What a Bunch of Terrific Kids


What happens when you have a bunch of terrific kids?




The school recognizes them at the school assembly with terrific kids awards!

They were so excited!

I'm the only Mom when her kid got a terrific kid award that said, "Awe man!"

I'm a big fan of the academic award.  Madi can't get that one this year because she is in TK.  Riley got one last year.  I was so flippin' proud.

Don't get me wrong, this Terrific Kid award is great!  And I think it is fantastic...just not as fantastic as Academics...but they have only had 2 months of award ceremonies, and my girls got some of the first awards.

That.
Is.
Pretty.
Cool.

Good job my little ladies!  Of course...Daddy and I already knew you were terrific!

Love you girls!

Madison Turns Five!


Ms. Madison is now 5 years old!  I can't believe it.  Where oh where did the time go?

Guess what kind of party she had...


Yep!  A Cinderella party!  For the third year in a row?  I can't keep track.  Man does that girl love Cinderella.

This year I debated on giving her a friend party.  But, it's so much work, and at that age, parents have to accompany their children to the party, which makes for a bigger head count, and more $$$.  And, I just didn't want to have to deal with all of that this year, as fun as it can be.  Riley got one at 5, but don't tell Madi that.  She had just as much fun with her family this year, phew...as long as you give her the cake she wants, she is a happy camper :)



Her and her sister did a lot of hanging out around the presents.  I should of let her open them first thing, like I do almost every year.


A quick shout out to my Mom.  Thanks for taking all the fantastic pics, and thanks for the cute dress up dresses for the girls...it made it so much more princess!


The decorations look familiar I know.  Same ones I buy every year from Party City.  I saved them this year just in case.  Unfortunately, I'm thinking princess themed parties might be a thing of the past starting next year.


Madi had fun greeting her guests at the door :)


We had a fun time visiting with our guests.  Eating yummy food (Madi requested pizza and spaghetti), and cake!

Here are more pictures of the party...







Time for the birthday song...




And what birthday is complete without a piece of cake, and a cupcake???



I love you baby girl!!!  I hope you had a great birthday party!  So much for staying 4 forever...you broke your promise :)

It's going to take some time, but I will forgive you.  I love you so much Madison, you are my little buddy, my cuddle bug, my foodie, my girl.  I love watching you grow up, you make me so proud!

Happy 5th Birthday!!
