Miss Marinne is 9!

Has she changed at all? (Marinne's first day of kindergarten )

Marinne turned 9 on the 15th. The Friday before, we had a friend party which included 13 girls! We went swimming at Steven's then came home for pizza and manicures. The girls even got to dip their hands in parafin wax (hence the bags over their hands). Thanks to Melanie, Amy, and Kami for helping! I couldn't have handled the chaos alone! Marinne's friends thoroughly spoiled her with gifts and money to spend at the mall. I can't believe I am old enough to have a 9 year old! We love you Marinne!

Let the birthday season begin!

Blake turned 7 on Sunday!!! Wow, these kids are growing up fast! He had a friend party and a family party, and next week we get to do it all again for Marinne's birthday. We are blessed to have Blake in our family! He never ceases to amaze us with his deep thoughts! He also received another karate belt, and we are proud of him!

Cindy's Wedding

I was able to go to Utah for my friend Cindy's wedding in May. She was my roommate Freshman year and the two years after. She is a kindred spirit and an amazing person! I was so happy to be there for the sealing. All six of the "original" roommates were there in the temple, so it was a great experience. She was married in the Provo temple, so we got to be right there at our old college stomping grounds. I have wonderful memories of college and was so lucky to have the rommates I did! Congrats, Cindy!!!
