Mary’s 11th Birthday 

Mary had a great 11th Birthday celebration! She was so happy about getting her Birthday package from Mammaw and Paw Paw and Grammy and PawPaw came up for her Birthday that weekend. She was over joyed with all the special gifts she got and super thrilled to finally have Chacos!! Apparently these sandals are the “in thing”! Happy Birthday Mary!!!


Finding Her Magic

“You can find MAGIC wherever you look. Sit back, relax, all you need is a book.”-Dr. Seuss

 Gayley happily “read” for over 30 minutes. She LOVES to read and it makes my heart happy to see that! She loves looking and pointing and talking all about them. She definetly already has her own favorites, the ones with kitties and any other baby animals!
“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents”-Emilie Buchwald


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll GO!”-Dr. Seuss


“A book is a gift you can open again and again”-Garrison Keillor


The Future Is Here!

Great Scott!!!  Back To The Future Day finally arrived!!

From my childhood in “Back To The Future part II”, Marty McFly travels to October 21, 2015 , to save his children yet to be born in “Back To The Future’s” 1985. Such a great movie!! I certainly would have never guessed I would be married with 7 children with the oldest being a Senior in High School and our youngest barely one years old on October 21, 2015!  So glad God knows our future. I think he does a mighty fine job!  IMG_4445
Now let’s  strap on our power-lacing shoes and grab a hover board, make like a tree and get out of here!




We’ve Been Booed!

  Joseph came in with this festive find and all were thrilled to dig through it sharing the candy bags and goodies. Besides candy there was a small foam ball, pretzels, cookies, glow sticks and bracelet, silly straws and a solar dancing jack-o-lantern! Oh what fun to be Booed!!!

Another New Driver

  It’s official, Morgan is a licensed driver! After a nearly 6 hour wait (arriving at 7:30 a.m.) at our DMV he passed on his first try! Way to go Morgan on your accomplishment, so proud of you!!!
