Month: April 2014

How Jack has been spending his time, summed up in 4 seconds.

Lucy is 6!

She woke up to balloons.

Lucy is 6!

And birthday greetings.

Happy Birthday, Lucy!

“I have so many special things,” she smiled.

"I have so many special things!"

After a day at school and piano class, we celebrated with cake.

And a round of her new HedBanz Game.

It was a happy birthday for my sweet girl.

My six year old

The world is a better place with her in it.

A girl I love is turning six tomorrow.

I made inside and out rainbow cupcakes for her to share with her friends at school. These are the prettiest three.

Let us assume the rest look as good as this, if not better!

This is the one I took a bite of –

– for quality control purposes and also so you could see what the inside of the cupcakes look like.

April is National Kite Month

Phoebe flies her kite

And the flying is easy.

Shall we play a game? (But you’ve got to say it in a robot voice, like in WarGames.)

We’ve been having Family Game Night every other week since the start of the year and it’s been a whole lot of fun.

Family Game Night

We kicked it off with a new edition of a classic game: Clue. Lucy won, so she got to pick the game for the next game night.

Week 2: Wits and Wagers Party and Blokus. Lucy won, again. On both counts. And it’s not like we were letting her!

Week 3: Another classic. Mousetrap. Grandma & Phoebe won.

Week 4: Uno. Lucy won, of course.

Week 5: Wits and Wagers Party, again. And I won, with the help of my supportive sidekick, Jackson.

Week Six: Our new favorite game. (It’s the one in the picture.) Ticket To Ride. Lucy won – on game night as well as three out of the next five times we played!

Week Seven: Clue. Because Lucy never tires of Clue. Grandma won – on her first guess! So, we played again and I won, but Grandma gets to choose the next game.

Do you have any suggestions?

And this is how April 1st ended.

Cupcakes* for dinner.

Meatloaf cupcakes with mashed potato frosting

(*of meatloaf and mashed potatoes)

And Kool Aid* to drink.

Jello drink

(*Jello, actually.)

This is how April 1st began.

“Good morning, kids!”

Balloon Avalanche

“Hey, have you seen your dad?”
