We celebrated our 7th Wedding Anniversary. Jim and I went to dinner and had a wonderful evening remembering our wedding day.

Alyssa and Zachary hanging out with Brooke

Alyssa and Zachary a year ago

This such a cute video of Zac and Alyssa that Brooke took of the kids last summer. It is hard to imagine that this little guy, who sits there so peacfully would grow up to be a ball of NON STOP ENERGY now!! Alyssa always loved to pet Zachary on the face like you would do to a dog. She loved to call him BUD. It is really neat to watch. Thought you would enjoy watching.

ALYSSA WON TODAY!!!!

Well Alyssa won top magazine sales in the whole school!!! The student who sold the most magazines!! She won a limo ride to lunch with the principal.
This hugh snake is a school tradition. The classroom who has the top sales gets to keep the snake in there classroom. So since Alyssa's classroom also won top sales by a classroom (selling the most magazines out of all the classrooms), they get the snake. This snake is a bigtime bragging right! It was so cute watching the kids walking out of the school on to the blacktop today, they were all holding on to the snake and as they came out of the building, all the parents clapped and cheered for them.
Alyssa is so excited that she was able to raise over $1200.00 for the school. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED ALYSSA OUT! Here is a little video of the principal announcing Alyssa as top magazine seller. Congrats ALYSSA!!!!Posted by Picasa

First day of 1st Grade

Alyssa's first day of 1st grade

Well I knew this day would finally come, Alyssa's first day of First Grade at St. Clare School. I actually did not cry and was great until I walked out of her class room and got alittle weepy.
When I picked Alyssa up from school, I asked her how her day was and she said "Mommy first grade is so much better then kindergarten" So then I was okay. My little girl is growing up!!Ms. Johns is her teacher and she really likes her. So I will continue to post more pictures throughout the school year.

This is such a powerful video


GET A KLEENEX!!!!

We had so much fun. Did I mention how spoiled we all were. Aunt Jo made us all lunch and of course goodies for dessert!!! It was the perfect way to end all of our summer. THANKS AUNT JOANNE!!!
