New nephew born!

Danielle, Derek's sister, had her third baby yesterday. Michael Fotopoulos was 7 lb and 1 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. She is doing very well and so is little Michael. It is so weird that only a year ago she was in California training with the National team. Check out the video I found on her on U tube.

Bend it like "BEN"!!




First full day of Spring soccer arrived. This is Ben's first year to play. He got stuck with the nice masculine pink shirts. The coach called them the Bubble gums. Ben scored 4 goals!! He may be little, but he's a scrapper. Hannah is in an older league learing positions, corner kicks, and other things I know nothing about. Luckily, Derek knows a thing or two from all those years watching his sister.

Massanutten Spring Break 2008



We spent our Spring break this year taking the kids to a resort where Derek grew up taking his vacations. We spent two days at an indoor water park. The kids had a blast. Jonathan and Amy Griffin spent the latter part of the week with us, so we had Hannah 7, Ella 5, Ben 4, Jude 2, and Eve 2 all in one unit. (one baby on the way) NOT ME - Amy is in her second trimester.

Hannah turns 7!!




For Hannah's birthday this year, I took 6 girls to go see "Horton Hears a Who". The girls had a great time. Most of the birthday party took place at the movie theater so I didn't have to entertain 6 and 7 year olds for too long. Thank goodness because the conversation while eating birthday cake consisted of tooting and burping. We should of stayed in the South and maybe the kids would of grown up with more decency.













Minnesota trip





I have so much to catch up on. These are pictures of my new nephew, Jake Dunbar. He was born March 5, 2008. I flew up to Minnesota to meet him and visit my family at the end of March. It was so nice to visit without the kids. I got to sit and hold Jake and spend more time with my nieces and nephews. Averi was in my shadow all weekend. I wanted to post this video of her acting as Hannah Montana.

Easter 2008







Can I just say how bad I am about keeping up with this blog. I am waiting for someone to do a template for me since I stink with computers. At least it will look like I know what I am doing. We spent Easter Sunday with just the 5 of us. It was fun.
