First Day of School

Serra is really excited to be going to kindergarten.  She did very well in preschool, so we're all excited to see her excel in a new environment.  I thought I would be emotional seeing her go off on her first day, but I was nothing but excited- for her, for me, for Alex.  Alex misses her, but he loves the time with Mommy!

Five Years

The last five years have been a roller-coaster ride.  And we are so thankful for the reason: Serra!  She loved her My Little Pony party [and so did her friends].
 It was a sleepover party for 2 of her friends- the first time she's had more than 1 friend sleep over at once!  And we had colored pancakes for breakfast, which was a hit!]
She also got a gift card for ToysRUs from Grandma and LOVED walking the store trying to choose what to buy [she finally settled on a Lego set and a Tinkerbell watch]!
We spoiled her further by introducing her to Chuck E. Cheese!
 [Alex did NOT like the mascot... in fact he was terried and trying to climb up my legs to get away from him!]

Serra has brought so much happiness to our lives that it's easy to forget the stress, tears and hard work that comes with it!  I can't believe what a smart and beautiful young girl she is becoming- even though she reminds me of it every day.  While I hope that the next 5 years are not so dramatic, I'll take whatever we get just to have her in our lives!  We love you, Serra, and hope you had a great birthday!!!
