Thirty Years Ago Today

Our big baby boy came into this world, he weighed in at nine pounds two ounces and was such a sweet baby, very happy and the apple of his Daddy’s eye, he is still that sweetheart of a guy and his Daddy’s best buddy! Happy Birthday Davey!

First time ever I see your face… Dave holding Davey for the first time.

Teacher Appreciation

This week has been filled with crafting fun for me. I love making personalized gifts for the teachers in our little one’s lives. I am so appreciative that they have chosen to follow the teaching path in their lives and make such a difference in so many children’s (and families) lives! I appreciate you all!

Kali thought this was the funniest thing ever, we wrapped an orange in red tissue, put it in a cello bag, tied green ‘leaf’ curly ribbon on it and added a gift tag. This is for Mrs. Karen, Kali said she loves jokes and this one is going to make her laugh. It sure had Kali giggling tonight.

Busy little Lady!

Kali had a very busy weekend, Friday night was her dance recital rehearsal, I was there to video for Krista since going up and down the stairs at the festival building quickly is a little difficult with only a little over a month until little Caroline arrives. Saturday was the big day and Kali amazed us all with her grace and stage presence. She did a beautiful job with her numbers and was oh so cute in her costumes. Here are a few photos of her with me, Pop and her mama.

Kali and Ian Wedding Sunday was a big day too, St. Edward’s Pandapalooza proved to be a whole lot of fun for Kali and her step dad Zach, they participated in several relay race events and won ribbons for two of them! Here’s Kali ready for a race with Zach in the background, and ready for action in the tug of war game!
