St. Paddy's Day

I love how St. Patrick's Day has been on the weekend for two years in a row now!  Makes for a fun day together!  Back by popular demand, I printed out some dot-to-dots and crossword puzzles...  

Made green swedish pancakes...
And the boys went on a scavenger hunt to find the pot of (chocolate) gold!

Some pictures of them in green 
(except Gavin who insisted the green stripe on his shirt was enough ;)!

Ella rockin' daddy's hat.  :)
And rainbow cupcakes for dessert!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Gavin is 7!

My middle guy turned 7!
 He broke the tradition of swedish pancakes and went for banana and blueberry pancakes instead. ;)

 I love this boy!
Kirby is the latest and greatest in our house lately.  :)
 Big cousin hugs!

 Gavin really wanted a roller skating party!  
He had only been on roller skates at this point, but he was determined to try roller blades for his party... and he did so good!
Grammy and Casey
This little guy was holding his own on skates!
Casey and Travis

 Ella with her best girl Lexi!
 Skating with my birthday boy!

Gavin and Evan... only three weeks apart!
 Grammy and Ella
 My sister and Maddie
I could only get my sister to skate for about five minutes... ha!
 Some air hockey...

 The glow room!

 Blowing out the candles!

 Trying out his new Mario chess game
 Birthday dinner at Samarai's
 Our little babushka!
 Casey ADORES his cousin Travis.  He looks up to him with every ounce of his little being.  So when Travis got him a BFF necklace, he was in absolute heaven!  They are so sweet!
 Our cook showing us tricks!
 I love how everyone is taken back by the fire except Travis... he was all over it!  Too funny!

 Watching the show with Daddy
 The birthday drum!
 Being silly!
 Such a great day with friends and family!  Thanks for making Gavin's birthday so special!!
