Birthdays and Stuff

Well, I haven't blogged for a while. It's time we updated! We've had a few little successes over the last several weeks, so it might be nice to mention them.

We've had a few birthdays in the last months. First it was Adam in March. He turned 17. Wow, that was fast...

Wouldn't you know it, we didn't snap photos this time. I think that is a first. Bummer.

Next there were several band dates that came and went. The Colorguard went to California and Keith and Lainey went to help and cheer them on. They did well and had a great time touring Alcatraz and going to Six Flags. Keith and Adam went to Reno with the Jazz Bands and enjoyed playing and touring. They stayed at the Circus Circus Hotel.






Adam won a musicianship award there. We are proud of him!







Then Lainey turned into a teenager!!!

Speaking of Wow....that happened fast...my baby is a teenager!















She joined the ranks of the I-Pod generation...





The very next week was Drew's 19th Birthday! He celebrted with one of his favorite people...his brother Adam. The love flows easily around here!

Special request birthday cake-Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, cherry pie filling and whipped cream! I think we all went into a sugar shock after that.















Drew recieved luggage for his mission. It's getting closer!
