Yo-ho, Yo-ho, our pirate and his princess

Can you find Joshua among the 200(yes 200 pirates) at his school program. Their music teacher is phenominal she did a great job putting this together and the kids were fabulous!! Would you believe he is standing next to Sarah, that was not his choice but just where they were in the play!!

Sarah, Joshua, Madelyn and Sophia

Too cool of a picture. The RA's held their annual derby car race on Sunday and this picture is of Joshua winning a race.

Joshua tied Wil and Nathan for first place, he was pumped!!! I think there were about 17 kids all together.

Happy Easter and Welcome Rylee!

Let's see Joshus got some Pokemon cards and a trading book, a star wars book, some bath foam and some Candy. Maddie got a Barbie Princess Movie a Mickey Mouse book, some bath foam and some candy.
Dressed up for Easter

They stood here for a really long time just watching Rylee. Both of them were amazed and so proud of their new baby cousin

Our little princess who is getting so very very tall!

I'm and Aunt, yay!!! Rylee Jane was born on Friday April 3rd at 8:21pm after my poor sister in law endured 23 hours of labor :( Rylee greeted us after a C-Section weighing in at 7lbs 14oz, 20" long and lots of dark hair. She is so beautiful and such a good baby! My brother and sis are so blessed! And Joshua and Madelyn think their new cousin is more than perfect. Joshua is so gentle with her and likes to give her gentle kisses and hold her. Maddie wants to hold her for about 2 seconds then she wants Uncle Ryan to throw her around. Matt says we are going to spoil Rylee rotten!! :)
Easter was great, especially with the new addition, the kids had a great time hunting eggs and opening all their baskets from everyone.
Joshua reminded me tonight that only 5 more weeks of school until Summer vacation....can that be possible??!! Although since it was 50 degrees today it still feels like WINTER!
Until next time.....
