Emma turned 11 on July 28th, she is growing up so fast and is such a determined talented girl, we love her so much!. She wanted coffee cake for breakfast and then Nate took Emma and her best friend to panda express and yogurt. She relaxed in the afternoon and for dinner we had chicken and dumplings. Jack and Jackie, Jordan and Emily and some friends came over for cake. Lisa Hatch made an amazing Hippo playing a piano cake. She got lots of fun stuff and concert tickets from us. She was excited!

Catch up!

It the begining of June we went with my parents across country to meet some distant cousins. We drove in their big van which the kids call Big Bertha. We went to Braum's Ice Cream a lot, it was so yummy. Went to Graceland and toured Elvis' mansion then headed to meet the cousins. We toured Shiloh battlefield and saw the spots where the battle took place. It was neat to finally meet our cousins, I was the only one who hadn't met them and my dad wanted to take me. My brother Steven and his kids drove also, it was nice to have them along.We went to Abe's grill the last morning for breakfast and had the best bisquits ever. We toured Braum's factory Plant on the way home and got free ice cream, wish we had it out here, it was delish. The kids did great on the trip other than the last 2 days on the way home we were ready to get out of the car. I appreciate my dad for wanting me to know where our heritage comes from and enjoyed the trip and spending time with family.

We had a wonderful Easter. The kids wore their new Easter clothes to church and they all looked so cute. We had Emily and Jordan over for dinner. I cooked my first ham with scalloped potatoes, rolls, salad, corn and martinelles. It was a lovely day and evening!

Time to Update!

It has been a while since I updated. Here is what has been going on lately in our lives.

Emma joined drama, it fits her,she won a cowboy poetry award and was able to recite her poem at the Cowboy poetry gathering, she did great. Brenna is enjoying reading her new level books, riding her bike around the neighborhood and enjoying activity days for church. Jack started T-ball and enjoys it alot more than soccer, he just wasn't aggresive enough in soccer. We are busy as usual and I can't believe the kids have only about a month of school left. This year has flown by. Thankfully the kids school won't be closing next year so we have another year that we don't have to worry about. We have lots of things coming up in the next few months that I will definately blog about.Will have to get pictures in the next post of Brenna and Brig. Until then!
