We started soccer this week. Kylie was so excited, practice was at 6 pm... by noon, she was dressed cleats and shin guards and all ready and waiting.
Matthew's the coach :) Kylie even calls him "coach" at practice. Matthew's got major athletic skills... give him a sport, ANY sport (not even basketball, which he is top notch) and he can be one of the best. Although these are just 5 yr olds, so I doubt they would have known the difference between him and someone like say ME for example :)Gotta love them, they're trimmed in pink!

My little sweetness...

Luck of the draw gave us the color "Carolina Blue" -Matthew's favorite color. Kylie had the best time- she could run around forever! And she's got 6 of her best friends on the team with her. (James, Riley, Mason, Savannah, Demarie, and Jaxson) I can't wait for games- starting April 18th!!!

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday, Kylie and Kadyn had dr appts. Thankfully, Kylie did not need any shots. I told her she wouldn't, but I completely didn't know... I just didn't want to deal with the drama beforehand. (fyi- Kylie's in the 97% for height, we all knew that. The dr said he estimates that she'll be about 5'11" and Kadyn might be 5'9", Kacey then being the shortest... although all of them still towering over me. I predict Kylie being my height by middle school... Kadyn's in the 75% for height and 30% for weight (?) Dr told me to feed her more... umm, hello... did you see her cheeks -top and bottom. Anyway, I'm feeding her more)...

POINT: Afterwards, we went to Burger King for a fun little time. It was packed, we couldn't get our normal seats, sooo many kids. I was up ordering, my mom was situating Kadyn and feeding her. And she told Kylie to watch her sister with all the kids there so Kacey didn't get lost in the mix or trampled by the bigger kids. As I was walking closer to the Playland with all our food, I see Kacey by the door and Kylie politely stopping/yelling-not loudly but being forceful to another mother who was about to slam Kacey's fingers in the corner of the door. And I was really proud of her. First off, for listening and keeping Kacey close by and keeping a watchful eye out... and second for assessing the situation and knowing she had only seconds to stop this lady who wasn't paying attention to the children around her- I really think that took courage, this lady was a stanger. And third (mind you this is all a matter of seconds) Kylie knew she wasn't allowed to yank Kacey back, because we always worry about Kacey's arms and her breaking it again... so Kylie knew she wasn't allowed to grab her. Kylie's such a good big sister!

Explaination in next post as to why Kacey's not in here :)

Tea Cup Party

We celebrated Kylie's birthday (again) with a little party with all her 5 year old girlfriends... we had a tea cup party! Of course we started all the fun and festivities with a Tea Party! (well, it was Sprite)Then we played Tea Cup Bingo...Poor Little Kacey missed a majority of it, because she was upstairs passed out on our rocking chair. We think she's got food poisoning, not pointing any fingers- Costco hot dog- but she was up from 1-5 the night before. So was I, not fun.Now, we colored our spouts for....Pin the Spout on the Tea Pot. I'm pretty proud of my Tea Pot drawing-- originally that was a delegated responsibility to Matthew -you should have seen his!!! I should put that on the blog! HA!Matthew couldn't resist getting some of cute little man, Cole.Then we opened presents. She got such cute stuff!We sang and ate cupcakes.I had another game- musical tea cups- but the girls were ready to play outside... so they played outside!

All in all, super fun time had by all... I think I'm going to keep all my stuff so I can do it again for Kacey's birthday. The girls had a blast. And huge thank you Missy for helping me throughout! Somehow I always rely on her to help me clean up... and she always does!


We called it an early evening with:

(HUGE Thank you to Rochelle and Steve who had it at my door by 8:15 am, I only wanted the Target one, 3 disc special!!!!)

*I had to miss a twilight party :( because of the minimal sleep I had the night before. But I couldn't go to bed until Matthew and I watched it once, we'll probably hit the bonus disc tonight!!!
