Reagan Rebeca

On April 24 our new little girl decided to grace us with her presence.  Reagan was born at 1:05, weighing 7 lbs 3 oz and was 19 in long.  We are so excited to have a baby in our house again.  Her brother and sister love her to pieces.

Collin is 7

This year Collin wanted a Lego party.  There are not any Lego party decorations, beside the star wars Lego which he didn't want, so we made everything from scratch.  It turned out to be a pretty fun adventure.  He told me everything he wanted and I tried to attempt it.  Everything turned out and everyone had a blast. 

I still can't believe that he is seven this year.  I feel as if my baby is growing way to fast, before I know he will be off to college.  He is such a great blessing to have in my life.  He teaches us so much.  He is a reminder of what is really important in life.  I love being his mom.  Collin, I love you!

I love how his cake turned out. This was my first time making and actually using fondant. It was so much fun.

I just drew faces onto the cups which really helped tie everything together.

 The Lego pops were probablly the hardest to do, but they were a big hit and turned out great.

While we waited for his friends to arrive they each picked a Lego surprise and put it together.

I found this really fun game online. You time each child for 30 seconds and see how many balloons they could pick up.  It was really funny to see the balloons scatter and the kids try and pick them all up.
Maddie got creative and used her mouth, probably not the safest thing but it did help her keep her balloons together.

 You can't see Collin in the sea of kids but he is there.
Happy Birthday Buddy!!!

Collin's tooth

I can't believe that I am already posting about a missing tooth.  I don't know why I though my kids were to little to loose teeth, but Collin did. He lost his very first tooth.  He was eating an apple one day and discovered that his tooth was loose, and after working on it a couple more days out it came (with a little help from Mom).  Just another reminder of how fast they grow.

Here it is, such a little thing

Collin's new smile :)

Collin really wanted to keep his tooth so he wrote the tooth fairy a note. In the morning he was excited to see that she left him the tooth, but then a minute later decided that I would like it better and gave it to me, silly boy.

Maddie turned 4!

MadaLynn had her birthday in October, but here it is four months later.  MadaLynn wanted a Tangled party and that it exactly what she got. She was also very excited because we had our cousins here from California.  We sure do miss them, and love every chance we get to spend time with them.  Anyway, here are some pictures from the party....

She really loved her cake :)

When they first arrived we had them decorate their lanterns

Then they made their crowns

...and what party is complete without a pinata!

But we needed brothers help to break it. 

Here she is in her tangled dress that she wanted, she was extra surprised to see pascal.
