Elena is 4!!

My baby turned 4!!! It can't be! I'm going to hate this every year. I don't want her to get older. I love that she wants to snuggle in the morning and climb into bed with me and says "I want you Mommy!"
However I can't stop it and I'm glad she had a good day! We took her to Spring Creek for lunch since she loves everything there and she wanted to wear a crown all day. 

 That night for dinner we went to BJ's and she got a little birthday pazookie. Yum!

 When we got home she got to open a package from Grandma Connie.

 I love the excitement on her sweet little face as she opens each present

 We got her new cupcake earrings that she got to open on her birthday. The rest of her presents we saved for her friend and family birthday party with Patrick.

Kindergarten take 2!

So after we got back from Sara and Bryans wedding, Patrick and Elena started school. Patrick was starting Kindergarten. Again. And Elena was starting at a new preschool.
Here he is!! Big Kindergartener, take 2!

 He was pretty excited the first day because his friend Carter was assigned the same table that he was.

 We went home and got Elena all ready and prettified for Preschool. She loves school!!!

 Here she is after school, all tired out as we pick up Patrick from school.

 The next day she didn't have school and she and I got to be home together until 3 when Patrick got home. She wasn't happy about it till I let her go outside to play with chalk, then she was a happy girl.

Prayers for our friends

We have some friends that live in Durango Colorado that are dealing with some trying things. Their sweet baby boy was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy and could sorely use some prayers. Here is their blog with info Click Here. Please add them to your prayers as they could certainly use it.
