CHOO CHOO! Ethan is soon to be TWO!?!

Time to order and send out Ethan's 2nd birthday party invitations. He LOVES trains, or "Choo Choo's", as he calls them. Literally he pushes them around and carries them around all day. Any time he hears a train he immediately gets excited and wants to go see it! Sooo naturally it made since to have his bday where there was a train! We are going to Dan Nicholas Park. Here's the website: It really is a neat place for a party!

I made the card on Shutterfly b/c I had some Pampers Points to redeem! Paid only 5.00 for shipping for 25 invites! Awesome! Shutterfly does a great job for something personalized! AND since I shared it on my blog, I will get a code for 10.00 off my next order! WHAT a DEAL! You know I love the deals! ha! ha!

Hard to believe our lil Hannah is now 5 1/2 years old and will be attending kindergarten this fall! 
Preschool Graduation's "theme" this year was "Under a Shady Tree", trying to find the perfect place for a picnic. 
They did songs by Laurie Berkner like "Buzz Buzz" and "Under a Shady Tree" and also some classics like "I am a Promise" and "The Ants Go Marching In". 
They put up a slideshow at the beginning with pictures of the kids and also their names with a picture. Here are a few of the slides:

They sang their songs and did an awesome performing job!

(Poison Ivy on my knees)
(Poison Ivy on my Nose....)
(Poison Ivy on my Rear!)
(Buzz Buzz Buzz)

(The Ants Come Marching In....)
(Uh oh...Its raining on their picnic!)

(Nope, too hot for a picnic)
(Under a Shady Tree...You and ME!...The PERFECT place for a picnic!)

Then they got their diplomas......

And celebrated by dancing on stage with a parent(s).  

What a bittersweet day.....emotions from having a firstborn graduate preschool are running high, but we are SO PROUD of Hannah! May you have many more accomplishments and things to be proud of along the way! We love you!!
Mommy, Daddy, and Ethan
and Mimi and GG too ;)
