Little miss Rachel turns 18

Rachel's actual birthday isn't until Tuesday but we celebrated on the day after Thanksgiving. It seems like just yesterday Rachel was a little smiling girl playing with her Little Tike's beauty Salon or singing me her ABC's while taking bath. She has grown into a strong, brave, beautiful young woman and I am so proud of her. She is a wonderful sister and daughter and I cant wait to see what life brings her next. Love you Rachel!!

Thanksgiving 2008

We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year and had lots of family and friends over for the day. We started cooking the turkey at about 8 am and had dinner at about 1:00pm. Nancy's mom Jean brought her famous rolls, Melissa brought a fabulous broccoli salad, Mom brought Yams and Ashleigh brought the pumpkin pies. We had plenty of food and lots of leftovers for the next few days snacking. Both Mike and Cameron wanted a whole leg but only Cameron was able to polish the whole thing off. Morgan had such huge plate of food I had to take a picture, she only ate half of it though and put it in the microwave for later!It was a nice, leisurely day and we ended it by watching "Fred Claus", it was super cute. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy 18th Kim!!

Last weekend was Kim's 18th birthday and we all got together in Yelm to celebrate. It's hard to believe Kim has grown from the onry little girls she was to the beautiful young woman she has become. I made her a scrapbook that starts at birth and goes until this year, ending with her Senior picture. She seemed really happy to get it and said she plans on showing all her friends. Of course no get together is complete without Jim and Deja hanging out together, there is a bond between those two that started when she was tiny. Morgans friend Danielle came along and every time I took a picture she made some kind of face so I figured I'd go ahead and post one. Happy birthday Kim!!

Some days there are rainbows

We were all amazed by this beautiful rainbow that occurred on Saturday afternoon. Morgans friend Danielle pointed out that it looked really cool outside, it was kind of "goldy" looking. So we all went out to look and the beauty of the colors and the rainbow inspired us to take a few pictures. I thought it was cool take pictures of the girls taking pictures of the rainbow with their phones, it ended up being Morgans favorite picture. The pictures don't really do justice to how cool the colors looked, nor do they show how bright the rainbow really was.
