Way to go Maddy!

Madeline made student of the month!  We are so proud of her.  Madeline told us in her passive way that this grand event happened.  She handed me some awards and said "Hey mom here are some awards."...Me "What are these for?"...Maddy "Oh, I made student of them month and they give you awards".  She is too funny.  We are so super proud of her.  Anyone who knows her knows are hard she works and how much she deserves this.  Rock on Maddy!

Yeppers another video...I couldn't resist doing this for Abigial's baptism.

I promise no more videos for a while after this one...they are getting me waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too emotional!  Abby actually cried watching this too.  Abigail wanted to take this to school for show and tell.  I was hesitant because it contained religious pictures.  I didn't know if they could show this at school.  Her teacher was AWESOME about it.  She let her show it and simply said that everyone has their own faith and this is Abby's.  It was a neat experience.  I love her teacher for giving Abby that moment!

Family Fun

Yes it was freezing!  Yes there was drama!  But we made it work.  This was the first time in 6 years, since Robbie and Jacki's wedding, that we have all had a family picture together.  This was awesome.  It was so stinking cold but we did it!  Doesn't David's dad look like he needs a pitchfork (that old farmer picture).  Or as Kirsten, my sister in law, said "He looks like the guy from Weekend and Bernies, you know the dead guy they prop up"...It's a good thing he is such a good sport.   This was a great time with family...Love it!
Here is a great picture of all of the grand kids.  They are sure yummy!  The next Photo right after this, Adri the girl in the blue coat by Savannah turned and smelled Savannah's hair flower.  And her sister Teya, the baby in Savannah's arms, bursts into tears.  Priceless!  Oh and if you notice Abigail's coat is pinned shut.  She slammed her coat in her school locker the day before pictures.  Yep...Priceless!
