Past week in pictures

I have not had time to update on all the fun things we did this past week. So here is a quick synopsis in pictures.

On Friday, my brother John, graduated from the Marine Corps Boot Camp. We could not go, but we got to pick him up at the airport. He will be home for 10 days of leave before returning for Combat Training, and then it is on to MOS school. He is going to be a linguist. We are so proud of John and thrilled to have him home for a few days.
Saturday afternoon we took Kirsten to Barnum and Bailey's and Ringling Brother's Circus. We had such a great time. The elephants were Kirsten's favorite.
Watching the Circus with daddy.

On Friday, Kirsten had her birthday pictures taken. I cannot wait to see the proofs. Nancy did such a fantastic job. After pictures, we had a cookie decorating playdate at our house. The kids had fun frosting and then eating their cookies.

On Wednesday we went to Nancy's and the kids planted flowers. Then she had them make peanut butter and marshmallow beards. Kirsten and all the other girls would not smear the peanut butter all over their faces, but the boys loved it.

Friday night I took Jeremy's sisters, Kacey and Megan, to see the Legally Blonde Musical in Dallas. We went out to eat afterwards and so we were out way late, which I am not used to anymore. It was so much fun to be just the three of us again, it brought back a lot of memories.

We are enjoying having Kacey and John home and look forward to spending as much time with them as we can while they are here.
