-Do flips
-Gives great hugs
-Serve as a pillow
-Run really fast
-Serve as a landing pad for big jumps
-Hides well

Thanks a ton Alex!

Favorite New Macy Picture

As we were strolling through Eagle, I thought of my maternity photo shoot with Ben Dodds two years ago before Macy was born. I asked her to just sit down for a moment and this is what happened! What a sweetheart she is and what a blessing we are to have her in our lives. 

Do they look like siblings? Sometimes I think yes and other times I think no. Both are just around 2 years old in these pictures.

EVHS Prom 2014

Eagle Valley's prom night is always a fun one for me as a Young Life leader as I get to see so many girls enjoying themselves and spending time together. I was able to visit some friends as they got ready to go and they looked beautiful! Many runners and YL'ers in these pics. 

The Prom Committee did a great job setting up the dance that I had to brag on it a bit. It is not like my own prom, where there was dinner and a grand ballroom, but it is awesome and improving each year. EVHS does not include dinner, just a fancy dance. It is held in an airplane hanger at the Vail Valley Jet Center. The Committee did a great job transforming the space! What a great theme as well! 

I had to show off my "flapper" dress from freshmen year of high school. We had a Roaring 20's theme for homecoming that year and my mom made me this dress. I have kept it in our costume boxes since we have been married and it has actually made many appearances. This night may have been the best though! I loved getting to wear it again as a chaperone!

Kite Flying & Birthday Gifts

We had a few more pictures of birthday gifts that I wanted to share! 

One special gift that Macklin and Macy were excited to pick out…kites! These are their first kites and they used Grandpa and Mema's birthday money to buy them! Macklin just looked at it in the box until the weather was suitable for flying and daddy had time to take him while I was coaching. 

Showing off all of their birthday cards. 

Macy's New Tupperware Party Set. Who likes it more…Daniel or Macy?

Easter 2014

While Easter is really celebrated as Resurrection Sunday in our home, it is fun to enjoy the spring time traditions. We were able to enjoy the very important day and enjoy our friendships at the same time! Praise Jesus for conquering death!
