Starting School

Its been a while for me to add things on here! I have been very busy. Breanna starts Willow Canyon and Hannah will be in third grade! I was blessed with a job at Countryside Elementary for 3rd Grade. This summer we didn't do much but hang out. It went fast. The last couple of weeks we went to California to go see the Carlats. There we were able to go to Six Flags and the beach! It was a great time. Then the last week we went to Rainbow Campground with the Reyes. It was Rico and Jamey and their kids and Sabina and their kids! It was so much fun! It was beautiful up there! I got stung numerous times by a hornet. That wasn't fun! I will be posting pictures but I thought I would write something. God Bless! Take care

Spring Break

Spring Break was a blast this year. We first celebrated it with Paulyna's birthday. We (Jamey, me, Paulyna, Danielle and Brea) were able to go see Kutless, Stellar Kart, Disciple and Esterlyn. We were wild and crazy praising the Lord! It is so nice to be able to go to concerts with your kids and both enjoy them! We were able to get VIP tickets and was able to be in on questions and answers. It was nice to hear them and how they were lead by God in their ministries!

Then we (Jim, me, Brea, Hannah and Taylor) went to good old California. We left on Tuesday and came back on Thursday. We went and visited Amanda, Charlie, Sam, Danielle, Max and Will. It was a fast trip but it was a blast. Jeremy, Korrine, TJ, Jarrod, Jonah, Tytus, and Grace were already there and we were able to say the night with them. It was crowded but not to bad. It wa actually fun having everyone there. Maria and Makayla were able to come for a little visit and hang out to at the pool. It was very nice!

The picture of the three girls trying to eat crackers was a challenge by the guys. They said if they could eat 6 saltine crackers then we would pay them $50. The only one trying was Brea. She was laughing so hard she sprayed crackers all over the place.

We went to Hollywood on Wednesday. Jimmy was a little freaked out about the Spiderman and I was about the Joker. It was fun for the kids though. We also went the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.

Thursday we got up and went to the beach. That was nice. It was a little cold though! The kiddos didn't seem to mind. It was funny because when we tried to leave Will didn't want too! He threw himself down and Brea picked him up and he was not happy. It was cute. He was very happy just diggin his way throught the sand!

We hated to leave. It was just a relaxing time and we enjoyed our visit! Now were are at the end of our spring break...boo hoo!

Spring Break with the Carlats


Saturday, January 24, 2009


The first set of pictures is when the kiddos (the Carlats stayed with us). We also had the Reyes Family. It was a great weekend. The only one we didn't have was Sammy. We had a great weekend! The next set of pictures is when the girls went to Karen's Creamery. We went to Michaels. The girls found some outfits and they put them on. They were acting goofy.

The pictures of Danielle and Hannah went over to Makayla's house. Maria painted their faces. They turned out really cute.

The last group of pictures was the NFC Champions! We went with Jeremy and Rico. We were able to sit next to Heather and Nick. They saw another side of Jimmy. Jimmy was so excited! He was running up and down the isle hi-fiving everyone! He even stood on the railing hi-fiving everyone! I told him he was going to get us kicked out! It was fun though. He was very funny. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

In Show Low and HAPPY NEW YEARS!

Oh BOY! It was cold in Show Low. I now know why the Lord has me in Surprise. I love the warm weather! We went and seen my sisters and parents. They all live up there! We were able to go on Monday and come on December 31. It was very nice. Carie's husband Kirk had his sister come up too! We all were able to spend Christmas together! It was such a blessed time. It was really nice! The kids seen snow on the ground. There wasn't much but they were able to see it.

On December 31, 2008 we went over to Jamey's and Rico house and brought in the New Year! We played games, ate, ate, and ate. About a half hour before midnight, Jeremy lead us in worship and we prayed! We had a great time. The kids were suprised because the Carlats came home and was able to spend it with us too! That was great!

The last picture was from the Cardinals game for the playoff. I forgot my camera. That was a bummer! We tailgated with Rico and Jeremy. We played scrabble of course. That is a new game for them! It was really fun too!

Christmas Week!

On December 21, 2008, Hannah had her Christmas play at Calvary Chapel Surprise. She was a star. She had three lines in the play. She did a great job! I was so proud of her. All the kids worked really hard and did a great job. Later that evening, we went to the Christmas dinner at Calvary Chapel Surprise! Jimmy was able to call in late so he was able to come. It was so nice to have him with us!

The next set of pictures are on December 23rd. We were able to go to the Nutcracker Ballet at Symphony Hall. Jimmy actually went with us too! It was really nice. Brea and Jim stuck it out and didn't complain once. It was really beautiful. Then the last few pictures are from Christmas. We were very blessed! It was a great day!

This weekend has been another fun weekend. Breanna had her Christmas Party for Calvary Chapel Surprise. She said she had a blast. Hannah went to a Convalescent home. They walked there and sang on the way. The elder people loved it! When they got back they roasted marshmellows and had cake at Lynn's house. It was nice! It was also a beautiful night. We couldn't of asked for a more perfect night! Thank you Lord!

Girls Scout Field Trip at Desert Botanical Gardens

We went yesterday to the Desert Botanical Gardens right next to the Phoenix Zoo. The girls had a great time! Here are some pictures of our field trip. The glass was beautiful! Some artist made the sculptures. They were absolutely gorgeous! It was very interesting. They shipped each piece and put one by one together. They also light up at night! It would have been nice to see!

These pictures are not in any particular order. This is something new to me. I have been trying to set this up for quite sometime. Thanks to Tanya she has helped me out a lot. She actually made some modifications for me so it looks pretty. As I get to know the system, it will become easier. I just thought I would add these pictures so you can see what we have been up to. Stay tune..Brea is now in Volleyball Club and I will be posting her fancy moves. Hannah will be doing things with the girls scouts. I will keep you posted. Thank you! God Bless You!
