Megan's Birthday Week

The other major news event around here is Megan celebrated her 7th birthday recently.  She had a "Frozen" party and invited some of her friends over for a garden party.  The weather cooperated perfectly and everyone had a good time.  Megan also got her ears pierced for the first time (her choice by the way,) and as you can see in the pictures below it was a rather painful experience.

Home Sweet Home

After 2 1/2 years we finally moved back into our house…and it was glorious.  The house looked great, the yard looked great, everything looked great.  My Uncle and Aunt had been watching the house for us while we were away and they did a wonderful job.  We are so thankful for all of their help.  Anyway, the kids were busy as soon as they got back.  They've been outside and active practically every day.  They both went to a nature camp out at the nature center, Ben learned to ride the skateboard, both kids got new bikes, Ben made a sailboat to race in his Cub Scout den, and Nana came to help us unpack and settle in.  We even managed to find time to drive north and spend an afternoon at the beach.  It's good to be home.
