Rehms Reunion

When we were in Texas in April, we had the annual Rehms, my mother's side, reunion. It was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed seeing the kids playing together. The last time we had the reunion at my cousin Charlotte's house, Karis was barely 2 and it was a very rough time. She has blossomed so much since then. I loved seeing her interact with her cousins. I also enjoyed a wonderful visit with my friend Michelle and her family. Their new house is beautiful, just like I imagined it would be. Here are some pictures from the reunion.
The Kids
The grownups
On another note, I am sorry to say that I accidentally erased the other pictures from our trip to Texas. All the pictures from being with Justin's family I some how erased when I was trying to make a collage. If I can get some from Courtney, I will post them soon. I will also have some great pictures from Court's wedding in Florida soon.
My blogging has been very sporadic lately. Hopefully this summer, I will get back on the bandwagon of blogging. We shall see!

Nerf guns and Justin's early birthday

Posted by Picasa
Before we headed to Texas, we celebrated Justin's birthday with a homemade chiffon strawberry shortcake, courtesy of the smitten kitchen recipe. It was very good but very labor intensive. I am just glad it made Justin happy.
Justin also recently bought the kids Nerf guns. Noah can't shoot his, but we have had a great time playing war with each other: Noah and me against Justin and Karis. Karis is a very good shot. She loves to sneak up on me and shot me at any time of the day. She keeps me on my toes.
Things around here have gotten back to normal with Karis finishing her reading, she has learned all her consonant sounds and will start the vowels and learning small words. She is very excited, and we celebrated her finished books with lunch out today and a trip to Target to look at the toys!
I will eventually post pictures from our Texas trip, even though I seemed to have erased the best ones. Sometimes I don't know what the heck I am thinking or doing!
