July 16th...A Very Special Day

July 16th holds a very very special place in myheart and always will.  It was on this day, 7 years ago, that I married my best friend.  He has given me 2 very special gifts, Big C and Big Girl C. It's hard to believe that 7 years can go by so quickly, but when you are as happy and as in love as I am with this incredible man I guess that's what happens!

Also on this day....I won't diclose how many years ago... my dad was born.  I'm lucky to have such a wonderful man to call dad.  I love to watch him interact with his grandkids and to see the love my children's eyes when they look at him.

Keep rocking out deserve it!

Also on this day...3 years ago....our sweet nephew Oliver was born. He has such a zest for life and a huge heart...we love this little man so much!

What a special day today is....we are so lucky!

Where Can You Find Me?

So...I have a new addiction.......

Oh geez...Pinterest...    If you don't know what Pinterest is, think about it as a digital scrapbook.  Instead of bookmarking an idea or time that you find on the internet, you can "pin" it to a digital bulletin board on the internet.  You can have as many "bulletin boards" as you want and add, add, add ideas, images to them.  I have multiple bulletin boards, anything from classroom party decorating things I wish I could afford.   You can follow me on Pinteres here

What have you been pinning?

What'cha Been Up To?

With school being out for the summer....WOOHOO!!...what have we been doing with all of our time?  Well, we'll show you!

I've been busy crafting of course.  I've finally had the time to make some pillow case dresses that I love! I made 2 for my best friend's baby...due in October.  Here is a picture of one dress, with matching strawberry hat.

Big C finished his first season of TBall.  We are so proud of him!  He ended the season progressing from hitting off of a T to being able to hit off of a pitcher and learned how to slide into home!  Big C also earned his first ever trophy!
 More important than anything, Big C (#2 in the picture) learned out to be part of a team.  We could have asked for a better TBall coach.  His coach was so patient and wonderful with all 9 of the 4 year olds...a true saint this one!

While we made news, we definitely have been making time for our old friends.  We love spending time with family and friends whenever we can. 

 Big Girl C has been making her fair share of friends as well. She tends to like the strong, slient type.
Big Girl C met her friend when we took family time at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati for a Reds game.

Big Girl C has fell in love with everything princess, including calling herself princess.  I may have had a little help in that matter...

We have been spending A LOT of time in the pool at Grammy and Papa's house. Big C is so big that he can walk all over the pool and jump in all by himself!  Big Girl C would prefer to be under the water at all times...gotta keep your eye on her! No swimming would be complete without a popsicle break!

We also celebrated our countries Independence on July 4th. Sadly, we did not have fireworks due to no rain....

We've been celebrating Daddy's new job!  Curt accepted a position as a Junior/ Senior High school Principal.  We will be working and teaching in the same school corporation and couldn't be more thrilled.  Our family attended the the board meeting to approve him.  We couldn't be more proud of him!  WE are all excited to be Spartans!!!!

Whew....our summer is only half over....bring on more summer fun!!
