March Fun!

      As crazy as it is to have so many of our birthdays close together, it's a lot of fun for the kids. Shortcake kept building cakes around the house with cups and dolls and whatever she could find!
 These two have so much fun together! Little divas!
One of Shortcake's teachers sent home a volcano science experiment. She LOVED it!
 We had to celebrate Pi Day (3.14) with some cheese pie (quiche) for dinner.
 Our little girl and her baby playing Quirkle with us one Sunday evening.
 Rosie is just adored by her siblings and they always want to take pictures with her. Goofy and Rosie playing in Nana's backyard.

 Preschool fun!
 Tink and Bucko went to the temple the same day I took Minnie to get her ears pierced. Such a great group of youth!
Minnie had a field trip in March as well. They went to a museum in Denver. One of my friend's chaperoned and sent me this picture.
 Tink received her academic letter! We didn't go to the ceremony so I had her smile for me when she brought it home from school.

Minnie turns 11!

How is this possible? I think I've come to grips with the older two being teenagers, but having Minnie turn 11 just seems crazy! She wanted to have the same brownies that she had last year, so that was easy. She had her school play the night of her birthday too, so we were running around with that and celebrated afterward. Minnie was part of the crew who took care of the set, so she wasn't on stage much but I did catch a couple pictures of her.

 She sang the final song out on the stage with everyone else.

 Shortcake wrapped up Minnie's pillow pet and gave it to her. So thoughtful. ;)
What she really wanted for her birthday was to re-pierce her ears, so we did that the Saturday before her birthday.
 She also really wanted to have a party with friends, so we did crafts and a made a movie with her friends the next Saturday.

I got my blog book for 2016 a couple months ago, and Minnie went straight to March to see her birthday. Well, I apparently forgot to blog about her birthday last year! I also didn't put up any pictures of our Easter egg hunt either. I think I forgot because it was right before I got my new camera and forgot to put up the last pictures from my old camera. Anyway, to rectify this wrong, I am posting pictures from last year so we have them recorded.
Minnie wanted brownies for her birthday with Andes mints on top.
The kids' hole in the backyard got significantly bigger last year. I love this picture of them playing in it.
And here's the egg hunt from last year:
