Ten Things to Smile About: April

I am sitting in the airport on my way to see Viv, Shawn, Jenny-Kate, Jen, Christy, & Connie in California, so I already have a BIG reason to smile....

But I love my monthly recap. So, for your viewing/reading (??) pleasure, here are my Top 10 Things to Smile about in April:
1. Of course, Number One - meeting Kyle Chandler at Sissy's soccer Game on April 1.  What? You didn't hear the story yet??  Here ya go.....
2. Sis turned 11 on April 5 and want to take a guess at what her favorite birthday present was?  A Liverpool jersey with her fav player's name on the back (can't remember his name b/c he has horrible buck teeth and that is all I can recall about him...). Anyways, this surpassed the purple bike that mom picked out...... grrrrrr.....
3. We had a fun slumber party to celebrate the big 11!  And all these girls were giddy (and blue) to be swimming the first week of April!
4. We took in a really cool art exhibit at the AMOA-Arthouse Art on the Green - 9 holes of putt-putt golf.  Each hole was a masterpiece! So cool!
5. My gorgeous family on Easter.  Yes, we like green......
6. Little Bubba LOVED hunting eggs....we did it over, and over , and over for weeks....
7. Every Wednesday has been date day with my little man, as we have only a few weeks until school is out and the big kids are home.  We have been exploring new parks and taking fun classes - it has been so fun!
8. Sis had her last soccer game and we took some fun pictures of the girls before the game.  Some of these girls have been playing together for the last 4 years and we are breaking apart this year (I guess moving into middle school doesn't help!).  Look at these adorable smiley faces!!!
9. Bubba was ready to move into a "big-boy" bed, but this momma was NOT smiling at the mess he has created each day at nap time.  This was Day One - he emptied every drawer in his dresser.  This week, he proceeded to fill his sink up with water and stop it with his blanket - what a mess! Yes, I have a monitor on in his room.  No, I don't hear him - he is silent.....
10.  The month ended with a quick visit with Uncle Brad - we took him to Brody's soccer game and dinner at Chuy's - it was great to catchup with Matt's brother as we don't get to see him or his family nearly enough.

I hope you had lots of things to smile about this month!  Take a few minutes to reflect on it - I'm guess you had way more than 10!!

Linking up with EmmyMom's Top Ten Things to Smile about Monthly meme - did I tell you I get to meet her tomorrow too???

Great set of pictures. It made me smile, so I guess that's one for May for me. Have a good weekend with the girls.

Love all the pictures. I giggle every time I see that picture of Bubba laying on top of his pile of stuff. Seriously, isn;t it amazing how quiet they can be... wish they would be when you are say on the phone or in a restaurant. LOL

Oh what a tricky little guy! And yes that is why I love the crib for as long as possible- for nap times. Love that picture of her soccer team, fun idea. Soccer ended today fr Lucas and one more week for Alex.
Great list! Thank you fr linking up and it was so great to meet you! You are even more beautiful in person.
