The Graduate

Lily is officially a first grader now. I can not believe how quickly this year flew. She has grown so much academically and socially. Actually, maybe even a little bit too much socially, LOL (the girl will not stop talking!) I can't believe I was worried about how she was going to learn to read just a few months ago and now she's reading chapter books. And she just loves it. AJ got her a book light for her bedroom and she reads for a long time before falling asleep every night. She has mean parents that make her go to bed at 8pm, so this was the least we could do.

She didn't have an official graduation ceremony, but her school had a family picnic day. So, AJ, Lia and I were able to celebrate her last day of school with her.

This is her box car she made for the kindergarten race.

I don't have anything to compare it to(since I don't have a sister), but I think our girls really do get along pretty well. And I just happened to capture it in this photo.

Backyard fun

We did it. We got the girls a playset for the backyard. They came to install it last Friday and we haven't seen the girls since. Just kidding, but they are totally digging it.

Happy Birthday Dada!

Not only is today Cinco de Mayo, but it's also AJ's (aka Aaron, aka Dada) birthday!! We celebrated it last weekend with some amazing sushi with AJ's parents, and a delicious cake made by AJ's mom.

Lovin' the sushi boat (Lily thought we were going to be able to bring it home, LOL)

And I interrupt this birthday celebration with a plea of help. I'm obviously having some exposure issues with my new lens. Can any of you photogs out there help me? These were taken on auto and my flash did go off. I can give you more info if you need it.

Happy Birthday!! We love you!

Your 3 girls!

Couple of funnies from today

I must share a couple of funny moments I captured with my camera today. I heard the girls giggling uncontrollably on the stairs, so, of course, I had to investigate. They were playing "hair salon". Lily was the stylist and Lia was the client.

And here is Lia surprising us at dinner tonight. First of all she is eating something other than dairy or a carbohydrate (it was spicy garlic chicken!). Secondly, she can use chopsticks like a champ. We have no idea how or when she picked that little skill up.
