Beads & More Beads!!!!

I actually got to host a House Party a couple of weeks ago!  We were so excited to get it!!  The product was Perler Beads.  I had never heard of them but am so glad I found out about them.  The kids LOVE Perler Beads!!  It's a great thing for them to do on a rainy day or any day!

House Party & Perler Beads were SO generous!!  They gave us a huge bucket that isn't even on the market yet just for hosting the party.  There were enough prepackaged beads for 15 kids to do 2 projects and even a small pack for a door prize.  The kids loved it!  They have bigger beads for the smaller kids although we didn't get any of those.  We made the projects and decorated cupcakes. However, I think the kids had the most fun just playing together!!

Fun in the Sun!...stinkin' hot in the 90s mid-September sun...grumble, blah, blah...

Well, we're starting to adjust although we're not in our house yet!!  The kids are doing well in school and we're getting on a schedule.  We should be moving into our new house next weekend.  Here's a picture of the empty living room:

 Here are the kids fishing this afternoon:
 

Here is a party we went to and there were friends there that play GREAT!  The kids had alot of fun swimming in their lake & running around with old & new friends!  Here's a few pics:


We really miss everyone in Virginia and just the area in general.  We loved the views and the great weather!  We can't wait to come up there to visit next month!!!  Love ya!!

We're Moving...again!



Yes, it's official! After months of debate, we've decided moving back is the best thing to do. We LOVE it up here, but work-wise, we need to move back. We are going to miss our friends up here soooo much, but we'll be coming back to visit often!!
Here's some pics from a party some friends had. Shelby is in a pie eating contest & Aly is playing a game with some little ones from our hall:




Catching Up!

We've had a crazy summer, especially June! July was much more laid back. As soon as school was out, Shelby & Denver went to the Keys for a week with family to fish. Did they take pictures? Only 2!!! Since it was a disposable camera I don't have anything to show you. Alyson & I went with some friends to Myrtle Beach! I was pleasantly suprised! Did I take pictures? Of course:


 















Then we came back & went to our District Convention:














We've still got a month to go but we've got some news....

Shelby's Music Program

Circuit Assembly Pics!

Here's some pictures from our Circuit Assembly 4/2 & 3 in Salisbury, NC. What a wonderful program! The emphasis on maintaining your spirituality was just what I needed! The kids did great! Especially Shelby! Alyson is only 4, so she still has a hard time with the long days.

Shelby's First Talk!!!!

video
I was in such a rush to get this online, I forgot to do anything else! Yes, Shelby did great & he was sooo excited! He wasn't even nervous! Afterwards, we had some of his friends(and their parents) over for ice cream cake. It was crazy, but he loved it! Denver's parents came up & my dad did too! We were all so proud! We hope this is the first of many!
