7th Grade Award Ceremony

 Last week one of Mariah's teachers called to let us know that Mariah would be receiving an award on Tuesday May 22nd. We were all happy to surprise her and attend. Mariah was shocked when they announced that she was recognized as an outstanding 7th grade English student.
 Her teacher said she won the award for her organizational skills, work ethics, and original ideas. She was so happy and very surprised that we were all there.
 I am so proud of her and how hard she has worked this year.!

A Busy Saturday

 This week has been crazy. Work is so busy, school is winding down, Caeline was on her class trip for three days and we had dance pictures this weekend. Kianna had all her pictures taken on Saturday.
When we got home the girls were hot and headed for the pool. Aunt Jodi and Aunt Pam bought new cameras and both had to take pictures with their new "toys"
 The girls were very happy to accomidate them and pose for many pictures.
 They love to jump off the wall at the back of the pool.
 Jumping in
 They love being in the water and Kianna has become a fish.
Back on Sunday for all of Caeli and Mariah's pictures for dance.

Caiti and Stephen's Wedding

When we picked the girls up from school on Friday they all went to the salon and got manicures and pedicures.
Saturday morning Caiti went to the hair salon at 8:00. Mariah and Kianna met her there and Caeli and I arrived a little later. Everyone got their hair styled for the wedding.
Caiti was so nervous. She was very chatty. I was glad we got to spend this time together.
When our hair was done, we headed to the church.
Mariah helped Caiti put her make-up on and Caeli helped Kianna. Then it was time to put on the dresses.
Putting on the finishing touches.
The beautiful girls!
Our family picture
Caiti made a beautiful bride.
It seemed like forever until the ceremony started. There was a ring bearer, but he was the 2 year-old nephew of the groom and he went down the aisle at a much faster pace than the flower girl.
Caeli was next, followed by Mariah.
Jodi gave the bride away. She was radiant and looked so happy.

Mariah was an amazing maid of honor. She helped Caiti and I was so proud of her.
