Daniel's 6th Birthday

When I asked Daniel what he wanted to do on his birthday, he said, "Let's go to Toys R Us!"  So, we did.  He picked out a train and a movie and an Iron Man action figure. 
The big event of the day, though, was his Build A Bear party!  He wanted to invite his best friend, Jonah, and his "girlfriend" Emma.  We had to have a minimum of six kids for the party, so Jonathan and Andrew and Emily made up the rest.  It was a really great party.  The girl assigned to us had them play some fun games, and then they all made their bears.  Daniel chose Spongebob, and it even plays the Spongebob theme song.

After the Build A Bear party, we went to Daniel's choice for
dinner--Burger King!

He really wanted bobbleheads for his birthday.  We're not sure why, but he was pretty excited when he got them.

He also really wanted the Lego Batman movie.

It was a wonderful birthday!  We love you, Daniel!!!!

May Madness 2013

May is always recital/field trip/school program madness here.  We love it, though!

Daniel's skating field trip
He did really well!  He was able to skate by himself!

This is Jonathan's typical after-school activity--searching through his siblings' lunch boxes to claim leftovers.  "Look, Mom, Daniel didn't eat his juice or fruit snacks!"

Papa was here for the weekend, so he got to see Emily's recital and school program.  Her 4th grade class did a Parent Appreciation program and it was so cute!
Emily danced beautifully in her ballet recital!

Great job, sweetie!

Friday was Daniel's Kindergarten "Graduation" program.  He did a great job singing the songs, and afterward we got to visit his classroom.  Jonathan came up and gave him a big bear hug.

That night we had our typical Friday movie night.  I told Daniel to go use the bathroom and go get in bed.  He didn't make it.

This week is their last week of school, and then it's time for some summer fun!!!
