Such a busy weekend!!

Well, what a great and bust weekend we've had!! Jesse enjoyed every moment of the Italian Fest at our church this year. He got pretty high on the rock wall, but lost steam because he "had just no more energy"....

Jesse spend like 20 minutes on this hand propelled train that just wore him out!!

Before the Italian Fest, Jesse had a game and won 19-1. Go Tigers! I love this pic because you can see the ball just after Jesse hit it....great job Jess!

Jesse enjoying the new bird exhibit at the zoo. We purchased a bird feeding stick and they just perched on the stick and ate away! Lots coming up...promise to post again soon!!!

Busy Week!!

Well, anyone who know us knows we love nature and all the creatures that come with it .....well, maybe not Lance. Well, we've had a skink that lives in our garage for about 3 years now. He comes out whenever it's warm and sunny, and Claire wanted me to take a picture of here it is. I suppose we should give it a name??
Jesse was John Sevier, Tennessee's 1st Governor, in his 2nd Grade Tennessee History Pageant today at school! He looked great in his Revolutionary War- Era costume. He did a great job and spoke so loudly and clearly for everyone to hear!.Way to go Jesse. Great job!!!

Here's the kids the end of the performance, an Elvis impersonator made an appearance and sang 2 songs. The kids had a blast.....and the parents did too!!!!
Will post again soon.

Keeping up with Claire!!

Well, Claire received a brand new blinged out trike from Nana & PawPaw for her Birthday and has been tearing up the pavement ever since. She collects things along the way and puts them in her basket in the back!
Mom and I have been sorting through garage sale stuff, when lo and behold, Claire finds a place to rest! She spent lots of time in that basket today....she's not going to like it much when she finds out Grandma is selling it!!
Have a great rest of the week.....will post soon!!!

Happy #3 Claire!!!

Well, it's very hard to believe that out little Claire turned 3 yesterday!!! It was a little bittersweet...seeing how fast this time has flown...However, we were blessed to be surrounded by our family and friends on this day and it couldn't have been any better! Aside from a cake incident and the fact that Claire refused to sit still for any pictures, the day was great! Claire feels right at home at River City Gymnastics, which is where we held her party yesterday!
Claire walking the parallel bars with Coach Lindsey close by just in case!

Well, getting all the kids together for a group picture proved to be a more difficult task than anticipated, so this is as good as it gets! The coaches gave Claire a cute t shirt and medal for having her party at the gym....

This is what I like to call "The Cake Patrol!"
Thanks to everyone for being with Claire on her special day! We love you all! Promise to post real soon.....Jesse's got lots of fun school stuff ahead!Love, Gretchen
