Christmas is in Full Swing!

I know I haven't blogged in quite a while, but this was just too good not to get on here and share. We went to our first
Christmas party of the season and it probably will be the best by far! Our neighbors and good friends had a party tonight for a few families. The kids made reindeer shirts, painted, played with gingerbread playdough, and played freeze dance to Christmas music, but the highlight was when Santa walked in! He read Christmas stories to the kids, sang Santa Clause is Coming To Town, and spent time with each individual family. Madison was in awe!!! Hunter was a little unsure, but put on his brave (but I'm not sure I'm happy about it) face! It was a night I think the kids will always remember, and I know the parents wil

Summer Fun

We have had a great summer so far! Mike and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary (with the kids). We went out to Bone Fish Grill and the kids actually were awesome that night and we all had a great time. Mike and I will get away for a few days in August when we go down to visit Gammy and Papa! The kids and I went to Boone, NC to visit Grandma and Grandpa last week. We had a really great time visiting them and having picnics, riding bikes and swimming. Hunter does have a fat lip in some of the pictures in the mountains. He was racing his sister to the front door and fell flat on his face. He was a real trooper though. He didn't even cry long at all. I can't believe summer is half over.

Hunter's Swim Lessons

Hunter just finished two weeks of swimming lessons with Ms Mildred. He did a great job. Today he went down the slide and swam to me and then went off the diving board, (not willingly) and swam to the wall. He did a great job for only being 2 1/2!!! It makes me feel a little more confident being at the pool with both kids and knowing that they can swim. Madison is going for a second class in July with Ms Mildred to learn rotary breathing!!! I'm so proud of both of them!!!

YES!!! Madison Can Swim!!!

It has been a struggle the past 3 summers to get Madison over the fear of swimming. I searched and tried a few swim teachers but none were hard core enough to get the job done. I asked around and was told that if Miss Mildred couldn't get her to swim, no one can! So we gave Miss Mildred a call and I'm proud to announce that SHE DID IT!!! We are so proud of Madison and all the hard work she has put in this past week and a half!!!

Spring Dance Recital

Madison just had her spring dance recital. The theme was the movies and her class was dressed as Jasmine from Aladin. She did such a great job and Gammy and Papa came to see her dance too. We had a great weekend!
