Kindergarten Concert

My little Gretchko Star had her Kindergarten concert.  She was a fabulous penguin, front and center...and remembered all her penguin moves.  Great singing, Allie!

Love on Valentine's Day

Love filled our house this past weekend as Todd and I prepared something special for our two little loves.  We got out our Valentine plates to have lunch and treats on. 

Love of lovely goodies...new shoes, crafts, card making supplies, and a Lego bin for her Lego table for Allie.  Ayden rocked his new hat and baseball mitt and glove.

We made (the littles actually helped too!) their Valentine's' for all their friends at school.  Everyone's a CUTIE this year.

Today, Nana got to take Ayden to school for his Valentine party (it fell on a Tuesday, Nana's day).  He played games, passed out his Valentine's and have some yummy treats too.

Lucky for me I got to come to bit of Allie's Valentine party at school.  Allie and I have so much fun posing for pictures in the photo booth, making a heart thumb-print bookmark and eating yummy snacks too!

Allie's Class on Valentine's Day!

Love these two with all my heart!

My super star reader completed reading the 2017 Pinecone books!!  Allie read (or was read to) 30 books and completed a book report on each!  Way to go on smashing that goal!


WE did it!  WE read all 30 Pinecone books for the school's reading program.  Go US!  This was a joint effort...of course!  But WE are so proud!

Bitty Bombs at Great Wolf

Having a cheer competition at Kalahari, gives us a GREAT reason to take a day off and enjoy the waterpark.  The Hammerick's ALL took a family day and headed to Great Wolf Lodge early on Friday so we could make the most of our trip.  The kiddos enjoyed splashing, swimming, sliding and soaking at Great Wolf's waterpark all day Friday.  Allie was thrilled she was tall enough to ride on ALL the slides by herself and Ayden was brave enough to try them out with Mom and Dad...he could ride on a lot of little ones on his own.  The family favorite HAD to have been the big hot tub (it gets pretty cold going down those slides.  Story time with Violet and Brinkly were a hit too.


On Saturday, Allie competed for the first time this season.  Those Bitties were the cutest thing ever on the floor.  Sparkles and smiles all around.  They did pretty well for their first competition...a little work still to do before the next. 


They took 2nd place...not too bad.  Proud parents!!!
