite dance.....the chicken dance.  

Madden, Carter, Zachary, and Cruz.

Us Moms are really lucky to have these kiddos love us the way they do.

Skylar's 7th Birthday

WoW......Where have the last 7 years gone?!?!?  I can't believe we are celebrating my sweet Skylar's 7th birthday.  I'm pretty sure all my birthday post start off in disbelief that she is growing up so fast.  For this years birthday party I wanted to do something a little extra special.  I have been itching lately for a party bus and ran the idea by Skylar who was all for it, even though I have a feeling she had no clue what a party bus was.  Before boarding Skylar gave all her friends glow everything so they could light up the bus.

Once the bus started moving the party starting popping.  Skylar put together her own playlist of her favorite songs.




We couldn't get Madden to join in on the dancing because he wanted to stand guard of the door so he didn't leave his post the whole ride down.  He said he wanted to be the first person off the bus.

Some parents even joined in on the party bus fun.



The bus took us for lunch at Corvette Diner. 

The girls played arcade games, ate, and played the limbo.

During lunch they got straws in their hair and we finally got Madden to give us a couple dance moves.


After games they girls were taken into the main restaurant where they did the chicken dance in front of the entire restaurant.  Madden wasn't having it...haha!


We all sang Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl and the girls enjoyed shakes, cupcakes and a tower of cotton candy.

We headed back on the bus to go home where the girls dances some more, enjoyed the views and discovered the champagne glasses.


It was such a fun day for everyone who was there and Skylar said she had the best time ever, which in the end is all that I wanted.  Happiest Birthday to the most amazing 7 year old!

April 2017

Easter 2017 with her bestie.

The Rossitto's hosted a fun early Easter celebration.

Dying eggs and egg hunting.

JB, Bobby and Ollie recently moved back to Phoenix so we had a little good-bye dinner for them.  So sad to see them go.

Skylar celebrated her friend Emma's 7th birthday with a Tea Party.

Madden's 5th Birthday

Last weekend we celebrated a milestone birthday for Madden.  Our sweet little guy turned the big 5!  I kept telling Madden what a big birthday this was and turning 5 was a special occasion.  He on the other hand didn't agree and said big birthdays are when you have two numbers in your age, like 10....11....12...haha!  

This year for Madden's birthday we invite just his preschool class to his party.  He loves his classmates so much and wanted to spend his special day with just them.  

Madden and his buddies, Carter, Zach and Cruz.

Magic Madden is what you can call him lately.  Ever since my dad got him a small magic kit he has been all about magic tricks so I decide to hire a magician to perform for the kids.  They all absolutely loved it and couldn't get enough of the magician and his tricks.  


We even had a face painter for the kids to enjoy.  Madden and his buddies of course went with the same theme.  I think every boy got a scorpion on their faces.

Hudson and Carol.

By the end of the day Madden said it was the best day ever and that he wanted to wake up and doing his party all over again.

As Madden's birthday week continued he celebrated his birthday at his school.

He received his traditional birthday donut on the morning of his actual birthday.  That day my parents came down and we made Madden his birthday dinner....tacos with an ice cream cake!  

Turning 5 definitely looks good on that face.
