Has it been that long?


Wow has it been a while since I posted last? It’s spring already! It has been a very busy winter. I have been so busy with my children, violin & guitar lessons, school activities. Plus, all three of them had mono over winter. Brittany was the worst. Thankfully they are all doing much better now and are all back in school.

David graduates from high school in just less than three months. He is looking into going into IT work. He is really good at computers, graphics, etc.  He has been working hard on his Senior Project which is an intern program the students have to complete to graduate. 

Brittany and Kaylee we are considering sending them to catholic school. I just feel they would benefit more there with their education. Working on applications for them and for David for college.  

This week is Alan and David’s birthday’s on March 31st. David is going to be 18!! I just can’t even believe how fast this time seemed to go by. We are having a small get together for them next Sunday.

Our 20th wedding anniversary is coming up in May.  Alan just bought me a beautiful new engagement ring and wedding band. It is so beautiful.  The picture I took really does it no justice. It is so bright and clear. It is a 1.8 ct. diamond engagement ring (1 ct. in middle and .80 on sides) and a .70 diamond wedding band. My original set was lost some years back when I had to have emergency surgery.  They were cut off and then lost.  I was so heartbroken.  We couldn’t replace them right away so I have to say it was worth the wait.  Though I would give anything to have my original set back.

Waialae Beach
Our trip to Hawaii is also coming up rather quickly. Alan and I have a nice private beach ceremony planned on Waialae Beach in Hawaii to renew our wedding vows at sunset on May 20th. Even though we won't have anyone there with us, we are having a professional videographer and photographer to record it onto a DVD and a wedding album also to bring back and share. This is the first time we have been away this long since before David was born. Usually we did 2-5 day trips before but this time we will be gone for 14 days! A few days in Oahu and then we leave right out of Honolulu for our  7 day cruise to all the islands. Then another few days back in Oahu. Alan and I are so excited and can’t wait!  It is a much needed trip for the both of us.

Alan and I have been working very hard since the beginning of the year with the American Heart Association. They asked me at the beginning of the year to be community teams head chairperson. I was honored. I was told it was because I got the award for Top Community Teams Captain at the awards breakfast we went to. It has been a lot of work but I am enjoying all of it. We are planning some great events for "Kaylee’s Heart" as well with the proceeds going to the American Heart Association. More details will be coming as we finalize everything.  We have a website up at www.KayleesHeart.com and also now a Facebook page as well at Kaylee’s Heart Facebook.
