Northern Bound

We are looking forward to a trip North! We leave Friday morning ( I just noticed the time, so I guess we are leaving this morning) and plan to come home on Memorial Day. We are making a stop in Virginia Friday to marry off David's brother, then we will head on to PA! So I will not be posting on here for awhile.
Amber had her last day of school, YEA! I think she is glad for the break, but she knows she will miss her friends. As for me, I am sooo glad to be finished with that daily trip!

Tonight was Amber's School Program/Awards Banquet (Amber is in about the middle of the front row with the teal colored shirt)

This is the first grade class getting their awards from their teacher.

Amber is going to miss having Mrs. Mast for her teacher. She did and excellent job bringing Amber a looong way in her learning as it came hard for Amber.

Waiting to see who won student of the year award, and some other awards.

I took the three youngest kiddos for a wagon ride the other evening, it was Treyton's first one and he loved it, so dutiful Jenny gave him another one.

I mentioned before about going to the coupon seminar. Well, I am giving this money saving/time consuming thing a try. It has also become a new craze for Jenny too, she sat the other afternoon and cut all the pictures out of the sales flier, they were her "coupons"

Finally, a first hair-cut!

The girls took it upon themselves to pluck off all the dead blooms on my flowers, I was surprised how they stuck to it and actually removed them all!

"Art class" (:

The girls dug their bubbles out the other evening,

Treyton thought they were fun.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to our Mothers! We love you!

A Precious Mother
Mom You've given me so much,
Love from your heart
and the warmth of your touch.
The gift of life and you're a friend to me.
We have a very Special Bond
which only comes from God...
I'm sure you agree.
As a child I would say Mommy I Love You,
Now you're my Mother so dear
I love you even more
with each and every new year.
If I could had chosen,
I would have picked no other.
Than for be my lifelong friend
and Precious Mother.

Picture Day

These are my "brag" pictures! (:
We took the chance on Saturday to take Treyton's 1 year pictures, (yes I know his birthday was over a month ago). We went to a gardens in town to take them.
These are the un-edited pictures, but I knew Aunt Lynette was waiting for them to be posted, so I did not take time.(:

Treyton was not so sure at first about this new place. As you can see, he has a fat lip. Of course when picture day is scheduled for the next day, his one sister has to drop him on his face the night before! (:

Happy Birthday David

This past Saturday was David's ? birthday. He has been very busy at work, including on Saturday's, so I took supper to the shop Friday night and helped paint a shed so he could take off on Saturday.

Cake just does not get eaten fast at our house, so I made his favorite dessert instead and left the girls decorate the top of it.

Last week I surprised the girls by setting their pool up. I was too glad to have them being entertained, that I lost track of time. They all ended up with pretty bad sunburn. I felt really bad!

I did this to show David that I think it is time for a haircut! (:
