Fun Day 2011

I loved this as a kid and I love going now with my kids!

Face paint, cotton candy, snow cones, and popcorn - theirs is definitely better than mine were! David and Rebekah made out well even though they're not in school yet.

Melanie is in middle school now so she was already done with school when they had Fun Day, so it was fun to take her with us just to hang out and watch.

School Days: A Fish Tale

James' 1st grade class put on a play. Here he is in the middle with orange shorts and a light green shirt. He was very cute and had a good time!

What a cutie!!

School Variety Show

I always think its cool when kids are brave enough to get up on stage and perform in front of their peers. This year Melissa and her friends did a dance to "Firework" from Katy Perry. They did a good job. The whole show was impressive and a really nice variety from dancing to piano to jokes to singing. I'll have to give credit to Melanie since she did it a few years ago too when she was in elementary school. She played the piano and did a great job. I know it's scary to do so I'm always impressed when kids do it - it builds courage!! Glad schools are still doing it and glad kids are still participating!! Great job Melissa!

Sleeping Rebekah

Just a couple of pictures of Rebekah falling asleep in funny positions in funny places.

My New Bike!

Got a new bike for my birthday - enjoying it very much! Thanks Mom and Dad!!

Piano Recital 2011

Melanie and Melissa are getting really good now. They have had a wonderful year and worked very hard. They both earned a Superior rating at Federation once again. The piano recital was just after we got back from Texas and Melanie didn't feel comfortable playing since she hadn't practiced much while on vacation, so we excused her, but Melissa was glad to and did a great job! Keep it up girls!

We have to give a lot of credit to an excellent piano teacher - so grateful for all Mrs. Sieling does! Thank you!!

Memorial Day Parade 2011

The biggest event of the year in our little Fabius. So much fun, and this year Melissa was in the parade - riding on the Brownie float.

Texas for Grandma Diane's Graduation

Very proud of my mom graduating with her Masters from the University of Texas! It was also great to have a good excuse for a fun family get together. Mom's always a great hostess - thanks again for a wonderful trip!!It was so great that my Grandpa Hulet (my Mom's Dad) and my Mom's two sisters were able to come too. I haven't seen them in way too many years and I know my Mom was thrilled at their support of her. It's such a blessing to have such great family!
The only picture we took at Schlitterbaun - we had a really good time - but camera's and water don't go well together.Jumping off the cliffs at Georgetown Lake.Rebekah fell asleep riding on Eric's shoulders on the way back to the car - kids can sleep anywhere!We got the chance to go to San Antonio and go to the Alamo . . .

And walk/ride the River Walk . . . And go to Sea World.

Lots of fun places with lots of fun people. The kids had a great time getting to know and play with their cousins.They wore themselves (and us) out!
Great Memories!
