The Birthday Girl

Yesterday was Alyssa's 4th birthday! She had her first "friend" party at our house. It was such a fun crazy time to have all her little friends from her church class and two of her cousins at her party! I love my little "buggy" so much, she is such a good girl, and such a lovey.

What are you Thankful for??

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving again this year with our family and friends!! Each Thanksgiving as a family we like to take the time to talk about the things we are thankful for. Last week for our family night lesson we asked each of the girls to tell us one thing that they were thankful for. Here are a few of their responses: Melody said " I am thankful for my family, Alyssa said " I am thankful that we can eat our food and get healthy" , Ella said "I am thankful for books" and Emily said she was "thankful for her baby Olivia"

There is so much in this life that I am thankful for. Here are only a few! I am thankful for the sunshine, it makes me happy! I am thankful everyday for MY life, and for my health and for the good health of my girls. I am thankful for wonderful parents who love me and who taught me what was right, and who took time to play and have fun with our family. I am thankful for a wonderful husband who takes such good care of me and our girls, and who tries hard everyday to do what is right. I am thankful for the 3 best sisters in the WORLD! They are my best friends! Of course I am also grateful everyday to be a mom of the 5 greatest girls ever! They bring so much joy to my life! ( I know, I sound like mom, but its true!) My life has been greatly blessed!!
What are you thankful for??????

School Days


What a perfect cool crisp morning to start school. Everyone was very excited and a little nervous while getting ready for the big day this morning! I have to admit, I was a little sad to see them leave, no tears, just missing them. Alyssa was a bit more sad as you can tell from the picture of her and Ella. In the pictures, if you look closely Melody's face is red and her eyes are a little teary. Heres what happened. While getting out of the van the side door started closing and hit her on the head. She ended up with a pretty good bump on the top of her head. In between pictures she was crying! What a good sport to stand and smile anyway! Ella is starting 5th grade (SOO big) Emmy is in 3rd grade and Melody will be going ALL day in 1st grade. They are all growing up to quickly! Hope they all have a happy day! Can't wait to hear all about it!

Somewhere over the Rainbow
After a rainy dark storm we had on Saturday night, I was surprised when coming out of Wal-mart to see this colorful rainbow! (it was much brighter to see in person) What a treat! It made me feel so happy and really made my night. We really do live in a beautiful world!
