Lucy has been a little cranky lately and has found herself in trouble a time or two! I'm sure it has a lot to do with the fact that she goes to bed WAY to late and wakes up WAY to early. This summer we have had to much fun playing at night and it's hard to get enough sleep! Yesterday she had one of those days where she just couldn't keep out of trouble. I found her writing her name with crayon all over our kitchen chairs. I had finally had enough and told her that she was grounded for the day. The tears came and I knew that she NEEDED a nap!!! So I tucked her in her bed and it wasn't long until she passed out. I had to take Jayne to the doctors for a bit so I left Emilee home in charge. When I got home I found Lucy out in the front yard playing with her friends again. I asked Lucy if she remembered that she was grounded. She replied "Mom, when I woke up you weren't here so I asked Jesus if I could not be grounded any more because I had a good nap and he told me in my heart that it was okay, I could play."

I love....

These big blue eyes!

This contagious smile!

These chubby cheeks, perfect little nose and kissable lips!

These sweet little hands!

These adorable little piggies!

Every inch of this precious little girl!!!

Another FUN year of great memories and new friends.
Another ENTERTAINING year of twirling, practicing, and shaking it around the house 24 - 7.
Another BUSY year of classes, rehearsals, concerts, & competitions.
Which All Adds up to ....
Another GREAT Year of FUN!
I'd have to say it was all worth it! They were STARS!

Summer Celebration!

On the last day of school we had to celebrate! Em wanted a little end of school party with her friends and it turned into this. They just kept coming and it made it all the more fun. If you're going to have a party in this neighborhood you better be ready for an army!
There is one thing this neighborhood isn't lacking- Plenty of KIDS!!! And we love it!
The more the merrier!!

We had a little lunch and then had a water party. Our Dad showed up with a huge piece of plastic for the kids to slide down our front hill on and IT WAS A HIT!!! It kept them all entertained for hours!
Thanks Jay!

Ashley, Emilee, & Dres


Plenty of friends for EVERYONE!

The Celebrating continued the next day!
Our 4th Annual Food Fight was hosted by the Yarro's at the park.
Doesn't it look appetizing?

Then Jason pulled out the plastic for round II ... only Bigger and Better!

Who knew a little plastic could be so much fun?
And we all knew Jason wasn't going to just stand by and watch.
He had a mean competition going with all the dads on who could go the furthest.
And he has some bruises to show for it.
And then it was the ladies turn!

And Boy was it FUN!!!!

Let the Summer Fun Begin!
(Thanks for all the pics Colett!)
