A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

BSF....Back in the swing of things!

This morning we finally got to go back to BSF. It started two weeks ago, but the first week I was out sick, and last week was our first JNJ Children's Consignment Sale of the season. We have another one in our town next week. The kids and I both had a great time. We are studying Moses this year. Which I believe covers Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers. KG came home today telling me she learned about Jonah....no Mosa! CT explained the whole story of baby Moses, and then at the end exclaimed, "And you know what....God had a plan!" It was precious!

This is the church where we attend BSF. If you are looking for a Bible Study to get involved in, I highly recommend this. They are held all over the country, it runs during the school year, and is off when school is off. Also, if you have small children from 2-5years, they have a WONDERFUL program for them too. Plus it's FREE!! They also have night classes, and classes for older kids.
CT and KG excited about returning to BSF!!
Sibling love.....this didn't last long. :)
KG and Mommy. CT took this for us.

Curious George Comes to Town

At 7:30 this morning, KG was in my room wanting to know if it was time to go and see Curious George. :) We got up, got dressed, had a little breakfast, and headed to the library to see Curious George, who would make his appearance around 10am. We were up in plenty of time. :)

Ms. Pat our Children's Librarian read us, "Curious George Gets a Medal".
Here comes Curious George.
KG could not contain her excitement and ran up to give him a hug. CT hung out in the background with me.
CT was more content to cover pictures of George with glue and glitter. He also made a medal just like George got that is hanging around his neck.
KG with Curious George......again. I think we had several photo shoots, and a lady from the paper took her picture also.
CT didn't want much to do with George, BUT he made sure George saw his new shoes! :)

The Big Apple!

Well, I am finally getting back to the blog. We have been out of town celebrating our 8th anniversary, and this week has been crazy. T and I headed to NYC to hang out and relax. We had a great time. We were also able to spend some time with my brother who lives there. It was great to see him!

View from our hotel. Ground zero 7 years later. They have built one building over to the right, but that is all so far.
T and I at the top of Top of the Rock. The view was beautiful from up there. I liked it better than the Empire State Building. There wasn't anything to block your view. It was really windy though.

My brother Chris and me. Still super windy. My hair was everywhere!

U.S. Open. T and I headed to the Open on Monday. It was really cool. We watched Nadal play.
T surprised me and took me to Tavern on the Green for our anniversary. Had I known we were going I would have dressed a little nicer. :) T assured me that they would take our money no matter how we were dressed! ha!

View of the gardens from our table.

Crazy Times Square. There are so many people in this area at all times.
Macy's! :) and the Empire State Building.
Ellis Island. We took the boat over. I wanted to see this place since this is where my great grandfather came through. It was pretty cool to see.
The Statue of Liberty. I love her! :)
View of Manhattan today without the twin towers.
We were also able to take in several Broadway shows, but you are not allowed to take any pictures. So I followed the rules. :) We had a great time, and will be back soon I am sure! :)
