First Piano Recital

This is Olivia and her Piano teacher, Meggie.
Olivia had her first piano recital on Saturday! She played "Morning" frome Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite. She was pretty nervous, but played beautifully without any mistakes!

Here's Olivia playing her piece!!

A Fabulous Friday!

Friday was an exciting day in our home. Todd, Olivia and I went the Barbara Davis Center for a four HOUR pump training class. We have Olivia a hooked up, but are doing a trial run with her pump full of saline right now. We can't wait to get rid of shots and load her pump full of insulin!

And our new dining room set was delivered!!! It's so beautiful! It's so nice to have a real table and CHAIRS! Folding chairs are functional, but not very cute.

Marcella Anne Turns Three!

asked Marcella what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday a few weeks ago and she insisted on a chocolate bunny cake! Go figure, the little girl who won't go to sleep without her Bun-Bun, wanted a rabbit cake! So here it is-or was, I guess. The Jelly beans were actually Jello Beans!

This is at Grandma and Grandpa's house on Sunday when all the Aunts, Uncles and cousins around came to celebrate. Isn't she cute!?! I can't believe how much she's grown in the past few months.


Marcella was so excited to blow out the candles! As soon as the lights were turned off, she blew out all the candles with out any one singing Happy Birthday.


On our second time around, she was a little embarrassed to blow out the candles again, so needed a little bit of help from Dad.


Yum! My girls favorite part of birthdays, licking the candles!


On Marcella's real birthday, we had swimming lessons all evening long and I had my Relief Society Enrichment Activity that night. To celebrate we ate at McDonalds in between lessons! What else could a newly turned 3 year old want....she got to eat chicken nuggets and open presents from Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa Riley!


Barbie Thumbelina!!!


A new dress from Grandma!


Opening another present from the grandparents...


Oooohhhh, a puzzle! Everyone wants to see!


Marcella's favorite, Polly Pockets!

It was a great Third birthday!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy Birthday Marcella!! She's 3 today and is soooo excited that it's finally March. She keeps telling everyone she's going to be 3 in March!
I'm back Blogging....for today anyway. Life has been crazy for the Gagon family. I was in PA for my birthday in December and then again in February for my Mom's birthday. Then the end of February my grandmother passed away after battling cancer for a year and a half. So I was back in PA for that. All I feel like I've done for 2 months solid is laundry!!!
Here's Rylee Jo! She's 8 months now!! Not crawling, but tryin to scoot on her bum everywhere. Check out that scratch on her face! I put her to bed a couple of nights ago and she started fussing, then started screaming because she had clawed her face.


Audrey, Marcella and Rylee in there Irish Green!


Look how cute Audrey and Marcella are and how unhappy Rylee is. We gave her a button pin to play with and then she was fine.
