KJ had a Birthday!

Our Sweet Baby Girl turned 12 Saturday! To Celebrate she and three friends got all dolled up in "party" dresses went out for a fun Photo Shoot, Dinner, and Home for a movie and some yummy snacks.  Here are some pictures of the fun night!

Some of the Yummy Snacks!

Just hanging out!

We had sooo much Fun preparing for this party to Celebrate KJ's 12th Birthday, first KJ and I headed to Goodwill and found party dresses for each of the girls.  Then KJ and I painted fun little boxes and added some jewles, candy, a crown and the invitation (sorry I didn't think about photgraphing these till they were already delivered) Then we went to each girls house delivered the invitations, along with thier dress for the night out.  Again didn't remember the camera till it was over.  Friday night KJ and I went and picked up each of the girls escoted them to the Mini-van (aka Limo incognito) and went to the lake and park for a photo shoot!  I am sure they would have loved to have more pictures taken, but dinner was calling! So we headed to Playa for some yummy chips & salsa. Our night on the town wouldn't be complete with out a trip to Wal-mart so we headed there to get snacks for the movie we had waiting for us at home!  At home they watched The Last Song..... Ate the snacks!..... talked way to loud!.....stayed up way to late!
So Much Fun!  Till Next Year! 

Now all I have to do is edit the pictures and get them printed for the girls as a Thank You!

I'm a working Girl!

Ok so with the summers schedule and me now working full time I have sorta let the Blog go!  Sorry! (I hope you can forgive me!)  I will try to post a little more, once I get used to this new schedule! So far I love Love LOVE my new JOB!  Seriously, I am not sure I have ever felt this way about a job before!  What am I doing you ask!  Well I am a para educator or better known as a teachers assistant.  I get to work with the third fourth and fifth grade classes!  YEAH!!  I have enjoyed everyday! and I can't wait to go back on Monday!

SO this week has been big for our family!  KJ started middle school! I am not liking this one bit! (ok, ok I know she has to grow up but does it have to be soo fast?) Anyway!  Monday night we had orientation!  Where we go to tht school check out the building, meet the teachers, and try to open the dreaded locker! It went fabulous!  I even got a few pictures!  
This is the ok mom seriously I can open the locker leave me alone look!

KJ in front of the School!

MRC had his first day of High School! (Seriously I can not be old enough to have a High School Freshman can I?) I didn't get to go with him to his orientation, since I was with KJ.  But I did get a picture! Only one outside the school.

MR C Outside the High School!

After the orientations we went to Dairy Queen to celebrate with some icecream~
MR C & KJ waiting for thier Blizzards!

All in all this has been a pretty good week!  KJ likes middle school and her teachers! (YEAH!) and MR C loves High School and  his teachers! (YEAH!) 

Big Daddy (Hee Hee that's what I am gonna call the hubby from now on) is preparing for his fall schedule! Promotion Sunday is this week, then in a few weeks Kids Club (soon to be called Disciple Land) will begin! 

MC C  is busy preparing for some big changes and also starts her on line classes next week.  (YEAH!)

I surrvived the crazy summer and contrary to popular belief lived to tell about it!  I know I have been neglecting my blogging but hey there are only so many hours in a day! So since the last time I posted I have spent two weeks at camp and started working full time!  (as if I wasn't busy enough right!:)) KJ and I went to middle school camp and I loved being her counselor!  We had sooo much fun!  Here are a few pictures to show ya!

I came home for almost two whole days only to go back to be the Craftlady at Elementary Camp:

As you can see in the above photo I even crafted while we waited for the kids to arrive!   Both weeks were amazing!  Very Different but to see God at work in the lives of the middle schoolers and elementary kids as well as all the counselors was such a blessing!

After coming home from camp I had a little time to rest before starting a new job today! I will be working in the schools here as a para educator (teachers aide).   Oh I did get to have a girls getaway last weekend check out part of our adventure on my friend Marcie's Blog.  So much fun I will have to blog about that later! For now I am hoping the Nyquill will start working and I will be well rested for my next day of work monday!

Have a Beautiful Day!
