My dad found out he is CANCER FREE!! He was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer around November. He had surgery to remove it and now after his 3 month check up they found out he is free of cancer. PRAISE THE LORD!
After we finished our party for Opa, Aubrey Rose decided we should throw a party for Auntie Christy (my sister). So, she did. She lined up the balloons just right and then said, "Surprise Titi!" Here is Opa and Aubrey Rose at Titi's surprise party. :)
Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY today OPA!!! We love you soooooooooooo much!!

On Thursday night, they have the PBR bull riding night. Aubrey Rose kept calling the bulls "bulldogs." If the bull got away, she would yell at the horses with the cowboys on them, "Horsey's...the bulldog is over dare!! GO get em!" Blair and Jordan
This was Austin's first rodeo. He slept through the entire thing!
Uncle Bradley and Aubrey Rose
Then Saturday there is the Clovis Rodeo Parade. We got to sit with some wonderful friends. This is Audrey. They are so cute together.
We also got to sit with our sweet friend Julie. Aubrey Rose calls her Juju. When Aubrey came home she kept saying "Juju's party was soooo fun!" HA!! Julie was so sweet and saved spots in front of her dad's office on Pollasky street and she brought drinks and snacks for friends. She is the best! So, Aubrey Rose thought Julie put on the whole "party!" HA!

His smiles are so fun. It doesn't matter to me what they are caused by, we are just soaking them all up.

Jesus died on the cross for us. His body was put in the tomb (an egg shell) and 3 days later the stone was pulled back and his body was gone. HE IS ALIVE!!!
I have kept our project on the table all week, and Aubrey Rose tells me the story now. That is my favorite part of when she tells me the story. Her eyes get all big and excited and she says, "Jesus is ALIVE!!" So precious! We did one other craft. You pretty much only need 2 ingredients...crescent rolls and marshmallows. You can find the recipe online, but I will try to describe it. (Sorry, we weren't focused on the tutorials this time.) :)
We took the marshmallows, rolled them in melted butter. Then, rolled them in cinnamon and sugar. Laid it on the crescent roll, wrapped it up and made the sides tight.
The marshmallow represents Jesus and the roll represents the tomb.
We baked as directed on the crescent roll container. I think 350 degrees for only 15 minutes. Oh, I forgot to tell you...we dipped the top of the rolls in butter and sprinkled more cinnamon and sugar on top. Yummy, yummy!
Here are Aubrey Rose, Christopher and Jadon with our craft.
You probably have everything needed for these at home or improvise with what you do have. So, call a friend or call a family member, get your kids together to teach your children about Jesus. It sure was fun to do together. I promise you, you will feel good.
What a sweet day!!!
