Party, Party, Party!

Gavin had a wonderful Birthday party!  There were 26 kids and even more adults there.  I had set up an obstacle course, but it turned into more of a war zone, which was ok since it was an army party!  

Ready to open his presents!


Pinata time... there is one there I promise! 

Everyone gathering up the pinata goodies!

Gavin and his cousins, Hayden and Nathan

Our Family!
Can't Believe my baby is 6!  Time is flying by way too fast!!!

Camo Cupcakes!

For Gavin's 6th Birthday party I ordered his cake from a local bakery, The Butler's Pantry.  I had called in the order and told her about how many guests and she suggested a size...Well when I went to pick up the cake, I knew it was no where near big enough.  So I had to come home and make some camo cupcakes to go with it.  I watch "Cake Boss" all the time and I am in awe of what they can do with cakes.  I can't even make a plain sheet cake and decorate it cute.  I am just no good at it!  haha  But for my little boy I attempted to make these cupcakes here is how they turned out.

He didn't care.  He had a wonderful time!  And it tasted great!!!

4th of July Fun!

Since the 4th was on Sunday we started the day at church.  Every 1st Sunday at our church we have lunch, then an early service following that so we have the rest of the evening off.  We came home and rested all afternoon, lazy on the couch watching movies on the wii through netflix.  That evening we went to Talco to the fireworks show.  We met up with a lot of friends and enjoyed hot dogs and watermelon.  It was great watching Gavin watch the fireworks.  I took a ton of pictures, here are just a few...

VBS Highlights 2010

Gavin had 2 weeks of VBS.  The first week was with my parents.  Here are a couple of pictures taken at the closing program.  They had an Egyptian theme.  He really had a blast.

Week 2...

Here are a few pictures of some of the decorations my friend Brandi and I did.  (We worked together on the music this year, and decorated the stage and helped to finish one of the classrooms.

Our theme this year was "Soul Survivors on Danger Island"

Some of our teens who did the puppet shows this year.

Full house!  We had over 100 almost every night.  We had 113 one night, and for the closing program we had around 200.

 7 Foot Candy Bar...the one who brought the most visitors won the candybar.  The kids were so excited!

The Pre-School /Kindergarten class performing the songs they had learned.

(Part of the 1st-4th grade class)  I was sitting on the front row, directing the songs so I couldn't get them all in the picture.

1/2 of the 5th-High School class...

...the other half!

We had an awesome week of VBS.  
Several kids came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and that is what it is all about!!!
