Wednesday was Cricket Day. That is to say it was the 8th anniversary of our big boy joining our family. We are so grateful that we were given the opportunity to be his family.
Cricket picked donuts for breakfast and swimming and a trampoline park for his activities. He had a god day.
Love you, Buddy!
The problem with not blogging for a few months is that I still have things I meant to blog about, and they feel like they are hanging around over my head. So I thought I would throw them altogether in one or two long posts. So to tie up some loose ends....
In November, we celebrated Butterfly's family day by going to our local Children's museum. The kids had a ton of fun. It was Dragonfly's first time there. She did enjoy herself a lot.
The last picture cracks me up because it was taken as we were leaving. Daddy and the older kids were all in the huge kaleidoscope. Miss Dragonfly was ready for her nap and was NOT impressed. :)
November also saw Ladybug's 7th birthday and her party. She wanted a swimming party so that is what she got. :) This was extra special because while Butterfly and Cricket always have water parties with their summer birthday, Ladybug has never had something like this. It was a big hit and nice not to have to clean the house for me. :) She asked for a "Frozen" cake. Not my favorite cake I've done, but she was very happy.
We recently brought the play kitchen up from the basement and but it in the livingroom so Dragonfly could play with it whenever she wants. All the kids got into playing restaurant again. Cricket and Dragonfly cooked and Ladybug was waiting tables. Lil' Bug was the one customer.
Cricket and Ladybug were in an art class at co-op this fall. They got to do a lot of fun projects. Here are some of them.
