Melody is away this week so I thought I would put up a few pictures from last week. Melody went to church with the Mabb Fam and was so excited she was waiting by the door. She also had Emilee over to play (she had only asked about 500 times since school has been out). She had a lot of fun and was already planning for the next playdate. The picture of Melody in her chair with some of her animals is the way she is most mornings. She wakes up and likes a glass of juice and then, while I am getting ready, she and and some "friends" watch tv. Sounds like the life, right? She says she has been having a great summer. I appreciate you Chrissy, Debbie, Liz, Shelley, and Tanisha for being so much fun and making Melody feel so welcome in your homes. She loves you all. She says she loves to play, do crafts, swim or play in the water, play kitties, color and just hang out with all of you and your kids. Thanks so much!!!

Father's Day

We had a family dinner Sunday night for Father's day. Uncle Andrew got a game of baseball going for the kids. They all had a great time. Papa and Andrew kept everyone playing the same game and it was fun to see how excited the kids were when they hit the ball. It brought back some great memories of playing baseball with my dad. He has the best pitch ever...the "Dark One" was always hard to hit:) My dad is the hardest working guy I know. He is honest and has a great heart. I love you dad! My Grandpa Angle stopped by and is still as handsome as ever. Jay and Robert are also great dads and very hard workers. We missed Jared (he had to stay behind in Utah) but Andrea filled us all in on what a great dad he is as well. Andrew is my only brother and I think he is one of a kind. He is a chip off the block and is also a very hard worker and he's a lot of fun too. I missed Grandpa Shreve, he is so fun and has the best smile and laugh. I am lucky to have such great guys in the family. Thanks for being such good dads and husbands. I love you all and appreciate all you do! (By the way, I had to use your side profile shot Robert because you wouldn't look at the camera and Dad, I had to use the one of you talking because you wouldn't stop when I wanted your picture....maybe next time you will both smile;)

Lanie Alene & Kylie Sue

Lanie and Kylie are the newest members of the family and are both THE BEST. They are opposites in lots of ways but both so sweet. They got passed around all weekend and were pretty good natured about it. They didn't like the long car rides but were always ready to laugh and play after. I miss you already!!!

Family Weekend

Last weekend my mom, sisters, and a couple babies came to my house to hang out. Andrea and Kylie were here for a week to visit from Utah and Amber was home from Henderson State. Everyone else came up from Safford. We don't ALL get to be together very often so it was a lot of fun. We talked, shopped, talked, shopped and then talked some more. Friday, I had to work but everyone else went shopping and went for pedicures during the day. Later that night, we went to dinner and then to Jesterz, an improv comedy club. It was hilarious. I think everyone thought the "ex-wife" bit was the best :) Saturday was really easy going and random groups went shopping throughout the day. My dad and brother showed up in the afternoon. They had helped someone move to Mesa from Safford so pretty much they ended up playing with the babies and then sleeping all afternoon. That night we all drove to Safford for so we could be with the rest of the family for Father's Day.
