Soccer Days

The spring soccer season is coming to an end and it has been an interesting one. Multiple games were rescheduled because of rain and most of the others were played in very chilly/windy weather. 

We've had to dig out gloves and hats for some games. The shorts I bought for practices and games were worn over pants. We've had to layer clothes under the jerseys. It's just been a crazy soccer season. It's felt more like October than May.

But it's been fun nevertheless. 

Colson scored his first goals and I think Hannah has really started to figure out how to play the game. She still needs work on field positions, but she is getting in there and taking the ball and has even had a few breakaways. I am very proud of both of them.

Doctor Well Visits--Hannah and Colson

Hannah and Colson had their well visits last week.

Here are their stats:

Hannah:
Hannah is 50 inches tall and 55.8 pounds and is around the 60% for height and weight. So she is a bit taller than average--which I figured. She has always been slightly taller than average.

She is still a size 7 with some 8s but she is quickly outgrowing her 7s.

Colson:
Colson is 41 inches tall which is about the 10% and 36.8 pounds which is the 17% so he is staying on the small track. That's no shocker to anyone. I swear, this kid will never be able to be moved to a booster car seat. :oP

He is wearing mostly 4t although I did buy him some 5t tshirts for summer. For shorts though he is still in mostly 3ts.

All is well. Colson got his kindergarten shots so that was a bummer but now they are done and over with.

Easter 2016

Man, I completely ignored March on my blog. That's a bummer. But I wanted to make sure I did a post about Easter...so here it is:

The week before Easter was Hannah and Colsons spring break so we made it a point to color eggs.
They did really well this year so that was nice. This mama didn't have to stress out too much! :oP

Then it was Easter.
We stopped at my parents on Saturday.




Then we did baskets at our house Easter morning.

Then we headed to Nick's parents for more Easter fun! We had breakfast and they did an egg hunt.



We ended the day going out to my grandparents house for an early dinner and the kids did another egg hunt.

The holidays are always pretty busy for use but the kids don't seem to mind. :oP

We had a great Easter--spending it with family. Plus we lucked out with a beautiful day because our weather has been crazy lately-- to say the least!!

Sledding, Sixties, and a Blizzard

Presidents Day weekend we finally got a couple inches of snow so I took the kids over to grandma and papa's that Monday to go sledding because they we off of school.

Of course, they loved every minute!!






Then, not even a week later we had a crazy 60 degree day so we took the kids to the park.




Now, I'm currently at home during a blizzard. It's been snowing all day.  School was canceled at 5:30 this morning before it even started snowing.


So, Monday the 15th was sledding, then Sayurday the 20th was playing at the park with no coats, and now today-Wednesday the 24th we have a blizzard.

But it looks like the kids will get in one more sledding day tomorrow! Plus it's a crazy wet snow so maybe we can make a snowman. :o)

Thanks crazy Indiana weather!

Party Prep

Colson's birthday party is tomorrow and I have been crafting away making some decor.

He wanted a Mixel party. 

If you don't know what Mixels are--they are Lego creatures that you can make and mix up to create new creatures.

So for his party I made a few large Mixels out of poster board. 

Here's one of them:

They are not quite finished yet...nothing like cutting it close...but I am really happy with them.

Colson loves them so that's all that matters.

I wanted to do some other Lego things but unfortunately we packed all of our Legos away in the storage unit and we can't find them. :o( Makes me sad but he'll still have a great party. Maybe I'll make the front door look like a giant Lego...

For food we're doing a pasta bar again. I did one for his first birthday and it wa as huge hit so I figured we'd do it again. I'm not going to go as crazy with it this time but it will still be great! I mean, it's pasta, how could you go wrong?? :oP
