We got a pink polka dotted beam delivered by Grandma Susie, Roe calls it a "bean", it has become a pretty permanant piece in our living room.

Monroe's preschool program was last night and I got two pictures, one which is fuzzy. When Xander had his program 2 years ago, I videotaped the whole thing and took several pics. Curious what I will capture when its Jude's turn. The program was super cute of course and the kids enjoyed way too much sugar after. I don't think Roe left the cake walk.

with these fun belts from sass & frass. Cindy and I headed to Salina for a womens show, it was a blast, I love this lady. Her business partner was out of town, so I got to fill in. They have the cutest belts, headbands, purses, aprons, jewelry that are perfect teacher/mothers day gifts. At the rate we have been going I will have to buy Xander's teacher several, save for another post...
Monroe and I sporting our new headbands.

Mason escorts Liz to junior prom (More pics on miller mania)
Loved the girls dress choices, Monroe approved as well, long, flowy, and colorful.
The kids and I went to the mall for the promenade Saturday night, so fun to watch these kiddos all dressed up. I hear there is a second chance prom next weekend if there is someone who didn't get to go first time around, we may have to go next week too to see what the fashion trend is.

The Easter Bunny brought the kids these homemade popsicle holders and I think we have used them 25 times already, they were also a great bribe for these dancers to practice a few times. Sidenote: Monroe really has clothes she just prefers to wear this gymnastics suit everyday.

Mrs.Hinkle sent me this picture of Monroe in preschool with Rawlings the gecko sitting on her head, I love that my ballerina isn't really so much of a girly girl. She informs us the best pet to have, doesn't smell and only eats once every 2 weeks, the Ponds could handle this one.
We visited the bug museum for the K-state openhouse, the kids enjoyed cockroach races and ate chocolate covered crickets, they thought they tasted a little crunchy.

God I LOVE this girl. We have been friends since 6th grade, were Amanda Pandas together, experienced our first airplane ride together to Bela's gymnastics camp in Texas, were in Washington dance together, diving together, we have laughed and cried together SO much, mostly laughing that leads to crying. Maren is the friend that I may not see for 3 years, but when we do see each other it is completely the same and we still have so much to talk about, even though we are at totally different places. I love you Maren, prayers for a great transition from Mexico to the UK!

typically it is one kid that won't participate in the photo op, but as shown above they were all three high on sugar and in their own world, I just wanted one nice posed picture, nope, not so much.
Jude is at the cutest age for egg hunts. He would light up and shout everytime he found one and opened one, I was completely entertained by this routine.

We made our own little rendition of Bakerella's cupcake pops with some toppings and popsicle sticks we had leftover from birthdays. The cookie truffle recipe called for baked cookies, crunched up and mixed with cream cheese. The consistency freaked me out a bit, so I couldn't enjoy the finished product. The kids loved them though.
