Preschool Program

In April Jacob and Claire had a preschool program. They sang a bunch of songs, most of them about Jesus (they go to a Christian preschool). They were so excited... mostly Claire, Jacob seemed much more excited when he wasn't on stage.
He noticed that his friend had on a "Cars" T-shirt. Claire knew all the actions and words (so did Jacob, I have heard them all at home, but he seemed to have forgotten them).
The shakers were really fun for all the kids, but Jacob must have grown weary of them by the time the song was over.
This is exhausting! Claire is SO happy with herself and looks at us after every song with a big grin.
Jacob just can't quite stay standing.

"Oh, I have gel in my hair." Claire has her classic 'see how good I did' face.
"Wow, look at my shoes."
"That shirt has Lightning McQueen!" He really spent ALOT of the program bending over looking at this T-shirt, once he leaned so far forward to see it that he fell right off the risers.

The whole group.
It was a very cute program and Jared and I spent a lot of it laughing. It was really funny to watch how cute they were and how differently they both responded to being on stage. (I realize this was a lot of very similar pictures, but I assure you it is only a very small sampling of the pictures I took).

Happy Birthday Jared!

I am now married to a man who is one short year shy of 30 (30 is really old). I am so glad I found him though, and so glad he chose me. He is my sweetheart. He is always good for a laugh and always up for a good time. Jared has a adventuresome spirit and I love it!
He is such a good daddy... these two love him; I am pretty sure that they think that the world revolves around daddy and he is responsible for the sunshine and every good thing in their lives.
Claire is his little princess (and she knows it).
He is quite handsome (and he thinks he is quite cute).
Jacob is his miniature, and he loves it.
Sunday was Jared's birthday and we had some friends over to celebrate. All of the kids flock to Jared, they think that his games are the most fun. He is really popular with the children.
I asked Jared what he wanted for dinner and he said "cornbread" (thanks for the help). I asked him what kind of cake he wanted and he said "baseball" (not exactly the question I was asking). Remember how I said he thinks he is cute?
So he had a baseball party. With a baseball cake.
and baseballs made out of ice cream.
I think he liked it!
Happy Birthday Sweetie!
