Sammy's Kindergarten Graduation

Sammy's Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Davis, had a little graduation for her class at the end of the school year. She was such a great teacher! We absolutely love her!

Sammy and her BFF Chloe! Such cute girls!

I wish I had more pictures of this, but our camera was acting up at the time. :0( Oh well, that just how life goes...

Happy Birthday, Boys!

In April, JR turned 9 and Brendan turned 3. It is so hard to believe that they are getting so big! Where has the time gone?!!!

JR is such a great kid! He has no problem sharing his big day with his little brother!

They chose Toy Story 3 for their cakes this year, and I think they turned out pretty darn cute!

I am so grateful that I have such wonderful children. They bring such joy to my life! Love you boys!

Sammy's Birthday

Samantha turned 6 in February. It is so hard to believe that she is getting so big! She is a huge help to us and always has a way of making us smile! We love her so much!

Here are a few pictures of her birthday party.

Here is a video of her on her birthday. I love the way she talks! It makes me smile!

Karate Belt Advancements

Wow! I REALLY have been slacking on blogging this year!!! I cannot believe it is already the end of August. Where has the year gone?!

Now that school is back in session, and I only have Brendan at home, I should have a little more time to get things done around here. Catching up the blog is at the top of the list! So here we go...

The kids all earned their next belt levels in January. Sammy was soooo excited about getting her blue belt!

Christian received his 2nd Degree brown belt, and JR got his 3rd Degree brown belt.

This is a group shot of their whole class.

Christmas 2010

Wow, Christmas came and went so quickly! I can't believe it has been almost two months! I have been such a slacker with my blogging!

Here are a few pictures and some video we took of the kids on Christmas morning.

Yesterday, we got DUMPED on! We got over 12 inches overnight! It was a mess!!! Our school district hasn't had a Snow Day in years, but they decided to make it a half-day and let the parents decide whether or not to send their kids. We needed help to dig ourselves out of the driveway, so we kept them home! Ha ha ha! They pretty much spent the whole day out in the snow, either shoveling driveways in the neighborhood or digging trenches for snowball fights! They had a blast!

Sammy begged and begged me to help her build a snowman. So, when it became clear that she wasn't going to let up, I helped her build one. The snow was perfect for it!

Brendan absolutely LOVES to play in the snow. After about an hour of jumping in it and almost becoming an icesicle, he screamed when I brought him inside! I even tried to bribe him with cookies and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (two of his favorite things) and it still didn't help! Oh, well, he's all boy I guess!
