Mia's Bible

Mia was presented on March 6, 2009 with her Bible by Dr. Sisson. He had been ill but came to chapel to present the Bibles. She passed pg. 100 in her speedy reader and now is working on trying to finish the book before graduation. She is doing a great job with it. As of today, she is on pg. 120. I am so proud of her hard work.

New Motorcyle

This is my hubby's finished product of the bike he's been working on all winter long.
He painted the bike a nice Teal blue, polished the crome on the bike and changed almost every gasket, plug, filter that could be changed. Changed the handle bars, bought new mirrors, changed the hand grips and bought bike bags for it also. He's very proud of his bike and I am proud of him and his hard work.

Time goes by fast.

Has it been 2 wks since I last posted? Time goes by fast and I didn't even realize it. All has been well with us.
Mia has finally passed pg. 100 of her speedy reader and will be getting her bible in chapel on Friday 3-6-09. I will be sure and post pics afterward.
Alana is getting smarter, yes I know she's my girl but she is. She is learning alot from her sister and at the daycare. She actually sings whole songs now not just a portion of it.
Lydia is talking alot clearer now and loves following her sister around and copying them. She is such a cuttie pie.
As for Brian, he finally finished his bike. I'm going to take pics of it later today and post another day. It looks like a whole new bike. I am proud of him.

Hope you all have a great day.

Salon Day Pics.

Here are the pics I kept forgetting to post. For Mia's Birthday I took them all to the Salon for a hair cut. My friend and her mom have one made really nice in their basement. They didn't like it at first but than later they got used to it.

All over

The wedding is finally over and all the work is done. Here are some of the pics I took.

This one was immediately after the wedding. Letting everybody out of the auditorium.

Mia, the flower girl.

The brides maids having a little laugh.

The lovely couple.

As the brides personal attendant, I had to help her with the restroom thing. Could you believe she forgot to go before putting her dress on (and the back of the dress was a corsett, not very easy to put on). I could not pass on this picture.

Busy weekend

Well, I keep forgetting to post because I have some pictures to go along with the post. Since I keep forgetting to download my pictures to my computer I decided to post and than later show the pics.

Well, we'll begin with Saturday the 7th; We had breakfast with the kids and then since the weather was so nice the kids wanted to play outside. Off we went to play in the nice muddy outdoors and took the dogs for a walk. We ate lunch and then got re-dressed (took all the muddy clothes off) and took off to the hair salon. All three girls got a hair cut. (I'll post pics later). After that we went to grandma & grandpa elliott's house and we all went out to dinner for Mia's birthday. By the time we got home, it was 8pm. & the girls went to bed.

On Sunday (Mia's birthday) we went to church, of course, in the morning and took Mia to eat at Red Robin with another couple friend of ours. She enjoyed them singing to her and her free ice-cream sundae. When we got home it was nap time, we knew they would be tired. After nap they got up and we started moving Mia into her new room. She officially has her own room now. She loves it, and it makes her feel all grown up.

It might take a few days for me to post the pics I have since I still have to finish the boquets for the wedding this Saturday. Off I go now. Hope you all have a great day.

Oh the planning!

It is 2 days till Mia's 6th birthday and wondering what to get her. We are giving her, her own room on Sunday night. We are waiting till then because this is the last Saturday the my future brother-in-law will be staying with us. So after church on Sunday morning we will take her out to eat and than move all her stuff over to her new room.

To continue on the planning, my sister-in-law gets married on Valentine's day and I'm helping her with alot of stuff for the wedding. I'm going over tonight to help her with make-up choices and than we have to finish the bouquets. I'll have to take pictures of the finished products. I think they are very pretty and that's not just because I'm making them. LOL.

It's supposed to get up into the 30's near 40's today. YEAH!!!!! I guess living in Northwest IN I should not be surprised, I'm just ready for it to be over. It has been a very cold winter in a long time.

Well, until next week. Have a great weekend.
