Cheer competition

Cassie is on her middle schools cheer leading team.  In January they traveled to Burley, Idaho for a local competition against other middle school teams.  The competition was cheer, dance and students.  They did such a good job.  I was a proud mom.  Here are some shots.  

 Winning first place...they were so excited.  After the competition was over, we all went out to lunch in Twin Falls, then we (as a family) stayed the night in a hotel, saw family in Burley and just enjoyed our time swimming, relaxing, shopping and eating.

Happy Birthday, Mark

Today is Mark's 43rd birthday.  I love that man!!  He is the greatest!  The day started out with him working out at Crossfit (one of his many loves), Chase singing his version of the happy birthday song, then off to work.  I brought him treats to share with his friends/co-workers...donuts ;).  He and I got some quiet time away at lunch and tonight will be the family dinner at The Olive Garden.  Presents and chocolate cake to follow.  Happy Birthday, Mark!

Happy Birthday, Madeline

Madeline turned 11 years old on February 21.  It was a Friday and just happened to be Donuts with Dad day at school, so she started the day off with Mark and Chase at her school eating donuts for breakfast.  Is there not a better way to start off a birthday?!  Then at lunch the 5th graders sang to her and she passed out treats and had Wendy's brought to her at lunch.  After school she opened presents, then off to her dads for the week.  So, when she came home we had our family dinner at the Cheesecake factory, went to watch the Idaho Stampede (basketball) and then had lemon cake (her request).  Happy Birthday, Madeline!

catch up...

Does it always seem like I get behind and then have to do a big catch up?  Well, it does to me!!!  So, here we go again.
