Camping at home

What do you do.... top off....

...the very first swim day of the summer???

You camp... your trailer... home!!!

And then...

...the girls go inside and read and sleep in the comfy bed!!!
And in the morning...

...the girls get up early and have devotions together. Perfect!

My 39th.

Mom and Dad came to CA to celebrate, and since it was just past Dad's birthday, we went to Hollywood and had Pink's hotdogs in his honor (he loves hotdogs - and his dad grew up in Hollywood).

My brood

Have you ever seen something so cute, waiting for her hotdog??

Then we went to The Getty. Very educational indeed!

My favorite b-day festivity was going to South Coast Winery for dinner. 

My beautiful mom and me. I love my mom!!!

Basically, I have the greatest parents in the universe. Period.

My two favorite (grown) men ever.

I love them.

I love him.

I love eating out!!! Thank you for treating the entire family, Mom and Dad! 

Will ordered me this fabulous cake. And put a princess on it.

You can NEVER have too much cake.

We celebrated Dad's birthday on a different night and I made dinner. Dessert was Meringues Chantilly.

My two best birthday friends put on a fabulous spread for me - as always!!!

I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I love Kim and Julia! I am thankful for wonderful friends. God is good.

This is how we roll...

This is a school day at our house....

... on a rainy day in April. Rain = cozy = art time (and baking time.)

Easter, 2012

Getting ready for Sunrise Service was not super-fun for everyone. ;)

Easter brunch table

I love my dining room!

These sticky buns were to die for.

Our Easter chickadee

The day got easier for Levi! There's the sunny boy I love!

Like every holiday, Mama cooks and everyone else plays games.

Wow... am I blessed, or what?! A risen Savior AND an amazing family!

Easter dinner table

This Southern Comfort Coconut Cake is a keeper. YUM.

Daddy and his boys

We finally got around to coloring eggs a day or two after Easter. :)

CCCA Talent Showcase!

Zane performed The Beatles' "Blackbird" BEAUTIFULLY at our homeschool ISP's talent show in April. He had performed before, but only at his great grandmother's memorial service. There were a LOT more people in this audience. We were so proud of his flawless performance and - more importantly - his humility.

Belt Test

March 30, 2012 was yet another belt test - this time, Titus and Levi. Here they are with their new belts.

He makes me smile...

... with his own personal style!
