How time flies.....

Just got a new scanner. Still trying to figure it out.
(This does not look at all like I wanted it to.)

The Graduate

She spotted us in the crowd.

Nikita and her girlfriend, Christina.
Andre was all ready to graduate. My parents came down for the big day.
Aren't we the proud parents?

Renaissance Faire

We spent a beautiful Saturday up near Ogden at the Utah Renaissance Festival and Fantasy Faire. We all dressed up and had a great time. We've been going to these things since Nikita was a baby. The kids love it. And of course it's one of Jim's favorite pasttimes! We met up with our good friends, Kathi & Larry Lewis and their kids, all of who've never been to a Ren Faire before.
And Ivan & Andre did something that NONE of us have EVER done:

Andre wasn't sure he actually wanted to do it, but was really glad that he did.
Now they both have something to brag about at school on Monday.

Max's Gift

I know this is a week late, but.....
This is what I found outside the front door on Mother's Day morning.
I know you can't see it all, but he actually wrote "Mommy". (That was my favorite part.)
Pretty sweet from a 14 year-old boy, isn't it?

Last night, Nikita and her friend, Christina went to the Sadie Hawkin's dance at school. Can you tell what the theme was by how they're dressed?
If you guessed the '80s, you're right!
They looked so cute! Of course it helped that Nikita had a professional 80s relic shopping with her.
And her date, Bobby, didn't even mind the pink shirt, collar up, and tucked in with a belt!
He was one brave boy!

They had a great time.
According to Nikita, "More fun than Prom!"
