Alexis Crawling!!! I caught her!

I have a feeling that in the near future, I won't so leisurely be able to grab the camera and videotape her.  Alexis is on the move!  
Hope you enjoy the sound track.

(Matt is golfing so I get to listen to "Mommy Music" in the house, in surround sound - I had actually turned it down while Jessica was sleeping)
So proud.  She had already crawled over to Matt's TV, but I didn't have the camera ready.

Jessica's Graduation

Hopefully now you are all realizing that I'm catching up on a couple of weeks of pictures.  Here is Jessica's graduation from June 15th.  She was in a Preschool program at the Tenney Grammar School in Methuen.  
Here she is "waiting patiently"   
And distracted by mom with the camera. 
Here's Jessica with her graduation package.   
And they sing a song. . . . She was so happy.  She's so sad that she'll be missing her other school for the rest of the summer and next year.  She kept asking when she would go back.

Father's Day Weekend

Over Father's Day Weekend, we went to East Hill Farm in Troy NH.  
It is a great family farm, I summarized it as "Dirty Dancing meets Farm".  It is all inclusive - all meals included in the room rate.  It was wonderful!  Snacks and yummy treats the whole day (=bad for waist line).  
View outside our window, that's Mt Monadnock in the background.
This is Jessica's favorite spot the whole weekend.  She loved the swings! 
Alexis came to sit with Jessica. 
Alexis wanted to find her toy.  
Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention so I missed the photo op of Jessica with Cathy the Cow (who has since had baby June - 
Cathy was a very large mom cow, now we understand why.  
Here's Matt with one of the horses.   
Feeding the Donkey.   
Matt having a moment with the donkey.... 
Feeding our favorite the sheep..... BAA!

The PIGS.  Smelly!

The other sheep! 

The ball court, where Matt played dodgeball all afternoon.
Alexis was a spectator.  And Jessica either played on the swings or did crafts with me. 
It was great family fun!  It was really a great fun.

Jessica's Birthday

Jessica turns 5 today.  She had a fantastic birthday party.  Everything was great.  A lot of little friends from her two schools and then other close family friends - all of whom were fighting over who could sit beside Jessica.  
The Cake - provided by Icing Smiles.  Jessica from Jessica's Cakes made a beautiful themed "Princesses doing Gymnastics".  It was beautiful and quite tasty!

The Venue - provided by Legends Gymnastics in North Andover.  Here's Jessica bouncing down the trampoline.
The Fun - Jessica was Queen Bee, she was wonderful and enjoyed having all of the attention.  Here's the video of her swinging.... She loved it!

The Friends - Here's a group shot.  They were all watching the bouncy house being inflated.  Alexis was kind of grumpy because it was warm in the gym.  

We're especially grateful to Icing Smiles for helping Jessica make Jessica a beautiful cake!  She adored it!
