Catching up...

This summer/fall the kids decided they wanted to join in the fun of the Ice Bucket Challenge.  
Here are a few pictures.  

Reyna had a birthday and turned 11 on October 14.  She got her beloved Messi soccer jersey, a new soccer ball, got to go out to dinner and have Cheesecake to celebrate.  

Chase had a birthday and turned 5 years old on December 10.  We celebrated as a family at Chuck E. Cheese with pizza and games.  He wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake, so this is what he got.  We also made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cookies for Chase's school.  He got lots of Lego's (which is the only thing he wanted).

We adopted a dog.  His name is Brownie.  He came to our Humane Society from California.  He is 8 years old and weigh about 10 pounds.  He is a good dog and the kids are excited we finally own a dog.  He has been fun having in our home.  
We had a Christmas party through our church.  Mark and I both had responsibilities assigned to us to prepare for the party.  I was asked (with 2 weeks until the party) to make centerpieces for at least 37 tables.  Here is what I came up with.  All the "trees" were different colors.  Madeline helped me make them.  The Santa came and the kids got to visit with him.  Chase asked for "Lego's" and Reyna just sat on his lap and didn't ask for anything :)
