Sydney's first day of Kindergarten was today. She was sooooo excited!!! She was up and ready to go bright and early this morning. When we got to school there were about a million people there dropping off kids. It was nuts. We even had to wait in line to even get into her classroom. She posed for a couple of pictures, then found her seat. No nerves at all for my brave little social butterfly. She barely said bye when I left. I can't believe she is so big already!!!

Birthday part fun

Future nurses!!

The birthday princess!

The girls and I went to 2 really fun birthday parties in the last month. The first one was for Jake and Sam Tucker. It was a Pump It Up and now Sydney has decided that she wants her next birthday party there (I don't have very many pictures from there because my camera died!). We will see if mama can afford that when the time comes. The next party was for Miss Giada and it was at Imagination Ave and it was an adorable indoor "town". The girls had a blast at both places.

Preschool Graduate!

Mrs. Arriaga

Mrs. Ashby

Sydney graduated from preschool today!!!! I can't believe how fast she is growing up. Kindergarten really!?!?! It seems like just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital.


This is one of the faces I get when I tell Hayden no. The other one is of pure defiance. I will try to get that one next.

Sydney's hair

Sydney has decided that she wants her hair to be like Rapunzel. I told her that as much as she hates me combing it now that it probably would not be a good idea. So we compromised and she can have her hair to her waist, but if she is sitting on it it's too long! Here are a couple pictures of how long it's getting.

Easter 2011

Easter was pretty low key for us this year because once again illness ruined all my plans. We had fun anyway though. We colored easter eggs yesterday and of course the Easter bunny arrived this morning! Sydney got a Taylor Swift cd, who she loves, but she then told me that now she wants Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez. What!!!! Wait a minute your only 5. I am not ready for this. We loaded up her cd onto her mp3 player (a great find of mine on black friday a year ago only $8.99!) which she is now old enough for. She loved it! I think there is definatly more music in our future! Hayden really wasn't impressed with much, but she loved the chocolate bunny she got! Sorry the pictures are out of order, don't know what I did. P.S. sorry for lack of blog updates, my computer died! I have had a long string of electronics failure lately, I don't know what the deal is.

Student of the month

Mrs. DeCoste, the school principal

Mrs. Arriaga, her teacher

This is Maddie and Avie, our new neighbors across the street! Maddie was student of the month too.

Sydney was student of the month this month and I a sooooo proud of her! She was over the moon. They had an assembly where the kids were recognized in front of the whole school. Pretty cool. I had to work so I wasn't able to go, but Nana made it. She had been doing so well in school. They did a kindergarten assesment and she got a 100% on it!

Stuffington Bear Factory

We went to Stuffington Bear Factory on a fieldtrip with Sydney's preschool class. What an adventure with all of those little kids. We rode on a bus, which when your 5 is pretty cool. Busses are a lot smaller than I remember. She has a blast making her bear. We had a little teddy bear education, a tour of the factory and lunch! Afterword Sydney and I had a pedicure. It was a great day with my girl!
