My beautiful niece went to her first prom

My sister in law did her hair it looks so pretty
Look at the back of her dress it's so pretty

Here she is with her date I think he should have gotten a hair cut

My sweet niece. 10 years ago she was my flower girl in my wedding now she is going to prom. Aunt Tammy is feeling old. I thought she was so pretty I just wanted to post.

What do you do when it's 92 outside?

You get out the Elmo sprinkler
You hook him up and turn on the water
And let the kids have fun
I was running through it too
Hannah showing off her new swimsuit
Joshua got cold so he was looking for a warm place to hide
Sissy to the rescue to help keep him warm
They had an idea let's clean out the toy bin
and make a boat and use the La Cross sticks as oars

And we have one happy little boy

Kindergarten Orientation

Rosefield has so many incoming kindergarteners they are hiring a 5th teacher
the kids sat at desks and colored while the teacher spoke to the parents
Joshua was drawing something for his teacher
He's gonna love school
His new outfit for orientation
Not sure what to expect
The list of kids in Joshuas class
Principal Hanna speaking to all parents & kids
Joshua's new teacher Mrs. Coronado

We started off in the cafeteria with cookies and lemonade and a quick intro from the principal Mr. Hanna. It was a nice night meeting the teacher and seeing all of the kids that will be in his class. There will be 25 kids. The teacher seems really nice and Joshua liked her. We got a list of supplies to start collecting and a sheet on how to rate where our kids are and where they should be entering kindergarten. I think I will be helping out in this class a lot. It was a fun night.

Church Picnic

Sharing dessert
Go Hannah!
cooling off Darrell
My little pirate
Today we had our first Calvary Chapel Surprise picnic and it was lots of fun. There was lots of food, games, homeade pie contest, face painting and lots of fellowship, oh yes we even had the paparazzi Shubin there. The kids had a great time Joshua got his face painted so he could be a pirate. He loved it and when he saw himself in the mirror he said "I am the cutest pirate I ever did see." He is a funny kid. After the picnic daddy had a softball game then we went to Red Robin for dinner, the waitress liked Joshua's pirate look so much she asked if she could take a picture of him.

My Happy Birthday

Beautiful Roses from my husband
Pretty flower from Teddy
A beautifully wrapped gift from Monica at the park
Amazing cupcakes Monica made (with a recipe from Erica) yummy!
I started my day at the park for a playday for Joshua and was quite surprised to find awesome cupcakes and a gift waiting for me along with lots of kids for Joshua to play with and moms for me to fellowship with. What a nice way to start my day. After park time Joshua and I went shopping then to pick up Hannah & more shopping, after we got home my doorbell rang and I opened it to Teddy & Mindy with my very pretty flowers in hand. How sweet and what a surprise. Then my wonderful husband came home with beautiful roses. I feel so blessed. Brian, the kids, and I went to the Elephant Bar for dinner and had a great meal followed by some very yummy Creme Brulee. (We tried to take pictures but my batteries died in the camera :( I was so sad) then my husband took me to the bible book store and he and the kids bought me some gifts. What a great night with my family they made me feel so loved. I had a great day full of surprises, emails, IM's and lots of phone calls. Thank you to everyone who made my birthday such a great day. I feel blessed beyond words.

We got to play at Dream Catcher Park last night as you can see the field is painted on some corky/rubber stuff. The girls had lots of fun playing and Joshua had lots of fun entertaining the other kids and the parents. We won our six straight game. Good job Crimson Tide.

Another Prayer Request

As many of you have probably seen on the news there is a cat-burglar in Surprise he has struck 6 times so far and the last three times have been in Copper Canyon Ranch where we live along with the Lyons family and the Harrell family. He is coming into homes in the middle of the night and leaving without anyone knowing he was there. This makes me very unerved and last night I didn't sleep much I kept getting up and looking out the window all night long. Please pray that he will be caught and that those of us who live here will be safe along with the others who live in Copper Canyon Ranch. Thank you for lifting us up in prayer.

Prayer Request

Family & Friends Next Wednesday April 16th @9:00am I will be having a CT Scan on my abdomen and Pelvis area to check my gallbladder and to check for diverticulitus. Please pray for wisdom for my doctor in a diagnosis and treatment. Please also pray for me for peace and to let the Lord calm my fears. I am a little nervous and scared but I do know that God is in control and I need to rest in that. I will let you all know the results as soon as I get them. Thank you for your prayers they are greatly appreciated.
