The Graduate!

Sarae graduated from Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten March 15th. She and her classmates sang wonderful songs to the parents and then received their diplomas. Lots of laughter and some tears from some of the parents. Sarae's favorite part was running on the stage after the ceremony was over.

Happy 5th Birthday Sarae!

Sarae said this was the best birthday party yet. Her theme was mermaids and we had it at Dr. Phillips Community Park with 70 or so of our friends. We had a windy, but sunny day and had tons of fun. Pastor Jeff and Adam were great chefs and grilled all of the food. I made two cupcake cakes. There were 41 cream-filled cupcakes making up each of those cakes. RJ, the balloon lady, came and led lots of games; the egg and spoon race, hool-a-hoop contest, bean bag toss, floppy frisbee race, the limbo and toss in the ring. She made flying mice and balloon hats for all of the kids and was the hit of the party.

Happy Gotcha Day!

Hard to believe it's been 4 years since Sarae and I became a family! We celebrated this year, the same way we did last, by going to Magic Kingdom at Disney. We had a beautiful day and had a fantastic time. Sarae got to see her favorite Princess, Ariel along with all of the others. We were excited to meet Rapunzel and Flynn Rider for the first time. Tangled was the first movie Sarae actually went to a movie theater to see!
