Swagger

In an effort to allow the children to dress up and not actually dress for Halloween the teachers have come up with a creative alternative. Today Joseph dressed up as a Vocabulary word. The only rule was they had to have the word and definition on their back. He oozes this Vocab word!!!!

Birthday Girl!

Mary had a marvelous 9th Birthday with so many people who love her. After getting her Birthday ears piercing we headed to Dairy Queen where the party was waiting for the Birthday Girl to arrive. She was all smiles as she showed off her new lovely butterfly earrings.

What $140 in Pledges Gets You. . .

Jordan came home with his prize loot he earned for getting $140 in Fun Run pledges. So what does $140 get ya? A crazy spike rubber wig, 2 wrist bands, an amazing pen that also writes invisible and a Boosterthon XL soft Frisbee!  I’m thinking  cost was only $3.20 max so Jordan was a really good little fundraiser for the schools new playground.

Piercing Joy

image

The day this little girl has been asking for finally came true. . . She got her ears pierced!!!!

image

With her best friend by her side squeezing her hand with a death grip  holding her hand.

image

She was all nervous excited and giddy with laughter after each ear was pierced. No tears, well maybe some tears of joy!!!

image

She now has her pink birthstone butterflies in her ears along with a matching pink necklace. Oh what joy!!!

A Birthday memory she’ll never forget.

Joseph and Jordan ran their tails off at the Fun Run today to raise money for their new schools playground. The schools goal was around $53,000 and they reached their goal plus some!

Banana Boy

This morning Hans went out on the porch and climbed up to the picnic table to eat his banana all by himself. He was quite a chatter box talking to the dogs then stopping to eat then telling me things pointing at the dogs then taking more bites.

Throw Back Thursday

This is from October 2010 when my cousin Scott and his family came to pick out one of Lulu’s puppies as their new puppy.  They picked a sweet girl and named her Lady Bird! It was fun seeing all the second cousins together, we sure do have our own litter!!66255_1462850898323_1959786_n
