My husband and I had our 8th anniversary this week. WOW! It’s been 8 wonderful years!!! I love my husband dearly and I’m so thankful to the Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful husband!!!
We are hoping to get out of the house for a little this Saturday and do something together. Breakfast and some time at the beach maybe. I just got a babysitter so this might work out after all!!! Woohoo!!!
One of our awesome friends send us a bouquet of flower for our anniversary. The flowers are so beautiful and smell so nice!!! I put them next to my cropping table so I could smell them while working on things.
I thought I would share some pics of the flowers with you all!!!
So Happy Anniversary to those that are celebrating such event!!! May the Lord bless your lives together for many more years!!!!
WOW! I can’t believe I actually have some time to post a post here. It’s been a very busy month of September. I haven’t had time to come here and post anything in some time now, haven’t even had the time to read up all of the blogs that I’m following. It’s getting better but only to pick right back up in too the busy month of Oct.-Dec. In December we are having another Silent Auction/Bake Sale at our School as Fundraiser for our Church Building Fund. So I’ve got A LOT of projects to do. I’m really looking forward to that. Can’t wait to show you all the things that I have in my head to do… LOL If only it was easy to get them out of my head.
So anyways, this post is about this past weekend. We had such a good weekend spending as a family. I got to scrapbook in the morning, kids played nicely so that was really good. At about 3pm we heard some airplanes flying over our house very low and very loud. We came out to see what was going on and found out that it was an Air Show that weekend at Hickam AFB. We watched those planes from our house do all sorts of things. It was really awesome. They were flying so low that baby Sara was trying to hide her head she kept saying “My head” LOL it was cute. The girls LOVED it. We took some pictures and videos from our back yard.
On Sunday after morning Church Serves we decided to go to the base and see the planes more up close. We have never been to an Air Show before so this was really neat to see and experience. I was so impressed of how the base people had everything organized for the civilians to come on base to watch the show. They had roads blocked off and enough military men and women to guide us to where we needed to be at. It was really neat.
Here are some pictures that we took and a video or two. I have a small digital camera so our pics didn’t come all that great but still they look cool I think. If you click on the photo you’ll be able to see it bigger.
And here are couple of videos. The camera had a hard time focusing so sorry about that.
Please ignore the commentary…. LOL These are just the two of my favorite videos.
This was one of my last projects for the wedding that I was helping out with. I had a lot of fun doing it.
The wedding was June 27, 2009 and it was such a beautiful, personal and intimate wedding. No one had a dry eye in the room. It was just beautiful. You could just see God’s presence in the wedding and the love that the groom and bride have for each other. I cried and laughed through the wedding ceremony and through the reception.
This is me and my husband at the reception with the bride and groom.
Bride and Groom right after the ceremony when people got to walk up to them and congratulate.
I just love these photos of them walking outside after the wedding ceremony.
And here is the sign that I did for their car. We (the Bride helped) used a foam board to attach all of these fun things too and then the groom attached it to the car.
Used: Plantin SchoolBook, Lyrical Letters, Eccent Essentials cartridges. Chocolate chalk. Stickles. Flowers. Jewels for the middle of the flowers.
The girls and I got to pick our first mangoes this season off of our mango tree today. I was so excited!!!! We are having a lot less mangoes this year but still there’s plenty to share with friends on the island. Wish we could mail them but we can’t, because my parents would LOVE to have some.
Fresh mango off of a tree are so much better then from the store. I didn’t used to like mangoes until I tried right off of a tree…. and YUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! It was so good!!!
Here are some pictures of the mangoes that we picked today. I think we got around 9.
These are really nice size. We do get some that are much bigger then this. Those are really cool.
Yummmm!!!! They are in the fridge right now waiting for tomorrows morning.
A very good friend of mine who is very creative and knows what she’s doing in the computer area did the upgrades for my blog… I’m so not a computer person and I’m so excited to have a friend like Lita who can do things like this in a meter of a click of a button and from the side of the world, Australia that is. You can visit Lita’s blog here . She has amazing traditional and digital layouts, beautiful peaces of jewelery and is just the sweetest thing ever!!!! Love ya Lita!!! Thank you so much for helping me out with my blog!!!! Your the BEST!
I can’t believe my baby is a two year old now. Where did the time go? She was just born and now she’s walking around I mean running around telling people what they can and can not do. Yup, my little baby is a two year old. WOW!
Katherine, Leda and I started off our morning by singing a Happy Birthday song to Sara she was so excited. Then we had cereal for breakfast…..
I did a little video for our family and friends of Sara saying how old she is now….
One of our friends has a pool in their neighborhood so went to the pool to celebrate Sara’s Birthday. We had 11 kids and 4 moms helping us celebrate her Birthday. It is always so fun to get together with girlfriends and the kids had a blast at the pool. Sara was scared of the water at first but by the time we had to go home you couldn’t get her out of it. We had egg sandwiches, strawberries, grapes, pasta salad, some veggies and dip, chips and I’m sure I’m forgetting something for lunch. Our awesome friend Kristen made cupcakes with rainbow sprinkles, yummmmmmm…. Then Sara opened her gifts took her for ever to do that she sure loved the attention she was getting. LOL
Here are some pictures from our day at the pool.
Three sisters…. If you are able in anyway to get all of your kids to look at the camera all at the same time in order to take a nice picture PLEASE share your secret. Because it took 3 of us moms to get this picture taken…. LOL Some one was always looking some where else. Sara is still not looking at me but at list she has her eyes opened… LOL
Then there was the opening of the gifts. She got… a Mermaid Barbie that she is so thrilled about…. She’s playing with it right now…
Sesame Street Abby Cadabby Building Set. She loves this as well…. So easy to put the peaces together for her.
And look at this beautiful dress. And it’s in BROWN and PINK colors!!!! So cute… and our friend made a matching hair clip to go with the dress. Isn’t that too cute!
A Bath basket. Now she has her very own bath towel and a hand towel. A new tooth brash, a bath sponge and some other fun things.
The kids climbed a tree while they were waiting to go swimming again after eating lunch. This is Katherine picking out from the top of the tree. She was standing on the branch and her head was above the tree. That was cool.
Just to show you that the tree wasn’t that tall.
Swimming pool fun. Our friends.
Katherine with her friends… she’s the girl in the middle.
This past Thursday evening we spend with our friends at their vacation cabin at the beach. Katherine was at the camp so we just had Leda and Sara with us. They got to go hunt for some sand crabs and had so much fun.
It was way too funny to see them jump in the sand because of a crab. The face expressions they had when the crabs were trying to escape from their cups…. Priceless!!!!
Our friends son and his friend had gotten a bucket and got some crabs in there. I did a video of Chris and the girls looking at the crabs. The girls are trying to protect Chris from sticking his fingers in the bucket because the crabs would eat his fingers…. LOL
No crabs were harmed during the making of this video…
Leda was OK in case any of you are wondering. Sara was just waiving around that fly swapper thing, she was killing bugs earlier. Yeah, the things our kids get to do at the beach…..
