Girls Ballet Performance

Lily and Suzy took their first ballet class this fall.  It took a lot of courage for them to do their first performance, and we were so proud of them.

We didn't realize that the performance would be an hour and a half long!  Kudos to Jon's parents and the Hansen's for coming to watch.

Winter Fun

My parents came over for dinner the other night and it was so much fun.

Thanksgiving 2016

This year we were lucky enough to go to two Thanksgiving Dinners (one with the Terrys, one with the Tylers), and not have to cook any of it.  Win!  It was so much fun.

Lily's 6 Year Old Birthday Bash

I can't believe Lily is 6!  Growing up so fast.  We had a ridiculously fun birthday.  It started off with her opening her presents from Jon and me at 6:45 am.  She loved the music box (and Suzy was sure to let me know that she wants one for her birthday.  What she doesn't know is that there is already an identical music box wrapped up for her birthday...don't tell her).  

Then we went to a brunch at Grandma Tyler's house.  Chocolate chip pancakes...yum!  Lily got a beautiful illustrated copy of "The Secret Garden," from my Mom.  Lily listens to that book on tape while she falls asleep and it was so fun to see her flip through the book and name the pictures and events.

After kindergarten, we got ready for her party.  Jonas and Gwen came for dinner and then we made necklaces (Gwen gets the prize for longest to stay at the table and string beads).  We danced to Frozen songs and had a pinata!  To top it all off, Nanee and Papa (Jon's parents) delivered Lily and Suzy's birthday gifts they picked out together at the store last week.  They are Elsa dresses that come with lights and music...we couldn't help but turn off the lights to try it out.  The girls were pretty much in heaven.

Thanks everyone and Happy Birthday Lily.  We're so lucky to have you as part of our family and so glad you're here and healthy and learning and growing.  Love you!  - Mom
