Recent exciting updates!

My godson is officially walking - taking his first ever steps yesterday!!!  Way to go Jamie!  To add to the excitement of that, Jamie’s mom (my bestie) landed a full time job!  We celebrated with a girls night out (long overdue)! :D

Annika had her last day at Lilliput Land Nursery School, and had her graduation on Friday.  She loved showing off her papa, nana and baby sister Selena to her friends and showing them where she played and learned over the last 9 months.

To My Dad

Happy Father’s Day to the best dad in the whole world!  Thank you for always being there and always want to help us out with anything we need, and thank you for being such a great “papa” to Annika and Selena, and Mavie!  The perfect role model for the girls to grow up with!

We love you soooo much!!

Selena’s Dedication Weekend

We had a beautiful dedication day for Selena.  She and Annika were little angels today, and James and I are so proud of our girls.  The dedication that Major Abbott gave to Selena was beautiful, and my second cousin, Aaron, held the Flag for us, which was the perfect extra special touch.

And after the service, it was nice to have everyone back at BJAMS for Greek food!
