end of school year 2016

Sweet Mother's Day tea with Collins

Sweet Mother's Day tea with Camp...this will probably be the last school Mother's Day event with Camp...wahhhh!! I think it stops in first grade. I savored every moment of this sweet morning.

This smile on Camp's face about did me in. He was so proud standing up there. And I was a proud Mama!!

End of year program.

Splash Party!

First and last day of 3 year old preschool. Excuse the water on his shirt!!

This was a special school year...Collins was on the playground with me every single morning and I loved watching him play. He played with his friends, but I was always able to get some sweet snuggles from him. I'm really going to miss that. I can't believe Collins has only one more year at Faith. :( I'm going to savor every moment with him at school with me next year!!

On the Tuesday before school got out, Camp's school held an AR (Accelerated Reader) rally for all of the students that met their AR goal for the school year. Camp earned THE MOST AR points out of ALL of the first grade!!! I got the text and pictures from his teacher while Collins and I were at Target and I immediately started crying right there in the middle of the store!!! I have never been so proud!! 

Volunteering at Camp's end of the year party!!

First and last day of school for Camper!!
He has grown so much!! I am SOOO proud of this sweet, smart, handsome boy!!


Disney 2016

The boys and I met Trip at Disney the last weekend of January. We had the best time and I'm so thankful for that time together. There's truly nothing like Disney. It is my favorite place of all!!
The first night was rainy, but we didn't let that stop our trip around the world at Epcot. 

I spent this trip actually enjoying myself instead of worrying too much about taking lots of pictures. I got a few good pics...here they are in no particular order. We spent our time at Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios. We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge and it was wonderful. We loved the proximity to Magic Kingdom and the pool was awesome. 

Waiting for Indiana Jones at Hollywood Studios. We all loved the show! Trip and I saw it when we were kids and it was fun watching it again!!

Macaron ice cream sandwich from France.

Toy Story Mania

In front of Little Mermaid. The third year in a row that they've worn these same shirts. I think Collins's will have to be retired after this year. :( 

We left already excited for our trip next year! 

collins is 4!!

And just like that, my BABY is four years old. I can't even believe it!! He requested a Star Wars themed birthday again this year. I ordered fondant toppers for cupcakes for his school birthday snack. I thought they turned out pretty darn cute!!

I was so happy to find the Star Wars Cheez Its for his birthday snack too!! We got Star Wars plates, napkins, and even bought each child in his class a Star Wars cup for them to take home!

I got to go Collins's classroom for his birthday snack. He was so proud of himself and his adorable birthday crown!

Happy boy!!

At last minute Collins chose the C3PO cupcake!! 

Make a wish, sweet boy!!!!

We decided to make a last minute trip to the beach for Collins's birthday weekend. 

Last night as a three year old!

He woke up and opened all of his birthday presents!

His favorite present of all...sausage for breakfast made especially by Bebe!

Beautiful day on the beach!

Collins had his first friend birthday party this year. We took two friends to Chuck E. Cheese after school.

They all had a blast and it was a great time to go!! We were about the only people there!!

Collins had his four year old well check up and was such a brave boy!! He got three shots and didn't shed a tear. I couldn't even believe it. I was so PROUD of him!!! He weighed 44 lbs. and was 43" tall. 

We had to go get ice cream afterwards to celebrate. His spiderman sticker on his hand just kills me. Sweetest boy!!
