Gluten Free changes everthing!

The summer of 2012 I found out I had Celiac Disease which is the need to avoid gluten in all things. It has been I life changing thing. In the fall of that year we decided to take Bekah off Gluten as well. A year later we are doing so much better. I am thankful for all the research that has made my life so much easier and I am especially grateful for my friend Jill Nystel  and her blog www.onegoodthingbyjillie.com  for helping us go GF and for all of her great recipes! So now that we have some control over this crazy life we lead I will start posting on this blog again!

Spring 2011

In March for our Authors Night BRANDON MULL came!
It was our biggest night yet! Weston has quite the stack of books to be signed.
I will always be thankful to Brandon Mull, Fable Haven, and Mrs. Hopkins(3rd grade) for helping foster Weston's love for reading!
Sally and I were almost as excited as the kids!
Brandon Mull was great! The signing line went from the senior citizen gym clear back to the young adult section, and he stayed until everyone got their books signed.

For the 3rd grade Disney Program this year,
Bekah was a Pirate in A Pirate's life for me!

She had fun being part of the program and could be heard practicing the songs all spring.

We went to Klint's play "Guys and Dolls" for her birthday.
Klint played a gambler called Harry the Horse. It was a good musical with a lot fun songs.

Weston's Arrow of Light!

Grandma Susy and her Order of the Arrow Tribe helped her with the ceremony.
The young braves had to learn about the 7 qualities needed to be warriors before they could receive their awards.

We drew a arrow on Weston's cheek to remind him to always be straight and true.
Grandma Susy made each of the boys a necklace with special beads to remind them of all they had learned.
Congratulations to
Gunner, Conner, Weston, and Drew
4 Crazy scouts with their Arrows of Light!

Bekah has been taking voice lessons this spring and really likes it.

Weston's 11th

Weston wanted to be surprised for his birthday. He had just finished up his hunters safety class and really hoped for a gun. However, he's not quite old enough for his own yet.
So we surprised him with this cool new Chopper Schwinn(bike).
I made him a camo gun cake!
Which he loved!
His best friend Gunner came to his party,
Lyn also got him some camping stuff, because he is an 11 yr. old scout now and can go on overnights.
He also got his own snowshoes and poles for winter hiking with his Dad.
Weston, blowing out 11 candles!
He had a great birthday and loved all his surprises!
