Ranger Game

I got some free Rangers tickets from my work so we decided to go out late on a school night and enjoy the nice weather, watch some baseball and take advantage of $1 hot dogs.  We made it to the 5th inning.

Rainbow Cake Ball Delivery

Emma watched a Kids You Tube video about making rainbow cake balls and she has been on me to let her make a batch.  It was a rainy Sunday and we were all tired and relaxing in our pajamas so I decided to let her have a go at the cake balls. We had a lot of fun making them and while we were working on them Emma decided that she wanted to deliver them to some of her closest friends (and to Pa). So, I was forced to put a bra on and provide her the transportation to deliver her goodies.  She decided to bring her camera along and take some selfies of her friends when she gave them the cake balls.  So funny!  Our delivery took us about an hour and a half to make the rounds.  It was worth it! Love my goofy, thoughtful girl!  And, her selfies she took are my favorite part. :-)
Preparing the rainbow cake.
SO pretty!
Mashing it up!
Emma added the sprinkles.
The inside looked more blue than rainbow,
I think we mashed a little too hard.
Ready for delivery!

At her first house- the Porras'
I still had my pajamas on (plus a bra) so I stayed in the car.

Pantegofest 2016

I apparently was feeling like Super Mom on Saturday and after getting my crew to a 9:00 football game (B shift today, but Grandpa helped me), taking big girls to a play date, getting Polly her two naps and taking Ryan to a cheer clinic at Arlington High I still decided to take the girls to Pantegofest! Talk about a non-stop jam packed day! We met the Jackson family and the girls had a blast riding rides with Finn and Fletcher.  Pollyanna had fun pushing her stroller all around (it looked like a run away stroller and scared quite a few people!). I enjoyed hanging with Beth and having a few cold beers while listening to the bands.  We ran into a ton of our friends and it turned out to be a lot of fun. We made it home in one piece (and even had friends come back to the house!) and we all slept hard Saturday night!

More Cheer!

They got their pom-poms in!  So cute!

Dinner with friends

We met the Porras' for  dinner and got some cute pictures of our SIX kids! We are outnumbered for sure! Here are a few (Patrick was with us but I didn't get a picture):
Bigs on the rail.

Layering or Nude

Polly likes to bring out multiple outfits from her dresser and she insists that you help her put them on.  She does not want to take off what she is wearing though, she wants to put clothes on top of clothes! It is hilarious! And, she always wants shoes on. She loves to wear shoes.

Her other new trick is removing her diaper.  We can no longer put her down for a nap in just a diaper unless we want to walk in to find a naked baby and a soaked crib.  She has started taking her diaper off around the house too!  Silly girl!

Ryan's first game to cheer!

She was a little nervous before the game but also very excited!  She looked so cute!
We had a little drama when they wanted her to take her earrings out, but
we put band aids over her ears and she was all smiles again.
Walking up- getting focused!
My precious girl!
They did great.

Emma is Ryan's biggest fan.
She wore her Highlander gear and cheered for the cheerleaders!

Polly, Grandpa  and I loved watching the flag football game.
I was so into it you would have thought I had a son playing!
I am excited to watch Ryan cheer and the boys play all season.

Beauty and the Beast at Artisan

The big girls and I went to see another wonderful production at the Artisan with a few friends.  Beauty and the Beast was fantastic!  I love this theater so much and every show we have been to has been excellent.  Ryan was too shy for pictures with the cast, but Emma wasn't.
Emma loved the feather duster and the candlestick!
And Belle is our favorite princess!

FroYo with Pa

Polly loves her Pa!  She also loves sharing after school frozen yogurt with him!

Queen for a day!

Emma had her turn as Queen for a day in Kindergarten.  She was very excited to bring her favorite stuffed animal, favorite book and a picture of her family along with a treat for her class. She loved wearing the crown all day and I got to come have lunch with the queen.
