Farewell 2011

 It was an amazing Christmas season!
Here we are at the DFC staff Christmas Party!
 This is one of my favorite people in her Santa suit!

Another favorite little guy,
in Christmas Lego heaven!
Our tree on Christmas morning, Santa left a letter this year!
Christmas morning
Unwrapping the goodness
My carolers
Santa came through!
The view from our deck on Christmas morning.
May 2012 be awesome, God Bless!

Season Summary

It has been awhile since I blogged, so I thought I would catch you up on everything at once.

This is the back of our new house...we back up to a large park which also has an amazing sledding hill.

Here is Parker loving life!

Here is Turner learning to love the cold.

I also decided this year to host my largest Christmas Party ever!

As part of the decor, I found vintage Christmas table cloths to place on each table.

So fun, so affordable!

A great time was had by all!

Last one. I also decided to make a advent calender for the preschoolers that I teach on Sundays.
Here is the start...sorry, no finished picture. (they looked like houses)
Here is a sample of Turner's Super Star board that we made for his preschool.
And, of course, we have had lots of concerts! Here is Shaun singing with Michael Card this holiday!
Here is Turner in our backyard.

And Parker...gotta love Colorado!

Life is good!

Clinical Excellence

 I just had to share!
Yes, I was invited to a beautiful dinner 
to honor the Clincal Excellence Award Winners.
This is the table at Children's Hospital.
 And this was the yummy dessert!

 Here I am with my coworkers from the PACU.
 And with Dr. Handler, our neurosurgeon!

 Norine!...this is who hired me 12 years ago!

 More fun!
 Our entire group!
 At home with the award.
And my new pin.
I love being a nurse!

Soccer, Studying and Sunday School

Wow, it has been awhile since I blogged!
We have been busy with soccer with the boys!
Parker is on the 'Storm Troopers' and Shaun is the coach!
(Turner is very into football at this time)
We have been so lucky to see Daphnie a few days a week,
and we have even had a visit from the penguin, Snowball!

We had a blast at the circus, and the boys got me a pink wig!

I have also been studying for the hardest test
I think I have ever taken...more details later
And, thank you God...I have taken on the joy of
teaching Sunday School!
I love it!
I am with the little guys (Turner's class)

Here are a few of my favorite smiles!

Thanks God for opening so many doors for me!

First Day of School

Wow, that year went fast!
Here is Parker before his first day of 3rd grade!

Here are the boys showing off their new shoes!

In front of Coyote Hills Ele.

Waiting for the bell to ring.

Here is Mrs. Marino, Parker's 3rd grade teacher!

And, I had to throw in some pics of the
new house!


Living room

Back porch looks over a 5 acre
grass park...and
we don't have to mow it!

New growth!

My craft area for the basement!

And the toy area for the boys!

Even the orchid survived the move!

Thank you God for the blessings!
