let summer begin...

With school winding down and the weather getting HOT, we had to get the kiddie pool out of the garage to cool off a little.  This looks like the beginning of a beautiful summer!

Talent Show 2010

Avalyn and her good friend Kaytlyn performed in the school talent show today!  They sang a duet of "You belong with me" by Taylor Swift.  We are sooo proud of them!  Great job girls!!!

ps. I can't get blogger to upload any of my videos! WTH!!! So, I'm going through facebook. Hopefully everyone can see the video, if you can't please let me know. I also updated Briley's ballet recital with a video, so check it out!

I have NEVER cooked a turkey before this one.  And I probably never would have if I hadn't gotten this one for free (thanks Amie)!  I have to say that I am pretty darn proud of myself.  Not only does it look tasty, but it actually was tasty. With a turkey this beautiful I had to go all out with potatoes made from actual potatoes and gravy made from the actual pan drippings and stuffing made from a box!  :)  And my kids liked it, so that's a bonus!  Maybe we will have to have Thanksgiving at our house this year, maybe?!

Happy Birthday, Babe!!!

The kids and I decided to surprise Daddy with some cupcakes during school on his birthday.  And some of his fellow teachers made him the birthday crown and sash.  Then after school we had the the van all packed and ready to head to Vegas! Where we got to celebrate with some hot-tubbing and homemade banana cream pie with Grammy and Granddad!

School Pictures

School picture time! I love updated pictures of my kids.  Too bad they are growing up sooo fast, that the pictures hardly seem updated for long.  Thanks Kathryn for taking pictures of my non-school-aged kids.  :)
