Putting Around

We took the children miniature golfing today, and they had a really good time. This was Amelia's first time, and after a few quick lessons, she loved it!

I was surprised that Anna stayed interested the entire game! Since we took the Water Course we had many water traps, that the children loved!

This is Megan telling us how pathetic she is :)

This is the only shot we got of Zachary...

Super Heroes to the Rescue!!

Today was Super Hero Day at school, and the children had so much fun creating their costumes and Hero Profiles!

"Lightning Boy!" is known for his Super Speed! He is never without his deadly lightning bolts, which when thrown sends bolts of electricity into the air! This hero is well liked and his charming ways allow him to negotiate with the most stubborn villain!

"Girly Girl" is known for her girly ways and instincts! She has a shopping bag full of secret weapons...including: Lipstick, which looks innocent, but can produce deadly darts; a Hair Dryer, which has a super wind feature, that can blow you onto another planet; Ribbon, which is as strong as steel and can whip any Super Villain into place; Perfume, easily disguised as a powerful poison spray; Hair Brush, which shoots out laser beams and fries you to a crisp; Nail Polish, when applied can tickle out the darkest evil secret! This hero may look cute and dainty, but bad guys beware!

"Super Girl" aka: "Girly Girl's Sidekick" (she couldn't make up her mind!) is known for her super strength and beauty! This hero has the ability to stare you down with her ice cold eyes and freeze you instantly! She is also sneaky and quiet, and if you aren't watching closely than your valuables might disappear, never to be seen again!! :)

HOT Weekend at Disney!

Last weekend we went to CA for Brian's cousin's wedding, and since we were so close to Disney, we of course took a full day and played! We took Megan and Zachary and left the little girls home with Grandpa. Next year we plan on taking the whole crew, but for one day from 9AM to 11PM, we knew the girls would never last! It proved to be a very good choice! :) The weather was extremely the 100's!! We loaded up on sunscreen and had a great time! :)

This is a group shot...In the front: Brian's older sister, one of Brian's younger sisters with her son, and me. In the back: Megan, older sister's daughter, Zachary and Brian. This was in the evening when the day started cooling down.

Happy Mother's Day!

I've been very blessed to have 2 wonderful mothers! My mother Lorrie, was called home to our Father in Heaven when I was 11, and in that same year the Lord blessed our family with my mother Judie, who has cared for us and loved us as if we were her own :) I will always be grateful for such elect ladies in my life!

I have many happy childhood memories with my Lorrie-mom. I look forward to the day when we will see each other again and share our happy experiences together. I know that she watches over us now, just as any mother would. Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mom!

This photo was taken on the day that my parents, George and Judie were married. My sister, Amber wasn't in the photo, and obviously Damon wasn't born yet. This was the beginning of my Judie-mom's courageous journey to blend two families....they did a wonderful job and for that, I am eternally grateful to my mom! Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mom!

Mother's Day Luncheon :)

Anna has been talking about the Mother's Day Luncheon for weeks! She was so excited to have me come to her school today. She made a beautiful hat (that I wasn't currently wearing), a placemat, a beautiful vase with flowers and a card. They served us lunch and cake and we both had a great time. (Tomorrow will be repeated with Zachary)

Just in case things don't work out with Brian...

Take the Quiz

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

We hope you are having a wonderful Cinco De Mayo! This picture was taken years ago when I was little. I'm the one trying to hit the pinata (you can see the back of my head). My Uncle Steve is holding the pinata; next to him is a family friend; next to him is my Aunt Jill; next to her is my Aunt Suzy; and next to her is another family friend. I have a better picture of us children dressed in our beautiful clothes, but I can't find it, so this will have to do for now :)
