Flat Abby's Arizona Adventures

My niece, Abby, did a Flat Abby for her class. This is based off of a story about Flat Stanley, a boy who gets flattened and is sent all over the world by price of an envelope. We received Flat Abby after my sister in San Diego, and one of her in-laws in Samoa. Here are a few picture of Flat Abby's Arizona adventures:

Grand Canyon- boy it was cold that day!

Birthday and Baby Blessing Party

The family (minus Darren and mom) with Flat Abby
Jeff and I at the blessing party for Libby/Birthday party for Cassidy
The kids were watching a show and I couldnt' get their attention.



Aubrey and Cassy are only a few months apart...so cute with grammy. Cassy was very tired.
Cassy was excited about her yummy cake.


Cassy didn't understand that she was supposed to blow the candles out and just wanted to hold the balloons on top.



Cassy was so happy with each present she opened.


Adorable baby Liberty (Libby) about two months old.


San Diego Fun

Jeff and I went to San Diego for the weekend...basically one day. We were able to visit my sister's family, my mom, as well as my brother's family. We always enjoy seeing the kiddies.
For some reason Cassidy started the nudey dance and all the kids decided to join in.


Naomi couldn't get enough of the Stratego pieces...we had to convince her we'd take good care so we could play with them.
This is a picture of Aubrey being shocked after getting caught picking a winner.
I love this picture, the three of them are so cute in their giant hug!
I am not even sure what the kids are doing in this picture but they thought it was hilarious. Aubrey is a big helper with her new baby cousin. The four girls trying to scrunch in on the couch.
Cassy couldn't get enough of the camera. Everytime I went to take a picture of the baby she walked in front of the camer and gave me a big smile.

This Little Pinky

My whole life I have had crooked pinkies. Not only are they crooked but for some reason I can not straighten them all the way...I know what a freak. My family and I have always joked about them, telling me that I should get physical therapy to fix them.

I have come to realize just how honest kids are! I was doing flashcards with a few of the 3rd graders at school about a week ago and had something funny happen. One of the boys was doing the flashcards when he yelled out "Mrs. Meyers, there's something wrong with your pinky!" I looked at my pinky, realizing that he was referring to how crooked it was. Then, about one minute later he said still very shocked, "Seriously, I think it's broken!" I had to laugh, because to a young kid it may be scary looking. The below picture doesn't give the crookedness justice, its hard taking a picture with one hand.
