We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.

Creed of Gold Premiere

A few weeks ago we went to Indiana for the world premiere of Daniel's movie Creed of Gold. It was a lot of fun, the movie and music were great :-) 
On our way downtown we passed so many beautiful houses!

There were also a lot of beautiful churches!
 The Indiana War Memorial was beautiful!

 Getting ready for the movie to start

 It was fun to see Megan!
 Mrs. Ray's cake was there, it was yum of course :-) 
 We were so glad Grandma came with us!
 The girls were so pretty in their dresses

 I lost my shoe at midnight, unfortunately, there was no prince charming around to pick it up for me so I had to put it back on myself :-)

 We enjoyed the gold that was on different tables...
 Too bad it wasn't real.

We had a fabulous trip and enjoyed spending the weekend with Grandma!

The Adventures of Being a Mommy!

Phebes and I got to be mommys this past week; we watched the Elie kids from Saturday afternoon to Tuesday night. The kids kept us on our toes but were also making us laugh constantly :-)
Every time we drove in the car Chloe wanted to sing. She also told me I was funny so we got along great:-) 
 We had macaroni for dinner one night, Michael said he did not like it but I told him he needed to eat some of it. A few minutes later he asked me if I knew what the word perseverance meant, I said yes and he said, "I'm persevering through eating this macaroni" :-)
 The kids were so excited for movie night!
 Watching Mark ride his four-wheeler
 I was cleaning up after dinner; when I walked out of the kitchen Michael was just standing there like this. It scared me so much that I screamed AND jumped... Michael just thought it was pretty funny.
 We had fun playing the piano and singing

 She will make such a wonderful mother someday :-)

 The kids love to take pictures :-)
 They also have the cutest smiles :-)

 Pancakes for breakfast!
Michael helped me make the pancakes, he did a great job!
They each had their inital, a heart, and a Mickey Mouse. Michael also asked me to make a giraffe which, due to my amazing artistic skills, turned out great! Unfortunately, it fell apart before I could get a picture of the masterpiece. :-/
Something is messed up with my browser right now so here are the rest of the pictures... It won't let me move them.
The rest of the movie night pictures...
Reagan is the best studdy buddy, ever!
I love her smile!
Phebes and I had a great time being a mommys and miss the kids SO much! If anyone knows of any kids that need a mommy, I'm available :-)

September 11

I cannot believe it had already been nine years since 9/11; I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when it was happening.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Memorial Day

For Memorial Day this year we all met at the park. Even though it rained we all had a fun time spending time together, eating, and playing football and baseball.

Rhiana is so beautiful, I love her eyes!

We all tried our batting abilities. Sharon decided to try as well, she did better than some of us. I won't mention who but the initals start with me.
Mom teaching Rhiana how to bat

Aunt Suzy definitely showed us all up with her batting skills. Uncle Monte got a little upset that his wife rocked so much at knocking his pitches outta the park :-)

I love spending time with my amazing family!
