Birthday Kids

Hallie celebrated her fourth birthday on March 27.  This happened to be the same day that Monsters vs. Aliens came out so she took two of her friends out for ice cream and a movie.  She had such a fun time being the birthday girl.  That night we went out for dinner and she got to pick her favorite place, The Pie.  I can't believe that she is already four.  She is such a sweet little girl, but also has a feisty side too.  She is definitely an entertainer.  Everything that comes out of her mouth is in song form.  She loves Sponge Bob and Barbie movies and she loves making her brothers laugh.  She loves playing with her friends, going to her singing lessons, and dressing up as anything.  I am so grateful that she is part of our family.  She keeps me laughing and brings such happiness to our lives.

Ethan turned six on April 19.  My how time flies!  My baby is now six years old, is getting ready to graduate from kindergarten, has his first loose tooth, and looks like a big kid instead of my little Ethan.  He is very in to watching big people movies with his dad so he decided to have a spy/mission impossible party.  He invited six of his friends over for "agent training".  They had target practice with water balloons, a race to see who could get their disguise on first, and had to solve clues to find their goodie bags.  It was fun to finally have a birthday party where the kids could actually understand and follow through with games.  That night, Ethan's choice for dinner was The Mayan.  He loves that place, however mom and dad do not! (it's a good thing birthdays only come once a year)  Ethan is your typical crazy boy.  He does pretty well on his own, but when you get him together with his friends trouble is on the way.  He is very smart and especially loves doing math.  He is such a good big brother.  He lets Hallie win at games and absolutely loves Dylan.  He is so sweet and is becoming such a help to me.  I think your first born always holds a special place in your heart!

Hey Gina! It's about time you posted something! {wink, wink!} Anyway, I can't believe how fast your kids are growing. They are absolutely adorable and should be Gap models or something! I'm glad you had such fun celebrations! I hope to see you soon. :)
