Mark's birthday survey

Mark is turning 6 next week on the 4th and his birthday party is Saturday.  I wanted to document him and his favorite things so I found some questions on pinterest and surveyed him.  I guessed most of his answers but it was still fun!

favorite color: blue
favorite movie: Avengers
favorite food: spaghetti
favorite dip: ranch
favorite fruit: apple
favorite sport: baseball
favorite animal: birds
favorite drink: Sprite
favorite subject/activity at school: centers
favorite song: Song of the Rescued (Highlands Worship)
favorite book: Alphabet book
favorite holiday: Christmas
favorite snack: yogurt
best friend(s) at school: Wyatt and Antonio
What do you want to be when you grow up? a Dad (be still my heart...)
place you want to visit: Disney World
What are three words that describe you? helper, kind, hard worker

I just love this age.  He's independent and a huge help to me with A (sometimes too much ;) ).  He's loving school and amazes me everyday with his kind heart.  I'm so thankful this boy was my first born.  He's easy-going and gives me so much grace.  He has my heart.  I fear when he starts dating....I'm probably not going to approve of any of the girls!  ha!

I love you my handsome, sweet, thoughtful, curious, caring, independent little (almost) 6 yr old fella.  You made me a Mother, and I will forever cherish you.  Thank you for being who you are and for being the best big brother.  Mommy, Daddy, and Alyssah love you the most!

Alyssah's 3rd birthday!

Alyssah celebrated her birthday a few days early at school with her friends! 
Helping Mommy make her cupcakes :)

Mimzy helping A blow out the candles :)

We are blessed with so many friends that love our girl!

We had a great time celebrating our little girl.  I can't believe she is 3...seems like we just brought her home.  She is becoming such a sweet little lady.  Very independent and full of questions!  She weighs 38.5 lbs and is 38 inches long.  She still likes to be cuddled and carried...which I love but my arms do not ;)  She is obsessed with all things girly...princesses, bows, jewelry, dresses, and finger nail polish.  Her favorite things are Rapunzel, Frozen, Minnie Mouse, and Tinkerbell.

Here's to my beautiful, adorable, kind-hearted, snuggly, huggable, cheerful, joyful, head-strong, loving, girly 3 year old princess!  I love you my sweet Alyssah Elaine.  What a wonderful blessing you are to me and your Daddy.  Your brother adores you as well.  You are the best surprise I've ever received :)
