Simply Six

Xochitl has turned six! After such an overwhelming March, we decided (well, Mom decided...) that simple would be best for her birthday. 

In the morning, she got to open family presents, including a home made blanket for Olivia made by Dawna, new Sunday shoes, an R2-D2 water bottle, and a pony for Olivia. Then, I brought Krispy Kreme doughnuts for her kindergarten class at snack recess and returned with Chipotle for her lunch. 

Since it was piano lesson day, off we went to Nana's house after school as usual.  Nana had prepared classic fun party games and dinner as requested by Naomi: hamburgers and French fries.
 Jon got to join us for the fun and brought a super special gift for her: a hot pink chalk bag for climbing. It was exactly what she had asked for and was tickled beyond words to have her own chalk bag!!
 For a little celebration with friends, we decided to do a dinner and a movie night at out house. Pizza, popcorn, and pals all night! Xochitl asked for a "Whale Watermelon" for her cake... ok... Those are always lots of fun to make... and way better than cake, in my opinion!
The kids sort of watched, but mostly the Lego Movie was going on in the background while the kids ate dinner, played Legos, and played outside. It was a fun, relaxing way to celebrate six!

Naomi is starting her sixth year wonderfully. She is a capable, confident, and caring kindergarten girl. She loves her gymnastics class and loves to go climbing. Independent and strong-willed (in mostly a good way...), and just beautiful in every way!

We love that girl!!! She is so fun, sweet, and wonderful. Never heard of a girl that age wanting a chalk bag!! So neat that Jon can get his whole family into his hobbies.
