Rylee and Jenna were in the Fiddler on the Roof production at their elementary school this week. They have been practicing for a couple months and it turned out great! It was fun to watch them, along with other kids we know put on such a great performance. Way to go girls!!!

Rylee was a villager and in a few different scenes.
Here she is saying her line!

My little actresses!

My Scouts

At Pac Meeting the other night Cole & Noah earned there Bears along with arrows of lights, beads, etc. They completed 23 of 24 requirements for their Bears (you only have to complete 12). I cannot take any of the credit for this, they have incredible leaders! The boys sometimes complain about Wednesdays because they say they don't want to go to scouts, but then they get home and can't seem to stop talking about what they did at scouts. I am glad they are learning a lot and enjoying themselves! What a great program.

Party Time

Cole & Noah had there birthday party all planned out for weeks, I finally caught up with them and got it done. They each picked 2 friends to walk home from school with them. Then we went to Kangaroo Zoo (a local bounce house) to play, then back to our house for pizza and cake & ice cream and presents. They all seemed to have a blast! They ran and bounced and played for 2 hours straight. You should have seen how sweaty they all were. Of course they all got the boys Legos so they were in heaven. I think overall it was a success! Happy Birthday Cole & Noah!

10 Years Old...

I cannot believe that my boys turned 10 today. I remember how tiny they seemed when we brought them home from the hospital. The first few months of there life is a blur for me. I think all I did was feed them, change them, rock them, feed them, change them, and I would not trade it for anything.

Here they are just a few days old.

Here they are just a few days ago. We went to Spaghetti Factory with all of the family (both mine & Mike's) and had a blast.

Here they are shopping for Legos. They each got $100 worth of gift cards for Target and they have been bugging us since Saturday to go shopping.

Here they are with their stash of Legos. I think I know where they will be for at least the next few days.

is the only way to describe my girls and their "relationship" with The Jonas Brother! Friday night I took Ry, Jenna, and 3 neices (Eliza, Alicia, & Shannon) to see the Jonas Bros 3-D Concert Movie. It was an 1 hour and 16 minutes of Jo Bros singing and little girls screaming, it was fun!

Jenna was in heaven, hanging with the big girls,
watching the Jo Bros and eating popcorn...

Shannon, Ry, & Eliza anxiously waiting for the movie to begin...
they were soooooo excited & spazzy!
