Baby Sam

Yay!! I have a picture of our gorgeous baby Sam. I haven't seen Kristy's baby yet and have been bugging her to send me recent pics. Here is one she just sent me. Isn't he adorable?

Homecoming in Kansas

These are pictures Sara sent of Mitch's Homecoming. It is so weird seeing our youngest kids grown up!!!

Alex told me I haven't lived up to my statement that I am going to write about meeting John. I am going to, but it is so not a story like Pioneer Woman's. I can probably do it in one short post. ha

My anniversary is coming up. Should I start the story of John and me dating? Someone else is making me think I should write my story. ha

I might be able to find good pictures too. ha

Took Some Pictures This Weekend!!

I took a few senior pics of Alex....

And I took a few of the baby girls. We will see if Ashley and I pick the same pictures to post.

Christmas In September

Some of you may remember Christmas Dani's graduating year, I told of the deal we made with our children when they were little. We told them that if they graduated with a 4.0 (or close to it) and stayed out of trouble then we would make sure they had a car when they went to college. We made this deal hoping it would give them something to use to prevent peer pressure when it came to certain activities high schoolers may get into. We also were hoping it would mean scholarships and therefore could afford a car payment since we wouldn't have to be paying full tuition for college.

Well, Alex has done great and does have that GPA, as well has stayed out of trouble. We knew we couldn't surprise her at Christmas as she has kind of been expecting it. So, we went out this weekend and found a car she really wanted, with all the things she was hoping for and a deal we couldn't pass on and voila, Christmas in September. She knows her Christmas will be small and I imagine we will be wrapping that car brochure in a box, just to remind her at Christmas about her early present.

Here it is...... it is a Mitsubishi Lancer. It is rated one of the safest cars in its class. Happily, it has front, side, and knee air bags. She is more excited about the sun roof and spoiler. ha

Congratulations Alex, on your GPA, scholarship that is coming, and of course on earning your car. You have made us proud!!
