Caitlyn just had her first orchestra concert and she did great. She's in intermediate orchestra even though she just started this year. Imagine my surprise when she walked out on the stage and sat right in the front first seat. I thought I was going to have to search for her but we were able to see her with no problem. We're always do period r of his confident she is. Later when I asked why she had that seat she said "nobody else wanted to sit there, so I did!" :-)

Thanksgiving 2014

We had a great Thanksgiving this year with just our family. Mom put on do much hard work to make the event special for the kids. She had plenty of new games including pool, ping pong, and badminton. It kept the kids busy for hours and they enjoyed each other's company. It was the perfect way to spend the day.
Then it was of to black Friday shopping for Laura, Abby, Melissa and I. Black Friday never fails to disappoint, and I
It's because we have so much fun together.

Girls time

Since Melissa and Laura were in town we took a little time to get a pedicure. It's fun having some time without the kids together

Standage reunion

For the first time in years we had a Standard Family party and it was so much fun! It was great to see so many faces again. Melissa and Steve and aunt Carla and uncle Paul cams into town for the event and it was great seeing them as well. It wouldn't have been complete without uncle Don's homemade rootbeer.We'll definitely have to make this a more regular event.
