celebrate good times...come on

we have lot's to celebrate in the month of June!
Brian's birthday is the first, Carsyn's birthday is the 9th

we gave him a Nintendo DS...he was beyond excited! It's a pretty cool device but I think the fact that he got one before any of his brothers made it extra special!!!
Him and three friends will be seeing Kung Fu Panda today for his party!

Then, Father's Day...the boys made Dad an extra large "Sundae on Sunday" (a weekly tradition at our house). It was so big, he couldn't even finish it! It's in the freezer waiting for him the next time he makes it home.

Now, Kindergarden Graduation isn't a regular June event at our house but it is this year. Gavin will be graduating on Friday...isn't he too cute in his cap and gown?

We'll be having company for the big event...my Mom and my Grandma will be arriving on Thursday. A few sets of our neighbors will be attending the ceremony as well. What our guests don't know, is that Gavin was chosen by his teacher to lead the class in the singing of O Canada, with the mic, at the beginning of the ceremony. I am soooo excited for him! My fear is that he'll think he's playing Rock Band and belt it out...lol!! I'm sure however he does, will be great! Watch for pics to come of that.
Then, on the 30th, Zack will celebrate his birthday! Fifteen years old!!! Can't believe it!

See what I mean...June is crazy busy for us and that's without all the year end activities/field trips and studying for finals!

Well, if I am going to take 4 9 year olds to a movie, I should get off the computer and get ready to go!

Over and out!

sheesh...over a week since my last post...that's not good!
I ended up with a cold and a touch of the flu that took me out for most of the last week, plus Brian was home for 4 days so we were busy with house and yard stuff!
Carsyn had 2 days of football last weekend, which was interesting to watch. He's loving it though, so that's good!
Brian celebrated his 41st birthday...we enjoyed a yummy DQ ice cream cake!!!
Carsyn is turning 9 tomorrow and this devilishly handsome young man will be 15 at the end of the month!

It's almost as bad as Christmas as far as spending goes around here for June...don't forget Father's Day falls in there too!!!

I was surprised that Zack let me take these pics actually but he did and they'll be appearing in a layout coming soon! It's harder to get pics of your kids as they get older..at least I am finding that anyway. I'm not around at the school events near as often and heaven forbid you bring out the camera when he's got guys over...lol!!

So, the yard is looking good...flowers are coming along nicely! Love having color in the yard! Our patio should hopefully be built and ready to enjoy for our Canada celebrations we're hosting. A few other details are being taken care of on Bri's next set of days off (if he gets them) and then I'll share some pics.
I'll also be sharing the layouts of the characters we met while on our holiday...mostly Disney but some from Universal Studios as well. I wanted to get them done before the school year ended cause the boys want to take the album for show and share...I think there are only 3 left to do!

I've been subbing at the school...a lot...and I love it!!
The boys are anxiously awaiting for the 27th when, and I quote, "Schools out for summer!!" However, they need to get through their exam schedule first. Zack and Reilly have a pretty intense week+ of tests to write. Gavin will be done on the 20th, after his graduation ceremony. His cap and gown photos came back..next post I'll scan and share that too.

We need to get ready to head off to a birthday party, so I gotta run!

Till next time....I'll be seeing ya!!
