Summer fun

 Took the girls to see Shane & Shane as well as Johnny Diaz at the KXOJ summer concert series.  It was really a fun evening.  These two were the prettiest girls there!
 Pre-concert entertainment for Matt & Cassidy.  Looks like a mean battle, doesn't it?

New blog and new pics

As if I'm not already a terrible blogger, Matt and I have started a new blog.  The link is listed above.  It will be less about pictures and more about the newest adoption journey on which we are embarking. 
Here's some photos of recents happenings.                                    
 Our pretty girls on Easter Sunday.

 My girls holding hands as we leave the baseball game.  Still special!
 Courtney has really taken a liking to going to baseball games!
Courtney was inducted into the National Junior Honor Society recently.  She looked so nice, I just had to take her picture.  We are so proud of her.

FFD Celebration 2011

PF Chang's for dinner!

Cassidy said it was an awesome day!

Sixth forever family day!

I found a new scrapbooking tool. Gotta have fun with it. These are two of my favorite pics (I love them all) from our first couple of days with Cassidy in 2005. The pic on the left was a trip to see the Yangtze River. The one on the right was one of the very first smiles we saw on our Cassidy. They were for her funny sister, of course!

Happy Day, family!

Blizzard 2011

Yes, folks, we really had another blizzard! 13 inches of snow is the official, I think. Lots of days of school missed. Matt even stayed home and worked from here a few days because we couldn't get the cars out. As usual, my pictures are in random order. My personal favorite snow related activity just happened to show up first. Tootsie warming
After it had warmed up a little, the Cassidys made a nice snowman.

Crazy family

More crazy family
Knee deep for Matt!

Unbelievable weather here. As of today, we've missed 7 consecutive days of school and it is snowing again. I am thankful for this warm house today when the high temperature is forecast to be 15 degrees.

Victory Gymnastics gymnastics meet

I can't help but post gymnastics pictures! We all work hard to get this girl to these meets. It seems that most of her meets are in OKC. Don't know why, but that's the way it is. We had to get up at 4:45 am on a Saturday to get to this one. I took a picture of Courtney sleeping in the car, but I decided she would not appreciate me sharing it.

Here's Cassidy waiting for the judges to give her the okay to start her floor routine.Beam

Now, I must tell you what a tough kiddo Cassidy is. She complained of a sore throat before we left the house. We didn't think too much about it, because she didn't really act sick. After she finished her last event, her coaches brought her to us saying she wasn't feeling well. She had a fever and was feeling really nasty. I can't believe she was able to finish the entire meet. We visited the after hours clinic when we got home for the diagnosis ~ strep. I can't even walk straight when I have strep, so I was dually impressed with her flips and such!
