Morgan's winning video

Beauty is.... My Morgan
Morgan with her Trophy and DVD
Abi (Morgan's good friend) and Morg, both won in their category :)

Me and My Girl. I surprised her at home with a rose and balloons. the school had called me earlier in the day to let me know she would be getting an award. so I made sure she had lots of support and some of her biggest fans.

Uncle Willie, Aunt Jill, Aunt Chey, Grandma Lu, Aunt Maggie, Papa Bill, Shauna (my Dad's wife) and Me holding the winner!!! Keegan, Breckyn, Jaxon & Ryker were there too (just not around LOL)

Well I have a lot to post and all happened before this...but I have tried to share this video with my friends and family in many ways and they have not worked. I decided to go this route instead. I feel it very important to show off Morgan's talents that she clearly got from me LOL. This was a "Reflection" assignment. I am not sure what it is all about. We have never done it before..but the theme this year was Beauty is...
Morgan of course chose Nature, which is no surprise as she LOVES the earth and animals. There were 190 students that participated in her school and I think about 25 are going on to Districts, which includes Morgan. I am so proud of her and her hard work. She took over 200 pictures for about 2 weeks. They are mostly from around our home, Southern Utah and also Arizona. She was careful in putting the pictures to fit with the words. It was a great night!! Love you Morg!!!!

*make sure you turn off my music on the blog so you can hear Morgan's


Poor Keeg

My Poor Little Boy!!
So, the same hour that I got a phone call about Morgan's award... I got another one from the school about Keegan. They told me that he had had an accident on the playground. Sinking heart instantly. But Miss Caroline told me he was ok and that he had ice on his eye. I asked if i needed to come and she said she didn't think so. I called back an hour later to check on him and she said that he was very tough and had gone back to class. Apparently while playing Wall Ball, he and another kid collided and Keegan hit the boy's head with his eye. She also asked if I was going to take a picture of it. I said of course. She giggled and said "he told us you would. He said you had ruined him when he was little with all the pictures." I laughed so hard. Keegan LOVES pictures of himself, USUALLY. Today not so much.
This is the first picture, the only way I could get it was by getting in it with him. He has a very pretty shiner. Hopefully he is not so upset about it tomorrow :)
