Huge excitement about wearing lipstick

Kids put 18 kisses on a card for Brian to celebrate 18 years since Bethany & Brian started dating

Happy bday Brian!

It was a Star Wars-themed bday, including Star Wars hat, PJs, & ice cube trays, and Haven made a book for Brian full of pictures of her dressed up as Star Wars characters.

Sleepover party

 It has been fun to see the kids' taste in music develop - for the dance party (with flashlight strobe lights of course), the kids selected Shake it off, Fight song, Shut up & dance, and Firework 

Hollymead School's Robin Aldridge Memorial Fun Run

 Joni, Ava & Lily ran 2 miles with Brian, and Haven & Bethany did the full course. Congrats to Joni for her longest ever run!
 Haven with her great new teacher Ms. Hersman
 Wonderful event and dedication ceremony to honor a Hollymead teacher who passed away last year.

On the go

Girls are both doing gymnastics & Joni has started soccer

Amazon delivers good & evil

Disney prince & princess dolls & Haven's Halloween Darth Vader costume both arrived - you decide which represents good & which evil...

Now that's a welcome

Girls were very excited that their old babysitter Rebecca was coming for a visit so decided the best welcome would be to torture her with her least favorite song...

Do you speak Haven language?

Haven likes to make up new words…

Nervoucited = nervous + excited (used to explain the feeling before a dance recital or first day of school)

Grinky = stinky + gross (used when she catches Bethany & Brian kissing!)

Haven & Bethany run the Breast Cancer 4-miler!

Thanks to everyone who sponsored us, and Brian & Joni for volunteering (of course, Joni chose to help at the donut station)!
