Mayli's 1st Day of Kindergarten!

My Sweet Mayli Ann had her 1st day of kindergarten today. She was so excited for this day to come and told me when she got home that she had fun and loved to play outside. She really likes her teacher and Tori keeps me busy at home so hopefully it will be a good year!
Mayli was pretty sad when she found out that Kindergarteners at her school don't get to pick out a new backpack (they have to use this sweet bag). So I told her we would decorate it. I let her color on it and we put some sparkely things on it and she is pretty happy with it now!

Such a sweet face she has (her teacher is in trouble!)

She looks so big and grown up in this picture, I have to admitt the tears where flowing when I saw this picture :(

Little Tori wanted in on the fun. Don't they look so cute in their matching shirts! (We got a teal one for Zoe when she arrives, thanks Mom!)

Here she is in her new classroom, I can't believe she is old enough to go to school. I am so proud of you Mayli and I love you so much!

Mayli's 5th Birthday Pics (finally)

Mayli had her 5th birthday on July 14th and what a day it was! She wanted eggs in a bag and fruit for breakfast and was so excited to start her day! She got to open 1 present that morning with her cute new shirt and birthday princess crown in it.
We met up with Grammie Lori, Aunt Megan and Jax, and Aunt Catherine at PANDA for lunch, if she ever has her choice this is where she wants to go. Grammie gave her some presents while we were there.
That night we went to Chuck E Cheese for her party and she was so happy to play all the games. Skiball is her favorite!
Tori enjoyed all the games too but loved the things you could ride in the most!
Dancing it up with ChuckE!
So many presents and so little time!
This is her sweet cake that I made. She had lots of requirements for it, the balloons, the #5, the pink and green watermelon sprinkles and finally she wanted my mom to write "Mayli Ann loves her birthday" on it. What a silly girl!
Papa Nik rode his bike down from Show Low just so he could be there for her special day. Here is is with all the grandkids, so cute, thanks dad!
Grammie Lori and Grandpa Barry with the Birthday Girl, thanks you guys for all your help!
Grammie Lynette and Papa Danny with the Birthday Girl. Thanks for her cool puppy, she was so happy to see you got it for her!
No pictures but Aunt Catherine, Aunt Megan and Uncle Trent came too! It was a really fun night! Thanks everyone for making our sweet girls birthday so special!
