Discovery Bear

Matthew was chosen to take home his classroom Bear this past weekend. Matthew was more excited about it than I thought he would be. We had fun having Discovery Bear with us for the weeked. The bear got to watch Matthew get his hair cut, got to Emma's soccer game, play with Matthew's dinosaurs and Emma's bear Love Bear, go out for Frozen Yogurt, sleep in Matthew's bed and attend church with us. He was the perfect house guest and we are glad he is our friend!

Stop Growing Already!

My kids keep growing. I guess it's because I feed them and take good care of them, but sometimes I really wish they would stop! They are getting so big I can't believe it. On New Years Eve Day I got Emma's hair cut. With her new glasses and her do hair do she looks so mature. How can my sweet little girl look so grown? And Matthew went shopping for new Church clothes with Ben and when my husband sent me this picture I gasped. He looks like a little gentleman. Where did my baby boy go? In all honesty I love that they are growing up but somedays I just sit and think how much I am going to miss these days when they are so little! Good thing I have this blog to keep the good memories.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Stars

It's no secret I love my kids. And I can't brag on them enough. So here again is some gushing from a proud mother about her little super stars.

Emma was presented again with the Bright Star award at school. Meaning she has shown she is kind and considerate and a big help at school. We proudly watched her cross the stage and receive her certificate from her sweet Principal Ms. Flowers. Every year her teachers tell us what a pleasure it is to have her in their class. Ms. Beattie this year told me the following: "Emma makes my day EVERY day!". What a great thing for a parent to hear!

Matthew has learned a lot at school this year. He is making friends and getting smarter every day. I was not sure what to expect from his Christmas performance. He had been practicing his songs but he is not as comfortable on stage and in the spotlight as his sister. My guesses were he would either be too shy to participate or be so loud and off tune that he wouldn't be missed! Well I was pleasantly surprised that he did a perfect job. He sang great with his class. I could hear him at times and he was fantastic. The other awesome thing was that he was front and center on the stage so we had a great view of him and his sweet smile! Emma really enjoyed being in the audience for a change and getting to root for her brother. It was a great night!

I know I have more proud moments to come and I just can't wait!!!
