God Bless America . . .

Land that I love! I am so thankful to live in this great country and have all the freedoms that we enjoy and take for granted. I don't get too politically involved but in honor of the 4th of July we got out the paint and made some cute holiday decorations. Thanks again to Ron for being such a great wood cutter!

See I am patriotic! Now if someone would fix all the problems this country is having . . .

Dance Recital Take Two

Anaston has also been taking dance lessons and this time it was her turn for a recital. She was cute as can be in her costumes, dancing in two different dances. I love being Grandma and getting to enjoy my grandkids in things like this.

It was held on my anniversary and I even ditched Ron for a couple hours to attend. What a devoted grandma! :)

The Twins Turn Thirty!

Brian and Stephanie turned 30 on June 2nd. Can you believe it? I now have more children in their 30's than in their 20's. Does that mean I am getting old? We celebrated with dinner and then cake and ice cream on Sunday. They are both great kids and we are proud of them!

Don't they look happy to be 30?!
Love you guys, glad you are part of our family!

Dance Recital

Kinsley has been taking dance lessons and had her big recital on Saturday at the Higley Performing Arts Center. Kimberly bought me a ticket so I could go watch. As the music started playing and the kids started dancing, I got teary-eyed (I seem do that alot lately!) thinking back to the days when my girls were small and dancing in recitals. Then I realized that I no longer had to pay for lessons, dance clothes, shoes, costumes, recital fees, photographs, etc. and I cheered up considerably! It was fun to watch and Kinsley was adorable as a lion dancing to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."

Thanks for the ticket Kim, it was fun!
