Weekend in Ocean Shores.  Spent the days playing in the sand and enjoying the sun!
One of the highlights was stopping at the star wars store in Aberdeen.  It's completely full of star wars stuff and all three of my boys were in heaven!  Came home with a couple of storm trooper guns that were from the late 80's and they are a favorite with all the little boys in our neighborhood.

At the end of the year the preschool puts on a spring sing.  There is nothing cuter than watching 30 kids between the ages of 3-5 sings songs!  The backdrop was a quilt and each square was a print of their hand. Such a special night.  Love watching Easton sing and praise the Lord at his school!

Easter 2015.  A beautiful morning for a quick Easter egg hunt and then off to church. 
Lots of frustration for Easton this year.  His brother was too fast and too tall and got to all the eggs before he could!
The real fun begins when they get to be with their cousins......not sure they can have any more fun together!

Happy 6th Birthday my sweet boy! I have loved watching you grow this year in school.  You are smart and excited to learn.  I'm so proud of you and can't wait to see what this year brings.  I love you so much!
Cohen chose a soccer theme for his birthday this year.  It's always interesting heading to Party City so they can figure out exactly what they want to do for their birthday.  We spent a very long time going between transformers, ninja turtles and spider man.  I suggested we take a break and walk around the store and once we found the sports aisle he was sold on soccer. 
He had some good friends from kindergarten come and it was great getting to watch them interact.  He has met some really sweet kids this year.
He loved reading the cards from his friends.  It's such a cute age.  They are all writing and I love reading their version of how words should be spelled!
Chris took Cohen down to a bike shop and let him pick out his bike.  He chose this amazing beach cruiser and I'm in love with it!  Hoping to find one in my size one day.

Well it's Christmas in July around here!  Can't believe its taken me this long to get anything posted and can't believe I was so horrible at taking pictures this Christmas!  It's always a great time. My boys adore their cousins and look forward to every minute they get to spend with them!

Visiting Santa this year was a lot of fun.  They had trains set up, art stations, bounce houses and movies for the kids to watch while they waited to get their picture taken.  Cohen asked for a guitar and Easton asked for another Batman.

Both the boys had Christmas concerts at their schools this year.  This has to be one of my favorite things to watch as a parent.  The kids work so hard learning their songs and all the motions to go along with each one.  There is always one kid who is terrified and just stands frozen looking at the audience and always a few who have too much energy to stand still and wait for the next song to start. 

Snowflake lane, one of my favorite traditions in December.  This year we went down early, had dinner at Earls, played video games in the arcade, watched the parade and ended the evening swimming in the hotel pool.  The boys loved every moment of this weekend, except the shopping part!

Happy 4th birthday Easton! Your smile lights up the room and you have the biggest heart! I pray you stay this sweet for the rest of your life!
When I asked Easton what theme he wanted for his party he shouted "Batman!" I wasn't surprised considering he wears his Batman costume from Halloween almost everyday. I was just planning a small family party but he started asking me if all his friends were coming and my heart sank.  I sent out a last minute invite to his favorites and thankfully they were able to make it.

Love you Easton and I wish you an amazing year being 4!
