perfect weather

The weather has been OUTSTANDING! I love it. I have enjoyed being outside with Ethan and Merci. On thursday I took Ethan on a walk to the park. This was the first time I took only him! He had fun swinging, sliding and just wondering free.

Friday Merci had off school. It was parent teacher conferences, and we got her 1st report card! It was pretty good. Lots of S's and check marks. She had a lot to work on...like not going to the nurse EVERY day. You see Merci knows how to get around the rules in ALL situations. She is a girl who knows how to get what she wants. ( I always pray that this is used for only good things later in life!) But other than that she is right on track or above! We went to the park again!


Saturday I took the kids out bright and early because it was supposed torain ALL day (it never did rain). We raked and jumped in the leaves. It was fun!



Still no car..it is actually in process right now. I will update tommorw=)

Can you believe Friday will be mine and Josh's 5 year anniversary (kind of a big thought for a 24 year old). I am so excited. I think we have decided to go to Niagara Falls. Only 4 1/2 more days=) Like most of you know Josh and I have NEVER been away together. Our honeymoon was a night at the hotel where our reception was, and when chekout is 11 am and your reception goes until like midnight..it wasn't much fun! So this is BIG!

That's awesome Donna! You and Josh deserve to get away and have some time for just the 2 of you. If you need a babysitter, I'm almost always available on the weekends. The pictures of Merci and Ethan are simply adorable! Merci looks like a little lady! I hope you guys find an awesome place to stay at for your first official honeymoon!

Hey Donna here are those secret shopper links for you:

http://www.ssanet.com/

The other one I couldnt find my link to. I dont have the book mark saved... I only know the link when the lady emails me a shop. Im sure if you googled "Shop'N'Chek" something would come up. Thats the companies name.

Whoa, Merci DOES look old in that picture in the leaves. When did she turn 8?

Okay, I will keep checking in with you through this site occasionally. I love all the photos. The children are getting so BIG. I wish you lived closer so we could visit.

I am glad that you and Josh were able to get away for your anniversary. It doesn't seem like 5 years!! Great pictures of the falls. You look great.
