Reflections Award Ceremony!

Kia entered some artwork into the Reflections contest at school a few months ago. She won first place for her age group in the visual art category. We went to the school assembly when they presented the awards. I think she had some mixed emotions. She seemed excited and proud and yet a little shy and embarrased. She wouldn't hold the flowers until the ceremony was over and everyone was gone. I'm so proud of her!

I gave Kia a bouquet of pink roses! She loves them. She cut them and placed them in a vase all on her own!

Kia with her trophy and her prize winning reflections artwork. The theme was "Diversity" Wesley holding the duplicate trophy ordered by mistake. It has Kia's name on it so they gave it to her even though she already had one.

My 5 year old son, Wesley G!

My baby turned 5 on January 26th. I took hin out for lunch after preschool, Daddy took him out to Joes Crab Shack with Aunt Manda (it was her b-day on the 19th) and then we had a family party on the 28th. Wesley got some good gifts that include a Hot Wheels track with cars, a transformer helmet that is very life like, transformer play-doh set and a $5 bill that he has yet to spend! Wesley is such a cute little guy when he wants to be! Happy Birthday Wesley! WE love you!

Optimus Prime helmet. Thanks uncle Paul!

My 7 year old daughter, Kia

Kia's birthday is on Tuesday the 17th, but she had her friend party yesterday. It was Rapunzel theme. We made paper lanterns and played pin the hair on Rapunzel. It was a lot of fun!

Spencer putting together Kia's Legos she got for her birthday. Such a nice brother!

Kia got this bag for her birthday. It came with markers so she can color it herself.

My 9 year old, Spencer

I can't believe I am the mother of a 9 year old boy! I still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday, but my how time flys!

Poor kid :( Only one friend came to his party.

Spencer received his Wolf rank in the Cub Scouts. There was also a pin for me that he pinned on my shirt. I am also the Assistant den leader for the Bears. I am now truly an "den mother" as Spencer is in my den now.

Halloween 2011

Kia went to a birthday/halloween party as "Jessie" from Toy Story. She later changed her costume to an "x-ray girl."

We had Grandma Woodruff over to help carve pumpkins. Matt has been to the dentist since and now has a new tooth!

School parade.

Harman Ward Halloween Trunk or Treat and Chili cook off. I made spicy Turkey chili. It was the first one to get eaten up, but didn't win :( They judged the costumes by age goup. Ella won most adorable for her age group.
