Ring Bearer and Flower Girls

The Wedding of Kyle and Jennifer McCracken

My cousin Kyle, his new bride Jennifer, and my little BIG brother Daniel.

Uh Oh!!!! Don't do that in public.

As soon as we arrived at the reception she was gone. It had been a very long and tiring day.

The wedding was right in the middle of her nap time.

Sleeping Beauty Awakens!!!

Time to have some fun and eat!!!

These are all photos of the kids after they were finished getting ready and now waiting for the pictures and photos.

Wouldn't be a picture of Matthew without on of his faces!!

Have to have a picture with everyone!!! Here we go!!!

My Grandmother

June 2009

Just being us
Abigail likes for everyone to match sometimes. They are cute.

Matthew has now crossed over. In this photo he has lost one tooth but now he has actually lost two.

Matthew always makes the craziest faces.

Caught Brown Handed!!!!
I was wondering where Gabbie had gotten off to because I didn't hear her and you know something is up when that is the case.
This was an Egg and Diary free cake that I had cooked and we ate some for dinner and I guess she didn't get enough!!!!

To Egypt and The Park

Visiting Ancient Egypt

We took a trip to see King Tut and some other Pharaohs from Egypt's Mighty Reign.
We could not take any photos inside of coarse. We really enjoyed being able to see in real life what we have been studying for the last year. We watched a short movie and in it they showed a picture of Ramses the Great and the Pharaoh that was over Egypt in the time of the Exodus!!!
How amazing it was to see the face that looked at Moses and defied God numerous times!!!
My friend Janice and her children: Jared, Jacob, Jenna, and Jada went with us and we had a great time. We did get a lot looks having 7 children and 2 adults.

A Trip to Piedmont Park in Downtown Atlanta
This park is amazingly beautiful. It reminds me of a miniature Central Park. There are no cars allowed in the park and it is very peaceful and clean, and it's in Downtown ATL!!

This is the play area for the children and it is NICE!!! All of the equipment sits on a solid rubber material. No splinters or sand in your shoes.

She's not getting out anytime soon. This would even be great for older handicapped children.

We took a picnic lunch and ate in the beautiful outdoors.

This is Abigail and her friend Jacob.

Here she go--------es!!!

How cool is this. I love our camera because when I press the button to take the the picture it actually takes it right then. What a concept!!!

We also saw a real duck egg in a nest.

Here are we have geese with their goslings. They were cute but they made a big mess on the sidewalks, if you know what I mean. We have to clean off the stroller wheels when we got back to the parking lot.

End of 2008-2009 School Year at the YMCA

Celebrating our Accomplishments

Gabbie is displaying the line up for the events that will take place.
A talent show, concert, and graduation for Kindergartners.
Matthew is performing, with his music class, on the hand bells. They did a great job and Matthew loved this class. The main focus was on music appreciation and recognition.
Abigail and her music class are entering the "stage".Abigail enjoyed her music class as well. She learned how to play the recorder and worked very hard to memorize this piece. They played "The Corn Song" that has a fast tempo and a good many changes. It took a lot of practicing but she did it!!!
Abigail completed 1st grade and is now headed to 2nd grade.
Matthew McDuff graduated from Kindergarten!! And received a certificate of accomplishment and a stuffed bear. He was so cute in his cap and gown.

We can't leave out Gabbie who was soaking up the spot light looking so cute and posing
for the camera.
