in their home this year.
We had a small group this year. Only 40!!!
(usually have between 40 & 60)
WHAT A SPREAD!!! GREAT JOB BY EVERYONE!
After all that food it's time to sit back and watch the Cowboys.
OR, make a slide out of mattresses.
Monica and John (a wanna be Cowboy.)
Check out that buck tooth on John. Too funny!
What's that e-mail address to the Irving Police Dept. I bet those co-workers of John's would LOVE to get a hold of these pictures.
Instead of WATCHING those Cowboys play these guys decided to play their own game.

Here he is pitching.
Here he is in the running part of the competition coming in at home plate.
Kara "crossed over" from being a Daisy in Girl Scouts to being a Brownie.
This is a picture of the Girl Scout troop that Kara is in.
Bryan was selected to be on the 5th Grade Track Team and he ran in two races.
This one was the 50M.
This one was the 4x50M Relay. He came in 4th in both. I think he did pretty darn good being that he has NEVER run track before.
Kara had her recital in May 2009 where she did two for the first time.
This was her first year to be in Cheer.
She loved being in Cheer!!!
She was in Ballet for the 4th time.
She is so good on the stage. She LOVES it!!!
Posing outside before the show starts.
Waiting for stage time.
These pictures were from Mother's Day lunch at Jenny's house. Reese is such a funny little girl. She was looking at me through her handmade glasses.
My mom (Beverly), Molly (my aunt) and Ma-Maw my grandmother (my mom's mom)
Kara's end of school picnic at Roger's Park.
She LOVED her 1st Grade teacher Mrs. Faraci.
Some of her best girl friends.
Easter morning at St. Andrews with the Fitzpatrick's, Rao's and Cody
What traditional fun!
Oh where oh where could those little eggs be???
That sneaky little Easter Bunny.
Easter morning after finding eggs outside in the front yard.
Wow...that Easter Bunny really went all out!!!!
(See next 4 pictures)
Well, poor Kara's birthday falls around Easter every years so we had to tie in her 7th birthday celebration with Easter Egg Decorating. Kara loved her Hannah Montana birthday cake.
AND her new Hannah Montana bedding.
Kara's first Girl Scout "camp-out". Roasting marshmallows.
"Camping-out" on the floor of the church.
Bryan pitched for the first time this season and did pretty good but Daddy wants to keep him behind the plate as the catcher.
