Marji turns 90!


Grandma Marj turns 90 years old today (1/29) and we celebrated last night with a big family party filled with a whole lot of love! This amazing woman is the matriarch of this huge family and is basically the glue that keeps us all together. She has a love for family that surpasses most and always looks forward to the next big event - usually at her house. For a change of pace, Matt & Ryan hosted everyone in their beautiful new home and Uncle Julio's catered the food. The cake was absolutely gorgeous & ginormous and delicious too. All of Marj's dear friends and family showed up to celebrate. I think the cousins had the most fun out of everyone. It was a literal playground of toys and friends... Braxton was a little under the weather but managed to have a little bit of fun:)

Western Day at All Saints...


Western day brought out the Cowboy & Cowgirl in all the kids in the Pre-K program at All Saints. Braxton was super stoked about wearing his cowboy garb and it looks like everyone else was too. All the classes gathered in the gym where they had lunch and different stations to "play cowboy" at... 

 Sister came to watch too...

Our rodeo day...


Oh my gosh! We had the biggest day at the rodeo we have ever had and stayed about 6 hours looking at animals, playing with animals and being ANIMALS. These 6 kids were a tornado of a bunch and I'm sure the sugar from the funnel cake, cotton candy and soda didn't add to it - HA! They jumped and played all over tractors, ran the stables, rode ponies, held goats, pet rabbits, and this list just keeps on going... I'll let the pictures tell the story. Anyways, the only thing we didn't do was ride the rides at the carnival... so we will be going back - so stay tuned!
