Happy Friday!!!!
I am gettin ready for my first exam out of 5 today....
But, I am still posting my FFF!
To see more FFF click HERE!

This week has been a very fun week!
Not only have I been preparing for exams...*snark*
I have been able to spend time with my friend Kate.
Kate left Michigan almost 3 years ago..and it's been almost 2 years since I have seen her.
She has hung out with the kids and I...and with just me...and we have had a great time.

She even went to half price pizza night with us on Monday!!!
My kids love her...and she is their Auntie Kate!

Kate with E!

Kate with F!

Cubbie Awards!

Yesterday E and K finished up a year of the Awana Cubbie's Program!!!
To see what the Cubbie program is, click HERE.
Basically, it is a time to teach kids simple bible stories, simple verses, and bible songs.
They begin as Cubbies and it actually goes through high school, I believe....
So, our boys completed their entire book... learning a verse every week!

E with some of his classmates getting his certificate.

K getting his certificate

This is a picture of the kids all singing...
Yes, they are doing motions to the song...
See what my boys are doing????
Absolutely NOTHING!
In fact, K has his head laid on the rail...and E just stared off
Apparently K does not participate in group activities...
E only participates when he wants...
I'm kinda disappointed in this... but not sure if this is something I should push...

F got to play in the gym during the award ceremony.

Cubbie Bear even showed up!!!!

We are very proud of our boys for finishing their program!!!
If they continue next year they will be in the Sparks program...
F will begin Cubbies in the Fall!

Sunday Dressing Up

The Little Lady is quickly showing momma that she is a girly girl.
We got through numerous changes of clothes a day...
When she does change, she usually changes into a dress...even if it is to go out to play in the mud...
This Minnie Mouse dress she found for me at a mom2mom sale.
She picked it off a rack and ran it over to me... so... I had to buy it...
She has been wearing it around the house for a couple of weeks now...and I finally told her she could wear it outside today.... she was thrilled and even put it in a special spot for this morning.

I dont want to say my kids are camera hogs...
This is what happened after I took her pic...

Ohhh Mom!!!!
Take MY pic too!!!

Wait MOM!!!
You didnt take MY pic!!!

Oh MOM!!!!
Can we take a funny picture???
