Sean's 7th Bday

Whoa, where did the time go? How is Sean 7?!? We are so proud of the nice, well mannered, helpful guy that he is. He does well in school and gets compliments all the time about his behavior. He opened a few presents before school and a few after. He needs that fishing pole for our upcoming camping trip! Before he got to open all those presents and eat cupcakes he had a baseball game first. What a busy day!

Auntie and Kevin's Wedding Shower

We all traveled down to NC to spend the weekend at Nama and Poppy's house. We had a special reason this time-Auntie and Kevin's Wedding Shower which I was co-hosting with the other bridesmaids. It turned out perfect! Everything cmae together so nicely and everyone had a great time. Grama and Grampa Bliss made the trip down from NY and it was great to see them as well. The kids love getting to spend time with G.G. and Grandpoppy (the names they have given them) and I believe Jenn and Kevin had a wonderful time!

Little League Baseball

Sean decided to give baseball a try this season in addition to boyscouts, and a swim clinic on Sundays, this kept us pretty busy for the spring! He seemed to really enjoy learning how to play baseball. We are proud of him for trying something new.

The Living room update

 When we bought our new house, we knew we'd have lots of projects to do! We started by doing some painting. Or I should say, Dan did some painting. He painted and updated the fireplace and mantel and he painted the dark wood trim white (to match the rest of the house). We are pretty happy with how it turned out. One room down....lots more to go!

Easter part 2

 While my family was here for the weekend, we celerbated Easter again. My mom likes to see her grown kids run around like kids and collect Easter Eggs. The easiest way to get us to do that?? Put money in the eggs!

We were able to break in the new back yard and then sit down and count up how much money to found! (We like the candy as well)

Yes, Easter Dress and tennis shoes. . . .

We all have a special egg that we trade in for our special Easter gift. (Only Nama!)

Looking for the cash!

First family dinner!

We moved in before disney and then went to disney for 10 days and then 1 day to unpack it all beofre going back to school. We got as much done as we could but thankfully Nama, Poppy and Auntie came up for the following weekend to help finish. We had a nice Taco Bar dinner on Saturday night to break in the new kitchen. We love our new huge island and the eat in kitchen has room for everyone! This is the first of many big family dinners at this house!

Spring Carnival and new bangs. . .

We were all excited to attend Sean's school spring carnival afterschool. I was not excited when I found out that Carter had given herself new bangs at school that day. Luckily, we were still able to have fun, but man was I mad at her! Her hair is so pretty and she took huge chunks out of the front part. Good thing her hair grows fast!

Disney Trip-Spring Break 2015

Whoa. What a trip! Our Disney trip exceeded all expectations we had! I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea how much fun it could really be. I won't bore you with all the details because I could write about it for pages, but I will choose a few of my favorite pics to share from the week. I did take about 1200 photos so narrowing it down is tough!

We stayed on Disney property at Port Orleans Riverside. We checked in on Saturday and left on Saturday. We visited, in this order, Epcott, Universal Studios, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and then Magic Kingdom again. I personally liked Epcott and Hollywood studios the best for the rides, Magic Kingdom was super cool for the expereinces and meeting the princesses and characters. Oh and eating at the Beast/Belle's Castle...that was pretty awesome!

Ok, I said I wouldn't go on and on, so I won't. If anyone wants to see my 70 page photo book--just let me know! :o)
