I am so excited that I could.... an entire bushel of onions (if you know me I have a self-proclaimed allergy to onions..I hate them)...

ANYWAYS---Why am I sooooooooooooooooooooooo excited? I am soooooooooooo glad that you asked?


Clayton and Amanda are expecting their first baby, my first niece or nephew, Kinzie and Jackson's first cousin. I am so excited -finally more babies in the family!!
Anywho-sorry if you thought it would be more exciting news(like maybe I was pregnant), but it is definitely an answer to prayers!

Have a great one and just smile!

The Kids and I attend ACA and we love every minute and every day we are there! I am teaching 15 four year olds this year and just let me say "I LOVE IT!!!!" So far this has been the best year at ACA!! My little class is hilarious and they think I'm cool!! What more could you ask for!!

The kids' teachers are wonderful Christian women who I have grown to love and admire. They have a special place in their hearts for children and my children love them dearly!

Happy Back To School Friends!!!!

My BABY is 5!!!

Yes can you believe that Kinzie is 5!!! It really does seem like yesterday that Adam and I were bringing her home from the hospital! Time sure does fly!! We celebrated this momentous occasion with a party at Pump It Up(it's really fun if you say that 3x's like your an announcer-just ask Chris P.). We decided that we would invite Kinzie's preschool class and have a little reunion. I think there were over 40 kids and adults there! It was a blast! Here are some pictures of friends.... Kinzie and her castle cake

J-man found this party favor and let everyone know the party had started.
Kinzie's first love Jacob and family got to come. It was great to see them again.
I think Jackson had the most fun of all of us. He slid down the inflatable slide at least 100x's.

Birthday Girl

She is taking after mom and learning to bake early. Thanks Lolo and Aubrey for the Easy Bake. We (I mean, Kinzie) loves it!

It was a great way to celebrate Kinzie turning 5! Thanks to all of the family and friends who came to play and wish Kinzie Happy Birthday! I Love You-Kinz

Around the World and Back!!

We had a wonderful time traveling to Arizona a couple of weeks ago! Our days were filled with hiking, hopping rocks, rainbow trout fishing, deer feeding, slide rock swimming, and being sprayed by a skunk(well not us personally, but rather the cabin we were staying in)!!! Fun, fun, fun!! Here are a few pictures of our trip!--I forgot my camera charger(I know Ricky-I have issues with my camera)so these are the few pictures we squeezed in before it died!

We stayed the night in New Mexico and got up early to ride the TramWay before heading to Arizona

This is a view from the Tram
In Arizona we stayed in Oak Canyon and on our way down to the Canyon it was raining, as we traveled to the cabin it stopped and a double rainbow appeared.
This is the best shot we could get of us and the entire Cabin! It was nice and cool!
We spend one day at a Deer farm and fed the deer! It was really fun! Jackson looks like he is scared of the deer, but he really treated them like they were his dog Mollie

Vacation is over and now it is back to work!!
