Lost Tooth!

Ahlan has had an eventful week! She started kindergarten AND lost her first tooth! She came home from school yesterday and I saw that her tooth was practically falling out of her mouth. She had me pull it out and was so excited!

Here she is showing off her "hole". She told me she has a hole in her smile now!

Ashlan had me take a picture of her first tooth. She was so proud of herself!

1st Day of School! Yipee!!!!

Yesterday was the first day of school for ALL of my kiddos! Ashlan got into the all day kindergarten program, so she got to ride the bus with the other kids. Kayleigh and Cameron both decided they were too old for pictures at school. Ashlan told me to leave pretty much as soon as she got to the classroom. I thought I was going to have a little drama, as she does not really do well with changes. No tears, no drama. She told me I didn't need to say goodbye again, to just leave. Yeah!! I thought it was interesting to me how differently I looked at the kids in kindergarten. They all looked so small. When Kayleigh 1st went to kindergarten, I thought all the kids were so big! I guess that comes with the way I see the oldest and the youngest! I actually spent the day by myself! It was so very nice! I think I will get a lot of cards made this next month! No distractions, no arguing children, no stomping, no noise! AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Kayleigh Turns 11!

Wow! Kayleigh turned 11 yesterday. I can't believe how fast they grow up! It doesn't seem like she could be this old! We love Kayleigh and we are so proud of the person she is becoming. She was so happy that Grandma and Katelynn could be her for her birthday. Kayleigh had a slumber party with a couple girls from church. Katlynn, Jessica, Kayleigh, and Bailey all had a lot of fun. We made some fun totes Saturday morning as a goodie bag. Happy Birthday Kayleigh!!!

Grandma and Katelynn Came to Visit!

Road Trip to Reno

Mom , Sara, and I got a chance to go to my cousin, Jared's wedding. He got married in Reno on Friday. The three of us had a great time! On our way to Reno, we stopped at this Vista Point and took a couple of pictures. It was an amazingly beautiful drive. This is Mom and Sara.

Here's me and Mom!

At the wedding reception, we decided to get a picture of all the cousins who were there.from left to right:
Jared, Sara, Michael, Mindi, Liesl, Stefani, Tanya, Me, and Amy
We were happy that we were able to visit with them all. We haven't seen each other in a really long time, so it was good to catch up!
Congratulations to Jared and Stephanie Cook!

We'll miss you, Sara!!!!

Sara came to visit us before she moved to Miami, Florida. These are some pictures from her visit. Katelynn is the daughter of Steven's girlfriend, Sarena. She came up with My mom and Sara to visit. Sara left yesterday to start her new adventure in Miami. We will miss her, but we know she is going to have a great time!
