Graduations and Congratulations!

We are so proud of our Graduates! Congratulations- MOMO, Bethany, Isaac, and Cathy!

Julie graduated in September with her Bachelor degree in Psychology. She was not able to attend the graduation since it was in Iowa so we threw her a surprise graduation party. Trae gave the graduation speech and the kids participated. It was fun and we are so proud of her!


We knew she would cry :)

The whole family

You did it!

Trae and I were able to go see Bethany and Cathy's Commencement on May 13th my Birthday. The President spoke at it and it was a really good speech. We would not of been able to go without sweet Ashely watching our kids. Thanks again Ashley.


Look at our Graduate!

We tried to snap a picture when Cathy came on the Jumbo screen but we missed. Trae still got a good Picture of President Obama!

Cathy Graduated with her Masters-Yeah! And her lovely Boyfriend
Courtney Proposed to her Friday Night after Graduation in front of her
friends and family. We are so happy for you both! I was not able to be there

Happy Mothers Day

I woke up on Mother's Day to an excited Parker. Parker and Dad were working on my present and he was excited to share it. Parker would hide and I had to find him. Each time I found him he handed me a letter that said sweet things on it. At the end I had to figure out what word the letters formed. I am not good at this sort of game and Trae forgot the G which did not help so with a little help I figured out it said MASSAGE. Yeah I need one! Thank you my sweet boys. It was a good Mother's Day.

Ella's Blessing Day

Ella Elaine Morris was blessed on May 3, 2009. It was a beautiful day with a beautiful Girl in a beautiful dress.
She looked like an angel. We love you so much Ella! Thank you everyone for coming and enjoying the special day with us.

Parker wanted us to smile like a pirate. That is what this
picture is. I am not much of a pirate I guess.

The whole bunch

After the blessing at the luncheon Ella wore a white outfit Mo Mo got her.

What a day!

Happy Easter

We managed to get a family picture but we could not keep our children dressed up. This was the best one we got.

It has been so fun now that Parker kind of knows what is going on with all the Holidays. He was excited about Easter and he would run and see an egg and say "there's one!" Then he would grab it and bring it to me who was holding his basket. We tried to get him to hold it but he liked his idea better. When he found all the eggs and realized there was candy in them well then that was GREAT! He stuffed his face and then dumped the entire basket on the floor. Ahhhh gotta love him!

Ella just watched the whole thing sitting quietly. She is so sweet and I know she can't wait to join in the fun with her brother one day. We love having her as a part of our family. She is smiling now. Every morning when I say "Good Morning" I get the biggest wide open mouth smile. She is a doll.


Seriously he is the cutest kid ever!

Ella's dress kept riding up. It said it was a 3months but
it did not seem to fit so well. And she did not keep her bow
in her hair. Oh well still stinking cute!
