Daddy Daughter Dance

McKenna had her first Daddy Daughter date night with her activity group. They had a masquerade ball and dinner. McKenna made the masks and I thought they looked so cute. They had a great night and McKenna was so excited to get to Waltz with her dad!

Fort Night

A few weeks ago, I decided that we needed to build a fort. I was feeling like quite the boring mom because we had never built a fort before. I remember as a little kid we built them all the time and even nailed the blankets into the wall to make them sturdy! How I survived that is still a mystery. The kids loved it and we ended up keeping it up all weekend. They watched movies in it and ate popcorn. Then lloyd told them stories to fall asleep to. SO MUCH FUN!

McKenna nestled down in her private little cove.

They pulled out their flashlights so they wouldn't be scared.

6 and counting!

Matt had his 6th birthday on Feb. 4. We had a family party on his birthday and then he had a friend party 2 days later. What party would be complete without: pin the tail on the donkey, bingo, musical present, balloon popping relay, bubble blowing contest, and of course the beloved pinata? We love this boy! He makes us laugh every single day. 
Some things Matt loves:
*To joke
*Video Games
*Teasing his sister
*Talking on the phone

Matt wanted a baseball cake for his friend party. I forgot the stripes on the ball, oops!
Bubble blowing champ!

Cake and cupcakes for family party
When we went to check on the kids before going to bed, we found that Matt had snuck into bed with McKenna and they were snuggling her night light moon. What a way to finish out the perfect day!
