Preschool Graduation

Lilly was so excited to graduate from preschool. She in now officially on her way to Kindergarten! I can hardly believe how big she has gotten. Her preschool class has only 6 kids in it. They have all learned so much this year. They did a cute little program for everyone and Lilly really knew all her words. Then they put on a little play for us. It was a variation on the 3 little pigs. Then we watched a video of their school year and then it was time for the diploma. Lilly was so proud of herself! Great job Lilly. We are so proud of you and can hardly wait to watch as you enter into this new world of going to school!

Birthday Treat for Preschool

Lilly's teacher at preschool has all the kids celebrate their birthday's at some point in the year. So those who have summer birthday's will typically get to celebrate them in the last month of the school year. All throughout the year I had heard that almost everyone has brought in cupcakes for their treat at school, and this was fine, except it seemed like half of the kids couldn't eat a cupcake without getting it all over themselves. The week before it was Lilly's turn to bring her treat, her friend Seth brought cupcakes, but this time the frosting was a very bright blue. The kind of blue that stains not only clothes but skin. Luckily they had their treats after their class pictures were taken because from what I heard it was a nightmare. There was blue frosting all over the kids. On their clothes and all over their faces.

So, for that reason I chose to do something a little different, and it ended up being a huge hit. I decided to make these Hello Kitty cake pops. I found the how-to at the bakerella website. Awesome website, by the way. I could have made cake pops a little easier, but Lilly has requested a Hello Kitty birthday party this year, so I decided to stick with her theme. All the kids loved them and they were the perfect treat. Hardly any mess at all.

If you ever decide to make these, send me a message and I'll give you all the how to changes that I had to make. I don't have a cake decorating store near me so I improvised on a few of the steps. All in all I think they turned out really cute.

The time has come for us to announce that we are expecting baby number 3 this fall! We are so excited to be adding to our little family! Lilly is hoping for a baby brother and she also told my doctor that she hopes he sparkles! (she is all girl!). Molly on the other hand is saying it will be a baby sister, and I am guessing that she is right. We are hoping to find out in another 3 weeks what we are having. I am seeing my normal doctor along with a neonatologist due to the fact that I am high risk this time around. I am feeling better now that my first trimester is coming to a close. We are just so excited to have a new little one and to have it here in time to celebrate the holidays!

Cinco De Mayo at Preschool

Lilly's preschool celebrated Cinco De Mayo by learning some Spanish and then having a pinata to cap it all off. Molly had a good time, but Lilly had an even better time. She just wanted the little toys instead of the candy (Hey, not too bad) although she came home with her fair share!
