Backing up a bit...

This year we did the usual Easter picture in front of the house and by the Maple tree.
I am amazed when I look back at all the pictures how much the kids have grown.
We did add a few more this year.
The kids wanted to have one of them jumping on the trampoline, so we added that this year along with a few others.

On the bench by the River Birch tree.
Jumping for Joy!
By the Maple tree.

After taking our pictures we decided to go to the new park in downtown Duncan.
The kids loved it!
It was a great end to a great day!

Till next time,

Brian and Marybeth's wedding

A wonderful evening!
May 16, 2009
We were invited to Brian and Marybeth's wedding at AMRBC and their reception at Summit Pointe.
It was a wonderful wedding. So sweet and special. They had a great reception at Summit Pointe next to Chandi's.
The food was great and it was a lot of fun for the kids.
This is the first wedding that the kids have been invited to that they actually were friends with the people getting married.
I think we have moved into a new era of our lives....
we are no longer going to our friends weddings, but to the weddings of our children's friends...
Wow we are old! :-(
Here is a shot of Sarah posing pretty for us... she was so excited to wear this dress... the last time it was worn was at my Aunt's wedding by Hannah when she was 6.

Sarah and Jonathan looking adorable.

I am not sure what Jonathan was doing here.... I think he was just sitting on the floor next to Sarah's chair.

Sarah caught the bouquet.
She was so excited to get to pose with Marybeth for a "real" picture.
Sarah just loves Marybeth.
It was very magical for Sarah to see the wedding.
She said Marybeth looked like a princess!

Abigail looking very pretty!

All in all a wonderful night of fun and fellowship.

End of April Begining of May

Terrific Kid
April 23, 2009

On April 23rd we went to Westview to see Jonathan being honored as Terrific Kid. He was chosen by his classmates and his Teacher.

When we walked out of the ceremony we noticed Sarah's writing had won the Principal's pick for her work. It was displayed on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria.
Here is a picture of it with a picture of her reading it for the school.
End of year Chorus Concert
April 30, 2009
Every year Hannah is in an end of year chorus concert to show off all they have learned in Chorus class for the year. This year since she is in the 7th grade she got to wear the black formal dress.
Last year she had to wear a blue chorus shirt and black pants.
She looked beautiful in her dress!
They did a wonderful job singing.

Children's Choir Concert
May 3, 2009

Jonathan is in the children's choir at church. Every year they put on a musical for the church at Christmas and in the spring.

This year they decided to teach the children about true praise and worship. It was a wonderful show. Jonathan did a great job. He had a speaking part and did a wonderful job.

Jonathan during his speaking part.
They honored the kids that will no longer be in the children's choir next year. Jonathan will be moving up to the Shift preteen next year. They gave a little gift to all the kids.
Here is Jonathan getting his gift.

Singing in Church
Sarah and Jonathan sang in church in March sometime... not so sure when it was but here are the pictures. They do such a wonderful job. They love singing and being in front of the church.

Here are some shots of them in action.

Catch up time.... Abigail at USC Upstate

Focus Gallery at USC Upstate
Abigail's artwork was chosen to be displayed in the USC Upstate Focus Gallery. It is a wonderful honor. They had a little reception and said a few words to each of the kids.
This is a self portrait that she painted with acrylic paint. She had one picture of herself and then she used Photoshop to put the picture in negative colors and then painted the pattern of several of the same pictures of herself.
