Ian meet and beat his trike-a-thon goal!! Thank you for those who participated! (You can still donate until next week).

Ian having a fantastic time riding!

Love the look on his face here!

Ian's school has met their goal as well. So, we're pretty pumped up. Eventually, Ian got off of his bike and began running and dodging other children on their bikes. I had to caution him against that.

On another note, this weekend, Stephen and I will be digging up nearly our entire yard getting it ready for next spring and other awesome plans that we have. We are also throwing away scraps and tables and things from the backyard that are atrocious. We got our dumpster in:

If you're bored this weekend, you should stop by and help!

Thanks again for everybody that helped! (Mainly, all of the grandparents and God parents!!)

Ian's Trike-a-thon

I'm a terrible mom and forgot to ask people all week long, but Ian is participating in a Trike-a-thon tomorrow at his school to raise money for St. Jude's. He is super about it. At school, they have learned all about bike safety and will be putting it to use tomorrow.

Ian's goal is to raise $100.00 total. And because I just remembered about this, we have raised $0. Anything would be appreciated, even $1.

Ian has his own personal donation site: Ian's Trike-a-thon.

Thanks in advance for your donation! I'll try and post pictures tomorrow of him riding.

Have a great night!

It's been nearly a year since I've last posted. And, instead of chatting the entire time, I'm going to share with you the most excited girl in the world:

 Mila and Stephen went on a daddy daughter date and Mila was super pumped up. She picked out her outfit and everything. She was doing all kinds of twirls and saying "princess" the entire time. So cute, so excited. I'm sure she'll continue to love these pictures in the future.
