Mother's Day Tea

Ava's preschool has a yearly Mother's Day Tea in which the mom's come and have tea (or water) and snacks with the kids. Ava gave me a handmade placemat along with a Mother's Day plant she made. She also filled out a sheet that describes me. According to her my favorite colors are blue and green, my favorite food is meat, and she loves me because I play with her. She was pretty accurate. Afterward, Ava along with her classmates sang us a few songs about mommies-very cute. It was a fun get together and time spent with my little girl.

Once again I've been slacking in my blogging duties and am only now posting about Alex's birthday, which was on the 5th of this month. Hey, I've been busy (for real!). Since Alex didn't have a party this year (yeah, I know, mean mom) I told him he could pick a museum to go to and he chose the Museum of Science and Industry. We had a great time there and on his birthday Ava and I took him lunch at school, and later we all went to Chuck E' Cheeses followed by ice cream cake and presents at home.
It's hard to believe my little guy is 7. He is such a sweet and thoughtful child and is growing up so fast. He loves: his little sister, helping others, the color green, chicken nuggets, swimming, ice cream, Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic Tree House, old school cartoons (i.e. Tom and Jerry), playing outside. He can't wait to: be in the 2nd grade, turn 8 (ha!), be baptized, be a Cub Scout.
