Diana got to see some of her favorite teachers- Mrs. Pappalardo from Kindergarten and Mrs. Martin who is her current teacher...we are so blessed
This magazine cover? No words
Saturday night was an awesome family night. We tried the new Ralphie's in Salem and it was great! (Thanks Papa and Gram for the gift card!) Classic Italian food....restaurant is very small but since we went early with the littles, we only had to wait 30 minutes. Everyone enjoyed their dinner...especially Pidge...check out the before and after pics I snagged....hysterical!
and who says I can't insert videos into my Friday Favorites post right?
How about Eva doing Twinkle Twinkle? Can you stand it?
and how about my cheer team getting pumped up before their last competition? LOVE
These little muffins placed third again...I was very proud!
