Happy Anniversary/Mother's Day...all in one!!

Well, this year we put together a new hard topped gazebo for the little back yard deck....Despite it taking several cool rainy weekends to get it done, it's all done! Lance & his dad even installed electricity to it complete with weather proof LED lighting and a fan!  Looks like the perfect place for a nap to me! I love it all, and I even have speakers out there!

I have a few more pillows and things I'd like to "bling" it out with, but I'm not going to ask Lance for a singe new thing...just yet

SFA Father/Daughter Dance 2017

Well, another wonderful St. Francis Father Daughter Dance has gone by and a blast was had by all!  This year it was packed, and their were drawings, dace offs, dance contests, and lots of yummy drinks and desserts!  Lance and Claire met a few other friends and their dads at Shogun, and then all proceeded to the dance together! I hope she never outgrows this!!!

Claire turns 11...and other fun!!!!

 Well, today our Claire turns eleven!  I just can not believe this, but I guess it's true.... being that it's the middle of a school week, she won't have her party until Friday...but we celebrated tonight with dinner with family!

 Her favorite breakfast breakfast of all!  Crepes!  And who doesn't love a good glass of white grape juice in a wine glass!

Claire got to see her cheer squad girls perform in SFA"s Beauty and The Beast!  It was fantastic!

Happy Birthday Sweet Claire!!! You are going to rock 11!!!

An absolute whirlwind of a week!!!!!

 Well, we've been slammed with Spring Fun around here and loving every minute.  Claire went on her first overnight field trip with the 5th grade to Victory Ranch and boy it did not disappoint. Above is a few of the kids who apparently spent an hour playing on this big drain thing.  Out of all the equipment, etc to play with , they decided to stop for a quick pic on this!  I was asked to attend as the nurse (not the mom) on this trip and just loved it!  Enjoy the video...I stepped out f my comfort zone for that one!

 Claire loving the bunk beds!
 The evening before Victory Ranch we went to see The Sound Of Music Musical at The Orpheum and of course we sang along throughout the entire thing!!!! Thanks Uncle Tommy for the tickets!

 And of course last week we were in Jackson, MS for the Annual reunions and activities!
 Ready to hunt some eggs!!
A very tired Jesse and Claire waking up this year at Aunt Sandy & Uncle Mike's House on Easter Sunday! Thanks Aunt Sandy & Uncle Mike for your hospitality!!!

Jesse's Family 16th Birthday Party!

 Well, we celebrated Jesse's 16th Birthday here with all our family on a perfect Saturday evening! A blast was had by all! Jesse is so fortunate to be so loved by so many!

 The chipping contest was a hit!  Everyone got 3 chances and Jesse ended up winning the whole thing....he deferred his GC to cousin Lindsay, who manage to almost wearing heels at the same time!!!
 Cousin Matthew hit it over about 2 fences!
 At least she looked cute doing it!

 How cute is that!?

 Lovely Family!

We are so proud of the young man Jesse is turning out to be, and can't wait to see what comes of this one! We love you Jesse! Happy Birthday!
