March in the Midwest

Finn, Liv, and Daddy went to the Greatest Showman on it's last day in the theater!  

Finn's FIRST MOVIE!!!!!


In February, Finn began going to school in the afternoons.  Somedays, we're a couple minutes early, so we do some fun silliness in the car! :)  How CUTE is my son???? :)

These 2 have made our whole house go crazy....it's constant.  Friends and enemies, all day long.  

Somehow, this little dude has ended up sleeping next to me in bed every night....

Liv had one a new girl from school over to our house, and it was such a delight!  Praying that this friendship grows into "THE" friend :) :) 

 Avery had the Solo/Ensemble contest in March.  Her Jazz Group got a "perfect" score...

and, her personal solo, she got "Superior", 28/30!!!  Her pianist was telling me that the first time Avery sang for her, she cried....she hopes she can play for her next year as well!  She had many compliments on her solo, and I'm thankful I have it recorded!!! :)

The last few weeks, we have been sick.... Finn was the only diagnosed one with Influenza and Strept, but the rest of us were sick as well.  It was at least a week for us all, and we're not done, yet....

Hopefully once the snow melts, there will be NO MORE SICKNESS!!!

Valentine's Day and SNOW!!!

I only had one to do "fun" valentines for this year, which I am JUST FINE WITH!!! :)

Finn chose Marvel superheros.

Apparently there's a difference between all of them....who knew?

He gave playdough!!!

Last week we had some fun snow, and we went out and played for a bit!  It's usually sooooo cold here so we can't enjoy it, but this time we did!  FUN!!!

Olivia's new room

I didn't do a good job at showing off Liv's new room, so she went through her room and took pics of what was important to her! :)  So, here you have it!  Olivia's room!!!

Olivia's City Wide All School Band Concert

Girl got all beautiful for the special occasion!

She was so "lucky", that she had a trumpet that looked like no one elses.....vintage, old, and ancient, and not all new and shiny! :)  

Practicing the zoom on my new camera!

Do you see her up there???

How about now? ;)

Honor Choir

Liv decided that she was going to audition for the state honor choir this year, and she made it!  

She had numerous practices during the months leading up to the concert.

Concert day, she got to spend the whole day at the University with all these kiddos, singing!

Us adults got to attend their concert in the evening, and it was sooooo pretty!

Miss S....we just think she is wonderful!!!

So proud of our girl!  Hope she keeps up with music!!!

end of January

This is how we all felt when we had to be back to "life" on Monday....

Finn got his class picture back, and I just had to post it again, cause I just think he's so yummy!

 We spent the week re-cooping from being gone.  When Saturday came, Finn and Liv wanted to do some baking!

Finn helped me mix up some homemade Chic Fil A Sauce!

And Liv wanted to bake in her easy bake oven.  I told her that she was old enough to use the real oven, and so we googled what we could make with the ingredients we had, and off we went!

She did everything herself.....I helped with only the frosting!

Finn's favorite cookie was his hand print

And Liv's was a glass slipper!

Unfortunately, the frosting didn't go as well, and they ended up looking like crud, but tasted SUPER good!

This week, Winne got some attention.  She was cut and bathed, and she and I both despise it.

Our friend got a sweet new baby puppy named Betsy, and the kids just LOVED her!

And, our friends new restaurant opened up so we were able to enjoy that with them!!!  So yummy!
