Jackson and Zoey - Pals!

Much! He is such a good dog!

Amy's dog Zoey came for a visit and Jackson really liked playing with her. 

They get along so good together! 
I am so glad! 

Abby came too and she sure did keep us on our toes! 

She liked getting her feet washed. 

Then she decided to water the flowers! 

Isn't that just adorable?

I sure do love this little smooshie!

Fun with Abby

A few weeks ago, I was blessed to be able to watch Abby for several days.
I love this kid so much! 

She loves to pick flowers!

And Smell them!

She ends up ripping most of my flowers off of the bushes, but she has so much fun doing it that I can't get upset.

She runs back and forth in the yard and just laughs!

I am so thankful that I get to spend time with her!

My Birthday

I know this post is over a month late, but I am catching up on all of the stuff that I have missed posting about! 

My birthday this year was AWESOME!!! 

I am so glad that Detto got to share my special day this year! 
Last year he was deployed and the kids and I were in Italy. I will never forget my birthday in Venice, but I love being home with my family! 

This year I decided to stay home all day in my JAMMIES!! Stephen got me a huge 3-D Justin Bieber card. 
It was paybacks for me buying him a Justin Fan Club book as a joke for Christmas! LOL

He is so cute! 

Nana stopped by on my special day too!

I got some GREAT jewelry for my special day! 

Detto got me some beautiful pearls and Stephen and Sissy got me a heart charm that says "Mom" on one side and "I love you" on the back! 

I am so blessed!

THEN....Detto sang to me "One Less Lonely Girl" & DANCED!!!!

The kids joined in and it was AWESOME!! 

I don't know if there it is possible to have a better present than watching these crazies sing and dance! 

They were crackin' me up!! 

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family!

2012 School & Sports

This is my first year in Many, Many, many years not homeschooling. 
It has been strange, but good! 
Alyssa is attending Adventure Christian Academy (ACA) and she has had some adjustments, but over all I am VERY pleased with the transition.

One thing Alyssa is LOVING is the sports program at ACA. 

She is playing Volleyball ...

 There is a ton of support from the parents, grandparents, and school staff. 
Because this is a small school, everyone knows everyone, but it seems that everyone actually likes everyone and that makes a big difference.

 It has been fun to watch the kids on the team improve as the season progresses. 

I am pleased to announce that we have actually won a few games. 
Even Stephen likes to go to the games and cheer on Sissy! I am so blessed to have such wondermus kiddos!

I love supporting my kids in their adventures along the way...
