Happy 8th Birthday Michael!


I can't believe it's been 8 years!! On Monday, Michael turned 8 years old so we had planned on taking all the kids to Disneyland. Unfortunately, Robert came down with a high fever the night before so he was unable to go with us. Ed and I took Michael and Sammie and we had a great time even though we all missed Robert. As you can see in the pictures Michael hammed it up all day, he's a crack up!! We are so thankful for the blessing Michael is, he is such a gift from God. We love you Michael!!

California Gold Rush

Sammie's 4th grade class studied the California Gold Rush in school this week. They celebrated the end of the week with a old fashion Hoe Down. It was so much fun we all got to join in the dancing at the end of the performance. Here's a video of one of the square dances they learned. Sammie is in the brown skirt and vest, her hair is in a pony tail.

Fun filled day!

This morning we started off at Samantha's talent show. She has been singing in the Talent show every year since 1st grade. Sam has a beautiful voice and is such an enjoyment to listen to. This year Sammie sang with two of her friends and they did a great job!! Here is a picture of Brianna, Rebecka and Samantha. Both Michael and Robert had games today, and they did great!! These are the best of times!! We finished the day celebrating Granny's Birthday, which is actually tomorrow. Here's a video of her opening up her gift from John, Sue, Ed, me and all the grand kids. video
Ed's mom is such a blessing to me and I really lucked out with having the best Mother-in-Law in the whole world!!

Cleaning fun!!

Today has been very productive day. Cleaned the kitchen, finished the laundry then started to put it all away. Usually, Ed puts all his laundry away but today I thought I'd do it for him. Then it hit me, no really it hit me, when it all comes a tumbling down. This is why my poor Ed can't find anything in his closet, it's because of this... I decided it was time to attack this beast and tame it. My sweet husband has so much on his plate with providing for our family that it's silly of me to make him put his laundry away. So, hopefully my little chore will make his life a little bit easier.

Twilight Addict

Well I have to confess that I truly have an addiction to the Twilight Series. I know, I know, it's the craziest thing. For the last year all I kept hearing is how great the Twilight books are. I really had no interest in reading about vampires and were wolfs personally it sounded repulsive. Seriously, who wants to waste time on such nonsense! As a side note, I run the Book fair at our school and the Twilight Saga was at our fair. I was talking to people about these books because I didn't understand what the big deal was with them. One of my friends said just read them and let me borrow her four books. Let me tell you, I could not put them down! I read them all in two weeks. I then decided that I had to have my own copy - thanks Amazon! I have reread them and they are going to Yellowstone with us this summer - CRAZY, I know.

An apple a day.....

Okay, so I've not blogged or read blogs in a while because I have been sicker than a dog. (Where does that expression come from?) I'm feeling much better obviously, so I thought I'd check back into blogland. Hello everyone!! Today, was a beautiful day, 85 degrees a perfect day for Sammie's first ever golf lesson. She has been wanting to learn for a long time so this was very fun!! She is attending a Jr. Golf Academy at one of our local golf courses and she loved it!!Before I was down for the count I took some pics of Michael and Ed (kind of) at one of Michael's game. Ed is adjusting Michael's catching gear - cute!
Doesn't Michael look cool as a catcher, he loves that position.

Robert is doing GREAT with his two teams, people are starting to call me Robert's mom rather than Sandy - hmmmm. Robert has a tournament coming up this weekend with his travel ball team which will be a blast. I'll post pictures!
