Cyler's Birthday Party

We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that came out to share and help us celebrate our little boys first birthday! (I can not believe that this is the last 1st birthday party that I will be throwing! sniff sniff) Cyler had a wonderful party and seemed to enjoy it! 
 Lorena made a wonderful pinata for the party. The kids had so much fun taking a swing at it and getting all the candy dumping out of it!

 Yummy sugar cookies

Thank you so much to everyone that took time out of their lives and busy schedules to come and help us celebrate. It really means a lot to us to have such wonderful friends and family to join us in our celebration.

Cy's First Birthday

Tonight we celebrated Cy turning one with some pizza and cupcakes, really what more could a little boy want!

Stella's End of the Year Program

Today was Stella's end of the year program, it was a Red, White, and Blue theme. I love the songs they sang and Stella did such a wonderful job today! 

 Cy loved the program he was having great time!

 Mrs. Jenny has been a wonderful teacher for Stella this year. We have been so impressed with all that she has learned this year and know that she is so well prepared for Kindergarten next year. Stella is so excited about what the future holds and I know that has a lot to do with how well Mrs. Jenny has prepared her for all that is to come.
 Stella told us that she wants to be a ballerina and singer  when she grows up!

Stella we are so proud of you this year and how wonderful you have done in Pre K. I can not wait to watch you grow and flourish in school in the next couple of years. I am just so proud of you and love you so much!

Cyler is One!

Cyler Ward Skarsten
I can not believe that it was just a year ago that Daddy and I were at the hospital awaiting your arrival. I was so glad to finally have you on the outside, to hold you in my arms and realize that you were the perfect finish to our wonderful family. If have filled up our home with love and laughter. You have taught me so many things as a mommy, you have taught me that I can survive on very little sleep for months at a time, that schedules are for the birds, that I can lift mountains because if I can lift your weight a mountain can't weight that much more, that a smile can get me through a very rough day, that sometimes dishes, dusting, and laundry can wait but playing on the floor with you and your siblings is only going to happen right now. You are so relaxed and roll with the punches, it has made the adjustment from 2 to 3 kids so good for all of us. It has been such a busy year sense you were born, we have moved TWICE in a year but are finally settled in our home, you went through both moves like a champ! You still our not wild about being in the church nursery but our getting better about it. You have finally started to take a pacifier in the middle of the night instead of a bottle and are sleeping for at least 5 hours at a time which is way better than waking up every hour! You are wearing size 3T tops and size 2T bottoms. You just went to the Dr. and weighed in at 34 pounds and 4 ounces and are in the 145% for weight and our 32 inches long which puts you in the 99% for height. Cyler you are one big boy and we could not be prouder to call you our child, we love you so much!
