Hi!

I’m back! Did you miss me?! I can’t believe it’s been 10 days since I last posted…I guess I’ve been busier than I thought! So what have we been up to? Well, here’s our last week in pictures and video:
Saturday Brianna receives her 1st Communion. We are really excited, although I’m trying to figure out how I can possibly have a child this old! lol- this is the symbol that we made to add to the banner that hangs in the back of the church so everyone knows who is receiving 1st Communion. I think it turned out cute!

Last Monday I was shocked when I received an alert on my phone that there was a shooting at a local high school. As the story unfolded we learned it was one student who walked into his 1st period class, pulled out a gun and attempted to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head. Fortunately (unfortunately??) he wasn’t successful. He survived the attempt and is still in critical condition at a local hospital. It brought up all kinds of feelings and memories though as it happened right around the anniversary of the Columbine attack.

My mom picked up this Jumperoo at a local consignment shop for Eli. He absolutely loves it and got the hang of it very quickly!

Micah was walking around Friday night while we were getting ready for a baby shower here on Saturday with a wrench up against his mouth saying “Mustache! Mustache! I got a mustache! Mustache!” It was hilarious…especially with the Handy Manny t-shirt that he was wearing!

Thursday Brianna brought home her ballet costume for her recital this year. I love it! I think it is so beautiful! We have really lucked out…since she started I think her class has managed to have the most beautiful costumes. I can’t wait to see her in it on stage! It makes me such a proud mama!

This mess turned into an awesome luau themed baby shower. The mama-to-be loves ukelele music so I immediately thought of a luau when I started planning her shower. It came together perfectly! Everyone had a great time, especially the parents-to-be, which is the most important thing!

Micah made it through his first year of Sunday school. He loved going to “school” and asked all week long when it would be “school day” again. He learned a lot this year and experienced time in a classroom which is really good for him. I’m hoping to get him into preschool next year so it was great training! They had their closing on Sunday which is always a hoot!
And I leave you with one final picture…we wore ourselves out this week and it’s not over yet. One more party for Brianna’s 1st Communion on Saturday and then we get to rest for a while! While I love throwing a good party, I’m going to be all partied out for a while!
