Shanna and Haley: 11!!!

Just like that the girls are inching closer and closer to being teenagers.  The big 11th birthday happened and I think it was a success! 

Shanna and Haley each made a list of birthday present ideas. I forgot to take a photo, but on the back of Haley's she also wrote down what NOT to get her. I let them know from the start that they would be getting maybe two presents.

The morning of their birthday the girls opened their presents from Cal. He was very generous!

I had a Pikachu cake request from Haley (she had that last year as well) and a donut tower for Shanna.

I had a field trip that morning with Elden.  Lee came to the rescue and did some decorations in Shanna and Haley's lockers.

Shanna's big gift was a doctor's set, which is pretty realistic! She also got a foot brace.

Haley received a special Pokemon set.

We had church activities that night so we headed to the girl's choice that night for dinner: Wood Grill Buffet.  I must say (if there is money in the budget!) it's super nice going out to eat on their birthday!  No mess to clean up at home with dinner!

The girls seemed to enjoy their birthday and family party. 

The next day I received some fun volunteer gifts from one of my favorite teachers!

Lee and I also headed out for a golfing date one afternoon.  I had a lot of fun.  Lee wanted to go golfing because his schedule was empty and contacted a couple of people but they couldn't go. I suggested that I go along.  I loved it!  I drove the cart and he golfed.  Perfect!

Spring Fling also happened the beginning of May. Sadly Spring Fling seems to happen when other activities are going on.  We couldn't stay long, but Shanna was able to get a pie in her face before we left.
