First Days and Birthdays

Today was Mikayla’s first day of preschool.  She has been so excited to go back and see all of her friends.  I am excited to have a little more structure back in our lives, too.   Today was a little bittersweet, though.  This will be the last year that Mikayla will be in preschool…next year she will be in Kindergarten.  I can hardly believe that she is almost 5!  If you look here and here, you can see past posts from her other first days of school.  I can’t believe how much she has grown.IMG_3630 Mikayla requested eggs and cinnamon toast for her back to school breakfast.   She really isn’t much of an early breakfast person, so I wanted to make something she would actually eat.  IMG_3631 My sassy little girl all ready for preschool.  She was having a little too much fun posing for the camera.  :)IMG_3633

She is already to go!

Today was also, Jeremy’s 31st birthday.  (What a great birthday present to be able to have a quiet morning!)   We had a nice steak dinner and some cupcakes that Mikayla insisted that we make.  Jeremy isn’t much of a cake person, but Mikayla is very persuasive.  She helped me make the cupcakes and decided that we should have blue icing.  She had a lot of fun making Daddy’s birthday a little more special.

IMG_3638Gavin really enjoyed the cupcakes too!


He kept taking handfuls of icing and spreading them all over himself.  What a mess!
