Congratulations Justin!

Justin graduated from the Law Enforcement Academy on Thursday March 29th. We are sooo glad that he is finally finished and our schedules can go back to normal. Not only did we have graduation events on Thursday but we also got hit with a huge spring snowstorm. The storm dumped a little over 14 inches of snow on us. All roads in and out of Douglas were closed causing a lot of people to not be able to make it to the graduation including the key note speakers. So needless to say it was short and to the point. It was sad that not a lot of family of the deputies were able to make it in either. Many of them had to stay an extra night at the academy on Thursday and leave on Friday once the roads were open. We were thankful that Justin's family was able to make it in on Wednesday so they made it to his graduation. I was not able to get a lot of pictures of Justin's graduation due to having to chase around our daughter, but here is one of them! I think Justin's dad and mom got some better ones. Maybe they will send me some and I will get them posted at a later date. Congraulations Justin! We are so proud of you!!!!

New Kitchen Color

For those of you who have been to my house you know that my kitchen was once a bright red. Not a pale red, or pastel or light.....BRIGHT RED! Like tomato red. Although we tolerated it for over 2 years we decided this weekend that it was time to get it painted. We didn't really mind the red, but it was lets just say *WOW*! We chose a light green for the kitchen, it turned out a little more olive green but still we love it! It is much calmer and more soothing than the bright red. Let us know what you think of the new color!

Fun Day At The Park

It was beautiful this past weekend so mom and I took Jyllian to the park. She had a ball playing with all of the playground equipment. She especially liked the slides. We have a small swingset in our backyard which has swings on it, so she was not too interested in playing on the swings. Instead she was much more interested with the things she had not ever played on before. Below are some pictures of her having a great time!
