1st Day of 5th grade!

Holy Cow! Where does the time go?! Lexi started 5th grade today! It seems like only yesterday that we were taking her to Kindergarten. She had a great day. She loves her class and her teacher. This is the first year that she has a male teacher. She told me that he is very into Sponge Bob! I guess that keeps you young at heart. She was a little nervous about going to a new school and making new friends, but she is an outgoing person, so I don't think it will take her any time at all to make new friends. Here's to a great year!

Happy 45th Mom and Dad!

My mom and dad celebrated their 45th anniversary on the 17th! They are such great parent's and I'm glad that they are mine! We spent the afternoon at their house and made dinner for them. Half of the family was able to go down to their house. They were very happy and appreciative that we made the effort to celebrate with them. Here's to many more years filled with fun and laughter!

Last Day's of Summer

Summer went by so fast. It seems like it just got warm and the kids just got out of school, when it's time to go back. We tried to pack in a lot of fun in the last week before school started. Lisa and I took the kids to 7 peaks one day. They had a blast. Lisa and I sat under the unbrella and snacked all day! Isn't that fun, we did go on some slides!

Maxwell has arrived!

We are so excited for the arrival of our new nephew! He was born early Tuesday morning at 2:35 a.m. Maxwell is his name. He weighed 6 pounds 6 ounces and was 19 inches long. Just a little guy! I was thrilled that she invited me in for the delivery. Earlier, Trish came down to Dani's so that we all could go for a walk. She didn't want to come at first, but I told her this would be the best thing for her if she was starting into labor. I told her to bring her bag just in case, (I didn't think she would really need it). We went for a good walk and when we arrived back at Dani's she sat down and had some water and all of a sudden she looked like she was having another pain; then a look of surpise came over her face. I said jokingly, "did your water just break" she look at us and said yes! Both Dani and I screamed and clapped our hands! It was pretty funny that we did it at the same time. She went to the hospital and then everything went quite fast. She was only in labor for 5 hours. She did great. I am so proud of her! She and Cody and the new baby Maxwell, are home now doing very well. She is a wonderful mom and very calm. She's been around a lot of babies! We are so happy for them!
