Arizona Sunsets

My friend took this picture a couple of weeks ago at a park in town that we frequently go to. Arizona sunsets are absolutely beautiful. I have never seen sunsets like theses anywhere else. Now imagine it's night-time, completely pitch black, no street likes except for the natural light of the moon. You stare up into the sky to see millions of stars as close to the earth as you have ever seen them. I wish I could show a picture of that. I love Arizona skies!

Tea Party

Hayley's cute hat!

Our Tea Party Hats. Hayley's is on the left and mine is on the right.

Ready for a party!

The Activity Day Girls had a recognition night a couple of weeks ago. They invited all the moms and girls (ages 8-11) to a Tea Party (lemonade). The girls and moms were to wear tea party hats that they had decorated themselves. We really didn't have a tea party hats to decorate and didn't want to spend a lot of money on hats, so Hayley and I bought some paper plates and bowls and made our hats using them. It was a lot of fun and everyone thought that they were sooo cute and creative. Each mom and girl were to get up and share with the group what made them special. Hayley really wanted to do it, but was too shy, so I got up for her. It was a still a wonderful night for the both of us to spend together. Hayley is growing up so fast. I can't believe she is already 10 years old. She has sooo many gifts and talents and I hope that one day she will feel confident enough to share them with others. She is such a joy to have in our family.

Kindergarten Graduation

I have not posted any pictures in awhile. I've gotten a little lazy I guess. But, we have had a lot of activities going on, so I will spend the next few days catching up. Our Andrew just had his Kindergarten graduation a couple of weeks ago. He was soooo excited and as soon as it was over informed us that he was now in the first grade. The class had a little program and he dutifully said his part. We all enjoyed pizza and cake afterwards.
