Tonight was Lillian's first "Daisy" meeting at St. Anne's church basement. What a fun bunch of girls. Just 5 Kindergarteners; Lillian, Brenna, Charlotte, Addie & Graceyn. And five - 1st Graders; Anna, Kylie, Hailey, Emma and Mary. We just missed cookie sales for the 2016-2017 season. But that gives us a whole year to learn the ropes and hit the sales market hard next year. Haha!

Grammy & Opa offered a great suggestion - they read about the Annual "Little Shop of Physics" Science Fair at CSU. Unfortunately, we heard about this awesome Science Geek opportunity a little too last minute for Holden, Everett & Keira to join us. But I'm so glad we went! There were hundreds of interactive displays; black lights, radio frequency, sound echo/transmitting devices, liquid nitrogen ice cream (with free samples!!!), and so much more. The kids loved seeing their muscles in their hands and jaw work on the iPad. They loved watching the smoke rings float above their heads. They loved making molecules with pipe cleaners. But most of all they loved interacting with the very enthusiastic college students. We will be back next year!

Lillian was BORN to wear this dress! We've been brushing up on what it means to be a flower girl and training her to make Cousin Emily's day the most memorable, magical day of her life! Now....we have to make sure Lillian doesn't play dress up in it before June 10th!

We were so excited to be invited to Ava's birthday party, Lillian's friend Ava from St. Anne's happens to live next door to our old neighbors the Cabrals. We were able to visit with Ava, Angelo and Vince for a while before the party. It was nice to get to know a few more St. Anne's family and friends and watch the girls paint their masterpieces!

I am so happy that Joseph had this awesome opportunity!
Little People Landing is an amazing school with a very brave teaching staff. They escorted a dozen four year olds up to Loveland for group skiing lessons today and Miss Christina took some great pictures for me. Joseph loved his ski lesson with "Fairy Mary" and had so much to talk (and dance) about at dinner tonight!

Casey & Rob hosted a great Super bowl Party for the whole family and many, many friends!
The men watched in the basement while the ladies gossiped on the main floor and the kids ran amuck all over. The Lady Gaga half time show caught the attention of the women and children. The boys came up for a food/drink break from the game during halftime and found this scene:
And Miss Holden will remember this day for a while - she lost a tooth during the game!
