It's been a few days since my last post. The reason--a week full of activity. I know, they ALL are, but this one seemed just a little bit more full than usual.
Sunday was Kaden's 3rd birthday. Doesn't hardly seem possible. We had our usual delicious lunch at my parents then had his cake/ice cream and gifts out there. His cake request this year was a tractor. I was getting a little concerned about how to conquer that one, when my mom found a tractor cake pan at Hobby Lobby. Then, I just had to bake and decorate. At about midnight on Saturday night while attempting to finish the decorating of the cake, before his birthday on Sunday, I decided that if you have ever paid, oh, $50.00 or so to have a cake decorated for you--it's not too much!!Sunday morning, in the midst of trying to get ready for church, Khara and Kelsey made this sign for Kaden. So, I had to stick a candle in his muffin to get his "birthday day" started off right! :-)

Ready to blow out those candles!!!
That morning before church I was trying to snap a picture of the kids.
Two of them are ready--Khara walked in and definitely "caught their eyes".
Now, we have three ready.
Kaden joins them to complete the picture. The more you add, the harder it is to get a good shot.
Sunday evening the church had a graduation party for Kelsey and another girl graduating from 8th grade. I know I didn't get that much $$$ for my kindergarten graduation. Kelsey was one happy little girl. :-)
Thursday was Khara's last day of school!! YEAH!!! (I think) We (they) have already had water gun fights, gotten muddy, changed clothes 3 times in one day....Summer Vacation is here!!! We are off and running!! :0)Khara's awards assembly at school. She made us proud!! Due to dying camera batteries, this is the only picture I was able to get. GGRRR.
* Esp. for my siblings--The back drop in the back of the picture was for a play--modern day version of The Three Little Pigs, that my mom's 5th grade class put on for the whole elementary. I took Kelsey, Kaden and Karson up to the school on Wednesday to watch the production. The gym was packed. I asked my mom if the kids were nervous--she said, "I AM!" ;-)
Khara's last day of school. She had just gotten off the bus and was greeted by three happy siblings and one happy mama!! :-)
