It's my day!

Well, it is the end of the year and it was a super special day for Kyndall.  It was her Preschool Graduation!!  CUTE overload in this post!!!  First of all, were they wanting all the Mommies to cry when they did a slide show of these???:
I mean, come on, don't you think I am realizing how fast she is growing up without them doing something like this!!!  I'm pregnant...let the tears flow!!!  Anyway, I want you to remember this post in September, where Kyndall looked like she was going to ball her eyes out on her first day of preschool and now look at her...happy as can be with her teachers:

Ms. Kari

Ms. Alichia

She came down the aisle to graduate in her sweet little hat:

Lined up on stage to sing their final preschool songs:

Then Sat down and waited patiently as a class to get their diplomas:

Kyndall got hers for being "Miss Creative"

We are so proud of our little graduate!!!

So we left the graduation and told Kyndall we would take her anywhere she wanted to go to celebrate Graduating Pre K and being such a sweet, smart, precious little girl.  She said, "because it's my day today!"  Yes, love, it is YOUR day today!!  She likened it to Mother's day and how I got to choose everything.  Sure, enjoy little one!!!

So what is next?  Oh, that would be Big School Kindergarten.  Do you know what you have to do to register for Kindergarten?  Let me tell you, gather your child's SS card, Birth Certificate, shot records from your Pedi, fill out a 2 page info sheet, bring in a water/gas/electricity bill to prove you live where you live, and YOUR driver's license...whew.  Then take it up to the school (with your future little kindergartener) and let her see/meet the people there.  Success!!  Kyndall is super excited, the school is cute, clean, and the staff was super friendly.  Now, you would think since I am a former teacher (6 years teaching 2nd grade before my sweet girls) I would be very confident and happy to drop her off there.  WRONG!!  When did she get big enough for kindergarten?  How did this happen, I was right here all along and am still not ready to send her off.  But, I will be by August right?  Until then I will be praying that God gives her an amazing teacher that will nurture her, love her, and teach her so that she is as happy there as she has been at home with me these last 5 years.  I love my big girl!!!

Here is a slideshow of some highlights of her year at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church's Pre K!!

Baby Update

Well, I thought I would give an update on Baby-on-the-way (yes, we are still trying to come up with/agree on a name!!)
*  I am 15 weeks pregnant
*  We did a screening at 12 weeks and they are guessing the baby is a girl ! 
*  I am starting to feel fluttering, but not a whole lot of movement.
*  My belly button totally started poking out at 14 weeks...seriously, a little early don't you think?
*  My cravings right now are baked potatoes (can't get enough) Sweet tea (I make decaff and drink it ALOT), tator tots from Sonic, and Taco Cabana breakfast tacos (yum!!!)
*  Our top names right now are: Emery, Evelyn, and Capri, however we are not even close to making a decision and are adding/subtracting names constantly!
*  Kyndall's name suggestions have been: Rose, Teddy, Nina and Carolina Rose
*Avery's suggestions have been: Daddy...yep Daddy....guess who she adores:)  Pretty sweet huh...Kyndall agreed with her:)

I will have 2 more Disney posts soon and a post about Muffins with Mommy fron Kyndall's Preschool and Mother's day highlights soon!!

Hollywood Studios....on day 2

Wow, we had a fun time at Hollywood Studios....We saw 3 shows; The Little Mermaid, Disney Jr., and Beauty and the Beast.  Avery and Kyndall liked The Little Mermaid the best, but I LOVED Beauty and the Beast!!!  Take a look at our pics for more of what we did there!!!

As we walked in, Kyndall ran to the deer for a pic!  Ha!

 Cute pic of Kyndall and Daddy watching Disney Jr. program:
 How fun was Disney is the Jake and the Neverland Pirates dablooms came falling from the sky all over us when this part ended!!  Too fun!
 This was the girls' favorite was too dark to take pics in the show...and we couldn't use flashes:(
 Kyndall, Avery, Jim and I were watching this lady chocolate coat all the candy from outside, she waved us in and let Avery and Kyndall make their own Chocolate covered Strawberries!!  How sweet huh!!

 Beauty and the Beast.  What a great performance!!  I loved that it was free but felt like a real play...2 thumbs up!!!
 Ha!  Avery and I were in awe!!!
 Finally, we got our custom ears!  There were a lot to choose from, so it took awhile to pick the perfect ones out....I thought the girls picked great!!!
 Oh yea, we even got them personalized!!
 Kyndall loved hers too:
 She picked silver for her name on the back:)
We had a long, fun day at Hollywood Studios!!

We went home, and Jim took the girls for a swim while I napped with our youngest:)  We were exhausted!!
