This was the winner for our family picture this year- (despite Tommy's funny face)! We took our own pictures again- not bad for setting the timer, right? (Please say yes!)
Thomas made up for his funny faces this year by giving us this extra nice smile!
Allison looks more grown up everyday.
Here's just one of our outakes this year. I don't have the energy to post all of them this year!
Okay, here's one more. :) Typical of our days at home. Tommy teasing his sisters and me trying to stay calm.
Allison's All-Region Choir. She's on the front row- second from the right. We started to see why All-Region is such a big deal here. Kids from 33 schools auditioned for this! We're very happy that we made the investment in her black dress last year.
This is a quick 16 second snip of one of their songs. They sound GREAT!
We thought we got there early, but ended up on the back row.
This is random, but kind of cool- this hot air balloon went right over our house! It was so low, we could see the huge fire inside and the people in the basket. The kids took lots and lots of pictures.
Rebecca also had her share of singing and performing this month. The 4th and 5th grade classes at her school performed "Kickin' It With Africa"- with lots of fun singing and drums based on African music and based from the World Cup games held in Africa last year. (Becca is on the back row in the grey t-shirt.)
Here's a sample of the fun they had that night!
Mom and Tommy in the audience. This is another typical sight when we attend public events. Tommy gets a little antsy!
