Ready Or Not I'm Growing Up!

Pace's First Day of Kindergarden! You can tell who is Grandma is because he posed for a million different pictures! He was so excited he practically ran out the door!

Eating Breakfast at school for the first time. Everyone gets free breakfast and lunch at his school. He was so excited to eat in the Cafeteria like a big boy!

Shea wasn't quite as excited for him to be going to school. She had a really hard time! I have to admit. I did too! Just cried a little though.

Pace lined up with his class to go inside. Mrs. Snow, his teacher, is counting them. 36 Students! They are hiring a new teacher very soon! Poor lady!

This is a picture Pace made in Preschool. It says, " My Mom the queen is waiting for my Dad to come and get her!". "The dragon is trying to get the Knight away from the castle." I'm so glad someone realizes I'm the Queen! Cute boy!
Pace lost his first tooth and was sooooo excited to put it under his pillow and have the tooth fairy come. As the night got closer he got less and less excited. When it was time for bed he was scared to death to go into his room. He was so scared that she would come when he was still awake and scare him. He was so scared that we finally had to call the tooth fairy and ask her if she could come the next day while he was at swim lesson instead. The tooth fairy said that was fine and when I hung up with her Pace was staring at me in amazement. He said, "You just talked to the tooth fairy, that's so cool!"

Pace with his dollar from the tooth fairy!

He's not so scared in the day time. Okay he was! He wouldn't even go into his room after swim lessons without me and his dad. Goofy kid!

Putting his tooth under his pillow!

He's growing up! So exciting and yet so sad! Love you Pacer Bug!

Camp Gramma Luvlee!!!!

I'm so bad. I have been meaning to blog about our AMAZING Camp Gramma Luvlee for 2 months and am just getting to it! We went on a Time Travel Adventure! It was soooo much fun!
We were met by the Absent Minded Professor (my dad) and he told us the risks of traveling in his time machine. Let me tell you they were scary! After everyone signed a consent they were aloud to enter the time machine.
This pictue is priceless! We were able to capture what their faces looked like when it first started up. Pappa is a GREAT time machine builder. It had a flashing light, and shook and made a loud sound. The kids were a little freaked at first.
They were greated in the 60's by a very Groovy Chick, Crimson Haze! She'd had one too many Special Brownies but she was able to help them with their Square problem anyways. She taught them the lingo and how to dress!
All in all these Squares turned out to be pretty groovy kids!
Then it was off to Woodstock. What a way to start the show with our very own Jimmy Hendrix! Ryan is such a great sport!
We had some totally awesome performances! Such as: These Boots Are Made for Walking by two very sexy chicks!
Do Wa Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Do! Love the shirt Pace!

The Yellow Submarine. Even did Jimmy's dance in there!
I've Got You Babe. Merrill liked the woman thing a little too much! It really ticks me off when he fits into my pants and looks better in them than me! Not fair!

And In the Jungle The Lion Sleeps Tonight! Even though some of the band quit last minute it was very Groovy!

The next day we boarded the time machine and were off to ancient Egypt. I can't figure out why the kids were scared to death this day, can you?
I think my mom thought it would be funny to make me Indiana Jones and see me squeeze my big ol booty through our tiny pyramid opening! We were on a quest to find Cleopatra's gold and her husbands heart! We have some brave little explorers. Okay, not so much!

Some gorgeous Egyptian Princesses! After finding the gold they got to dress like egyptians and eat like them too! We learned all about mummies and tombs! Then that night the older kids got to go on a search for the mummies heart! We had lots of fun scaring the pants off them! It's a good thing the Gilliam girls were there to protect Merrill!

The next day we went back to the caveman and Dinosaurs! First we had to design our skins. Aunt Elizabeth did quite a good job!
We got to design our own spears and were taught to hunt. We even went on a hunt for giant Dino eggs!
The fourth day was Knights and Ladies. Shea told me, "Mom I don't want to be a knight, I want to be a lady so they can rescue me! So cute! They got to all dress up in royal attire. Shea wouldn't take hers off the rest of the week. They had a blast jousting, fighting the mean mean dragon (Merrill, he showed NO mercy!) and doing a relay (don't mess with Danii :).

Being presented to the Queen. Introducing Lady Total de Saster! Okay, she drew that name randomly by pulling a sword from the stone but it couldn't be more fitting!!!!

Pace LOVED being a Knight. So much in fact that he's changing his whole room into a castle! Sir Ham of Burger protecting his lady! Love this picture!
Queen Mandy and Lady (can't remember her name right now). Aren't they gorgeous!
That night at the royal ball the men had to woo the lady's. Here is Shea's Knight in Shining Armor!
Love Love Love this picture! Jordin with her Knight in Shining Armor! Okay what girl wouldn't want him after seeing this picture! I have the sweetest nephew in the world!

On the last day we were taken to the 50's and that's where we stayed! Here's Pace in the "Lay the Kiss on Elvis Game"! Love the red lips buddy! All my other pictures from this day got erased and I can't figure out how to get them back on. Bummer!
On the last day the Dads all came and got to do some of the games the kids liked best! What fun it was to laugh at them doing them! Especially the Lay the Kiss on Elvis Game which of course got deleted with my other pictures some how. Grrrr....
That night we had a 50's Sock Hop at Dan's Diner! It was a blast! Especially because we had our favorite people in the world there! The Gilliams! We love them! Who else would dress up with us and be crazy! Camp Gramma Luvlee wouldn't be complete without them!
Jordin even had a poodle skirt! Gramma Luvlee is so cute! Love this picture!
Here's the family at the sock hop! I know, so attractive!
Thank you Gramma Luvlee and Pappa for an AMAZING Camp Gramma Luvlee! We had a blast and made tons of memories we'll never ever forget!!! I know that when I go back in time this will be at the top of my memories to visit!!! We love you tons and tons!

Our Sweet Jordin Lee

Our Sweet Jordin Lee arrived on April 12th @2:19 p.m. We were all so excited to have her here with us! We were REALLY excited that she only weighed 7.5lbs instead of Shea's 8.4lbs! She came into the world alert and with her tongue hanging out. She wanted to see and taste anything she could I guess! She is an eater too! At two weeks she's already up to 8.2lbs. She is such a great baby! She is always smiling, even if it is at angels! ( I think it's at Steven, who we gave her the middle name Lee after!) Pace and Shea absolutely love her and want to hold her constantly! Daddy is already wrapped around her finger. And me, I love to sit and stare at her. She is so amazing!

Pace and Shea are sooo proud of their new sister. Shea tells everyone, "You want to come see my new Jordin!"

Thanks to Gramma Luvlee for taking these amazing pictures! She captured my sweet little girl so well!

Daddy loves his baby girl! I love this picture!

My little ball of Joy!

I love this picture of Jordin! She is so precious! This is after she peed, pooped, and spit up up all over me! The price we pay for Great pictures!!
