First Ballet Recital

Our baby girl had her first ballet recital with Ballet with Miss Amie. She absolutely loves Ballet right now. She put her recital costume on every day. She loves dancing around. We are so proud of her for standing on stage without being scared.

Beach Birthday Girl

Three years after her fast and furious style birth, our little Angel is more smiley than ever. We will never forget the day she was brought into this world. She brings so much sunshine to our life with her daily smiles and compliments. From saying, "Mommy you so pretty" to "I wuv you daddy". Her other favorite line that she will yell after we come home from having a babysitter is"You came ba-ack."Unless she is really tired or out of her routine, she is happy all the time. Her loves are babies, mermaids, kitties, peacocks, and shoes. She will be found changing her clothes numerous times and day. She loves our neighbors and can be found yelling, Jennifer over the fence. Every once in while she will bust out singing, "Do you want to build a snowman from the movie Frozen."

Spring Break, Angie Cake

We kicked off Angela's 3rd birthday week with a low key party at the beach. We partied Little
Mermaid style with Ariel decor, beach buckets, and sand cake. She was in heaven at a beach house in Newport Beach. The weekend was complete with a boat tour of the harbor, lots of free play in the sand, bonfire made with car coal due to a new city ordinance, homemade pizza, babies/princess play, ferris wheel ride and walks on the boardwalk. 

Spring Break and all about the sand!

Spring Break

We opted for a stay-casion this year for Tyler's official Spring Break week. We got caught up on somethings around the house and had a great time at the local hotspots. We made a few trips to Kidspace and spent a lot of time riding bikes. 
The kids were due for some check-ups, so we went to the doctor and the dentist this week. We found a new pediatric dentist, which mommy is very happy about! He gave us great reports...NO Cavities! That is always a relief to hear! He uttered a word that mommy did not resonate with well, but we have a few years for it to sort itself out...Crossbite:( Both kids could have some issues with that and may require orthodontics in the future, but he said it was too soon to make any conclusions. Both kids checked out well at the pediatrician for their 3 and 5 year check ups. Tyler is average height and weight. Angela is below average height and above average weight.

Tyler got to visit Angela's class. They painted together. She was proud to have big brother learn about her world. 

New dentist office...they give the kids sun glass to protect their eyes and keep the light from being to bright and scary for them. The hygenist were great with both of them.

Grandparents at the best!!

A few weeks ago the Grandparents came for a visit. It was heavenly! Thanks you for coming! We had a blast. 
Grandpa Knight and I took Tyler had his first ski lesson in Wrightwood at Mountain High ski resort. There was not a lot of snow, but enough to introduce him to the slopes. He did well and wanted to keep going. Grandma and Grandpa took the kids to Chucky Cheese which was a highlight for them.
Grandma and Grandpa Olson took us to the Aquarium where we touched the sting rays and saw lots of sharks and scuba divers. We also visited the beach on the way to the airport and enjoyed a light lunch on the sand of El Porto Beach.

Tyler is finishing his first year of preschool at the end of May. He has made lots of new friends. We find out this week whether or not the schools we applied to have a space for him or not for Kindergarten. He enjoys illustrating books and building with legos right now. He and Angela frequently play pirates and ninja turtles. They also love to rein-act the movie Frozen.

Angela loves going to her mommy and me classes. She is a happy go lucky little brut. She is really into Hello Kitty, Frozen and being a princess. She also like playing in the mud and picking up rolly polleys. She totally potty trained! We are so proud of her.
