Almost 5

 In 3 days, I will have a 5 year old! 5! Guys! I cannot get over it. I feel like so much changes when a kid turns 5. They aren't so little anymore. I want to cry. I am going to be a mess come Tuesday. 

I love my (not so little) boy soooo much!

San Diego

 Kyle and I got to travel to San Diego a couple weeks ago (for his job). We stayed at The Torrey Pines Lodge. It was so nice! 

While the guys were at work, I went shopping and to lunch with my girls, Ashley and Lesley. Then we met up with our husbands at random restaurants. We ate so much good food and had so many good drinks. The views at some of the restaurants were incredible.

I am thankful (yet again) for my mother for watching the kids while we were gone. Next time we go to San Diego (on Father's Day weekend), we will be bringing the kids with us. It is our yearly family vacation. We will be staying at Hotel Del Coronado. Cannot wait!

Strep Throat

Strep throat has hit the Von Tersch household yet again. The victims this time are: Presley and Jackson. Poor things. They have been home with me since Wednesday morning. They are getting better every day but they are still not 100%. I am just thankful this is happening before Presley's big birthday party next week. Pray that we all get better and stay healthy! 

On a brighter note, I am getting a ton of spring cleaning done since I am stuck at home all day. :)

Easter 2018

 ^^^All the pictures above are from the kids' Easter party at school. They had a blast!

 On Easter morning, the kids woke up with baskets filled with goodies from the Easter bunny. We played outside (the weather was perfect), until my mom, dad and Grandpa came over. They brought more baskets with goodies, cupcakes, and the eggs (filled with candy) to hide. The kids had a great time looking for eggs. 

That afternoon, we went over to Kurt and Sara's house to celebrate Koko turning 5 years old. :) The kids ate so much sugar and went down the water slide so many times that they crashed the minute they got home. 

What a great day!

Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

Presley got selected to attend a leadership conference that was held today. When we received the letter a few weeks ago, we were so excited for our little girl. She never ceases to amaze us. 

The theme for the day was Wizard of Oz and go course, I jumped at the chance to dress Presley up. I live for stuff like this. 

Presley had the best day learning how to make good choices and made a ton of friends along the way.

We are so proud of our Dorothy for being such a leader and doing so well at school. Nothing makes me happier!

Lots of blog posts to come. I have been slacking big time!

Hello, Pokey!

Pokey is officially out of hibernation and we couldn't be more excited!

Watch the video to see the sweetest interaction between McCartney and Pokey. She uses the cutest voice when feeding him. I cannot get enough!

St. Patty's

Kissing some cheeks, pinching some other cheeks, making some corned beef and cabbage sliders for dinner, indulging in some green floats (lime sherbet and Sprite) for dessert, and feeling like I might get lucky with a charming fella named Kyle tonight. Ha. 

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Jackson's First Football Game as a Chief

Jackson had his first football game at CCV. He is on the Chiefs. He did a great job! A lot of the boys on his team are 6 or 7 (some were even 8 on the other team), but he kept right up with them. I cannot wait to see how much he improves over the next year or two. 

Go Jackson!
