Jake's Preschool Graduation May 2009


Jake graduated from pre-school in May. He loved his class and is already missing his teachers Mrs. Begnal and Mrs. Woodson. They were able to do so many fun activities this year. Jake told us the other day that he is ready for Kindergarten. He said that he learned it all in pre-school. I can't believe how time flys by! I was always told that, now I believe it!

Katelynd & Lindsay Volleyball


The Volleyball season just ended for Katelynd and Lindsay. They did great this year. In November they will be joining the Cottleville League and they are so excited to play over wintertime.

Boys Like to Have fun too!


All the boys got to hang out and play in the yard. To bad the lawn didn't get mowed! This was at the Tilman's April 2009.

Lolly Time!


While we were in Illinois Jason was able to get some good pics of the kids.

Long Lost Friends Found in Illinois


My husband always teases me for going on facebook to communicate with my friends. But a few months ago I ran across a close friend from Las Vegas. Jason and I met the Tilmans when we first got married. Jason and Scott ended up working together for a few years at Stewart & Sundell a commercial concrete and curbing company. Tina and I became close friends and always had play days with our kids. Tina and I think it has been about 5 years since we have had any contact. When we went out to visit last month we picked up right where we left off. We are so blessed to have good friends. They only live 4 hours away and are actually in our temple district. Thank you for a wonderful weekend Tilman's we had alot of fun.

Sealing Dress


Our friends from Las Vegas just adopted their second child Maddie. The adoption was just finalized this month. They will be sealing her to the family in July. Maddie just turned 1 year this month. We are so excited for their family. They are such an example of patience and kindness. They have experienced so much with the adoption process. This is the Temple Sealing dress I made for little Maddie Schaumburg. We thought the dress wasn't going to make it in time. It was lost in the mail for a week and I thought I was going to have to make another one to send out. After lots of prayers that it would be found, Stacy called with the good news that they received the package. Congratulations Schaumburg family! We love you!

Birthday Time!


Katelynd had her 11th Birthday in May. We had our neighbors come over and had Katelynd's favorite meal Navajo Taco's. We still can't believe she is going to junior high this year. She is becoming such a young woman.

5th Grade Violin Concert


Katelynd had her 5th grade violin concert in April this year. She had a lot of fun. As you can tell she was concentrating really hard on a perfect performance.

Jake up a Tree with no Ladder!


Katelynd and Lindsay came running in the house screaming "Jake is going to fall." We all ran out side to find Jake at the top of our neighbor's tree. Jake had put gloves on, a hoodie and pulled his socks to his knees to protect himself from the rough pinetree climb. I had to get a picture of it before he got in trouble!

About Me

Just a little web site to keep our family and friends informed. Out in our new Hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. We just all keep growing up and getting older. I am a mother of 4 fun loving active children. They sure keep me busy and I love every minute of it. We all have adjusted well out here in Missouri. Thank goodness we haven't seen any tornadoes though. Jason is very busy with Chiropractic school so I have been put in charge of the blog. I think he did that on purpose to teach me how to use the computer. Our family is so very blessed we love just to be with each other and having a little fun. Now we just try to get Dad to talk about other things besides Gross Anatomy and how our body works. But we love him all the same. We think of all of you often and miss you all(now i talk like a missourian).
