As I have mentioned before I am a season ticket holder at Gammage. When I go once a month the Girls are always so excited/jealous. They ask for details of the show and dream about going. This season Beauty and the Beast was coming and they were wishing and hoping they could go. Kimberly even [...]
This year for April fools I was subbing so I was not able to spend a lot of time creating something fabulous for April Fools day. I had to resort to some easier things that were just as much fun. I switched the sugar bowl with salt and offered the kids hot tea with dinner. [...]
Our kids are getting so big but they still enjoy a simple egg hunt or two. The kids looked adorable as always. We had a nice day at home. Grammy, Jake, Joey and Wyatt came over for dinner. Annie folded the napkins into bunny faces while the other girls made place cards for the table.
The kids always love going to the GoDaddy family picnic and this year was no different. Because it was on the day before Easter they did an Easter egg hunt. The kids had fun searching for the eggs. They each were able to pick a snack. Daddy got to hold all their treasures while they [...]
Kimberly’s art was featured once again in the District Art Festival. She worked hard on her pointillism piece by her upper arm. She didn’t win an extra award at the show but she was proud she was selected to be in the show.
In this busy life we lead it is easy to get burdened down with lots of different thoughts and situations. Some days it seems as though everything that can go wrong is and the people around you are only there to cause you trouble. In general I am optimistic. I like to believe that people’s [...]
The kids had a sock hop at school. I thought they could wear jeans and white shirts but they had other ideas. I hesitantly made three poodle skirts the night before the sock hop. Thankfully I found this no sew poodle skirt tutorial and my Mother was there to help get the project started. This [...]
Kimberly has always been a natural leader. She loves taking control of a situation and making it work how she wants. It was no surprise to me when she was able to choose a reward in her class that she picked reading to another class. Because her Brother is in kindergarten she wanted to read [...]
Annie and Kimberly had a synchronized swimming meet over the weekend. They both were competing in the intermediate category and it was a huge meet with kids from all over Arizona. Kimberly received the 6th place medal for her efforts and Annie received nothing. We are proud of both of them.
Kimberly is doing well. There are still issues with her stomach and her bedwetting but we are following up with the GI later this month so hopefully we will be able to help her out. She is in the 15th percentile for weight and height. She measures in exactly at 4 foot 1 inches and [...]
Annie and Kimberly had their first meet this weekend. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect but the girls did well. We had to be up quite early to make the 7:30 check in time for Annie. The pool we were competing at was 45 minutes away and I was greatful there wasn’t much traffic [...]
We carved our pumpkins the day before Halloween. With our busy schedule it was a mad dash to clean them and carve them but we got the job done. The kids always love getting dirty and scooping out the goo. This year was no exception. Kimberly wanted a cyclops. Annie wanted her pumpkin carved into [...]

I love watching my kids grown up. I love watching them make life choices and big decisions. They are all so unique and special. Kimberly turns 9 tomorrow and Annie in 13 days. Simple math tells you that 9 is 1/2 of 18. Did you read that? Half way to 18. Did you know that [...]
Kimberly had her 9th birthday party last night. She chose the theme of artist party. She helped plan out everything. She had canvas painting. Each child created their own canvas. They designed it and painted it using acrylic paints. They all turned out so nice. They decorated cupcakes with fondant, icing and sprinkles. This was [...]
This year we decided to allow the children to do more sports. We have taken complete breaks and have had much success at just allowing our children to be children. However, they were really pushing to do things. Kimberly is determined that she is going to be an olympic swimmer and Madeline wants to dance, [...]
Annie and Kimberly have finally settled into third grade. The transition from second to third grade is never easy. You go from breezy days of addition and subtraction to multiplications, fractions and division. No longer do the papers have happy faces on them they have hard scores with percentages and averages. I remember when I [...]
The kids were invited to a birthday party at an indoor swimming pool. They were so excited since they had only been to an indoor pool once at a hotel in Seattle. They had such fun hanging out and playing with their friends. Even though Annie and Kimberly had already swam for 3 hours that [...]
Our kids love swimming. They want to spend all their time in the pool and have become such great swimmers. Kimberly is bound and determined to be an olympic swimmer. She loves to race and is super fast. She really wanted to be on a swim team but a quick google search revealed that there [...]
The kids are adjusting well to being back in school. Paul just loves kindergarten and even though he is EXHAUSTED when he comes home he loves going and it is no surprise that his favorite subject is recess. Madeline is enjoying second grade. She is just cruising along waiting for it to get challenging. Annie [...]« Previous Entries
