Tooth Fairy here you go

For a week now Lexi has had a lose tooth and finally on Saturday night Lexi's tooth fell out. She was very excited to put it under her pillow and wait for the Tooth Fairy!! The next morning she came in running into our room yelling, "The Tooth Fairy came!!! The Tooth Fairy came!!" Our baby is growing up so fast!!

Growing up together

Gavin and Alexis have been getting along very well together for the most part. Here's a picture of them sharing Gavin's chair at showtime. I just had to capture the moment of them loving each other!!

Meet Cupcake

Last month or so we have been looking for a kitten for the family. Last week we came across this adorable white Ragdoll kitten on Craig's list. We simply couldn't resist and added this cutie pie to our family. As we were looking for cats Alexis had already named our future cat, Cupcake. So it was only appropriate to have Lexi name her cupcake. Her is our little Cupcake....

Lexi's Horseback Riding Lessons

This year for Lexi's gift we wanted to surprise her with horseback riding lessons, which she has been asking us to do for sometime now. When we arrived she was so excited and couldn't believe she was going to ride a horse. Alexis did so well and listen to the instructor, she made us so proud. We thought it would be a good idea to have Chris do it with her, but once she got on the horse she didn't need any of our help. She did awesome and cannot wait to do it again! Gavin also did just as good trying to entertain himself for a whole hour while Daddy and Lexi rode their horses. Here are a few pictures from our day!!

Class of 2024

Today the future class of 2024 graduated preschool and will be entering kindergarten in the Fall of 2011. It rained today so we had to have this grand event at the club house at the Woodcreek Gold Course. All the kids were dressed adorable in their caps and gowns and they each walked across the stage to accept their diploma. It was very special to see all the things that the class has been working very hard toward. We cannot believe our first born will be going to kindergarten in the fall. We are so proud of Alexis!

Gifts for the teachers

I found this really neat idea on the Internet to make the teachers for all their hard work. The kids and I painted the pots and then I finished up painting the final coat with chalkboard paint. Then we all planted these pretty flowers in to each pot. What a really creative and fun project we did!!
