Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers day to all you amazing Dads and Grandpas! Especially Poppy Oliverio since we weren't able to spend the day with you! We hope you had fun fishing today in Alaska! We miss you tons and send you LOTS of hugs and kisses!! The world not be the same without daddies!! They are a shoulder to cry on.. a big bear hug when your sad...a security blanket when your scared and fill our hearts with an endless love!

A tower of strength when things go wrong
Understanding when the road is long
That is what put daddies above the rest
And to me Daddy, you are the best!

From baseball to basketball... we went from baseball right into basketball. Hayden wanted to try basketball for the summer since it is indoors. His team is the Cavaliers! He has played 2 games now and we were completely amazed at how good he is! Between Hayden and Cade they score the majority of the points during the games!! It almost seems like they are playing with each other and nobody else is around. I guess it is from all the basketball they play in our backyard together. The Cavaliers won this afternoons game 51-7! Way to go Hayden and Cade! You boys are studs!!

Boys..always having a good time!

Dance Recital 2009-Ignite The Spotlight

Elle and Hailee shared their first recital together last night! Hailee was amazing as always finishing off another year on competition team and the hip-hop team! She had 9 dances between the morning and evening shows. She always looks stunning up on stage.. especially for her solo! Elle actually got on stage and danced. She did bits and pieces of her dance to "Bushel and a peck" and then did her own thing for a bit too. I was just glad she got up there at all! Congratulations girls!! We are so proud of you and love you both so very much! XOXO

Elle and Hailee celebrating with a sucker.. hee hee!

Oh..our sweet little.. Hayden! I can't believe you are 9 today! Truly..where has the time gone? I remember moving into the house we are in and you had just turned 1! It seems like yesterday! Hayden has the biggest heart! He is so sweet, affectionate and such a loving kid! Hayden is so easy to get along with and makes friends everywhere he goes! Mainly because he is a little chatty and talks to just about anyone! Oh..the stories I could tell about the things he has told people.. hee hee! He is kind, smart, funny and an amazing athlete at every sport he does and tries!! His life is sports... and when he isn't out playing baseball, basketball or football..he loves video games too. We have truly been so blessed to be given such an amazing son! He was such a good and gorgeous little baby and has grown into such a great and handsome boy! We LOVE you more than you will ever know, Hayden! Happy Birthday! XOXO

Last day of school today...

It is crazy how quick this school year went!! Today was Hailee and Haydens last day of school. Good-bye 3rd and 5th grade.. hello 4th and 6th! They had an amazing year and both had WONDERFUL teachers! We couldn't have asked for better ones. We were so blessed!! The kids got their report cards and both got straight A's again.. WOO-HOO!! They also found out which teachers they are getting for next year! Hailee got the teacher she wanted ..Mrs. Tibke and Hayden didn't get his pick but from what I have heard got an awesome teacher..Mrs. Kunz!! I know the summer is going to go fast since they only have 8 weeks off. I am SO looking forward to spending some quality time with them!! I still get teary eyed dropping them off some days at school. They are just growing up way too fast!! Keep up the great work kiddos!! You always seem to amaze us! We love you both SO very much!!
