Mikenna~2nd Place 6th Grade Girl~Reindeer Fun Run!

Mikenna participated in her middle school's Reindeer Fun Run.  She placed 2nd out of all of the 6th grade girls.  She received a movie gift card and a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer stuffed animal and a certificate.  She left for school this morning saying she was going to place and get some prizes....sure enough she came home all smiles!

Happy 41st Birthday Toby!!

Happy 41st Birthday Toby!  We love and appreciate you!
 Planking....with daddy's help!
 Jumping high.....with daddy's help!
We took Toby to Fujiyama's for his birthday!  We all sang happy birthday to him and he had a special piece of cake with a candle to blow out!  I think we embarrassed him singing to him in the restaurant....mission accomplished!  :)

 Fujiyama for Toby's birthday!
 Mikenna loves to wrestle with her dad....birthday wrestling is the best!

 41 years old!  Blowing out the candles with our kiddos!
