Zac's Cubbie Award Ceremony

 This year Zac was old enough to go Awana's with Kyla and Kaleb at Maywood Free Church. Zac was in the 3 yr old Cubbie's.
 Last Wednesday night, they had the graduation ceremony for the Cubbies:
They recited some Bible verses together as a group:
And they sang some songs along with the hand motions:

Then Zac was presented with his Cubbie award certificate. He also got a little stuffed Cubbie to wear on his vest. In talking with his teacher, we learned that:
He is quiet and does just what he is told,
He listens and answers the questions right,
He doesnt talk or jump or act crazy in class,
He has no stories for the teacher about his family,
He is the perfect kid and they all love him.
I am asking myself, Are they talking about the same kid  that we all know and love??? LOL
 Bailey was so Happy for Zac, that she ran up and gave him a BIG hug over and over again. Everyone around thought that it was so cute and of course, it was. :-)
 Then came refreshment time and dodge ball time. The leader said that this is the kids favorite game to play at Cubbies. They certainly know what to do because there were balls going everywhere.
 Bailey fit right in and was not intimidated one bit with the big kids. WHY does this not surprise anyone??? LOL
 She was running around just like they were and throwing the ball. It was fun to watch the kids play.
 A picture of Mom, Dad and Zac taken under protest from Zac. He just wanted to play more and look at that red face, it was Red!!! Congrats Zac on your accomplishment!!!

Flower bottle

I needed a gift for a friend and I have seen wine bottles wound with yarn and they look really pretty. I didn't have a wine bottle so I went to the Goodwill store in our town. I found the best bottle!! and the best part was, it was .99 and it came with odd flowers in it but Hey, I can use those at some point in time. lol It wasn't a wine bottle but it was very thick glass and it is very sturdy. I had some twine at home, so I glued and wound it to the bottle. I made some yo yo's and added to the front and put in silk flowers. I think that my friend will love it.
This was very relaxing for me and so much fun and now it is giving me lots of ideas for other vases too, :-)

Our new car!!

Dons old work car died towards the end of last year. We have been sharing cars and also using Kim's too. Today we were able to get another car. It isnt new but new to us. It is a Navy blue, Chrysler 300M. It has low miles, a sun roof which is really cool, power seats, heated seats, a huge trunk, new tires, cool rims, programmable seats, leather interior, CD player, A/C, and some other bells and whistles, so we are living large here LOL
We just think it is really sharp and I think it will make a great car for us!!

Easter Time

Kyla and Kaleb Easter morning!!
That afternoon we went to Valerie's for dinner and a egg hunt. Now for some reason, I wasnt really with it and I didnt realize that they had started looking for eggs, so the egg pics are pretty spars. There were tons of them all over the place but of course, I have NO picture of it, LOL
Kim and Valerie had the kids pictures taken with baby chicks in their Easter outfits!! Here are my favorites:
Allissa, Zac and Bailey
 Kyla and Kaleb
 I bet those baby chicks were pretty worn out, LOL
