Soccer Season

Soccer Season is finally here, after our 1st two games being cancelled due to bad weather.

Daniel & Josh are both on the "Pirates".  This is just before the game started

Alisha and the "Lady Hawkeyes."  It was low to mid 50's so a little chilly

Good shot!  Almost a goal.  These girls played hard, and were missing at least 4 players today

Daniel really enjoyed this part. He is not even 4 yet, and already loves Soccer as much as the rest of the kids

Happy Birthday Mommy

Today is my Mommy's birthday, and I just wanted to say some great things about the women that has always loved me, been there for me, and shown me what being a Mother means.

Mom you have always been there

Taught me life isn't always fair

You also taught me to look to him, the one that will carry us in good and bad

and that he is our "Heavenly Dad"

When I look at you I see a strong Christan women who has never given in

You held your head high though thick and thin

Thank you for always being a listening ear

and for drying my every tear

I love you so much Mommy!  Hope this little poem blesses you, and that today is an extra special day for you : )

Baby Shower

My wonderful daughter wanted to throw me a Baby Shower, so she asked her Nana and my Aunt Joanne to help her.  She did a wonderful job, and I feel incredibly blessed that she would do something for me like this.  She is really becoming a young lady, always putting others before herself, and so kind and thoughtful.  Thank you Lord for blessing me beyond measure!!

A big Thank You to my Mommy & Aunt Joanne for helping Alisha.  Thank You Michelle, Katelyn(Hannah& Lily), Vida, and Emily for  blessing us with being here, and cute presents for our newest blessing. I wish my Mom could have been here, but it was very nice having my Aunt after many years of not(since she was a military wife).  My kids LOVE when she comes to visit.

Here are some pictures from the Baby Shower.....
