Letters to Santa


Collin's was written exactly as Collin said it. Lydia was going crazy. "That's not how you do it!"
 I thought he did a pretty good job personally.



It's Christmas time!

Videos a plenty

Going through my videos and found a few I thought I'd upload from my camera. This first is my favorite. It's why I wake up with a smile most mornings.












"Mom, can you sing like a little girl? Sure I can!" (Super creepy.)



This performance occered after 5 minutes of practice. None of the parents had ever heard this song before.





How to keep bored kids busy.

Pirate Safety Day


Oh my word. "Pirate Safety Day" at the kids swim lessons was awesome. It was like a hilarious watershow complete with music and good looking actors. 

The kids seemed to have a good time too.


Hoisting Collin in.


Emergency doughnut.
Can you find Lydia and Collin? They're together.


"Mom? Why are you taking a photo."
Oh, no reason.
(Kristi, this photo is for you. SOOOO your type!)


Come on Collin! Walk the plank!


She caught him just before his head went under. 
Total pros.


Go Liddy!

Where's Collin?


There he is!

Dairy Day Parade


Meridian Dairy Days Parade! We got there nice and early and found a shady spot. Got slurpees and powdered doughnuts. Our kids are s.p.o.i.l.e.d.





We were joined by our friends the Steens.


Collin and Matthew are good friends.




Someday they will be too cool for school, but for now they just have fun.


Baby's first parade. It wasn't the most impressive one I've seen. 
Okay, it was the least impressive one I've ever seen.
But it was still super fun.



And this "Up" float was pretty cute. 

I love parades.

Kindergarten Graduation


Guess who graduated from Kindergarten! Our Liddy Bitty. 

Such a big girl already. 
Well, a really big girl, she is the tallest in her class.
She is the one on the very left, top row.


Lydia got the only attendance award having only missed one day of school.
And that day was cause Mommy was sick, not her.


Proud daddy.


Proud mommy.


Lots of proud parents. :)


Proud Miss Clements.

Happy Birthday Collin!


Oh dear. Collin's party started out with a tad of drama.

When I called to make reservations at a "fun zone" type place for Collin's birthday, they told me it would be so slow on a Tuesday night, I didn't need to make an official reservation. "Just come on in!" they told me.

We showed up at 5:15 and were informed they were closing early at 6.
I about had a heart-attack.

Thank heavens for Chuck E Cheese down the street. It saved us.

I was a little stressed, so all you get is camera photos. :)


Though I did make some awesome cupcakes.


They were so so yummy.



And who doesn't like cheap-o pizza?


Well, Collin doesn't with his dairy allergy. 

Yay for Mcdonalds next door!

This was a classy party.



With classy entertainment.


We had a very happy 3 year old.


Well, 4 very happy 3 year olds.



And that was the whole idea.








I even mellowed out enough to instagram his big moment.


It was a terrific success. :)
