My little girl has turned 11! What a little sweetheart! And let me tell you her birthday was a whirwind. We asked her if we could celebrate a few days later, but nope, she wanted it on her birthday. So after t-ball, and dance, and scouts, and mutual, at 9:30 we finally celebrated her birthday, but it was ok, she was so happy!
 She fianlly got her big hoop earings :) yea!
 And a skipper jump rope thingy, which she is really good at, (I will practice when nobody is around so I can get good and show off to everybody later)
 And this fun big volleyball game which if it ever stops raining she will really enjoy playing!
 Happy birthday birthday my beatiful princess.
 and a new shirt from grandma and grandpa carroll!
 Then on to zach's middle school graduation, BBQ and minute to win it fun!! He had a blast. here he is having fun playing the games.
 Zach seems pretty fleible leaning all the way over to pick up the sacks for this game.
 Stacking up the bolts, he seems pretty steady.
 AND THEN.........on to lagoon (or as jj calls it the goon) the girls had a dance competiton so off we were to lagoon to dance and play! first of all, allis team took first, yea, and abbys team took second, yea!! here are the kids and brian playing!!

Me and the crazy kids , we all had a BLAST!! a little too much sun, a little too much fun. great family day! my kids amaze me, they all went on roller coasters, Abby was a little short to go on some, but she wanted to, but the rest of them went on crazy roller coasters that blew me away! my kids are fearless! I love them.

my mothers day

 These are the adorable "breakfast in bed" sacks that salt and pepper made for me in school to give me on mothers day. they were so excited they had a hard time waiting! and how cute are those pics of me on the front.
 These are the goods. a little apple juice, granola bar,a fig bar, and a napkin, then on mothers day, jason came running in, and threw the sack on my bed, and said happy mothers day! and ran off, It was pretty cute. unfortunatley abby was sick so ,I got my sack from her later.
 This is the poem on the front of the sack, I thought it was adorable.
Being a mom means everything to me! I love my kids more than anything, they teach me so much every day. I am hopefully growing as a mom all the time and getting better at it! I love my kids so much!

my baby is 14!!!!

 I find it so hard to believe that my baby boy is now 14, it went so fast, Zach is such a fun kid. He has such a unique sense of humor, he keeps us laughing all the time. We all just love him so much!
 Can you believe we got all those candles on one cake!
 Zach is the ultimate gamer. He would play games 24/7 if we let him, so of course every holiday or b-day he asks for a new game, and this is the one he got this time :)

one happy teenager! love you buddy!
