Parties, Soccer, and Seuss.

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

March is a birthday time around here. Jack and Avery turned seven yesterday! Happy Happy Birthday Birthday. And tomorrow Lillie turns 12. TWELVE! But you'd think she was turning sixteen. Over the weekend we had a joint family party for these three.
We had our choice of a couple of amazing birthday cakes. Lillie made a four layer multi flavored cake, and Mel made a chocolate bunt cake. There was lots of playing in the back yard with frisbees and a slack line balance beam too.
Lillie handed down her My Little Pony sweatshirts to Avery this weekend. These sweatshirts were very well loved by Lillie, and I'm guessing they will be well loved by Avery as well. Last weekend could have been a weekend of several blogs, so here is a little catch up:
Lillie was out selling Girl Scouts Cookies at the local Safeway. There are even more site sales in the future. Yup, cookies everywhere!
Preston played in his indoor soccer team's last game. It was also the championship game for the league. Their team was down a few goals with just a few minutes to go and thanks to an amazing finish, Preston scored the tying goal with just moments to spare in regulation. It was very cool. A sudden death playoff didn't go this team's way, but what a cool way to end a season. And a chapter. Many of these kids have been on the indoor team since 7th grade and many of us parents got together for a dinner before the game. Next for these kids will be college.
Last night was Dr. Seuss night at our school. I think this is the 7th year I've been The Cat In The Hat. This year's photo booth was very cool as there were props. This is the way the whole evening went for me. Very fun.

See you tomorrow.

Happy Birthday to Lillie, Jack & Avery! I'm glad you reminded us of Lillie's age, since I figured she was about ready for college. You look cute in your Cat outfit, as always, love, susanna

Happy Birthday to Jack & Avery!!! Seven seems so big to me, but clearly 12 is MUCH BIGGER. What a fun day of celebrations!
