Eden's first day of 7th grade!
"I went shopping & bought me a new dress at Ross's. Also hose & groceries" - Wednesday May 13, 1987
hahaha, I love it! So I am off today to buy a small pocket calendar so I can start my journaling (which is what my Grandma used), and I truly want to record my journal entries each week here on my blog, because every time I open up my blog my heart swells with love and pride. I love seeing everything in the past that has happened to my family :)
Easiest Birthday party ever!!
Trip to the Pie Pizzeria. Write on the walls (it's tradition). Be silly (of course, they are 12)
Mall Scavenger hunt. Be silly again. Eat cake and open presents in the food court. Done.
Presents for Eden: Her party :) and clothes, make-up, shoes, and decorated her room.
Asher had his first season of baseball and absolutely loved it. He rocked it too. The first half of the season was machine pitch and he had several double hitters and of course became the rockstar of his team. second half of the season was kid pitch and that became a little more difficult, but he didn't give up even though he didn't hit one ball :( It is so hard to know if the ball is in the strike zone or not! But because it's kid pitch he was able to make it to base many times he just had to suffer being hit with the ball. His team, the Giants, were 3rd in their league and will get a trophy so Asher is all smiles about that. Who doesn't want a trophy?
But something other than the trophy gave him an even bigger smile......His coach asked him if he could put his name in to play on the AllStars team!! We aren't sure what that means or entails, but Asher thinks that it's pretty exciting.
(coach asking him to play allstars)
The coach told us that Asher was his favorite player on the team "the kid has heart". ahhh just what a mom wants to hear. We love our boy.
You see that he is number 1?? it's not because he was the best player, it's because he was the absolute smallest on the team :) the smallest jersey is number 1, he was also the youngest. Go ASHER!
.....Shout Hooray! Little Miss Ainsley turned 4 on Sunday. Can I just say that I love that this little girl came to our family. She is so full of energy, which on somedays is a little exhausting and frustrating, but I wouldn't want her any other way. She is so kind to everyone and loves to do nice things for people, she says she "loves to make people's hearts feel happy".
Ainsley loves her friends! She asks everyday to have a friend over. Some of her friends right now are Sicily, Kai, Isabella, Rachel, Annie, Kika, and Aubrey. Her friends also include some of my friends and their teenage daughters. She adores Miss Barbie and Miss Alyson and it is common to find her giving them hugs and asking if she can come play at their house. Miss Barbie's daughter Elsa is also one of Ainsley's favorite buddies.
I love her smile and she is generous in sharing it. She is so sweet to her Brother and Sister, just yesterday at Asher's baseball she yelled out to 2nd base from the bleachers and said "just do your best Asher". It was so cute to hear her little voice call out and for him to glance over at her and give her a tender smile. Eden and Ainsley are perfect sister together, they do nails and play, Ainsley is always telling Eden she is pretty and Eden is always asking for hugs and kisses.
When we asked Ainsley what she wanted for her birthday she would always respond "everything! everything that's good and girlie". I loved it! And little Ainsley, WE LOVE YOU! Happy Birthday!!
