MY Birthday:))

MY birthday was at the beginning of March.  This year it fell on the Friday before Spring Break --- the day could not have been any better!!!
My coworker Dalene made this beautiful spread for me and our class to enjoy for the day!


I took some cute pics with my AweSomE students --- you'll only get to see me though:))

My SPED team -- Mrs. Bosko and Mrs. Ledig :))
They were sooo sweet to bring me treats too!

My partners in crime in our room -- Dalene and Carol!  These gals rock and we have MAKE the most FUN days!  They even got me a massage during my plan time:)))

Then....on the next Sat night, we all went down to our besties house for a game night ---- woo hoo!!!
Ashley made me a cake...see my candles, yep, I'm 32!

{boys were in pjs, because they were headed off to bed with the Tremaine boys:))}

Precious littles eyeing the yummy cake!
I love these boys too --- even though I am ashamed to say they beat us in Wahoo --- DO NOT TELL THEM I SAID THAT!

Seriously.....this is the best game ever!!!!  I am a 3rd generation Wahoo player and it is soooo much FUN!  And I still laugh at thoughts back to our game night.  Ash and Jo are sooo much FUN:))
{we all get just a little competitive...we may or may not have lost --- and had to take a yucky shot!!  crazy boys!} was an AWESOME bday!!!  I got lots of cards in the mail and got to spend some Ashlee $$ and even got a lot of ME time to do it!! 
My friends and family are the BEST!!

Keegan's 4th Birthday PIRATE party!

Keegan had his 4th Birthday Party back in February.  He chose to have it at a FUN {indoor} treehouse this year and we had So Much Fun!  Jake and the Neverland Pirates was the theme he chose for #4!

Even though the party was not at the house, I made just few little decorations!  

Our PIRATE family of 4:))
Crazy pictures are soooooo much easier than smiling ones!

Here is the Birthday Boy at 4 vs. 3.  He is growing SOOO fast!!

These pic are from the party room.  We got to play in the treehouse for about an hour and then head to our room for cake and presents!

The 'Pirate' theme was a lot of fun!  There is not a close up but I LOVED the little sails on the cupcakes!

We had 'Pirate's GOLD' and 'Pirate Cannonballs' and 'Pirate Swords'

There was also 'Pirate Punch' to drink!

I did not get a pic of the CUTE goodie bags at the party, so here is a close-up of the one while I was making it! SOOO easy, but I LOVED them!!!

They all had tatoo's, color sheets, gold coin chocolates, and...
super yummy cookies inside.  My AWESOME coworker, Dalene, made these for K's party.  She worked so hard and matched them to his shirt!  She also made him the cutest little pirate chest that he LOVES to play with:))  Love you girl!!

My 4 year old Birthday Boy!!

K's loves Christie and invited her to join in on the coloring fun:))

Happy Birthday Keegan!!!!

Best Buds of ours - Joey and Ashley:))  BIG LOVE!

LOVE this boy sooooo much!

We had such a FUN afternoon and I hope Keegan will always remember how much he is LOVED!!!

GranJan and the Bday boy!!  {GranJan got K his ADORABLE Jake shirt...and his so called Green Lantern soccer ball...ha}  Thanks GranJan!!!

Sadly I know 5 years old will be here before I know it!

Spring Break 2013

We LOVE Spring Break around here:)  We had an awesome week of just hanging out together, no big trips - just some quality time:))  Krys had to work his normal schedule, so the boys and I just had little outings.
Here we are visiting our FAVORITE ice cream/yogurt place EVER.  
{I went here 2 more times later in the week:)  SO GOOD!!!}

Dirty faces at the end of the day --- a FUN DAY!!

LOTS of outside play in the SUNSHINE.  
Do you know how much we LOVE the SUN?!?!

One afternoon we visited the ducks at the duck park:)

Keegan vs. the Goose

Another park play date with some of our school friends:)))

On Wednesday afternoon, Mikey came to get them for a couple of days.  They were sooo excited to go.  These boys LOVE Mikey!!!  K barely gave me a hug, but J was kind of sad to go.  He is soooooo like me:)  I assured him that I WOULD miss him tons and to have a Wonderful time!!!  {they both did!}

{I thought this was sooo cute -- I found this in his room while I was cleaning the next day:)}

And here are some pictures that Mikey sent me from the 2 days.
See this 1st one....J is holding a gun!   A BB gun, but doesn't he look PROUD!?!?

The boys get to do some real HANDYMAN things while at Mikeys!!!
They brought me home 2 projects that they had built:))  I LOVE things like that sooooo much!!!

Mikey brought them home today and we had a nice hotdog BBQ with Bubba, Christie, Ken, and Nora.  We played outside the whole day and had a great time.  We're all tired and sunburned tonight --- a true sign that summer is on the WAY!!!

ONE more day of our break:)  
Planning on BBQ hamburgers tomorrow with friends and enjoying it! 
I just LOVE carefree days.
Back to school on Monday:(((
