Evening Sky

During our rash of 60 degree days, these are pictures of the evening sky! The pink color was absolutely beautiful as it cast it pink hues over the inside of the dining room and kitchen.
Very amazing and beautiful!

We are PROUD parents!!!!

We attended a kindergarten assembly and Gavin received 2 awards, one for finishing his winter packet and the other for Outstanding Thinking Skills. They took Winter semester tests and he has exceeded the Spring scores. So we are just a little proud of him!

For those of you squeemish peep-- please ignore the below picture!!!!
Gavin and I attended a home and garden show and we got to see what survived in crawl spaces. They had a tarantula that Gavin got to hold and since his daddy was gone to Vegas, we had to take a picture to show him what we did!

Gavin's picts

Gavin on a swing at a park near our house, we went to Starbucks and got coffee, vanilla steamer and snacks and froze our butts off in the wind!
Trying to take a picture of Pikes Peak from my work leaving one morning. It was a beautiful pink color but my zoom doesn't go far.

Gavin trying to climb a tree at a park like the other kids were doing.

Cool man shades!

The "I don't want my picture taken look", it was this one or ones of him blowing spit bubbles or sticking his tongue out so I opted for this.

New here? Hmmmmmmmm.................

Not much is new here, we have been having warm temps in the 60's and enjoying the outside as much as possible. Gavin has been reading more, and I hope liking it better!

He just learned to play WAR and has been having a great time playing that.

He now wants a sugar glider, trantula and hot tub with alternating rainbow lights; all of this thanks to checking out home and garden shows.

So our big new is that Gavin is doing so well in school right now that they are talking about a different first grade. He has surpassed his already set spring semester standards. I am very proud of him!
This first part of the year will be pretty busy for us as:
Gavin turns 6 in Feb and wants Bionicle birthday party,
Grandma Betty turns 80 in March- and we are planning on taking her to the Melting Pot (fondue place) for her birthday and
Rob turns the big 40 and wants nothing done-- hahaha we shall see-- but at least I have some time to think about it!
So I believe that is all for us-- not much here!

Happy Birthday To YOU!!!

Ok, I was hoping to be really good and blog at least daily this year but.... I guess that resolution goes out the window early!

So I guess I will start now by wishing my brother Keven a Happy Birthday.

And then tomorrow-- I will be pre-emptive and wish my brother-in-law DJ a Happy Birthday!

We (Gavin and I) just want to give a shout out to Daddy (Rob) and let him know we miss him and hope he is having fun in Vegas!
Gavin and I have plans for date by catching a movie (Bedtime Stories) and then going to the home and garden show. See if we can do anything new to the house that is relatively cheap!
Hope Everyone has a great weekend and great 2009!
